Product Details

You don't have to be a bridesmaid—or even be invited to a wedding—to wear this cute cocktail dress. It's made from a lightweight silk chiffon that drapes beautifully and takes colors particularly well. The deep (but totally wearable) V-neckline was hand draped for a flattering effect and the shorter skirt lets you show off your legs. If you are a bridesmaid, this is the dress you'll definitely wear again.

Petite Heidi dress in silk chiffon

Petite Heidi dress in silk chiffon is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely elegant dress - if you get the right fit I typically wear a 2P, 4P or 2 in J Crew dresses. I am an upside down triangle (broad shoulders and back) and slim hips. 5 ft tall, 34A. Based on the reviews, I sized up to the 6P (which I have never done before) and it seems to fit well, with some ease through the torso (but I don't think it looks sloppy). I would have liked to try on the 4P for comparison, but it was not available, but I think it would have been too tight for comfort - I don't like to feel squeezed or compressed in my clothes. I usually have a problem with the J Crew sheaths in that there is too much fabric in the hips. Because this dress has a fuller skirt, I don't have to worry about that issue. The dress is lovely - makes me think of Ava Gardner or Grace Kelly in a 1950's movie. My only qualm is whether in the context of 2016 it looks like a bridesmaid dress (albeit a lovely bridesmaid dress) and whether I can actually wear it in a non-bridesmaid setting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Dress - Great for Petites I ordered this dress in 00 petite, soft peach for my brother's wedding. I was very pleasantly surprised by this dress. The quality and fit are impeccable.I'm not always a huge chiffon fan, but this dress is beautiful. Normally I have to get items from j.crew altered, as they can be too long or too boxy on me, but not this dress. The petite proportions are just right. I like that I can wear a normal bra with this dress and feel comfortable (I won't be pulling up a strapless dress all night). However, if you are bustier, the top part of the dress might be too tight. The soft peach is really pretty. It looks more like a light ballerina pink in person. I'm still pretty tan from the summer, and I really like the color with my tan skin

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Big in bust, tight in waist I ordered a petite 2 and a petite 4. The petite 2 would not zip up all the way, which was unusual for me in J. Crew dresses. The petite 4 zipped up nicely, but the bust was gaping. And the petite 4 still felt tight in the ribs. Oddly cut dress. For reference, I am 5' 2", 113lbs, and a 34A.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from cute dress fit is odd I really loved the look of this dress online. It took me a few times to get the size right. It is very snug in the ribs and for some reason my usual size did not fit at all. Maybe I have very wide ribs but overall I am a pretty petite person. Even the size up was snug.
