Rated 5 out of 5 by KateClevend Lovely dress for work, ran big for me
Just arrived today! I'm a fan of the JCREW Italian sheath dress, which has a little stretch, so I ordered this in the same size 2 Tall (white). I am 127 lbs, 5'6 for reference. It fit well with a little room in hips, bust and waist though so I am returning for a zero as it is too big overall. I also found the tall came quite a bit below the knee so the extra length of the tall was not necessary in this item's case. Though I didn't try it on outside,it looked like the white linen was not sheer, and I couldn't see the nude bra beneath. The material (comparable to a light, textured micro tweed) despite being well packaged was quick to wrinkle so I'd consider starching carefully or at least steaming it well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JCrewGirl Love the dress; sad that I have to send it back...
I love this dress and couldn't wait to get it. As the other reviewer mentioned, it runs large through the upper body and waist. I am consistently a 2 in J Crew dresses, but the 2 is at least one size too big for me. I'm sending it back to try the 0 and am hoping it will fit like a glove. The dress itself is absolutely beautiful.

This is a beautiful and very flattering styled dress. I normally wear a size 6 or 8 depending on the brand and found the size 6 in this dress to be much too tight. I do not feel, as some other reviews have said, that it runs large. Perhaps the smaller sizes do. Unfortunately the size 8 in white is now sold out. I'm 5'5, 128 pounds and have an evenly proportioned hourglass figure. I recommend you order your usual size.

Beautiful dress ! I am a size 2 regular (5'4 and 120 pounds) but this dress runs a bit large on breast and shoulders. I'm returning it for a size 0. Hopefully it will fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by hopingforsun Beautiful and flattering dress
I love J. Crew dresses but sometimes it's difficult to find them that aren't too dressy. I work with fashion companies but they have a very casual dress code, so I want to wear dresses but don't want to feel too dressed up. This dress is perfect in the linen and the style is very flattering. It's true to J. Crew dress size - I always wear a 00. I will say I wear a 2 in shorts and an XS in tops, but dresses consistently are 00 (sheath and shift styles). The light blue is very pretty and the 00 is not tight in the butt or stomach - just lose enough to not feel self conscious. Hard to bend down, but doable. A winner - I would love to see this style duplicated in other forgiving and not too dressy fabrics.
