Rated 2 out of 5 by curlysue Curvy ladies beware
I bought it for an upcoming wedding. The bride wanted us to wear dresses from this line, and I tried them all on and they all looked terrible on me, but this seemed the most workable. The photo of this dress is very misleading. It looks like the dress goes right up to the model's arm pits, but on me, it exposes about two inches of flesh on either side of my arm pits. I'm 5'3 and normally wear a size 8. I say this to explain that while I'm not skinny, I am definitely not obese. However, in this dress, I am a whale. There is so much excess fabric in the skirt, and the straps are so long you can see most of my chest. I don't think alterations are going to help much, as the chest is so tight taking it up will be tough. Perhaps this works on women with more slender frames, but if you're even a little busty and fleshy, this probably won't work. It also runs about a size and half too small. I really wish I did not have to wear this dress in public.

Nice dress and color. I normally wear a size 10 and this one ran small in the chest. Not every one is flat in that area. I would recommend going up a size or two if you have a chest. I am a DD and definitely do not fit maybe if I were a B cup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Maggie Perfect for wedding guest or wedding party
Ordered this dress after buying another dress elsewhere that didn't work at all. I'm a little busty (36DD), so I ordered up a size (12) to make sure everything would fit. And it did! Perfectly! The 12 is a little bit looser on my waist because I ordered up, but you can't even tell when it's on. Love J. Crew, and this is just one more reason why!

Rated 4 out of 5 by rosy89 Adorable dress, very small in the bust
This is a really cute dress and the quality is great. I'm purchasing it because I'm a bridesmaid, but I'm happy because I can actually wear it again (mainly just to other weddings, but still!).
The one issue I encountered was with fit--I'm a size 16 and am having to exchange for an 18 and will need to get it tailored at the waist, because the bust runs small. Small price to pay for a pretty dress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Janice Perfect dress for an outside summer wedding
I bought this dress for an outside summer wedding and was a little hesitant to buy something online since I am so hard to fit. I ordered the dress in a 12 petite and was disappointed that it was too small. I liked the quality so much I decided to order a larger size. I needed a 14 petite but unfortunately they didn't have it so I went to a regular size 14 which of course was too big. Sandrine at the JCrew in the Short Hills Mall was a huge help and went above and beyond to help me. She had it altered and it fits perfectly. Can't wait for the wedding!
