Rated 3 out of 5 by Professora Hippy not Hip
This dress could work for a taller woman with more slender hips. The skirt portion of this dress is really full (lots of fabric), and so for a shorter woman (5' 3") with hips and booty, this dress made me look shorter, hippier and dumpier than I like, especially when combined with the above-the-knees length which created a wide-as-I-am-tall effect--a look I generally try to avoid. I ordered it in Navy and the eyelet is pretty without being too cutesy or little girlish. Sizing, I would say, runs a little large.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SourthernGirlInNewEngland Great All Purpose Dress
I love this dress, but I'm glad I made it in to the store to try it on before ordering it in the color I wanted. I think it runs large. I'm curvy with a small waist and in most J.Crew dresses that I buy for work, I buy an 8 because the silhouettes are more slender through the hip. In a-line skirts and dresses, I buy a 6, but in this dress I needed a 4. Not only was the waist too large in a 6, but it gaped slightly in the back. The length of the 4 was also more appropriate for me. I would have had to hem the 6 an inch or so. I'm 5'6 and the 4 hit right at the top of the knee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by foorple Runs a tad large than their typical size
I usually wear a size 2 for J. Crew. Size 0 fitted me best for this dress. The waist and chest width is just right for me ( 27.5", 34"). Some people might find the skirt too voluminous, but I find it's perfect. (I do have a boyish figure and relatively narrow hips, so that might be why.) The chest line is high without looking dowdy, which I'm very thankful for. It's effortlessly feminine, without being overtly frilly. Frankly, this is the most exciting dress I've seen from J. Crew in a while. It's a keeper.

Very pleased with this purchase. The dress was well made and the fit was perfect. I'm 5'8" and have an hourglass shape. I ordered this dress in a size 14. Although it was a tad loose, I find that I prefer that for a summer dress. It is very versatile too! Dressed up perfectly with heels and accessories but also was a perfect match for flip flops.

The dress looks so cute on the model and hanger... But it makes your hip look 2 size bigger... No women would appreciate that! Definitely, it is not for smaller women!
