Rated 4 out of 5 by HBPineapple Vibrant; Runs Large
I'm crazy about this dress. I'm crazy about this pattern, and this dress showcases it so well. It's much more vibrant in person.
If runs quite large. I'm normally a 12 in J. Crew dresses - and at 5 months pregnant, I just purchased a 10 in this dress. My store initially only had up to a size 6, and the size 6 fit over my pregnant belly, and very nearly zipped all the way up. All this to say - the body is very generous. The ONLY fitted portion is the top band of the dress (this was a little hard for me to tell from the photos), and there is no give/stretchiness to the top band. The material is a tad heftier than I had imagined, and it is not lined. I am 5'5", and the dress comes to floor exactly when I am barefoot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mariej Cute dress - does it run large or what?
I wasn't sure what size to order - since so many reviews said it ran large - I normally wear a size 2/4 so was curious if I should order down to a 0 ... I ordered both the 0 and the 2 and there wasn't a ton of difference in size. As other reviewers state - there is no give/stretch to the band around the chest ... the 0 was just a tad tight (but could have worked if the 2 wasn't available# and felt tight when I took a deep breath so I am going to go with the 2 - both are similar lengths and hit me just below the ankle #so my feet show) ... I am 5'9" 140 lbs 34C/32DD bra size. -- one nice thing is that I tried it on with a normal bra and the straps of the dress perfectly cover my bra straps - am very happy with the dress.

jcrew dresses always run one size large on me - so i ordered a size down and it was perfect - definitely not a form fitting or super flattering dress... but i got it to lay around and be comfy in - wear to the pool, etc.. and it's perfect for all of that. love the pockets!

This was very long for my 5'5" hight. While I like this print, this dress has no shape whatsoever. I thought it looked like I had wrapped a sheet around my body. I wish I had the body of a model but since I don't, I returned the dress.

Took this dress to Jamaica and wore it in the evening at a nice hotel and then every morning for my walk in the country side. It looked beautiful among the bougainvilleas.
