Rated 4 out of 5 by Knoons Good standard piece
The neckline is plunging and flattering but not at all distasteful or too revealing. The fit on the bust is just about right for a healthy C. The length is perfect for a size two, on a 5'5 athletic frame and hits just above the knee.
I think this dress has a classic feel to it, its silhouette, timeless and appropriate for day or night events/ work or otherwise with the right cover up.
The only hang up: The pleating just below waist seems unnecessary and adds weight/volume where I wish it didn't.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jules A Classic!
I wore this dress to a formal wedding in october and it was PERFECT! I am about 5'5 130lbs and the size 4 fit perfectly! it was very flattering, and it is just the right amount of chest area exposed. I had very little to no cleavage at all (I am about a C cup). the dress fell right below my knees, and the band under the bust made the dress even more flattering. I got so many compliments, I would def. recommend this dress.

My daughter wore a 2 in another style that had a fuller skirt but, the 4 fit her in this style. The pockets are a bonus!

Rated 2 out of 5 by raah too small in the bust
Once again JCrew does not cut dresses and blouses for women with an average bust. I'm a C cup 4-6 dress size, the bottom fit perfectly but the front was too low cut and wayyy too tight, suffocating around my bust. I would try the Sara cut and hope the fit is more appropriate.

I usually wear a size 4 so after reading the reviews I ordered up a size. The dress was still too small in the waist. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to return it or exchange it because I bought it as a final sale item. I am so disappointed as I buy a lot of close from J. Crew. Now I own a brand new dress that will just sit in the closet. Ive had a few girlfriends try on the dress for size, and it's too small. Way to small for what they advertised as a size 6.
