Product Details

Origami-like folds and a cummerbund-style waist give this strapless shift dress a dose of modern dimension. The sweetheart neckline flatters most figures, and secret boning at the bust keeps it from sneaking down. Crafted from our crowd-pleasing cotton cady cloth (beloved for its crisp feel), this is one that's sure to have legs long after the ceremony ends.

Rated 2.5 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Small Bust/Cheap Zipper I had to return this dress and go up a size because the bust seems to run a little small. If you have a chest at all, I would either go up a size from your usual size or consider another option. If you go up a size to fit your bust it may not be flattering on your lower half. Also, the zipper was extremely difficult to zip and not because the dress didn't fit. At one point, I thought I had broken it. The zipper seemed cheaply made. It's a really cute dress though!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Adorable dress- but some big problems I really wanted to love this dress, but it had too many issues and I sent it back. As other reviewers have noted, the zipper is terrible. My husband had to use pliers to get it zipped and unzipped, and I was really afraid that it would break or that I was going to get stuck in it. As for the fit, it was small in the bust, and unfortunately the pleat in the skirt poofed out and kind of made it look like I had a belly (which I certainly do not!). For reference, I always wear a size 4 in J.Crew dresses (5'7", 130lbs, 34C). July 17, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Zipper super difficult I also bought this dress in multiple sizes and while the bottoms fit me fine, the zipper was so difficult!! I had to have 2 people help me - one to hold the fabric together and the other to fight to zip it up. the proportion of the built in bra is just way off with the size of the dress. Such a shame because it would be the perfect dress. June 15, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by great dress with tricky zipper I purchased two colors; one orange and one navy. They are a little snug on the chest (125/127lbs, 5"5', 34B) but overall the fit looks perfect. I purchased size 0 and 2 - I usually wear size 4 so I would say purchase size 2 if you have wide hips if not get size 0. You don't need to wear a bra because it holds everything. As for the zipper, you need to carefully zip up - when I zip, I do it in layers; there are many folds where the zipper is so you need to push the cloth and zip a little and then repeat the process. I recommend the dress for anybody looking for classy outfit. March 30, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Raquel Dress in Cotton Cady This is a very sharp dress! I love the feel of the fabric! My only trouble with the dress is with the zipper. It sticks really easily and I require help getting it done up.....but I am looking forward to wearing it in my sister's wedding! July 8, 2014
