Striped Keyhole-Back Dress

Striped Keyhole-Back Dress is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this dress! I got this dress in a XXS and the fit is perfect! Like others have said, if you're looking for something fitted, this isn't the right dress for you. It's a boxier fit but still flattering. I'm just under 5'3" and around 105lb and don't find myself drowning in this dress...I think it totally depends on how your weight is distributed. I'm super small up top and a little rounder around the hips and the fit looks very similiar to the model. The sleeves are DEFINITELY not that long (I would say 3/4 sleeve) and the length is nowhere near that short on me. Nice thick fabric, cute keyhole detail and you just can't go wrong with stripes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks great! Bought this in my usual large at my local store - it is definitely a shift dress and is not fitted in the waist, so if that isn't the look you're going for, don't get it! It is a really heavy material which is perfect for Seattle spring. The sleeves in the photo are misleading - they are nowhere near as long on me as they are on the model. They're like a long 3/4 length sleeve. I love the dress though!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Easy Dress Firstly, I love the weight of this dress. Its not too light and its cozy without making me hot. The sleeves are more like 3/4 sleeves on me, but I think I have long arms. The length is great, not too short but also I don't look matronly. It's definitely a little roomy, and I'm grateful for that and the stretch that the dress has as I have a bigger chest and a lot of things are normally tight on me in that area. Not this dress! Its really comfortable. The keyhole back is a little big and it doesn't lay flat on my back but I also am really not bothered by it. It's such an insignificant detail to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Quality and Adorable! This dress is amazing! It's so simple but extremely flattering the the keyhole back is such a nice touch. Great material - nice and thick but not stiff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Spring dress I like how the dress is so comfortable and easy to wear. The small slit in the side is nice detail along with the keyhole in the back. I'm 4 11 and the xs fits me very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You won't want to take it off! SO comfortable! I was worried this was going to be a fit for the taller, more slender girls. (I'm 5,2 130lbs) and it was perfect, The material is very nice and great quality. The only thing is the key-hole bit sticks out a bit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect transitional piece! I got the XXS, am 5.4 and 100 lbs. It was a perfect fit and not too tight or constricting. Love how it has a keyhole back to add a little detail. Would not recommend for the non athletic type.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great dress Love this dress. The fabric is good quality and substantial. Love the stripes and the detail in the back. Keep in mind the length is casual and not work-appropriate. This dress is very versatile and comfortable. It is not form-fitting like it is on the model.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love it! I am honestly surprised that I keep seeing such negative reviews. I am actually wearing this today and I love how comfy it is and how cute it looks on. I am a 32DD and have a small waist and I took an XS in this, which is my normal size. I could have maybe done the XXS but this fits perfectly as is for a shift dress. I love it and i think it is super cute on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Heavy-weight shift dress The fabric is thick so it's perfect for cooler spring weather. The product picture makes it look like more of a body-con-ish-long-sleeve type number. In real life, the sleeves are three-quarter length and the the shape is more boxy through the waist. I'm not disappointed! I can't stand tight dresses that are too short. This falls mid-thigh in length, so it's not too matronly. If you're looking for a heavier, casually sophisticated dress: go with this one!
