Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE This dress is perfect and true beautifully. The only issue is it appears a little see-through, but other than that it's a beautiful piece!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great edgy shirtdress I'm not sure what the other reviewers are talking about when they say the dress is see through. It's a good thickness, not too sheer, but also the perfect lightweight cotton for a southern vacation. I'm 5'5" and have an hourglass shape with curvy hips, and unlike most dresses cut like this, it is flattering and doesn't make me look like a tent! The sleeves are beautiful, and I can't wait to pair it with sandals and some layered necklaces for the summer, then booties in the fall!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic summer statement piece... I read the reviews on this dress and was expecting a slight disappointment with the fabric but I found that it wasn't see-through after all. Although I did wear a full length slip just because. I love the's lightweight and perfect for the summer months. The very first complement I received on the dress the first day I wore it was from a guy and I think that says something!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Summer dress I like this dress. I bought it to wear as a tunic over a pair of pants. So the sheerness doesn't really bother me. And with a nude colored bra, it's not a broken on the top. The sleeves are so cute. I wish it had pockets. It would have been the prefect dress/tunic with pockets. It runs a bit large.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dont be fooled Don't be fooled. When I took it out of the package I thought it was terrible. Then I tried it on and it looks super cute.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sheer, but adorable As previously mentioned, this dress is SHEER. You can see everything, even your nude underwear. Luckily, I had a nude woven slip skirt that was perfect for this dress, but if you don't have some kind of a woven slip, this will not work. Yes, you'll need a WOVEN slip, as this dress will cling to your knit slip. Style is ADORABLE. It's perfectly loose, but not too big to the point of being unflattering. Slightly short in the front, but Medium was fine for my 5'7" frame. I will definitely rock this dress this summer!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute but, where are the pockets I love loose dresses for the summer. I especially love them when they have pockets! I was very disappointed to get my dress and to discover no pockets! Ugh! It does have them in the picture. Cute but bummed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super cute...runs big I was so excited to buy this dress but mine doesn't have pockets! It would be perfect....the picture shows pockets but the dress doesn't have them? Sheer but should be fine with a slip..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gorgeous dress, but see-through Gorgeous little white dress, to have in rotation for summer and love that it's a unique, different and flattering cut but 100% see-through. Definitely need a slip unless you're wearing as a beach cover-up. I wore it with a red, low-block heel to work and got so many compliments.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Adorbs, but too sheer I tried this on in the store and fell in love. So cute and trendy for summer. It felt pretty see through, but hard to tell with the fitting room lighting. Tried it at home and was so disappointed to discover it is completely see through - like why even bother to be dressed see through. I tried it with a slip, but the way the dress is cut it has to be a pretty short slip. And wearing a slip took away the relaxed easiness of the dress. I heartbreakingly had to return. Oh and the online picture does show a pocket, but there aren't any, I checked numerous times thinking I was just missing a sewn up pocket lol.
