Shirred Maxi Dress

Shirred Maxi Dress is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely Dress! This voluminous maxi is not only beautiful, but quite comfortable. The dress fits true to size, so those looking for a slimmer silhouette might consider sizing down. I found that the plum color is not as sheer as the web photo insinuates.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from gorgeous dress, just size down I usually wear a size 6 in other brands, that would be size small....I had to get an extra small in this dress. It's really a beautiful dress for a summer night event.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dress--just order down! This dress fits unbelievably well. I tried on an XS in the store (note: I normally wear a S or XS) and it was rather wide and boxy up top, so I ordered down--XXS. It arrived promptly and fits beautifully. I actually like it better without the sash/belt. It's flowy and light but dressier than just a sundress or your typical cotton maxi. The neckline and armholes are comfortable and fit impeccably. The bottom of the dress is not nearly as sheer as it is pictured on the model. Also, while I think I got it for a bargain, I understand that the original price was much higher. I probably wouldn't have paid full price originally.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long, unique, and comfortable I'm 5'10" and around 130 lbs. I purchased the XS. This dress is best on taller girls. The dark plum color is very pretty and unique, not too sheer at all. I didn't see the white version of this dress in person. The outer layer of fabric is sheer, but it does have a totally opaque lining, as you can see on the model. I ordered a size down from my typical size, it does seem to run slightly big. For me, this will look best with flats/sandals - if you're shorter than about 5'7", heels would be great with this dress. I didn't feel like I was swimming in it, or that there was too much fabric when I tied the sash. Just order a size down form your normal size. I REALLY love the way this dress looks. It is also extremely comfortable. Can be dressed up or down. And it has pockets! Love.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from If only, if only... I wanted more than anything for this dress to work for me and it fit well but was not very flattering. I have a bigger chest and hips and ordered my usual size medium. I am 5'5" length was perfect but it just made me look all the more wide and the waist tie wasn't much help, either.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not sure why people are saying this is large. I'm really please with the value of this dress, especially on final sale. It's very simple, but I think it will dress up nicely with some accessories. I know many reviews mentioned this dress being large, but I think it's the style of the dress. Without the tie in the middle it does look big, but you really wouldn't wear the dress without the tie, so it's not an issue. My only comment is the bottom is not as sheer as it appears in the pictures. Otherwise, I'm a happy camper.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bulky dress Has too much material for me, but i think i can get it taken in. couldn't beat the final sale price so i'm not complaining too much. Beautiful color and comfortable for a summer day. Just should have ordered a small instead of a medium (i am an 8).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great! a little bulky I bought this dress online on sale so I would say it was totally worth it. If I had tried it on in the store and it was full price, I probably wouldn't have gotten it. Reason being: I didn't realize it had pockets (which is a bonus tbh) but it does make the waist a bit bulkier than I wanted - and we all know their sizes already run pretty large. I ordered an XS and I so worried it would be too tiny, but honestly it's pretty roomy. I'm 5'7" about 135, a 5/6 in pants, usually wear a medium in tops because of my bust. But the XS was pretty on point, a little roomy like I said - but that's also just the cut of the dress. super cute, can be dressed up or down. Overall I'm super happy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LOVE! I am 5'7'' and usually wear a medium. The dress runs big, and is really wide, I would need a small in the dress but then it would be too short for my height so I stuck with the medium.It is extremely comfortable and I received soo many compliments for the dress.
