Striped Keyhole-Back Dress

Striped Keyhole-Back Dress is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 11.
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 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 2 out of 5 by from cute dress, comfortable, but waist was way too baggy and unflattering I loved the stripes and the comfortable fabric of this dress. In my usual size, this fit well in the chest and arms, the length was fine, but it was just way too big and bulky at the waist. Sizing down made the top of the dress a bit too small, but the waist was still huge. I like shift dresses and own several, but this one was just too big and bulky in the midsection to be flattering. It looked sloppy. It does not fit like the photo, this is definitely pinned on the model to give her some waist definition and a more flattering shape than the garment actually has.

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 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing I love the way this looks on the model, but it's DEFINITELY clipped in the back. When I tried this in the store in my regular medium, it was a tad snug (but workable) in the chest and shoulders, but absolutely huge in the waist. It wasn't even just too straight, but billowing. The fabric was a nice mid-weight, and the length was good, but I had no trouble passing on this tremendously unflattering dress. I really wanted a dress like this for spring... such a disappointment!

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 2 out of 5 by from So Big I'm a small girl, 5'2" and ordered the XXS. It is so big it's not even real... Plus, the material is much thicker than it looked in the picture.. Would not recommend for petites.

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.
