Rose Cross-Back Mini Dress

Rose Cross-Back Mini Dress is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I guess I'm the exception and not the rule I absolutely love this dress. Perfect color. I'm 5'7" 115lbs and bought the 00. It's slightly short. I was thinking of going up in size but thought it might be too big on the top. A bit of tweaking could have been done to make it better--adding an inch. Overall I really like it. I do agree with another reviewer that this dress may be suited to a more petite frame.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute Dress for Summer I actually had to exchange it for a smaller size, I usually wear a size 8 but he sides of the dress were very loose and had to get a size 6. The sides were still a little bit loose but much better than the bigger size. The color is not as faded or pale as in the pictures, it is definitely much brighter in person but still very cute! Cannot wait to wear this on its own or with a white tee!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love <3 but may be better suited for petite individual I am 5'2" and I downsized in this dress 1-2 full sizes. The Length is perfect for me as I am petite. I bought a few sizes from online and agree the larger sizes achieve a more boxy look. Ultimately I bought a 0 ( when I am typically a 2-4). I wasn't able to achieve the designed look but I love the dress and the millennial pink!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Took a Chance I am 5'8'', 135 lbs (total apple body), 34 B cup and I have no butt! I went with the size 2 and it was fine for me. I can see where people say it is a bit tight on top so if you are skinny everywhere except your boobs get a size up. If you have teeny boobs get a size smaller and you will be okay. As for the quality, the dress is a bit thin but its not completely see through and would be great for a warm sunny day. It is kinda of a linen like and very breathable. The zipper on the side is a bit weird but I think that might just be because the bottom of the dress is a bit loose on me. The color is a bit darker but still really pretty and not disappointing. It is like bubblegum pink. Glad I took a chance on getting it. I am pretty happy with the product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great color I ordered this final sale dress online fairly confident it would fit. I went with my normal size (and the size I usually wear from Madewell) and was pleased that the dress looked as cute in person as it did online. My only disappointment was that the dress fits a little big across the back so much so that i'm trying to decide if it's worth it to have it taken in on the sides. I'm usually a size xs/0 across the board but I don't feel this style runs true to size. If it was possible I would have tried to exchange it for the next size down as it is really cute.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Will need to get tailored This dress is too tight in some areas and too big in others. The material is nice but the color is more bubblegum pink than a light pink.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Size disappointment I was really excited about the dress, the shape and fit seemed perfect in the picture. I bought a size 2, I'm 5'1", 110lbs and a 32 DD so I thought a 2 would be a safe bet. There's no lining anywhere inside the dress and the straps both around my chest/back and over my shoulders are terribly measured. Basically the top comes to my nipple line and the back strap is gaping. The bottom half is slightly boxy and runs a good length. I thought the color was pretty close to the picture. I wish I would have read earlier reviews before buying this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing The color is a bit more pink than depicted on the website, although this wasn't what I had a problem with. It's the fit! I'm 5'6, 125 lbs and a 32A and the 0 just did not fit. Consistent with the other reviews, the top was WAY too big while the bottom was fine. The straps were too long and I could easily bunch up about an inch or two of fabric on the side of the bust. I was debating exchanging for a smaller size but I think then that the bottom would be too tight and the top still wouldn't fit right. Very disappointing because otherwise it's a really cute dress.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Proportions were off The proportions were completely off with this dress, it fit in some places and was ill fitting in others on me. I am 5'6" 110lb 32B and I was swimming in the top of a 00. The bottom half fit ok, but the open back was also kind of baggy. If you have a larger chest it might work for you but the back button closure piece was literally hanging off of me. Very sad, such a pretty color.
