Women's French Terry Maxi Dress
Fit My Curves Beautifully
I'm about a 10/12, large chest, smaller waist, bigger bottom, 153lbs, 5'8".
I ordered a medium and a large. I expected the large to be necessary but it hung like a tent, so I tried on the medium. It was a closer fit but that did the trick. It plays up my curves that way, going in at the waist. I am evenly distributed, not a "pear" shape, but an hour glass, with wide shoulders, with hips to match, smaller waist.
I LOVE THIS DRESS! I get compliments every time I wear it. If it came in other colors or patterns, I would buy each and every one. I wear it with silver sandals, and a white crocheted summer sweater, or without the sweater.
I considered it a steal at the sale price.

I've tried on maxi dresses for years and never found one that looked right on me...until now! I find maxi dresses are usually 100% rayon, but this has a substantial amount of cotton, giving it a nice drape and eliminating bra and underwear lines. Fabric is heavier than expected, but comfortable. I'm 5'7, 130 pounds and wear a 36C and the small fit well. Also, the breast pockets are tastefully located and seem like they could be functional (for cash or something small) not just decorative.

Unflattering cut/stripes exaggerates hips!
I buy and wear a lot of LEC. A lot. But this dress is one of the rare things I ended up sending back. I ordered my typical LEC sz. XS (36" bust, 27" waist, 35" hips. 5'9" tall, 123 lbs.) The dress fit just fine in the XS, but it was very unflattering. The waist is cut narrowly--I suppose to help give the dress some shape, but then it flares out around the hips. Because of the horizontal stripes and the cut, it accentuates the hips in a very unflattering way. My my 35" hips look about 2 sizes bigger than they are in this dress, and that's one of the narrowest points on my body!
I really wanted to like this dress, as it is a nice material, comfortable fit, seems to be constructed well, and very cute looking on it's own, but it's just an unflattering cut. So if you carry any weight in your bottom half and don't want to draw attention to it, I'd recommend avoiding this dress.

This dress would be comfortable and stylish if purchased in the correct size.

Great fitting dress!
I love it! It is so flattering and comfy too. The photo does not do it justice because the ad makes the pockets look unruly and the dress looks sloppy/too big. The pockets on my dress are perfectly flat. If washing messes with them I will stitch them down.
I am 5'8", 120 lbs, 34B. Perfect fit for me inspite of the reviews. I suspect the model is too thin for the size she is wearing.

Great overall fit.
Fits well in the chest area but roomy enough in the hip area.
