"Just the Dress I was looking for - I needed a blue empire-waist dress and searched high and low for one online. This is the only one I found, and was even better than I had hoped for! The fabric is super-comfortable to wear all day and in all places. I wear a dressy jacket with it for nice- I recommend this product."

"Wash it first - Tried it out of the bag and thought it might be too big (medium, for a size 10) but a first washing softened the fabric and produced a fine fit. I really like it, easy to dress up or down, can wear In winter or summer. A lovely scarf makes all the differe- I recommend this product."

"Not as nice as I'd hoped - This dress has an empire waist, and the seam that runs along it is very noticeable and uncomfortable if you have a tummy. Also, you cannot tell from the photos, but there is a seam running down the back of the dress from the waistline to the bottom hem. TI would not recommend this product."

"Disappointed - I bought this on the basis of the positive reviews, but am disappointed. It is MUCH longer than the picture indicates. I am 5"6", so not short, and on me it's mid-calf, if not longer. The colour (blue) is not the cobalt of the photo, but more toward the pI would not recommend this product."

The style is okay, but I found the fabric just awful! It feels icky on my skinI would not recommend this product."

"Returned - Looked like a old maid's dress--just needed a white apron with a bow. The fabric is definitely not lighter-weight--had the weight and feel of the 1970's polyester. The empire waist was rather difficult to see. I purchased another basic black dress - off tI would not recommend this product."
