This dress is everything I’d hoped it would be. I’d been eyeing this for awhile and finally bought it in the hopes that I could have a few easy-to-throw-on-and-feel-put-together outfits for this summer since I’m having a baby in the spring and felt like such a mess postpartum with my first a few years ago. I’m pear shaped with 41” hips and the M fit me well with some room (YAY!) and that includes a halfway pregnant belly even. It’s winter right now so I add a sweater and boots, but I’ve only had it a week and I’ve worn it twice. I am so looking forward to throwing this on by itself in warmer weather! The black is not to sheer to wear alone but I do think if you wore bright white underwear you might be able to tell in direct sun. I saw another review mention that it was long- and that’s definitely true but works perfectly for me because I’m 5’9” (in case that’s helpful for anyone- I think if you’re under maybe 5’6” that this would be too long with the natural, raw hem). The raw hem is such a beautiful, simple detail that makes the whole thing feel very California casual. If I could change one thing I would make the side slits just a little longer as there isn’t any stretch to this fabric and I can’t quiiiiite walk with my full stride, but I love that it’s not a high side slit and that’s easily modified. I already ordered it in fennel too, so good.
I was in love with this dress, so soft and easy in the warm weather, but had to return. I'm 5'3" and it dragged on the floor because the back hem was slightly longer than the front. I'm hoping it appears again with two less inches at the hem.
Wearing it right now! Bought it for a summer vacation and have worn it in three European cities. Dressed down with sneakers to walk about, causal for a lunch in sandals and dresses it up for dinner one evening. Perfect dress.
i live in the desert so anything light and flowy is a winner in my book. i have another shorter dress from go gently that has pockets and pockets on this dress would be wonderful.
