First reaction: Boy, is this cozy! It's so hard to tell when looking at solid color dresses online what they will be like. Dress has a little stretch -- just the right amount for a structured dress. Color is perfect! Not too dark, not too orange-y. Just a beautiful red, an eensy bit darker than photo. For some reason I thought this dress ran full and ordered size 4: bottom half is perfect, love the pleats in the back, and in the front, makes for a nice full skirt (which is so flattering on just about everybody) but not too poofy, still has a nice side view. Top is a little snug: waist and belt are on the high side -- right at bottom of rib cage, so I'll try a size 6. I'm 5'2", 117lbs and would say this dress is "true to size." Nice discrete back zipper, though it sticks in a few places. Cute little bow belt. I'm on the fence about price of $38.87-- I think something closer to $30 would be more reasonable: I like the fabric and how it has some body, but does seem a little chintsy -- I guess it's the polyester (the bottom half is not lined, so you can feel it against your skin). Dry cleaning is another minus. And it arrives in a plastic bag, folded over a piece of cardboard 11"x12" so there are some creases (which are not always easy to get out, especially with polyester).
