          I bought this for my Mom who likes this maxi-dress style. Color and pattern are pretty, true to the photo. Did not know that it was a knit; the ad just said cotton. Looks fine new, but I'm guessing it's going to pill after a dozen washes. It has that feel.

                This is my first purchase of clothing from WW so I wasn't aware how much larger some item sizes are than typical retailers. I chose a larger size in anticipation of shoulder surgery that would require me to wear a bulky immobilizer for six weeks. Unfortunately, I assumed it would fit as usual and washed it. That dress was a size 3X. I now know to order size L!! Have several of these now and love them. Wear them every day. Glad to see more colors are available but not for 5-6 weeks:.
                The only reason for 4☆ is the slow, too expensive shipping. 10 days was fastest.

                      I purchased three of these dresses, two print and one solid. Workmanship is decent and fabric is nice and not flimsy. My only con is that after just two washings I can see some pilling beginning to show and the fabric is getting a bit of a "dusty" look to it. I wear these as house dresses and would not wear them in public after pilling starts to be visible.

                            I have 4 of these dresses and really like them a lot. They are comfortable, wash easily are wrinkle resistant. I do find the darker colors fade quickly, but I wear them anyway.

                              I was shocked when this dress arrived.

                              The fabric is different from that used in The same model dress over the last few years. It is thinner and not as nice.

                                        I did not think the fabric would be this heavy. I live in Florida. Size 2X is very large, I hope it shrinks when I wash it.

                                          When I placed the order I assumed the neckline & arm holes/sleeves would fit mostly like a T-shirt. Boy was I wrong! The arms are cut so big that I could fit 2 or more people's arms in there. If I raised my arm up you could see all the way through the dress and across my chest! The neckline is so wide that I ended up having to wear a T-shirt under it to keep from "showing off my assets"! I like the pockets & don't mind the button up front all the way down to my toes yet, I'd fix a few things (I'm gonna have to get them altered)!

                                            Dresses are comfortable and nice and long. Price to high for quality. The dresses bead up on the front after a few washes. Also color starts to fade some after several washings but the material is nice and thick. Would like to see some dresses along these lines with pockets on the outside. It's hard to find casual, modest longer dresses.

                                                      Absolute love this dress. I chose the black. The mateti is a medium to heavy knit great for fall and winter. Drape is lovely. I am disabled and when I am sitting in wheelchair it covers my legs. Very flattering
