Rated 1 out of 5 by Mainer Terrible-weighs a ton, thick fabric, wierd sleeves
I very rarely return items, especially from J.Crew, but this dress was terrible. It is soooo heavy and the material is thick, uncomfortable and hot (and I live in Maine!). Totally unflattering. I will usually keep a dress that I don't love for the back of my closet because you never know when you may want to wear it, but this has to go back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by meginma More like scuba fabric, too short
Pros: red color is gorgeous, sleeves are a perfect bracelet length.
Cons: where to start.... I'm 5'8", and this is about two inches too short for my comfort for work. The fabric is not ponte, but more like a scuba fabric that doesnt move very well - when walking in the dress, the midsection doesn't sit/drape well, it poofs out a bit - not very flattering. Sad to return it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jamie Runs large
I normally wear size small/4 at JCrew Factory but the XS fit much better in this dress. It is a heavy ponte like some other people mentioned but will be good for fall/winter. The sleeves are kind of an odd length - not quite full length, not quite 3/4. I liked how the dress fit once I sized down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shopper76 Great for Fall/Winter
I am really pleased with this purchase! I have already worn this dress three times and have received compliments on it every time! It can be dressed up or down, and I've worn it to everything from a casual outdoor wedding with gold wedges to a day at work with tights and booties. Other reviewers commented that the dress is too short for work, but with opaque tights it seems to be okay. The material is definitely heavier, so it's a great fall/winter dress (already cold weather where I live, so it's been perfect so far). I think it does run a bit large - I am a little over 5'7" and normally wear between an 8 and 10, and I purchased a medium. While the medium has some room to spare, the dress offers a nice shape and is not boxy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Shanda Perfect post-baby cocktail dress
Like others have said the fabric is very heavy but the weather is changing to fall so worked perfectly for me. I have a 7-month old and still trying to get back into my pre-baby clothes. I bought this dress for work and it is way to short but i had an event with my husband and pulled it out. I accessorized with a chunky necklace and some funky earrings, really high heels and it was perfect. It covered up all of my areas that need some work but really showed off my legs.
