I'm glad I got to try this on in the store before purchasing - per other reviews, it runs a full size large. I felt pretty good about myself for having to go down to an 8 from my usual 10! I agree with another reviewer that the zipper does get stuck about halfway up, and truthfully I needed some help from the significant other to get it up all the way. I would also agree that it has a high waist (I am 5'8" and it hits right at the end of my rib cage), it is pretty low cut in both front and back, and the length is very short (about an inch below my fingertips if doing the "test'). I would say it comes just to mid thigh, so definitely not even an option not to wear tights. What's interesting is that this comes in Petite, but not in Tall. Even if I was 5 ft tall it would still hit just at the knee! It is a very pretty and feminine dress that will certainly show some of your assets, so if you are at all conservative it won't be the choice for you.

I saw this in the window and had to try it on. It runs a little bit large so I ordered a smaller size. This definitely works better if you're short waisted as the waist is a bit high. It is very comfortable and I love that it has pockets and makes you look like you have longer legs then you actually have.

This dress runs VERY large. I always order dresses based on the bust measurement since that's the largest part of me (36C). I would've gotten a 10 if it were TTS, but I ordered a 4 and it's still a tad roomy. It's wide in the waist area. The neck line is very deep and shows too much cleavage for my liking. I'm 5'7 and the hem hits me about 3in above the knee. Quality wise, the material is nice and sturdy and it has a nice lining, but when I first tried it on the zipper kept getting stuck towards the middle, and I struggled with it for a good 20 mins before it finally went all the way up. Overall, it's not the most flattering dress, as it makes you look bigger than you actually are. However, it does make your legs appear longer. Despite the drawbacks, it's way too cute to return!

Got this dress in person at a j crew factory store for a great sale price. I actually saw it in the window display and HAD to have it. The fabric is sturdy and I love the metallic gold stripe. It does run a full size large so keep that in mind. It is short in the torso, I'm 5'7" and it hit about 1 1/2" inches above my natural waist which looks a little odd. But I loved it so much I bought it anyway.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Danielle Cute dress--just a size warning
Just like other have commented before me, this dress runs quite large! I have a 34 inch bust, and a 27 inch natural waist and I usually run in size 2 in J Crew dresses. This dress, while adorable and VERY well made, is very generous in its measurements. I would recommend going two sizes down from your actual size (refer to J Crew sizing chart) due to this discrepancy.
