Rated 1 out of 5 by nighunto Misleading description; misleading sizing
What a waste of nice material and a modern design concept.
JCrew - where is you quality control where it comes to actual style interpretation, sizing and accurate website description?
Gave this item one star because:
1. This dress is not a maxi. I am a lanky 5'5" and the dress falls short, more than 3" above my ankles. Maxi (imo) should graze arches of my feet. It's not a midi either. It's neither fish or fowl. How very misleading.
2. It runs huge. There is a point where vanity sizing turns insulting. I don't need JCrew's stylish little fashionistas' uppity & ridiculous sizing practices. I like myself just fine.
JCrew, as a clothing retailer, please make sure that when I buy an item online that 1. it is what you say it is, ie. indeed a maxi rather than a hybrid, and 2. that the size is what you say it is, ie. an XS rather than an actual M. I hate to play your hit-and-miss guessing games. My time is valuable.

This maxi is super soft and a great length for petites. I am 5' 2" and XXS hit me an inch or so above my ankles. Be aware that the fabric is thin, and might be a little translucent in bright light, but not too bad. I've worn it twice and nothing has stretched out or unraveled, so quality seems good. The sizing seems typical for J Crew Factory, where I usually have to buy 0 p or 00 p in tops, and XXS just grazes the body without being tight.

Rated 1 out of 5 by stlcolleen Love the look - not the length
This dress was going to be a perfect summertime staple. I ordered an XS knowing vanity sizing is typically an issue - I'm 5'4" and a 4-6 dress size. The top fit great, the colors were perfect, a lovely denim-y hue of blue and the stripes were flattering, as was the cut of the top. Problem was the length - SO short! I exchanged for a small - the top was way too baggy and it was STILL too short. Just something off - would be a great maxi for those closer to 5". Bummer!

I'm 5'4" and an athletic 125lbs. Factory always runs big, so I purchased the XS. If anything, it's still too big. I'll be keeping the dress because it's SO comfortable and easy to wear, but wish it hugged the curves a bit better!

I just love how perfect this piece is for weekend errands or meeting up with friends! It moves well and the fabric is soft and very flattering. It can be dressed down with flip flops or dressed up with wedges and some jewelry. I picked up with other color at the store this past weekend!
