Rated 4 out of 5 by from Full Busted Do Not Apply I bought this dress in deep teal in 2018. It is a beautiful dress, BUT, if you have fuller breasts, in most cases, it will make you look frumpy. I have a good shape, balanced proportions and look good in most styles. I have a very wide range of designs from close fitting, Paris haute couture with unique asymmetrical pieces sewn in, big flowing linen formless volume pieces...you get the idea. This dress is beautiful if you have a similar figure to the model in the photo. In fact, if your but is on the smallish size, this dress will give the illusion of a fuller bust with the gatherings in front. Great dress but will look best on thin figure. I was so shocked at how it didn't work for me, I kept on putting it on, wearing a few times and finally abandoned. Even with all I've said, I am tempted to get this beautiful red. I need to find my teal dress and rethink again. Dress is nice quality and very soft I remember. A comment on drop down of body types. You cannot find agreement online of the meaning of "curvy" vs. "full figured", so I cannot choose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely dress for most every occasion This dress is so comfortable. I really love the very long belt that wraps around the dress several times and looks so good. My only problem was the length. I am now wearing longer dresses; however, the length of this dress is good with boots and tights. Bravo!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Versatile and great color! Flattering dress that can be dressed up or down and is seasonless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Knit Dress I bought this to wear to my husband's holiday party. Even though it's knit, it's so lovely that I knew it could be casual with boots or dressy with heels and jewelry. Some of the reviews said it was "matronly" but I took a chance and size Small fit me well (5'10", 140 lbs, 34C). The Jade color is stunning and true to the picture on the website. The ties are long enough for a nice bow in front or back. Even after washing (and steaming) the color is still bright and the fabric looks new.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flimsy fabric, not great shape It looked so good on the model but looked very sloppy and matronly on me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flattering Weather hasn't cooled enough where I live yet to wear it but I'm certainly looking forward to it. Loved the way it felt and draped my body.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing drape I was so sad to have to send this dress back. The color was absolutely beautiful! It is difficult to find teal. The color is as pictured, and the material feels good on. Although I am tall and thin, the bunching of material in the front created a matronly look. It did not drape nicely as it does on the model. Hopefully Peruvian will make more clothing in this color.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Soooo Disappointed I guess I should have paid more attention to the reviews, they were right, this dress doesn't fit right. The top bloused in the wrong places (I'm only a 36C) and the skirt is cut in a way that doesn't drape well. I bought it because I love the color. and the style looked great. It looked better in the catalog. (A corollary to: it looked better on the hanger.) Sent it back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very matronly looking This dress looked great on the model and the color is beautiful. But in person on me at age 72, 5’7”, 126 pounds it just looked frumpy. I was sorry to return it because I loved the color, although the fabric was flimsier than I thought it would be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Design! I really like the style of this dress. The material is soft and it drapes nicely. I bought the color teal and it's a luscious deep green/blue. The price was also good!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Simple black dress, light weight, can dress it up Purchased this several weeks ago. Tried it on and was disappointed, but it hung nicely and had sweep to the skirt. The tie just tended to bunch at the waist. BUT I had just purchased the OBI belt in black. WELLA what a dynamite difference this belt made. I let the original belt hang down and put some knots in it, so it would move. Almost to the hemline, which is below the knee, and a great length for a 5 ft 7 inch person. Not dowdy. A fancy necklace and heels and it is super cocktail dress. So I am not sending it back, and might even use it for New Years.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not impressed I felt the material was thin and flimsy. Also there's a seam that runs up the middle of the bodice that takes away from the look of the the gathered waist. I'm returning it. Was disappointed as it was my first purchase from them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Didn't Fit Quite Right The dress is a beautiful color and style, but I think it might look best on someone with a fuller figure or else it's overwhelming. It was a little too large in the bust, and although I kind of liked it on me, my husband, who is mostly complimentary, didn't think it fit well enough to keep.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice dress, but not for me The dress is very attractive in the photograph, but unfortunately it did not work for me. The blousy top was not at all flattering: Perhaps because I have a fairly large bust, it looked matronly. The fabric has a very nice hand, the skirt flows nicely and the color is lovely. I'm sad that I had to return the dress.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor fitting I couldn’t get over how little style in real life. It just hung like a rag. I am small busted and thought that was the matter but I gave it to my daughter, who is the opposite, and it was very unflattering on her too. Usually I love your clothes so was disappointed. I’m going to return it tomorrow

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enjoying My Purchase Love, love, love the dress! It is comfortable to wear and long enough to cover my knees! (I am 5ft8in.tall.) Wore it to a wedding and got many compliments!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, Comfortable Dress I am between a Small and Medium size, 125 pounds, 5' 7", and I bought this in Medium. It is an excellent fit. The color is bold and beautiful. I love the belt, and I tie it off-center front. I don't need extra bulk in the center. I am so happy to have this dress!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I loved everything about the dress except the neck size was just too big for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this dress! This dress is very versatile and flattering, but it runs really small, hence the two stars. I usually wear a small, but ordered a medium after viewing it on the model. Had to send the medium back for a large- which fits just right- so keep this in mind when ordering- but i love this dress- so many ways to wear it! I tried both colors, and kept the black for its versatility!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple is Best This is a lovely dress for a very reasonable price. Flattering fit and will pack well. Pleasantly surprised by how well a simply made dress can make you look and feel. Wanted to try Peruvian for a while now and so glad I did. I've already made several purchases and I'm quite happy with them all!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I am a huge fan of Peruvian Connection and have multiple outfits. I was excited about this dress when I saw it in the catalogue but disappointed when it arrived. The material is very thin. I have a trim physique (5'6" 135 lbs) but this dress made me look big. I ordered a small. The bust area was much too large (although I am small-chested). The thin material added to the tent-like effect. The fact that there is a built-in belt didn't help much. I could not wear something like this for work. I sadly returned it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Looks stunning in the photo but not on me This dress looks stunning, doesn't it? Unfortunately there is a blouson effect at the front waistline which shows as a bulge as if you have a spare tyre. I am 5ft 5in with a well balanced trunk to leg ratio but the waistline is cut too high in this dress for me. Perhaps would suit petite ladies. Some darts in the top bodice at the waistline would have helped but I'm no seamstress. I returned it.
