Nyota Sheath Dress

Item #191582
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb fit, comfortable and elegant This is a lovely dress. The material fits and drapes beautifully following the lines of the body without being too clingy. As noted by others it is a really substantial weight of Pima so with a jacket or cardigan can be worn 3 seasons of the year. I have narrow shoulders but the neckline and arm holes fit really neatly. I bought my normal size M in PC dresses. I am 5ft 6 and on me the dress ends a few inches above the ankles. As a pear shape shift dresses are not always flattering but I took a chance on this dress and I am so glad I did - it looks great. It is a really elegant but practical dress as it will travel well and can be easily dressed up or down for day or evening wear. In my opinion it is excellent value for money and will give me years of pleasure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it, but runs generous Haven't washed it yet, hoping it shrinks a bit (seems generous in chest; I have some extra room in the sides right under the armpits), think it will since it's 95% cotton. Ordered my usual size M; I'm 5'8", 148 lbs. Beautiful substantial knit, definitely not sheer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like your favorite white t-shirt gone long It has not yet been warm enough to wear it. The fabric is beautiful, has great hand- and the white not at all see-through. I ordered a medium and it was a little big under the arms. I think a small would have been too small, so I just took it in a bit. I am 5'6' and weigh 130lbs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great design I agree that this dress runs a bit large. 5’7 160lbs. True Fit recommended a “large” but I went with my instinct & ordered a medium & the fit is perfect. The fabric is soft & very comfortable. The heavier weight does not allow for any “see through” & is still light weight enough for summer wear.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wanted to love it! I wanted to love this dress; however, the fit was really unflattering. I was able to grab an entire handful of material in the back. I tried it with a variety of belts. No luck. So, I have returned it. I am increasingly disappointed with the fit and sizing at Peruvian Connection, finding that it is inconsistent. With the additional of expense of shipping and cost of returns I’m not certain I’ll risk future purchases.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Anticipating lots of use The dress arrived far before weather warm enough to wear it! But the fabric, which has a nice weight - meaning no seeing through - is soft and inviting like a tee shirt but without any hint of sloppiness. I’m 5.9” and it hits mid-calf, which is good in summer for not showing too much of my bare legs, yet the overall fit has a cooling light touch on the body.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The fabric! A sheath is a sheath, but the cotton knit used for this one is exceptional. Nice and heavy...not a negative....and skims the body not cling to it. As it is whit which is usually see through, the heavier weight is a definite plus. I bought the jacket also. I’m reviewing it next
