Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely Cool-Weather Basic The Berenson dress is as described and the length is as pictured if you're tall. I am 5'8" tall and it is quite long on me as a midi, similar to the length shown in the online photo. The dress is comfortably warm and the style is basic, yet elegant due to the fuller sweep of the skirt and the slightly scooped neckline. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that it is definitely see-through, which is disappointing considering the price. You will need a slip underneath if you want this dress to look classy and hang nicely. I have a longer, black full slip which solves this problem nicely, but if could create a wardrobe challenge if you need to find one before wearing the dress. I don't believe a half-slip will work because the waist elastic would be visible under such a lightweight knit. Other than this challenge and the nagging feeling that it is somewhat over-priced, I love the Berenson dress and do recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for me. I am tall and a large size. It fits nice, flows well and is flattering on a tall frame. Very comfortable. Would love to see it in a midnight blue or something similar. Easy to wear. Casual events and for work.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing The fabric is soft and the top half lovely, the bottom half made me look like Mt. Rushmore and I have a nice figure. The pockets while wonderful to be able to tuck your hands into (and that might be the only way this dress is becoming) hit between hips and waist and definitely did add unflattering width. I was very disappointed in the look and didn't have to think twice about returning it. It was especially disappointing as I had waited for it since it was unavailable when I placed my order. It just was not flattering at all. A dress to put on but not much more. Too expensive to look that dowdy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Classic dress Nice line. Love the pockets. Hope fabric holds up, it feels nice- light but substantial. Glad I ordered a medium rather than small as bust line would have been too small. I had to have it shortened as I am a petite 5’

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Would I Recommend? I guess I would recommend this dress to someone who needs a beautiful black dress that is loose-fitting and adaptable to many functions. I did not keep this dress for the following reasons--the material , though soft and tightly knit--has small flecks of white that can mostly be removed with brushing. This is NOT a big concern, but for me, it was a drawback. The other reasons I didn't keep the dress are that it is very loose on me. Maybe that is the elegant look and it would suit many other women. The last reason is that the neck was low, and not especially flattering TO ME. I have come to prefer PC dresses with higher necks. I sort of wished that the keyhole opening had been in front. Well, despite all I've said, I believe the dress will be very successful for other women. The flared skirt and set-in sleeves are what I like best about the dress. I wish it had worked because this is JUST the sort of dress I have been waiting for. (XS/5'3"/108)
