Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not exactly as pictured Several key things to mention about this dress. First I will mention the negative. What you cannot see from the picture is that this dress really lacks "flow", due to the weight and cut of the fabric. Unless you have a tiny waist, the cut somewhat resembles a paper bag. I am about a size 9. I ordered a 10, which fit perfectly on top but is a little oversized on the bottom portion. All this being said, I have decided to keep the dress. The reason is that this dress is a true, high quality 100% cotton, and it is fully lined, which was a pleasant surprise. The fabic is a tight weave, similar to a fine linen, and feels like an old fashioned soft white dish towel. I would not call this dress "sexy" even though it looks that way in the photo. But it's a very good everyday comfy dress, and my husband liked it.. :-)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wanted to love it! This dress looked so attractive on the model, but was really lacking on my person. Material was very thin/sheer which some had mentioned; I wouldn't have minded it if the dress had some sort of shape.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not as pictured First of all, the colors are not at all as pictured. The dress is bright pink not dusty rose. Secondly, after reading the reviews, I had no idea what size to order. I have a large bust so I ordered a size 14. The 14 fit across the bust but was huge and baggy everywhere else. I am going to send it back. It is definitely not worth the price, not even the sale price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty summer frock This is a very pretty summer floral print in cotton lawn with a cotton lining. I normally wear a size 8, so I ordered a size 8, and it fits perfectly. However, I would never have paid the full purchase price of over $300. Even on sale, at close to $200, I think the price was a bit steep. But I'm going to keep the dress because it is hard to find pretty floral designs, because the dress is well made, and because it fits me nicely.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from same as every other purchase from Peruvian I really love the material and the style of this dress; however, as with every other dress I have purchased from Peruvian Connection, it is bizarrely shaped. I usually wear a size 6, once in a while I buy a size 8 if I just want a looser fit. I bought a size 8 since it is a summer dress and I like loose and breezy in the summer. This dress; however is way too tight in the bust and big in the waste. And it's not like I'm curvy, I'm not really curvy at all. So to have the bust tight and the waste big is the opposite of how things normally fit. Every other dress I have purchased from Peruvian has some odd fitting issue. I keep them hanging in my closet for a year or so while I try to figure out if I can make them work somehow and then they end up in the goodwill pile - never worn. You would think I would have learned by now. I just keep hoping that the beautiful and very pricey dress that I see in the catalog will fit this time. Very disappointed again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful! I am so happy to get this dress. I simply could not resist the sale price. I anticipated it would be well made, and I was right! I am 5'4" , busty and short waisted-hard to fit at times, but this dress simply glided on and made me feel happy! Took a chance on the size 18(US). A bit larger size than what I usually wear, but the large bust can be a problem for me. The length is below my knee, just as I'd hoped. Perfect! Fresh spring floral print and tiny pleats made it special. I only wish the rose colored cardi pictured with it was still available! I am quite content with this dress. Can't wait to wear it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A breath of fresh spring air A beautiful, lovely dress. I intended to keep it but sent it back for a larger size as it was small across the bust. When the new one arrived, I finally came to grips with the fact it was meant for smaller sized and younger person. I regretfully returned it. For someone up to age 45 or so, and a size 12 or smaller, whose colouring will work with the pinks, I highly recommend it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I wish I could keep it! For reference: I'm 5'6" but short-waisted, weigh about 120, lucky to wear a B-cup while nursing, get mistaken for a 13-year-old otherwise. I have very dark brown, long hair, light-fair coloring, but not pale, a bit pinkish in undertones. I LOVE THIS DRESS. I really needed a size 2, but only managed to get it in a 4. If I weren't short-waisted, it might work for me anyway, although like another reviewer I found it rather roomy in the bust. The colors are a bit brighter than online, but gorgeous, not too much more, and very flattering for my coloring. If the colors weren't so perfect for me, it would be easier for me to return. I'm still considering taking it to a seamstress to see if it can be made perfect, but I'll probably return it, because it is RATHER pricy. The fabric feels wonderful on, especially swishing around bare legs. The cut and weight make it very twirl-able! I've been keeping an eye on ebay to see if a size 2 comes up, I haven't wanted to have a particular dress this much in years. It truly makes me feel beautiful. In short, I recommend it if they have your size, especially if you're more average-sized in the bust!
