Cute, tight through hips
Really nice dress! I sized down because I am between a S/M and am in the process of losing weight. This dress fit my upper body well, but its a bit tight around my hips, so if you're smaller on top like me consider that! I'm 5'7", 145 lbs, measurements 36-28-39.5.

It shrinks!
I was just about to order two more of these dresses, because I loved them so much, but as one other recent reviewer noted, they shrink like crazy! I had bought the size small, which fit perfectly, just the right amount of slouch and extra room for me. After one hand wash in cold water and hanging it to dry....it is at least one size smaller. It is now tight around my hips and a good inch or two shorter. So incredibly disappointed.

Beautiful Summer Dress
Fit me beautifully! I have a short torso and longer legs, so shirt dresses can go a little frumpy on me. However with this fabric and construction, it makes me so long and lean! The fabric is thin and the dress isn’t lined - I got the navy and once on, it’s not see through, but something to keep in mind if you’re eyeing the lighter colors! Overall, I’m so happy with the purchase, it’s hot most of the year where I live so it’ll be a closet staple for sure (PS it does need to be dry cleaned, don’t throw it in the wash!)!

Love this dress. Got it in Dusty Mauve. I am 5'1 and petite and got this in xxs and it fit perfectly. Not extremely loose but not snug either.

PSA!! Sizes vary per colour!
I wanted to write a review to let anyone ordering know that apparently the sizing differs per colour due to the dye process that is used on this material. I had tried on the black dress in store in xs and it fit like a glove - when I ordered the same size in classic navy it looked like it was 1-2 sizes too big (when putting the dress on and pulling it across my chest to do it up, the buttons could reach all the way to my shoulder...I was swimming in it), I thought it had been mislabeled since the black xs in store fit so perfectly. I contacted Aritzia and they explained how the dye process can cause sizes to fit differently per colour...I think this should be stated in the item description, it would help online shoppers a lot.

Luckily the stylists that I chatted with were super helpful and we got it all sorted out. I gave it only two stars since aside from the strange sizing dilemma, I really love this dress - I just wish the classic navy xs fit the same way the black xs does!

Absolutely lovely
Such a great dress that can be worn dressed up or down, I love the fit and material as well, very breathable. I was concerned about the length but even though it is longer on me, it still drapes beautifully. Probably going to get a second colour!

It shrinks!!!
I was pretty happy about this dress at first when i try it on. It fits perfectly and looks elegant. I am 5ft3, 115 lbs, my usual size is xs, so i ordered xs. But everything changed after one wash even i hand wash it with cold water, it shrinks a lot!!! Sadly it is a one-time dress for me.Strongly recommend size up!

Completely see through
I want to love this dress, but in my opinion it's not worth the money. (1) This dress is COMPLETELY see through. You could almost watch TV through it (I did) and if you're out in the sun you can see right between your legs... ALL the way up. (2) The fit is off. The hips are narrower than the top, so if it fits your hips it will likely be too large on top. (3) It's VERY long. I'm 5'5" and it comes almost to my ankles. (4) It's also very low cut, which wasn't too much of an issue for me since I have a small chest, but others may need a tank top under it. I would have happily tailored it to fix the length and oversize fit on top, but I'm not OK with how transparent it is. Aritzia could have shelled out a few extra dollars to add another layer. Unfortunate because I do love the style and the fabric is really comfortable, but it should be thicker.
