Cute dress but on the short side
Very cute dress, good quality but a little on the short side. I wish there was a tall version!

See-through
The fit was good but the white colour is completely see-through even with nude underwear which was very disappointing.

So short
Im 5’6 118lbs I typically buy XS but bought a XXS instead (based on past years sizes where it fit bigger). It fits well in the waist and arms but it is so so so very short. There’s about an inch of fabric between my bum + the end of the dress. My sister bought this same dress 2years ago and it was way longer (we are the same height). Anyways, sadly returning.

Shorter than previous model
Ordered this in the shade Sunflower, what a gorgeous shade of yellow. I also purchased this dress in 2021 in a beautiful mauve/pink/pale blue patterned print in the same size and it remains to be one of my best clothing purchases to this day. Naturally, I decided to compare the two side by side because visually, the new one seemed shorter and I was right, about a good 2" shorter in length from what I measured, specifically in the fabric in the bottom-most portion of the dress. The bodice fortunately fits the same as the previous model and most of the overall proportions also appear to look the same - I can still wear it with a strapless bra no problem and it looks lovely. I also noticed that the frilly trim detailing on my original dress, both at the top of the bodice and along the ends of the sleeves, is missing on this newer model, which isn't necessarily a con, I just thought it added a little more elegance to the dress. I wouldn't recommend sizing up as it tends to change the proportions of the dress on the whole in an unflattering way, at least in my experience. I'm not sure why Aritzia made this dress shorter as I think the original length suited a greater variety of heights, but overall, it's a lovely piece and I look forward to wearing it once the summer rolls in.

Beautiful color, didn't love the fit
Received as a gift, I'm 5'4" 110lb and got the XS - I consider myself relatively petite, but the dress was very short, and the smocking ended under my bra line instead of at my waistline, making this look more like a babydoll dress - everything except the arms felt too short/off on me. However, color was beautiful in Aventura Green.

Really nice
Gorgeous dress, I tried it in blue. The only thing is I would prefer to wear a bra with this one and unfortunately it was visible when I tried it with a bra. I got a medium and it didn’t seem to have enough bust support to hold them in nicely (34DD). If I would have sized down I think it would have been way too short for my liking. I’m 5’6” and this dress went only a few inches below my bum in the medium size. For the price, I had to return.

The perfect flowy dress
Love this dress! Have another one already. Somehow this one I got in black recently is a bit shorter than my pink one…

Everyone should own this
This is the most versatile and flattering dress. You can make it casual or dress it up and it works for many occasions depending on how you style it. Very comfortable as a tall woman I’m happy to say it isn’t too short on me. 10/10.
