Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dress for autumn evenings I am 5'9", 143 lbs, (38,5" - 31" - 39") and ordered size M. The length of the dress is right bellow my knee. I thought exchanging it for size S because M is a bit too wide in my back. Instead of exchanging it, I decided to alter it a bit as I feared size S may be too tight on the front which may show few inches in my belly and it may be too tight in bust area. Since I have very slim arms, I also plan to alter the sleeves a bit tighter. Overall, the dress looks elegant, different, it stands out in a discreet elegant way. In my opinion the dress is too elegant for the office because red color and lace sleeves gives a "dressy" touch. I have brown hair and eyes, olive / pale skin, so deep and vibrant colors suit me much batter than pale / pastel colors. The red color of this dress is deep thus perfect for me. Material is thicker and drapes nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delightful, femine dress I loved the look of this dress when first seen in the catalogue, when it was beyond my budget, and having finally ordered it in the sale was not disappointed. It is beautifully styled with the flattering high waistline and flared skirt, and the lacy design over the shoulders and practical full-length sleeves gives covering for cooler weather while keeping a light, elegant appearance. The warm pomegranate colour will be ideal going into autumn and winter and the length falling just below the knee looks good with knee or ankle boots or heels, while my normal size 12 is a perfect fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luxurious comfort As usual, Peruvian Connection comes through with a beautiful piece that is as comfortable as pyjamas. The crochet work at the top gives it a formal touch, and does require an undershirt to keep it warm, which I haven't found to be a problem since the fit is accommodating. The only tricky part to be aware of is that the main body of the dress below the crochet work has its stitches oriented horizontally, which means that the dress pulls downward and clings a bit to the figure. It's a thick enough weave to be forgiving of small details like cellulite, but there will be no hiding larger details like tummy bulge. Since I do have a "mom" middle, I've solved the problem by pairing the dress with a jacket. The blood-red color looks fabulous peeking out from under blacks, taupes and grays. What I absolutely love is that it keeps me as warm as long-johns and has enough flounce to make walking easy even without a slip. When a dress is pretty enough for a job interview but comfortable enough to run for a bus or fall asleep in, then I consider the money well spent. This dress delivers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A winner Beautiful detail but yet understated elegance. Color is like a cherry red, not an orange red. I ordered an XS (my normal size in PC knit dresses). This dress feels like it has a little more room, but yet it drapes beautiful. Although I did have to steam the bottom on the dress which was easy enough. The lace at the top of the dress is very pretty and provides a glorious accent on the sleeves. i am 5'9" and 125 pounds, and the sleeve length was perfect, which was a real plus for me. The dress hit right below my knee. The color is a nice change from black.
