Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I was disappointed with this dress. Looked cheap to me. The colors looked faded, the fabric thin and clingy, emphasizing my bumps. Returned it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A good buy. I love this dress. It is right for so many occasions and I just put it on and forget about it! The length is right, I am 5ft 7ins and it is comfortable and elegant.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So pretty Love this for hot weather, beautiful light breathable cotton modal, and doesn't crease either. Only problem was the length, with the dipped hem, which trailed along the ground; needed a petite option, as it was tricky to take up. But, now I have, and it is lovely: compliments from my husband too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really comfortable and pretty This is a really nice summer dress. The fabric is light and cool. Wearing it is like being able to wear your nightgown to work! The cut at the hem is very pretty; it swings gracefully as you walk. The background of the fabric is dusty black, not true dark black. I've been wearing it with a long (also dusty black) linen sweater over it for the office. I'm a little heavier than I should be, and the sweater masks any bulges. I plan to take the dress to Europe with me this summer. It looks to be a good traveler.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great travel dress I bought this dress as a travel item. It is thin, packs easily, taking little room in your luggage. It is very comfortable and it elongates your figure. I disagree with the earlier reviewer about length; I am 5'8" and it skims my ankles. The print would work in spring, summer, and fall. You could wear this with or without a cardigan or jacket. It is a versatile dress. I would give this five stars for comfort, but because I sized up due to the thin material to hide my midsection, I'm giving it four stars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely print/colors Nowhere does it say what the background color is and despite the thin navy blue satin "hanging" ribbons inside it, my best guess (after taking it outside against a black pair of pants) is that the background is a matte black. Your eyes want to make it DARK navy and you probably wouldn't go wrong with very dark navy shoes, etc. That said, the print and other colors are warm and lovely. I don't find it "see-through" as one of the other reviewers did. I find myself wondering if the length might have some significant variation since someone 5'4" (or so) deemed it just right and someone 5'10" thought it was mid-calf! I am 5' 8 1/2" and 140# and bought a Medium. The back hem skims the top of my ankle straps, much like it does on the model. I, myself, wouldn't want it any longer. (That "high-low" hem, by the way, is about 4" higher in the front and is flattering, easier to walk in than an all-around ankle length dress, and, because of the inset in the back, seems to shape itself into an attractive trumpet-like flare.) I have both the Roma and Mira T-shirt dresses. This one fits about the same on top, but skims the top of my hips a bit more snugly, making me wish it "broke" and widened out for the hips just a tiny bit higher up on the dress, but some of that may be a function of the downward stretch of the very drapey fabric. I generally tend to avoid fabrics with modal (rayon) because, although they drape wonderfully, they don't tend to hold up to laundering/dry cleaning as well as cotton, but the overall beauty of the dress makes me willing to break my own rule on this one and just treat it very carefully.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sadly disappointing This dress was a great disappointment. The colours of the pretty floral pattern are dull, and the fabric is flimsy and of poor quality. A very thin, stretchy jersey cotton that clings lovingly to every curve and more - to be avoided if you have even a suspicion of a bulge anywhere! I liked the slight flare of the skirt, but not the longer hemline at the back. I don't think it's worth the money. Back it goes, alas.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too short! I was looking for a maxi dress, as it appears to be on the model. I am 5'10", and I always assume that models are tall, as well. This dress is MUCH shorter on me, mid-shin, than it is on her. The fabric and the print are lovely, so if you are short or average height, go for it. I am returning it. By the way, it would pack small for travel.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from almost perfect this dress is almost perfect, love the pattern/fabric, unfortunately it is see-thru in certain lights, and i can't imagine wearing this too work without some sort of long slip which doesn't appeal to me

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent purchase I love the styling - fits my body perfectly. The material is lightweight. I also love the short almost capped sleeves. I'm a "winter" in term of colors. I look best with navy, white and reds (without yellow). I would have preferred it with not so much beiges and browns as part of the pattern. I have been looking for something like this for a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from lovely dress I love the dresses from Peruvian connection. The reality is however 5.6 is not average height !! Those of us who are really average height 5 4 have to get the the hem shortened . I have not ordered dresses because of this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cheerful and Practical This will be a very useful dress. It's extremely lightweight, and as the earlier reviewer said, the material is soft. The back of the dress has extra seams , perhaps to get the extra length or flair. Fortunately they don't show much. I am happy to have summer dresses that have short sleeves, and the length of these is just right for me. (5'3)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Winning Style Last summer, and last winter, I purchased versions of this dress, and they are among my most worn items. The medium fits me perfectly (38C, broad shoulders, long torso), providing shape to the silhouette without divulging imperfections. The fabric on this version has a softer hand than the previous two versions. I like wearing these dresses with cropped cardigans. I had purchased the Nikki Lace cotton cardigan in aquamarine to go with another dress, thinking it would coordinate with the green leaves in this dress. But it turns out that the leaves are more of a gray color. I'll stick with a black cardigan instead.
