Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nicely made One of my concerns when ordering can be about the weight and feel of the item and that is hard to perceive when shopping online. Well this was an all out winner. It is very soft, and has a good weight, not flimsy at all. I don't always want "light", it is another form of cheap, and this is not light, but it is not heavy it is just right!Will go nicely into fall. Also will able to slip a tissue tee under it too I think.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fitted but Flattering This dress is fitted, but flattering - It's much heavier in weight than the Turkish Pima Cotton Floral Dress and the Double Layer Black Cotton Dress that it is similar too (but not a bad thing) - a slip won't be needed - super soft tee-shirt like material - bra straps will be hidden due to strapping to secure them in place - the colors are beautiful together and combine to make a stunning dress that can be worn causally or out to dinner. I ordered a size small, which fits well (I'm 5'4", 124lbs., size 4) - go for it...it looks even better in person :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Getting More if I can find Any I just got this dress and tried it on! LOVE IT! That is, I love it with a brown, leather wrap belt (otherwise it is just a bit loose at the waist-hence the 4 star rating). I showed my 20 year old son who thought it looked terrific! "Really Terrific." I am 50 years old, 5'7", weigh 130 and have measurements 36-29-39. I ordered the size M. It was very flattering with the belt. I also purchased a similar dress with black/floral tapestry design in M and it fit more snugly all around. It was even more flattering and did not need a belt (the fabric was also lighter weight). I am buying more of these dresses today because they can be dressed up or down and are extremely comfortable. Paired with a short or long cardigan, short boots or retro heals and you can change the whole look easily. Very versatile and worth the money!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sizing Notes This is exactly the same pattern and fit as the Double-Layer Pima Cotton Dress, so if that works for you, this will. The only difference is the neckline--the Amaka Tank Dress is an inch lower in front and an inch higher in back. The XS dress has the following measurements: chest 32 inches, waist 28,hip 35. Going by the size chart, this is 1/2" negative ease in the chest, 3" ease in the waist, and zero ease in the hips. This gives a breast-squashing, waist-bagging, and hip-hugging fit (if your measurements match the size chart). I find the beautiful mudcloth print more flattering than the solid color of the pima version, but it's still a weird shape and fit. Maybe if you size up it would work--but that would make the waist baggier (a belt helps). Beware if you have narrow shoulders: the XS shoulder straps sit 12" apart.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from extremely form-fitting Way too form fitting for my tummy/liking. Wish I had the figure. Besides sending it back it was a beautiful dress and the material felt silky-smooth. The colors are a beautiful palette of rust and teal tones.
