Beautiful burgundy

This is a very very light knit. Definitely easy to layer you could even wear it over jeans or leather pants. Lots of stretch and I like that the neck is not loose it's a true turtle neck. Wearing a coat or jacket over this piece however could get tricky because of the balloon sleeve.... cinching that in will make the skirt portion rise and it's already pretty short.

Sexy AF

Great color, figure-flattering and great for the winter as the fabric is rich and dense.

Cute dress

Wore to work and on the weekend. Sized up for pregnancy and it fit fine. Flattering color for a brunette in fall

Love the color on this fall dress

Great fall sweater dress in a vibrant color. Worked very well for petites - not too short and hugged in all the right places. Does cling a bit on the bottom so wear spanx. But great for fall in NYC.

Fab + Comfy = Love

Loved this. Enough stretch to be comfy and thick enough to be flattering. The fabric falls perfectly so that it hugs your hips without creating weird bulges and is looser in the chest. The color would be flattering on anyone I think. Plan to keep this one for a little longer than expected!!

Pretty color and drapes well on top

The bottom really highlights any love handles. I wore spanx which helped

Super Comfy AND Sexy

This is a great dress - I received so many compliments. It's a nice warm material and hugs your body in the right places. My only issue was it rode up as I walked so I found myself tugging on it all day. But overall I really loved the look.

Looks exactly as shown. It'll

Lovely color and looks exactly like the photo. However it was very form fitting and I had a hard time hiding panty lines and my pouch so I did not wear it. Maybe I'll try again in a few months or Size up for more wiggle room.

Gorgeous!

This dress is even prettier in person. The torso and bottom is form fitting but with ribbing and stretch so it's very flattering. The upper portion balloons and looks so chic. The plum color is rich and luxurious. Wish I could keep it! My favorite sweater dress yet!

Nice winter dress

Nice pop of color. Super comfy. I paired it with a wide belt to make it more interesting. The one con is that the skirt rides up a bit. Black tights can help with that.

Beautiful Color

Loved this sweater dress. The color was a rich plum and it was a nice change to the normal straight sweater dress look.

Incredibly comfortable

Fabric was thicker than I expected, and it was warm and comfy. I wore this to work, but it would be a great weekend outfit as well.

Cheap looking in person

It's very tight in person. I'm 5'5 and about 110 lbs- and I thought this was VERY tight. It wasn't flattering at all. It rode up when I tried it on with tights. I sent it right back without wearing it.

Odd fit - short if you want to blouse it at the top. Also, it arrived with a large spot on the back.

Fitted at the bottom, a bit short. Thick fabric.

Really great...until you moved.

I really love these reviews so let me leave one for you. This super cute and comfy sweater dress is absolutely adorable. Until you wanted to sit...or walk...or breathe. Maybe its just me but this sucker shifted and twisted and rode up on my hips anytime I moved even a slight amount. I constantly tugged it down, fixed the turtle neck, straightened the hem. Sheesh! This would make a great dress for a photo shoot but not good for practical wear. You'll be constantly adjusting it. I couldn't wait to take it off and this is coming from someone who wears dresses and heels EVERY DAY!

the dolman sleeve thing was just weird.

the dolman sleeve thign was just weird. it was tighter/ribbed at the bottom, and I liked how it made my butt look but then it was overall too short (even w/ dark/thick tights) for the everyday occassion I had in mind for it.

Loved this and wore it with leggings, a duster, and boots.
