Girlish and summery

Love the dress fabric. Extremely comfortable. It is a LITTLE girlish with the ruffles at the bodice but very cute for a brunch. My only frustration is that I got a 14 because they said it ran a little small but this seems to be a true to size 14 which means I should have gotten a 12. My bra strap (badly) shows at the back cutout and I had to wear a jacket with it. I love it otherwise! Very cute and summery.

It looked like I was wearing my little sister's dress

The dress length was short (especially for a taller person), and the bust size was way too small for me (34ddd), so overall this dress was way off on the fit. Didn't wear it bc I looked like I was having a "bless your heart" moment.

Perfect, light summer dress!

Light dress that kept me cool in 80 degree weather. Loved the color and the fit! Bottom is lined. Wrinkled very easily when traveling in a suitcase.

Adorable!

Very cute but quite tight around the rib cage. I found that is ran slightly small. I would imagine anyone with a wide chest would have trouble fitting into their usual size. Overall received many compliments and I would love to keep this dress!

Fun for spring!

Loved this dress and the open-ish back. The ruffle front was fun and flirty. Wore it to work. Perfect for spring!

Didn't love the fit

I wanted to love this so much but I just didn't love the fit on me. It was a little too casual

Cute dress. Top runs a smidge small.

Cute dress wore for a 4th of July party. As other reviewers mention, the top runs a smidge small. But overall the fit of the dress seemed right.

Very cute! Draper James always runs small in the chest area so I size up. Very cute and feminine dress. Pretty color too!

So flattering

The fit of this dress was perfect. I felt it was really flattering for me. I wore it for a wedding in Nashville in August. So it kept me cool in the sweltering heat. I was comfortable the entire time I wore it.

Love this adorable little dress!!

This was such a fun and comfy piece- I will definitely rent again! For reference i am 5' with 32A chest. There was definitely room in chest for those who have larger chests and wouldn't be too short on taller women. I wore this to work but would absolutely wear for a fun weekend event - shower, brunch, etc. I was worried the open back would be work inappropriate but it was totally fine - a fun spin on the average shift dress I wear most days. It was so lightweight and easy to move in.

Perfect sprint/summer dress

This dress fits amazingly as I have a large bust and pear shape. It looks so good and I can even go bra-less and I'm a C cup. I feel young in it---sweet dress so if you're into more sophisticated styling, it may not be for you. Gingham and MaryAnn vs Ginger and Apple Pie---that was I think of with this dress.

Beautiful

So classic! All Draper James pieces run small in my opinion so I sized up to a 4. Still a little snug but I love the look regardless!

The sleeves make the dress, very flattering in the chest area. Lots of compliments.

I sized up with this dress. It fit like a glove a size up. Wore to a casual cocktail party and received lots of compliments. Because it's linen, it arrived extremely wrinkled and took awhile to iron out. Perfect for summer picnics or day parties, can move into a casual evening dress.

Great Dress. I wore it for a dance recital.

I usually wear a 4/6. This dress was on the smaller side. I wish it had been a little bigger in the rib area.

Cute & comfy dress for date night!

This dress fit true to size (I feel like rare for RTR). It wasn't too long on my 5'3" frame, which is always a worry. The elastic across the back was great because it hid my (regular) bra and had good stretch.

Great summer dress!

This dress was flattering and well made. The embroidered detailing on the top gave an appearance of a smaller waste. the elastic in the back is a huge help for anyone with a larger bust. Great dress for the office, church and a warm summer day.

I liked this dress and it fit great! I paired with a nude shoe and it went nicely for work. The top of the dress is cute with the frill detail.

Cute and comfy!

I am very pear shaped and usually can wear an 8 in an a-line but the 8 wouldn't zip. The ten fit perfectly.
