It's orange tho

So this dress.. it's the color of a very ripe mango. Orange. The fit is flattering but the straps are too long and annoyingly fall off your shoulders all the time. The belt I couldn't really get to lay properly. Meh.

Orange, not yellow -- and size down

I expected a mustard yellow based on the photo, but in real life it's a bright, tangerine orange. I sized up which was a big mistake; straps wont stay up, and top is too baggy and low. I may rent again sizing down.

Straps are too long

The fit is very large, and the straps were too long and would not stay on my shoulders. I did not wear.

Beautiful color and nice fabric

I loved this dress for its color and easy linen fabric. The buttons are a nice detail that make it really flattering on. The only thing that brought down the rating is the straps. They kept falling down. Could be a good dress with a cardigan and pin the straps a bit. Still super cute and wore it for everyday.

Weird fit

The top is HUGE - I'm solidly a 14 and this in 14R was sooo big in the top. Straps need 2" taken up, back needs 1" taken in (it sags) and sides chest are also way too roomy. It's really too bad too because this is an awesome style, I tried to make it work w safety pins and even strongly considered doing a basting stitch to temporarily take it in! No luck tho.

Stunning Color, Great Fit

Love the linen, the buttons are incredible and eye catching. The added belt give the dress amazing shape. The straps did fall down a bit but not excessively

A summery ray sunshine

If summer were a dress, this would be IT! Clad in linen, I felt ready to face my day, which was FULL of compliments from coworkers and strangers a like. Grab this dress and a glass of rose and toast to summer!

Way too big!

This dress was about 4 sizes too big. I couldn't even wear it.

Great pop of color, fit is so so

The color was much brighter than I expected, almost neon, but it worked well with a summer tan. I usually find Nicolas to run small so I sized up, but this dress I probably could have gone true to size. As other reviewers said the straps are long, but it's more like they are to far apart so they don't sit at the right angle on your shoulders and fall off. I ended up pinning them inside shoulder which didn't look great but felt more secure

LOVE the colour, fit and style

Gorgeous dress. Despite it being linen, you can tell this was quality linen. The dress is lined and very comfortable to wear. Having spent all day in the dress and hours in a car it barely looked worn. Lots of compliments, event from strangers. Loved the dress.

Perfect summer dress!

I wore this to the church for my friends summer wedding. It was light, perfect for a humid and hot summer day in the city. The color is fun and the belt was so cute!

Beautiful dress with great details

As many have said, the sleeves are rather large and slide off of the shoulder. Other than that the fit is good. A lot of fabric on the bottom half.

Horrible dress

It looks so frumpy and the shoulders don't stay up.

It’s like the top of half the dress and the bottom half are not coordinated.

Gorgeous color, and substantial linen,but the top was huge and unwearable, even with a cami underneath. Very disappointed.

Pretty color and well made

I liked the dress a lot but I was swimming in the size 4. Not sure what happened bc I've squeezed into a Nicholas 2 before and could barely breathe.

Straps were long!

I loved the fit of everything about this dress except the straps. They were too big. I tried to pin and wear with a bra. Nothing worked. I'm very small chested so I didn't fill it out.

long straps

Fit okay on my pear body. Straps were on the long side and the dress has a pretty straight cut to it. It was a little to baggy up top in general. did not end up wearing.

Runs big up top!

I normally wear size 14 but have a thick mid-section so I sized up 2x. Dress fit way too big on top while bottom fit great. Definitely made for someone with broader shoulders.
