Rated 2 out of 5Â by meredith Dress great, top horrible
The black dress fits true to size, and is long enough to be used for formal occasions. I will keep it because I have another top which goes well with it. The top; however, is another story. It looks very cheap because the unprinted side of the fabric on the sleeves is very noticeable when worn; the fabric black does not match the dress black, more faded looking; there is no way to prevent the dress straps or skin showing because the neckline is so wide; and the colors in the print are much more subdued and faded looking than the vibrant colors shown in the catalog. I might have worn the top anyway if it were not so huge. It does not look like it is meant to go with this dress. If you do not have wide shoulders you will need double stick fabric tape to keep it in place. The length is OK.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by GreatDayHawaii Good purchase!
I wasn't too sure when I ordered this if the fabric would overemphasize the areas I want to downplay. I was pleasantly surprised when it didn't. This dress just glides over all my imperfections & was very flattering. The fabric had just enough weight to drape nicely and is thick enough so you don't need to wear a slip (but I did anyway). The armholes were just right (not too large) and the straps were also wide enough to hide my bra straps if I choose to wear this without the top. The top was a good length and the pattern is figure-friendly as well. My only complaint (& the reason it didn't get 5 stars) was because the top is too large in the neckline. I didn't want to see the dress straps below so I had to pin the top in place to keep the top from moving and causing me to fuss with it.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by SandDollar Great Dress/Toss the Top
Honestly, I brought this for the dress only and I am very happy with it's purchase! The dress hangs well, I find it comfortable, is a good length for my height (5'10") and was just what I was looking for. I give the black dress 5 stars and the top zero. So If you are looking for a nice black 55" maxi dress this is a good buy.... just toss the top!
