Ruched Surplice Knit Dress is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this dress! I am about 5'9" and 155 lbs, and this dress was a great fit for me. I do wear a tank top underneath, but this was because I need a more conservative look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Demurely Sexy I wore this for the first time this week. The drape is so body-flattering . . . the v-neck can be adjusted to deeper or higher decolletage . . . the length of the skirt is leg-flattering but just long enough not to ride too high when one sits down. And I love love LOVE the 3/4 length sleeves. I paired this dress with grey suede wedged sandals and turquoise jewelry. I can't wait to wear it again. (Also bought it in black and am SO glad I did!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits just Right I purchased a medium in the blue print. I usually wear a size 6, but I needed the medium for broad shoulders, and bust. I was glad to get the medium, however where it wraps in front, I needed a pin to close. Since, it's a vintage style print, I put an old circle pin there and it looks great. Waist, and length is perfect! I am happy with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE it, flattering Super flattering. I have now three dresses like this with different prints. 2/3 I love, including this because it has the liner which hides the imperfections. Not sure why the one didn't have it. Probably should have returned that one but this is gorgeous and super flattering.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty dress This is a nice dress and I'm keeping it but it does seem to have way too much material on the top. I'm going to put in a couple of stitches at the V so it's not quite so low, so the extra material will let me do that without it being noticeable. But I can't understand why there's so much material just hanging. The rest of it fits like other GH dresses.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Wanted it to work This dress is cute on the models in the pictures, but odd on me. It’s not offered in petite sizes so it was still too long in XS. The front ruching hung down oddly even though the XS was more ideal as far as fit goes. I wanted it to work since it was on sale and so cute in the pictures, but I’m just too short to pull off that length of between midi and maxi on a 5’3 frame. Needed more in the bust to be able to fill out the odd drape also. Super bummed, but had to send back. If you’re petite and don’t mind swimming in too much material, then this is for you, otherwise save your time and money and bypass this as tempting as it is.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Way too much fabric in chest. I was so excited to buy these (2) for work. It was my only shelter in place buy. I was so sad when I tried them on. I really wanted to make it work but Im returning all 3 dresses. Bought grey sleeveless with same problem. I have an extra small body which comes with a small chest and there was just way too much fabric. I’ve bought a different dress from here in the past with a wrap top and it fit great and was flattering.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Strange drape Gave the dress to my daughter. Doesn’t work on a flat chested woman like me. Slightly better on her but too still feels overly blousy

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Flattering On My Frame I bought the size 14 in the black floral pattern. I am a 36DD and the dress was too form-fitting for my taste. I also have scoliosis, so sometimes dresses that cling to the back can be unflattering. For women who are comfortable with their body shape, this dress would be very comfortable (nice fabric), sleek, and sexy yet professional.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Strange fit Fits great around hips but the front droops. I bought a medium, as I’m generally a size 8-10, medium around the bust. 5’8”; 150 lbs. would love it if they fixed the droopy fit at the front.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lovely dress but not on me... I wanted to love this dress on me but didn't. Not sure entirely what the issue was, just seemed like too much extra material and so it overwhelmed me. I think someone tall and thin could pull it off. Well made and very nice though!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Beware your body type I loved this dress...until I tried it on. If you’re at all top heavy it will make you look like Aunt Bea.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not flattering The fabric is comfortable but the cut isn't flattering at all. I have several GH dresses that are great dresses for the office, but this one may be best for the thin and tall.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pretty dress but did not fit me This is so pretty, love the black print and feel of the fabric. It fit perfectly in the back, arms, etc. But the front did not work for me at all. The folds of the fabric on the top create bulk and add weight. When I tried to adjust the poufiness by pulling the elastic waist down slightly, it threw off the ruching and again, there was extra material that added weight. I didn't realize how tricky it would be to get this dress to fit properly in the front, waist and the ruched area just below the waist. Perhaps it would work for a tall person or someone with a long torso. It did not work for my 5'4" fairly straight body.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not flattering at all... I was hoping that the ruching of this dress would hide my less-than-slim middle section, but alas, it actually highlighted it and made me look pregnant. Yikes. I liked the fabric, built-in slip and pattern, but it is not at all flattering for someone who is pear shaped/curvy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Forewarned is forearmed Wish I had heeded the numerous reviews describing a fit so idiosyncratic as to render the dress virtually unwearable! The positive features: the fabric is a lovely dove gray with a soft hand. The subtle print makes it a step above the

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ruched Knit Dress not greaat I so wanted to like this dress even after reading a few cautionary reviews. Who wouldn't want a dress like this that could go from casual to dressed up? The fabric is a dream, but the fit is a disaster. The drape is beyond strange. There is so much extra fabric due to the ruching at the shoulder and around the waistline, that it is impossible to arrange it in any flattering way. Despite the accurate sizing, I will be returning this item. It is unwearable. If the dress fit, I would give 5 stars for quality and value, but I can't. I am 5'8" and 140lb.

Does the waist on this dress sit high?

It says "light elastic at waist seam". The seam appears to be above her waist. This looks like an empire style. Am I right? If I am, please let me know if I'm looking at the empire style. This makes me look pregnant, and it's hard to tell with prints.
