Rated 5 out of 5 by foggy Quality, Class and Comfort
Finally, a dress that is conservative, stretchy where you need it, comfortable, and hides the knees, with a stretchy lining that really helps smooth imperfections. Normally, BM designs are too much for me, too bold or too granny, but this dress kept attracting me, as its somewhere in between. Once the price went down I went for the black and then the raspberry. The wide cascading colorful flower print is distracting enough to camouflage my pear shape. I tried two sizes and found the larger size was better even though it fits closer through the hips/rear and looser at the chest, underarms and sleeves. Overall, its an attractive, quality garment and I feel good wearing it.

Got the blue. It is very form fitting/ almost tight. I expected it to be loose & a column shape. It is lined which is nice but it has a tendency to bunch up. If possible I suggest you order 1 size up.
Rated 3 out of 5 by OutofControlShopper Not for apples like me
I loved the look of this dress and read the reviews and still ordered incorrectly. I should wear 1X and that's what I ordered, but it's way too small and looks horrible on my apple body. I don't think any apple would look good in this, no matter how slim. I got the pink. I think there was one other review that said this, but so many others didn't that I took a chance, cause I love BM clothing. It's usually very high quality. I may keep this around just to punish myself for poor decision making (I know that's wrong, but I do it to myself all the time).

As a 'senior' still in the workforce, still on a tight budget, and still having to compete (shall we say) with people half my age, "what to wear" gets to be a BIG challenge. I want to appear as fresh and attractive as possible, but not at the expense of looking too youthfully inappropriate (clothes showing too much arm, leg, cleavage, etc).
This Mackie dress is simply wonderful: the pink pattern is so cheerful but tasteful; the diagonal lines are slimming; the fabric is silky and falls gently over the hip area (which one might not wish to emphasize).
I was so happy, and found this one so versatile, that I ordered a second dress in black! Love also the 4 Flexpays (thanks QVC!!).

The colors are much less vibrant than on the website or on television. The fit is much smaller than the other Bob Mackie dress I have and love (A273529). This one goes back.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 5Somewhere My New Favorite Dress
Love this dress! I have a "pear" shape and typically buy tops in size 6 and pants in size 8. I ordered this dress in medium. It fit beautifully around my hips but I had to have it altered to improve the fit through the bust and under my arms. Very much worth it! I bought the dress in raspberry for a Memorial Weekend afternoon garden wedding in Washington DC. We traveled quite a distance to get there and it packed like a dream. The day of the wedding the temperature soared yet the dress material was the perfect weight and not at all too hot. Throughout the ceremony and outdoor dinner it kept its shape and remained wrinkle-free. I received a number of compliments....even from the bride! After the event I tossed the dress rather unceremoniously in with the rest of our dirty clothes. Once home it machine washed perfectly. Can't wait for another chance to wear it!
Rated 5 out of 5 by murieldiaz My favorite Bob Mackie Dress!
I have purchased many Bob Mackie dresses, but this one is my favorite. I'm seriously considering purchasing it in the other two colors. It fits true to size. I recomend it 100%!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Terri from Alabama I ordered two different colors
Love them both. I ordered the blue and black. I asked my hubby to pick since I couldn't and he told me to keep both and I said " Yes Dear " !!!! Do not hesitate. They fit true to size.
