Rated 5 out of 5 by DollarsAndSenseOfStyle Not Just a Dress, It’s Wearable Art!
MY MEASUREMENTS: 38-30-40; 5'3; 34DD. PURCHASED: Noir Black, Petite 10. THE FABRIC: This is not your run of the mill maxi; it’s way out of the ordinary; the top is a stunning piece of Art Deco tapestry while the bottom speaks formal! THE FIT: Full disclosure ladies, this is a tight fit on top; however, in my opinion, it’s the tight fit that helps the print look so beautiful on your body. THE RESULT: This dress is a total splurge, both in price and in style; however, it’s going to be the first thing I grab from my closet for a summer brunch with the girls; and while it is a somewhat formal dress I’m going to dress it down with a flat minimalist sandal (specifically Sole Society T-Strap, A340445, in Black) and use my close fitting white denim jacket as an indoor "the AC is blasting" cover-up.

What an extremely flattering gown. I've received so many complements. The knit top minimizes the bust, the flowing chiffon bottom minimizes tummy issues. At 5' 1" and 170, it is everything I could ask for. The sleeveless back is cut in so you need a racing bra. Any zipper issue that was addressed by other reviewers was not a problem, the dress easily pops over your head. Truly, one of my favorite gowns EVER. I have just ordered my second one so that I can hem it to cocktail length and still have my long gown for black tie affairs.
I would love this style with a different patterned knit top, and/or option of different colors.
My point is that the style is a winner. Other color options, and as I suggested with my second purchase, an alternate cocktail length would be AMAZING.

I love feminine flowy dresses with empire waists and this is close to perfection. I am 65, plus size just under 5'4". The skirt is lovely with beautiful movement and falls to ankle length. If you are more than an A or B cup, the knit top is snug but has some give so it can work I will wear a shrug with it so that helps with coverage with the shape of the top.
This is my first G.I.L.I purchase. I would love more dresses of this type and optional shrugs that match. This will be great on my next cruise.

This dress is ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS. It is unusual and beautiful and versatile. I will wear it in the winter (with a little jacket) and in the summer (with "whatever"). The black GILI obi belt looks great with it. I am 5'4' in bare feet and it grazes the floor, so this dress is not for anyone much shorter unless you can wear very high heels. I ordered my brick & mortar store size and the fit is perfect. You will need a halter bra, but this is not an extreme halter style. PS Take a chance! I am not tiny and I am not young, but I feel comfortable and chic in this dress.
Rated 3 out of 5 by amb48 Not Perfect
Pros: The dress was the perfect length for a Petite woman I am 5'1.
The Bottom half of the dress was absolutely beautiful.
Cons: Top sweater knit half was too tight in the chest area, not for full busted women.
Sweater had pulls in the fabric, started to unraveled, not worth getting it fixed, I hated so send the dress back.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Vasilia Love GILI but Not This!
I have absolutely been in love with this Gili line especially since Lisa moved out and Gili Jill moved in. This dress did not make the cut for me. The top is super fitted and the neck is too tight. Also the bottom was just too voluminous especially for someone petite. First gili item that I can actually say that I didn't love!

I am 5'2", 74 yrs. old and I ordered size 8P. Fits like a dream, as if it were custom-made for me. It not only is elegant and classy, but very comfortable. All you want to do in this dress is twirl around like Loretta Young............does anyone remember that? The epitome of sophistication, just like this dress!
