Rated 5 out of 5 by eljs Classy dress
Although others talked about this material being too heavy, I don't find that to be true at all. It has a nice hand and just isn't flimsy. It is very figure flattering and true to size.

I recently lost some weight and decided to try the GILI line again. I loved the Olive so much that I went back for the Twilight Blue. Everything about this dress spells quality. From the design to the heavier weight of the fabric--perfect for fall--is first class. Very impressed! I wear a 2X and I was very skeptical when I ordered. But the way this looks on me and the way it washes up – – I simply wash it and hang it to dry--is superb. Unlike some things that I buy from QVC that look great when they come out of the package, these dresses look just as good washed as they did when I unwrapped them. I love the styling detail of the flared shoulders. It is very flattering. And while I am not a sleeveless dress person any longer, I highly recommend this style. One caution though. It is fitted at the waist but that can be very flattering as well. But probably my favorite thing about this dress is that it reminds me
of Lisa Robertson.

I buy a lot of clothes from QVC, and lately I send a lot back because of poor quality. I almost didn't order this dress. I don't usually like GILI. I am a little conservative in taste (as befits my advanced years) and a lot of their things seem faddish and silly to me. A lot of their things are grossly overpriced as well. But I was looking for maxi dresses in dark colors and these seemed very attractive, and reasonable in price. I ordered it in both colors. I did size up based on the measurements given. I was delighted when they arrived. Fit is perfect. Yes, as some reviewers have noted, the fabric is a little heavy, but that gives the dress a little structure and makes a nice outline. I live in Alabama, and I don't find it too warm to wear here. I like the dress from the front, but the back view is even more spectacular. Something about the way the shoulders are cut makes the back look really great, even on my plus size body. The dress is quality made. All of the seams are sewn straight with nice finishing details like lingerie loops on the shoulder. I did sew the slit closed, but other than that, no alterations were necessary for me. I only wish that this dress came in other colors and/or patterns.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Lagunagirl Not for me
Ordered green in Petite Small. My mistake - should have tried XS. I find the color to be very very drab (and I love all colors of green!) but this one missed the mark for me. Material is quite heavy for summer, but would be great in Fall with a jacket. Returning

I love the style but hate the heavy fabric. I don't understand why a sleeveless summer dress would be made out of such a heavy (hot) fabric. Also sizing off, runs small compared to other QVC apparel.

I ordered this dress in the blue. The color is nice and much to my surprise the cut is flattering. At first glance I thought the dress would be too tight but it fits very nicely. My only complaint is the fabric. The fabric is a bit stiff. Would have like it in a rayon spandex. Petite length is good - not too short. Going to wash before I wear it and maybe the fabric will soften.

I got this dress in the blue and the color is pretty, the cut is flattering and the petite length is perfect. My only complaint is that I wish the fabric content was a little different. Would love this in a rayon spandex.

I bought this dress in the blue and love it. The medium petite fits great, just the right length. Looks great belted too. Thinking about the green.
