Rated 5 out of 5 by qcqueen OMG, it's gorgious!!!!
After reading some of the reviews, I decided to go for the Large, even though I am typically a medium. Also, being a Senior I wanted something that didn't make people stare and say, she thinks she's 20....Ha.. Instead, it makes me FEEL like I am 20, but is conservative enough that folks will just hopefully do a double-take and smile. The top of the dress fits PERFECTLY, covers the arm pits, doesn't show my bra line, and just slings down to the floor. I am so excited about this dress.....My son is opening a club at a beach resort and I am wearing this to the grand opening. Thank you QVC for such a gorgeous outfit. My husband is still whistle-ing at me.
Make sure you size up, to insure a slinky fit, and not a too-tight one.

I bought this dress in black during a TSV recently. I really like the dress and the material (which has just enough stretch). I am 5'9" tall and the dress is long enough to wear with or without a heel. I love that you can dress it up with accessories or down and can be worn in the winter with a nice leather jacket and a boot. The reason I didn't give it a five-star rating was due to the fact that I ordered an XL when I needed a Large. However, I kept the dress and have received many compliments when I wear it. As a first time buyer of this designer, I now know my exact size when ordering in the future.

I really wanted this dress in the black but unfortunately it had long been sold out. So, I ordered it in two sizes in the red. First of all, the material is great....it's lined and a bit stretchy which is nice. I am 5'2.5", 112 pounds and a 34D-DD. I ordered the XXS and XS because I wasn't sure how this brand runs in clothing or how it would fit in the bust since I'm larger busted. I tried on the XXS and it fit fine..not tight at all but very figure-flattering. Not too tight in the bust either or on the back. Although I like allot about this product, I am ultimately going to return them both. Here's why...the color is more of a brighter cherry/orangie-ish red, which with my blonde hair is okay, but even with the lining, you can see the outline of my underpants/thong around my waist in the back. This is NOT cool and I could never wear a dress that shows that. Don't get me wrong...it's not see-thru, but you can see the outline of the fabric of my underpants "enough" to make it "not decent" for me to wear it. I'd be self-conscious the entire time wearing the dress and that would suck the joy out of it.
To avoid this, I'd need to order in black, but as I shared, they were sold out. Great figure-flattering dress thought. At 5' 2.5" I may have wanted to shorten just a bit to show a bit more shoe if I was keeping it, but wearable as it is for the 3"- 4" heels I typically wear.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Mimi6550 Another Unique Design!
I ordered the black. Having ordered GILI in the past I know to always size up! In this particular dress, there is a looseness in the upper and mid section which makes me think I could have for once have worn a medium! But, my thought too is that a medium would have been a little more tight fitting over the hips than what I would have liked. I love GILI because of the uniqueness in the designs, something that sets a lover of uniqueness a part, so to speak. I will continue to buy GILI and trust that eventually sizing issues will be resolved. Particularly, if Jill and QVC listens to the comments of the buyers of the GILI line.

I have closet full of GILI garments and accessories which I started collecting since the initial LRS, including several GILI maxi dresses...but never enough! I was excited to get this one home after seeing it on air since it has a little twist with the skirt! However, the dress arrived with a large pull, front and center at the bust? The material is thin (poly/span), and tends to cling a little despite the fact that I sized up to XS, and it is roomy ( but comfy). I heard Jill say that she sized up in this color, but not in the black. The skirt underneath adds slight bulk in the lower portion (in this coral), but its fine. I am 5'7" 122 lbs, Hips:36" Bust:36C. I see I can easily have chosen my usual size, XXS, but I heard Jill say she sized up in this particular color, so I did and chose XS. Since I received mine brand-new with such a bad pull which "spider webbed" horizontally across the entire bust without wear, I wonder how it will wear? I wish the material had more heft to it to avoid this issue. Otherwise, a pretty dress.
