Rated 4 out of 5 by ClareMarie LOVE! But a smidge too small in bodice
I am petite, very fit and purchased the XXS. Fit like a dream except there was no room to gain a single lb. This is probably a situation reserved for middle aged woman like myself. The GILI line is more youthful so the cut makes sense for the expected audience. Sadly I returned both of the dresses, knowing my love for food.

i have several dresses of this style and they usually look good on me. I like the way they skim the body, then drop to a stylish and unexpected detail of an asymmetric hem dropping into a pleat.
But the knit on this is so heavy (usually a good thing) that the pleat doesn't drape well It just lays there, and not gracefully. The other dresses that I have and have loved are much lighter weight, more fluid knit so it falls in grace curves, not sticks to your body.

Purchased in both twilight and melon in xx-small (5'2", 105lbs, 34B). Fit is good and the length is perfect on my petite frame. This dress can be worn casual or dressy. I'm very pleased.

I purchased this dress in the Melon color - I love it. Don't understand some of the negative reviews, fits true to size, and the asymmetrical design is SO flattering! Dress it up or down. Another GILI winner!!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Malgorzata Super for anything
I love my blue dress, it is flattering, making me look thinner, taller. The color is beautiful, dark blue or light navy which goes with any color. It also looks great with flats or high heels. V-neck is just perfect depth, not too much, but enough to look sexy.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Bobbi Ohio Not flattering
My husband mentioned the back looked too short. I am 5'3 and wear XS. The V was cut too low so I returned both dresses I bought in each color. Very disappointed as I liked the dress. Made for dancing once you put it on, but a let down.

So, for all you who are short, I am 5' and this dress is too long waisted for a petite. What to do??? Hike it up and wear a belt. I have an EF obi belt in black suede and leather. Navy dress, black belt, size small. Arm holes are perfect. Dress is high style. Don't worry about the straight hem in back. Please don't tell me you really want the hem to be uneven all around. No way. This is STYLE. Great purchase. BTW, I work in the arts. This is spot on.
Rated 4 out of 5 by EvieP Pretty dress but too long
I really liked the dress but it was too long for me. I'm 5'1 and I would have loved it in a petite size. Other than it being too long for my preference I thought it was very pretty and would repurchase if available in petite.
