Joan Rivers Petite Length Ponte Knit Sheath Dress w/ Built-in Shaper is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from CLASSIC LBD This little black dress is so versatile! The fabric has a nice stretch, but bounces back into shape without sag. There is and interior, hidden shaper which eliminates the need for a slip or other shape-wear. The empire waist is figure flattering and the armhole is snug but not uncomfortable. No bra will peak out of this dress. Dress this one up or down.... you won't be disappointed!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Please make with short sleeves! I miss JR's short sleeve sheaths with a scoop neck! Please bring those back! No leather trim! No square neck. Just a petite short sleeved scoop neck sheath.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A little Audrey Hepburn I am so happy with this dress. It has been many years since I have worn a dress, usually pants and pant suits. I recently retired and just wanted to try a dress again, just to see if I could pull this off. This dress is so feminine and comfortable. The shaper underneath is so sweet, with the little lace on the bottom. Thank you Joan Rivers collection, I feel like a female again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not as nice as I'd hoped I was expecting this dress to be more similar to the JR luxe knit sheath dress from last year which I like very much. The fabric on this dress is more casual than the luxe knit and doesn't fit me as well. The shaper is gentle and lacks much shaping power and I would have had to wear another shaper with it. There is no kick pleat on this dress...something I expected and wanted for looks and comfort. The zipper is a little longer than last year's dress but not as long as I'd hoped it would be. I'm glad I bought a few of the luxe knit dresses last year because this one is just not for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Quality, Nice Style & Length. Size Down! I ordered in my Q size had to return for 1 size down. (No, I am not a size 0 ladies). I got it today and fit is much better. Length for petites spot on. Thanks Joan & David for this, proper petites rare. I do prefer sleeves and don't wear much black, this is my first little black dress. Quality and very well made. Updated style and seaming are flattering. THANK YOU for the built in shaper that does not suffocate - you can move and breathe while being smoothed out and classy. YAY! Should be very versatile dress up or down. Hence probably pack on my dream European vacation in a couple years... I have a difficult time with zippers but no problems with this one. The material very nice but may be a bit of a lint / hair magnet F.Y.I. May wrinkle some too but no worries a hint of steaming will easily fix. More colors please! Similar style WITH sleeves yes?! :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Would like more colors This just arrived and I really like the style, fit, shaper lining. I am a larger petite size and this is actually slimming. I would definitely order this in other colors...dark navy, dark grey, dark taupe. I am only 5'1" and the length was perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PLEASANTLY PLEASED Wonderful dress purchase - Fit was perfect and flattering. The perfect LBD - Would like to see it in another color. I purchased the 12 petite - I am 5' 2" and weigh 140.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality While I liked the quality of this dress, I had issues with the fit. For some strange reason the built in shaper (which is only a light shaper) fit nicely, but the actual dress part fit way too loose. Perhaps it is simply a matter of ordering a smaller size, but I am reluctant to try. Aside from that I was impressed with the quality of the material and tailoring. Returning due to poor fit.
