Rated 4 out of 5 by Avarose Beautiful Dress But Short
I loved this dress in the Merlot, 20WP. I usually wear a 1X or 18 regular size in stores,but go up to a 20WP if it is a petite sized item. I'm 5' 2" and I seem to be too short for regular sizes to fit in the length and I'm too tall for many petite sizes to fit in the length so I float in-between regular and petite sizes for whatever works better without having to alter too much. This dress fit wonderfully and accentuated the positives and masked the negatives until you got to the bottom. It was way too short in the front. It hit the middle of my thigh several inches above my knees. The way it draped over my ample rear in the back made it even shorter in the back than it was in the front. I could not wear this to work and feel comfortable sitting or standing even if I wore it with opaque tights and boots so I had to return it. If you are in your 20's or early 30's or are slender the length might be appropriate/ok, but if you are a seasoned, classy, curvy, petite lady I would say try ordering it in a regular size instead of the petite for the length to work better. And hey, you can always take it up a little if you have to - like petites often have to anyway.

This is a great dress!! I love it!!! This is my first Joan Rivers outfit and it's marvelous!
I got the Merlot in 16P, and it fits perfectly. I've already gone back and ordered the Black.
This dress is sooo comfortable, I can't believe it! And it's machine wash,too, winner all the way around! Thanks Joan!
Rated 5 out of 5 by ohmymama I LOVE THIS DRESS!!
...So much so that this is my 3rd one!!! I am 4'11", in my 50s and on the heavy side, so I was afraid it wouldn't fit my curves, but boy was I wrong. The fit is amazing - not too snug - and the length is perfect. I get many complements, even from my mother (!!!) who always reminds me of how large I am. (My sister is a petit extra small...I am a petit extra large - hence the reminder from mom). I digress...
Oh, it washes very well with no pilling of the fabric. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THIS DRESS!!!
I loved Joan, too!!!
Rated 4 out of 5 by orionwatcher Love the Dress But it's Short
I would have given this 5 stars it they were not so short. I am 5'5" and they hit me above the knee. Unfortunately I have fat knees and like the mid to below the knee length but typically regular lengths are too long for me so I got a petite. I got this in gray, green and burgandy. I am keeping them because perhaps it will give me the incentive to get rid of some fat... Perfect matches to the various Jackets that I have in Joan River's line. Together they make a great very attractive business dress and jacket!!! Very stylish and comfortable.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dont Tell Lou "A" From the Teacher
I love the fit of this dress. I am petite, 5 ft., and this dress fits perfectly. I LOVE the pockets and the simplicity of the style. I can add a scarf or pin for pop. The hem is perfect for me; just the right length which is so difficult to find. I am a teacher and I use the pocket to clip my badge. I get compliments all the time when wearing this dress. I hope David makes this style available again in lighter, muted shades like light brown, peach, teal and beige. Please, please make more of this wonderful dress.
Rated 5 out of 5 by cjhk Best classic buy
I ordered one, then went back for all of the colors. I am a size 12 on the bottom, size 14 in the menopause middle. The size 14 fit perfect. As a basic classic, I can add a jacket for the office, giving a lot of versatility. So comfortable too. Love, Love, Love it.
Rated 4 out of 5 by alicialee Beautiful Dress But Not For Me
I ordered this dress in green and grey to go with a Joan River Jackets. I love her clothes and have many pieces. This is a lovely dress but beware, it runs small and is very short. I ordered the petite in one size larger and it was snug. I am 5’2” and it was also too short, a little longer than mid-thigh. I equate the length to a tunic or long T-shirt. I am 66 years old and do not care for so short a dress that I can’t bend over comfortably or will come up to my thighs when I sit. I did not order a women’s size as sugessted to get the longer length because often the torso is too long and since it has pockets they probably would have been too far down the dress. So, I’d rather have a longer petite length that I can hem if I wish to. I feel that this dress is better suited for a younger lady who really wants a shorter dress. If so, this is the dress for you. I only wish they made the petite size longer. I’m sorry to have to return such a pretty dress because now I have to find something else to match the jackets.
Rated 1 out of 5 by miagabby2 Not what I Expected
This dress was a disappointment. The quality was not what I expected; it was too short, and the fabric had a terrible odor. Although the petite photo showed a knee-length dress, it was above my knee, and I'm 5"1". I did not have to try it on to know it would be too tight. I put it right back into the plastic package immediately for return to QVC.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Layla4444 Not so sure..
I have had two disappointments with this line. I find the sizing runs small, and the quality is sometimes below par. This simple sheath fit snug, and I ordered a size up hoping for it to glide over problem areas. It is passable, but, at 5'2" the petite length is SHORT. I am sorry I didn't order the regular, and it is too much of a hassle to send back.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Derek03 Very Pretty
I ordered this dress in all four colors. It fits beautifully, however, the length is to short for me and I am 5'3" and 110 lbs. I am ordering the regular length in two colors as that is all that is remaining. I am sadly returning the other four dresses.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lulu01 Best LBD Must Buy!
I wore this dress on Valentines Day over the weekend and it was perfect. You can dress it up for a night out with your hunnie or dress it casual with flip glops or sandals and a denim jacket. So worth the money. I got the grey and blk. I am 5'3, 140 and my normal size is 4 so I got the 4P and they both fit perfectly. Love the two pockets in the front too. The ponte knit is just the right amount of material for all year round. Must buy ladies
