Liz Claiborne New York Coral Print Knit Maxi Dress
The fabric of this dress is nice quality and very comfortable. I am a size small petite, so I had to shorten and alter the shoulder straps. As other reviewers stated, the top of the bodice runs big.. I took it in an inch under the arms on each side.
It was worth taking time to sew alterations because the dress falls beautifully on the body and the material feels great even on a warm day.
excellent style and fit
Love this maxi. Got compliments from my husband, daughter and daughter's friend. I purchased the Navy and paired it with the coral crocheted shrug from citi knits.
I have become a hugh Liz Claiborne fan this summer and I didn't believe the reviews about the "bat wing" arm holes. I a full busted person and ordering a size 1x , as I always do, I thought the dress would be fine. Well it was not and I sent it back. Even on me it could have been taken in about 2 inches on each side,
I agree with other reviewers about the funky fit at the armholes...however, it was an easy fix at the tailor and the dress is fantastic! Great to travel in and I always get compliments - ( I purchased the coral print) - oh, and it washes like a dream : )
Agree Totally With Yikes
I totally agree with the review that Yikes submitted. Dress is made incorrectly. I ordered my usual size in Liz Claiborne. It fits everywhere, in the bust, waist, hips and length was perfect. I'm 5'7" and evenly proportioned. Under the arms and sides at the bust area, the fabric peaked out like bat wings. Fitted in the bust, but huge amount of fabric on the sides under the arms. Exactly like bat wings! Ordering a size down would make it too tight in bust, waist and hips. Such a shame because it is a beautiful dress.
Order Down A Size
Just received this dress after loving it online and reading all the reviews and checking out the measurements of this garment. Based on the reviews, I ordered down a size (normally a size 3x, but ordered the 2x). It fits perfectly up top and everywhere else. Have been looking for a long time at maxi dresses, and I knew I wanted something classic, made with natural material that wasn't too revealing. (I'm 50 years old.) This fits the bill all the way. The high cotton content will ensure it breathes well and stays comfortable. The navy is beautiful, with khaki coral outlined with a touch of orangey coral. This will be great with a mid-heel sandal and shrug or bolero. I say go for it!
i bought this dress in size small which is my normal size and it fit s great now too long for a 5 ft. 3 inch woman just had the top altered just alitle big in the chest area but worth it.
High quality fabric, attractive print, great style, well made....poor fit!! I am a tall buxom 2X. Really want to love it, but, alas, the excessive material under the arms has got to be a defect in pattern making or manufacturing and is most unflattering. Had the price been lower, I would have considered altering, but unfortunately I will have to pay the cost to return.
So glad I was on waitlist. Fits great, and is flattering. Just got the navy, still waiting for black. True to size fit for me, XS
Best fitting dress
This dress fits my body type perfect. I am a 40E and a size 12 and this dress is perfect for full figured big breasted women. The length is great and i am only 5'3. I do not need to hem like most dresses. My only complaint is the color. I got the landmark green with coral designs and i hate the color, but am keeping it anyway.
I love the print and the fit, got xs which is the same size as i got in the lcny printed tee with soft pleats. These are the only two things ive gotten from the line so far, but so far sizing is consistent. Did not find bust to be disproportionately large at all. i'm 36b, measurements 36, 28, 39, 5'11". Only bad thing is i'm gonna have to hem a bunch off to bring it above the knee. I dont like maxi length, but this print was too cool to not get!
I LOVE THIS MAXI
I don't understand the negative reviews. This is a great dress, I love the material and the fit is sleek. Usually maxi dresses have too much added material making one look a little heavy, this one does not. I'm 5'7" and wear 8/10 in dresses and 10/12 in jeans. I got the medium and it fits like it was made for me. As far as the comment about this dress being for big busts, I am a 36C and it fits fine in the bust area. Plus there is no need to worry about showing too much clevage, the top is very conservative.
