A221526 - M by Marc Bouwer Animal Print Maxi Dress w/ Ruffle Detail
I just received this dress in the XS and S, and thought I might have needed a M based on other reviews. Well, the XS fit perfectly after I eased the dress over the hips. I used to be a solid XS at QVC, but I can't always depend on that anymore now that I'm getting older as I am carrying more weight in my belly and across the back and chest. My measurements are 36" bust, 30" waist, 36" hips, 5'4" and 133 pounds if this helps anyone. The small fit as well, but was not as flattering as it definitely had more material - it definitely had more room in the hip area. The dress is beautiful - different, feminine and flirty. My only problem was deciding which size to order. I will be returning the S in red.
LOVE Marc Bouwer
I have several Marc Bouwer pieces and he is one of my favorite designers at the Q. This dress is beautiful. I love the fit and feel of the fabric, it is very soft. I always order a medium in Marc Bouwer clothes and the medium in this dress fit perfectly. I am so excited I got such a great dress at a clearance price too! Thanks Marc and QVC!!
size up gals!!!
I usually wear a 2x in Marc Bower, and elsewhere... but, i read the reviews so i sized up and ordered a 3x. I was sure it would fit, as i've never had a problem with his line of clothes. I needed it in a hurry, so i had it expressed shipped, What a disappointment.
Although it arrived on time, the dress did not fit!!! So sad... It is a very cute dress and Wow, guess what? It does not drag on the floor either, like most maxi dresses do for the 5'4 gal.
The length is perfect, the colors are a nice combo and blend well together. The ruffles at the bottom of the dress are adorable, and not too much.
The dress has a stretchy lining, but, the actual outer dress does not give at all. The dress was really tight through the hips/seat area. There was no way i would be able to sit down or move in this dress.
The tie was worthless and added no decor at all. I so wanted to love this dress, so much so that i may fork out an arm and a leg to take it to the tailor to see if something can be done w/ it.
This is a really cute maxi dress. I bought it for my daughter and it looks absolutely adorable on her -- nice details -- great print.
Really like it!
I really like this dress. I got the blue. It has a straight skirt bottom so if you're curvy you should size up as I did. I am 5"6" 150 lbs and got a large, fits great with a little bit of extra room for a flowy bottom half and the top fit me perfect (36DD). The material is lightweight, perfect for summer. The length is great, long but doesn't come anywhere near the floor, great for platforms/wedge sandals or flat sandals. Can easily wear a bra with the wider straps. The cinched waist is faux, there is no drawstring to gather so you can wear it as is or it would look great with a wide belt. You can dress this up or down. Overall I'm really happy with it and I'm sure I'll wear it a lot this summer. Can't seem to get enough animal print.
I bought this dress on an impulse since I already have maxi dresses but thought this one was a bit more sexy than mine. I was right! And I am a size 18. I ordered an XL- BEST FIT OF ANY OF MY MAXI DRESSES! Also super flattering to boot. I got the coral color, and love the variation of shades. I am picky and have tons of clothes- this was the best purchase I have made this year. Thanks Marc!
I am between a medium and a large; the large is a good fit for me; I can actually slip it over my head without unzipping it, but I don't think the medium would have fit me int the hip area. I love the teal colored leopard print and the flowy feminine nature of the dress; wll be great summer dress with sandals. The waist is a little high on me but I can make it work.
DID NOT WORK FOR ME...
I like to go on record and say that I love Marc Bouwer's clothes and I am very happy he is on QVC. I have several pieces of his clothing. This dress is very feminine and made well; however the hip area is straight and does not have much flare. I think if you carry the weight in your hips, as I do, you will have difficulty pulling this dress over them. I did not have concern with the bust area. I think the dress is beautiful and will work for most but not for us 'hippie chicks'.
MY 1ST & FAVORITE MAXI DRESS!!!!!!!
This dress is AMAZING! I LOVE LOVE everything about it! When I tried this dress on, I was like why in the world haven't I jumped on the maxi dress band wagon before now!? If I would have known how great I'd look and feel and how comfortable they are, I would have a closet full by now! I got the red clay in a large. It fits perfect. I'm a size 14 pant and normally an xl in all tops everywhere besides here at the Q. On everything I've ordered so far on QVC, I wear a large. If it helps any, I'm 5'4", 175#, 36D, and 45 yrs old. This dress is so beautiful, feminine, fun and on trend. I thought it might be "too much" but not at all. I originally wanted the blue one, but I'm in love with my red one. If they blue large wasn't sold out, I'd order it too. You can wear this with heels or flip-flops, and it's adorable both ways. I'm a little self-conscious about my upper arms, as I'm losing weight and not totally toned up yet. So, I bought a cute, black, light-weight, summery shrug to wear over it. Sooo cute!! Size large is supposed to be 14-16, but I think this is a true to even little smaller size 14. I definitely recommend this. You will LOVE IT!!!!
I was a little skeptical because of the reviews. I even thought I might have ordered the wrong size. I got a L and sometimes I wear XL. The size was perfect. The length was great (I'm 5ft 9in) and the colors are beautiful. Definitely a great buy1
Was really looking forward to receiving this maxi, because feminine ones are hard to find. Bought this dress in the red in my normal size. Although the dress is made well and I love the style, it runs small. Hip area was too tight and if I had sized up, the bust area would have been too large for me. Unhappy to have to return it, but this one was not a keeper.
This Is What All Maxi Dresses Want To Be
I purchased this maxi in my normal size small, in the red brick, and the fit is perfection
as well as the length, I am full busted a 34 D and the dress on top fit beautifully,
the color way of the red brick is spectacular, muted with corals and black, it does not scream "trend maxi dress" I live in SouthFlorida, and I wear long flowy skirts and dresses most of the year, this is a timeless piece, I could change the look by wearing a shrug, little jacket, long cardi a variety of shoes etc, the ruffles are not over the top
The dress is quite well made, the cut of the body of the dress, slim, yet not revealing
again, it doesn't scream trend, I could wear this to the club for dinner to a pool party the
This piece is a class act, and what all the other maxi dresses want to be
it is neither to much nor too little
