Rated 5 out of 5 by annsav Everyone needs a basic black dress
This is a basic dress that can be dressed up or down. The fit is best for those who don't like a swing dress. I bought the black for a family funeral and church. It could be dressed up as well.
Rated 2 out of 5 by schoolbelle Sizing seems off
I have a closet full of ponte knit swing dresses that I wear often and love. When I went online to order a new color it seems that this style has been discontinued. The swing dress was always so highly rated I can't imagine why it wouldn't be a staple in the lineup! Anyway, I decided that this dress might be my next best option so I ordered in my usual size. The color and fabric are great but the sizing seems off. The top around the shoulders seems large and it is unflatteringly tight over my tummy and hips. I'm 63 years old and pear shaped so it's not entirely the dresses' fault but I'm sort of giving up on ordering any more Susan Graver for now.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Lovecats Too big and loose fitting
I was excited to get this dress. I was looking for something just like it, a heavier weight
for winter and a nice quality material. This dress fits that description.
When I tried it on, I was so disappointed. I am 5' 5" and 150 lbs. and usually a size 12
or a medium fit perfectly. But, this dress is a medium and it is so baggy! I could have it altered and shaped to fit me perfectly, but I am not sure I want to spend the money.
If I return it for a smaller size, I have no confidence it will fit!
Darn, that's the problem when you order on- line. I have had no problem before with
Susan Graver clothes, but did this time. If you are going to order this dress, keep in mind that the style is very loose fitting with a very wide middle.

I think we women of a certain age need a dress that fits below the knee and this one fits the bill.. The fabric is weighty just enough and doesn't cling. Belt it or not.. Perfect to dress up with jewelry or wear with tights and boots... Like the sleeve length...It's a keeper.. Finally!
Rated 5 out of 5 by Not Mine Tastefully chic!
This black dress is tasetefully chic. I will be able to wear it from church to dinner at the captain's table! The fit is perfect. I especially like the mesh inset at the neckline as a frame for my QVC jewelry. Love it!

I don't know that I m so fond of the fabric on this and for me the fit is not great, but it fills a need in my closet for a heavier weight, longer sleeve, basic dress-up or dress-down dress. The biggest issue with the fit is that the shoulders are too big for me, but I will probably wear it with a jacket of some sort so that might not be an issue. I bought the navy. Maybe I should have given it four stars as I think I'm keeping it, but do have a few issues with it, so I am not in love with it.

I just received the blue & black dresses in Small. They look so great. I am 5' 3" and 78 years old and my weight is about 120-125. As Bob Hope once said "I used to have a great shape, but it's all behind me now." The dress is about 3 " below my knees, and is perfect on the neckline. No bra straps showing. Susan, I wish you would have some petite tops, as I have to shorten the regular ones. Anyway, back to the dresses. Perfect for almost anything, dress them up -fancy vest, scarf, belt, etc. Boots look great for a more casual look. Hope this helps someone concerned about the fit.

I ordered my usual QVC/Susan Graver size and the dress's cut is very loose. Belting it would help, but that's not my intent with the dress. The dress may look better on an "apple" figure. Craftsmanship is of the usual high quality you can expect from SG. Received today and going back tomorrow.
