Susan Graver Set of 2 Liquid Knit Print and Solid Dresses
Only 50% usable
These two dresses were the very first Susan Graver items I ever ordered. I ordered these in Black/Print in a size Large. The fit was fine but the sleeveless/print looked just awful on me. Not SGs fault, I just do not 'do' sleeveless. I held out hope when Susan said her sleeveless worked even for those who did not wear sleeveless because of the cut she gave her dresses. I must be an exception to the rule...the sleeveless went into the tag sale bag. The solid black is now hanging in my closet and I think I have worn it twice. The cut of the dress is just 'ok' on me. The fabric is 'ok' but I am not crazy about the slits along the bottom hem. I think the part that is not 'ok' is the color. I know, black is black, but this black is a very dead black. It seems to be void of any life, spark or interest. It is dead. The two times I have worn it I have it felt the need to wear a white sweater over it to hide as much of the black as I could. I would give it one star but since I have worn one of them twice, I gave these two stars. I know that Susan does some great stuff, I have a few pieces that I LOVE, but being a shorter, chubby, older woman, I need to be aware of cut, fabric & color. I know, I should have sent them back, but I didn't. Live and learn.
Great value, larger than expected
I purchased two sets of these in my regular size large. The blue geometric and the teal tropical. They were too large. I should have sent them back and re-ordered in medium. I did not, I kept both sets. I would love to purchase a couple of these sets this Spring/summer in medium a size down from my usual size. Since I'm 5'1" and weigh a little more than I should, I would also like it very much if you made this great value in petite.
Love The Dress
I purchased the peridot and animal print dress in an xs. I am 5ft and weigh 130 lbs. The dresses fit perfect and are so flattering. I especially love the sleveless print dress as it hids a lot of flaws. The solid dress is nice I think it would be better in a print or a darker solid as you can see right thru it. I'll probably use it as a cover up or give it to my 18 year old granddaughter to where with leggings. With that being said, Susan would you please make the rest of these dresses available again. I would love to get more but everything is out of stock. Please Please restock!!!!! Also Susan, can you make the sleevless print dresses available without having to buy the solid.
Not true to chart sizing
I liked the dresses. The solid colour dress was HUGE on me. I take a large because of my bust, this solid dress was so big I had to send it back. The sleeveless dress fit ok. So I ordered the dresses in a small. They should fit, I hope.
Love the sleeveless...the other??
I have several of these sets. I love the sleeveless dress but the other makes me look awful, being a very plus size.
Soooo.....I wear the sleeveless as a dress anywhere and everywhere....the the other becomes a coverup at the beach. I have a great collection of coverups now.
I do wish Susan would sell these lovely dresses separately.
I do have the leaf pattern in several colors as she did/does sell those individually, I believe.
Love these dresses
Have one set of these and I am ordering more. Please come up with a solid navy dress as well!
Very pretty and sexy style.
I love this set of dresses. They are shapely, and the skirt swings in a flirty way while the person walks. I like to wear it with a "skinny belt", a shrug, and 2" heels. It fits perfectly and is very flattering. I wear the medium and am 5'1'. The dress hits the bottom of my knees. I chose the green peridot set and the coral set. I give each set a five star rating.
LOVE AT FIRST WEAR
I have bought several of these and wear them a lot. I am 1X/full figured and don't wear shorts. I use the sleeveless dresses in place of shorts. They cover me in all the right places and are very cool. I wore 3 of them on a short vacation to Bimini. The dresses with sleeves are just beautiful and proportioned beautifully for my figure. I couldn't find a thing wrong with them other than I couldn't get ALL the colors. Please bring back the black. Love Love them. Thanks SG
Absolutely loved the printed sleeveless dress but the fabric on the solid dress was so sheer I couldn't wear it out of the house. Sadly, I returned them together.
They run large. I'm 5'6", 130, with long legs, small hips, and a high waist, and the small is very large around the middle. This causes them to hang from my large bust like a nightgown. It's a fit and flare shape, without the fit. I can alter them, but I shouldn't have to at that price.
Love these dresses
I have two sets of this combo. Love the flattering way they drape your body. You can dress them up or go casual with this set. Another extra added bonus, they do not have to be ironed. I wash them, put them on a hanger to dry and I am good to go. Give them a try, you will not be disappointed.
I purchased these dresses several months ago. I was rather disappointed in the styling and the fit. They are very matronly, and unflattering. I have tried to like this purchase by adding accessories and it just doesn't quite make it. So sorry. I wanted to like them. Wish I had sent them back. I ordered the blue and the colors are nice. I imagine that they would also launder nicely.
