Susan Graver Ponte Knit Color-Block Dress with Bateau Neck
Excellent, figure flattering...Need more In 3X
This dress is wonderful for your plus size customers. It is very figure flattering. I have the peridot/navy and the pink/brown. I would like to order the beige/black and blue water/navy; however, there are no more available in 3X. Please bring this item back, so we can order more colors.
Perfect for me
I ordered this dress to take on cruises, it's perfect. Dress it up and good for formal wear, easy to pack, light weight, just what I need. I'm glad that I read the reviews about sizing, I'm a medium but ordered a small because of the comments and the small is a perfect fit.
PERFECT if you Size Down
I love this dress -- got it in the pink and now MUST have the other colors.
I typically wear XS in Susan Graver clothes -- I tend to be a bit hippy while smaller on top, though I feel the need to cover my arms. This dress (when SIZED DOWN one size) fit me perfectly. It felt really weird buying the XXS, but it worked out -- just look at the models...they're really tiny, I'm sure they're wearing the XXS and it looks a little boxy...if you have some shape, this dress does nice things for you! The fabric is sturdy enough to keep it's shape while also being so soft. Incredible!
One note for the website: the extra size chart that gives the specifics for this dress is misleading --- it says the "chest Circ 1" below Armhole" on the XXS is only 33 1/2 inches -- I think they must be referring to your rib measurement and not what you would think of as your bust since I'm at 37"...I'd be swimming in the size small which shows measured at 35.7...
Anyway, I love it and will be getting all the colors now!
Yes, size down!!!
I absolutely love this dress. Received it in the mail today and can't wait to wear it to church tomorrow. I followed the advice of others who said to size down, and am glad I did. The fit is perfect, the material is very soft, and even my husband commented on how nice it looks on me. I ordered a size medium: I am 5'7 and it falls just below my knee, and best of all, it hides my tummy issues.
I originally purchased this dress in my usual size, but i sent it back for a size smaller. Ladies this dress is made for someone with curvey hips, if you don't have curvey hips you have to buy a size smaller. The material is so soft, and the natural stretch of the fabric fits and feels so good. The length is perfect for work and play, not to short. This was my first Susan Graver purchase and i am very pleased. This dress makes me feel young and sexy. (can't put a price on that).
Order a size down!
You must order a size down or else you'll look like you're wearing a maternity dress. Also, the sleeve "bands" don't match up with the skirt like on the video so it looks off kilter. Fabric is nice and feels good on. I just had to return it as it wasn't worth the cost especially since I had to pay s/h twice to do so. I bought the wheat/black combo and it was a little too bland, even with some jewelry. I really tried to like and keep it.
I guess I have lost weight already
I got this dress and to my suprise I have to send it back because it is too big. I now have orded it in a smaller size. You might need to size down if there is a question. Nice color - easy fabric. The only reason I wouldn't recommed as a gift is sizing might be just a bit off.
Sent it back
I wanted to like it, but have to agree that the fabric and fit were not up to SG usual standards.
NICE - BUT
Received this dress yesterday and tried it on and its a ok dress. I feel its more
like a $30.00 dress than a $50.00 dress. I am still keeping it because I am getting
really tired of sending back because of s/h. Gave it 3 stars because of price.
This was a no go for me
I like Susan Graver clothing and tried this dress out but it was odd fitting and didn't feel right in the sizing. I returned it. However, it was a great material and stylish design.
So excited when I saw this dress. Even more excited to wear it! It's beautiful but very simple. Fits great! Skims past all the parts you don't want to see. Very comfortable! Going to purchase in other colors.
Had to send this back as it was just too loose. I ordered XS but it hung on the body just like another reviewer said.
