Susan Graver Ponte Knit Color Blocked Dress with Bateau Neck
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.
My favorite dress
I probably have 10 dresses by Susan and I love them all., but this one is my favorite!!! I like it so much that I'm ordering the other colors. I already have the rose & brown and the blue & navy. If your sitting on the fence bout this one just jump on off and try it. You won't be disappointed.
Comfortable and pretty
I'm 5'8 and 280lbs. I bought the 3x in Water/Navy. Susan's stuff is always on the larger side, and this dress is particularly big. I definitely could have gone down a size, but since I'm going to be wearing this to work (I'm a teacher,) I decided to keep the 3x for the roominess. I'm a little unhappy with the fabric (my fault) I didn't read the description well enough. I thought it was a liquid knit, not a ponte. I have another Susan Graver ponte knit dress that pilled terribly after a few wearings. I hope this one holds up better. It does look nice and it's certainly comfortable.
This is a versatile dress. I like that it is basic and not loud with prints. A simple jacket or button up sweater will only enhance the timeless style. Thanks again Susan!
BUY IT! Put Together Comfy Sexy!
This dress is wonderful. The drape is perfect and not clingy, but not too big or tent-like. I am 5'4" / 140lbs and ordered a size small. The color block hits at the right spot to give it that empire flattering look. I purchased the blue and wear it with platform cork peep toes and have worn it to worship service with neutral patent pumps. It is gorgeous! I plan to wear it to a family dinner / get together this week. Casual and dressy all at the same time.....depending on your shoes and accessories. I am on the lookout for a scarf to wear with this so that I can wear it into the fall season!
