GF by Geren Ford Sleeveless High-Low Maxi Dress
I understand the negative reviews for this dress. The material is easily wrinkled and the scoopneck is low, giving a sloppy look. However I've decided to follow the suggestions of other posters here and have the straps altered. Normally I would just send a piece back but the blue color is just so pretty I have to try to make this dress work!
Looked better on TV!
Oh my goodness the fabric on this dress is so cheap. Its going right back in the mail. It looks like a different dress in person. Only thing nice about this dress is the color . I ordered the blue.
great dress with some flaws
I ordered this dress in emerald color and love it. I am 5'3" and have not decided whether to have dress hemmed. I can wear with ON wedge flip flops or wedge-heeled espridrilles fine. However, the straps could be taken up an inch or so for a better shoulder/armhole fit. It is just a small negative that could be solved with a strapless bra or wearing a cute cardigan. It did come very very very wrinkled, which makes me worried about standing up after sitting. Time and extended wear will tell over time, as it is 100% rayon. I was able to steam out with my Rowenta and mini travel steamer.The fabric is very thin so you have to wear Spanx definitely. The dress cuts you at your smallest part of the waist which makes you look tiny. The dress is perfect for curvy figures as it has a slight mermaid -style feel. Overall, a great comfortable casual or dressy dress that doesn't have to be drycleaned. However, not worth the original full price with alterations that may need to be done...hence the 4 stars.
I am only 5' 2" and had to alter the dress. I love the blue color and the style. The straps had to be taken up at least two inches and then it brought the whole dress up. I agree the arm holes are large, but once I altered the straps it fit great. My dress, as the other reviews stated, came extremely wrinkled. I kept it because of the color and style. Very slenderizing.
Cool and Confortable
This dress fabric is a nice change from the other dresses but it is not worth the price. I purchased it strictly for the color. I wished the maxis on QVC had some umf! and variety, which if another reason why I picked up this one because it has the high/low hemline. Wish some of them had sleeves, more suitable for the office and didn't all require a shrug or coverup of some sort.
Worst purchase I've ever made
I could not believe it when I opened the package. The Dress was very wrinkled - not a very good impression of what may happen when it is washed. I decided to try it on. I have always purchased the same size on all my clothes from QVC and this dress was no different. The dress was WAY too big - like 2 sizes too big. It hung on and nothing hangs on me. The arm holes were too large - I really don't like showing the side of my bra let alone my breasts! The length was much too long. No way could I alter it to fit and still keep the high/low hemline. Sending it back immediately and very disappointed. .
This dress is flattering, stylish and the blue is so pretty. Love the high-low hemline. I'm 5'5" and it's a bit too long. Cute enough to pay someone to hem it for me.
I LOVE IT!
Yes, it was very wrinkled when it arrived. I had it pressed and wore it for hours and it was fine. I don't understand all the crying about wrinkles!
I don't care who you are, or what size you are...EVERYONE needs to buy this dress! Amazing design! And at QVC! The fabric just flows, so terrific for summer. I even ordered a size up because they were out of my size and it still fits fine, a little long because I'm on the short side, but I'm not sending it back! I noticed that some people thought the arm holes were too large, but in summer that's what I'm looking for. I haven't ever tried on a maxi dress like this, it's one of a kind.
This is an absolutely adorable dress. I'm petite and usually maxi dresses overwhelm me and look like some type of night gown on me. I did have to have it hemmed but it is a very flattering fit. I ordered the blue and it's a beautiful shade of blue...sort of a very deep cornflower blue. It does wrinkle but it's sort of that tropical casual look (when you don't fuss about wrinkles). It's very trendy and a very nice fitting garment.
I love this dress but only gave it 4 stars because the arm holes are very large and my bra shows. The blue is gorgeous. The fabric does wrinkle but I'll live with that. I have an average bust, small waist and large bottom half and this is flattering on me. Yeah!
Much cuter on air
Not sure how to describe this dress other than "very underwhelming". I tried to add a different belt (tried several) but it didn't do much to help it. On the other hand, the dress I purchased by Cynthia Vincent (A222842) is ADORABLE. Hugs in just the right places, completely becoming and can't wait to wear it...that's how every outfit should feel.
