Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sexy & Sophisticated I LOVE this dress! It is very well made and gorgeous on. I LOVE it so much, I had to order in another color. I'm 5'3 130lbs and ordered a 4P and 6P. The 4P was very fitted. I found I liked the fit better in the 6P, not as snug. Thanks g.i.l.i for bringing petites to this awesome brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Looked Stunning! I saw the initial presentation of this dress and hoped my size would be available when the price dropped. After months of watching and waiting the sale price of 99.00 came up and I hurried to purchase. I had read all the reviews about sizing and ordered a size 20 and normally wear 16W/18W; the dress fits like it was custom made! I purchased the Vanilla/grey and wore it with a grey/cream Susan Graver reversible coat for the Christmas holidays. I got so many compliments at mass and from family and friends. If you're thinking about ordering and you're not the perfect model figure I would advise you to go up one size. I am very satisfied and happy with my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection! I have had my eye on this dress for over a year now! It's finally on clearance and I can afford to splurge a bit. I ordered the 14P (because the 16P was sold out) and tried it on as soon as it arrived today! Oh my word! This dress fits perfectly and feels a bit more like scuba than ponte which is wonderful because I don't need to wear a shaper underneath! Yippee! I can't wait to wear this for my guy and see his face light up. I look and FEEL fabulous in this dress! So glad I finally purchased it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this dress! I bought this dress a few months ago and I absolutely love it. I'm 5'1 and the fit of this dress is perfect for my height. I love that this line offers petite sizes for us shorter girls. It fits the way it fits the models. I got the blush color and it is true to the picture. The quality of the dress is great; the material is not uncomfortable at all and the faux leather applique looks great. It feels like real leather too. I ordered a size 2P and it fits well (I'm 120 lbs). This dress is very versatile; it works both professionally and for evening wear. I plan on wearing this for my graduation. I love it and recommend it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Made for hip(py) women Hip because it's a very nice dress and hippy because it's big in the hip area! I got a size 2 and it fits perfectly everywhere but I have about an extra inch on each side of my hips (and I a have curves for someone my size!) I'm 118 lbs 5'4" and 34D. The extra material puckers out because of its thickness. Though I prefer to avoid alterations, I'm keeping it because I got it at a very good price. I can wear it now (in the fall) with black tights and a black jacket and on its own in the spring. I got the blush and it looks great with the black OBI belt over a jacket. Come spring, I'll be wearing it with my blush OBI belt and a pair of taupe Pumps from Clarks. As for length, I probably would have been ok with the regular length, especially because I plan to wear it belted. It hits me at the top of my knees, though this is a great look too! This is a beautiful and unique dress that accentuates any woman's figure. I hope to be rocking this dress for years to come! I guess this dress is really a 5, except for the sizing issue in the hip area, which I gather was not unique to me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning Thick material that is form fitting. Really a pretty dress. I do need to get it taken in a bit at the hips since I'm not as curvy there. The faux leather strips look real. Well made.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from NOT HAPPY! I have a wedding to attend in 10 days and when I saw this on air, I loved the way it looked on the models. Then I read the reviews and 2 of the 3 reviews were excellent. Because I've never purchased clothing from G.I.L.I., (I have a handbag and the OBI belt but no clothing, I wasn't sure what size to get. I ordered three different sizes, (two in petite and one in regular). I'm 5'6" and sometimes can do either. I am so disappointed. First of all, the material is very very heavy and kind of stiff so it doesn't conform well to your body. Second, the material puckers in the hip area where they sewed the leather into the seam making the hip area extend out. Even in the one that was too small for me every place else, the hip area was huge. Now I need to send all three back and because they are so heavy, the shipping charges will be hefty. I wish they had mentioned on air, the heft of this material . . . definitely not flattering. I will not be ordering clothes from G.I.L.I. again. I do love my obi belt and my leather handbag so I'll stick to accessories.
