Rated 5 out of 5 by Meowmom flattering dress
I bought the blue dress and it looks really nice on. The lining smoothes down my tummy and it (the lining) stays put. it's comfortable, too. I just have to figure out how to dress it up.
Rated 4 out of 5 by rozy69 LONG!!! FOR SHORT PEOPLE
I GOT THIS IN A SIZE L...AND I'M FULL BUST...I'M 5'1" SO IT DOES DRAG BUT I CAN CUT IT OR TAKE IT TO THE CLEANERS TO HAVE IT HEM PROFESSIONALLY. THE UNDER GARMENT THAT IS BUILT IN IS TIGHT...I THINK I WILL LEAVE IN INSIDE THO AND NOT CUT IT OUT.
Rated 5 out of 5 by dooneycrazy123 Wonderful Fit
I have this dress in 3 colors..I wear an XL and it fits perfectly!! The shaper inside the dress is genius..Finally,a maxi dress that doesn't need a slip or any additional undergarments...I look smooth and feel confident.. I have had no problem with the shaper riding up..Thanks for no more wiggle no more jiggle!!!

Love the material - great shaper- I know I will be wearing this a lot when the weather warms.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Berdie1970 Liked the length, but
I purchased this dress in black some months ago and I like the length, however, the shaper just doesn't stay in place. Not sure if it needs more spandex or if it were longer, if that would help with the placement. I read another customer's review who said they would cut it out, I may do the same thing. I wear the dress with a nice blue jacket and scarf to pull it all together.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Heavy and Frumpy
I hate to say it but I have yet to have a piece from Women with Control that I actually have enjoyed and worn more than once. This dress - the positive: beautiful color saturation. The negative: heavy, oddly cut, on the body it looks as though I am going out in my night gown.
Rated 2 out of 5 by KippyK3 Nice but...
It did nothing for my figure. I ordered this before it was on sale and before I discovered the (click here) size charts. I ordered the small, which fit nice in the bust (36C) and the length was perfect, but it just hung on me. It is cut straight with no shape at all! I needed to find an outfit quickly and didn't have time to reorder an XS and wait. However, the fabric is really nice, the liner felt good, and did not ride up at all...maybe because the dress was a little too big? Navy color is great. Versatile. I would only recommend this dress if you are curvy. It's a decent price now, for what you get.
Rated 2 out of 5 by 08boys not the best purchase ever
I did not like the way it fit made ne look fat and did not flatter at all. I sent it back.
Rated 3 out of 5 by LoveItAll Undecided
I ordered both colors. The red is a true red and the blue is more of a gray blue, not as bright as I had hoped. I was worried about the length since I'm not quite 5'4", it's not an issue.
Sent back the blue, undecided about the red. Not sure the shaper shapes anything, concerned it might ride up.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Cyn R Cute, but the shaper rides up
I am a size 12 and ordered the Medium. The fit is nice. True to size, however, The 'control shaper" rides up providing no control. It is a bit annoying. The dress material is kind of heavy but is very cute. If you don't want to keep tugging on the shaper to keep it down, I suggest cutting it off which is likely what I will do if I don't return it. Ive only worn this in the house and after walking around for 5min I began tugging to keep the shaper in place. Can't imagine going through my entire day like that. It looks nice on and I like the waist detail. Would be great with a jacket for year round wear. Can be dressed up or down. I have the navy which is elegant looking. Add pearls & a jean jacket. hmmmm. I have mixed feelings about keeping because I purchased for the built in shaping.

Beautiful maxi dress but runs big with sizing. I wear an extra large and ordered my normal size XL. It arrived I tried it on and wow it was just to big so sorry back it goes.
Rated 5 out of 5 by karradiane Very Pleased
I am so glad I didn't pay attention to any of the lukewarm reviews. The idea of having a built in shaper liner was a bit of a concern to me, but when my dress arrived today in the coconut brown color, I tried it on and was thrilled with the dress, the shaper, the color, and the fit. In fact, I liked the dress so much, I just ordered the exact same dress in red and in navy blue. I ordered the XL and it fit perfectly. I am full-breasted, and the fit at the bust line was flattering and just right. I'll be wearing these dresses with shrugs, denim jackets and sweaters depending on the occasion. Perfect for work, an evening out, or a casual get together. So very pleased.
