I love this dress so much! I can't get enough of it. The material is thick enough that it does not cling to the body. I have an hourglass figure but it still skims my body enough to be flattering. It does not fit like a bag the way some shift style dresses do. The material is lovely and soft to the touch. I love wearing this dress with tights and tall boots. Very chic! I felt like a total girl boss walking into work in this outfit. I like one of the other reviewer's suggestions for this same dress to come out with long sleeves for winter. That would be excellent! It would also be nice in black, burgundy and other dark shades like plum. I'm a medium at Reitmans and this was true to size. I'm about 5"2 and this goes slightly past my knees.
