Great Dress
Great looking classic dress. Ordered the 6 after researching that the dress fit snugly but its too big. The 4 fits perfectly. I am 5 foot 7 inches and 135 pounds smaller chest dress fits great a bit longer then I would want probably hem about 1 inch so it comes to the knee. Slit is relatively high in the back but this dress is very nice for day or night!

Slimming and chique

My perfect "go to"
True to size, well-made and very consistent from color to color/fabric to fabric (I own more than one). Tailored and classic. Indestructible fabric that travels great. Just tough to put a jacket over. So, more of a summer or warm weather item for me. I consistently wear a 0 or 2 and am average height, and like this is a size 2.

Not great
I don't know why I keep pursuing these dresses as even though the reviews are very promising and the dress looks lovely on the model, the cut really doesn't suit me (I'm curvy and a 34D for reference). I ordered one to two sizes up from my usual size as the previous Jackie O dress I purchased from Black Halo was tiny! I purchased the dress in white which is now sold out and it fits well, however it just isn't very flattering. It is not a great cut and the seams over the bottom at the back look like really bad VPL. The fabric was unexpectedly stretchy and would have made the dress quite comfortable to wear if it wasn't for the unflattering cut. I would return this dress if the returns were not so expensive from Australia. I'm very disappointed as I was hoping to wear this dress to my engagement party

Flattering Dress
Nice looking, versatile dress that's great for work when paired with a blazer. I have a relatively straight frame and purchased my normal size 0, and found the dress to be pretty tight...although not tight enough to exchange for a larger size. Although I have to watch what I eat when wearing this dress, I must say it is very flattering and lays nicely even though it's probably a tad too small. Overall, I'm pleased with the purchase.

Awesome!
This jumpsuit was made for me. The length is amazing. So glad someone finally made an inseam that exceeds 34" Drapes perfectly.

Demure with a Little Edge
Flattering dress. Looks just like the pic including color and sheen. I'm 5'3" and a size 2-4, typically. A size 4 fit well. My waist size and small frame sometimes makes fit difficult. 35-28-35.5. Dresses that identify the waist with belts and such are usually not a good idea on me. While this was a bit tight in the waist, it was still flattering. No real need for spanx to smooth out lumps and bumps. Has just a bit of stretch for comfort. I was worried that the material at the top would not lay right, but it fits just the way it does on the model. Was midi length on me. I altered it to just below my knees, and it's very flattering. Was nice without alterations, though. Price seems a bit high, but with all the dresses out there that look great on the model, and are cheap and poor fitting in person, this one was well worth it (and I got it for 25% off during the Shopbop sale!).

Really strange fit
I ordered a size 2 & a 4, because I have broad shoulders. The 4 fit my shoulders, but.. There's some extra fabric in the belly of the dress that made me look like I was either really flabby or pregnant. It's not visible in the preview photos but now that I look, you can see it on the model in the video from the side when she spins. She's not oddly shaped in her belly, that'd just the dress.

All that I hoped for and less
The construction and fabric are just fine. The lining is cotton and a bit shabby, if you are the kind of shopper who cares about such things, but the real problem for me was of course the fit. I'm an 8 or a 10. I couldn't get this dress on my body. It is nice. And worth every penny of its on-sale price, but watch out for the fit.

Just OK
This dress looks great on the model but it didn't on me. I am 5'2 size zero and A cup. The top was basically sliding off (I would be pulling it up all night) and the slit came up too high. Overall, better options out there in this price range so it went back.

Stunning Summer piece
I was so thrilled to receive this in the mail. My brother-in-law is getting married next month and I have really struggled to find a dress I was excited about. Because of the shape of the dress (and my curvy figure), I decided to size up on this piece. I'm so happy I did because I think my normal size would have been too figure hugging for the occasion. For those who want a truly figure hugging and tight fit, I would order according to your usual size. For reference, I am usually a size 8, 5'6" and 135 #. Most of my curves are in my lower half, so this shape is so flattering. For those with a less than perfect stomach, this dress hides any flaws you may have. The website describes the color as raspberry, which I agree with. It is a bright magenta hue, which is surprising and unexpected for this sophisticated design. Honestly, I feel like a million bucks in this piece. It's dressy and sophisticated and definitely pops. And it's made in America--which is a bonus!
