Fitted, casual
This dress is a soft cotton jersey with a very casual appearance. Best worn on weekends in the summer. It is fitted, as shown on the model, even in a L. I am 5'10" and it is very very short. With such a casual appearance, its a strange combo...sexy and casual, definitely needs its own destination! Overall, it was a great deal on sale and thick, non-see-through material, so I kept it.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

so sexy and well fitted
The other reviewers seemed to hate this item, but I absolutely LOVE it. First, its a T by Alexander Wang item...which means its going to be a jersey material, so don't be surprised when it has a comfortable t-shirt feel (not a super expensive finish). It is super soft jersey panels over a full-body mesh dress. The fit is a bit larger (not skin tight) than I expected, but with the sexy see-through panels, I expect it was designed that way. Also ladies, it has HUGE sheer panels...I think its clear in the photos, other reviewers seemed surprised by this. It is so well fitted, not too tight, super soft and comfortable. No need for spanx...in fact, no need for any underwear. The white looks great with tan skin. I will probably alter it to knee length as it hits a the large part of my calves. But still my best purchase in a long time!
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Fitted, Not too thin
James Perse dresses have varying fits, and this one is definitely very fitted, as shown on the model. I wear a size 8/10, and ordered a 4 and it fits perfectly (I can often wear a 3 in this brand). Even in the grey color, it is not too revealing because the fabric is thicker (not see-through), however, expect to wear minimal underwear, as it is smooth and tight across the back. I kept the dress because on sale it was an amazing deal. also great as a tunic over jeans or leggings.
