Great piece, snug in shoulder/arm
This is a great layering piece, a heavy weight knit that holds it's shape very well. It came out of the bag with the lapels/circle shape looking just like the photo. It will probably stay that way. I am 5'9" and the length is just right in the arms and the back covers the rear. A word of caution to size up if you want more than a thin layer underneath - it is a bit snug in the shoulders and arms. You can still layer but it would have to be a thin layer underneath.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Shorter and tighter than expected
It's a really nice light fabric, good color and price. What you can't tell from the photo is that it is not that long of a sweater - they must have just yanked it down in the photo. The band at the bottom of the sweater is tighter than the body, causing it to ride up and create more of a billowy shape. Not what I was going for. I am 5'9'' and usually a 6-8 US in tops, but I ordered large because I wanted it to be loose and skimming and long. It was not. It's worth it to return and I can probably use it as a layering piece, but I had hoped for something longer that would lay nice without riding up on your pants all day.

Good quality, versatile
Great fit on this - loose but not too loose so that it loses it's shape. Great with jeans and skirts. I'm tall (5'9'') but it still covers my butt (may be too long for shorter ladies). Weave quality and pattern nicer than expected. Good all-around staple.

Unflattering V Seam
Great Fabric, color. It's a more boxy shift style which wouldn't be a problem but for the v-seam across the hips. The fabric bulges out on top of the seam rather than laying flat even though the dress is quite looks - it makes for a very unflattering look. Had to send it back.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Great for ladies with curves
Another hit from the T line - this is probably my 4th purchase and I have not gone wrong yet. I'll agree this one is a bit more formfitted than usual for Mr. Wang but even for a tall curvy lady like me, it is so flattering. It hits and skims in all the right spots, and even though it is tight, you just look amazing in it. Again, it looks so much more expensive than it really is - you cannot get this value for this price in most places. Put a cropped blazer on, and it is good for work, take off the blazer, and it's great for a night out. Love this dress.

Another hit from splendid
Great fabric, as is always the case with Splendid. It is the ultimate casual summer dress - so flattering, cute, and soft. These dresses are always cut complimentary to women's natural curves.. There is a cotton camisole liner inside the dress which is great, except it came pre-attached to the interior of the shoulders and pulled the dress a bit awkwardly on me. Once I detached it, it was perfect. The shirttail hem makes legs look great too. I will get a lot of use out of this - travel, pool, etc.

Doesn't hang well
I really wanted to like this dress -everything about it looked so cool and easy. When it came, I saw one of the spaghetti straps that connects the main part of the dress to the bodice overlay had come detached from the overlay - I could have fixed this myself, but it took me 20 minutes just to lay it out straight and detangle it so I could put it on. Once it was on, sadly it was a disappointment. I think you would have to be an incredibly slim person to get this to hang in that breezy way that it looks on the model. It just hung like a sack, which is a shame as I have had so much success with other T dresses before. Back it went.

More comfy than expected
Super cute, love the DVF print without the logo nightmare some of the designer flip flops can be. You can't see it, but there is a foam layer above the normal flip flop sole that makes these much cushier than I had thought. Cute, and good price to get some style by the pool or beach.

Own in several colors
Love this piece - just so so easy and the price is right. A perfect fit around the hips, and the column shape is very forgiving for those of us who try to avoid excess fabric on the bottom half. Own in black, white. green, etc. One tip - splendid makes a few of these in other colors - make sure you compare fabrics. I got a printed gray one that was a completely different fabric and hung so strangely. No stretch at all. It went back. This basic version though is awesome and is ideal for casual wear.

Amazing color
Have gotten a lot of complements on this already! Sturdy, well-made. And the color is truly stunning and will go a long way to punch up that basic tee, dress or work outfit. I almost gave it 4 stars due to the price - which I think is a bit steep. But the quality is excellent and this is a unique piece no one else will have.
