Sexy chic summer casual
Would have been 5 stars if not ribbed which somewhat lowers the versatility in usage but this curve hugging dress does hold a flattering length to get you between stripy sandals and the flip flop summer. Don't fret over the ribbed fabric. It is soft and non abrasive for those with the summer sensitivity. The neckline is higher than expected, but a plus a the dress is fitted. Would look great on a pregnant bump. A great buy at a good price.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Per basic and good for layering
I am a little biased as this is my 6th modal long sleeve top. I can't live without them in the winter - shielding me from chilly nights in hotel rooms and doubling as a base layer or top during the day. They could be a bit longer in length for my usage, but I keep a healthy supply as most layering base layers play wicked to my sensitive sinter skin. And if I had my say, I wish CK would finally release this one in a Vneck. But when it is good, it is just good. This one never fails. Breathable and prefect almost all year round indoors. Gotta have at least one.

Basic, solid
What the description does not tell you as that the interior of the suit is not the same color as the exterior. I purchased in black and the interior is bright lime green. It mostly should not show, but may a bit on the bust line.I am a black only dresser so using the large splash of color as a challenge. The lines of this suit however are remarkable flattering - the bust is lifted the hips are essentuated but the bum is completely covered. Fabric is surfing grade. Cant wait to get it on a wave of two.

Improved
I had the longer version of this robe and felt old beyond my years. This robe gives just the right amount of cover while maintaining a since of style. As always the CK essentials fabric remains soft and comfortable and will not peel for years --- as long as you wash with other CK ( never wash with towels). Great.

Perfect
I have purchased about 5 of these over the years and adore everything out of the CK essentials line. Soft, breathable fabric that is heavy enough to protect over the chilly nights and cool enough to pop with some tights and make that grassy store run. The split neck is great an avoids that choking feeling when you toss and turn.

Almost a return?
Theoretically, this is a great dress. You can move the waist line low or high. The fabric is heavier than most but the racer back combination is perfect for those going from the air-conditioned indoors to summer heat. The elongating length has a whimsical movement and pairs perfectly with your summer casual sweaters and flats. So a perfect dress for many. It is almost a return for me as the waistband tie is a bit unpredictable and I like to keep an emperor waist with my summer maxis. I also straddle between designer sizes 4 and 6. I ordered this dress in a medium and the bottom just just just did not hug too much. Also the delicate heavy fabric is likely to peel this summer. I am on the border but leaning towards giving it a real chance in the Hong Kong heat.

Throw it on or dress it up
Nice easy throw on for the summer essential wardrobe. The fabric is hand wash only which throws a bit of a wrinkle in the care free summer feel. The fabric was positively heavier than expected, no slip needed. The dress is more straight than A-lined which does not come out in the photo, but does have enough of an A to hide any unwanted lumps and bumps and get you confidently through a day. The asymmetrical thick hem line at the bottom may shorten the legs a bit too much for those under 5.5ft, but perfectly flattering for those who are not.

Trade in those Plastics
Great price for a summer wardrobe essential and a sleek alternative to the common summer rubbers. These patents offer just a hint of shine and enough swagger to rock with your favorite summer dress. No advertising labels needed. They are just great shoes. Bought in black. I am a 39 and the 9 fit just to the edge. Would not recommend going up a size. We all know flip flops are intended to flop but a bit painful when too much so. Great buy. Cant go wrong with anything Yosi

Practical for the Global Nomad
Folding, stylish, comfort. I am a woman constantly on the go. Purchased this handsome essential in black for throwing in the bag for an extra dose of style without the extra baggage.

Nice shape, poor fabric
The first positive is that the style and shape of this jumpsuit is flattering and would be for most body types. The overriding negative, and what prompted me to make my first ever return to shop bop was the quality of the fabric. Flowing, yes, but slightly see through, the seams and edges were unfinished and coming undone on arrival. This particular "made in india" fabric is common place in street markets around the world for less than 30 dollars. Quality was certainly more H&M but certainly not all reflected in the price. Better price point for the item : 50-69 USD, accounting for the scarcity of the particular style. DO NOT BUY until on sale. Trust me.
