Perfect Casual Dress
This is just the perfect dress. Period. The price point is excellent - there are many dresses like this one on Shopbop, but none of them offer such a good quality garment at such a reasonable price point. I own this dress in grey and black and I wear both of them constantly. They are incredibly comfortable and easy to wear to just about any occasion (brunch, movies, day-date, tourist traveling, etc.), but they still manage to look a lot chicer than your typical cotton tank dress. The only "better" tank dress may be the James Perse dresses, but those are SO expensive. With respect to fit, I take an XS and I'm 5'6'', 120 pounds, small-ish frame. I'd say they are a tad bit longer on "real" women than on the models shown, but still above the knee. This is definitely a winner for me!
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Where are the laces???
I get that these shoes are supposed to be fashion forward / futuristic / etc., but the execution fell flat for me. I LOVED the color, but the weird blue "hub cap" in lieu of laces was too bizarre. My friends kept asking when I was going to take that off - they thought it was part of the packaging! The fit is great though - definitely true to size and very comfortable...although not having laces and therefore having to "slip them on" when they're not really constructed for that was awkward and annoying.

So Close!
I loved this tank on the model and was so excited to get it in the mail. My typical style trends toward comfy / cozy and a bit androgynous. The color and fabric were superb, but the fit was not flattering. The neckline was much to high and narrow, giving the tank the look of a T-shirt that has had the sleeves cut off to accommodate a body builder. Also, I felt a bit like it was choking me. It was nearly what I wanted, but just didn't quite cut it.

Perfect Day to Night Dress
I absolutely love this dress. I ordered it in every color - blue, red, white, and black - but ultimately only kept it in the black....despite really wanting it in every color of the rainbow (had to mind my budget!). It's extremely flattering while not being overly sexy or revealing. It's the perfect dress to wear to the office and then add some pumps and statement jewelry for after-work drinks or a date. This is definitely one of the most versatile and attractive dresses I own. With respect to sizing, I am 5'6'' / 120 pounds / small-ish frame and a size 0 fit me perfectly.

Perfect Casual / Cozy Dress
I am obsessed with this dress - almost enough to purchase a second one now that it's on such an incredible sale, just to have a backup. The dress is soft and comfortable, but also just slinky and sexy enough to transition from a casual daytime outing to a dinner date. It is very drapey, so you have to wear something under it - I go for a black lace bandeau "bra" over my normal bra, which looks great. I guess I would say it runs a little big, but then again, they never offered the option of XS. Nonetheless, with the lace bra or some type of camisole under it, the dress fits fine. I love this dress so much - one of my best-ever Shopbop purchases, for sure.

I wanted this to work so badly!
I literally stalked this dress waiting for my size to come back in stock (a S fit perfectly on my frame....5'6'', 120 lbs, small-ish bond structure), and I was absolutely thrilled when I managed to get it (on sale,no less). When it arrived and I tried it on, I loved it.......at least from the front. The fabric is so luxe and it fits the body in a very flattering way without being to tight. It's definitely a work appropriate dress. However, the back is what I was let down by. First, the band of orange is pointless if you have long hair like me - and that was a main selling point of the dress! Second, there is no way to wear any normal bra with this dress. The cut-out in the back is RIGHT where any standard bra hook sits, and since I would be wearing this to work, I'm not down to substitute my normal bra for some bizarre stick-on bra or a bra with a stomach-wrapping attachment. Plus, at this price, I just want it to work. So bummed!

Looks Cheap...
This dress is not flattering. It looks and feels very cheap. Sure, the sale price is very good...but the dress still looks cheaper than the sale price, like something you'd pick up at Forever 21. I appreciate that the material is thick enough to keep the white fabric from being see-through, but it's just trashy looking on. It also runs very small. I definitely needed a size S, but a M might have been better. For reference, I am 5'6'' / 120 pounds / small-ish frame. The other issue with this dress is the bust / neckline area. Being as narrow as it is, it makes your shoulders look abnormally large and gives the overall impression that the dress doesn't fit properly. I can't recommend this garment...
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Not Sophisticated Enough...
While this dress looks great on the model, its translation onto a real-life body wasn't as flattering. The dress is extremely small. While I often wear a 0 / XS in this brand (for reference, I am 5'6'' / 120 pounds / small-ish frame), I definitely needed a size 2...and even still, my boyfriend (who typically thinks the shorter / tighter the better) felt that it was a little too "tarty." In addition, the logistics of a bra are very challenging. If you don't want to go braless, then this may not be the dress for you. None of my bras went without notice...

Like a Potato Sack
I actually hated this romper. It is so unflattering. The sizing is completely off. I ordered a size 1 and could have easily fit two of myself in it (I'm 5'6'' and 120 lbs). I can understand that they wanted to make this somewhat loose so that it works well as a swimsuit cover-up, but this is just extreme. It fit nothing like the romper shown on the model, who actually looks quite stylish. The fabric is also awful. It's much heavier than I would have expected and quite stiff - it might loosen up after some washing, but I'm not sure. This got returned very quickly.
