Could have been great!
My measurements are the same as the model's and the S fits me quite nicely. There are a couple of things that would have made this a 5-star: the exposed zipper on the back is like most exposed zippers, they don't follow the curve of your body very well...so, with this dress, you get the upper back sticking out a bit. I wish the fabric weren't rayon - especially in white, it doesn't live up to a $500 dress. In general, surprised about the quality - the exposed zipper's seams are a bit rough.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Men love it
MM6 does some amazing stuff (Fall '11) but $535 retail for this material was surprising (and not in a good way). The chest on the XS was very restrictive compared to usual, and not even with a bra involved...I sized up to S and decided to live with the loose waist on the S. It's better that way actually, looks less tarty. And lastly the color - in person it looks mustard-y, not pale taupe as in photos (which I wanted). It's hard to find a taupe that's just right. :( But, $160.50 is a no-brainer, esp. as the men in your life will have a hard time not ogling...

Best dress purchase of season
Can't believe this was 70% off! This is a bombshell dress that looks so awesome on. Edgy, sexy, not at all sugary-sweet like RT could be. Very designerish and at the same time extremely easy to wear, just pull over head and head out in peep-toe boots.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Great fit; item quality concerning
At first glance this may bring frumpy window drapes to mind - the fit saves it. However, it is unclear whether the item will hold up for more than one wearing. Similar to another reviewer, the dress I received had its boning poking out and jabbing at me. Also, the fabric arrived ripped near the zipper. Reminiscent of outlet condition, at the current discount level this is harder to stomach, never mind that it's extremely uncomfortable (like being needled) when worn. Even with repair, not sure the fabric is robust enough for the boning to keep its shape, even if it hadn't come with the damage to this particular item that previous shoppers had done. I love that the XS fits like a dream (many dresses gape at the waist), though.

Wanted to like these
I wanted to like these. It's been too hot to wear high-heel sandals and the dressy-ish outfits that would go with those - I've spent the entire months of June and July in casual shorts and plain denim minis, and really wanted a 'flatform', dressed-down shoe for days I don't feel like flip-flops. These, like another reviewer said, don't really strike you as $225 MSRP. I like the bands and where they're positioned, but aside from that the material feels wrong for the price. And, I just feel 'cheap' standing in these with tank + shorts on. Switching to a fancier outfit doesn't help either.

Sienna color feels 'off' in person
Love great majority of T by AW - really low price points considering the quality of this diffusion line, too, Wanted to love this tank - but the color Sienna is very orange-y in person. "Yuck" sounds really harsh but that was my first thought when un-wrapping this. *sigh*

Great look, less-than-worthwhile fabric
Was really looking forward to this for its monochrome, length and summer-y feel. Did not care for the fabric - would have appreciated cotton, light-weight wool/cashmere, or even linen - something other than rayon (which I feel has a cheaper 'hand' to it). I wear XS in A.L.C. but found this to be a lot more restrictive on a 24" waist, and unflattering, counter to the casual cool that I would have liked this to project.

Not as sleek in person
Looks much sleeker/ "citified" in the pic. Can't be a body-type thing as my measurements match the model's. In person - it feels a bit too sweat-pants-y (Britney circa her 'Juicy' years).

Conservative or sexy?
It feels as though the dress can't make up its mind... On me, the neckline fits more like a short "mock" neck rather than a crew, lending it a bit of a stuffy air...otherwise the shadow stripes and the bodycon fit are eye-catching. Perhaps the neckline would fall lower if I sized up from XS; but then the waist wouldn't be fitted...
