Cropped
I purchased 2 Joanna August items, both in size L. The Holly Dress fit perfectly, and although this Sonya top technically fit, it was very cropped. I figure that piece of information may be helpful to those thinking about buying it. I suppose it could work nicely with the high waisted skirt its shown with, but certainly not with mid-rise pants or a skirt. Cute though.

Great Quality
This dress is great. I have a larger bust (36D) and I was concerned about the wrap style being appropriate. It's great. Further, the quality of this dress, fabric and construction, is far better than its $250 price point. Well done. All around great dress.

No curves allowed!
So disappointing. The dress fit on my lower half but was ridiculously small across the bust. I felt like I was trying to fit into something made for a child! Granted, I am a (perky) C++ and curvy, but it was a strange cut since it fit fine around the hips and cinched-in around the waist with plenty of drape. This would not fit properly across the bust unless you are an A-cup, maybe a small B, or very pear shaped.

Gorgeous color, fit not so great
I was drawn to the color immediately and ordered this dress for a spring wedding. Unfortunately, the dress was unflattering. I realize this is not meant to be a fitted dress, but I felt a bit frumpy in it so it had to go back.

Beautiful, but size up!
This is a lovely dress, very nice material. I usually wear a small, but it definitely fit like an XS, the top is tiny and pretty low cut. Will try ordering in a Medium.

Beautiful, Runs Small
I usual wear a 4/6 in dresses (5 feet 8 inches tall, 135lbs, 32DD). The 4 was too small - I could zip it up, but it required a lot of work. There is built in support which is great. The cut of the dress is beautiful and I love the versatility of the panels/straps.

Good quality
I purchase White/Ivory color. The color actually darker than I expected. On my screen it looks pure white but it more like Ivory color. Good quality!! It make me look a bit fatter than I am..I guess I have to loss my weight fro big event!! other than that everything is perfect!! (Price, design, Quality)

perfect little wrap skirt
This skirt is really long & needs to be hemmed. The wrap part is a little annoying & hard to align perfectly. The material is very delicate & I have noticed a few strings/pulls in the fabric. The material is very pretty, flattering and dressy. I love the pink/blush color & it looks great with a crop top.

Wanted to love it
I really wanted to love this but the skirt is probably made for a giant. For reference I am 5'5" and 115lbs and got a small. The skirt was ridiculously long. Like a foot past my feet and I even had it tied on my natural waist. I probably could have gotten it hemmed but I didn't want to.

Not impressed
This dress looks beautiful on the hanger and it actually looks nice on BUT there's a slit where the dress comes together that will literally show your underwear if you don't have it fixed. Also the halter top part of it is very low which is not appropriate for a bridesmaid dress. It needed a lot of work and If I would have had the time to search for a different dress I would have returned this dress. Not a keeper.

Only if you're stick thin
This dress is really pretty and the convertible feature is great and all, but you have to be VERY thin to wear this. I usually wear a 4 or a 6, and couldn't breathe in either size in this dress. I ordered up to an 8, but it wasn't any wider...just taller. Like most Joanna August dresses, you need to be about 6 feet tall and thin as a rail to look good in this.

Horrible
This dress is terrible and completely unflattering. The cut is totally weird, and made me look flat as a board even with a push up bra on. Don't buy!

A lot of chest
I shouldn't be surprised, but this fit me (on top) much like it fits the model, and for me that's just too much (flat) chest. I didn't think that it would be a problem, but it just wasn't flattering. I'd imagine someone with larger bust would not be comfortable in this. It's a pretty color and well made, I just couldn't get past the way the top fit.

Lovely but long
The dress has a great fit and it's beautifully executed but it is very long so for 5'7" + high heels I will still have to cut it of a few inches before I could comfortably wear it. Colour wise it's always more grey than in the pictures but still lovely.

Very pretty dress
Very pretty dress, nice quality, good cutting, just the chest area doesn't fit me too well.
