Horrible
I waited a long time for this to go on sale- really loved it in the picture. But, this is the worst fitting dress I've ever tried on. It is extremely low cut in the front, showing part of bra, and on the sides it is so low cut it is BELOW my bra ! Worst of all, it is HUGE. I'm 36C, 5'4", about 135 lbs and a medium was huge on me. I tried to pull it in to see what a smaller size would look like, but it is a straight cut dress so the small would still look very sloppy, as I was gripping about 3" of material of both sides of my body to imagine a smaller size and it was still a sloppy looking dress. It is quite a lot longer than pictured which I didn't like. The flounce hem is cute, but in areas where the flounce hem curls it shows the back of the fabric ! Terrible ! I'm so disappointed it wasn't the dress I waited so many months to get. It really is cut horribly- no shape at all and so low cut on sides and front- there is no way to alter this and make it work.

Disappointed all the way around
I have been eyeing this for a long time, but... like other reviewers, it is tight through the hips and stomach even though I ordered a size up. 2 sizes up would be too loose in the top. The material is a big disappointment also, and seems like a silk and velvet mixture if there even is such a thing ! I didn't like the feel or look of it at all- thin velvet feeling a little bit. And the one thing I was sure I'd like - the ruffle bottom, was also a disappointment. I am all for ruffles and frills and girlie hems, which is why I liked this dress in the picture, but when walking in it, it just seems to look odd and like silk odd feathers bopping around rather than a cute girlie bottom. I've never left a 2 stars review for anything, but that fabric is horrible and all around it was a disappointment and odd fit. I wear Marc Jacobs in size 8 and got this in a size 10, and it was snug in hips and stomach. I'm 36C about 130-135 lbs. I would not recommend this.

Great pink color
This is my first J. Brand purchase so I am unfamiliar with sizing, although in Hudson I wear a 29 and I got these light pink J. Brand shorts in a 29 which are a little loose. Waiting on size 28 to arrive to see if that is too tightt. 4 stars because... I am very disappointed with the quality, as usually the nicer brands such as Hudson are so soft and have elastane or spandex- these did not, and they are very plain pockets, and quite thin material. I would not have paid the price if it weren't for the color being absolutely fantastic - more of a medium baby pink than a washed out pink as pictured in my opinion, which was a GOOD surprise. I search everywhere for items in baby pink. I am 5' 4", 130-135 lbs. They are not too short- nice length. Just very disappointed in the non-elastane material that to me seems cheap compared to my True Religion, 7 jeans, and Hudsons. If Hudson had these in this great color, I would never keep the J. Brand ones.

My favorite shorts
These are now my favorite shorts I own. I would recommend ordering one size up. I usually wear a 29 tightly or a 30 fairly loosely in True Religion, I am kind of in between sizes, but for these shorts I had to get a size 31. The size 30 were tight in my legs and across hips, and they did not stretch out after i wore them for an hour or so. The material is very thin which is good, but the legs are definitely straight and the material does not give at all. I have athletic build, muscular legs so that is why I had to order up one size. They are cut straight as opposed to a boyfriend cut short. They are thin denim which is great, and you cannot see through them. They are absolutely adorable on. I like the fit to look a tad looser than shown on the model- they looked so much nicer when I put on the 31 instead of the 30 when I was trying to decide which to keep. Again, they don't stretch, so they won't get loose and that stretched out look after a day of wear.

Order down size
Couldn't be prettier, but order down at least 1 size. You could order down 2 sizes even, in my opinion. The elastic around the chest is not one bit tight, so quite a lot of room to give. I ordered a 6 and I'm 36C, 130 to 135 lbs. I think a 4 would have fit just fine too. The body is really huge- it sticks out in the front a lot, and therefore from the side you look HUGE, but i tucked it in and I love it tucked in- gives it a blouson look. I may even have elastic banding sewn on the bottom. But it's a beautiful shirt any which way. I washed it in a laundry bag on hand wash cycle and air dried, and it washed nicely. I never dry clean anything.

Love everything about it
I am a 36C and about 130-135 lbs, and got size Small and it fits great. The reviews said the band was tight so I also ordered a medium, but I didn't feel that the small band was uncomfortably tight so I kept the small in order to have a tad smaller body of dress. I would not recommend ordering up one size due to the band. The material is so soft and the cut is absolutely darling. I bought to wear as a top/ dress, not as a cover-up. A little short to wear as a regular dress at age 39, instead of using as a cover-up, so I'm wearing with leggings. The material is not swimsuit-looking at all, so you can definitely wear it as a regular top or dress. Very soft, very pretty, love the side pockets- couldn't be better.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Tighter than typical Juicy smock dress
Very cute detail and is NOT too heavy of a terry dress with the straps and detail added as some terry dresses can be. Does not make you look bulky in the chest at all, so I was happy with that. I have size small in the typical Juicy terry smocked dress with no detail at the chest - ones I bought a couple years ago, and this dress is definitely much tighter in the chest than my no-detail ones. I am a 36C about 135 lbs. I recommend ordering 1 size up. My sister is a 34B, about 115 lbs and this dress was also quite tight in her chest in a small. The body of the dress is not much bigger at all in a medium, and the chest is still quite snug, but it doesn't look visibly larger at all in the next size up as far as the body of the dress. Again, I recommend sizing 1 size up.

Not for larger chest
I am 36C, 130 lbs and ordered both a small and a medium. With elastic banding I could've gone with the Small regarding mid body fit, except the top was way too small for my 36C chest, which I figured would happen. The Medium is better for a 36C chest, but didn't fit as nice in the mid body, and I still had to wear a cami under it to cover my chest which mostly was exposed. The cups are good at covering the SIDE of your chest, but not so much for covering the FRONT as much as I'd hoped. Wearing a cami underneath to cover chest looked tacky in the back due to the open back design. Without the cami, too much chest showing and my bra was not hidden at all in the back. Unfortunately, I couldn't get it to work for me. If you are smaller chested like the model and can wear only bra cups with tape, it will work for you. Color exactly as expected. The elastic banding on the back allows you to fit a smaller size mid body, but doesn't look sloppy in the next size up
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Very cute and love style
Unfortunately, this dress just didn't work for me. I waited for months for it to go on sale, but unfortunately the bottom of the dress is more of a straight fit and I couldn't pull it off with my more athletic muscular legs and thighs. I absolutely love the style with the draping and the whimsical print, but with a loose drapey top and a straight bottom, I looked like a pumpkin on top and like I was wearing a dress too small for me on the bottom. The next size up would be too large on top in order for me to get one that fit better on the bottom, so I regretfully returned. I recommend sizing down one size, as the top is big. I am a 36 C, 135 lbs, and the size Small is a bit loose on the upper half of the dress for me. If you are more of a thin extremity framed person, though, this would be absolutely adorable on you. Marc Jabos is the best and I never give any of his products less than 5 stars ! Had to 4 star this one just because the bottom is not proportional to top.

Runs big
My sister wears size 28 in Hudson jeans, but she received these chinos today in size 28 and they are huge and fall down to below butt if not held up, so order down at least 1 size smaller than you wear in Hudson jeans. Otherwise, very soft and nice material and definitely recommend.
