    Comments about Jessica London Pleated Empire Dress:

    This is a wonderful dress. My husband loves it on me, so that is a plus. The material is very classy, and the design is also. It is lined. I have had more compliments while wearing this dress than anything I have ever owned, I think. I am 5'9" and find the length perfect. If you are much shorter, you may need to have it hemmed. It is sleeveless, which I am not a fan of. Are any larger ladies really happy about sleeveless dresses? You could probably find a lace shrug to help with that, but I have actually felt so good in this dress, I am wearing it as it.

      Comments about Jessica London Pleated Empire Dress:

      I bought this for a summer wedding in Costa Rica and thought it would be most appropriate. It was a great disappointment when it arrived. The skirt portion of it was gathered at the waist (didn't appear that way in the photo) which added too much and the pleats in the top did not lay flat (they were not stitched down), which again added bulk to the dress and to the appearance. It really was too bad because the fabric was really pretty and it would have been fantastic at a tropical wedding.

      Ordered this dress for a special occasion coming up next month. It's a Mother/Daughter Tea at my Church so it will be perfect. The colors, style, look and flow was just as I thought it would be looking at the picture. It made me feel "like a woman" when I tried it on. LOL. My only regret is that I did not get a size larger. It is a little snug across the breast and around my "muffin top" but that is my fault. I didn't want to pay that extra $10 for a size larger. With my "good" bra and my Spanx(LOL), it will be just right.

        This is a beautiful dress. I bought it to wear to a special event and it was perfect. I wore the shrug I bought with it and it was a great look. Paired it with a cute pair of red shoes and it was a great dressy outfit but it could also be a casual dress with a pair of sandals. My only complaint is that it is a back zip and living alone I had to figure out a way to zip it but once I did, it fit beautifully. I also love the fact that it is lined so no need for a slip and that it has pockets - a rarity in women's clothing.

                This dress is just OK. Those pleats cause a distortion of the bust. It's a cute dress. But the fabric is rather cheap. Colors are nice. You could wear this dress to church, to work under a blazer, or pretty much anywhere.

                        Love this dress. Reviews said it was short, it is, but that works great for me being 5'4. They say it is small in the armpits, it is, but again works great for me I didn't have to take it up my bra was already concealed. I haven't wore it yet I'm saving it for an occasion I have coming up. But I can't wait.

                          I bought this dress for a family wedding next spring and am so glad I did. This dress is more beautiful in person. It's on trend with with the placement of the of the flower/leaf pattern and is figure flattering--it hides a large belly and creates a waist. However, I am 5'4" so it is a little too long. I plan on having it hemmed to a tea length which I think will create a vintage air and emphasize the pattern. As for my arm issues I am going to wear a sheer white jacket sort of thing. I find that the shrugs are not dressy enough for this dress given the material of both. Pair this with heels (kitten heels for a fifties throw back) or the chunky/stable ankle strap heels sold on this site and you are the definition of STYLE**. Another big plus for me is that I got this dress when it was marked down--dress and heels for much less than $100 = great deal! (Yes the lining is true to the size of the dress and you could get away without wearing a slip w/the correct undergarments making this dress even more comfortable and cool in the heat of summer)

                          Delivery was prompt. Item arrived fine with fairly good packing.

                            My most favorite part of this dress is that it has a full lining underneath. You don't need to worry about a slip or anything clinging!!

                                Looking forward to vacation, when at the end of the day I plan to change out of a bathing suit and into a pretty dress. This dress can be gussied up with summer jewelry in white or turquoise, but it looks nice on its own. Soft and comfortable with pockets, too!

                                  Bought for my mom; she loves it. She added a white short-sleeved sweater, aqua shoes/bag and white jewelry. It was lovely!!

                                            I bought this for a summer wedding and I love it. This is one of the first dresses where the only tailoring it needs is hemming. I'm 5'2" tall and a size 24. The armholes and neckline fit perfectly and I absolutely love that it's dressy with pockets

                                            When I tried it on my husband immediately complimented me on it. Same thing at the tailors. When I came out of the dressing room she comment how Pretty this dress is. If you need something to make you feel pretty and special this summer, I highly recomment this dress!

                                              I love this dress, I would prefer that it had a deeper neckline, or v-neck, but the jewel is nice. I'm planning on wearing this to a wedding.

                                                  I really love this dress and was pleasantly surprised however it really needs a good 3-5 inches more length to be a proper maxi dress
