March 17, 2015 - I wear a size 14 and the XL just barely fit me. It is tight in the arms but the bust is almost too big. It's a great price on sale but I was hoping for looser, all cotton sleeves. I am 5'8"
March 2, 2015 - I have loved every other organic cotton dress I have bought through Greater Good, but the rutching on this dress was flawed & uneven so the dress hitched up at an odd angle and did not look good. Very nice otherwise, but this went back.
December 26, 2014 - I got the purple one awhile ago, and I liked it so much, I got the blue one (it is brighter than the picture). Thinking about getting the other colors. It doesn't wrinkle, it drapes nicely, and it's very flattering. The fabric is light enough to wear year round, but substantial enough that it isn't flimsy or see-through. It's dressy enough for work, but super comfortable. If it's available long enough, I'll probably wind up getting every color!
November 28, 2014 - I am 5"2 and 42" bust, I got XL in plum, and it fits lovely, the rouching at bust is perfect, with perfect amount of cleavage--verrry practical dress!!
November 12, 2014 - Sizing was kind of confusing - I'm a 34B, and because of that ordered the XL, which said it had a chest measurement of 34. Had to exchange it for a M, which is perfect. I'm usually a size 6 in dresses, for reference.
