Suzi Chin for Maggy Boutique Pleated Jersey Fit & Flare Dress
I bought this dress one size smaller because I had read in a review the material was stretchy. However it was way to small and I should have bought the size I always wear. Disappointed I had to return. I am 5'4 and 126lbs and bought a size 4 when I usually wear a size 6. Hope this helps someone. Oceana is a beautiful color, and I would order again but have run out of time , leaving on vacation.
I love the swing at the hemline and I felt very feminine wearing this dress. I found the zipper, once it got to the waist, to require a little effort getting up and the bustline was a tad too big. Overall, I LOVE this dress, so I will get the bustline altered and wear it to every wedding and special occasion this spring and summer. Because it hits me at my knee, I can wear it with heels and flats.
not flattering on me
I'm slim, but all the ruching and pleating and material made me look bigger than I am. I returned it. Pretty color though.
I bought this dress for my parents' 50th Wedding Anniversary. I had some reservations because of the Jersey material, but was very happy with the heavier weight and structure of the dress. I bought the dress in the "Oceana" blue and got a lot of compliments on the "peacock blue" color that is supposed to be very in fashion now. The dress draped nicely and was very flattering on my "curvy" silhoutte. I wore it with nude peep toe pumps and gold accessories and it looked very elegant. I love the dress...and so did my husband:)
