Sleeves are long enough!
Date:January 7, 2014
I bought this in the purple and it's a nice rich grape color. I'm 5'9 and long limbed and I'm happy to report that these sleves are long enough for me! This is very thin fabric which lends itself to layering but that also means that it doesn't really hide anything either. You can kind of rouche it a little bit to help with that if needed though.

Curvy girls need to size up!
Date:January 7, 2014
I'm generally a 4/6. Since other reviews suggesting sizing up, I went with the 6. I have a cury/athletic lower half and I often have issues with snug fitting jeans being hard to get over my calves. These are no exception and while the 6 technically fits, they're a tad sug in the waist. I've had two kids so that just doesn't work...get me? I'm going to try an 8 but definately don't be afraid to order these big!

Nice pants, weird color
Date:January 7, 2014
I would have kept these if the color was better. It's a weird light grey with some raspberry threads mixed in. I have a ton of greens and blues in my wardrobe and I just didn't see these coordinating with much I own. I love that they are lined and a heavy fabric and they are good for curvy girls.

Yoga Pants for the Office
Date:January 7, 2014
When they say fitted through the hip and thigh, they aren't kidding. These fit and feel very much like flare leg yoga pants while apearing to be a trouser. They're insanely comfortable but they aren't going to hide any sins in the upper leg area - and if you are remotely self conscious about that area, you will not like these! I have what I guess you can call an athletic lower half. I hesitated on keeping these because I feel like with the snug fit it's questionable whether they're really a good choice for a conservative professional environment but I think as long as I stick to longer tops with these, I can make them work. Plus, my husband adores the way they look so if nothing else, they can be date night pants. The idea of getting away with wearing something that feels like loungewear to work is pretty appealing too. I'm generally a 4/6 and ordered a 6 and it fits well everywhere but the waist which is a tad loose. I'm 5'9 with long legs so I'm often on the border between neededing a long length pant and the regular length is fine for me when wearing a roughly 3.5 in heel. If you generally wear higher ones, you'll want the longer length. I bought a couple of Ponte blazers towards the end of summer, one of which was black, so I thought that these pants and the black blazer would go together for a suit but the fabric compositions are very different and these pants have a slight sheen my blazers do not.

Great Fit
Date:January 7, 2014
I have a curvy/athletic lower half and it's often tough for me to find pants that are roomy enough in the thigh without being huge in the waist. These are pretty flattering in that respect. I'm a 4/6 and the 6 in these fits my thighs closely but since it falls straight from there, they don't draw extra attention to that area. I bought them in gray which is a pretty medium tone so it goes with virtually everything.

Not flattering
Date:September 8, 2013
I ordered this in an XS and didn't love it. I tried a S in the store and it had the same issue. When it's buttoned, it had a weird peplum-ish fit on me. I even had them cut the temporary stitches in the black flap to make sure that wasn't the issue. This hit me at the widest part of my hip and with that extra flare, it added 10 lbs. I probably could have had this issue altered away but this piece just wasn't nice enough to justify that.

Add lining or lose the pockets
Date:September 8, 2013
I normally wear a size 4, but when I received this I wasn't thrilled with the fit. I tried a 6 in the store before I returned it, just to make sure it wasn't a sizing issue. Neither size really looked good because you can see those ridiculous pockets draw seriously noticeable lines half way down your thighs. It's like paying someone to give you VPL! Who is actually using these ginormous pockets in a pencil skirt anyway? It's not worth the extra $$$$ to get a seamstress to cut them out. They could easily have lined the skirt to take care of this or just not put them in to start with. Completely ruined an otherwise cute item.

Love so much, I bought another
Date:September 8, 2013
I ordered three blazers online and this is the only one I kept. The fit is so flattering, I bought the blue one when I returned the rest of my order to the store. Since it's lined, it should work for 3/4 seasons (just not summer). The patterned lining is great because I have a lot of solid colored tops. It sits equally well buttoned or unbuttoned. If they made more colors, I'd buy more!

Def runs small
Date:September 7, 2013
I was bummed when the size 6 sold out before I placed my order. I'm normally an XS/4 but I thought I could make a 6 work. I took a chance on 8 because it's cheap enough that I wouldn't mind paying for alterations. It actually fits really well. The waist size is perfect and sits where it's supposed to, exposing my whole back.
I'll agree with others that the fit feels a little weird up top. It does come up high into your armpits but it has to since you wouldn't want it gaping open on the sides. For total confidence, you'll want to use some fashion tape with this item though.
I find it surprising that the top isn't huge on me. I'm not even an A cup and while there is a little extra material up there, it fits well enough as is and doesn't look sloppy. With the limited support options, this dress probably isn't going to work so well for you better-endowed girls.
All in all, I'm thrilled with this. I've been trying to find an open-back dress that wasn't a mini and wouldn't set me back $100+!

Great color, ew to the pockets
Date:September 7, 2013
The color is richer than it appears online. I was thrilled with the difference when I received this. I'm typically an XS/4. I ordered a 4 but it's going back. It technically fits but the combo of the pockets plus the slight front pleats are not flattering. They just add bulk in a spot most women don't need it. I may try one size up just to see if maybe it runs small but really this just seems cut for a teenager. You need small hips and a super flat stomach to pull this one off.

I have larger calves from sports and dance. Would these still work on me?

Probably but order at least one size larger than you normally wear. I run and do lots of squats, lunges and the like so I also have trouble with snug fitting pants being too tight in the calves and/or thighs. I'm a 4/6 and ordered a 6 but I'm going to need at least an 8 to make these work.

Is the waist on this dress is elastic?

Does the material in the waist gives alittle? This will determine if I order a size 12 or size 14
Nope, the waist doesn't stretch at all. The only elastic is the shoulder straps.
