This is a beautiful dress. It is nicely cut, the fabric is substantial (though with a beautiful drape), and the pattern is interesting. It is conservative enough for work, but interesting enough to wear out. Basically, a perfect dress.
The guy I am dating specifically complimented me on this dress (which is the first time he's commented on my clothing), which made me feel very happy, indeed. The fabric is perfect. The dress fit well everywhere except the shoulders (which were a bit too big) and bust (which was a bit too small on me) - so I had to tug it down periodically. Since I am rather large-busted, I had to wear a bra that shows with the low-cut back, but I wore my hair down to remedy this... :-)
love this dress: is flattering, elegant and very easy to wear. I got a million compliments
I love this fabric! It is heavy and drapes beautifully. This makes it excellent for Fall and Winter events with tights and boots. I hope they bring back more colors!
Pretty dress but had to return
Material was much thicker than I thought and the overall fit did not work with my curvy figure. The wrap dresses are what work for me and I own several.
Hi there! Our Luxe Jacquard fabric is much thicker than our Essential Jersey fabric and is meant to fit like shape-wear. So glad to hear the Perfect Wraps work out for you. Please feel free to reach out to us if you ever have any questions!
A new favorite
I have a lot of Leota dresses, and the Luxe Jaquard fabrics are my favorites. This dress is a lovely color, comfortable and flattering, true to size. It's a little longer than the black Circle dress. Have worn it a handful of times now and gotten compliments every time.
Look like a modern "New Look" fashion plate, feel like you're in loungewear
This dress, as well as its shorter-sleeved cousin, will make you feel as glamorous as a 1950s fashion plate. Channel Audrey in Funny Face and wear with ballet flats, or modernize with biker-styled ankle boots and a leather jacket. In any case, you'll be super comfortable, plus, if you wear to dinner, it is stretchy, so it will accommodate any indulgences while remaining supremely comfortable. Can accommodate slender or curvy figures -- order for your bust/waist... very forgiving in hips.
Easy to wear and tons of compliments
I bought this dress in the Aubergine color that is no longer available. I wish I could start the review with my favorite thing, but literally every detail about this dress would qualify as my favorite. The neckline is fantastic and the scoop in the back makes it fun but still wearable with a bra. The fabric has a nice structure to it (unlike two other Leota dresses I tried and returned that I felt were too thin), and is very forgiving while still being flowy. It is super easy to style differently--like it looks great with/without a belt or scarf, you can make it plain or jazz it up with jewelry. Wear it with heels or flats. Overall it's a great foundation for whatever event you have, day or night. I get SO MANY COMPLIMENTS on mine it's almost obscene. No kidding, every time I wear it I get at least three people telling me how gorgeous it looks. Wow! What a dress. Pricey but worth it, especially when I started with other less costly dresses and was disappointed. I'm buying more in the other colors like this one!
