"I'm glad I went ahead and bought this dress, even though maxi's are not usually my best friend. I'm 5'3, 34A, around 116lbs, pear-shaped. This dress was SUPER flattering, and looks best with heels.
Pros - slimming, light cotton top, swishy skirt. Fitted at natural waist, skirt fabric hides a little belly. Cons - a tad long for petite girls, but nothing a pair of heels won't fix.
As the other reviewer mentioned, the dress is made up of 2 fabrics. I did not find the bottom half to be as clingy as cotton would be, so I appreciated the looser fabric. The top looks nice and fitted without showing all of your bad spots. Waist band hit right at the natural waist line, emphasizing that area reather than the hips. Not formfitting. I wish they had more colors, I'd buy more! I'll definitely get good use out of this dress, and you can't beat a sale price."

Review 3 for Reformed By The Reformation Azalea Knit Maxi Dress
"I like this dress but still indecisive whether I want to keep it. I bought the XS (I'm 5'3" and about 100lbs). Trying to put the back zipper up was a hassle without help. I was afraid I was going to rip the dress when trying it on. I think this can work well with different outfits. The tops feels more cotton than spandex... which works in the summer, but it's looser than I thought. And the bottom looks like it's polyester and unfortunately is not a good thing. But it's pretty cool to wear with high heels, and maybe some tights (with or without because the slits aren't that exposing).
I haven't wore it out, but I recommend it if your style is edgy.
BTW some threads were coming out, but they weren't a part of the stitching, seems like it was manufactured then shipped out."
