September 2, 2013 - Love this dress - got the blue one, really accentuates my shape nicely =) Super comfy, too. I'd recommend it to anyone.
September 1, 2013 - Gorgeous! I bought the red one and I absolutely adore it. Get lots of great comments on it too. I'm a 34B and the small fits me with a bit of room to spare. The cutout in the back is perfectly placed to be flattering but not show any bra straps. The length isn't too short and it's thick enough fabric that you don't need a slip underneath. It has little pockets which are great. You wouldn't want to sit on any white couches though - the colour does rub off a bit (my fingernails went orange when wearing this and the tissue I had in the pocket was stained too) and when washing it by hand the water in the sink does get pretty vibrant. This might get better after the first wash or two. But in summary I am completely in love with this dress, and like the other reviewer I am really seriously considering buying the blue one as well! As soon as there's a free international shipping deal I will grab it. Although the website doesn't mention this, the dress is made by Mata Traders, which is an organization working to transform communities by empowering women. I already had another Mata dress that I love, but this one is even better. Highly recommend this product.
April 1, 2013 - I love this dress! I ordered the red one. It looks exactly like on the picture and is a very comfortable fit. The fabric feels great, too. I'm seriously thinking about ordering the blue one, too. :-)
