WHAT'S NEW IN KATE'S CLOSET
The fabric is silky soft and is draped beautifully. Often jersey dresses cling in unflattering places and highlight areas that I’m self conscious of. But this one does not. It is comfortable. The V is not too deep and doesn’t slip or flash my chest. (I’m small busted so this is often an issue with dresses and tops for me.) The dress also doesn’t look like a maternity dress.
I decided that the fuchsia color was not the most flattering on my pale skin. I returned the fuchsia color and ordered the green and blue from Seraphine’s website (Amazon didn’t have those colors at the time.) The Amazon.com return was simple and quick.
I received the green and blue dresses in about a week from Seraphine. The fit, fabric, etc. was identical to the fuchsia one. I ultimately returned both dresses because of the length. I’m 5’10” and they were just too short for my comfort level, especially in the back.
Seraphine returns were simple, but took a little longer than Amazon. Seraphine provides a return label with the dress so all you have to do is put the dress back in the package, stick the new label on and mail it.
Sizing is based on bust measurement, but I think there is a lot of flexibility in sizing because of the jersey fabric and cut of the dress.
Overall impression: flattering, comfortable dress, but not a great value (almost $100 for a short jersey dress) and too short for me.
