Rated 5 out of 5 by Fluffyminkles Very Flattering
This dress is done no justice by the photograph so don't be put off.
I am a pear shaped size 14 , ordered the medium and it is a perfect fit. As usual in Kim's clothing the material is soft and easy to wear. I ordered the black and white version and the print in,real life, is sharp and not as blended as the picture suggests.
I would agree with the other reviewers that to go down a size might be appropriate but as I do not wish to accentuate my generous thighs I've
stayed with my usual size.
Being older I prefer to have my upper arms covered so the sleeves cast the die in the choice of this dress.
This dress could be casual or used in a dressier situation. It is an excellent all rounder.
I hope Kim reads and gives more of this same.
I love maxi dresses and would appreciate more with sleeves.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Titianlady Just not for me
I was attracted to this dress mainly because of the sleeves. I have so many of Kim's dresses and I absolutely love them, but I thought this plainer style, especially with the sleeves would be a little bit more casual so nice easy wear without feeling too dressed up. I went for the playful roses and I must say I do love the colours and the pattern, but on my 5'2" frame I felt it overwhelmed me. Also I just felt the plain style needed some sort of detail to break it up, A couple of other reviewers say it looks like a nightie, - maybe a little harsh but I know what you mean! On the plus side, the material is beautiful. At 5'2" I can just about get away with the length.

This is such a flattering style and so nice to have a bit of a sleeve in a maxi dress. Lightweight material but it hangs beautifully and is cool on really hot days. A bargain price compared with some of Kim's other dresses.

I have ordered zebra print in small and it looks great on.
I am 5ft 3, 36F bust and between 40 and 42 hips.
Colours are very vibrant and it is roomy and comfortable to wear.
Length is perfect. I can wear it with flip flops and nothing is drugging on the floor.
This may be the more colourful print of all 5 choices ( think is 5) but I am happy for my summer dress to be more vibrant.

Like the fact that this dress has sleeves, so many Maxi's don't! I ordered Navy floral in size S, the fit & length is good, I am 5' 8" & generally a size 12/14. I love this style of dress as it drapes nicely over the hips hiding all my lumps & bumps in this area. The feature price was good as I think at full price is far to expensive! Just thought I'd like to mention that my wardrobe does vary from size 10s to 16s!! With fashion we are advised to go with our usual size, how can we as they ALL vary so much, even in the same design/brand range.

Rated 3 out of 5 by savvytraveller Looks like a nightie
Lovely fabric,style looked like a nightie.Such a shame that Kims sizes are so strange.I have lots of 3xl dresses and some 2xl but they are by Nina Leonard and Susan Graver.Wish Kim would bring her sizes in line with other designers,I would then buy loads.Returned of course.

This is the first purchase from Kim & co it definitely won't be my last, the dress came without a single crease which really surprized me as other dresses I have brought had creases and needed ironing before I could wear them, I'm a 10/12 high street and I got a small which fits perfect, I got the artfull Leo which is lovely, it hangs nice and the cut out at the back is a nice touch, I'm 5'4" and it comes to my ankles, I,d definitely get more colours really pleased with this dress.

I ordered the black/white version of this maxi dress. I love it and relieved that it is not too long. The colour is fresh and pretty, but neutral enough to be casual and not too dressy. I can team it up with a black cardigan or introduce a new colour. The shape is flattering and the neckline not too low. It is true to size.
