The material is comfortable and the dress is the perfect oversized fit. I normally wear a medium in Tradlands and I probably could have bought a small. I am 5'6" 160 lbs. I got many compliments on this dress when I wore it!
The feel of the dress is so nice and feels good on my skin. I am usually a size Medium (size 8-10) and got a small in this dress. It fits good in my shoulders and arms and of course the rest of the dress is very oversized and comfortable. I'm only 5'2 and the dress is a bit too long and oversized on me which I fix with a belt. Overall I'm glad to have this piece in my closet but I think I'd like a less oversized silhouette in the middle and shorter in length for us short gals.
I LOVE this dress. Comfy, cozy and according to my kid - I look HIP! Earlier this year I Marie Kondo'd my closets/garage/kitchen. Over the holidays I did my closet. In planning my new capsule wardrobe for work - I ran across several people I follow on Instagram with great style that always had on a piece or two from Tradlands. Currently I am patiently waiting for my Birch colored cardigan to arrive ...I am definitely a new Tradlands lover.
I am beyond pleased with this purchase. The fabric is heavenly & so soft! I love the oversized fit, and while I definitely would’ve been fine with the L, I’m also fine with the XL being even slightly more roomy. This is a dress that I know I’ll be wearing quite a lot. The style is timeless, and it’s definitely something I can wear in at least 3 of the 4 seasons in Western Pennsylvania. It’s something I can wear to work (I’m a teacher) wear around the house, and wear out to dinner, the theater or to church. I plan to add my Shelter Cardi with it when I wear it to teach in tomorrow. (Fun fact: I teach high school, and I’ve been complimented more than once by students on my Tradlands pieces.) All-in-all, a wonderful purchase.
I bought it as an all rounder dress, and it hasn't disappointed. The fabrication is light enough for summer , but can be layered for a great autumn/spring piece. The sizing is generous, I am a size AU 16//US12 with a F cup, and the L size is enough for me.
