Wonderful fabric but not for me
I guess I was so excited that there was finally a wool dress that I didn't read the description carefully enough. It is a "low bulk athletic fit", basically snug. While in dresses I usually wear around a 12, I go with chest measurements for sizing (I like around 41in for it to fit but not pull). Since the in Woolly shirts chest measurements, this means an XXL, that's what I ordered.
I hoped that in sizing up, it would not be as fitted as the model. Nope. Still very snug all over but not as bad as it could have been since the liner does help smooth things out. The liner is only attached at the top of the dress so it could have the potential to twist but at the same time if it was attached that would defeat the purpose I think. I will say that the dress did stretch and the fabric was lovely and soft.
I really wouldn't be comfortable wearing this in public without something over it and by that point, wearing 3 layers defeats the point of a sleeveless dress. So unfortunately, this is going back.
I wish that product measurements were provided.
