Folk Dance Fit & Flare Dress is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Dress! This dress is beyond gorgeous! The fabric is thick with out being too bulky and the details are really eye catching. This dress really gives you great shape and makes your waist look tiny, even if it isn'! Love the shape of the neckline too. I love City Chic clothing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what I hoped for I saw this dress online and thought it was beautiful. I'm always skeptical about ordering things online because you can't feel the material and especially with dresses they seem to be hit-or-miss. This dress is ultra flattering. Super well made. So happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE cotton. Beautiful, well made, runs small. This is my first ever City Chic item. The BEAUTIFUL, UNIQUE fabric caught my eye, and I was thrilled to read in the description that it is made from breathable COTTON - THANK YOU! It is really hard to find clothing made from the very best, most breathable fabric of all, cotton, and I don't know why. Synthetic fabrics are miserably hot because they don't breathe, so I totally avoid them. I'm really pleased with the quality, beautiful design, and FLATTERING style of this dress. Love the 3/4 sleeves, FITTED and BELTED waist, and FULL pleated SKIRT which is the PERFECT, PRETTIEST LENGTH i.e. just BELOW the KNEES. I feel like a EUROPEAN PRINCESS in this! From when I first discovered this dress a few weeks ago, up to a few days ago when I ordered it, it nearly sold out completely! Not having ever tried on this brand, I did not know what size would best fit me, but the only sizes left were 14w, 22w, and 24w. I frequently shop Talbots, and wear their size 14w or 1x, but in other brands I am usually a 16w, 18w, and either 1x or 2x. So in this dress, I ordered both the 14w, expecting it to be too small, and the 22w, expecting it to be big and requiring an alterations person to take it in. I received my order today, and found that surprisingly, the 22w is just a little big, not even enough to really notice, so that is the one I will keep. Therefore, I think this dress runs small in comparison to other brands. The neckline, which I would describe as a low-ish oval, is pretty, but just a bit less modest than I am comfortable with, so I tried something I often do to solve that issue - I turned the garment around backwards! I know it sounds crazy, but this way, I've got a higher neckline, and in the v shape that I prefer. The only problem with doing that is the LOVELY PRINCESS SEAMS (another feature that I seek) are only on the front, so the bustline is a bit "poochy" when on my back (but I think I can add a few subtle hand stitches from the inside to smooth that out), and the zippered, v shaped back is not as roomy for the bustline since it does not have the princess seams, but it still looks fine. Thank you, City Chic, for making such an EXCEPTIONALLY LOVELY DRESS! And I think you would be very wise to re-stock the full size range since it sold so fast - I'll bet you can sell many, many more if you can get them.
