"I was so excited to receive this dress and while it is cute it's just not what I expected. It's a tad uncomfortable but the part that really keeps me from wearing it most days is the opening between the buttons that flashes your underwear! And trying to wear anything under like a slip makes the dress appear even more bulky."
"I love smocked dresses. They are just so casual and comfortable. So the best thing about this one is that it's a bit dressier. I love the buttons! However, you can tell this dress wasn't meant to be reversible. Another reviewer mentioned that it has a high low hem and it does. Its not too bad or noticeable when you wear it with the buttons in front. The bodice though, makes it harder to wear in reverse. It's a lot longer on the side with no buttons and shorter on the side with buttons. So you can reverse it, but you may have have a longer scrunched up bodice in the back. There is a small flap to cover the opening where the buttons are, but sometimes it gets stuck flooded open (from sitting on it). So I wear a slip just to prevent my underwear from showing. This dress is lined, so you don't have to wear a slip for see through reasons. Great dress, the color is beautiful! I ordered the grapefruit color, it's just as pictured. I would say I wish I sized down a little. I ordered the small size and I'm 5'3, 125 lbs, 34 B, 27 waist, and 39 hips."
"this sundress has a hi-low hem: mid-thigh in the front to knee-length in the back. I dislike this style hem, and wished that it would've been noted in the description or had a clearer model photograph. I agree w/ the other reviewer that it's a tad too poofy.
the good: great soft material and print; not neon, but a nice coral tone; the bodice fits nice.
not my style, but someone will have fun in this! happy summer :)"

Review 4 for Lydia Tube Dress
body type:pear shaped
Cute but short!
"This dress is very cute but I found it too short in the bodice and the skirt, The colour is lovely but I also thought the skirt was much more puffed out than in the photos."
"I bought this dress in the grapefruit combo and Iove it! You can wear it with the buttons in back or front I prefer in front and it comes with removable straps. It's the perfect little summer dress! I wore it with my FP floatal pattern crochet vest and a pair of sandals very cute! Fits TTS and its stretchy on the breasts which is nice. :}"
