FIT: Slightly Large
Wanted to love - but see through
I will update this review once I receive the blue version of this dress. But the white is see through. You would need to wear a slip for sure. Or use this as a bathing suit cover up. Otherwise I think the fit and shape of the dress is nice. Easy, breasy and comfortable. A good dress to throw on and run errands or go to work in. And the right length - not too long but also not too short. I'm a new mom that has to bend down a bunch to pick up a small child and I don't foresee any issues bending down in this dress or trying to wrestle my kid out of the car seat wearing this.
Not as flattering on a petite woman with a large chest...
Wasn’t the right look on someone short (5’2”) with a large chest... decided to return it. Looks cute on another body type for sure!
Can be dressed up or down
I purchased this dress in white because the blue print I’ve been eyeing is sold out in my size. The dress appears transparent out of the box but is not see through at all on. I’m in my first trimester of pregnancy and this dress is slightly large, which has come in handy. I’ll likely cinch the waist with a belt next summer after baby is here!
Easy Shirt Dress
I was hesitant to buy this since some people said it runs large. I ordered it and couldn't be more glad I did! I am 5'5" 105 lbs and the xs small was slightly 'flowy' but didn't feel too big at all! In fact, I loved the shift and flowy feel so much I ordered the navy
Wish it worked
I was hoping this would work for me but it was too large. It’s a classic and well made but I am 5’3, 106 pounds and xs was swimming on me. Maybe it could have worked with a belt but I returned it.
If you're between sizes, I would definitely go down. I LOVE this dress and it's just what I was looking for...light, versatile for work, dinner, or running around. Beware that it wrinkles but I recommend embracing it :). Tuckernuck, please bring this back and add pockets!!!! That would make it perfect!
The shape is very cute and forgiving. The top fits true to size on me, but the skirt is very voluminous. I love the shape and the crisp white fabric. Perfect for brunch! I styled it with espadrilles and the sleeves cuffed and got a ton of compliments! The white is a bit see through, so wear a slip or neutral undergarments. The blousy shape makes it more modest, though.
Easy dress to feel put together
I sized down to an XS and it’s still slightly large. I’m normally a size 4. A small would have swallowed me. It’s an easy throw on dress that feels very chic.
East Summertime Staple
This dress is easy, lightweight and will be a staple for me this summer! With that said, the dress does run a bit on the larger size (I would recommend going a size down) and can be a little see through (be sure to wear nude underwear!). I like to accessorize my shirt dress with a lightweight scarf and the raffia earrings!
All the yes
This is perfect and ended up being everything I imagined it would be! So versatile and such a flattering silhouette. I especially love that it doesn't have a collar because collars don't look the best on me. This will be my go to this summer.
Bought in both colors!
I first ordered this dress in the print and wore it on Easter and then ordered the white for some Summer beach trips. It is generously cut but doesn’t look like too much fabric. It’s a new staple in my wardrobe!
A Closet Staple
I can't get enough of this dress! Style it with pointy flats and a silk scarf for work, and cognac sandals for the weekend. The poplin fabric is very breathable, and will be perfect for hot Summer days.
I took other reviewers’ advice and sized down to an XS. I’m 5’7 and was worried it would be too short, but it was just right. The material has a nice stretch to it and while it’s not totally opaque, it’s not at all see through.
Easy everyday dress
I'm 5'6" normally a 0/2 and I ordered a size xs, and it fits me perfectly! I like things slightly boxier, so I see why it says it runs slightly large, but I like the way it fits! Wore nude underwear and not see through at all. I want to wear this dress every day! I've work it with sneakers on the weekend and with leopard flats to work.
Super cute but a bit see through
Between xs and s went with xs. This dressy is loose fitting but quite flattering hitting at all the right places. It is a tad see through so I recommend wearing with a slip.
Comfortable Everyday Summer Dress
This dress is perfect in theory. It is a comfortable, slightly over-sized fit. I am still working on trying to style it perfectly so it doesn’t hang on me. Looks great with a denim jacket and scarf for a fun date night or lunch with friends!
A Closet Essential!!
I am obsessed with the relaxed fit of this shirt dress. It is a classic, while still feeling modern and I have already gotten plenty of compliments. I am 5'3 and normally between an XS and S, and I went with the XS. It is the perfect, oversized fit for staying cool all spring and summer.
Comfortable, Versatile and Chic
I love this dress. It is a classic shirt dress in a roomy, but still chic fit. It's perfect for day time work, errands or any event where you want to feel elegant. I am a 0/2 and 5'9" and wear the XS. It is a breezy fit in the midsection, so if you prefer fitted dresses, this may not be for you. I will be styling it with loafers and a scarf for work and strappy sandals or espadrilles with big earrings for evening. It is great quality too.
BEST shirt dress
This dress is literally the best update to a classic shirt dress. The shape is the most flattering. I apologize in advance to my coworkers, because you're going to have to see me in this dress (at least) once a week. Fits true to size! I am a size 4/small with a 34C and I have the small!
my new go-to!
I can't stop wearing this dress! To work with a blazer, to drinks with earrings. I ordered my usual small and this is cut generously, which I prefer for DC summers but you may want to consider sizing down. I did have to hem this an inch or two because it was a bit long to wear with flats for me.
Cute, Comfortable & Flattering
This is an awesome dress. High quality, comfortable material. Great for multiple occasions- cute yet also slightly conservative. I did really have to size down for the perfect fit. Normally a size 8 or M, but took an XS in this dress.
A new “go to” dress!
I’m usually between a S and a M and I went with a small - perfect in the arms, bust, and length! I’m 5’7 and this hits just above the knees. The print is fun and versatile- would love more colors!
Love this dress!
I purchased this dress in a medium-I’m usually between a small and medium in dresses depending on the fit. I like the loose fit of the dress-it’s perfect for running around town and chasing my 8 month old son!
Be ready for lots of compliments!
I have received so many compliments on this dress! The relaxed style is polished and professional enough for work but great with sandals for weekends in our hot Florida weather. I am between an XS and a S and the XS was perfect.
Easy to wear
When I first put it on, I was concerned I looked too wide and tried to belt it which did not look how I wanted it to. I decided to keep it anyways and am happy I did. I like how light the fabric is and I received several compliments while wearing it. It is comfortable and I'm sure I will be wearing it more when the weather warms up. Going to try it in the white as well.
Cute, classic and unique!
I love this dress! The colors, subtle pattern, and style make this dress different from anything else I've seen. The fit is looser and on the longer side, but in my opinion that makes it classy and easy to wear for many different occasions. I purchased my usual size Small and it fits similar to the model, a few inches above the knee.
I wanted to love this dress...
I love Tuckernuck and was so excited to discover this dress on the website. I ordered a small (usual size), and while I saw the fit was slightly over-sized on the model, I was shocked to experience the true size in person. Loved the quality of the fabric and the beautiful blue print; hate that the fit made me feel like I was wearing a deflated circus tent. Tried a belt, which generally helped, but didn't align with the seam around the waist and looked off. Ultimately had to return.
My favorite go to dress now!!
I love this dress and it was perfect for Easter! It arrived quicker than I expected and I was able to wear it for Easter!! I got tons of compliments and I’m planning on ordering another dress from y’all for Mother’s Day!!!
Will be wearing this dress on repeat all summer!
I love this dress! It is super comfortable and the print is such a pretty color of blue. It’s definitely a looser fit, but that didn’t bother me. The length is great too—is work appropriate but can be worn at any spring or summer function as well. Would love to see this dress in more fun prints/colors!
Too big. Had to return
I loved the print on this dress but it was way too big! I exchanged it for a smaller size but it still wasn’t very flattering. Would be great if was pregnant or wanted loose fit as it’s such a cute pattern!
You go-to dress
This shirt dress is absolutely adorable! It does run a tad small, so take that into consideration when ordering. You can dress it up or wear it with tennies and it looks great. I love my blue dress so much I just ordered the white one!
Perfect for a bump and after
I’m 25 weeks pregnant and this dress is perfect for now and will be great after too! I’m usually a size small/4 and the small still works pregnant. Really love the pattern too.
More colors and prints, please!
I loved the way this looked online that I ordered both colors (ditsy and white) and will keep both. The fit is slightly oversized, but that's the look I wanted. I'm a true medium, hourglass, petite, and this fit perfectly - no pulling at the bust, straight in the shoulders, great length. I'm so excited about both dresses and the myriad ways to style them! The cotton is excellent quality. The white is a little sheer, but nude underpinnings easily solve that problem. I'm hopeful that Tuckernuck will release this dress in more colors and prints!
Has some promise
I ordered this in the blue and white. The collar is not that flattering and it was oversized. Therefore, the sleeves were really big too. I tried folding them like on the model but decided I would need this in a size down and in white since the pattern was not my style. I have not exchanged it yet because I’m worried it might be too short.
MY NEW FAV!
Extremely excited that tuckernuck finally came out with their own line! This dress is literally perfect and encompasses all things #tnuck! It fits true to size, isn't fitted and is so classic! It's my new favorite dress!
New go-to dress!
I can’t say enough good things about this dress! I love the cut of the dress - the slightly nipped in waist is great - it adds a good dimension to the dress, especially since it leans towards an oversized fit. Also the shade of the blue in the flowers is the most beautiful deep periwinkle. I love that it can be dressed up or down with just a change of shoes!
Floral Shirt Dress
The pattern is absolutely adorable! The fit is nice and breezy - a little oversized in the best way. Loved so much ordered the solid color. I am normally a size small and stuck with the small for the oversized look!
Adorable print, but way too big
I am 5'5", 125 and usually order a size small in dresses, but occasionally order XS if the dress looks flowy, like this one. I was worried the XS would be too small, but unfortunately, it was huge. The dress fit like it was two sizes too big. Sadly I will be returning. That being said, if you are looking for a dress with an adorable print and want a roomier fit this is perfect for you!
Arrived today and worth every penny. Wearing to baby shower tomorrow and feel cute and comfortable in it. Very forgiving fit for my midsection and was happily surprised with material. Not see through which I worried about. Purchased Medium. Only change I’d make is to make the arms more fitted, they are looser. Darling and will be back for more!
Love, love, love. Coveted this dress all summer, and so happy I finally purchased it once it went on sale. I whole heartedly agree with others that it runs a bit large. I’m usually a size 4, and the x-small was definitely the way to go... even that feels like I could have gone down another size if one existed.
Runs extremely large. Not for the petite.
I wanted to love this and for it to be my new staple piece, but this is a definite no. I'm normally an XSP and thought an XS would be doable, but unfortunately it's huge! Even a belt doesn't do the trick as there's still so much fabric. I bought this as a final sale item and am extremely disappointed.
Classic and adorable
This dress is my new favorite for the Spring and Summer. It’s crisp yet stretchy and so comfortable! It’s perfect with some cute sneakers or you can dress it up with some espadrilles or sandals! I’m looking forward to being able to wear this out again!!!
Perfect navy dress
I sized down one size based on reviews and it fits great. The top is more fitted so it’s not too boxy. The drop waist in the back makes it very flattering. I’ll be able to dress it up with sandals or Wear it casually with tennis shoes.
Wanted to love this
I'm usually a size 8 in jeans/dresses. This dress in a size medium absolutely engulfs me. I wanted to love it. I'm going to exchange this dress for the small to see if it helps. The collar also doesn't lay as shown in the photos. It has a very matronly look otherwise. I'm wondering if some fashion tape would help it. I hope the small works!
Wanted to love
Really wanted to love this dress but I think it just didn't work for my body type - the neck came super high and the length was too long and didn't fall how I wanted it to. Otherwise the fit was perfect for a XS - I am 5'2" and ~140 lbs.
Loved this dress except had to return
I love this dress and thinks it’s very fun and fashionable. The material is light and flows. The length is perfect. My problem is with how the top buttons up. It looks very matronly. I tried training the top to lay to the side as soon in the pictures. That didn’t work. I thought about going to have it altered but didn’t want to take the chance it wouldn’t come out right. This dress would be a perfect 10 if it had a v button up or a collar. Please switch it for next season. Then I would buy one in very color.
Love this dress!
This dress is the perfect mix of dressy and casual. The light cotton is perfect for any weather and looks adorable belted. I've worn it to work, to a picnic and for family photos. It looked beautiful every time. You won't regret this purchase!
Great casual work dress
Love it wish but for the price wish it had pockets however I will say it no spaces in buttoning in the chest area which never happens so this is how my go to dress pockets or not xox
Perfect mom dress
I have this dress in two colors and get tons of compliments. Perfect for a morning at the farmer's market, brunch, or the playground with kids. Super lightweight and breezy so can be worn in the heat of summer - with sandals or cute tennis shoes!
Classic prep without looking dated
I was in search of a solid work appropriate dress with sleeves for summer. This dress in navy is a workhorse. With accessories you can change up for so many different looks. With heels and pearls and gold hoops this dress feels just right at work or a conference. Add wedges and fun earrings and you can amp up the fun, add Sandals and a tank underneath and yet another look. I think I will wear this dress over and over again. Tuckernuck when will you make this in black or gingham check?
So cute! Watch sizing.
This dress is so so cute, versatile and well made. But I ordered an XS (normally a 4) and it was just huge. Adjust the sizing and I am all in! Highly recommend if you are a size 6+ but be sure to size down!!
Amazing year-round dress
I love this dress, especially right now! The dress run a little bit on the larger side, so if you're in between sizes, and you prefer dresses to be a little more fitted, I would size down. I'm normally an Extra Small/0, and I purchased the Extra Small. The fit is definitely loose through my waist, but I personally put mine in the dryer, and it shrank a little - I love the fit now! I'm loving this dress right now since it's so hot, and I can't wait to transition this dress into the fall!
Great summer dress.
A tad tight across the bust. Am waiting for the replacement to arrive. Crear year rotundo dress for south Florida, good quality fabric, and very well made. Love your products.
cute but returned
I was so excited about this dress. I was looking for a shirt dress and I LOVED that this was a little unstructured and flowy. I decided to get the navy after reading that some thought the white was too thin, I was afraid to spill haha so got the navy. The material is thin, but in a light breezy summer way. The sleeves were nice and could be rolled up to shorten. I was disappointed about the collar/chest part. it laid so flat on my collarbone area that i might as well have had it buttoned all the way up. I was hoping that part wasn't as structured and matched the rest. i sadly returned because of this.
Love this dress!
I have this dress in white and navy. A small fit but was a little tight in the chest so I got a medium. It’s a shirt dress so it is supposed to be roomy. Such a great wardrobe staple. You can do just about anything with it!
