Rated 5 out of 5 by MissAlicia Runs Large, but totally gorgeous
I have been obsessing over this dress since the mailer came out in June. I went to three different stores to find the dress in my size, the third store finally had it! For me, it runs a full size large, but I have had some trouble with a few dresses this season running larger than expected. I have the Janice in Glenda Green in a 6, from last year (or maybe the year before) which is tight, but I definitely need a 4 in this one. The colors and fabric are amazing and I love the lace down the front. I am curvier than the model and have a little bit of a mommy tummy from pregnancy. This shift covers all of my flaws and makes me feel great about my body! The classic colors and styling of this dress will make it a favorite of mine for years to come!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mebs Another Janice Winner
I love this Janice. I think all of the Janices this year are prettier than last year's when they first were introduced. As is typical, they are more fitted through the waist than the traditional Lilly shift, but they do not "run small"; they are simply a more fitted style. Also the length is much better than the shorter styles of shifts; they are just the right length without being too skimpy. I personally love the pique fabric even though it is a bit "heavier" than the cotton poplin.....What this fabric provides is a style that doesn't easily get wrinkled or rumpled because of the texture. I have gotten all of the Janices this year and am very happy with this one and love the fun colors. I don't see how anyone could be disappointed with this great dress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CB27 Love it!
Great fit, great print....long enough for my height and age...which many of the dresses are not. One of my favorites!

Rated 5 out of 5 by FLShopper207 Perfect in Every Way! Buy This Dress!
Janice in general is a fabulous style and the fit is great...but with the She She Shells print and the lace down the front! It's a definite WOW! I could not buy this beautiful dress fast enough. I almost wish Lilly had made this dress with the lighter weight fabric like the Harbour Tunic Dress instead of the heavy pique since it is so hot in the summer. No worries however, I will love wearing this dress and I definitely recommend.

As the description says -- it's a staple! You can dress it up or down -- it's both flattering and comfortable to wear!

Rated 3 out of 5 by PalmettoPineapple Bell Bottoms
Yay! Another Lilly dress that fits terrible. So far, I've bought 3 other dresses that didn't fit. That's right...Not another one! :( Let me just say, that while the fit looks extremely odd, the fabric is high-quality, the lacing down the front is genius, and I love the new She She Shells print. Now..I own other Lilly shifts, and they go down to my knee since I'm much shorter than the model. However, while they look a little too long, they're still acceptable. But this dress looked strange. Since the length of this dress is supposed to hit you around your thighs, it flares out a bit. When it comes down to your knees it looks like you're wearing a huge bell. So far, I haven't tried sizing down YET, but I expect that the size will probably be too tight. Another beautiful dress goes down the drain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CW71 Great colors, nice Day or Night
This fits true to size, wore it to a dinner outside and it was a perfect choice. Fabric feels heavy but wears well and is cooler than you expect, it does stretch a bit as you wear it but not enough to downsize.
The print is beautiful and the cut works well for me. I am a 6 in this dress and I have a larger chest so was concerned about neckline it is low but not too low and fits well across the bust.
Overall nice basic to have in your closet.

Rated 3 out of 5 by prettyandpreppy too big in shoulders arms and chest, just right in hips.
This is a beautiful dress, however the fitting was kind of off for my body. The size 12 was too small in the hips area, but fit in the bust and arm area. I didn't get the 12 because of the snuggness around the hips. I ended up purchasing the 14 which is too big in the arms shoulders and chest. I think I might just go back and exchange for 12 and lose a few pounds, because to get it altered would be a lot more expensive. The lining of the dress is nice, and it is well made.
