To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Runs small. I purchased this dress in a small for my six year old. When it arrived, she tried it on and the hem landed about three inches above the knee. I made the mistake of drying this 100% cotton dress (which was bound to happen at some point) and it is now a perfect fit for my four-year old. So order a size up. It is also very light, which is nice if you live in a hot climate.
My 6 year old daughter wears a uniform to school and I was looking for something for her to wear in the upcoming Spring. I found this short sleeve polo dress and decided to give it a try. Not sure why I chose this brand over the others (because they all pretty much look the same) but I am glad I did! This dress is perfect for the Spring weather and looks adorable on her. Although she is 6 years old she is quite small for her age (about 40 inches tall) according to the size chart she would be an XS (size guide 4-5). I followed the size chart and the XS fits her perfectly. She isn’t a dress kind of a girl but since it looked just like her uniform shirt but just longer, I was able to talk her into it and now she loves it!
I would say that the only thing that I didn’t love was the fact that it didn’t come in white. Oh well!
Side Note: *Of course this arrived the day before our area schools closed temporarily due to the CORONAVIRUS! Fingers crossed that that school opens up again before the end of the school year so my daughter even has a chance to wear it!!
The main thing I like about this dress is that it is Amazon Essentials and I should be able to buy year round. It's very difficult to find a red polo style dress once the back to school phase has ended, unless you want to pay at least double this price. The red faded a bit faster than another brand, but just barely. Great wide dress for those with a little extra belly. My child typically wears a 10-12 The Children's Place/Old Navy or a size 8 Target Cat & Jack (they shrink a little), and this is on par with the 10-12 The Children's place/Old Navy sizing. I will likely be buying more of these dresses during the year as my kid grows.
I know my daughter is tall for her age so I always buy one size up in everything that I purchased for her. This barely lasted me the school year. I think it shrank right away after one wash and could only be worn with leggings after that. I think all kids clothes should be able to be thrown in the dryer so I certainly wasn't going to hang dry this. Next time I'll purchased 2 sizes up! Other than the obvious shrinkage issue this is a great dress.
As described. Color is good. Rather thin material-perfect for warm days. Slim fitting through the waist. Usually a 4T is on the larger side for my daughter but this fits without a lot of growing room. Length as described.
