I love this dress! It looks and feels great. I usually wear a US 14 and got the XL in Knife length, and it fits perfectly. It's a flirty length, so if you're nervous about your booty showing, you may want to go longer, but I wear bike shorts underneath my dresses anyway.
I desperately wanted to order something from Lorica but cringed at the price a bit. I couldn't justify that much for a pair of leggings, but a DRESS?! Oh, yes, I can justify THAT! So I bought one if these, and I absolutely LOVE it!! It is very comfortable. There's a little flaring on the chest around the arm holes, but that might just be how I'm shaped. Even when stretched, the pattern looks even & very good. The fabric breathes, making this my summer go-to for any gathering.
I've worn it to a gathering of nerdy friends, who all recognized that it's armor, but didn't know it was based on a real, historical set of armor. Much geeking ensued. I have had to bookmark this page on my phone so I can pull it up to show people. In fact, I literally had a friend call today to ask for the link. He was visiting his SO's family & had mentioned it to them. (The phone call is actually what prompted me to write a review)
AND IT HAS POCKETS, which delights everybody (my guy friends understand the struggle).
Of course, given how much I love this dress, I am finding it harder to talk myself out of getting some of those amazing leggings.... next time I have some extra money, I am getting some!
I fit comfortably in the XL Lance dress and it gave me an instant confidence boost. It's light for the summer but also appropriate for the fall/winter.
The print is also really well done. Even over my chest, the dress fits comfortably so the armor print didn’t look warped or stretched.
I highly recommend this dress for the print, fit, and style.
This dress is fierce! I never thought that I could wear something that makes me feel so powerful, confident, and feminine at the same time. The upper half of the dress is form-fitting while the bottom is delightfully swishy! Without a doubt, my favorite thing about the dress is watching the tassets sway around my legs. I am 5'2" with a 33" waist, and the dress (large) fits so well that I don't feel the need to suck in my belly even a little. The detail is gorgeous; however, on my dress, the top is slightly misaligned to the skirt and makes the plackart look folded in. Overall, a lovely dress that I recommend for any adventure!
