I live in Sweden, so was a little hesitant about ordering overseas - but I needn't have worried. Eliza Parker takes customer care seriously. First, the dress(es) I bought were speedily shipped and arrived in just a matter of days. They were exquisitely packed, with a nice hand-written note, and a nice offer for my next buy... Very nice touch!
And so the dress. I really, really like it! I'm 6 foot and had read another tall customer above saying the dress felt a teensy bit short. It comes to my knees, not too short at all for me (And I have rather long legs).
The size 18-20 fit me well, and the waist cinch makes it very adjustable. I can wear it very casual or a bit more fitted. The fabric is lightweight but not frail, and the slip is nice - but I will try a light/nude colour slip underneath next time I wear it thought, for visual interest.
Eliza Parker is a bit of a splurge for me, but the nice shopping experience plus the great garments will surely suck me back in...

Hey you won't be disappointed with this dress ladies. The eyelet is so summer. I only wish they offered a nude colored slip to go with it. Can I just say that the slip that comes with it skims every curve perfectly.
Great job on this dress Eliza Parker! Keep 'em coming.

This dress was a bit of a splurge for me, but it was worth every penny. With the half-sleeves and the tie-back sash, this dress is exactly what I was looking for in a summer dress. I love that it comes with a slip to wear, though I think I can get away with nude colored underclothes, too. The material is substantial and so pretty. The bib-front is adorable without being too cutesy-wootsy. I am in love with this dress.

I wore this dress to a wedding rehearsal dinner and received many compliments. It is sexy yet tasteful, fits comfortably, and you can dress it up for down. Because I am tall (6 feet) and have slightly thicker upper legs, I did feel the need to wear it with short capris, it was a little short. But for the average height woman, it should hit right where you want it.

I was very happy to receive my dress, my first order with Eliza Parker. Great customer care from the start. Wonderful dress quality, nice slip provided and would enjoy other colors.
Only comment is that, as someone else mentioned, I too am what I'd call a solid 26/28 and I was nervous the dress may not fit when I ordered. Instead, I would really like to try on a smaller size. Lots of room up top, the arms and through the skirt.
I'd also like to see it cut with more of a true V neck or show more cleavage. I am going to keep it and wear it to a summer wedding.
I'd also like to find a way to cinch the dress a bit to show shape...but without the typical tie in the back sash.
Will be looking for more styles though. Love supporting someone local.

Finally a designer who makes you feel sexy in your curves and anticipates your needs. I agree completely with the two other reviewers in that this dress is versatile, well, made, flattering and stylish. I loved the surprise of the pockets and as a mom, they so come in handy. I live in casual AZ so this goes to school to drop off the kids and out to dinner with the hubby. The best part about it was the presentation -- mine arrived with a beautiful note from the designer in tissue paper -- very old school and classy. Receiving it felt like a great present!

L-O-V-E this dress! This fit so well and made me so happy to have a dress without an elastic waist. I'm tall (5' 8 1/2") and have a full-figured hourglass body type. This sweet black dress compliments my shape so perfectly! The sash accentuates my curves and the pockets are a nice surprise. The subtle pattern of black eyelets and ruffles makes this really unique. It's super light, airy and can be dressed up or down with the right accessories. Definitely worth the price!

This dress is absolutely lovely. It's adorable--and easy enough to dress up or down. I've worn it with cute flats to work and sneakers on the weekend. It's an incredibly well-made dress. I'm even impressed with the quality of the sheath/slip that goes underneath. There are adorable pockets and a tie for a bow in the back--so so cute. It is also a very generously cut dress. I'm a solid 26/28, and I may have been able to wear a size down. FYI, I'm a round girl, an apple as they say. . .
If this dress came in other colors, I would buy them all and wear it every day of the week. Cute, comfortable, stylish, interesting and fun.
