The sleeves! Horrible! Review by KiwiAsh

Omg. I was soo excited for this dress, I'm the biggest polkadot fangirl, but the sleeves completely ruin it!! Ugh literally soo gutted!! The sleeves are like attached to the side of the dress below the underarm area... Whhyyy??? Soo pointless, I literally can't move my arms, suuper annoying, I mean sure it's fine if I just stand completely still and never move my arms...??? Ugh! Just the worst design ever. Which sucks because the rest of the dress is exactly what I had thought it would be like. It actually makes me feel super claustrophobic tbh lol even with the sleeves unbuttoned, still just no ability for movement at all. My heart is broken, and since I'm in nz, it'd cost more to send back than I'd end up being refunded, so I'm stuck with a dress I cant wear, which just hangs there and taunts me. Also, shipping took literally 4weeks to get to me. I'm a pear shaped size uk22 = 2x, based on the 2other pug dresses I've bought. I ordered a 2x, sizing was ok, except the waist is super tight considering, like they expect you to wear a waist trainer everytime. Anyway hope this helps someone. (Posted on 11/25/2015)
So cute when it's on--but hard to actually get onReview by Jenn

This dress has many great things going for it: the polka dots are the perfect size, the puffed sleeves and horizontally-banded waist great a great silhouette, the fabric has great swish to it, and the cross-over bodice is high enough that I don't have to wear a camisole underneath for my office job (common problem with my figure).

However, this dress is incredibly difficult to get on! Specifically, to get zipped up. A combination of the zipper going up all the way to 1/2" below the armpit seam, coupled with tight sleeves, coupled with non-stretchy fabric means it's really hard to bend your arms to get into that spot without pulling the fabric too far apart to zip up. The non-stretchy fabric and tight sleeves also mean restricted arm movement while you're wearing the dress.

I basically can only wear this dress on days when my husband is at home to help zip me up, and when I won't need to stretch to reach anything (including putting my hair up). But on those days, it's a great dress! (Posted on 8/3/2015)

I wanted to love this dress but the fabric was not as nice as other PUG offerings. Also from the waist down the dress is cute but the top portion makes me feel a bit claustrophobic. This dress is not very open in the chest at all. It's definitely a more modest dress by far. I returned it and the mint one. As always, PUG customer service was top notch. Thank you for that PUG! It's hard to come by. (Posted on 6/12/2015)
DisappointedReview by Hourglass

I thought this dress would be so cute to wear to work! I have to agree with the other reviewers. I'm a 36D-30-40, 5'5", I got the medium. The sleeves were tight and the bust was too small. I put on a minimizing bra and it made it worse! The zipper felt like it was going to break pulling it up and down, even when the dress was off. It just wasn't flattering at all, especially as compared to PUG's other brands. (Posted on 6/9/2015)
Excellent dress!Review by Christi

i love this dress! It looks classy, and it's modest enough that I enjoy wearing it to church.
It's a little snug in the shoulders, but I have broad shoulders, so it's not unexpected.
The issues I'm having is the lining. It's cheap synthetic fabric, and I really dislike the feel of it.
Also, my zipper has been sticking, and it's so high up in my armpit that it's difficult to fix while I'm wearing the dress.

I still wear it, and enjoy it, but getting it on and off is more frustrating than any other dress I've purchased from this site. (Posted on 5/26/2015)

I really love this dress, and I wear it quite often the price was pretty good too. unfortunately in is not made in America, which is what I normally try to buy when it comes to clothing. However this is a well made dress and you get what you pay for. the arms are a little tight on me lucky for us there is buttons that you can undue that make it looser on the arms. Also, I might just be a prude deep down but I felt that the bust was a little too open, granted I am not the most well endowed female out there, I am a about a c cup ( a little bit smaller) but I just take a pretty pin and that fixes all my problems of feeling a bit too exposed. Overall this is a wonderful dress and I highly suggest it. this was my first purchase from PUG and it will not be my last. (Posted on 3/18/2014)
Great dress, if you have thin arms...Review by Lori

Don't get me wrong, I love the dress... it fits well, and I have plenty of room in the shoulders, bust, waist and hips. Oh and it's actually long enough! I'm 6' tall, and most dresses are too short. My only problem area is the arms, they are just too tight. Thankfully there is a button, I open it up and I can wear the dress, but I would have had to send it back if those buttons weren't there.

I am tall and slim and measured myself carefully, opting for the medium, unfortunately it was too small so re-ordered the Large - fits well - looking forward to wearing it out.

I am really unimpressed by the returns process - I still have not received my money back in my bank account since August (after being told that this would be done specially instead of a credit) - how long does it take to organise this????? Not happy with the customer service at all which has tarnished my view of recomending this site to others. Just getting lots of inefectual emails resolving nothing!! (Posted on 12/4/2013)

I love the fit and quality of this dress. I can't afford $75-100 or more for a dress so I was pleasantly surprised to find this one. I always order to fit my bust measurement and this fit perfectly up top and in the waist. It was really nice to find it had pockets also. This is a very flattering fit and style and I hope that PUG adds more of them to their line for those of us who don't have the budget for the high-dollar items. (Posted on 12/4/2013)

Love this dress so much! This is my 2nd PUG purchase and once again I am extremely happy with it!!!! It fits beautifully, very flattering. I received many compliments on it. I love the material, very soft and you just hand wash it and let it air dry, no need for ironing. It's a dress you can dress up for an event or dress down for the office, very versatile. I love this style and material, please bring more dresses like this PUG! Simply gorgeous! (Posted on 12/4/2013)
