These shirt dresses seem to be the only kind of TL's dresses that fit my frame properly. I'm 5'4" 115lbs 32C and the XS fits wonderfully without the usual billowing or draping of other dresses in the XS size. This dress is fantastic. The material is substantial enough for cool weather, which is perfect for the cooler days here in south Florida. The material doesn't seem to wrinkle, so you look polished and sleek all day. This is definitely my 'grab and go' dress when I need to look professional/polished in a rush. Throw on some black stilettos and I'm good to go! I also purchased the black and white hounds-tooth. Highly recommend!
This dress is my new go-to for work and running errands. Extremely comfortable and flattering. Wear with brown wrap obi belt, tall boots or booties for effortless style!

Yet another one to avoid for petite muscular types
This dress would probably hang well on a taller woman, but the combination of the fabric and the larger houndstooth print just does not work on my 5'2" muscular frame. It overpowers and does not flatter. Such a shame because I was so excited when I saw it online.
Love this shirtdress. It fits true to Limited sizing. I am my usual XS in dresses.
I have a 0 size top and a 4 size bottom. I bought a shirtdress last year that ripped in the skirt because it was too tight with no stretch. This dress has the PERFECT amount of stretch.
I got the black strip pattern. The pattern is a little different in person, but I still love it. The dress is lined (which is amazing) and lays great. I think it looks good with the tie-belt, and also with my own black skinny belt. This dress is so comfortable and professional. Looks so great I'm considering wearing it to my board meeting tomorrow!
I'm a lover of all things with a houndstooth print so I grabbed this dress when the Limited did a recent promo. The houndstooth pattern is even prettier in person. The dress is the perfect transition piece for fall since you can wear it now with peep toe shoes and later with boots and a long cardi when the weather cools down. I don't really think this is a knit dress. The fabric is really just more of a poly blend rather than a knit. The upside is that this doesn't wrinkle very easily and is perfect for travel. The slight downside is that the fabric tends to pucker just a bit around the center seams towards the bottom of the dress. It's not a huge drawback, just something to note. This runs true to size. I'm typically a size 4 or a small in Limited dresses and the small fit perfectly. I like it with the tie belt they have with it or I think it would look cute with a thin fuchsia or red patent belt for a pop of color. Overall, a great dress that I'll get a lot of use out of.
This is one of the best shirt dresses that limited has made. The fabric has good amount of stretch, very little tendancy to wrinkle, lined (which is very rare for shirt dress), and the fit is just perfect. Yes both colors are great too.
