STRIPED FIT AND FLARE SWEATER DRESS
Super cute, but way too big!
This looked so cute on, except that it runs HUGE! 5'4'', 115lbs, usually XS fits me perfectly, but this XS was way too big around the mid section. Saddest return ever!

This was the one purchase in my online shopping cart I was on the fence about buying but I am SO glad that I did. I'm obsessed with this dress and will be wearing it all throughout fall/winter!
Yes, as other reviewers mention It does run pretty big so size down! I am 5'4 34DD 125lbs and typically buy small/extra smalls at express. I purchased this in an XS and it is a little loose fitting but still looks great! It's just not one of those super form fitting dresses. This dress is also insanely comfortable! I highly recommend, just make sure to size down!

runs at least two sizes large!
I got this dress in the mail today, tried it on, and it's huge! I usually wear a size medium. I'm 140 lbs, 5'3, and 36D. This dress was way too big. It felt like it was at least two sizes too big. I love it, so maybe i'll try a xs

Cute, but definite sizing issue
As the previous reviewer stated, I LOVE the look and style of this dress, but the sizing is way off. I am typically a small in express tops and dresses, so I went with that for this dress as well. There were no reviews at the time when I made the purchase, but I wish there had been because it is huge, especially the neckline. I am going to exchange for an XS and see if that does the trick, although I'm worried about length. For reference: I am 5'6, 130lbs, 32B chest.

runs very large!
So disappointed with this sweater dress! It's so cute with it's thick stripes and fit & flare shape, but it runs BIG. I am typically a size Small in tops and dresses at Express, sometimes an X-Small, but it depends on the style. I ordered an XS in this dress because I'm small up top and wanted the top part of the dress to be fitted. When the dress arrived in the mail and I tried it on, I was pretty bummed to see that the neckline was a little too low, and the fit up the top was not nearly as fitted as I would have liked. An XS is never too big for me, especially at Express, so I was very surprised. It runs at least one size too big, maybe even more. The XS fits like a very large S, if that makes sense...it would probably fit someone who is typically a size Medium but it would be pretty snug. Very petite ladies are definitely sized out of this dress! For reference, I'm 5'4" and about 120 pounds.
