Camo soft shirt dress
Shoulder area WAY TOO SMALL
I normally wear an 18-20, but I read reviews of this dress being small in the shoulder/bust area, so I bought one size up - a 22/24. I was FLOORED when it was still too small. I do have a wider shoulder build, like I'm sure SO many other woman who shop at LB do, but I could not believe that I felt like I had T-rex arms after putting this one. The buttons were gaping at the bust. The shoulder seams were about 1/2" in from where they should have been. And the arms were WAY TOO TIGHT! I don't know how I even got it on and I had to have help getting if off without ripping it. From the waist down it was a little too large (since I had to buy one size up) but I could have worked with it since it looks good flowy anyway. I took it back to the store and tried on a 26/28. The top part fit perfectly! And I REALLY wanted a camo dress, so I bought this dress TWO SIZES LARGER! Now the back of the dress above the elastic part of the waist hangs over the waist because it's too big! I have not yet decided if I will see about having it tailored or just return it.
Lane Bryant, listen up! This is a HUGE complaint on SO MANY of your products. The arms and shoulders are made WAY too small compared to the rest of the shirt. I have LB shirts from 10 yrs ago in a size 14/16 that still fit me, but today, I'd have to buy that same shirt in a 22/24 to make it fit my arms. MAKE THE ARMS BIGGER! We are larger women, we have larger arms! And for those women who don't have larger arms, a larger sleeve will be JUST FINE!! I would buy SO MUCH MORE, if this wasn't so consistently an issue.

Love this dress! Cute, stylish, and fits great. I tried it on without stockings and small heels-looked great. Wore it to work with black tights, boots and funky jewelry for a completely different look. The only thing I would prefer is that it would be a tiny bit longer, but I just don't like my knees to show. Others may like the length. It fits pretty true to size. One note-the finish of the dress is kind of silky and the material is light, not heavy, so take note if you are expecting a heavier material.

This dress has a great fit and will look cute with flats or booties!
