Wonderful Dress!
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Mar 3, 2014   

I just LOVE this dress!!! I was a little worried that the model has so much leg showing. This worry was all in vain. Since I am not as tall as the model, the dress comes just to the top of my knees. The style is beautiful. Just enough fullness.

Nice dress
4 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Feb 17, 2014   

This dress feels rich when you put it on. It flares out quite nicely. It is extremely easy to wear. I didn't give it 5 stars because the sizing and length of the torso part is a little off. I normally wear a 6 in dresses, and ordered a 4 in this one. It was still a little too large. The torso section also came down too far instead of hitting me where it does on the model. So perhaps, if you are tall, this dress would fit perfectly.

Too large, beautiful color
3 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Feb 6, 2014   

I ordered the cobalt blue in a size 6 and it swallowed me. After going to the store I realized I am a size 4 so I should have ordered a 2. The dress is flattering and thick material, gorgeous color and had the store had a size 2 I would have exchanged. However, personally, I think it needs a lot of jewelry to accessorize.

Super Cute & Good Quality
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Jan 19, 2014   

This dress is adorable. It's a rare combination of being youthful and cute, but also very high quality. I am 6 feet tall, and the dress is not inappropriately short for me by any means. Love it!!

Beautiful dress!!
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Jan 18, 2014   

Fit nicely and made me feel slim :} I did take the advice and sized down. I was a little worried because that took me to a 10 but some of my 12 stuff is loose anyway and I am glad I did cause it looked fabulous. My husband loved it too which is always a plus! It hit me just above the knee (I am 5'6") so the model's legs must be longer as they show it to be a few inches above the knee.

This dress is stunning. I purchased the cobalt blue color and it truly is amazing. The skirt has enough fabric for it to twirl, but it doesn't weigh you down. The exposed zipper is great and really catches the eye, as I am told when I wear it. Compliments are sure to come your way if you buy this. I love it! So versatile and great quality! Runs a little big though, so I would recommend purchasing in-store.

This color, fit and style should last throughout the year. Great day to night dress! I am 0P with curves. The shape is very flattering. I love how the skirt flares when I spin. The movement would make it a great dress for dancing with the right items underneath.

Very pretty; but weird sizing...
4 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Jan 6, 2014   

I ordered this dress going by previous reviewers' suggestions, and choosing a size down. So I was very surprised to see that the dress was still too big! I returned the dress, and ordered a size down, petite. #unfortunately, it was big but not overwhelmingly large that required two sizes down- hence, my comment on the weird size#. However, I do have to say that the dress is very pretty. The design and cut is flattering and the color cobalt is beautiful without being overwhelming. Could be used for a cocktail party or even to the office, it is that versatile. I was going to wait to receive the dress so I can write a better review; but decided to write it now, in the hopes to help someone reconsider with the sizing!

5 stars is not enough! The Ponte Knit Skater Dress is perfect in every aspect i.e., fabric, cut & design, details, construction and flatters even my difficult body shape. I had to re-order from a plus size to regular size.

Great Dress
4 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Dec 20, 2013   

Ordered this dress online, without trying it on or seeing it on person, and when it arrived I loved it. I am wear a size 16 and am large chested so it fits very well in the chest but is still short and flirty and young looking so I don't look matronly. The hem is above the knee and is suitable. The only thing I would change is the metal zipper in the back of the dress, even though its in style , it isn't my favorite.

Too big, unflattering.
2 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Dec 9, 2013   

I got this dress in my normal size, 2. When it came in the first thing I noticed is that it is virtually sleeveless. I have tiny shoulders and it didn't even begin to look like a cap sleeve on me. Also the dress was fully one size too big and did not seem like it would flatter my curves at all even with alterations.

beautiful dress
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Dec 9, 2013   

I love this dress! I bought it in black and in blue. It is very flattering - accenting the waist and hiding below. I thought the exposed gold zipper in the back pretty cheesy - but quickly realized that exposed zippers are everywhere now. I paired with two-toned jewelry so it worked out. It was also very comfortable - i wore ALL day and felt so comfy that even after my event, when everyone else changed into jeans, I kept my dress on and just took off my shoes. Also, it is youthful but not ridiculous on a forty something (like most of the dresses I saw which were MUCH shorter!). p.s. It was very inexpensive but looked very similar to a Diane Von Furstenberg (sp) I also saw.

Very Nice Dress
4 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Dec 6, 2013   

This dress works well with my hourglass body, I really llike the way it accentuates the curve at the right place. I ordered P sz 4, usually I wear sz 6, it fits me perfectly. I don't dry clean it when it first came, I washed it in delicate cycle + cold water and hung it to dry, it came out nice (I just have to iron it afterwards - I'd rather iron than dry clean which uses questionable chemicals in the process). The fabric is heavy & substantial so it drapes nicely on the hip. I recommend this dress!

Nice but too big
4 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Dec 6, 2013   

Very nice material. Looks expensive. However it was too big on me. I normally wear a 3/4 in pants and dresses. This was a 4 and it felt 2 sizes too big. Going back to get smaller size because I still LOVE the dress.

So glad I read the reviews: I normally wear a size 4 and ordered a 2 because the reviews said to. The 2 fits well and I look like a size 0 in this style!! It is super slimming and comfy. Bought a bright, fancy necklace to add some color to the plain black. Will wear this for work and evenings out.

Recently lost about 18 pounds and went from a size 10 to a size 8. I purchased the size 8, and it was too big, so i returned it at the store and picked up a 6. No problems returning it. But I really could have used a size 4. Doesn't matter, the dress looks great and I can wear it all year round. love it. I am contemplating getting it in another color.

gorgeous color, quality craftsmanship & fabric, cut to flatter, only too big in waist where it is designed to fit, otherwise it would have been my holiday dress. Had to return it. Larger would have been to large and smaller would have been to tight in top.

Snag it while it's on sale!
4 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Dec 3, 2013   

Order one full size down - runs large! The fabric is a bit heavier than I anticipated, but comfortable. A lot of flare on the skirt, so it may not be ideal for those who don't want to call attention to the hip area. The darts create a flattering silhouette. I would like to have the option to add a belt, but it looks a little curious in back with the long zipper. Color is very saturated and true to the photo. Overall, good buy for the price!

Great
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Dec 2, 2013   

After reading the other reviews I ordered a size down (normally wear a 6, got a 4) and it fits perfectly. It's very comfortable and the way it's sewn is very flattering. The fabric is a little on the thicker side, so I don't think it'll wrinkle too much. I'm a fan of the exposed zipper. I think it's a great, semi-dressy style that can be worn from work to drinks after, with a change of shoes :) Considering buying it in another color!

5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Nov 29, 2013   

Ordered this online and really like the material - it's very substantial. The dress is lined and the fit is flattering - even with my over-weight tummy. I'm 5'2" and the skirt hit just above my knees. Unfortunately, it's going back. Because I'm overweight the dress is slightly higher in the back than the front and I think it's too obvious. The other thing to consider when purchasing is the zipper. It's a definite statement.

Perfect
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Nov 24, 2013   

I know I wrote true to size but I followed the store recommendation when they said runs large go down a size I did just that and it fit perfect. This is going to be my favorite dress. The fit and flare design is so flattering to any figure and I am on the slim side and it just gives one a really nice shape. My favorite is that the top is fitted but not overly snug. And the dress can be formal or casual.

Beautiful Dress
4 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Nov 24, 2013   

This is a very petty dress but I suggest that you order one size down as it does run a little big. I only gave the dress 4 stars because I wish it were longer on me. I am 5"-7' tall and it hit slighter higher than above my knee. It still is a keeper and I cannot wait to wear it.

5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Nov 23, 2013   

I LOVELOVELOVE this dress so much that I went back and ordered it in red, and black as well. It is comfortable, fits really, well and versatile. You can add a sweater or scarf, jewelry...really change it up. PLEASE NOTE Reveiws said to order down I did not. I usually only buy Calvin Klein size 10 so I bought this is in size 10 and it fits perfectly with a tad bit of room, if I had gone down a size it would have been too tight. Maybe this means Elize J runs differently than CK, not sure but I ordered my regular size and am glad I did so. I don't dry clean, I wash all of my dresses inside out, fully zipped on delicate in the machine and hang to dry. This as well. Dry cleaning an unnecessary expense

5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Nov 22, 2013   

Great fit, really nicely made (and I'm an avid sewer). The fabric hangs really well. Just a great look and a great feel - makes you feel special wearing it. I think it's casual enough to wear to the office - throw a scarf over it - or dress it up for evening! Either way it's a winner!

Ponte Knit Skater Dress (Regular & Petite)
1 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Nov 21, 2013   

The dress looks lovely on line. Problem is if you are a curvy petite this dress is too long in the waist to accommodate any curves. Not for little women unless you are very slender without curves. I had to return the dress.

5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Nov 20, 2013   

Oh I so love this dress. It is so well made with beautiful stitching and a fine quality material. But best of all this dress made me look 10 lbs lighter and 10 years younger. Well maybe I exaggerate on the age, but it is very age appropriate yet youthful looking. The fit is just perfect and the feel is quite comfortable. The color is true to the picture, a very vibrant blue that is eye catching and flattering. So happy I purchased this dress.

I bought this for a graduation dinner, and it arrived today. I have big hips so I was kind of nervous about how it would look. While I think my hips look quite wide in the dress, it's not the dresses fault my hips are big. This dress is so comfortable and flows nicely, and I love the colour so I think it'll be perfect for the dinner. The size I ordered also runs big, I'm 5'5 and 140lbs and I ordered a size 8 and it's a bit too big.

5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Nov 11, 2013   

I am a pear-shaped dress size 4 and went with a size 2. Wore this as a Bridesmaid's dress to a fall wedding in Michigan. The fabric is a good weight for fall weather. The fabric weight and the lining allow the dress to drape nicely. The dress is 36 1/2" long from the high point shoulder (shoulder/neck seam) to the hem. Also, comfortably danced all night in this.

Very cute & flattering dress
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Nov 9, 2013   

The dress runs big. I'm normally a 6, (sometimes an 8) but I bought a 4 in this dress. It's a very flattering cut. Cute and makes me look thinner. Both the blue and black are great colors. The blue is a nice rich blue. I'm 5'7 and the dress is not too short at all. So many of this skater style run too short on me, but this was a good length.

Comfortably Sexy
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Nov 4, 2013   

Very flattering dress allowing enough room in the bodice for a larger busted woman not to have go up a size and then have the rest of the dress be too big. This dress allows you to go down a size if you are shaped like an hour glass but larger in the bust. Extremely comfortable and also helps to hide some of our flaws as the weight is substantial not flimsy.

Fit is true to size. Super comfortable and flattering. I'm not a huge fan of the gold zipper in the back, I'd rather something less noticeable, but a great dress nonetheless.

Flare dress
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Oct 27, 2013   

I love this dress as soon as I put it on. I order one size smaller and it was perfect. I am large busted and it is not to small in the bust area which I find so many dresses are.

Flattering but huge
4 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Oct 7, 2013   

I couldn't believe how big this dress runs. According to Nordstrom's size chart I would normally wear a 6 or an 8. The size I bought that fits like a glove? A size 2. And it really does fit like a glove. Very flattering in all the right places. Conceals the tummy, and gives a good hourglass figure. Great material that is heavy enough to conceal imperfections. I particularly like that the arm holes are high enough that my bra isn't showing. This will probably work for all seasons too.

Beautiful yet comfy
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Oct 3, 2013   

Love this dress! Very comfortable, cut and fit very flattering. I wore it to a wedding. Dressed it up with a nice necklace and a beautiful belt. Very versatile. I'm sure I will be wearing this again to a other events just change up the accessories and it will give it a different look. The flair balanced my top heavyness and not so small tummy. I purchased the blue because of it's rich color. Not too short and age appropriate.

B-day present
4 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Sep 30, 2013   

This dress caught my mom's eye while searching Nordstrom.com. I ordered it for her as a birthday present in cobalt blue. When she received it it fit perfectly and she's very happy with it. She really likes the shoulder cut.

Not as nice as the photo
3 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Sep 25, 2013   

I'm having to return this dress, which I bought in Cobalt. I think it's pretty true to size. My dresses are all either a 4 or 6 and I had read the other reviews that said this ran large, so I got a 4. It technically fits like a glove, but it isn't very flattering. The fabric is quite heavy and I felt like it added pounds to me (I'm 5'5" and 124 lbs). It was also quite unforgiving -- I'd have to suck in my stomach constantly while wearing this, as it showed every bulge in my tummy and through my rib cage. I have another "fit and flare" style that is VERY flattering, but it's lighter weight fabric and perhaps the print helps to camouflage little bulges. I also think a scooped neck would help to balance out the dress more -- this neckline is quite high.

Sunday Best
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Sep 18, 2013   

I'm a seminary student with a curvy figure and this dress is awesome and appropriate for Sunday church, Tuesday chapel or date night. I bought the blue dress and paired it with a white sweater and nude pumps. Will probably put black sweater and black pumps with it for dark fall/winter time. This dress is so flattering and I felt like a little girl putting on my favorite dress for church when I wore it the first time. Great thing about this dress is someone with a large bust doesn't have to worry about the girls falling out or offending anyone. This is that rare conservative yet sexy look. Yay!

Pretty feminine dress

First time I've purchased from the Elija J line. I'm very pleased.. I will definitely look at this line of dresses from now on.

Sassy and sexy!
4 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Sep 15, 2013   

This is a fun, figure flattering dress suitable as work wear for those of us tired of looking...well, tired, at work. It flows nicely and shows a good amount of leg without seeming like it's trying too hard. I am generally a size 6 petite and this was very true to size. Awesome color too!

Beautiful Dress
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Sep 12, 2013   

I bought this dress for a luncheon in Manhattan and it was fabulous. I gained a lot of weight the last 2 years, so I'm a little on the heavy side, I also have that annoying apple shape, so I have a HARD time finding a dress that would look good on me. This one did the trick perfectly, it was perfect for my event and gave me a nice body shape! also was very comfortable. I changed shoes and just wore it the rest of the day after my event! It look very classy and perfect for the occasion

too cute!
4 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Sep 6, 2013   

This dress is adorable! But it does run one whole size larger. I ordered one size smaller and it fits beautifully. The royal blue color is rich and lovely. Definitely a cute dress at a great price point.

Very pretty
4 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Sep 2, 2013   

This dress runs true to Eliza J sizing. I usually wear a 14 got a 12, and now must get the 14. No biggie-the royal blue is gorgeous.

so so dress
2 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Sep 1, 2013   

I ordered a 6 in this dress but it ran very large. the fabric was ok and overall it was just a so so dress. nothing special. I didn't bother exchanging it for a smaller size. I just returned it.

tried it twice
1 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Aug 31, 2013   

I am usually a 2. I ordered this dress in a 2, it was HUGE! I ordered in a 0 petite and still ran big. Too bad, it was a great shade of blue

LOVE IT
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Aug 27, 2013   

Fabric is very comfortable. I probably should have bought a petite, I am 5'4" exactly, but really the fit is just slightly big and in reality is very comfortable. Just an attractive dress.

super cute dress
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Aug 25, 2013   

I really like this dress. I think I will be able to wear it for a lot of occasions. I love the blue. It does fit a bit big so order a size down. Sadly, I need a 0 and the smallest size it comes in is a 2. I will have it tailored at Nordstrom....just a little bit. I think the fit is 'skinnyizing' and adorable.

Tora
1 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Aug 23, 2013   

Received this dress yesterday. Ordered it in red. Did not even try it on because the dress is more orange than red. I can't wear the color orange so I'm going to return the dress today.

I feel like a princess in this dress. Flirty, feminine, and comfortable. I would wear this dress for any occasion....a night on the town, happy hour, dinner, and maybe an afternoon wedding or reception. Love the color, love the feel.

My Perfect Little Blue Dress
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Aug 19, 2013   

We all need a little black dress....and a little blue dress! This dress is perfect to wear to church, a luncheon or dinner. I love the simple style with the updated cap sleeves and skater skirt. This style is on trend without being too trendy. I plan on wearing with simple black heels so all the focus will be on the the dress. The notes say to size down and that's what I did. I normally wear a 4 and got a size 2 and it fits perfectly.

strange on the backside
2 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Aug 9, 2013   

This is very very cute from the waste up. The skirt is very thick material which makes it flare out in the front, which could be forgivable if that was the only issue. The problem for me is how it looks on the derrière. I am a thin fit woman with a nice round bottom and the skirt sticks out so utterly ridiculously far, because of the cut and thickness of material, when I tried it on the day it arrived, my girlfriends laughed historically.
