Product Review: Banana Republic Sloan Sheath Dress

I had been eyeing the Sloan Sheath Dress for a while, and decided to splurge and buy it yesterday. I am not disappointed. At $140, it is not a dress you just buy on a whim. I avoided trying it on for months, but as soon as I did, I was sold. Never have I tried on a dress that is so figure flattering. In a thick fabric with 5% spandex, the dress hugs your body and moves with you without losing its structure. The length hits me just above the knee, making it ideal for work or interviews. It is a versatile dress than can be worn from desk to dinner, which helps justify the price.

The dress comes in regular, petite, and tall sizes. Regular sizes are available in 0-16, and come in black or red-orange. Petite sizes can be purchased in 00-14, and come in black or hot-pink. Tall sizes are only available in sizes 2-16 in black. Some reviews say the dress runs small, but myself and the majority of others believe that it is true to size. To be safe, go in store and try it on before purchasing.

The only negative to this dress is that it is dry clean only. While this is slightly inconvenient, the dress is not something I will be wearing everyday, so the extra care should not be a problem. Overall, I think the Sloan Sheath Dress is a great addition to any young woman’s wardrobe.
