This is a beautiful dress in a not so beautiful color. If it were offered in several other colors it would be perfect for so many things. Mother of the bride dress doesn't work as it is too close to the color of most wedding dresses. Could you come up with several other options?

It's a beautiful dress . Bought it for my daughters wedding in May. It looks very elegant . The size does run small especially the bust area. I normally wear a size 12 and I ordered a 16. It was very long I'm 5'6". The zipper gets caught easy on the fabric. The color is nice I'm just not that sure about it. It's a little drably to me. My daughter like it on me. I will keep looking to see if I find something else that wows me more before I make my final decision.

Comments about Jessica Howard Bolero Jacket Dress:

The Dress is beautiful, I normally wear a 9 in dresses, and ordered a 12 for this dress. It fit perfect. I'm 5'3" so it was a little long for me so will need to have it hemmed up. Bought for my daughter's upcoming Wedding in Oct. I'm excited to show it off. The zipper is a little bit if a problem but not horrible. Just need to get past the pleats. I would highly recommend this dress.

    Comments about Jessica Howard Bolero Jacket Dress:

    I ordered this dress to wear to my daughter's upcoming wedding. The quality and cut were outstanding, but I found the bust to be too small for my build - a problem I don't usually have with clothing. While the dress was stunning, and my husband loved the look of it, I couldn't imagine spending all day feeling like my bust was bound. Sadly, I am returning this beautiful dress. And yes, the zipper is very difficult to get through the rusching on the bust but otherwise I had no other issues with the gown other than the small bust. The dress was a size 14 and I wear a 38C bra, for reference. Hope it works for someone else!

      Exchanged for larger size with no problems. Needed more room in the bust area next size up is perfect! The look I received from my daughter & friends when trying on for the first time was breath taking! Excited to wear at her wedding in the fall. Delivery was as expected packaging proper.

          The dress is so beautiful. I wish it would have come in an 18 or w 16. I think I would have been the best dressed at any function I wear it to.

          Thank you for fast the delivery service.

          I will be wearing the dress in my wedding. I like the way the dress fits my body and falls just right. The only thing that make me a little concerned was the sleeves of the jacket. but I will only have it on for a little while. I absolutely love the outfit.

            Comments about Jessica Howard Bolero Jacket Dress:

            Bought this dress for daughter's wedding. It was well made (zipper hard to zip near pleating) but color was wrong for what we were looking for. The bust area ran tight for me (I'm a D cup) but all else fit perfectly and it was very figure flattering, jacket on or off. Very comfortable. Sadly, it was returned. Still looking.

            Comments about Jessica Howard Bolero Jacket Dress:

            The only problem I found with this gown was its zipper and how it fit on the upper back. I loved the look of the gown so very much that I tried just about everything to get the zipper to work correctly. I wanted it that much to wear at a wedding where my husband and I are to be Readers at a friend's wedding. Hopefully, this difficulty will not dissuade others wanting to purchase it as it is a simply gorgeous gown for both younger and older women.
            The gown was in perfect shape when it arrived as are most of Dillard's deliveries. I just wish it had worked out better for me as I think it is a beautiful piece of fabric used on the bodice, skirt and jacket.
