Jamak's Note: Designed and tailored to fit every shape including pear shapes. This dress features a bodice and skirt joined with a waist band to accommodate not only women who wear the same size on top and bottom but also pear shape women who wear a different size on top and who have a hard time finding shift dresses. In addition the dress is made in several panels for perfect fit and easy alterations. We recommend this dress for every shape. Takes you from the office to the board room and after 5 events. A true investment piece in your wardrobe.
