What shoppers are saying

Although this summery dress has only received a handful of reviews, shoppers love how versatile, comfortable and flattering it is.

"Bought this in black and I couldn't be happier. The fit is great, and I love the elastic waist," raves a Nordstrom shopper. "It's very flattering, as I am postpartum this dress did the trick. Easy to dress up or down too.

"This dress is so classic and comfortable. It’s stretchy, hangs nice and the fabric doesn’t wrinkle which is a huge bonus. You can also dress it up or down, so it's a summer staple!" writes another reviewer.

"I'm so grateful that this dress exists! I have been scouring the internet looking for a dress that is appropriate for many occasions, cute, and something that I could wear on a regular basis and this is it," says another. "It's extremely comfortable and seems like something I'll be able to wear in the hot summers without being suffocated. I love it!"

However, some shoppers warn that the sleeves can easily slide off your shoulders.

"The fabric is thin and light, which is fine, but because it is so light the sleeves felt like they would slip off my shoulders at any moment," explains a shopper. "I suppose you could wear it off the shoulder, but that was not the look I was going for."

"This was almost a perfect dress! The shoulders fit big, so they kept sliding off. I would order a size down to prevent this. Otherwise what a great dress!" says another.

"I wanted to love it but the shoulders kept falling off," adds another shopper.

The verdict

If you're looking for a stylish and versatile frock to wear this summer, Nordstrom's ASTR The Label Tiered Short Sleeve Dress is just the ticket. Its "soft and light" fabric will keep you cool in sweltering temperatures, but you may want to size down to prevent the puff sleeves from falling off your shoulders.
