This is my third No. 19, and second since the size grading adjustment. 40D, waist 38.5”, hips 49” and the new XL is great for me, could not be happier. I do like the top bit more fitted (not right but not too loose either). Love these for work and play, forever fan!
Love your dresses! They are comfortable, classic and great for any occasion. I have a dozen of them and wear them year round!
I've been wearing P&S dresses for a few years and always enjoyed the feel and versatility of the linen. The dresses are not only practical and comfortable but also come in very pretty patterns. THIS dress makes me feel elegant. The 3/4 sleeves, boatneck, and length of this style are exactly right for me. I hope this style sticks around for years to come and comes in every delightful new color design dreamt up by P&S.
Slightly smaller but the loveliest of checks
I loved the OG Pyne & Smith navy check so much I have several items in it, and when I saw the St. Ives, I knew I'd love it. The check is slightly smaller, the blue slightly darker and with a slightly different tone, and on a somewhat more natural background. The 19 is one of my favorite styles for feeling a bit fancier, and as I'm doing a lot of public facing work right now, it's nice to have this summery, happy option. I will say it seems to run just a teeny bit smaller than my other 19s, not enough to be a problem for me but something to know if you're between sizes!
I love the St. Ives in the 19! The fit is perfect, and I can easily dress this up! The pattern is just beautiful—the navy is quite deep and the white is so creamy! The pattern will go well with many tights (from left to right, black, deep navy, or blue tights)!
