It's not every day that a clothing brand creates a dress just for you. While that hasn't happened for me yet, it did happen recently for my friend Jennifer at Makobi Scribe! Karina Dresses created the Jenny just for Jennifer, and seeing how we share the same name and love of Karina Dresses, I knew that I had to review it this month when I went to Cozumel!
The Jenny dress by Karina Dresses is sleeveless with a sweetheart v-neckline that is slightly crossed in the front for nice coverage of your chest while still showing a little bit of skin, and it swings at the bottom to create a nice definition in the waist.
It's knee length, even on me, the little shorty that I am! One of my issues with ordering my Karina Dress each month is finding one that won't be too long for my tastes, and the Jenny is perfect - it hits me right at the knee, which is exactly how I like my dresses to fall.
It is available in almost every size possible: X/S fits sizes 0-4 / S/M fits sizes 6-10 / M/L fits sizes 12-16 / X/L fits sizes 16-20.
The Jenny dress by Karina Dresses ranges in price from $99 to $158, depending on the pattern. This is a brand new style, so there may be additional patterns coming in the future, but right now the Jenny is offered in the following patterns: Black with Neutral Dots, Black with White Pin Dots, Holiday Paisley, Scarlet Poppy and Floral Splash.
Like all Karina Dresses, the Jenny is machine washable, and you just hang it to air dry – it never needs ironing or dry cleaning, and will always be wrinkle-free because of the blend of rayon/polyester. This no-ironing, never-wrinkle feature is what makes Karina Dresses my go-to clothing whenever I travel.
I always throw a few Karina Dresses in my suitcase when I am packing, because no matter where I am headed, I can always make a dress by Karina Dresses work for the occasion! While on my recent cruise to Cozumel, my Jenny by Karina Dresses was the perfect dress to wear on my shore excursion with one of my favorite travel companions, Stefani from MommyMusings.com!
While all Karina Dresses are specifically made to flatter women with a specific body shape, the Jenny by Karina Dresses is actually created for every body shape except for Apple. This makes it the perfect dress for almost anyone!
The Karina Dresses Best Fit Guide:
Triangle ~ fuller hips, smaller top
Inverted Triangle ~ broader shoulders or fuller bust with smaller hips
Rectangle ~ hips, bust and waist are similar size
Oval ~ waist and bust are same size with smaller hips
Hourglass ~ curvaceous , full hips and bust
Karina Dresses as so versatile, they're really the perfect dress. You can dress them up with heels and accessories, throw on a cardigan or blazer to make them extra office-appropriate, or just pair them with sandals for a casual and comfortable, but still put-together daytime look.

That dress is absolutely gorgeous. I am always looking for stylish dresses like that to wear in the summer time, too, so I will head over there.
That's a great style for you. You've chosen the perfect fit and color. And you're in Cozumel!! I have friends who scuba there once a year and they love it!
That dress is perfect! I love how it is flattering, colorful, and not too clingy. Since becoming a mommy I have found myself wearing my clothing a bit a more loose than I used to. It's hard to find stylish dresses that aren't stuck to your body and uncomfy.
We haven't seen a dress from Karina that we haven't liked. This one is no exception!
Never heard of this style/brand of dress but it does look comfy.
That dress is so flattering! I love the paisley print and colors.
I need a trip away! I love that dress (and the view from Cozumel!).
That dress is adorable and perfect for a tropical trip! I love to wear dresses, but I never know what style looks best on me, the tips about shapes really helps out. I want one of these dresses!
What a gorgeous dress! Every Karina dress that I've seen looks amazing.. the cuts, the material, the patterns! You sure know how to rock them too 😉

That dress looks so good on you. Love the colors and pattern!
Nice dress! It’s really great to feel loved by a clothing brand and to imagine that they will actually go to the extent of making a dress especially tailored for you. 🙂
I love the no-wrinkle aspect of them- that is AWESOME. Can every piece of clothing be like that, please?
I love this dress. I am going to get one for myself. So stylish and cute. thanks for sharing

I love this piece. The print reminds me of India and it falls beautifully.
Love the colors and pattern! Definitely a plus for wrinkle-free...makes it perfect for travel
OK, so I have to admit, I was LUSTING after your butt the entire cruise because those dresses look AMAZING on you. The red polka dot one is my favorite and I'm REALLY bummed out we didn't get a picture in our polka dot dresses together. Next time? Please? Come to think of it, I need to come to the MIA and crash your party so we can go to the Bettie Page store and hang out on Souf Beach after a trip to Versailles Cafe. Sound good?
You looked so fabulous and put together every day on that cruise! You know what else? You looked comfortable, too! I was jealous! Thanks for introducing me to Karina Dresses!
I like that they offer a style fit guide. I think that is so helpful! And, I love the paisley print!
Love the dresses! They look good! 🙂

Such a pretty dress! I often have trouble finding dresses that fit my body type, but I think this style would. Checking them out now!
That dress looks great on you! I need to update my wardrobe!
I haven't purchased from Karina Dresses, but this dress is so cute. I need more dresses for going to work so I'll have to check them out! I love that they have a variety of sizes, too. That's always helpful. You look great in the Jenny dress!!
that dress looks so cute on you. It's very figure flattering.
The paisley print is too cute!
That is a great looking dress. It looks fantastic on you!
That dress is really colorful and pretty! You just had to brag about being in Cozumel, didn't you? 😛

I've heard so many great things about Karina Dresses. The Jenny dress looks great on you and I love that pattern. Thanks for the affiliate info, I think I'm going to sign up!
What a fabulous new pattern! Thanks for sharing it. I'm looking forward to the Jenny now. 🙂

What a great looking dress. It can be hard to find something the right length when you're short. The length on this one looks just right.
This dress looks so comfy! You are absolutely gorgeous in it!!
So fun and looks comfortable.
Very cute dress. I love the pop of red in it. It's very flattering.
I seriously think I could live in this dress. Love it!
The dress is gorgeous on you! I'm really curious about their other designs now. Love that they're thought out for curvy women in all shapes and sizes <3
The Jenny dress absolutely perfect on you! The colors are beautiful, too!!
This is a fabulous dress. It looks lovely on you!!!
Just got back from Cancun myself, would have loved to come home in this. The vee cut is perfect on you and would be perfect on me too
I'm a 60- something wife, mother and grandmother who still wants to look good for her husband. We are going to Italy this summer and I do not want to take too many clothes, just ones I will feel beautiful in and this is such a style and color! I love it on you and I think it would still flatter me, too!
This dress should have been named after you- it fits you to a T! Def looks great on the beach as well!!
you look so amazing
this is one of their best dresses!
I really like the pattern on this dress, it's fun and funky! Looks great on you!
I LOVE this dress on you, it's so fun and cute! The pattern is bright and cheery, but not TOO bright. Looks great! 🙂
How did the material feel when you were in the hot sun? Did it tend to hold in the heat? I love how it looks on you- so stylish!
you look so great
Stunning! That dress looks perfect on you.
I love this dress. Its colors are beautiful and I adore the larger paisley patters. I can see myself in this outfit. Im hoping to go to the beach this summer and I think it would be perfect as a 'coverup" too
Paisley is so feminine, I love it!
So, does Karina have flash sales on dresses like the one you are wearing? I'd love to be able to get one of the current ones at 50% off!
I just love the colors and the design on this dress!! I would wear this one for sure!! Very pretty.
This may be my favorite Karina dress so far. Love the paisley print, & it looks really nice on you. I do prefer my dresses to hit a little below the knee since I have funny looking legs, too muscular for short dresses.
This dress is as cute as a button on you! Lovely!!!
THIS WOULD BE MY FAVORITE...SO PRECIOUS..PERFECT FOR SUMMER AND BEACH OR FUN TIME ..BEACH IS BEAUTIFUL IN PIC 🙂
