Very sexy, but I agree with the previous poster that the ruching adds bulk on a small frame. Loved wearing it, bet it looks even better on a curvy girl.

Maybe I should have gotten the smallest size but it was large in random areas. I could not wear it. I was very disappointed.

Beautiful color. Quality fabric. Sexy length and details. I did not feel the ruching was flattering for my body type- the extra fabric created a gut. I think it would look great on a curvy body type though.

This dress is super sexy. I got tons of compliments the night I wore it. Ruching is very flatterin. It looks a little more navy than purple to me.
