So chic! I usually wear a size 4 but in hindsight I should have selected a size 2. Still it was such an amazing (and comfortable) dress to wear and sparked a number of compliments. More than anything I loved the back! Such a fun, dramatic way to make an exit.

Chic and original

Dress a little large for a 4. If you're between a 2 and 4 like me, I recommend the 2. Fit is very comfortable. Photographs beautifully. Lots of compliments, especially on the tulle and velvet train. Feel your inner black swan!

Absolutely fantastic dress!

Size worn: 42
Overall fit: True to Size

I wore this to a black tie event and couldn't have been happier. It fit perfectly and was very comfortable . Elegance and comfort in one dress. Being petite I wasn't sure what the length would be but it was perfect.

I had to send it back....bust was WAY too small....POO!

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small

I had to send it back....and yes, it was one of the prettiest dresses I've ever seen. The bust was WAY too small. I am a 36-38C, but have a large rib cage. Normally, I wear a 6 or an 8 in formal, but neither size was anywhere close to fitting. Size UP. I was willing to obtain from breathing, but the option wasn't even there.

It was love at first sight. I felt like "Holly Golightly". Very chic & sophisticated. perfect!!!

Size worn: 40
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The description was not accurate. It has no waistline, just darts below bustline. The tulle train in the back is beautiful. The cut would also work for someone wide in the middle section. This dress was my back up, my original dress was damaged and had to be cancelled the day before delivery. Stylist were very accommodating & helpful....... this dress did not disappoint!!

Gorgeous detailing!

I loved this dress, even on the hanger, but I simply couldn't wear it. The dress fit fine except for the underslip which was much tighter then the dress itself and didn't have any give. I was unable to wear the dress because I didn't want to stand all night and sitting would have been difficult. If you have hips and thighs, this might not be the best dress for you. All in all, I'm really bummed because it is beautiful.
