Stylish and flattering

I'm curvy so it was a little short, but it hugged in all the right places. Really loved it!

Sophisticated & Fun

Worked for a date night. I liked it because it isn't a style I'd normally buy, but it was fun to wear for a night. Was tighter on the bottom than I would have liked, and still loose on top, so fit could be a challenge for pear shape.

A bit short, but great dress.

I was contemplating making this dress a blouse due to the short length.

Elegant on top, too short and tight on the bottom for my hourglass shape

The neckline and top of the dress was elegant and the material was a rich black and felt lovely. Unfortunately, the bottom half of the dress was tight and shorter than I expected. I have strong legs and a round butt and it wasn't really my taste. But if you like shorter length and have less of a curvy shape, it would likely be a great look. I'm not really sure a larger size would have compensated for the length. Just more of a blouses to

Classy and flattering! !

Wore this dress for a casual night out. I'm 5'7, and while it's a tad short, it's super flattering and comfortable. Got lots of compliments. Simple and no-frills classy.

Really cute shape.

Gives your body a nice hourglass shape but very short dress to wear to work because I'm only 5 foot tall and wore tights.

New haircut

This dress is well made and has an interesting cut, however, it is way too short! I am completely unable to sit. Otherwise, a pretty dress

Perfect for petites

If you're my height, this is perfect. It's so hard to find good petite dresses that aren't too long.

Not for the big boobed

This would be pretty on someone skinny. My boobs filled out the whole top which is supposed to be loose, so the skirt barely covered my butt. Not a good look on me. Returned without wearing.

Love the silhouette but weird fit

I really love the top of this dress- good zipper, nice drape- but the top and the bottom are completely different sizes. The bottom was quite tight (and very short if it did) so I couldn't wear it at all. Maybe someone with more of a straight shape would be a great fit, but as someone who's pear/hourglass, it just didn't work at all.

Loved this dress. The fabric drapes beautifully and is very unique. The bottom part of the dress is very fitted, so bear that in mind when selecting what to wear underneath. I paired this dress with tights and over the knee boots for a work event and received many compliments.

Sexy and short, but classy at the same time. I wore cut-out tights with it. Very comfortable and got a lot of compliments

Great LBD

I wore this to a funeral with sheer black hose and mid-calf booties. I rated this as TRUE TO SIZE, because if you googled this dress and read ALC's sizing specs, it was spot on. I typically wear a 4 and 6 in a lot of dresses. But I do always read measurements. It's was clear my hips were not going to work in the 4-6 so I chose an 8. I'll admit I was a bit nervous but the fit was perfect and the dress was so comfortable. Yes, it was short, but I hate that work length. It either needs to be short or mid-calf for me. Wear hose with it made me feel even more comfortable about the length especially since I wore it to a funeral. But this would be a great going out dress... NO HOSE. I absolutely loved this and would rent it again.
