Perfect fall/winter floral

This dress is perfect for a dinner date because there is a slight overlay under the bust. It wasn't unflattering, though because it's got a built-in elastic. No Spanx needed in this dress! If you're busty, the dress will show lots of cleavage (as you can see), but I was still able to wear a plunge bra without it showing. I'm 5'7" and this was a midi length but worked with heels. Wouldn't recommend for flats.

Comfortable and flowing.

I'd say this dress was a generous true to size, slightly big/loose but not terribly so. Beautiful fabric but I didn't love the print. I wore it with knee high black boots and silver jewelry for a less dressy look. I would rent this again.

Frumpy and ill fitting

I usually love ALC, but between the pattern of this dress (it reminded me of curtains from the 90s), the low neckline, and the large waist, it just was a HUGE NO for me. If the pattern were different and the fit a bit more streamlined, I might like it better.

ALC Floral

The fit of this dress is definitely more forgiving that flattering. The ruffles below the bust obscure the waistline which is great if you want to have a big meal in it, but not so great if you want to appear to have a shape. Fabric feels really lovely and luxurious and the print is really beautiful. Length was somewhere between midi and maxi on me ( I'm a little over 5'5").

Beautiful dress but the zipper...

The dress was great and could easily be dressed up or dressed down. The zipper though... be prepared to spend a few minutes zipping it up. Not the easiest thing to get on.

Fun for a low key baby shower

Winter florals with a+ cleavage. Just my style. LOTS of ruffles, but didn't make me feel like a cake.

Valentine's Day Fun

Very plungey! Safety pinned the back to adjust amount of cleavage. It fits the tightest at the chest, where the zipper is. Was a little work to zip it up. That said, roomy around the waist while still giving nice definition. The fit is imperfect but still looked great and was comfortable enough.

Great winter floral

I had my engagement dinner in this and loved it. I am generally a 2 in other brands but always a 4 in ALC. I think you could totally wear this dress to a wedding! I loved the way everything hung and the plunge was not very deep!

The dress was so flattering and fit perfectly. Puff sleeve detail was another great addition.

Loved the criss cross at the front too. I got so many compliments

Country Western Stevie Nicks

I love this dress. It's got a dark boho vibe that went great with my tall gray Frye boots. The front is low cut, but easily pinned or taped if you're feeling semi-modest. The side zipper is a little tricky, but manageable. The best part is the feather peplum element, which is great if you're feeling self-conscious about your stomach.

Chic as can be.

I absolutely love this but it does run on the smaller side. The 14 was a snug fit, especially in the chest. I am heavy chested... it fit really well everywhere else though!

Winter wedding rehearsal dinner

I rented this for a rehearsal dinner in December, so the sleeves, length, and color were perfect! I didn't care much for the frill around the waist and ended up tucking it in to the band to hide it. Still loved it and got lots of compliments!

Gorgeous but runs small!

Dress is stunning and super flattering, but runs small. Zipper got up with help but was unable to zip up all the way by myself

I didn't want to send it back!

Beautiful dress. Great fit, loved the way it flowed. It has a bit of cleavage but I used fashion tape. I wore it for my birthday and I felt gorgeous!

No event!

I didn't wind up wearing this because I thought it looked frumpy on me. The print and fabric are pretty, but the cut is a little mother of the bride.

Flowy and flattering

This dress totally exceeded expectations and looks much better in person and on! I already really love this brand, so that helped in terms of knowing what size to get, but the length is great and the pattern is beautiful. The silhouette is very flattering and loved the flow and movement of the dress. Got a lot of compliments on it and would definitely recommend or rent again!

Perfect fit, great look for everyday or a low-key event

I love this dress! I wanted to get outside my comfort zone a bit, and this dress was perfect. It's VERY true to size, this is a 4 to the T, but definitely has room in the sleeves and skirt but the bodice zips RIGHT up nice and snug. I would recommend sizing up if you are unsure just because of how close the zipper zips up, and it's a loose fit anyway. It's definitely more low cut than I anticipated, I still wore it to work but my work environment is VERY casual. Perfect for a casual day at the office if you need to go somewhere after work. So cute!!!

Sexy but appropriate

Loved this dress! Wore it to a friends engagement party and felt immediately done without much effort. Simple black pump and gold earrings is all you need + a little sticky tape to make sure the girls don't come out to party.

It was really sexy while being really pretty. It is very low cut - for me - so either flaunt or not.

The image was more drapey where i styled this more form fitting, which worked really well for my figure.
