Low cut neckline!

Fits true to size, however neckline is low cut and if you're busty like me - be prepared for cleavage. Couldn't wear it to work for that reason. Black halo is an overrated brand and very inconsistent with their sizing.

Beautiful color, fun style, big on bust

I love everything about this dress, however, perhaps it's meant for someone who's bustier. I'm a 34C and I had to keep pulling up the front of the dress.

Nice color but was not comfortable

My behind is plump so it got but snug around the hips. Did not wear.

Beautiful color and lovely shape!

The color of this dress is really beautiful! The sleeves are very classy and it is a feminine cut. It is body hugging and has a bit of stretch, but not much. If you have a larger chest, it may be too low cut- but for me it worked well. Will rent again!

Top of dress too large

I ordered a size up in this dress as I normally do with Black Halo. The dress fit great through the body, but the shoulders and top were very large. I'm a 34C, so filling out the chest wasn't a problem, but the shoulders gaped awkwardly and were clearly too big. But, if I sized down the dress would probably be too tight over my hips and stomach. Too bad, because the color is beautiful and the shoulder detail is really pretty.

Low cut and too tight

Wanted to love this, but it was too tight. I'd suggest sizing up if you have any curves.

Too low cut

Probably fine if you don't have too much cleavage but if you're a C or bigger this is too low cut for work. Too bad because I liked the cut of the rest of the dress.

Really pretty but runs small

This dress is really pretty, love the sleeves. I always wear a size 4/6 but have learned to size up in case of brand running small. So I typically get a 6. I could not even zipper around waist. I do want to wear this dress so I am going to try the next size up and hope for the best.

Loved the lilac color

Great fabric, color and detail on the shoulders. Got lots of compliments. While i didn't feel uncomfortable with the décolleté, i agree with other reviewers that the dress doesn't hide the womxn on the balcony. ;)

A little too tight but great work dress!

I loved the color of this dress and the sleeves. The top was a little too tight but I made it work for a day at the office!

Ended up buying this dress!

The fit on this dress is so perfect for me! I rented it for work and quickly discovered it is a little too low cute for work, so I ended up wearing it to a Fundraiser function. It is very formfitting and the color is truly beautiful...there was a professional photographer there that night and I sadly did not get a photo. :( My man loved it so much, he actually asked me to purchase it so I could wear it more often, so I did.

Wore it two days in a row.

I loved this. I loved it so much I wanted to wear it again the next day. I happened to have court in a different county so nobody even knew I was rolling in the same dress as yesterday. I paired it with a grey blazer.

.

Loved this dress. If you have big bust it can be a little low cut but I wore an unlined bra with this and it worked out fine.

Great for work.

So pretty! Perfect for springtime in Chicago!! Ordered an 8 because 6 wasn't available, but was glad to have the 8 in the end as it fits nicely around my curves. A 6 would be too small. Neck is open but doesn't plunge so far as to show cleavage. Love it!!!!

Pretty dress, too small.

I'm usually a six, sometimes a four. The six was too small overall.

Nice dress

I liked this dress! I thought it was a little tight, but I wouldn't say it runs small. I wish I had gotten a 4 instead of a 2, but the length was great for my height. If your short it'll probably hit you at a weird spot on your shins.

compliments on compliments on compliments

I don't think I've ever received so many compliments about a dress from colleagues before. Everyone liked the color and the sleeves are so interesting. It wrinkles along the lap fairly easily so I tried to use my standing desk as much as possible. True to size with little wiggle room. Definitely putting this one in the rotation—still too $$ to buy.

I did not wear this dress for my event.

I rented this for a baby shower, but it was not very flattering on my figure. The folds in the sleeves would not stay the way they were supposed to and it felt a little paper baggish on my figure.
