Zero stretch but lovely fabrication. Very low neckline.
Interesting waist detail.

It fits small and it is very long. I could not wear it but a beautiful dress.

Perfect mix of structured and sun dress!
The top part is a bit skimpy and the straps hang low.

Arrived w/significant damage to the straps, but customer service promptly credited my account.
Dress fit well, but was even a little long & I'm 5' 9". The fabric is heavy and just looked much more streamline on the photo. I didn't wear it, but probably wouldn't have chosen it again.

Not as classy as the picture
First, I am petite, 5'3 and 100lbs, so part of the problem is that this dress is just not meant for petites. The size 2 was way too big for me. The shoulder straps would need to be 2 inches shorter and the length was not at all flattering. But also, i don't think the dress would fall right even if it fit well. The line of sheer paneling down the front does not lay flat. It creates a fold that sticks straight out the front. I'm bummed and trying to find another dress before the event.

Stunning dress
I received this dress as a back-up when the second size for my original order was not available. I loved it and wore it to the rehearsal dinner for a wedding this weekend. I received so many compliments, felt like a million bucks. It's definitely snug in the chest area, I'm really only an A-cup and it felt a little tight so probably could have ordered the 6 instead of the 4. A really elegant and simple dress with a flattering cut that makes you stand out in a crowd. Highly recommend.

Stylist Review!
This is a really flattering and sophisticated dress! I would recommend this dress for smaller bust sizes, and I would highly recommend sizing up in backup! It cinches at the waist which made it super flattering! This hit me at the mid calf. Overall I really enjoyed this dress!
