so nice to have a designer dress on a budget!
It was a little big and often was hard to fit with a bra. the material did not stretch and putting it on over hair was a bit troublesome.

I felt like a princess in this dress!
I wore this dress to the 50th anniversary of my family's company. The dress fit great, however it was a tad bit too long.

Stayed on the hangar ... took the second look I rented out on the town instead.
Rented this for the local news Emmys and wanted to feel like a million bucks. I did not. It did not fit around my hips and was just awkward. Thank goodness I rented a second dress.

Couldn't use this one
I ordered two sizes in this dress. The 40R was HUGE! The 38 was okay, but frankly it looked frumpy. I wore the backup dress instead. BTW, at 5'6", the 38L was too long.

Glam!
Received so many compliments on this dress, it was very elegant. I ordered the longer length and with 3'' heels was still a bit long. Fabric stretches out by the end of the night too.

Beautiful dress!
The color is slightly more blue than green, and is gorgeous. Excellent quality and fit. Highly recommend.

Problematic fit
Tight around the rib cage, but loose in the bust. Consequently, it didn't "hang" well on the bod. There was only one size available, but it wasn't a size issue, it was a proportion issue. Returned it the next day. Too bad, beautiful color.

lovely!
Highly recommend this dress as it is very comfortable to wear yet looks very nice at the same time. As I am quite tall, I have broad shoulders so the one shoulder look was very complementary to my body. Also, the dress does run somewhat large; i would say it would have been a bigger issue if i were petite but the dress really suited my taller frame. I got the long version and it was a great length - it skimmed the floor but i didn't have a train at all. Perfect.

I am a size 6 so took the stylist's recommendation to order the size 40. It was way too big. I think the size smaller would have been perfect.

Color is more muted/understated in person, but it is still a beautiful dress. Side detailing is studded rather than jeweled. Runs very large-I wouldn't recommend this if you are a true hourglass unless you order it a few sized down.
