dress arrived with a couple problems so I did not wear it
The black part in the middle looked like it had been re-stitched and was higher than it looks on the model. Also, the lining was rolled up and had about 2 inches showing at the bottom of the dress. Other reviewers said that the top was big but it was tight on me and baggy around the belly. Overall it just looked sloppy so I didn't wear it. I waited until the day after it arrived to try it on so it was too late to send it back for a credit or replacement dress.

A business look that was professional sexy and elegant.
I needed a dress for head shots and a professional look for my business's website. I loved that the dress was conservative yet contemporary at the same time! I'm usually a 4 in size but this size 2 fit very nicely. It has material that stretches, so it pulled in my stomach and created a nice silhouette.

Didn't get a chance to wear it.
Dress fit true to size, but was loose in the bust area. The dress is overall really comfortable to wear and the cut was really nice.

Great dress for work event
Loved this dress, very flattering. But like other reviews said, you definitely need some tape to hold the dress in place by your chest. I am a C and I was falling out of it all day.

Great Dress!
Goes easily from the office to any after work event. Fit was perfect. Fabric was soft and comfortable, there is a slight amount of stretch in the skirt. I could see the need for a small amount of fashion tape long the bust line, I did not use any and I did not have any issues. Only issue I had was when I tried the dress on for fit I noticed that the slip had been previously torn in two small places on the inside and was causing the slip to fall out longer than the skirt. I was able to safety pin them up, which then brought the slip up and everything looked great.

There's a reason why this dress is so popular!
Due to the popularity of this dress, it does not come without any problems. I thought this dress would be great for a work event and it was. Unfortunately I had to really doctor it up a bit. Something I was not prepared to do on the morning of. I had to use so much double sided tape just to affix the hem and even a little bit of tape on the sash around the waist. The sash was sagging when I put the dress on. As for the other comments about having to affix the top, that part is true. That was the easiest of all for me to fix. Instead of double sided tape I just put on a camisole and that took care of the top part of the dress. After all the work to repair the issues of the dress, I was happy with the dress and on lookers were non-the-wiser to all of the double sided tape I was wearing.

Nice dress for a work holiday party
I wore this to my husband's Christmas party and got a ton of compliments. The dress fit well in the hips and waist but ran LARGE in the top (and I am top heavy). I had to use fashion tape to keep the super low plunge from being inappropriate.

Beautiful dress and perfect for the occasion!
My best friend wore this dress for her sorority initiation. It looked great on her and fit great. The color complemented her skin tone very well and was very slimming at the waist. She is small busted (34A) but has wider hips. The dress was a little tight on the bottom so it looked a little stretched but she still looked amazing! She would definitely recommend this dress for any formal occasion!

Cute dress but...
You definitely need double sided tape with this dress! It was cute but not worth the trouble of making it stay in place.

Ran Huge for my frame
Very disappointed, the dress was too big, and kind of worn out, the lining has come loose from so many wears, it sagged away from the hem of the dress

So cute but not for a pear
The fabric on this dress was fantastic and I can tell it is a great work party kind of dress if you have the right body type. Unfortunately, I do not. I sized up to get a 6 and an 8 and even in the 8 the bottom was really tight (I could have gotten away with wearing it but it was really too tight on my thighs) the top was more plunging on me than pictured here, and a little too loose for me. Would be better for someone with a longer torso than I have.

Sleek Versitle Dress
I agree with the other reviews. The dress fits loosely in the top and definitely needs fashion tape. The skirt is fitted but comfortable as it has great stretch - you don't necessarily need Spanx with this one. I also rented a Tibi dress which i ended up wearing instead only because I have a short torso and the top didn't fit as well as I wanted.

Sleek and polished
Wore this dress for a day of business meetings in LA which transitioned into drinks that night. Will agree with other reviewers that the top was a bit roomy, I needed double sided tape to hold it closed, but it was well worth it, it was very sleek and even a little sexy while still being 100% appropriate. Comfortable fabric with a touch of stretch.

Small size 10
I loved the dress. It looks better on arrival than the picture. However, I wear a size 10 normally but this ran small. The 'spandex' like skirt ran tight. Wish it could have been a 12!

Bottom runs small and top runs large. Would work for a bustier woman with narrow hips, especially with long torso! Very cute though, great for career
