Beautiful print & just the right amount of skin
OK to wear a bra which is key for bigger chests. Comfortable and perfect for a spring day with a light jacket. Definitely worth every cent paid to rent.

Awesome dress for a wedding
I wore this dress to a wedding. I believe someone else described that it fits like a glove and it most definitely does. The size 4 fit but it was tight and I knew I would want to be comfortable while dancing & eating, so I ended up wearing the size 6. The slit in the front has been sewn up a bit so it is not as revealing as it shows on the model. Overall the dress is extremely flattering and I felt amazing in it!

Loved the dress!
Loved this dress! Very glad I sized up to a 6 (normally wear a 4 in dresses, 5'4" 127 lbs) This dress is not for a very curvy girl (which I am!) It is definitely a snug fit around the hips/butt. I have a small chest (34 B) and even in a 6, I was pretty smashed down in the chest area. Other than that, I loved it.

Beautiful dress, strange fit.
This dress is beautifully made but the fit was all off for me. It was very small in the bust and a 2 barely zipped up the back. Then at the hips it was rather wide. This is definitely built for someone with a small chest and wider hips and order a size up from what you normally where so that it fits. Also the front of the dress is sewn shut in person while it looks open on the model in the photo. I was excited for a kind of 70s look with the low slit but still appropriate for a fancy work event, but in person my options were smushed down flat square boobs or Kim Kardashian cleavage. Neither of which were a good look for me so I ended up not being able to wear it. Also I was terrified I wouldn't be able to eat all night because it was so tight across my stomach.

Gorgeous dress with a beautiful neckline. Unfortunately the size I got was too small in the chest.
Despite being a midi dress, it is actually very figure flattering on a shorter frame. I really wish I could have worn it!

Beautiful.
This dress fit like a glove. The fabric and tailoring are scrumptious. I couldn't tell from the online listing if the pattern was metallic, but it is not, which I was happy about. It looks like a photographic print of city lights on a black background. Very sophisticated.

Show Stopping
I wore this to "The Book of Morman" on Broadway. My husband loved the dress and couldn't take his eyes off me. That night I had an extra boost of confidence because I felt amazing. Truly a fabulous experience.

Hi Angela! Is the dress a little more conservative in the bust than it looks on the model? It looks incredibly low cut on the model, but it looks like you were able to wear a real bra...any input would help! Thank you!!
AngelaJanuary 22, 2014
Yes, the dress is more conservative than the model so I was able to wear a regular bra.
ShirleyFebruary 28, 2014
Hi! How long was this dress on you?
AngelaMarch 10, 2014
Below the knee... but not too long.

VERY small and more conservative than pictured.
This dress runs VERY small. I was not even able to wear it to the event I rented it for. I'm between a size 6 and 8 and the 8 smooshed my B cup into nothing. Also, the front of dress is more conservative than shown. If the fit, well, fit, I would have loved this dress.
MicheleSeptember 11, 2013
was it small in the waist, too or just on top?
MeredithSeptember 13, 2013
conservative how? could you war a bra?
HollySeptember 13, 2013
It was small all around, but especially in the bust area (and I'm not big breasted). I'd say, for example, that if you are a true size 6, the 8 will likely fit. And as far as conservative goes, the photo makes it appear that the front dip is pretty low. It's not. I believe a regular bra could work.
