Exceeded my expectations

I was sent this gown when the gown I picked didn't come in on time. I didn't pick it so I was nervous, but I fell absolutely in love with it. I wore it to a military ball and I got so many compliments on how it looked good on me. Warning : the material rubbed my nipples a bit but it was worth it

Gorgeous dress and true to size! No cons unless you are concerned about the deep plunge.

Lots of complements on this elegant gown!

This dress makes you feel like a modern-day princess. It hugs your body in all of the right places and flows like liquid gold. The dress is fairly heavy, but I was comfortable in it on a hot summer evening. The only issue I had with the size was in the straps. They were too long for me and there was a bit of gaping in the back, so I had to tug at it throughout the night to keep it flat. This also resulted in the bodice falling pretty low and I had to keep checking to make sure my nubra wasn't showing. This requires a nubra or similar strapless/plunging bra as there is no support in the cups. Regardless, I received many complements on how elegant and stunning the gown was and how it made me look!

Stylist Review

This style fit true to size, I would recommend sizing up for the backup because although the fabric has some stretch it is tight across the bust and midsection. It should be worn without a bra or with a NuBra and seamless panties or spanx wouldn't be a bad idea! This style is best for the following body types Hourglass, Athletic, Petite, Straight & Narrow. I am 5'7 wearing 3 inch heels and the regular length is hitting the floor.

Gorgeous dress but runs very small.

Gorgeous, elegant, very slimming. I wasn't able to wear it because it ran too small -- One size up would have been perfect.

Beautiful and high quality but not great for short torsos

I rented this for a black tie wedding. I didn't wear it because the straps were too long on me (I'm 5'6 but have a torso on the short side). It was beautiful and high quality. It is pretty fitted on the midsection so be aware!

Simple, Beautiful, and Low Cut

This dress is beautiful and I really loved it. However, the dress was too low cut for my liking. If the straps were just a 1/2 inch shorter, this dress would have been perfect. At 5'2, the straps were just a little too long and loose. I ended up returning for another dress.

Peak a boo

The front hangs down too low and need a lot of tape to make sure this stays G-rated. Decided against wearing it to the event cause I would have been hiking it up all night.
