Timely receipt of the dress was excellent!

The fit is true to size and fit beautifully. Loved the length and flow. Would recommend wearing 3-5 inch heels so it won't drag too much.

Beautiful but the back-up dress made me fall in love!
Size worn: 12L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The dress was beautiful and the color incredible, but the just-in-case back-up dress that I ordered stole my heart and this one was sidelined.

This was my first choice dress and I'm sad to say I didn't like what came in the package. Luckily, I had picked out a second dress for insurance! I have broad athletic shoulders, and the arm straps and strap across the back felt tight. I am a 36D, the neckline was too conservative for my taste and made my bust look small. The length was a little long (I'm 5'8") in heels. But mostly, I was disappointed with the material itself. The silk jersey looked much more jersey than silk. If one were to wear this I would strongly recommend considering pairing with serious shape-wear.

This was my backup dress, it was pretty but I didn't think it was stunning. It was confusing to get on and both my husband and friend said that they couldn't figure out what was happening in the front when I had it on. The back of the dress is beautiful! I normally wear a 10 and thought that it might not fit but it was fine.
