Loved it! fit perfectly. absolutely in love with the back. True to size, I have bigger legs and a bigger butt and wasn't tight at all around the legs.

I loved this dress. The color is beautiful and the drapping was gorgeous. It was the most comfortable dress I have ever worn! I ended up wearing the smaller of the two sizes that I ordered, but they both fit very well since the material was flowing, but very stretchy. I am 5'5 and it landed about an inch, maybe two above my knee which was perfct for me. The back was beautiful and I was able to use a low back converter on one of my regular bras. Since I am rather busty a bra is a MUST for me and I was afraid that the back would be too low, but it was perfect. The only word of caution that I would offer is that if you are looking to show off your curves this dress does not do that. I would also have to say that because of the loose draping this dress is not as flattering when you are standing completely still in front of the mirror, but very flattering while sitting and moving around the room socializing. I paired this dress with lots of shiny silver and some grays. I wore this to a wedding and it was wonderful, but it would also work very well for events a little less formal if the acessories were toned down. This dress was so comfortable I would highly recommend it!!

Dress was fine, a little heavy from the fabric. I didn't end up wearing this one because it didn't look right on my body. The back looks a lot lower than it really is. I bought a stick on bra (one of the backless ones) to wear with this dress, but i could have worn a regular bra with it.

i kept getting compliments about the color and that it looked very flapper-esq

Wore this to my brother's wedding where I was a bridesmaid. The fit was loose everywhere except for the stretchy band around the waist and did not accentuate my curves, which was a minus, but then rejoiced over because the weather was pretty hot and humid, which was a plus, so it evened out. The drape in the back was beautiful, and it did not overwhelm me regarding length, which I owe in part to the 5" platform heels I wore to sassy this dress up.

As the wedding coordinator, this dress had me perfectly coordinated yet fashionable!

While the dress was incredibly comfortable, it probably wasn't the best color for my complexion. The fit is also not very flattering, but the style is totally chic.

I didn't end up wearing this. It doesn't really show in the picture, but it didn't lay smooth on my body. You could see every lump! I really like it though, the style, the color...if it had just not shown every flaw it would have worked just fine...
