Thank goodness I had a backup!

I am a true size 16 and this dress in the XL did not fit! Thank goodness I had a backup dress.

Fits large, especially in the chest. Classic and beautiful look if you get the right fit.

Snug snug snug

I got the XL long to close around me. Unfortunately the snaps popped open every time I sat down. I couldn't wear it to the wedding I rented it for. Don't rent if you have a curvy figure.

Pretty but...

If you have hips and boobs this is probably not for you. The buttons would pop open if not careful and the neckline was very low (and having larger breast made it worse). It was a nice stretchy fabric and I did get lots of compliments. I ended up wearing it because the other dress I ordered totally didn't work well. I would recommend this dress to someone not as curvy.

Classy dress. Comfortable & flattering

Based on other reviews I wasn't sure if this would be a good fit given I have full breasts, but I went up in size and it worked out well. Fitted around chest but a little loose around the waist, but not too loose. Lots of compliments and comfortable throughout the night.

Too large in bust for small-chester

Fabric wrinkled easily and top was baggy. May be better for someone with a larger bust.

Supporting a wonderful friend and partying with my husband and friends!

This dress is AH MAZING! I wish I could have rented the petite size because I am short but it still gets 5 stars! The bust of the dress fits perfectly and it's such and elegant yet edgy (in a way) dress. I got several compliments and I felt great ! Rent the dress and thank me later! Lol

Elegant and simple

The Cut was flattering and the overall style was simple yet very elegant. The front is cut low but not inappropriately so.

The dress is nice but while the bust was perfect, the hips cut/shape wasn't ideal.

Not For Short Torso

The waist hits at an odd place on me, causing gaping at the bust. It turns out okay that it didn't get here in time for me to wear it since I'd have to find a replacement anyways! Nice-ish fabric and cute style, worth a wear as long as you don't have a short waist.

N/A

If you have a true hour glass figure the dress will not fit. I'm busty with a 26 inch waist and 40 around the hips. It's hug around the mid section and barely closed around the hips

Versatile and comfortable.

Even though I am 5'8" a regular was almost too long with the flats I wanted to wear with it. I wore it with a rather chunky, pearl necklace to sort of dress it down, which worked out perfect for my occasion. However, this dress could also be worn with something more formal and have a different feel and look.

This is a sack with buttons on it. The photo does not relay what the dress looks like. Hippy Chic is a stretch...

I didn't wear this dress. The fit was a bit snug and the snaps along the side did not seem too secu

I love the look, but the fit and construction of the dress isn't good. The material was low budget.

Stylist Review

A sophisticated look for your next black tie affair! The medium was a perfect fit although I would have liked the long length for my 5'10" height. It is fitted throughout the midsection and the fabric has some stretch. I would recommend sizing up for your back up, especially if you have a fuller bust and hips. Pair with a bracelet to finish off the look!

I was awarded Graduate Student of the Year for Social Work at Howard University! I love dressing up!

I love this designer. I appreciated the length since I'm tall, and the fit was flattering on the mid section, which can be a problem area for me.

More fabulous than my original choice!

I am a true size 12 meaning that I would typically chose a 14 as my backup size and most high end 12's are too snug. That being said, the fit on this was perfect! I am 5'8" but was already planning on wearing a lower heel so it still worked fine. Super flattering neckline. Felt comfortable and sexy while still feeling appropriate. I wish I could buy this dress right now!

I was completely satisfied with this look and fit of this dress.

The dress fit amazing. Length was perfect. I received so many compliments I wish I purchased the dress. This is my new go to site when I have an event.

Great, simple and timeless dress! Comfortable too.

The top Fit perfectly and ended up actually being more covering/conservative than I thought. The length was great and the fabric was comfortable, fitting, without being too unforgiving or tight.

I didn't wear it

The length is ridiculously long. I am 5' 5" and I had about 8" of additional length, which made the dress too challenging to wear, even with heels.

A friend's black tie wedding at a country club.,

The dress looked great on. One flaw was that the snaps that hold the dress popped open when i was moving and squatting dancing. I wore Spanx, so not a big deal at all. Dress fit pretty perfectly, I thought I may be between sizes and decided to go down a size and do not regret it. The armpits were not too tight (a concern of mine) and the dress was not too low or too high cut.

Tuxedo formal gown is rare, made it special and sexy.

Overlapping necking made underwear show at certain angles.
