I love this dress!
It fits tight at top but is perfect for a summer wedding.

Beautiful dress. Very thin.
This dress was absolutely beautiful. I wish I had gone a size down, as the 40 was a bit large. I was afraid of ending up with a dress that was too small, but this one would have been perfect for me in the 38. The dress is very thin, not much weight too it. I wore spandex shorts underneath. Overall, it was a great dress. I threw on a black blazer over it to wear to work and go out to dinner. Kept me warmer.

flirty and fun without being too sexy
this is a very light weight silk dress i needed to use dryer sheets to get rid if the static cling and wear a half slip with it but it worked out great the top was a bit loose on me and i probably could have gone a size smaller but it worked out great anyway i dressed it down with flats but it could also be worn with heels for a dressier occasion

Not for me, but liked the colors.
I rented this dress as a backup for an event. Ultimately, this dress was not my style. I did like the colors, though. I ordered a 46 (size 8) and it was a little big on me. I could have worn a 44 (size 6), which is my usual size. You definitely need a slip - very thin material.

Beautiful dress!
Like other reviews have said - it is quite sheer, so good to wear a slip underneath. Also true that the waist is very snug, but size up and it is fine.

Loved this dress, wish the empire waist was not so tight!
Very pretty dress. Loved the colors. As others have stated, this dress is very sheer, so you really should make sure you wear a slip. I was very sad to not be able to wear this dress. As others have said, the empire waiste is very tight and the zipper on the side of the dress was quite challenging to zip all the way up. I ordered the dress in a size 4 and 6 and I could barely get the 6 zipper closed. The 4 had a tear along the side close to the top of the zipper, probably from someone who tried to force the zipper. I called to try to size up but it was not available. I definitely recommend this dress.

Big in the chest area, but comfortable
I wore this for a New Year's Eve party and it was little big in the chest, my bra was peeking out a bit. I think for someone with a bigger bust, it would have been fine.

not for me
I'm 5'1 so i felt like this dress didn't fit right. If I were taller it likely would've been great. It's beautiful, and the colors are so pretty together. The fabric is nice and light, so it seems like a great fit for an outdoor wedding. I had a backup dress, which I ended up loving. The top half was baggy and overwhelming on my small frame.

Fun party dress.
It was sheer, so as the reviews said you really do need to wear a slip; I'm so glad my mom packed one. The only other minor issue with the dress is that it is pretty snug around the rib cage. Overall I loved wearing this dress!!!

good modern dress
Overall a very nice dress and true to size. It felt a little tight (but not uncomfortable) around the rib cage but plenty of room in the bust area. The skirt is see-though, so you'll need a slip skirt. My only complaint was the fabric seemed to exaggerate sweating, so I had to change to a different dress halfway through the event.

Beautiful but sheer
I ordered this dress and another one in choosing what to wear to a wedding this past weekend. I loved the colors on this dress and felt it fit true to size. I did not end up wearing this dress and returned it only because it is very sheer and I didn't have a full body slip that I could wear with it. I think it would be flattering on all body types, but if you order this, just remember you will need a full body slip.

Loved this dress! It does run a bit snug under the bust at the green band. I wear a 32C and was able to wear the 38 (size 2), but might have been more comfortable in the 40, if it would have been available. Warning - there is no liner and the dress is sheer, so I had to wear a slip and v-neck slip top. Wore it to a beach-side afternoon wedding and got tons of compliments (including from the bride). Will rent this one again!
