Stylist Notes

The leather trim on this Philosophy Di Alberta Ferretti dress lends a tough edge to a feminine style. This LBD is begging to go to a party.

Size & Fit

This dress runs slightly small. We recommend going one size up for back-up size (see following fit notes for exceptions). Italian sizing.

BUST: Works best for A to C cup sizes - built-in corset and bustier runs small
WAIST: Not fitted
HIPS: Very fitted - dress runs very narrow throughout the hips so curvier women should size up
LENGTH: Mid-thigh - (on a 5'5" model)

UNDERGARMENTS: Should be worn with a strapless bra or no bra because of the fitted bustier; seamless underwear recommended
FABRIC: Fabric has no stretch
GREAT FOR: Apple, Full Bust, Hourglass, Petite, Tall, Straight & Narrow body types
(Model's height is 5'10".)

Product Details

Black silk chiffon with satin back. Built in bustier for support. Leather trim with embossed detail. Rossette at chest with draped body. Hidden side zip. 30" from bodice to hem.

I ordered this dress in a size 8 and 10 both did not fit, way too small. It also looks much better in the pictures.

Great dress; runs small

Rented this dress for a NYE party. Received a lot of compliments especially on the leather band at the top of the dress. Size definitely runs small. Was not able to get larger size as it wasn't available. Style is definitely unique which is what I was going for.

I loved this dress but the smaller size was missing the "eye" of the clasp at the top of the zipper which made it impossible to wear unless I went out, bought the missing part and sewed it. Fortunately, the larger size fit better anyway but I think someone should have caught that before it was shipped to me.
