Required some creative pinning, but gorgeous!

I had to use a couple of strategically placed pins in order to keep the top of this dress from exposing way too much, but with the pins, it was perfection! Wore it for a formal military holiday function. Was comfortable in it all night and got lots of compliments!

Plunging neckline

Way too low of a neckline for me. Did not wear.

You will need a helper!

This dress is flattering and I got many compliments. However, its impossible to get on without someone helping you. There is a slip on the inside so that you can wear no bra. I used the bra cups and they worked very well. You will need fashion tape. The lace at the neckline is very pretty but doesn't lay right without the tape. This photo looks more revealing than it felt like to wear it. I'm usually conservative about cleavage but this felt comfortable. I'm 5'4" and this was just at floor length with heels. I would recommend it with the caveats mentioned.

The dress was comfortable. And was perfect for an event on a cold winter night.

I usually wear an 8 or 10. I wore an XL in this dress.

This was the back up dress to my original order. It was very long on me.

Longer than I would have wanted.

The arms are WAY thin. Beautiful dress though!

I ordered an XL thinking it would fit a size 12-14. It was more like a size 10 and the arms...way, way thin. If you have chubby arms, it won't fit.

I did not wear this dress.

I rented this dress for a preview to see if I would want to wear it as a mother of the bride dress for my daughter's wedding in Dec. I am so glad I checked it out first (although) it was expensive to do so. I will not be wearing this dress for her wedding. I ordered both the medium and large, neither fit and both were much longer than the one pictured. I was disappointed.

Great option for us shorties!!

I wore this to a black tie event. It is described as a "midi" but it nearly hit the top of my shoes (close enough, right?). The arms are a bit snug but overall it was comfortable and flattering. The material is not very stretchy so don't expect a lot of give. I'm 5'0 , 115 lbs, and a 32DD. I'd say it runs a bit small but not by much. I usually have a terrible time finding long dresses that are flattering or that fit so I was happy to come across this one!

The dress came in two sizes and looked flawless day-of.

This dress runs a bit small. I'd recommend sizing up.

Tight

I did not wear this dress. This dress was an awkward length on me since I am shorter. The arms were far too tight as well but the rest fit nicely.

Didn't wear this dress to my event. It didn't fit well.

I was sent this instead of the dress I chose so thia dress is definitely something i would never have chosen for my body type. That being said, I have a size b bust and this was huge on me up top. I'm a size 6/8 jeans post baby and it was tight hard to get on. There are no zippers or buttons to make it easier.

Dress was pretty tight across hips and also bunches up on the left side.

Dress was appropriate for black tie but was pretty snug across hips. It also bunches up at the waist on one side. I am curvy so if you aren’t then it may not 11do this. Runs true to size or slightly small.

STYLIST REVIEW

This dress is beautifully made, however the lace on the arms have no stretch at all. The rest of the bodice fits pretty true to size but I would totally recommend grabbing a pair of spanx that can help smooth things out. If your a little wider in the hips I would recommend sizing up for sure.

This dress was perfect for a wedding!

Runs a little small... the large fit just perfect! The arms are a little snug but better than being loose fitting. Super classy and love the midi length!

Great fitting dress

I rented both size small and size medium, and ended up wearing the size small, although I felt that they would have both worked. The size small fit exactly right, meaning that if I'd had a huge meal or was feeling bloated that day, it might not have worked out as well! The medium fit comfortably and was slightly loose in the waist, which is why I went with the small (because I wanted something more form fitting). Since I am only 5 feet tall, this fit me like a long formal dress and went down all the way to the floor and looked great with 3 in. heels.
