Rated 4 out of 5 by WhitsandKnees Wedding Guest perfection!
I'll be wearing this dress to a wedding in the Fall and I can't wait! I agree with much of what the other reviewer said about needing to have the straps shortened a bit. I have a large bust 36D and will need to have the black strap shortened just a touch to make sure the girls stay in place. The length works for me, its the perfect tea length to complete the retro feel. The only weird thing I found was the tulle underneath. I have hips so I don't need as much help to flare the dress out so the tulle isn't entirely necessary. Rather than starting lower, around mid-thigh, the tulle began mid hip only to accentuate an area of my body I don't need help highlighting. Otherwise, another AMAZING anthro dress and I can't wait to wear it over and over again!

Rated 4 out of 5 by jennalauren best holiday dress
I got this dress a while ago through BHLDN. The dress is made really well and absolutely beautiful; love the velvet details! I had previously ordered from BHLDN and took a 10 instead of my usual size 8 in Anthro. I did have the dress shortened and the velvet shoulder tightened as it kept slipping; it fits perfectly now. I wore it to an early spring wedding and have great plans for it this holiday season.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sassysally1215 Beautiful, not for me
This dress is very well constructed and gorgeous. Unfortunately, it did not work for me. I'm very slim with a more boyish figure and it hung like a sack. A size down might have worked, but I think it then would have been tight in odd places. The color is also more taupe than grey, so it washed me out. I'm pale and look better in warmer colors, so if warmer colors suit you more than cool colors, this might not be the dress for you. I could see someone with a bit more of a bust and the complexion for this color totally rocking this dress.
