Rated 4 out of 5Â by TLDR Pretty but not for me
This dress is beautiful and the colors are not greyed out the way they appear on the front of the dress on the model. There are actually beads and sequins interwoven in the dress, it's very delicate. I'm 4'10" and I found the petite to be super short on me. It didn't quite flair for me so the top fit perfectly but the bottom was too tight, maybe not suited for an hourglass figure. For someone less curvy it's a lovely special occasion dress.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by teachsum1 Beautiful dress
I went into the Pasadena store looking for a dress for my cousin's wedding in July and I'm glad I did. I found this dress in a 0P on the rack in the fitting room and tried it on. For reference, I'm 5'1, 115 pounds, 32C bust. Initially, I felt that it was a bit short because I tend to wear knee-length dresses but it reaches past the tips of my fingers. I really loved all of the intricate beadwork which you can't see online. Also, the colors look really good together. This dress fit perfectly on me, not too tight, but very flattering on my curves. Though this is pretty pricy, I know it's a dress that I can wear many times in the future.

Â by Arlette Mini shift with darts to flatter
There was a size 0 petite in my store so I gave it a try for fit. I'm 5'2", 32.5 - 24 - 34.5, bra 32B or C/ 30C, with narrow shoulders, slightly long torso, and a fuller bottom. As the 0P was a bit loose on top, I think the dress may run a little large.
The 0P fit well overall with the ease of a classic shift dress. It was a bit large on top with larger armholes that just covered my bra, but it balanced out the bottom and wasn't noticeably oversized. Very comfortable on.
The front and back darts were perfectly placed for petites giving it subtle shape while keeping the overall shift silhouette. Oddly, the back darts aren't visible on the online photos.
The length in petite wasn't as short as on the model.
I don't like wearing polyester in the summer, but it certainly makes it less prone to wrinkling than silk would. The wrinkle in the photo must still be from when it was shipped. It is a high quality polyester, very soft on the skin, which is a big plus for comfort.
