Rated 5 out of 5Â by ShanC beautiful but would not wear it in the summer
I am usually in between size 6/8 and took a size 8 with this one. for reference, i'm 36"-29"-37" and the size 8 fits perfectly in this. i'm 5'6 and the skirt hits me a couple inches above my knee. If you are in between sizes, I suggest go with the larger size for more comfort. I find this dress to be very flattering and the fabric is very comfortable to wear and has some stretch to it. as you can see in the picture, it did an excellent job highlighting the little curves that I possess. Like other reviewers have mentioned, it does have some weight to it so I wouldn't wear it in the hot summer weather. the lace is tan colored and they are not flimsy either. The only thing I don't like about this dress is that it flares out too much at the bottom for me but that depends on your personal preference. if you like it that way then go for it!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by KB1120 Perfect, elegant, sexy take on the LBD
Came across this beauty at my local anthro. Brought it with me into the dressing room just to try on with no big expectations. When I put it on I fell in love. Its so flattering and truly beautiful! Such a great mix between classy, feminine with a sexiness to it. The material has the perfect amount of stretch and somehow magically hides any imperfections.
Length is perfect and the rouching on the waistline makes the design more interesting and aids in making your bod look great!
For reference I usually take an XS, some occasions XXS, or a 2 and I tried on the 2. Fit is TTS.
The dress is not light or flimsy, definitely has some weight to it. Stitching, hem line everything is well done. In case you cannot tell by the online photos the floral design is not a print but a pretty lace overlay with a tan lining underneath. While I did not get the dress that day, as it was a little out of my price range for a spur of the moment stop to my fav store, I am def getting this one sooner than later! Don't let it pass you by;)

Rated 5 out of 5Â by AlexaJ great dress!
I found this dress in the sale section and decided to try it on. This is not a style I usually pick for my body type but when I tried it on, it gave my normally straight figure the illusion of hips! I am usually between a size 2 and 4 and took the size 4 in this. As others noted before, this is a heavy fabric but will transition nicely from winter to spring. With the additional 20% off sale, the price cannot be beat!

Style #:30475156You might recognize this oh-so-flattering ponte fit-and-flare: It's the laced-up version of Eva Franco's beloved Strata Dress. Like its predecessor, this ladylike charmer creates a teeny-tiny waist and doesn't skimp on the flounce.
