Rated 3 out of 5 by Nice, conservative, has flaws I really wanted to love this dress. I was so excited to have it delivered. Unfortunately I don't love it, but I will keep it for a very low-key, conservative wedding in a hot climate. Firstly, the colours definitely have more navy than aqua. The aqua is not aqua as per the website image, it is more teal. The pattern is bold. Generally the dress is conservative. I am 5'2, 120 lbs and I purchased the 2P. It fit well and length was about 1 inch above the top of my knee. I would have preferred the fabric to be more clingy/sheath style in the pencil skirt, which also has two rather old-fashioned darts at the front. It's a little boxy and unflattering on me. Lastly the fabric is like a silky cotton feel which is nice but fairly 'casual'. The biggest flaw is the design of the back. The 3rd image on the website shows one gold hook button. However it actually fastens in another 2 spots with stud buttons. One over the bra strap. Every time I move my arms forward to even type this review, or to pick up my baby the stud button over the bra-strap pops open. Very annoying! November 27, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Looks like a different dress! I was really excited to order this dress because of the gorgeous color blues in it! When it arrived i was extremely sad to have received a mainly navy dress! Not the pretty light aqua color :(. I hope if I exchange it I can get a different cut of the fabric?? Also it's not a satin material at all i think more cotton. Nicely made though. November 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Party Dress! I loved this dress from the moment i saw it instore. The print caught my eye first, because the colors are a lovely blue and aqua which i adored. The dress fits really well and is comfortable, i love a great sheath dress and this one is awesome because it displays classic elegance from the front, and when you turn around the crossover back detail wows! I havent had any trouble with the buttons or the snaps staying closed, and i really love how the snaps are placed perfectly to cover up my bra. All in all, I cant wait to show this dress off this holiday season! December 6, 2013
