Rated 5 out of 5
by Lindinha A Picture of Spring!
The dress actually didn't appeal to me online but in-person, POW! I couldn't take my eyes off it.
Model photo doesn't quite capture the beautiful spring colors radiating from underneath the netting. It leads you to think either (1) the black netting is dominant or (2) the floral colors are muted. Not the case.
I'm 5'7 and chose a Size 2
-Not too heavy but there is some weight to it, which I attribute to the netting.
-Length is exactly as pictured. Wished netting was shorter or removable.
Overall - definitely worth adding to the wardrobe!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Blyss For Skinny Minnies Only!
I love this dress, ABSOLUTELY love it. It is so unique, interesting and it covers everything from top to bottom!
Unfortunately, it also runs small. I'm 5'3, and as of late I've been wearing a size Small at Anthro. I am, however, very top heavy.
The top of the dress is too tight. I tried it on in a size 12 and Regis and Kathy Lee were still squished. Where it comes in on the waist was again, too tight and uncomfortable.
The dress is heavy, but that's not a drawback. Just thought I'd mention it.
If you are petite and thin, this dress will fit you like an absolute dream! Curvy Girls, we'll have to sit this one out.

The concept is nice. The lace overlay is interesting on the colorful lining. However, the fabric of the lace is bulky (polyester) and, so, it is heavy and doesn't lay flat against the body. Thus, the fabric creates a bulky, unflattering line especially around the waist.
FYI: I would normally wear a 10 in a dress that is fitted through the waist. I have a boyish waist (straight up and down), and I am short-waisted, too. Having said this, the waist is my problem area. Thus, any bulk doesn't typically work for me. The 10 was way too small, but it wasn't only that the fabric was bulky through the waist. The chest of the dress is also a bit tight. I am a 36C (34D), and I have broad shoulders.
The length is also odd. I am 5'3", and the lace portion of the dress fell a couple of inches below my knees. The lining, though, fell just to the knee. Both were too long, and so it made me look dowdy.
The take away: you need to be very tall and thin to wear this dress. You shouldn't have a waist or chest, either. Straignt and Slender
