Rated 5 out of 5 by stunning dress, fits like a glove! I had my eyes on this dress ever since it appeared on the website but without a real need for such a rather special occasion dress I waited for sale, and as soon as it got markdown I rushed to the local store to get it. I was glad it was in stock there, and not on-line exclusive as it states on the website, because i read varied reviews on several blogs as far as sizing goes... I'm between size 2 and 4 in dresses, 34B, bigger on bottom, 27" waist and size 2 fit me like a glove. I mean I was in LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT after i zipped up the dress, it was that stunning! i should have also tried a size 4 just to compare but I simply was having a dressgasm LOL i'm 5;9" and the waist hits a little above my natural waist but not too high to look off. the skirt isn't too tight, the bodice is tighter for sure, i don't have loose fabric there like the model, mine is fitted and i prefer that way, the back looks amazing as well. What I especially love is that there is no excess loose fabric above my bum, that i often have in dresses (i have a butt on me), it is such a tailored fit. the lace is great quality. the fabric feels great and is substantial and delicate at the same time. what a very special dress when i was paying for the dress, another woman was paying for hers and we were both in awe of the dress btw, i think this model is rather petite because i'm 5'9" and the dress is shorter on me (attaching a picture) May 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very creative elements The designer of this dress has done a nice job putting favorite textures & colors together into one winning combination. I'm always a fan of the dress that looks like a skirt/blouse, but so much neater and put together. Fiber content is 77% cotton and 23% silk-- very good quality, and it's lined as well. The only two things that kept me from springing for this lovely dress were (a# the cost, and #b# the fit. I am pear-shaped, and this skirt is pencil, so I would need to take it a tailor to bring in the waist if the skirt fit #which would have to be a size 8-- for reference, I am 5'8", 135 lbs, 34-B). Also, the dress that I tried on seemed to have a shorter hem-line than the one above (I am assuming that the model is taller than I am)-- the hem was 3-4 inches above my knee. But it's lovely for sure, and I certainly recommend the quality. April 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Dress for my bridal shower I bought this dress for my bridal shower and it was perfect. I tried on (and bought and returned) many dresses for the occasion, but stopped after finding this one. Couldn't have been more perfect for a spring shower. I made it into a mini dress by having the tailor take about 6 inches off the bottom. That made it extra cute and chic. The dress fit like a glove and I felt special all day. I got a million compliments on how gorgeous the dress was. Definitely a winner! I am usually a size 2 or 4 in dresses. I bought this in a 2 and it was perfect. April 11, 2013
