Rated 5 out of 5 by the perfect holiday dress This dress is a show stopper! I recently wore it to a party and was bombarded with compliments all night long. I found the sizing to be bang on, I am a size 8 and that fit perfectly. I do agree that the zipper is tough and that the lace upper irritates your neck a bit, but I had some ribbon sewn in along the edges and the problem is sloved. December 14, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Didn't hit the mark For a dress I paid over $300 for I was expecting this dress to be a show stopper. My expectations, however, were not met when I received the dress in the mail. First, the dress does run small. My measurements are 5'7", 125 lb, 34B. I usually go for a size 2 in anthro dresses but ended up liking the fit of the size 4 much better. It wasn't as tight across the chest and my shoulders didn't look like they were massively big (I have fairly broad shoulders). Second, the zipper was a pain on both dresses to zip and unzip. I thought I was going to break it with the force I needed to use to get it to budge. For that price one would expect the zipper to go up and down like butter. Third, the neckline is awful. It hits you in such a way that you feel like you're being slightly choked and it was super irritating against my skin -- rubbing against my collar bone. I wish the designer had made the neckline just slightly lower. Fourth, the top while interesting just made me look big. The V in the back wasn't nearly as low as I thought. The combination of the super high neck and V in the back just gave me a chunky look up top. The only redeeming part of the dress was the skirt. The colors are beautiful and with some ironing the skirt would flow very nicely. I had really wanted to love the dress but sadly it wasn't meant to be. Back it went. November 29, 2012
