Rated 5 out of 5Â by sassydoodles This dress is awesome
This dress is gorgeous. I wore it out dancing and received many compliments. It is incredibly flattering -- very form fitting without being too revealing (the ruching looks great). I can see how the "flap" (extra fabric across the front) may not lay correctly for ladies with larger breasts. However, I am a 36-B and it worked great on me, no need for any sewing or alterations. So, maybe this dress is better for women with smaller breasts.
I ordered this dress in Turquoise. The package that arrived said "Jade" but the color is exactly the same as the photo here on the website. So, I don't know what the deal is with the color but I am very pleased. It's beautiful!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Span Gorgeous one-shoulder dress
I absolutely LOVE this dress. I've been searching for a one-shoulder dress for years and ordered this one online hoping it would meet my expectations. The size chart was 100% true to size, so you should feel comfortable ordering based on that. The fabric is soft, but not thin like other jersey knits can be, so I don't see any lumps and bumps under the dress (if you're not perfectly skinny you know what I mean). :) I'm 5'8" tall and this hits right above my knee which is perfectly flattering. AND, the ruching is super flattering too. Plus, the one shoulder side hits at just the right spot under my armpit so there's no underarm fat . It's really classy on. A classic cut and a fabulous addition to any wardrobe.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by RennieJane Very Nice
I got this dress for a rehearsal dinner for a wedding in October. The dress is perfectly nice, but not too dressy, so I won't look like I'm trying too hard. It really doesn't look like anything special when you hold it in your hands, but once you pit it on it is really flattering and classy. I was a little worried that the side ruching might look cheap, but it is totally balanced by the weight of the material and the length of the skirt. Overall I am very pleased. I can see myself getting a lot of wear out of this dress.
I am 5'3 and 140 lbs. I got the Medium and it fits really well. I could probably fit in a small pretty easily, but I didn't want it to be too tight across my butt. I have a round butt and it is easy to look trampy in clothes that are tight across my butt. I am small chested, so I didn't have an issue with the flap across the chest, it looks fine.It comes right to the middle of my knees in length. It is kind of expensive for a jersey dress, but I couldn't find anything else with the look I was going for, so I am glad I bought it.
