┬áby 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 3 out of 5┬áby reneew Unflattering Design
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

Rated 2 out of 5┬áby gogogrl "sheath" is a misnomer
from the picture alone, you can tell that this dress is not a sheath. a sheath would have a far more fitted skirt and either goes straight down without definition at the waist or skims the body all the way down. not only is the skirt not fitted, but it does this awful poofing out at the hips, so your waist looks tiny and then your hips look huge. also, there is way too much lace overlay at the bottom of the skirt; they should have had the lace overlay fall at most an inch or two below the colorful underlayer. i like the concept of black lace over the colorful pattern, but the cut and fit were just all sorts of wrong.
