Rated 5 out of 5 by mmm22 Gorgeous dress, amazing design
Having never purchased a Byron Lars dress, I was not sure to expect given that it is not made of ideal fabric. It was already sold out in all stores near me, so I took a chance and ordered it in my usual size 6. It fits perfectly, it is not too tight at all, yet simultaneously slinky and feminine. I was a bit worried how it would sit over my hip bones, but it looks perfect, and really has a slimming effect and creates gorgeous lines. I'm guessing that the material it is made of allows for this effect, therefore I"m ok with spending nearly 300$ on it. It feels sexy and vintage, while simultaneously uniquely modern and luxurious! This is an amazing dress: I definitely plan to buy the Carissima sheath asap as well.

This dress is the best! When I opened the package I looked at it and thought it would never fit because I'm slightly broad shouldered. (34-26-36, 125lbs.m 5'4") But when I tried it on it just hugged my body beautifully! This dress is unique and I love how the slip is built in so there's no awkward bunching. I ordered the size 4.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gardenthymegirl A masterpiece!
Why, oh WHY did this have to arrive just in time for Christmas? LOL I saw this astonishing dress just after my Carismma Sheath dress, in black, arrived. At first I thought this version was too close, but irl, it's in a class of it's own. You can barely tell from the photo, but the fabric on the bodice and skirt are different. The top has tiny circles with dots of red. The placket is also a different pattern, but instead of the hot mess I expected, the whole thing works to make you look like the most stunning creature in the room. Very, very flattering on most body types, but I'd dare say especially on the hourglass girl. This is the dress I would wear to dinner, to weddings, to business meetings with a jacket, to tea, to lunch with the girls, where wouldn't I wear this? Fit is tts, much like the Carismma sheath. I pray that it doesn't sell out before I can get my hands on one! Or, maybe, just maybe, it will show up under the tree!
