Rated 5 out of 5Â by reneew Beautiful Dress
This dress is spot on! The colors are better in person (more saturated), and the ground color of the dress is an oatmeal/beige-like color. Perfect sheath dress with a back zipper, I am going to wear this dress everywhere.
I have to say, though, that when I pulled it out of the bag I was afraid that the material is too thin. It isn't lined, but the 100% silk is of a good quality, so it isn't sheer at all.
FYI: I am 5'3", 36C, short waited, and I have a broad back/shoulders. I am larger on top than the bottom, and in a dress like this I would normally take a 8/10. I chose the 8, and it fits beautifully. I am a 4/6 on the bottom, and I worried that the dress would be too big in that area. Even though there is a bit of room there, somthing about the cut of the fabric makes it move without standing straight out and emphasizing my otherwise non-existent hips. In other words, with or without hips, you will be okay.
Though there is no stretch to the fabric (100% silk), it almost feels like there is some in the way that the silk doesn't pull. There is some flexibility, so I can only guess that the fabric is the reason. Anyway, I am short, and so the dress falls about an inch above my knee.
This is a perfect dress! I cannot recommend it enough, and I think that it will work for many types of bodies. Take a chance!

Rated 3 out of 5Â by cboyle36 Not worth the price
I saw this dress online and had to have it. Unfortunately it is not as wonderful on....The dress is a basic shift shape with long-ish short sleeves, which was not a very flattering silhouette on me. The fit was fine but the overall look was very square (for reference, I am 5'3, 120 lbs and I ordered a size 2). The silk fabric was pretty but the background would have been prettier in an ivory rather than a nude, which looked slightly odd. Also, for this price, the dress should have been lined.
