I absolutely LOVE this dress!!! I purchased the beautiful Red maxi dress to wear at a 50th Sisterhood Anniversary Celebration Banquet and received many compliments. I am a full-figured, plus-sized, pear-shaped curvy woman. I purchased the Red dress in a Size 4X. I normally buy my clothes in sizes 30-32 and some 26-28. I am about 5’6 ft. tall. This dress fit me PERFECTLY! The dress is flowy, long full length to the floor, and made of quality material (95% Polyester, 5% Spandex). I wore some 2-inch platform sandals with this dress. If I could change anything about this dress, it would be the sleeves. They are Cap Sleeves and were a little snug on my upper arms, but it was ok. I also wore a Fringed Chevron Kimono with my dress, which is similar to a see thru shawl or shrug. I highly recommend this dress and want to buy two more!...a beautiful Royal Blue and a Black one too! :-)
Just wasn’t what I was looking for
This is the perfect dress for a nursing mamma. We bought this dress for a formal wedding and it was the perfect fit. It's VERY comfortable and I love the simplicity of it. The bust area folds down perfectly to nurse my 5 month old. It is very long! Im 5'6" and was wearing a mid-heel (3-4 inches) and it was still dusting the ground. I wish I would have worn higher heels or had it shortened. Even though it is not "fitted" it is still smooth against your skin so I choose to wear a strapless bra and seamless underwear. If you need the best strapless bra ever to go with it I used the Wacoal womans redcarpet strapless bra. (link attached at bottom) I was able to dance all night without it falling down which is a huge deal for a 34G.
Wore this as a MOTB (mother of the bride) dress. It was perfect! I had to shorten it but then, I’m 5’2 and I have to shorten almost everything! I’m 140lbs and fall between L/XL or a solid 12 (US) because I’m busty.. This thing fit like it was made for me. Buy your true size. It will fit fine! It’s otherwise plain so you are free to add gems, pins, jewelry at will. Have fun!!
This dress is gorgeous! Sooo comfortable. The cut is very figure flattering. I wore it to a formal event and it was perfect. The only problem was it was too long and I had to hem it. It was 4.5 inches too long. But that is a minor issue and I expected it based on other reviews. I'm 5'4" and almost 200 lbs, average bust size and I usually fit an xl. I followed the sizing chart, got the XL and it was a perfect fit.
love this dress! Because of the two way stretch of this fabric, it is very comfortable to wear and accommodates a variety of body types. I wanted a dress with sleeves and wasn't too snug or too loose--this dress fits the way I wanted.
I ordered an XL, since I'm borderline US size L/XL. I think I could have fit the L, but the sleeves might have been too tight. I'm 5'4" and knee the length would be too long, so I was expecting that and knew I'd need to hem it. I am an experienced seamstress, so I figured I could hem it to my preferred length. When I buy an already made article of clothing, I don't like to have to alter it, but this dress is worth it. I deducted one star because it is not available in a wearable length (unless you are really tall).
After trying it on, I had my daughter pin the back of the dress at the heel where I wanted the finished hem to be. Then I added about an inch for the hem allowance. I cut off about 3 3/8" (about 8.5 cm). I haven't had time to buy the right color thread and sew the hem yet, but I have worn it since I cut it, since the fabric doesn't fray. I am planning to contact the seller to see if I can order future dresses from them with a custom length (I love the dress enough to want it in other colors).
