Sweet and pretty

Lots of compliments. Fits like a dream. But tiny buttons have a tendency to come undone. I had to pin in several places to avoid an incident.

Unique, summery look

I got lots of compliments on this - wore it first to an outdoor press conference then on an out of town trip. The plunging neckline works for someone like me who's not very busty. There is a hint of shimmer that I don't think is reflected in the photos, but I don't think this makes it feel too dressy.

Received many compliments!

Dress is beautiful but the third button was opening constantly. Fixed with a safety pin! Otherwise, it fit nicely, I was able to wear a strapless bra, and length was flattering.

Just Ok, A little dowdy.

The fabric is light and flowy, perfect for a hot day, and I liked the little button down detail. Hit under my knee in length which was nice as I am tall. Wasn't super flattering on my hourglass body shape, as it hung heavy at the waist, but it may have been better if the smaller size was available.

Cute dress, annoying buttons

What everyone says about the buttons are true, they come undone anywhere that's not perfectly lie-flat (for me under the boobs). It was long but not too long on my petite self. Super cute and light for summer tho!

Pretty with a little expose

Buttons in the center kept coming undone. The silver stitching was pretty but itchy

Feminine and slimming

Slimming design. Gorgeous fabric. Metallic thread is a bit itchy at first but then it was fine. I had same issue as some others with middle buttons opening but fixable and worth it. Loved the longer length. Bust not too revealing.

Love the print!!

This was a gorgeous dress. I wore it to work. I did feel slightly self conscious about the bust area because it's quite low cut. The only thing that was a true issue was the button underneath the bust kept popping open but it wasn't too tight.

Pretty but fussy

Definitely base the size off your chest. I got the size 2 and have B cups and it was tight throughout the chest and one of the buttons kept popping undone. Only wore it a couple hours so the itchy material wasn't too bad with a tank top underneath. The material is light and flowy and the color/design is beautiful. It would be nice for a day event or shower but wouldn't recommend wearing it all day since I had to keep adjusting the top buttons.

Button feedback is spot on!

Everyone was correct about the buttons, and it was a little to low cut. Buttons will not stay closed, and worried about the whole thing pooping open! Didn't wear.

Cute dress but buttons kept popping open.

Loved this dress and really wanted to wear it. It fit perfectly but unfortunately the buttons are not sturdy. Every time I moved the buttons came undone on the top. I'd try it in a bigger size but It will definitely be too big.

Spring birthday dinner dress

Super flattering. Size 0 still had looseness to it but as other said buttons popped opened regularly (otherwise it would be 5 stars). Wore regular bra. Several people asked where to buy it they liked it so much. Material is quite thin- not see-through but doesn't provide much warmth.

Cute! But very annoying!

This dress has a low cut but is very conservative! I always feel very uncomfortable with very low cuts because I am busty but this dress hit in the right places and show the right amount of cleavage. The only issue is the little buttons do come undo ALOT!!! I would recommend if you are willing to put up with the buttons all day long

Was not able to wear dress to my birthday dinner

Dress was way too large, usually I'm a medium but this fit like a large. The material was very itchy on the inside of the dress making it impossible to wear.

Day time dress

This has shimmery threads I wasn't expecting. It was super cute but ran small, I am a consistent S/6 and I took the 2 in this. It didn't feel too small but one button at the waist kept on popping open literally all day any time I moved. I had to go home to change before going out because it was so annoying.

Did not wear this as the top was so small it would not even button over my 32" rib cage.

If you have a small bust, I bet this would be beautiful. But if you're a C+, you won't even get it close to buttoned even if you have a small ribcage.

I love this dress. It's not nearly as low cut as it looks in the photos. Very romantic and pretty!

The fit is great but be warned BA&SH runs very small. The 3 is their largest size and I'm a size 8 and it fits me. Also, for some reason, as another reviewer noted, the buttons pop open. The dress isn't tight so there's no reason for them to pop open, they just do. Was a little annoying when I discovered it in the middle of dinner, but I used a safety pin the second time I wore it.

Sexy and Sensual

Love this dress! Paired with a pair of black Victorian lace-up boots, this dress turned heads. I felt elegant and confident out on the dance floor. Dress has metallic threads running through the fabric, adding a touch of sparkle. The only snafu was a button on the waistline, it kept popping open. Easily remedied with some fashion tape.

Vintage! The fabric is very light, perfect for summer.

Great fit. Was worried about the plunging neckline but not a big deal on a medium to small bust.

didn't wear

This dress was really beautiful, but the fabric was SO itchy that I ended up not wearing it. It also has a little tiny bit of shimmer thread woven throughout, which is really pretty (you just can't see it in the photo.)

Fits true to size. Only issue is the buttons kept popping just below the breast.

Amazing dress

This dress is gorgeous. In person the fabric is super detailed, which you can't tell from the pictures. The fit is incredibly flattering and emphasized my waist while hiding problem stomach areas. I was afraid the cut in the front would be too low, but it was perfect. The only reason why I deducted a star is because the buttons come undone constantly. This dress fit perfectly, and yet, with almost every movement and breath buttons at the top and in the stomach area would pop open. I fixed it with a few strategically placed safety pins and that solved the problem, and was well worth it because the rest of the dress was so great!

The silver thread running through the fabric adds a level of unexpected sophistication!

I got tons of compliments on this dress! You will likely need to safety pin the buttons in the waist and bust to ensure they don't come open, but otherwise very comfy and easy to wear.

Love the vintage-y feel of the dress.

Fit is true to size, however a couple of buttons kept popping open. Most likely due to # of times it's been rented/dry-cleaned.

Comfortable. Too low cut for works, but still looks cute with a lacy bralette or tank under to make it more modest.

Pretty & delicate

The fabric is very much like sheer stationery, although it isn't quite that sheer. Very delicate and pretty, very understated although it has a shiny thread that runs through it. Nice enough.
