Beautiful but small

I rented this in a large. In mall brand stuff (banana, j crew, loft) I am a solid medium but designer stuff runs much smaller so usually I size up. But even a large was too small. I could zip it but I was just too tight in my hips. The lace has no give it all. If it would have been a tiny but bigger it would have been great.

Didn't do much for my body, could of work a smaller size

This dress didn't do much for my body so I didn't wear it. I just wasn't a big fan of it. I also could of worn a smaller size. It was lose in the hips

BEAUTIFUL, BUT DOES NOT RUN BIG.

This was my number one choice, but following the "runs Big" advice, I ordered a medium (my usual size). However, since it has no stretch and runs true to size at best.... order up.

Work party and family holiday appropriate!

Loved this dress - sexy enough to feel dressed up, but conservative for a work cocktail party and Thanksgiving dinner with the family. Runs large - I'm typically a 4, but wore an XS. Loved this dress and got tons of compliments!

Pretty dress

Pretty dress detail was great, just didn't like the way it looked on me. My normal size everyday in dresses is 6-8 the large fit comfortably. Returned without wearing.

Love love love this dres!

I wore this to a work party and felt so great in this dress. Im pretty flat chested so I did wear a black strapless bra othereise I wouldnt have filled out the top. The top does have a deep V so the top of the bra peeked out s bit but it was not noticable at all. Im about 5'5 and 110 and it fit perfectly. I wish i coukd keep it!

Perfect winter wedding guest dress!

I wore this for a wedding in late December and it was perfect. I am 5'4" 34DDD 135lbs and the small was a little tight around my chest-back-shoulders but I think a medium would have been too big.

This dress is so pretty. Felt amazing and had a wonderful evening. It is a little tight in the arms. Perfect fit otherwise. Not too short even with being 5'11!

Forgettable

The dress is just ok. Not form flattering, stiff material. Only plus is that a bra is not needed.

Pretty dress with great details

I usually wear a 4/6 and the Medium was slightly big, especially in the arms. It wasn't an issue though and I would wear this size again. I thought it was a pretty and classy dress. Recommend

Didn't end up wearing but very pretty

Beautiful detailed dress and would of worn had I not rented 2 different dresses but this dress wasn't as flattering as the other. I ordered the small but it was a little loose and didn't really do much for my athletic frame. I think it would be verrrry pretty on a curvy frame. Sorry about the mess and child in pic, of course had to send pics to friends before choosing!

I normally wear a size M/10 and ordered the Large however it was too small. The fabric doesn't have any stretch or give. The dress was beautiful however.

Didn't wear the dress after all

I loved the idea of this dress and I'm sure it would have been cute but when I tried it in, it seemed really short in the back. The weather was also changing and I decided it was too cold to wear a shirt dress with cut outs. It was difficult to zip up but seemed well made.

Too big :(

I absolutely love the design of this dress, and it was my first choice, but it was too large. The body I could have lived with, but the sleeves were both very baggy and very long. I wish it had worked!

Great LBD!

I wish the arms were a little more fitted! Not as revealing as it looks on the model in the photo. I like this dress but the price is a little steep for the quality.

Perfect for the event

I wore this for a school fundraiser. I received tons of compliments! It was very comfortable and classy with a bit of an edge. It wasn't a dress I would have normally picked for myself, so I was glad I went out of my comfort zone.

Love this dress!

Love this dress but due to a mix up on my part I was not able to wear it to my event (grabbed the wrong bag when I left town). I did have to plan to wear the size medium vs small. The small was just a tad too snug for comfort. I'd plan to go up a size, otherwise a great dress.

It looks great on the model, but in person it doesn't live up to the picture.

This was a backup dress because of some issue with the dress I actually wanted (no idea what the issue was). It only came in one size, Medium, which was somehow too large and strangely small at the same time. I have a large chest, but the top was way too large for me and made me look almost flat chested. The sleeves were tighter than you would imagine and the lace made them itchy. My biggest issue was the fit. I wish I could have tried a small to see if it may have fit better.

beautifully made dress but runs large

Didn't fit, I rented it for my BFF's birthday party and didn't end up wearing it at all. The lace is beautiful and it's nicely made, but rather boxy on the bottom and poofed out making my hips look huge without being properly tailored, and I have a very curvy bum. Also the arms were wider than expected and I also have muscular arms. The lace snags in the zipper, zip with care!

Charity Event- felt stylish yet conservative-

Slightly short but flattering shape and beautiful detailing. I wore T-strap heels but you could wear short boots as well for a more casual event.

Pretty but tight

The dress is really pretty. But, the midsection is really tight even on the larger size and the sleeves are a bit long for me. It was also difficult to zip up. I wouldn't be able to wear this dress.

Gorgeous dress/got lots of compliments all night.

This is a beautiful dress! I wore the large and am usually a size 8 in dresses. I definitely could not have gone any smaller. The dress has no stretch, so even though I had no trouble zipping it up, the shoulders felt a little snug anytime I moved around. Would definitely recommend considering your bra size when choosing a size in this dress as that seemed to be the most fitted part.

The dress was tight in the bust for me and the fabric was more casual than I preferred for the event. But it's a great LBD and I love the long sleeves, so hard to find long sleeves on a LBD.

Great dress but runs small

This is a beautiful, well made dress but as other reviewers also mentioned, runs very small. I'm a size 8/10 in normal clothes and the L just barely zipped. It was definitely too tight to wear.

More conservative than what is pictured, so unfortunately won't be wearing for the event I planned.

Fabric is really difficult with the zipper!
