Shipped very quickly, great material, lined, heavy weight. The dress would definately stand up to packing, etc.... My husband and kids said "Wow". Only downsize, is size. I am actually sending it back and ordering the regular sizing XL. I am 5'3 & 195. I thought it might be tight so went with the 1X but the material is stretchy and I'll be more comfortable in the XL. Great for us bustier girls and the roughing will look great on the tummy. I'm giving it a 4 rather than a 5 due to length. For my height, it was about 5" too long. Would be great if it was offered in petite. For the price though, I'll take it in and get hemmed. I got the blue which is a beautiful deep color, so I would say that the colors shown are a good representation of actual dress.

Dress arrived with two hangers and a plastic bag. The box was huge, the dress could have been shipped in a box 1/3 the size. I ordered a 1 and 2x. So far only the 1x has arrived and the fit is pretty good. I'd say it runs big except for the bust & arm area. I'm a 44D and it's perfect on me. The straps are odd. The are not designed to go straight up and over your shoulder. They are cut to go at a very awkward angle--outward to the edge of your shoulder maybe even an inch or two down the arm. It's....weird. The actual sleeve part is very very thin and a little tight on my very fat arm. The ivory dress material is see thru. It does not hide the problem areas of my stomach or hips. Definitely will need Spanx and possibly a slip. I'm 5'1" and I will have it shortened by about 3", if I keep it. This is for my casual beach wedding this fall. I think the other colors would work much better at hiding body flaws, wish I needed a different color!

I needed a formal dress and chose this in black. I am 5-3 and usually wear a 1x or 16-18. I also wanted a sleeveless dress because I get extremely hot, even in the winter, but this dress also added the drop straps that help cover your upper arms if you don't like the look of totally sleeveless. This dress was a junior size, so I figured I would need a larger size than normal judging by the dimensions on the size chart. I did need a 2x. The material has stretch in it, so it fit nicely in the waste and bosom, especially if you have a larger bosom. I do recommend a strapless (maybe push up) bra. The skirt had a flair starting from the waist, and I really needed this to help hide my belly. Flat sheath dresses make me look like I'm a few months pregnant (hee,hee). For my height I had to get it shortened by around 4-6 inches. This material does not wrinkle, so I could wrap it into a ball and it unfolds like new. It is dry clean. I felt comfortable and beautiful in this dress, especially for a larger sized woman who has trouble finding clothes.

I normally wear 1X or 2X. I ordered this dress in 2X and it was too tight around the bodice and waist, otherwise loved it. Had to return it though.

I ordered the "wine" in a 1X. I am 5'7", 200 lbs. and normally wear a size 16, and I'm a 40C bra size. The dress fit perfectly to include the chest area and was a good length with heals. ( now see, wasn't that helpful? ;) Some reviewers had posted there isn't enough coverage in the chest but I didn't have that problem as a size C, you just need a demi bra. The material is actually pretty nice in that it's heavy enough for covering up undesirable buldges fairly well but yet it still flows nicely. I would still recommend a body shaper to smooth out any lumps and bumps. So what's wrong with it? I will say that the straps are the strangest thing about this dress. So much so, that they look awkward and out of place. If they had been stitched on from the inside vs the outside, that may have helped. But I had three dresses to choose from and my two boys and fiance did NOT pic this dress because of the weird straps. I ended up returning it.

This was a lovely dress but way overpriced for a polyester dress, in my opinion. I wear a 1X petite and was thrilled that this came in petites, but the 1x was too small. Sorry to say this had to go back.

The dress was a hit but I should have gotten a 1x the 2x was just a little to big.

Fits like a glove. As a DD, ordered a 3x instead of my usual 1x-2x, and it fit very nicely. It is long, but if you are over 5'5" it will work nicely. Great color and washable. Finally, it's warm while still looking cool.

This dress is beautiful. It was a last minute purchase for me and I'm glad I bought it. All of the other reviews are right. I am 54 yrs old, 5' 10" and a size 16/18. I bought the 1X (because at the time they only had 1X and 3X available). It fits perfect. I am tall and it is long (my heels are 3"). I am not very large busted and the fit is perfect for me. The dress arrived wrapped in plastic AND on 2 hangers! LOVE LOVE LOVE this dress.
