I am a pretty average-sized girl, 5'3" with a pant size of 6 (US) and a cup size of 34B or C, and this dress fit me very well on top but was very loose around the middle, and so the skirt hung a little bit low around my hips. I don't think that matching the dresses in the picture would be very difficult, except for hiking up the skirt's hem lines, which is only impossible because the dress's midriff is so loose. The material that the dress and sash are made of feel deliciously comfortable. In sum: Great up top, sash is a nice perk. Those with narrower waists might want to order on the small side.
It's not quite as glamorous as it looks in the pictures. The material feels flimsy and more suited to a costume you might wear in a stage production or for a themed party. It looks more versatile than it is. Of all the purchases I have made from Overstock, this one was most disappointing.
I bought this dress with the intent on wearing it to the 3 weddings I was invited to over the summer. My initial thought was cute dress, simple idea. Although you can convert it in different ways, I don't know if it was my lack of experience or if it was the dress, but it was not easy to convert to some of the ideas they provided. I guess, I'll keep trying. I've also purchased a convertible dress through *****. This dress was much easier to convert and looked much more elegant once converted.
Very pretty in orange... though it is a truer "carrot" orange than the way my monitor displays the image here. The fabric is a light poly/spandex that clings where it is supposed to cling and flows where it is supposed to flow. The cut and adjustability make this dress extremely versatile and a safe bet for just about any height. My girlfriend is 5'2"; it looks great on her. Undoubtedly her slightly taller daughters will also be clamoring to borrow it.
I bought this dress for my wedding reception, which will be hosted in a small gallery in a cocktail style. I'd searched millions of dresses, formal, informal and causal, online and this is the only one caught my heart. It's simple yet elegant and full of fun. The one I ordered is in red. After I tried it on, it didn't disappoint me. The only downside is the wrinkles of the dress on the belly part do look somewhat loose (or too much) as other reviewers had said. My suggestion is to order the exact size, or even smaller, of your body. I first ordered size small, which is the usual size of me, but felt a bit too tight on the top (breast) part. Then I ordered another one in median, just to compare. I even took shots from different angles to compare. The median one is definitely a NO. It makes you look like a person has a wide and fat belly. (The wrinkles kinda expand your waist horizontally.) The bottom line is if you have a skinny waist then this is a perfect cocktail dress that definitely make you a hit.
This dress was really cute. I was really excited about trying out a dress that could be worn a bunch of ways. And it can be, but the skirt seam is in an awkward place if the hem is to hit above the knee. It kind of makes me look a little pregnant, since it droops. But when worn asymetrically or hitting at or below the knee, the seam looks fine. It fits great and is super comfy! I'm so excited to wear it more!
I've figured out MORE ways to wear this dress!!!...at first I ruched it up...my boyfriend really liked THAT.... But....Pull it down and add a sweater and you can go to church in it!

no no no no no no no no nononononononono. I HATE ordering clothes online and yet i keep making the same mistake by doing it! I want to return it. It fits horribly and of course you can never get it the way it is depicted in the photos. What is up with the 4,000 straps anyway? Eh, well, i am too lazy to even figure out how to return things online (this is where they get you, xxxxxx) so i will just have to find a way to make this dress work even if it means altering it to my taste and making it into one dress all together, which defeats the purpose of why i bought it in the first place!
