I read countless reviews of this dress before buying to decide what size to get. Here is a guide for any of you in the same situation. I ended up with the medium (in Black) and it fit perfectly. I am 5'7" 140 lbs, about a D-cup, full hips and thighs(I've learned to embrace that fact now). The upper portion of the dress fit like a glove and the bottom portion hid my hips and thighs with it's full skirt. Absolutely beautiful dress and I was comfortable in it all night. The length fell slightly above my toes with 3 inch heels on. I was able to wear a demi-cup bra and none of it showed, not even the back strap. When I ordered it I thought I might want to embellish it a little, but ended up only wearing pearl jewelry. Received many compliments, it was a very classic look. Hope this review helps.
I bought the sleeveless version of this dress (it's still here on O, just search the designer name) in ivory for my wedding dress last year. I took a chance because of the feedback.. I wish I could attach a photo from my wedding here for you. I swear I looked as if I'd dropped at least 15 lbs the moment I slipped it on. In person and in the photos, I will be honest- even though I sound so very Vain! This dress looks and feels, like I'd paid 5 times what it cost! Its simply perfect.. My one yr anniversary is coming up this month. I will be wearing this dress (w/ the 3/4 sleeve this time) in black for our special occasion and intend to wear it to many holiday functions. It is fully lined and very well made. It is as comfortable as PJ's! But simply stunning. The way the straps are, it perfectly allows for your favorite bra. Some friends called it a 'Goddess' style and I must say, I truly did feel like one. Now in the black, I suppose it will be even more slimming! This dress is true to size and though many say they had it hemmed, I allowed the little extra length. When I look at society photos and the red carpet ladies, their dresses flow and even puddle on the ground. it is an elegant look. (I should also mention, this dress travels well. Not a single wrinkle straight from the box. I would feel comfortable packing it for a cruise, etc. As it hangs in my closet now - & I've yet to send it out for laundering - it looks as new as the day wore it a year ago. I had the dress on for well over 10 hours. Its magical)
I wore this gown to my Neices evening wedding and I got alot of comments on how skinny I looked. For a size 14 that is music to our ears!! The Dress was so comfortable, all I had to do was hem about an inch and a half on bottom and I am only 5'3''. I ordered a large and the fit was perfect. The color Navy was very elegant with Silver accessories. I would highly recommend this Gown to all, I had a wonderful time and felt like a million bucks.
I am a big girl, size 16. I bought the XL and am glad I did! This dress is beautiful and holds in all perfections! The other reviews won't tell you what you need to know. chest 38, WAISt 36, hips 40. This dress is awesome and am so glad I bought it for my Mardi Gras ball. I didn't want to buy plus size. I wanted a tight fitting, hold me in, goodlooking dress. If you are curvy...you will LOVE this dress! :D
I ordered this dress for my June 2010 wedding in Las Vegas. It arrived within days of my ordering it, and due to the gorgeous, easy-care fabric, came out of the box ready to wear! I'm a mature bride, and this stunning, contemporary gown hides all the little flaws we older girls want to hide, and shows off everything that's still worth showing off! And the price can't be beat! My bridesmaids ordered the same dress in black with arm bands (mine has 3/4 sleeves) and their verdicts are the same: this dress is a stunner. And did I mention the price is right? I know I will be a beautiful, confident bride in this gorgeous gown; I wear a 38 C bra, and the size Large fits like it was custom-made. Comfort and style go together in ways they usually don't with this dress. Kudos to you, Overstock.com!
The dress is perfect for an evening fall wedding. I'm 54 and have been looking everywhere for a dress that isn't old-lady-frumpy or 20-something strapless/revealing, while still feeling pretty and sexy. This is the dress! The color is rich, (I got it in Wine), the fabric is a good quality and nicely lined and it fits like I had it tailored! The dress is a bit 'heavy' as some others noted here; it would probably be too warm for a summer event, but will be perfect for fall or winter. I am 5'6" and 111#. I usually wear a size 2 - 4 depending upon the item and the designer; occasionally a 6 on top. I bought the size small after reading many reviews and it fits perfectly. The length is also perfect....it ended up being shorter than what some of the reviewers said and I am glad. It hits the floor in my bare feet, so I can wear heels but they don't have to be 4" ones!
The dress was delivered very quickly! It fit me perfectly except for the length. I normally wear a petite. I wear 10/12 and the large was just right. I ordered this in black for a formal night on a cruise. I will be very comfortable wearing this dress because of straps and sleeves. All it needs is a little jewelry.
I ordered two colors of this dress and both were beautiful. I am 59, somewhat busty and usually wear a size 14, 5 feet 7 inches tall. All this info is to help prospective buyers. I loved the dresses, but it was just too bare across the back. I have a zillion freckes, etc. Also, I felt that my bust was a problem (36 DDD). You may have better luck with this lovely gown than I did.
I chose this dress both for the style and the color. I'm have a very light complexion and wanted something that would look nice on me for my son's wedding. This dress was perfect for me. The length was a little long, so I had to hem it up a little to accommodate the heels I was intending to wear. It was so comfortable and fit perfectly. The sizes run a little big, so a medium worked well for me. I received many complements both on the style and the color from so many people. If you want to look gorgeous and be completely comfortable at the same time, this is the type of dress for you.
I took other readers advice that it runs a little large and a medium fits great! The skirt is generous enough for people like me who are pear shaped and need extra room in the hip area. The fabric is good quality, will travel and pack easily without wrinkles. It is very comfortable to wear. Add a little bling and hopefully I will be a well turned out mother of the bride.

I am a size 12 and 5'11" tall. It fit perfectly. I had a friend who was only 5'7" try it on and by adjusting the waist by pulling it up a little it fit her beautifully too.akgal57 on Jan 7, 2014
no - drags on the floor - need REALLY high heels to wear. I returned.skewter4 on Jan 12, 2014
The hem on the bottom when purchases is only over-locked. I think it is intended to be hemmed to the correct length.sstjames on Aug 19, 2014

I'm a size 10 and ordered the medium, it fit fine except for the bust, there was too much squeezed in there and I looked "smished" and overflowing - I'm a 36 D. I;m also "hippy" and the dress still looked slimmingpammiedear on Mar 15, 2013
