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 ordered this dress in black for a formal wedding next month and I love it except for the straps. They are set so wide they won't stay on my shoulders. I'm debating if I am going to keep the dress and have it altered or return it. Depends on the alteration estimate I get. The neckline also plunges a bit too low for me, but that problem might also be solved by moving the straps so they remain on my shoulders. The fabric is stretchy and comfortable and the dress is surprisingly heavy and feels well made since it is lined.
I am not a dressy dress person, or even a dress person. In fact I pretty much hate all dresses. But I need a formal dress for a cruise ship and this had great reviews. I put it on with my good bra, and whoa, it actually looks pretty good, even without a spanx on. I'm 5'5, and this is a good length too, it reaches the floor, but doesn't drag like I expected. I'll wear low heels and I think that will work fine..a dress like this is supposed to be long right? Also, as some reviewers suggested, if you are large in the bust, prepare to have a LOT of clevege, or maybe not even fit. For a plus size woman, I am not that big in the bust, about 42 C, and it fit just right up there for once. This is nothing short of a miracle for me, as usually if it fits other places, it's too big in the bust. Also this dress is kind of thick and lined, so shows the lumps much less than one might expect. I usually wear about a 22 unless it's got non stretching sleeves, and in this I got a 3x and it's just about right. The one thing that isn't quite right (I debated knocking off a star for) is that the little straps for the shoulders are placed a bit weird. They are loose on my shoulders and don't seem to do much, and don't cover my straps, though I might be able to pin them to make it work.
I loved this dress, and it fit beautifully. I wear 26/28 and the 4x fit absolutely perfect!!! The length was just right, and the fit really concealed "problem area's"!!! Unfortunately I had to return because I had ordered for a wedding, however the bride wanted a lighter pink instead of the magenta....I would definitely recommend this dress!!!!
Beautiful Dress, very Odd straps. I ordered this dress for a more formal wedding this fall and it was very fitting for the occasion however the straps were weird. The length was perfect, I am 6'0 tall and the color and material was beautiful! With a little alterations the dress is doable but straps don't not cover your bra straps and are oddly proportioned as well. If i wasn't in a time crunch, I would have kept the dress and had it adjusted but I didn't have the time to invest in doing so. Overall, I very flattering and formal plus size dress.
I bought this dress for a New Years Eve party at work, and as I work as the casino manager on a gambling ship, it held up well for the entire evening, with as busy and my night was and as much running around that I did. It was very comfortable and moved beautifully. I usually wear suits to work and my staff and the guests were amazed and throwing compliments at me all night long!
Perfect for our Grandsons wedding. I love the color, quality, and design. Thank you to all other reviewers that said it was a smaller fit and not for large busted women. I wear an 18w but ordered a 2x. The shoulder design is very flattering while covering the upper arms. I wear flat shoes even for evenings so will have it hemmed. Dressmaker only charged $**** because if the ease of hemming. I will need to have my bra straps secured to the dress straps so they do not show. But, if that is all I need to do ...it's perfect.
I used this dress as my wedding dress. I am so glad I purchased it! It fit like a dream and looked so good on me. It was a little long, but that is because I am really short, but it still was perfect!! BUY THIS DRESS, YOU WON'T REGRET IT!
I was looking for a gown for a cruise and special upcoming events and found it. The gown is elegant, a perfect fit but best of all it feels wonderful and very comfortable. The fabric weight is not too heavy and flows With one exception it is a little too long for me but an easy fix. I just love it! Thank you Overstock.
Very forgiving material with lots of stretch. Fit as expected. The red is a beautiful color. The dress has some substance to it, but isn't overwhelmingly heavy. I bought it for a fundraiser concert and have worn it over and over again.
I wasn't sure about the fit around the armhole, but it was perfect. There was no hard tugged and tearing. I'm also 5'8", the dress is still long enough to easily permit me to wear 2-3 inch heels without tripping over the hem. Can't wait to place my next order.
I loved the way the dress felt ( soft and most important comfortable)and I must say I looked great in it. Lol. It was long for me being 5'5" but I rocked it with some high heels. The dress put everything in the right place and showed off the most beautiful features of a females body. I can't wait to order my next dress for my next to event.
