Heads will turn when you arrive in this glamorous off-the-shoulder, long, plus-size gown. Made of a polyester/spandex blend, this dress is cleverly designed for optimum flattery with waist ruching, bra-friendly straps and a luxuriant full skirt....more
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.
I BOUGHT THIS DRESS FOR MY DAUGHTERS WEDDING. MY DAUGHTER AND I HAD BEEN ALL OVER TOWN TO MANY AREA DEPARTMENT STORES INCLUDING BRIDAL STORES AND WAS GETTING VERY FRUSTRATED BECAUSE I WAS NOT ABLE TO FIND ANYTHING THAT I WAS HAPPY WITH. I DECIDED TO GO TO OVERSTOCK AND LOOK UP PLUS SIZE FORMAL DRESSES. READING THE REVIEWS WAS VERY HELPFUL. WHEN I RECEIVED THE DRESS I TRIED IT ON AND IT FELT WONDERFUL. IT MADE ME FEEL INCREDIBLE. WHEN I SHOWED IT TO MY DAUGHTER SHE GOT VERY EMOTIONAL AND SAID " MOM YOU LOOK BEAUTIFUL". YOU CAN NOT ASK FOR ANY MORE THAN THAT FROM A DRESS. VERY VERY HAPPY.
I wish I had read all of the other reveiws before I bought it. The woman who says it isn't for large breasted women was right. The empire waist ends up being unflattering when it cuts off halfway down your chest. That is my only big complaint -but if I am ordering a 2X, I probably have big boobs. The straps don't really hide a plus size bra either. I like the fabric and the style and loved the wine color. The shipping was incredibly fast.
If you have breasts that are D+ there is a chance this won't work for you. There is a seem under the bust that will only go partially over your breasts if you have large ones. This dress is beautiful and mostly flattering and made out of a silky heavy material, but can make hour glass shaped women look larger than they are due to flaring out at the waist. If you have Ds or DDs cup sizes, you can try it, but anything over that probably won't be able to fit within the breast seam. I loved it but have to return it because of this.
I overall liked the dress, but was very disappointed when the bust size was too small for me. I'm a DD, so I really not sure what size the bust needs to be, but being a Plus Size Girl, I would of thought that area would of been better then what it was. I have to wear this for a a wedding & I'm not trying to show a bunch of clevlage. So, in the end I returned the dress & found something I now love even more.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The color was great.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. I liked the fabric, it was very static like though.
How accurate was the sizing? The size fit, but the Bust Area is for someone who is small. & Being a Plus Size Girl, I'm also bigger chested as well.
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.
