Why did you choose this product?
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 liked this dress, but decided it was too low cut for me, so sent it back.Read More
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.Read More
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!!!!Read More
This product is soo comfortable. Got lots of compliments on it. Seemed like the straps weren't exactly fitting, but a little fabric tape and I was good to go!Read 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.Read More
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.Read More
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.Read More
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.Read More
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.Read More

How to Determine Your Dress Shirt Size

Generally, dress shirts will be sized by the neck and sleeve measurements, and some companies also include measurements for the waist or list the shirt's body-cut type.

Here's how to determine your dress shirt size and find the perfect fit.
Best Dresses for Petite Women
If you are petite, finding clothing that fits correctly is essential. Petite apparel prevents you from looking boxy or drowning in too much fabric and ensures a fit that flatters your body. Shopping for petite clothing will help you find the right sizes with all the fashionable options as other departments. The best dresses for petites are easy to find with a few simple guidelines. V-necks draw the eye up toward the face. V-necks are flattering for all types of women, since they show off the neck and encourage the appearance of a long, lean body. Petite dresses that have a V-neck also create a vertical line and give the impression that you are taller. Look for petite clothing that allows you to play with accessories and show them off. For an evening look, pair the V-neck with layers of necklaces to look glamorous. Find knee-length dresses to flatter your legs. As a petite woman, flowing long dresses may cause you to look smaller. When more leg is showing, you will appear taller. A flattering petite dress is hemmed at the knee or just above the knee. Pair a petite dress with heels and your legs will appear long and lean. Don't go much shorter than slightly above the knee, since it may be inappropriate for work or more elegant parties. Select petite apparel that hits at the right length and is flattering to your curves. Vertical designs will elongate your body. Look taller by finding dresses that have a vertical design. Dresses that have vertical stripes create the illusion that there is more length. On the other hand, dresses that have too many patterns or colors may cause petite women to appear smaller. A simple dress is flattering, whether it's one solid color or contains a subtle pattern. Petite women can use a wide belt at the waist in the same color as the dress. Using a belt in a different color may cause you to look shorter, in addition to cutting your appearance in half at the waist.
