OMG, this dress is amazing. I've worn it twice now (two different dates, yeah me!!).. I do not use the belt (string really) provided, I removed the belt loops and use my own stretchy belt.. The dress is amazing. its all you need for the casual but nice events. Wear with jean jacket and woven belt for a more casual look, wear it with a nice cashmere sweater/sheath and a studded black belt for a night out on the town! Love love love this dress.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes.
- How is the quality of the product? Good.
- Did the product fit true to size? It runs big - I ordered the extra small .. and it could be a bit smaller
After reading all the reviews I bought a small size instead of medium and it was still extremly loose. I am size 8 and I shud have bought an Extra Small for this particular dress. The dress is definately sexy but runs very very big. I love it but I am thinking of returning it only because of the size :(This dress was my first dissapointment at overstock :(
Although I love how sexy this dress looks, for an occasion that I was attending, it seemed it had a little deep neck, so I turned it around and wore back as front and it was very BEAUTIFUL & SEXY in a classy way! My boyfriend loved how it showed my back in a very classy way and front wasn't as revealing!
This dress does run big. I'm a size 12 and the medium was the correct size for me. The large was way to baggy at the top. But I didn't really like the way this dress fits. The bottom is a nice straight, fitted skirt, but the top was baggy, loose and didn't really define my figure because it "bloused" and hung over the belt. I felt like I looked thick and heavy on the top -- not flattering. It was a bit like wearing a belted garbage bag with holes for my head and arms. Maybe this dress is best for the taller, slender figures.
Having paid attention to other reviewers, I ordered a size down, and I'm glad I did. Still the sizing seems bizarre. It is far too large on top, so if you are large-busted it could be perfect. The armholes are cut deeply, though. I like the unusual shape and find it mostly flattering on. I don't think the fabric looks particularly cheap, at least I've seen much worse. However it's definitely not worth the price listed. Very good idea to wear it backwards. I think it's actually better that way!
I simply LOVE this dress. After reading other reviews, I purchased a size smaller than what I'd usually wear and it was just perfect, so I guess it runs large. However, other than that it was just amazing. It's so sexy and so versatile. Plus, that advice from another reviewer: wearing the back as the front was a great advice! I love how it covers my stomach, too. Try it and you'll love it =)
I bought this dress for a trip to Vegas with my husband. It was just perfect! It fit well and looked super on. I have a little stomach bulge so I wore a tummy slimmer underneath, but even without it - it hid all my imperfections quite well. Plus, it was very comfortable to wear. My husband really liked the way I looked in the dress as well.
I was glad that I read the reviews and ordered a smaller size...it is very generous...very simple, little black dress...I also wore it backwards, so that the drapey part was in the back... I thought it was sexier that way. This will be a go-to dress when I need something a little dressier or dress it down with a jean jacket and tall boots and tights, and a statement necklace... Lots of fun...so glad I got it. Thanks!
The dress was nice... I ordered the XS, I am small, but not extra small (size 4) but I could not keep this dress on my shoulders. If I gained some weight this would be perfect or had a bigger bust. Wish it fit.... really did like the dress.
Very nice dress for the money. It is comfortable, and can be dressed up or down.

This is probably THE most flattering dress I have ever put on! There's something about the draping that camouflages problem areas. The length is a bit long but with a different belt it can be adjusted. I love how it can be worn backwards as well for a different look.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Perfectly
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. As noted in other reviews, the fabric is thin for the price tag. I had a credit so I got it for $20 less, and for the price I paid it was a fair deal.
- How accurate was the sizing? Runs big as others have noted. I am in between sizes and ordered down. Good call.
Like others have said this runs very large. I am a size 8/10. I usually get medium or large and I ordered a small and it isn't tight at all! It is a little longer than I had hoped for but I can hem it, not a problem. I also turned it around and wore it backwards and it looks so much better. It is a very thin, basic, simple dress but will be really easy to dress up and look really pulled together. The "belt" that comes with it is just a string. It can be used, but adding your own belt would look better. Overall this is a nice dress.
