What a beautiful dress! Everyone thought it was very pretty and the beadwork was really well done! I am wearing this dress when I get married in August of this year. Absolutely gorgeous! What a find!

Dress COLOR was not a true ivory but WHITE and LENGTH was extremely LONG. Dress was beautiful but DID NOT work for the occasion I needed it for.

When I received the color was perfect. When i put on the material was o.k. ( I guess the price you pay for it the quality you get). Love the color. the length and the pleated tiered hem slight little different from the picture. Its shorter tiered hem on the dress. other than its good want go to the events. it will do.

Beadwork was really nice and overall dress was good, but it was way too big. I kept it thinking I could have it altered, but bead work makes it very spendy and difficult. So sad.

Very happy with purchase overall. The underskirt of the dress is shorter than the chiffon overlay which was a negative for me but will deal with it. Otherwise a beautiful dress, ordered a size smaller because it ran large.

I orders this dress for a special event. When it arrived and I tried it on the side seams of the top layer of chiffon did not lay flat and bunched up on the sides. I have sent it back for a refund.

Flattering, stretch fabric bodice, and forgiving chiffon fabric below the bodice. Skims over waistline and hip curves in a flattering manner. Crystal applique draws the eye up and is a nice addition to the dress. There is a floaty chiffon scarf piece attached under the crystal that I thought I would remove, but everyone tells me it looks great on me as is, and I should leave it alone, so I will. If your abdomen is not hard as a rock, the scarf sort of floats in front of that area and detracts. Sheer chiffon beginning just above knee allows a sexy but elegant show of leg. I love this dress.

I was worried the silver piece in the middle would look cheap and the dress might be a poly/knit. But neither was true, more of a chiffon type flowing bottom half and very flattering for all figure types. Very happy w/dress.

I bought this dress to wear to my sons wedding this summer. It is very well made and flattering. I am 5'4" and it hits me in the mid knee. Looks very regal. Love the sheer chiffon sleeves, empire bodice and diagonal tiers! Great value!

Would have loved to have this dress...however I'm still to busty for an XL. Needing 2XL but not available in the red. So I ordered the back up choice today. I love the chiffon layer over the top of the skirt that extends as a faux tie over one shoulder.

I ordered this dress as a Mother of The Bride dress. When it arrived, I was so excited to try it on. I was just heartsick to see it was incredibly too long. My daughter's wedding will be an outdoor event and so I planned on wearing flat sandals rather than heels. I even tried the dress with a 2 inch heel and the hem STILL brushed the ground. I'm 5'8" and usually have the opposite problem--finding that dresses and pants are too short. In fact, many "long" dresses are sometimes tea length on me. I don't think I've ever had any clothing altered to make it shorter in my life. I did check on this and the seamstress said the dress, being a chiffon type material, would be costly to alter. It would have cost about half the price of the dress. Unfortunately, I'll be returning it. So sad!! If you are a very tall lady (over 5'11") I would say BUY THIS DRESS!

Perfect fit...although I did add some see through chiffon/silk to the top because I am a DDD cup and it showed too much cleavage for me, But most people are not size DDD cups. I got the large and it flows perfect. Slimming as well. I especially love how this dress does not wrinkle because I am taking it on a cruise. Perfect purchase for me. I love this dress!

I couldn't believe how flattering this gown was when I put it on. It is very floaty when you walk, and the material is heavier than chiffon, but flows beautifully over my hips and really minimizes them due to how it's draped. It feels marvelous while it's on. The bodice is snug but not tight; it's very comfortable. I swear it takes 10 lbs. at least off my body; always a plus!

I was disappointed in that the dress in the photo looks like the panels are definitely separate and free-flowing...they are not! The dress clung unattractively. After ordering a 2nd dress in the larger size, I added a chiffon bias cut semi-circle over the skirt so that it wouldn't cling and would flow nicely. That is really my only complaint. The dress was comfortable to wear and the fabric was of good weight and quality. The end result was stunning. I have photos if you would like.

Having been married before, I didn't want a dress that screamed WEDDING DRESS. As we are planning a casual beach wedding, I wanted something understated but still elegant. This dress is unbelievably perfect. I normally wear a 4 in a dress, and after reading the sizing info for the size 6, I was afraid it may be too small due to the measurements listed. It fits almost perfectly, just needs some taking in at the darts in the torso and a bit in the bust. It looks AMAZING on, and is absolutely PERFECT for my situation. The sequin and beading is just enough to not be too dressy, yet the flow of the chiffon and the added GORGEOUS shawl make this the EXACT dress I was looking for.

I was initially disappointed when I pulled the dress out of the box... The written description of the fabric is accurate, but from the picture I expected it to be a bit silkier or chiffon-ier. It's basically just a stretchy fabric. But then I put it on, and it fit well and was very comfortable, if not as elegant as I was looking for. The straps worked well though and looked nice in the back, but the way the bust fit me made it look more like a casual beach cover-up than an elegant dress. Perhaps a strapless bra would have shaped it better on top. Ultimately, I ended up liking some things about the dress, but at 5'10", it was a few inches too short for me and I'll have to send it back.

This dress is very dramatic and elegant and is a good weight for a summer formal event. The beadwork is very nice and the shape and styling is very flattering and I think would work well on most figure types. I am very curvy and was concerned if I went down a size whether the dress would fit properly, since it doesn't have a zipper and slips down over your head. It fits very well and I didn't have any problems pulling it on or with it being baggy anywhere. The waist is higher than normal, but is still flattering. The lining is shorter than the outer layer, which is shear, but it still looks good, (this didn't bother me that much). The dress hits at the knee and is somewhat ruffly, so it feels very feminine. I do agree that the beadwork is very scratchy under the arms, so I wouldn't wear it to an event where you are moving your arms a lot, such as dancing at a wedding. However, I am wearing it to dinner and the theater, where I will be seated most of the evening, (and will try to keep my arms still). I guess this will be the price I am willing to pay to have a beautiful dress.

I really liked this dress. It was cut nicely and had a wonderful flow when moving in it. I purchased it for a formal, Black and White event, which you could only wear black and white. This dress has silver beads. I did not notice them when I ordered it. I also, did not read the sizing information, so it was to big. Had I been able to use it for another occassion I would have exchanged it for the correct size.

When I spotted this dress I thought that it would be the perfect dress to wear as the Mother-of-the-groom. And, I was right! The reviews were extremely helpful. The dress is well made and the beading is extraordinary. I did not experience the uncomfortable feeling of the beads on my arms as some of the reviews suggested - I guess that I will weigh in on this after spending an entire evening in the dress. Otherwise, the dress is comfortable and I can envision spending the evening in the dress with no worries. The dress would be flattering on any shape. I couldn't be happier with my purchase.

I was looking for a dress to dance Latin in a local competition. This dress fits the bill. It is gorgeous, sparkly and very flattering as I am a fuller figure. The comments saying the dress runs a size large are true. I did order a size smaller and it is still a little big on top, but is very beautiful and great quality. I would highly recommend even though it was more money than I usually spend on a dress. I will definitely have several uses for it this holiday and dance season.
Bridesmaids' dresses are often the most notorious part of a wedding.

An ugly bridesmaid's dress can even upstage a wedding dress. There is some hope, however, that you can choose the right dresses for each bridesmaid that won't distract from your special day.
