The quality of this dress was good but the size was misleading.
I order clothing on-line all the time and am familiar with sizes. I know that XL works well with my figure. I'm tall but not into Womens Sizes.
However, "XL" at Overstock.com appears to mean "Size 14" (or smaller), at least for this dress. Perhaps I can find one my slimmer friends to give this dress to; I certainly cannot wear it. It's not a matter of losing fat; my ribcage just won't fit in the dress and yet it fits other manufacturers' definition of "XL".
I've ordered many dresses on line from many different stores, looking for my mother of the groom dress and this is the one I finally narrowed down and decided on! Had originally purchased it from a dept. store and paid $$$ more than Overstock, and I don't need it until September, so I reordered it off Overstock and returned the dept store dress! $$$ savings on a dress I will only wear one time is a deal I wasn't about to pass up! It's a beautiful dress... my husband loves it and it's the one I am wearing in September to my sons wedding! Pairing it with silver strappy heels and a silver diamond bracelet and earrings... and bam...done!
I bought and wore this dress for my daughter's wedding. It was PERFECT! I was looking for a particular color of blue to go with the dark grey suits worn by the men in the wedding party, and pale yellow dresses worn by the bridesmaids. The color in the photo is a little brighter than the true color; slate blue is a perfect description; it is a medium blue/gray mix; the beading on the front is beautiful as well. I was worried the beading would be too flashy for the wedding, but was not at all. I received MANY compliments. I couldn't have been more happy. I did have to have it altered in length as I am only 5ft tall, and the straps were altered to be a little shorter, I have a very short waist/torso. I ordered a size 6 and 8, ended up staying with the 6 (returning the 8), it is true to size (which was a BIG PLUS compared to shopping at a bridal store where you have to buy 3 sizes larger than normal to get the right fit and 5 times the cost!). The value of this dress is exceptio...
The color is so pretty. Quite happy with that. I have a little bit of a tummy and the dress helps hide that because of the cut and the beading. On the model the dress looks short and since I'm tall (5' 9") I was concerned. I'm wearing low heals and I think the length is perfect. I'm also very happy with the way it fits. My only concern is the beading (which is gorgeous) under the armpits. I hope it doesn't irritate me by the end of the evening. It is a beautiful dress for the price.
