I was looking for the perfect dress for my high school reunion and this one fits the bill (and me!). It's classically elegant and I'll find lots of use for it not only at my reunion, but for semi-formal events I have through the year. As a bonus, I found the dress originally at a major department store site, but it was $XX cheaper on Overstock.com!

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 pretty dress, and great quality for the price (silk). I purchased this to donate to a prom dress non-profit, and it was very pretty. The back is as pretty as the front.

This is such a beautiful dress. Just too small, and bigger size was sold out. Everyone loved the dress. Great shopping experience for me also. 1st time shopping on line for formal dresses. My size was only reason for return.

I ordered this dress in navy blue for an Army dining out (a formal dinner/dance). I am 5'4" and usually a size 12 and bought the XL according to the measurement guide - but it was way too big. I wasn't sure if I was going to wear it and even went shopping to see if I could find anything else, but then I decided rather than spend money on another dress I would see about getting this dress altered. I took it into an alteration shop and did not want them to take off any length (it was a little too long) but instead asked them to gather up the left side so that it draped like the body part of the dress, kind of like a slit without having to cut into the dress (it looked a little plain the way it just hung there). I also had them take in about two inches on the sides and pull down the arm "drapes" about an inch and sew to the sides so that the bra fat wasn't so wasn't so visible (you know what I mean - where the bra ends above and to the side of your breast). After a few days I went back to pick it up and tried it on and it was PERFECT! I wish I could post a picture of it on here. I bought some beautiful navy blue suede heels with a strap and wore my mom's pearl necklace, pearl earrings, and her pearl bracelet. I swear when I put everything on for the dining out I felt like Princess Diana and I got so many compliments on the style, color, and how it fit me. I didn't even have to wear a "scuba suit" to hold everything in because this dress hides it all! I did have to get a push up strapless bra but that was bound to happen anyway given my small breast size (I was so excited to have cleavage)! So, if you are looking for something simple and classy this is the perfect dress - just make sure you order it with enough time to have some minor adjustments made, if needed.

I like the dress, but was very disappointed that so many beads and sequins fell off. Right out of the bag, stuck to my arms when wearing etc. I know there are Spare beads/sequins, but . 1. I understand some will fall off, but for the Money, wasn't expecting to have to sew before wearing. 2.didn't have time etc. to sew as was wearing to a Wedding and did not have time. Other than missing beads/sequins I like the dress

The dress is beautiful just as shown. True to the size, be aware there is no room for "streching". I am petite size 4-6, 34B and went for a six. Fits great, women with bigger breast size could fit it better since it is roomy on top. It is very long, must hem it. Neckline and back are beautiful with a clip on top and zipper on the side. The "tail" creates a very nice bottom. I am using it for a summer evening wedding and wanted a dress I could use for something else. Perfect for a formal dinner at a cruise for example. I love the chic design without looking to missy.

I bought the dres sto wear to a formal dinner dance. I ended up wearing something different, but will definitely hang onto to this for a future event. I really like the length of the dress, it's not too short like many of the dresses today.

I love this dress. It's formal enough to wear to a wedding but can also be worn to church. I love the color. I am definitely happy with my purchase. Thank you.

This the prettiest dress I have. Fancy for special evenings out, that formal night on a cruise, or as mother of the bride or groom for an evening wedding. The beading is fantastic. It dry cleans well. The color is such a pretty shade of blue. Comfortable and giving fabric. I have a thick waist line and it makes me look great.

I bought this dress for my wife's birthday .She is just crazy about it. She has already worn it to two times and got rave reviews about it. She's pressuring me to but her another dress the same style just a different color.

I ordered the white/off white for my upcoming beach wedding vow renewals. I liked the way the dress was light weight and lined; however, with it being white the lining is sewn inside out. I am not sure if this is a design flaw or not but with the lining seam inside out it is VERY noticeable through the outer layer of the dress. The two linings do not line up with the seam of the dream. I could just imagine all day long taking pictures needing to realign the stupid sides of my dress so the double lining seams wouldn’t show. I am sure that in any other color but white this would not be a problem. I just needed a white dress. I had to return it.

This is a very nice dress (sort of medium dressy) - plan on wearing for an evening out or holiday party. The Tahari ASL dresses fit me well and I love the simple classic style. They are comfortable to wear and I can relax and enjoy myself.

A lot prettier once you put it on and picture does not do this one justice.

This is a beautiful gown which flows when you walk or dance. The material is comfortable and soft to the touch. Great for a cruise gown or other formal occasion. The long sleves make this a little demure, if this is your taste. I also bought 2 other dresses from this manufacturer last year and they are the same quality I have come to expect from Overstock.

I bought this to wear to a wedding in August. I wanted something that was comfortable to wear, had a modest neckline, covered my upper arms and that I did not need to wear pantyhose with. I also did not want to spend a lot of money on a dress that I may wear only once. This is a quality dress with timeless styling. As with most formal wear, I bought a size larger than I would normally wear and it fit me perfectly.

Love the dress!!! Especially for the price. Will wear this many times over the years. Very comfortable fabric and fit as well. Only problem was length - I am 5'4" and wear a size 6 which fit great, except it's very long on me even with heels. Of course, for the price of the dress, even paying for alterations is still a great deal!

I just received this dress and it is so stunning. It fits true to size and has a floor length slip with give under the dress. I bought the Navy Blue color and it is just perfect for formal nights on a cruise or a formal wedding. I would even recommend this dress as bridesmaid dresses or the white for a evening wedding for the second time around. This dress looks far from cheap it is classy and well made. You would not find this at a local dress shop or department store. My teenager wants to wear it and she would not be caught dead in my clothes!

The dress was delivered very quickly! It fit me perfectly except for the length. I normally wear a petite. I wear 10/12 and the large was just right. I ordered this in black for a formal night on a cruise. I will be very comfortable wearing this dress because of straps and sleeves. All it needs is a little jewelry.
