Very nice dress - perfect for a formal evening - very flattering for many different body types. Very slimming.

This dress was perfect for a formal wedding. It was comfortable and looked good. Combined with a shaw for an evening wedding, it was perfect. (it was a little longer than I would have liked -- but I usually wear petite.)

I love the fit and look of this dress. I rarely wear a formal type dress but I know I will be comfortable in this one.

This dress would be more attractive to someone in their late 20's -30's . It was nice; however, the fabric is just not appropriate for a "Mother-Of -The- Bride" formal occasion. I will need to return it.

I needed a pretty dress quickly for a formal occasion and I liked the color and style on the picture and I placed the order even though the dress was among the most "pricy" ones. Later I noticed that in the description it was called a "modest" gown and was afraid it will be "frumpy" or an "old lady" dress. It is not so! It fits me perfectly, and the style is rather flattering, the skirt is slimming, the color is very fashionable and I felt good wearing it and received many compliments too. What I would change if I could that just have sheer sleeves without any decoration, leave the decoration just only on the bodice - it is maybe a little too much glitter for me. Thank you for the quick delivery, I got it just in time!

This dress is a stunner! I thought it was going to be too long for me ( 5'3") and with my heels it fit like a dream! It's so beautiful and elegant! I purchased this dress for a formal gala....the ruched waistline makes you look so slim. I accessorized with some sparking jewelry for extra dazzle! So happy with this gorgeous gown. Must have!

This dress is great. It has just enough "give" to make it fit like it was custom made for me. I love the movement and also the way it covers all those little areas that need to be covered around the middle. I will wear it with a white long sleeved bolero jacket with silver trim for a wedding and then remove the jacket for the reception. It will travel perfectly in my suitcase on board my flight. I would recommend this dress to anyone needing something that can be dressed up or left along and for those who need it to travel well. I will keep it in the plastic covering and "roll" it for packing into the suitcase to insure smooth unpacking and then hang it in a steamy bathroom the night before the event. A wonderful dress indeed. Would look great at some point shortened to knee length or even tea length

Great color. Great fabric - would be perfect for every formal night on a cruise: it can be a different dress every night with just a change of style and accessories. Problem is I'm 5'4" and even with it pulled over my chest (like the strapless style), I would need 3" heels to avoid tripping. Also, Overstock doesn't sell the coordinated tube top and it's pretty impossible to match reds by buying a non-Von Vonni tube top. I like the dress. I like the style options. I like the goddessy flow of the fabric. It was just too long for me - but I did like it enough to find the short version and order that (unfortunately Overstock doesn't have the short style at this time).

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!

This is the first time I've ever purchased clothing on Overstock, so I was a bit hesitant. I have been searching for a dress to take on a cruise. I was so surprised how beautiful this dress is, and how well it fit... very flattering. I am 5' and wear a 12 and this is just the length I wanted for a formal night on the cruise. Very happy with this purchase !

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

It is a brilliant , pretty evening dress. I love it. It is smaller than the true size.

i am a Eastern Star and the requirements for our Dinner Dances and Balls are Long White Gowns. I choose this dress because it appealed to my taste and for a lot of women who attend our functions, no two women are ever dressed in the same dress. It is amazing what you can find here at Overstocked.Com so you look your best and very different from the rest. I was the Bell of the Ball in this beautiful dress.

The dress was exceptionally comfy for a dressy outfit. It is suitcase & bra friendly. The jacket makes it look more formal. The color is such a dark navy that it looks black. Would be a great mother-of-the-bride dress. Take the jacket off for dancing. But I decided against keeping it because it was a bit too formal for the occasion.

Received compliments all night. Was concerned about the back and undergarment but a strapless bra did the trick. I would highly recommend this dress and for the price -- you can't go wrong! Keep in mind it's pretty long and I am 5'6 and wore 5 inch pumps with it and it skimmed the ground...

This was my first time ordering online and I was extremely pleased with my purchase. I purchased the dress for my son's wedding and was somewhat worried about ordering online. However the dress came when expected and fit perfect and I received many compliments on the dress. Thank you!

This dress is absolutely stunning. This is a dress that is timeless. It says nude but as the picture shows it has gold sequins on it! Very good price for y The quality and beauty.

LOVE this dress. Everything I wanted and more. Fits just as expected, and was perfectly long. I'm 5'9, and there is room for me to wear 2-3 inch heels. The sides of the dress look so luxe, a very expensive-looking dress!

The photo does not clearly show the ruffles down the front , sides and back of the jacket. I was wiling to accept the ruffles at the bottom of the back of the jacket, which are clearly shown in the photo. I did NOT want ruffles everywhere so I returned it. However, it is really pretty and very appropriate for the formal occasion I was going to attend. But those ruffles looked juvenile and detracted from the elegance of the dress. Frankly, I don't know why the designer added ruffles to this dress, since they made it too busy. If you like ruffles, you will LOVE this dress. I checked that I would recommend the purchase because the dress (without the ruffles) is pretty.

The dress was a good price, comes in a lot of colors, and of good quality. The problem is, as another reviewer noted, the size. I thought it was a plus size or womens size dress. It is misses. There is a difference and I could not even get the dress over my hips. Back it goes. My rating is based more on the product description. If you fit in misses sizes than it should be fine.
