Nice dress for formal event. I would recommend it if you have the right body type.Read More
I'm 5'6", full busted and usually wear a size 6. I ordered one size up, because reviews of other dresses by this company seemed to indicate they run small. This was in fact the case. The 8 fit me well. I ordered the ruby, and it's a pretty cranberry red, just as pictured. The dress came in a very small box, yet the dress came out unwrinkled, indicating a nice quality, drapey silk. The bodice has nice, tasteful beading and for me there is just enough cleavage -- not too much and not too little. I wanted a silk long dress for cruises, because the silk is so much lighter to pack than polyester. This dress will be perfect . I like moderate heels, and the length for 5'6" me is just right for a moderate heel. Shorter ladies will need higher heels. This is a pretty dress (and I'm a picky shopper.) It's a lot like one I bought some years ago from a high-end retail shop. Don't be afraid to order this dress. It's flattering and the quallity is good.Read More
