This dress is comfortable, flattering, and looks classy as well as subtly sexy. I have already worn it twice, once to a Mother's Day brunch and once to a formal wedding, and received numerous compliments. I think it would flatter nearly any plus-size figure, but FYI - I'm a 4X, curvy and somewhat bottom-heavy, with a large tummy. I did wear a "shapewear" firming slip underneath (which is much more comfy than an actual girdle), so that helped minimize my stomach, but even without the slip, it is fairly flattering. The cut of the dress calls attention to the bust and decolletage area, without being too revealing, and does not cling, but rather falls gently, skimming the curves, so it is really just one of the most comfortable and gorgeous dresses I have worn in a long time. I am thinking about getting one in another color as well!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? More of a true royal purple than it appeared on my computer, but every computer screen is a bit difference when it comes to color.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent!
When I tried the dress on for the first time, my husband was speechless. It's THAT good. The fabric drapes beautifully, and it's not clingy in a way that shows every lump. I had a perfect hourglass without any shape wear underneath.
I found it to be true to size.
Can't wait to wear this dress again!
I got this dress in the blue and it's a really nice blueberry color. The neckline isn't so low that you have to pin it or wear a cami, but for work I did decide to pin it. The best part of the ruffle is that it makes pinning a lot easier than with a normal surplice neckline. I think it runs pretty true to size. Though on my 5'5" self, it's about 1 - 1 1/2" too long. Nothing a little hemming can't fix, though. The cut is flattering to a curvy figure, but one still should plan on wearing some sort of foundation garment underneath, same as with any matte jersey garment.
I've had this outfit for about a year and a half now. I've worn it maybe twice. It has a very pretty color. It's just a little too clingy to the curves. I find that I am constantly pulling the front closed so I'm not miles of cleavage. I had bought this for work, but it's just a little to sexy for the office. Plus, it clings a little too much to the other curves as well. It's not that it isn't pretty, because it really is, but it does make me a bit uncomfortable in how much it wants to show off everything. Might do really well for someone with a smaller bust.
This is a great dress, instead of a LBD, you can have one in a deep purple. At first I wasn't sure about the ruffle down the side, but it is soft, and there is slight ruching as you wear it, so it works. I love that this will travel well, and can be dressed up with blingy jewelry or can be worn with tights and boots for a more casual look. I have lots of summer dresses, but not too many that work in winter. This fits the bill. Even though it is a jersey fabric it has a nice weight to it, not too thin.

This is a nice, drapey jersey dress. I wish I had a little more "up top" to maximize the cleavage area, but what can you do? I did find it a little long for my taste (I'm about 5' 4" and the hem hits at mid- shin). I may get the hem taken up about 3" -- haven't decided. But overall I'm happy with the purchase &looking forward to wearing it to my company Xmas party!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The colour was more of a wine than I expected, but still nice & rich.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. seems like a good quality garment
Purchased this dress for some of the holiday gatherings coming up this season, and am very satisfied with it so far. It hangs well on me, and the girly ruffle down the side gives it just enough feminine detail. The elbow-length sleeves and knee-length skirt make it modest but definitely not matronly.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Very close match
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Fabric feels lovely and wears well--not terribly hot but not too light either
I'm thrilled I purchased this dress. True-to-size (based on the sizing chart), this dress gives me such a flattering figure. I'm going dancing in a week and this is going to be my go-to dress. Sexy without giving it all away, flattering in all the right spots, hugs my curves without making me look like a stuffed sausage, oh yes, this is as great dress!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The red is a little brighter, but still really lovely
