This dress is true to size, and is cut very low in the back, as well as, not much coverage in the bustline, but the jacket helps. I ordered this gown for a banquet and yes I did read that it had a glitter jacket and top, however I was not prepared for the shower of glitter even as I unwrapped it. It comes on a hanger and is covered with plastic and is an overall nice product, but whenever you move glitter falls on you and every person, place and thing you touch. Hopefully I can find a way to stabilize the fallout, as I like the cut, fit and color.
The picture online does not do this dress justice. The fabric is good quality with the bodice and jacket having some give - perfect for a fall formal wedding that I am attending. It is a dark dark green - and the "stitching" on the jacket and bodice are in "bright" gold thread - the picture does not show that at all. It does seem to run small - I ordered a size larger than I normally wear, thinking it is easier to take in than let out, and it fits very well.
I ordered this dress becasue I attend formal events for work and hate to pay too much money for several dresses. This dress was pretty but bunched up around the zipper. i thought it might be too tight, so I returned it and ordered a larger size. that dress was loose on me, but still bunched around the zipper. I have to assume it was poorly sewn
This is a very nice dress for the price. It is a little darker than I envisioned, since fern green is not such a dark color to me, but it is a nice color. I noticed that someone else mentioned the glitter shed, but all you have to do is shake it well before wearing. I bought some little gold slippers to wear with it to my daughter's wedding, and got lots of compliments. I am rather broad-shouldered, so it was a tiny bit tight across the bust, but I have that problem with almost anything I buy. This was nice enough for an outdoor wedding, but very nice for church, too, so it worked out well.
I bought this dress for a formal dinner and was not sure what the weather would be so the jacket was perfect for the occasion. I was a little hesitant of what size to order so I just ordered my normal size and it fit perfect. I would recommend this to any one.
