I purchased this dress in black for my daughter's wedding. I love that it does hide a "multitude of sins", especially in the mid-section, and also love the longer "sleeves" which I might add did not make the dress too hot. Throughout the day/night I received many, many compliments and truly felt stunning. While some beaded dressed can be quite heavy, I did not find that to be the case with this dress. in fact, I would say it was very comfortable! My only complaint is that there is no zipper and I had to have hair and makeup done while I was already dressed. I'd shopped for dresses that were much more expensive than this, but in the end, this absolutely stunning dress was the perfect choice!!!
This dress is absolutely STUNNING! True to size!! It is so classy and elegant. Tons of beading and bling. It's a little heavy - because of all the beading but not back breaking!!! Hits you at the knee exactly where the flattering part of your legs begin. An all year/season dress. Great for a cocktail night, wedding, formal, New Year's - it's truly a stunning dress.
