I Love the dress! It is a really nice dress to own. Very well made plus light and airy. I think it was a great buy! On the down side...The sequins get every where! I would suggest doing something to get rid of the loose sequins before wearing it. I did not have time before a party to take care of that. By the time I got home I had sequins EVERYWHERE! My underarms were black sequins! Very funny to see but not fun to try to get off .Even with that being said I would buy the dress all over again. It is well worth it!Read More
I am really happy with this dress. It fits perfectly. I am 5'7" and 185lbs and the 14 is just right. Also, it covers up the bulging belly pretty good.Read More
I orders this dress for a special event. When it arrived and I tried it on the side seams of the top layer of chiffon did not lay flat and bunched up on the sides. I have sent it back for a refund.Read More
This was a very nice dress .Especially the price. Perfect for a dress-up occasion nice fit & length. The fabric was also soft. The pin was a little showy - but it cut be removed if not your style. Problem was the V-neck was too plunging for me. Maybe fo ra younger person. Sorry but I had to return. The service from Overstock was great-fast delivery and in return process. Thanks Overstock-good serviceRead More
the dress is very pretty for the price. Size is perfect.Read More
I was worried the silver piece in the middle would look cheap and the dress might be a poly/knit. But neither was true, more of a chiffon type flowing bottom half and very flattering for all figure types. Very happy w/dress.Read More
This dress was everything the other reviews stated. I am so pleased with the fabric, fit, length, etc. I am going to wear this to a wedding in mid September, and I think it could be a 3 or 4 season dress (on the east coast). I'm 49 years old, 5'3" and 135 lbs. I didn't want a matronly dress or a 20-something dress, and this works perfectly. You absolutely cannot beat the price either - better than dresses I've seen for more than double this price. THANK YOU OVERSTOCK!Read More
This dress is so flattering !! I'm a bit overweight, and this dress was very flattering. It flows nicely and doesn't stick to the hips. Loved that dress, and had many compliments. Jazz it up with some nice heels, and it is a very comfortable and flatterin dress.Read More
I loved this dress! It was a little low cut for me, but was very easily adjusted so that I was comfortable. I was surprised that the bodice was sparkly (that doesn't show in the picture) but I was wearing it to an evening wedding so it didn't matter a bit.Read More

Best Dresses for Petite Women
If you are petite, finding clothing that fits correctly is essential. Petite apparel prevents you from looking boxy or drowning in too much fabric and ensures a fit that flatters your body. Shopping for petite clothing will help you find the right sizes with all the fashionable options as other departments. The best dresses for petites are easy to find with a few simple guidelines. V-necks draw the eye up toward the face. V-necks are flattering for all types of women, since they show off the neck and encourage the appearance of a long, lean body. Petite dresses that have a V-neck also create a vertical line and give the impression that you are taller. Look for petite clothing that allows you to play with accessories and show them off. For an evening look, pair the V-neck with layers of necklaces to look glamorous. Find knee-length dresses to flatter your legs. As a petite woman, flowing long dresses may cause you to look smaller. When more leg is showing, you will appear taller. A flattering petite dress is hemmed at the knee or just above the knee. Pair a petite dress with heels and your legs will appear long and lean. Don't go much shorter than slightly above the knee, since it may be inappropriate for work or more elegant parties. Select petite apparel that hits at the right length and is flattering to your curves. Vertical designs will elongate your body. Look taller by finding dresses that have a vertical design. Dresses that have vertical stripes create the illusion that there is more length. On the other hand, dresses that have too many patterns or colors may cause petite women to appear smaller. A simple dress is flattering, whether it's one solid color or contains a subtle pattern. Petite women can use a wide belt at the waist in the same color as the dress. Using a belt in a different color may cause you to look shorter, in addition to cutting your appearance in half at the waist.
