After looking for an appropriate dress to wear to an early June wedding, and having poor results, I was pleasantly surprised to find this dress on Overstock. I was hesitant to purchase without first trying it on, but the fit is perfect! So many dresses out there are too short for this 50 y.o. but the length on this dress was just right. It is comfortable, and flattering, and I can't wait to wear it.
This dress is prettier and more flattering than it appears in the pictures. I ordered the navy blue, and it is so dark that it appears almost black (The tag actually said black, but I held it up next to a black jacket and saw that it is navy blue, but just barely). The fabric is a poly/spandex blend that drapes nicely. The sizing runs a little small... I normally wear a size 14 but it felt a bit too tight, so I traded it for a size 16 which fit me okay.
I saw this dress in other places, but not in the color I wanted, purple, so was happy to find it here. The dress is attractive and comfortable. I wore it to a wedding and received many compliments. Because the brooch at the waist is fairly large, it requires a substantial necklace to balance it.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Purple color matched well.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Overall good quality, but there were a lot of loose threads, especially around the sleeves and shoulders. I just cut them off.
- How accurate was the sizing? Accurate
Ordered one size up from what I already had because the shoulders were snug. This dress is 1.5 inches longer than the petite size I have and doesn't look as nice. Since the other dress still fits and it costs too much to have the dress shortened I will be returning it. This company needs to bring back their petite sizing again. Even though the description on the dress implies that it is a shorter length it is too long for someone who is 5'1". A less glam adornment on the front would be appreciated.
