I absolutely love this dress. I previously ordered a different dress by R&M Richards in size 14, because 16 was not available in the color that I wanted. It was also very beautiful and fit really good, but the bust was a bit snug due to a non stretch cumberband. I was debating if I should keep it when I found this dress on the site. I immediately ordered it and returned the other one. I received it very quickly and was so thrilled when I opened the box and saw it. It is so beautiful !. The lace is of very high quality with matching sequins, the teal color is very rich and it fits perfectly with my curvy figure. It's a little longer on me than on the model, since I am only 5'4', but I it looks great anyway. You also get a stunning jacket , so it's like 2 for the price of one. I love love love this dress !!.

I have been shopping for a dress for my son's wedding and boy are there some expense dresses out there. My son is a doctor and so is his future wife, so I really want to look nice, but not for a lot of money. The wedding is in PA the weekend after Labor Day in an Observatory out doors, so the jacket is a nice touch for fall. I am very full figured 40DDD, tapered waist and bigger legs, so the length is tea length if you are over 5'7" and longer on me, at 5'6", which I don't mind. I ordered the size 16 because dresses in the store that were 14 were a little snug. The 16 is perfect on me with all the curves. The color is beautiful and sparkely enough to be elegant. The overall dress is perfect. I would like to thank all of the previous reviewers for sharing, you all helped me with my decision! Cheers to all of you!!
I bought this dress in teal to wear to my step-daughters wedding on October 12. It's a really pretty color that looks better in person. The shimmer was beautiful in the late afternoon sun. I ordered a size 14 and it fit fairly true to size and I actually could have purchased a size smaller. The cut of the dress is classic and won't go out of style so I'll be wearing this for quite some time. I'm really happy with this dress :)
This dress is absolutely perfect! I looked all over for a MOB dress and could find nothing that suited me. My daughter is getting married in the spring, and I wanted something that was A) tea length; B) "fancy," but not over the top; and C) in a color that would look good on me, but also complement her pink and gray theme. So I ordered this in wine, and it is a gorgeous, rich red- wine. Quality dress that fits well. I'm 5'10' and vary between a 10-12, so I ordered both sizes and will return the 10. Because the dress is a sheath, I think it looks better when not too clingy; the fabric really molds to your figure. It is tea-length on me, but if you are shorter, it might be ankle-length. If you want something classy, but you don't do ruffles and bows, this is the dress for you. Really can't recommend it highly enough!
I took the dress out of the box and was thrilled to see how beautiful it was. It was packed wonderfully and didn't even need to be pressed. It's for my son's wedding and I love it. Showed my husbands and son and they both thinks it beautiful. Can't wait to wear it.

I ordered this dress in silver. Although, once the dress arrived, it's color wasn't as light as the picture depicts, but I wasn't disappointed with the darker shade. The length of the dress was perfect (I am 5'9") and it fell mid-calve level. As for sizing, I believe it was pretty true. I ordered the 16 only because I didn't want my lumpy belly showing, but in all honesty, the jacket camouflaged any imperfections I may have had and my usual 14 would have been fine. However, the 16 wasn't overly baggy. I guess it all depends on how tight you want the dress to fit. Needless to say, it's a very forgiving dress. Also, the jacket is very flattering and completes the dress beautifully...it is lower in the back and compliments that area nicely. I wore this dress as a guest to a very fancy wedding. However, I think it would be perfect for a mother-of-the-bride OR groom, as well. I can't say one negative thing about it. Simply elegant and lovely!
My mother wanted a pretty dress for my daughter's wedding and because she is in her 80's it was hard for her to get out and do any shopping. I hadn't thought about Overstock.com before and we decided to give it a try. Wow, there are so many beautiful choices! The dress meets all of her expectations and makes her look just beautiful! I will be looking here again when we need another special dress. Thanks, Overstock!
Needed for wedding - at age 63 and loving comfort, could not believe I could find a dress that would be so comfortable and yet so pretty. When wearing, I feel ilke an older fairy god mother. Love it, love it, love it !!! So looking forward to the wedding and being in the wedding photos.
I was looking for a dress to wear for a wedding. This dress is perfect for that and SO much more. It's elegant, tailored ~ but not too tailored, feminine and very well made. There are sequins and it's clear they will not fall off. The dress is stunning and not "gawdy" as I thought might be the case. This dress would also be perfect for a mother of the bride or even a bride for a simple second wedding. The fit is true to size and the fabric is forgiving. It shipped without a wrinkle, meaning it packs well and maintains it's shape well. You will not be disappointed, this is a GREAT dress!!!
This goes for a cocktail party, a ceremony or a evening reception. My sister and I have very different body builds (I'm tall and average size, she's shorter and wider) yet, the both of us look fabulous in the same dress, same size. I wowed everyone.
So versatile and elegant, this suit can sneak from casual dress-up to wedding venue. It would be particularly attractive on a less rotund figure than mine, yet it minimizes bumps and lumps as it drapes away from the body. Excellent find for this mother-of-the-bride.
