LOVE this dress! I was worried because I had read mixed reviews online about it - some love it, and some say it's shapeless or looks like a maternity dress on. I'm a curvy lady, so I don't need anything that amplifies that, but I love the way this dress fits and looks! The most snug fit is under the bust, so the skirt does fall more free-form, but I don't feel that it makes me look heavy (and neither does my boyfriend). The fit was perfect - I'm normally a size 16, and that's exactly what size I ordered. The seersucker material is also very good quality. What I didn't see online is the back, which is a shame because it's very cute. The front straps wrap around the neck and button together with little buttons that match the piping; there is then a "backless" type effect across the shoulder blades (and slightly lower). The back of the dress zips up to roughly the waistline. If I were to complain about anything, I'd say the dress plunges a little further in the bust than in the picture - I can't wear a strapless with it because of this. Luckily, the dress is snug enough that I can go strapless, which I can't normally do as a 38C. I do find myself nervous, however, in public because I'm worried I'm showing too much cleavage. I have had a lot of compliments on this dress, so I might just be self-conscious about the cleavage. Overall, LOVE this dress!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Listed as "Honeysuckle", which I assumed was the yellow piping, but arrived with pink piping. Fine with me because I like the pink piping better!
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very nice material - good quality seersucker with nice weight
- How accurate was the sizing? Very accurate - I normally wear a size 16, and this fits perfectly.
