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
This dress fit me like a dream and was very comfortable and true to size. The similar dress of R&M cascading Ruffle detail dress ran a bit smaller. I am busty so that was the issue with the other dress but this one was no problem. Its not low cut, flattering and slimming.
This dress drapes beautifully. My only problem with it is that the back of the dress was shorter than the front of the dress. But I am giving it another chance by reordering it. The navy blue color is brighter than it appears on line which I was hoping for.
