      I bought this dress three days before a wedding and although paid for quick shipping it was worth every penny. I put this dress on and was shocked and how wonderful I looked. I am 5'4" 165 and it made me look much thinner. I bought the large after reading all the reviews and it fit beautifully. I did not have to hem it and had low maybe 2-1/2 inch heels and the gone had about a half inch to almost an inch above the floor. The gown moves beautifully and it was the first time I didn't want to take a dress off because it was so comfortable. Love it!!!

    • Definitely not good for every body type
      Verified Purchase
      Option: Creme - L | Creme - M

      First, a little body-type background. I am 5' 7.5", currently 158 to 160 pounds, a small 32D or E maybe even a 30E or F depending on the fit of the bra but I am not full busted. To compare, I'm probably similar to an A or small B. With a padded bra my bust measurement is on average 36.5", my underbust is 31.5", the smallest part of my waist ranges from 30" to 32" (depending on medical issues that cause bloating and stomach fullness) I have a lower stomach pooch that, measured with the top of my hips, comes to about 40" and my full bottom and curvy hips are currently about 41.5" to 42". So roughly I am 36-31-42. My inseam is 33" with the length from the top of my hip bone to the floor being around 38" or 39". So my legs are more than half of my height. I have fairly prominent saddle bags as well. I'm a mix of an hourglass and a pear shape. More so of a pear when slightly out of shape like I am right now. I am never quite sure how something will fit because cut, fabric, and amount of stretch make a world of difference from one product to the next. I tried this dress in a Medium as well as a Large. MEDIUM: The medium was a little snug in the midsection but not overly so. I absolutely saw my undergarments through the dress and the edges created very prominent bumps. I also saw cellulite through the skirt. The dress feels like it rides high on me with the sides being very high up under my arms in a way I found to be uncomfortable. The bust sits awkwardly on me. It covers me but it doesn't sit in a way that flatters my curves and no amount of fiddling with it would fix that. If I lift my arms the whole dress lifts up on me. The stomach ruching stops just above my lower stomach pooch. This is also the area where the curve of my hips starts so all in all the seam falls exactly where it is not flattering on me. It makes my stomach area look short and squatty, enhances the stomach pooch while making my hips look bigger. The biggest issue for me was how short the dress was. I am 5'7.5" and standing barefoot this dress did not touch the floor in front of me. The back was a number of inches SHORTER than that. The dress is cut straight across so with a full, round backside like mine, it lifts up the backs of dresses and skirts in a way that will make a straight hemline look uneven. LARGE: Basically the exact same fit as the medium except this time the stomach area was a little too roomy in the back. Again a common issue for someone with a smaller waist with a fuller hip and bum area. And, again, the length. The back was still too short. And by short I mean that it rests above my ankles while the front might almost touch my toes. So it is very noticeable. I tried pulling the front of the dress up higher while also pulling the back down in an attempt to even out the hemline. No such luck. It might sit that way for a minute but as soon as I moved again it would shift back to it's original position. I bought a slip to wear underneath and my undergarments STILL showed through. So the bumps and color showed through a slip, the inner liner of the dress, as well as the outer layer of the skirt. A thicker slip might help but I don't have one of those so I can't speak to its effectiveness. And the skirt hangs in a way that The dress was wrinkled. Not a huge problem but good to know for those who might be expecting it to be completely wrinkle-free. I paired the dress with a black sweater bolero as well as a thick belt curved to fit around the hips. It definitely balances out my body shape but doesn't help the length issue or the bust issue. Despite my problems, the dress really is nice. It's a nice fabric and color (even on my very pale/fair skin) and I love the flowy skirt. But at the end of the day it does not work for my body type. My body type would require a longer torso, longer skirt and potentially longer shoulder straps. I know this was long but I hoped it helped. Have a great day everyone! :)

      Option: Navy - XL

      I am 5'4" about 200 lbs and this dress is great! I got the XL in Navy and love it, the fit is amazing, and it is so comfortable. I got it to wear to the Marine corps ball and it is perfect. The only thing im changing is the drop down sleeves, im just attaching them to the straps. It's cute with the sleeves but i prefer to have it up. Also, i ordered it in the middle of the night and it came the next afternoon!!! Overstock is awesome, i am definitely shopping on here more often!

      Option: Black - XL

      I purchased this dress based on the sizing chart (bought an XL....actually took my measurements to be sure) and ordered accordingly and it fit beautifully !!!!! It's very slenderizing, especially if you have an hourglass figure (D cup bust). The XL is really not huge and seems to appear more in line with a large. You definitely have to buy the dress according to your bust size on the size chart. I'm 5 ft 31/2 inches and may need to have it hemmed and inch or two depending on the shoes I choose to wear. The dress will be worn to my daughter's wedding this summer and was chosen because it's more youthful looking than traditional MOB dresses. The material is not extravagant; however, it looks elegant enough on as others previously posted. A great buy!!!!!!

    • Very long but very nice
      Verified Purchase
      Option: Navy - L

      I'm 5"7 and a size 14. I got the large size and it fits very nice. It was actually too long but my aunt was able to take it up about 3 inches in the front. She did it at the waist line and said it was really easy to do since it is double layered. It looks beautiful and feels comfortable. I can wear a normal bra with it. The material is very heavy so should keep me warm for the wedding this weekend.

    • A keeper!
      Verified Purchase
      Option: Creme - M

      After reading the reviews, I ordered this dress to wear for my outdoor August wedding. And I love it! The wrinkles from shipping do just fall right out when you hang it up! I was a little concerned about the fit when I ordered (ordered a Med.), but it fits great, and is very flattering. I'm not skinny by any means, nor am I very tall. The fabric fits the body, but has enough "give" in it to be forgiving of a few xtra lbs.and actually smooths out those "lumpy areas" on the backside. If ordering definitely measure yourself, as the sizes are very true to the measurements. The only area that may be an issue is the bust line. I measure 36" in that area around the fullest part of the bust, but my cup size is a DD, so it's a bit snug there. The color is more of a winter white than cream, too, but it still works perfectly for me. I did note, when reading the reviews, that no one had referenced their measurements to give a better idea of fit, so I'll be brave and put mine up - 5'6" (two to three inch heels will keep the hem off the floor for someone my height) 145lbs 34DD-28-39. And yeah, I have that little belly "chub" that another reviewer mentioned, but found the the drop-waist style actually fell below that area on me, thereby covering the "chub" with the ruched area. All-in-all I am very glad I ordered the dress, and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a flattering, easy-care dress.

      Option: Lavender - L | Navy - L | Navy - XL

      I wore this dress to my cousins wedding in california. It was amazing and I got lots of compliments on it. I usually wear a size 12 or 14 sometimes and I am a 38DD, so I ordered the L and XL. The XL was waaaayyy too big for me. If you are a size 12, I would order a Large. It flows very easily and was very comfortable.

    • Love it!
      Verified Purchase
      Option: Navy - XL

      This dress feels wonderful on. It's a stretchy knit fabric and yet it doesn't feel cheap or thin. It's fully lined which makes it very comfortable since the lining hugs you while you wear it, making you feel like everything is kind-of held in, while the outer fabric drapes nicely. I thought the double strap thing on the top was a little busy so I dropped the "bra" straps onto my shoulders and stitched them to the "dropped" straps on the sides so they would meet in the middle and stay together. It made the top of the dress into more of a portrait neckline which I liked much better. I had to hem it a little and since the middle is ruched I just pulled it up an inch or two at the waist and tacked it on the sides which added another drape to the bottom of the ruching but effectively hemmed my dress without me having to cut anything. It is a great dress and was very easy to adapt.

      Option: Creme - L

      I bought this dress for my upcoming wedding. I ordered the creme but it really is much closer to white than off white. The dress is very flattering and very comfortable. The waist has some draping in front so that it hides any bumps you may have. The only alteration I had to do was to the draping off the shoulder, this was very loose to the point that it looked sloppy but after the alterations it fits perfect! It is long, I am 5'6" and bought the large. I am wearing shoes with a heel of at least 3 1/2 inches so the dress won't be dragging on the ground. Also, there is a built in slip but it is still see through so I will have to wear another slip too.

    • Classically beautiful
      Verified Purchase
      Option: Navy - L | Navy - M

      Got it in Navy, and when I put it on it fit like it was made for me...If you like your shoulders it will make them look even better, and the bust is designed perfectly. The material is weighty enough to drape beautifully. My daughter who is not a fan of long dresses, said it was amazing on and the extra shoulder strap that drop was very sexy.. If you are on the boarderline for sizing, go one size down. I am 5'6" 135 lb and typically wear a size 8 or 10 depending on style. I bought a medium and a large...sent the large back. Bought both sizes as there were only 2 mediums left at the time and boy am I glad I did as the sizing chart said I should buy a large, but I had a feeling something was amiss.. I am 57 and may wear it to get married in, it is that gorgeous and elegant on...great price to for qualtiy

      Option: Black - XL

      This dress is absolutely gorgeous and stunning. It is perfect for those of us who are a bit curvier than most women. The dress came very quickly, it was in a dress bag, no seem slips or any flaw could be found on the dress, it wasn't even wrinkled. I would suggest this dress to those who are going to a formal that is in a cooler area. Definitely not the right material if you are going to be in a very warm area. The dress is also heavy, which I knew it would be, due to the sort of material it's made out of but other than that, I love it. And it looked amazing on stage for my symphony performance!

      This is one fab dress. I know, I doubted it could be SO great--I am looking for a hip dress to wear as a 50-year-old bride this coming June, and I thought I'd give this a try in ivory. I LOVE it. Love it. It is flattering and elegant and, most important, comfortable. I was going to torture myself to lose 20 pounds--this dress actually looks great on me right now! I recommend it highly.

    • Perfect!

      I love this dress!I bought the similar dress with sleeves before and was very satisfied, so I bought this one without any hesitation. And it was a great purchase. I think this is more elegant.

      Option: Navy - XL

      Every good review for this dress is true. It does look great, fits great, and I believe it would be great for travelling, which is exactly what I need for my sister's wedding in the fall. The only bad thing I can really say about this dress is that I wish it were a couple of inches longer. I'm 6 ft tall, and for me to wear heels, the dress would hit right at the top of my ankles, so the whole shoe will show. Other than that, this dress is great, and any woman would feel pretty wearing it....

    • WOW!

      Option: Navy - M | Navy - S

      I fell in love with this dress right out of the box. The quality of the material to the simple beauty and when I put it on I was blown away. I read the reviews of ladies tall, short, very thin to very not so thin and decided to try it. I am 5'7" and ordered a small navy and it fit like a glove, the length was even spot on. Great with any color high heels and you are in business.

      Verified Purchase
      Option: Navy - XS

      This dress looks great on and, for a clingy fabric, is very forgiving due to the strategic design (also, i bought it in a dark color, navy). It slips on and off easily and can be tossed in an overnight bag without wrinkling. Only problem as others have mentioned is it is cut quite long and i had to spend an extra 45 dollars at a very reasonably priced tailors to have it taken up.

      I bought this dress for my daughters wedding. It is well constructed & the color is true navy. I ordered a small. I usually buy a 5/6. The fit was very good. The fabric has excellent weight to it & it's lined so you won't need a slip. The gathered bodice is flattering on my small chest. I'm 5'4" . I will need to shorten the length. I certainly will consider other clothes from this company.
