    • Eh....Not for someone with normal sized boobs.
      Verified Purchase

      I was super excited to get this dress...until it actually came. :( The fabric is nice, and I LOVE the length. I am 5'9" and struggle finding maxi dresses that COVER my feet...this one was perfect for my height...maybe even just a 1/2" too long. BUT.... :( .... the bust part was made for someone with A cup boobs. Not someone like me who has DDs. Very disappointing. I was going to try and make it work becuase I love the design of the bust and the fabric, but a seamstress said she couldn't do anything to help it. I will be returning it unfortunately.

    • Black Bali Empress Maxi Dress
      Verified Purchase

      I ordered this dress to wear to a graduation party and received in almost a week later than it was supposed to arrive. When arriving, the dress was packaged okay. The dress material is very good quality and the color was a very nice black. When wearing the dress, I found that it was almost a size larger than I expected. I usually run pretty true to size and had a hard time keeping this dress up. Also, the dress is very long and has to be worn with heels. I am 5'6" and even with heels, I had to hold the dress to walk. Overall, I really like the dress and will probably pay to have in taken in. When ordering, I suggest to go down a size so that you can wear it without having to tug at the top constantly.

    Questions & Answers

    • Q:

      "Is there any stretch to this rayon fabric? Any idea what the hip measurement is on a size xl? Thanks!"

      • A:

        Hello gingerps! I love this dress! The fabric is a rayon jersey knit, so there is some stretch to the fabric. The waist measurement on the size XL is approximately 39 inches, and the dress seems to be a bit fuller at the hips, so I would estimate approximately 42 inches. I hope this helps. Thanks for shopping with us.

    • Q:

      "How long is a medium? I am 6'0". It looks long on the model, but that's never an indication how it will fit me."

      • A:

        I'm 5'5" with swimmers shoulders. I got a large & I need to wear a 31/2 -4 inch wedge & it sill hits the ground a bit.

      • A:
