Just Right

Very happy with my purchase! Ordered this dress size Large, I'm 5'3'', 160 lbs, and a 32 inch waist and it fit just right. Loved the fabric and how it stretches a little.

Loved it, was worried that the white might be too see through but was perfect!

Absolutely love it! I stumbled upon this website accidentally and fell in love. This is the first dress I've bought here and it's perfect. I'm 5'6", 125lbs and I typically wear a size 0-2 depending on brand. The extra small was just right and it looks like it will still have ample room even with a bigger chest size (I'm a 34A). The material has stretch to it and overall the dress feels well made. I might sew an extra couple snaps to the halter neck for added security because the large hook and eye closures feel a little loose. On the model, the skirt of the dress looks much more voluminous than the actual dress. I'm sure you have to buy a petticoat separate to achieve that poofy skirt look. Nevertheless I love the look of the dress without, it's very flattering and has a lot of movement. Overall very satisfied and can't wait to wear it out!

I bought this dress to change into for my wedding reception dance. It is so cute, fits great - can't wait to wear it. The stretch of the fabric ensures that it stays up, which is nice. It is not too see-through, although I will wear a nude bra just so no nips are spotted if I get sweaty, lol.

I so so so wanted this dress to work for me. It's like this lovely cross between two of the white dresses MM wears in The Seven Year Itch (Subway Halter meets Criss-Cross Wiggle Dress) and I thought it would be very adaptable to dress up or down. It just wasn't meant to be. As far as sizing, I'm actually at a loss how to explain it. It fit, technically and it looked lovely on me at first, very flattering. But, after about half an hour of wearing it around the house, I discovered that I had to constantly pull it back up just as though it were a strapless dress. I suspect this will not be a problem for ladies who are lucky enough to be more well-endowed. I think the design just doesn't work for my body type. I decided to return it for a store credit. That process is still ongoing (I just dropped off the dress at the post office two days ago), but so far I've been pleased with how easy it was to find a return label and so forth. Hopefully the rest goes just as smoothly. In the meantime, I am on the hunt for something to order in its place...
