I am planning on using this dress as the bridesmaid dresses for my Fall wedding. Be warned -- the dress is NOT gold. That being said, it's still a beautiful metallic champagne color that will pick up gold tones when placed next to it. This dress runs large (a full size if not 2 sizes large), which is great if you have a vast range of sizes to accommodate for. For reference, I am usually a S-M, and the XS is perfect on me. To address the "see through" concern. The dress is unlined, however, it's not completely see through as some had posted. I think wearing nude undergarments would solve the problem. Overall, the dress is very unique and looks expensive. The material used is nice, and can be shortened very easily as the hem is unfinished. I gave this dress 4 stars because the dress I received was not "as advertised", but it's still a beautiful dress!
I love this dress! I got it for my rehearsal dinner and it arrived yesterday. It is absolutely beautiful. I'm 5'3" and got a small, I'm going to need to get it hemmed because there is a good extra 6-8" of fabric. It's a little big in the shoulders, but nothing that a good seamstress won't be able to fix. I can't wait to wear this dress!
After reading all the reviews I decided to order. This dress looks silver to me - not gold. Photographed it looks a hint of gold... but in person looks completely silver. I was hoping to wear this to a wedding but don't want people to think I'm wearing white. I also ordered TWO sizes down and it fits nicely. It's elastic around the waist, so there is extra give. I am 5"2, 135-140lbs, ordered an XS. There are still 3-4 inches that will need to be hemmed off, if I'm wearing heels. This is a very long dress.
I felt absolutely beautiful in this dress.and receive so many compliments. Definitely a must-have dress! I'm 5'1
I too was called a greek goddess on the cruise ship. I wore this for Elegant night and the reviews and compliments I received were all so very positive. I did feel so wonderful in this dress. I ordered a large and really should have gone small or medium but I made it work ( was not sending it back because I planned on taking this on my cruise). The dress was to long but I just cut a few inches off and it was good to go, the material actually allows self trims. Excellent dress, love it ( and thanks Shanna for the recommendation)
I'm not kidding - people said I looked like a Greek Goddess in this dress. I bought the M and L, thinking I'd need the larger size as I often do and the medium fit. The small might have fit since this dress is very forgiving. It was super comfortable and perfect for my office gala. It was too long even with heels, as I expected (I'm average at 5'6"), but I can get it hemmed before I wear it again. Highly recommend for your next fancy event!
Am I the only one who feels like a walking golden globe while wearing it? Purchased it to get me through holiday parties and my rehearsal dinner. In love.
This dress is gorgeous. I was worried about the size after reading the reviews, a lot of people said this dress runs big. I am about 5'9 and 135 lbs and the Medium fit me perfectly! There is enough extra length to wear heels as well. It is a little sheer so a nude colored underwear or slip will be required. Other than that, I can't wait to wear this for NYE 2014!
I ordered two of these dresses, I'm a curvy girl. The medium fits well the large way too big. I'm 143lbs 5'6. This dress is soft, feel great and fits good, must be hemmed. I returned the large no problem! I'm wearing to. I'm wearing it to my niece's wedding!
I purchased this dress for my wedding rehearsal dinner. It is a great dress for the price. It is more of a champagne color than gold, but I still think it is beautiful. I typically order a medium in junior sized clothes and can wear a small in women's clothes and the small fit great. I am 5'7 and it is still long enough for me to wear heels. Can't wait to wear this dress!
I bought this dress for a Great Gatsby Gala and it's so glamorous! You can't beat the price! It does run large and fortunately I can sew and take it in to fit since the Small's are gone! If you're on the fence on this dress, just get it. I don't think you'd regret it. I'm normally a size 4 across the board and bought a Medium and it is big on the top, the skirt part fits perfectly though.
I ordered this dress for a wedding and it was perfect! The material is a little itchy-ish and thin but I felt so comfortable in it and the dress is very pretty! I am 5'4
Love, love, love this dress. I ordered this dress thinking that I maybe wouldn't like it much when it arrived but I could not have been more wrong. The hunt for the perfect dress for my friends wedding is finally over thanks to this dress. It's fits beautifully, it shows off all your good curves and hides all the unwanted ones. I myself am quite busty so I love the fact I can wear a good bra underneath and the deep v-neck at front and back shows off the perfect amount of skin. Colour is of a silver/gold and very eye catching. I think the dress looks better than the cost of it would indicate. All in all I am very pleased with my purchase x
Bought this dress for a bridesmaid for my wedding. It fits all body types. Of course, someone that is more blessed on top may fill it out better. Beware it is see through! This dress requires a slip. An easy fix. I also used this dress for a 1920's glamor photo shoot! It is glamorous and can be pulled off as a casual hippy look as well with sandals. If worn with sandals it will require to be hemmed! I am 5'5 125 lbs, small chested, and I need to hem it and probably wear a camisole bc I don't fill it out very well. I bought a size small it is great! The elastic also fits curvier body types. Versatile.
I've been looking for a long gold dress for an upcoming wedding... This definitely looks more silver instead of gold in person so I returned it. If you're going to wear it, you need a nude slip underneath. The length was perfect, but it was a little too big for me. I'm 5'2" 105 lb.
I really wanted to love this dress! The color is great, definitely would stand out. The downside is that it runs very big, the top was falling off of my shoulders. Also, it gave me no definition. I'm a petite person (5'2", 120), and it was not flattering on my figure. If I had some bigger boobs and a bigger butt, it might have been a little better! I think it's such a great dress, just not great for me.
Got this dress for my rehearsal dinner for 12/30. After reading other reviews I wasn't sure what to expect. I'm 5'8 130lbs and a very small chest. It fits great!!! Length is perfect even with heels! The shoulders don't stay up, but nothing like a little dress tape cant fix. It isn't as gold as the picture makes it seem. More like silvery, platinum color if that helps. I still love it though and can't wait to wear it!
I rarely write reviews. In fact, I don't think I've ever written one until now! I ordered this dress a few weeks ago along with a white Lucy love tallulah dress, and was going to pick between the two for my wedding rehearsal. I never received them =( of course, Lulu's customers service was more than accommodating. I was pretty bummed that the Lucy love dress was no longer in stock, and this dress only had a size Xsmall remaining. I took a leap of faith and ordered the xsmall (I'm typical a small) and it fit me PERFECTLY! The material is NOT see-through, as stated in other reviews. It is very long, which is okay. You can always make a dress shorter! I'm 5'5", and will not be wearing heels at my rehearsal, so I'll probably have to take a few inches off the length. I'm 120 pounds, with very high hips. The elastic waist lands in just the right spot, and my size 34d chest isn't hanging out. I actually look smaller chested in this maxi. I'm so pleased. It's a new favorite. It's casual, yet the shimmery material will not go unnoticed. =) can't wait for May!!
I got this in the mail a couple days ago. It's stunning. I'm petite, so I ordered XS, but since it runs large, I need to get the bottom of the dress hemmed, so that I don't trip on it... or rip it. Also I'm going to need to shorten the shoulder part, so that the bust part of the dress isn't as saggy. I have a dress similar to this one except shorter and much better quality, yet was only $80, which isn't that much more expensive than this dress... Anyway, I think this would be very cute to wear at holiday parties, or just out and about--which I wouldn't do, but if your feeling like a Greek Goddess... then go for it! xoxo Amelie
love this dress! super comfortable while being absolutely glamorous! the dress isn't lined
This Dress is very elegant, I can't wait to wear it on New Years Eve! I am 5"7 and 130lbs I got a small and it fits perfectly.
This dress is seriously amazing. I was hesitant to buy it because I'm 5'9 and weigh 130 pounds so I wasn't sure whether it was gonna be long enough or what size to get. I read all the reviews and ended up getting a small and it was perfect!! If you aren't sure about getting it you definitely should!
This dress looks absolutely gorgeous on! The fabric is thin but doesn't look cheap at all. I'm 5'9'' and usually have trouble finding maxi dresses long enough for me but I was thankful that it came down to the floor without heels. I have some hips
Gorgeous, so comfortable, effortless, and affordable. What more could you ask for?
I purchased this dress to wear as a bride's maid in my friend's wedding. It i s a beautiful material. It fits a bit baggy, but it gives a very relaxed look. When I original wanted to buy this dress it was out of stock. Then weeks later Lulus notified me that it was back. Worth the money and the wait!
5'9 135 lbs ordered small. I was very excited when I saw this dress and couldn't wait to get it. However I was also very disappointed with the material, it was so thin almost like aluminum foil with rice paper, luckily I have a long skirt to wear underneath otherwise I would feel like I'm wearing a night gown.
This is one of the most beautiful dresses I've ever had the pleasure of having. It fits perfectly! I got tons of comments all night. It was really long on me, even with 4 inch heels (I'm 5"4). I had to make it shorter (which I did myself). The fabric is a little thin, but isn't see through, as long as you avoid wearing extremely patterned undergarments. You won't regret this purchase!
I purchased 6 of these dresses for all of my bridesmaids. They definitely run large therefore I would suggest ordering a size smaller than usual. If not 2 sizes smaller depending on your body type. The dresses can read silver instead of gold so fair warning. However I loved them for my Gatsby vintage wedding and for my more voluptuous bridesmaids they also worked out up to a size 16 we just ordered the large. Good luck.
dress is not true to color mooks more silver than gold, also runs huge! have to return.
I bought this dress for prom and I can't wait to wear it! It is so beautiful and flattering. It is a few inches long but that is a quick fix. Definitely worth the price!
I saw this dress on Lulu's website and was sooooo excited when I ordered it. I couldn't wait for it to come in! when it came in the mail I was initially very excited.. until I put it on and stood in front of a lamp. This dress is SEE THROUGH. Honestly would not recommend purchasing unless you want a wardrobe malfunction. Rather disappointing. :(
This dress is gorgeous. I received so many compliments at a Great Gatsby-themed party. I'm 5'4" and the dress is pretty long. High heels are a must, or get it tailored like one of the other reviewers did. I also tied a black rope belt around the elasticized waist. Love the dress. Highly recommend buying it.
It's a pretty dress, the material has a strange texture to it, but nothing that will draw your attention the whole night. I think the straps are too wide, so I will try to modify them. Overall, its a nice dress, although runs large; I have a large chest and would normally do a large but the medium fits perfectly.
I bought this dress for a wedding. I am 5'7 and about 128 lbs I order the small and the dress was very big. I sent it back for the x-small and that still was a little big. I ended up sending that back as well. Very pretty dress but up close the fabric looked a little cheap. If it fit I would have probably kept it but would not have worn it to the wedding maybe a girls night out.
I bought this dress as either a wedding reception dress or my rehearsal dinner dress. I wanted something non-traditional, but elegant and that would still make me stand out and look like a bride. When I got this dress in the mail, I was over the moon because it is PERFECT. It is so elegant and flattering, and it is unbelievably comfortable. I'm 5'5", and even with heels, it was quite a bit too long. However, I'm very pleased with my purchase and I will definitely be wearing it in one of the events surrounding my wedding.
The fit of this dress is beautiful
The dress is like plastic not my style. Nice on picture tho.
This dress is more Silver than it is gold. I wish it was more gold and that's why I ordered this dress. It looks very pretty and classy when you wear it and I love the way it flows. It's a beautiful dress but i just wish it was more gold. Other than that, its a perfect dress for any occasion.
The fabric is light, and there is no lining, but you expect that with a $50 dress. It actually met expectations as far as quality and fit goes. It runs large. But the dress is not gold. It's silver. Unquestionably. The color of the dress does match the color in the photo on the website. So that was a huge disappointment.
The dress is definitely Silver not Gold, and not for someone who has a flat chest. I am 5'5", 120lbs, and athletic, ordered a small and it was way too long and very baggy around the bust and overall a beautiful dress if it fits you, but it definitely did not fit me.
I ordered this dress to wear to my "Roaring 20s" wedding shower, and first off... the color is much more silver than it is gold. I read one review before ordering that said it was a champagne.. but really it's silver and nothing like the picture. I was happy to read the reviews saying it ran large/long because it was only available in a size Small- i'm 5'7 and 140lbs small waist, large bum... the Small is pretty large on me. Length is great for heels, but makes me look large because it's not fitted enough in the waist or top. Despite the color issue and very loose fit, I may still wear it, but will have to get it altered.
I ordered this in XS for a wedding. It's very pretty. IN certain lighting, it looks a bit like shimmering ivory. The color is not a true bold gold. Very iridescent. The material is super thin like a cheap halloween costume. Length wise was good except I'm so petite I will need to get it hemmed. The empire drop waist is great and not too tight. The should part is a bit loose
This dress really is gorgeous! I'm 5'7 so the length even with heels on could not be anymore perfect! I'm wearing it for my birthday dinner. I'm wearing it simple. but you could really dress this up for an event. If I was still in undergrad I would wear this to a formal!
I bought this dress even though I had seen other reviews that stated the dress was not gold. It's definitely not gold. It's silver. If you are wanting this dress for the gold color, do not get it. But if you are wanting the dress for the style/fit, it seemed like a decent dress.
This dress looked really cute on the model and in an uploaded photo, but I had to resort to ordering up a size since my size was sold out, and unfortunately the top of the dress would not stay put. Other reviews said it can be taken in, but the very thin material doesn't look like it would hold up too well with any pinning or tucking, and the top did not lay flat when I held it closed with my hand where it would need to be taken in. Unfortunately, I'll be returning this dress, wish it was available in smaller sizes!
While I still think the dress looks gorgeous on the site's model, in person this dress is a disappointment. The fabric looks and feels cheap and is fairly see-through. I tried ordering a size down to avoid any boxiness - but the waistline doesn't seem to run evenly around the dress causing it to hang awkwardly. It's a great dress in theory but looked terrible once on. I ended up returning mine.
RESPONSE FROM LULUS.COM: We're sorry to hear that this dress left you underwhelmed! LuLu*s Customer Service is here for you and always happy to help if an item does not live up to your expectations (http://www.lulus.com/customer-service.html). We appreciate you taking the time to write a review!
after deciding on gold for my bridesmaid dresses, I became obsessed with this one! There were so many mixed reciews but I ordered all of the sizes for my girls to try on anyway. They look NOTHING like the picture. The material is very thin and you can definitely see undergarments. There is no real shape to the dress and hangs weird on every body type that I had try it on. I really wish it looked like it does on the model because it would have been perfect for my big day!
This dress is quite pretty in person. Like others mentioned, it's a bit long but it works out if you're wearing heels. The fabric is lightweight so avoid colourful undies. At times, the front of the dress had to be pinned in place to avoid a wardrobe malfunction.
This dress is amazing I'm 5'3 and it was a bit too long but I got it tailored and now its perfect
I read the reviews that the dress did not have a lining. I figured, no big deal I can just wear nude color undergarments. However, the material is so transparent you would need a full length slip with the dress. That is not something I was interested in. Also the fabric felt cheap.
