Great dress, looks just like the picture in person. Good quality, great for wedding/ bridesmaid dress. Runs a bit small in size and very long/ likely best for long/lean body types, but overall a beautiful dress.
So gorgeous dress, I wasn't sure about ordering a dress online but I was really impressed, excellent quality! Lovely dress
This dress is AMAZING!! I am 5'10" and am a 34D and it fit perfectly in a small! Very classy and sexy at the same time. I plan to wear it to my wedding reception!! Love, love, love this dress!
This dress looks exactly like it does in the photo. It's a little long on me, even with high heels (I'm 5'5), but that was an easy fix at the tailor. The dress was also a tiny bit too big in the bust (I'm a 32B) but was able to get that taken in as well. But even with the alterations, overall this is a beautiful dress for a great price!!
Beautiful dress. I love it.
This dress came exactly like it was depicted on the photo, it is completely flawless and amazingly elegant. You feel like a million bucks in this dress. The fit was great and the fabric was flowy and graceful. The colour was as expected and more, it was exactly what I needed for my ball as it verged on elegance and sexy at the same time. I will surely shop from Lulus again as the products are great and are delivered exactly on time. Thank You
I bought an XS for a wedding I will be attending in October. I was thrilled to see this dress come in stock because I was absolutely in love with it. I'm 5'8" and 120 lbs, this dress fit strangely. The tag says XS is a size 8, which is, by normal standards, an M (4 is S, 2 is XS, 0 is XXS). With that being said, I don't think an XXS would fit me either. The dress is also too long even with 5" heels. It would be nice if it had an attachment to hold the dress train up while walking. I think the dress would fit curvy people better.
Get this dress. That's all I have to say because this was hands down the best purchase I've ever made. I wore it to my senior prom and got compliments on it all night! So classy and elegant. I had to get the straps and length shortened (I'm 5'4, 130 and got a size S), but this dress fits like a glove and was beyond flattering! Will wear again in a heartbeat.
I am 5'6 and 135 pounds with a generally large rib cage (34 or 36) and the dress fit perfectly! The length was crazy long even with tall heels on and since the fabric is difficult to work with, the hemming cost was kind of expensive. Other than that the dress was so pretty! The bigger your breasts are, the better it will fit because I'm a C cup and it would pop out if I leaned forward. Awesome design though!
I'm 5'8, 135 pounds, 34B/C and my waist is 25". Ordered this dress in a XS because I had read that it ran large. Wow! it fits absolutely perfectly and looks stunning. Don't be afraid to size down!! the dress is long even with heels but looks amazing nonetheless. Strongly recommend investing in this dress! (I was worried that the cleavage would be too much but its perfectly appropriate and looks very classy)
I bought this dress for my junior prom. I rarely write reviews, but this dress was so perfect I couldn't resist! I am 5'4 and 145 pounds and ordered a medium. The bodice fit perfectly, but the dress was waay too long and the straps were very loose. After some alterations the dress fit like a glove. I received so many compliments and felt beautiful. I want to wear this dress again and again I love it so much!! I will say that you shouldn't order this dress if you're not comfortable with showing cleavage. It may be because I'm a D36 so the girls were lifted up, but I had many comments about my chest!
I bought this dress for my bridesmaids to try on. It looked amazing. Quality and detail was gorgeous and they all loved it. I have just placed an order for 4 more.
I'm 5' 3" with measurments 33-30-34 and this dress fit perfectly! The only alterations I needed were the straps and the length of the dress. I wore it for prom and I got endless compliments on it! I honestly wish I could wear it again because it was so flawless!
I wore this dress to a gala on a boat and it was beautiful. I received a TON of compliments on it, saying I looked like a movie star in an Oscars dress! I liked how the fit was tighter around my stomach so I never had to worry about it during dinner. The cleavage is very deep, which I was slightly uncomfortable with, but my boobs looked awesome and they got a lot of compliments too haha. Would highly recommend this dress to anyone!
I'm 5'6, 125 pounds, and a 32B. I ordered an XS and it fits perfectly! The dress arrived in about a week and I'm very happy with my purchase. Like other reviews have said, the dress is very long! I'm planning on wearing 5 inch heels with it, and it still drags on the floor a bit. Overall it's a gorgeous dress, so simple but so stunning!
I purchased this dress for my prom and I am in love! I was nervous about the fit but it was perfect! Thank you LuLu's!
Beautiful dress-- got tons of compliments all night. I'm a 34B-C and cleavage only happens if you want it to or are bigger in cup size. Measurements are 34-28-36 and I got a size Small. Size zip made it a little hard to zip up the ribs to the top of the chest but it fits just alright with a little assistance and looks beautiful.
I am wearing this dress as the Maid of Honor in my cousin's wedding. Her and I both loved the elegance and style of this dress. I am 5'7, 115 pounds and a 34B and I got this dress in a size small, it is a little bit big in the top/chest area so I just have to do small alterations to it, but nothing too drastic to make me go down a size. Overall I love this dress and I am so excited to wear it!
Genuinely the most beautiful dress I've ever put on. I'm wearing it to prom! Im usually a medium in everything but the reviews got me to buy a small. Im 5'3 and 135-140 lbs, and it fits pretty snug, but since its only tight in the ribs, its perfect. I legitimately cannot stop trying this dress on and showing everyone, I 100% recommend this dress! Just go down a size :)
After reading other reviews I decided on getting an xs (best idea!) I'm usually a small or xsmall and wear a 32B bra and I'm 5''7 in height (for reference). The shipping came within 9 business days and the dress came perfectly packed with no damages, I did have to pay $28 for customs since it did come from the states but it wasn't a big deal.The dress fits perfectly and I'm wearing it to my boyfriends grad. It is very long on me and the shoulder straps are a bit bigger BUT I'm planning on getting it altered so it doesn't really make a difference. All in all the dress is very beautiful and a great purchase.
I love this dress. I am 5'8" 135 pounds and a x-small fits me great. the shoulder straps are a little long, but other then that its perfect. If you are not interested showing cleavage, i would not get this dress. It has a very low v- cut. it isn't too much boobage but it is some. I am a 34B almost C and i a definitely fill out the cups. I don't know how the larger sizes are, but if you are blessed with boobs you might fall out of the dress. Overall the dress is wonderful and classic
I am 4'11", 100-105lbs, and I am able to wear 32A/32B bras, only to compensate for the fact that I'm actually a 28/B, but they don't really make that size in bras. I ordered XXS, and this dress is incredibly long, which was a minus, but once I got it altered, it was perfect. The straps were also just slightly too long for me, but I took them in and I've never felt more beautiful in a dress. I've been out to a date with my boyfriend, I've went to a ball, and I plan to wear this to a few weddings. This dress is probably the best dress purchase I've ever made.
(**This dress runs big, so definitely size down.) This dress is absolutely beautiful... but if you have big boobs, trust me, it's not going to work. I read all of the reviews and even though I knew the plunging neckline might be too much, I ordered it anyway. For reference: I'm 5'4, 34DD, 27" (waist), 36" (hips). I ordered the small and it fit perfectly... EXCEPT for the boobs. They were propped up and looked totally inappropriate. You can't hide them or tuck them in, the overwhelming cleavage will be unavoidable. You will be the center of attention and not in a good way. I tried everything to make this work because I love the dress, but my boobs made the decision for me. They don't fit. If you don't have a big chest, this dress will look amazing. It hugs in all the right areas, but man, if you're a full C and up, this dress is not for you.
Love this dress it was so beautiful! It actually gave me a waist which I certainly do not have!
Love love this dress! I'm a 34B and usually wear Xs or Small, I ordered an XS, fits perfectly.
This dress is absolutely gorgeous and very flattering. I bought it for my junior prom and I can't wait to wear it! I'm 5'4", measurements 39-28-40, and I initially ordered a small to see if it would fit because that was the only size in stock at the time and the dress was so beautiful that I thought it may be worth a shot. Unfortunately, no, it didn't work, and I had to send it back, but luckily all sizes were quickly restocked. I decided to go up two sizes rather than just one because there had been some pretty significant gapping at my bust/ribcage. This was a good choice; I have plenty of room to move around and breathe, which is great since I'll be doing a lot of dancing ☺ I'll have to have it hemmed, but this was no surprise given my height. I'll have the straps taken up, a bit, too, I think, but there are no major issues. In short, if you're curvy or busty, I'd definitely reccomend ordering your true size or ordering by the chart with reference to your bust. I can't wait to wear this dress, no major complaints!! ☺
I ordered an XS after reading all the reviews about it running slightly larger. In women's sizes I'm typically a 0 or 2. That said, there are some smaller fitting clothes that I purchase a 4 in. My measurements are 34-26-36. I wear a very full B-cup or a smaller C-cup bra. This dress had a snug fit for my chest area . It fit my rib cage also snug. That said, it isn't at all uncomfortable or what I would call tight. It gives me support and accents my small waist. I am 5-8 and 135lbs. It is slightly too long on me with heels such that it does sit on the ground (and would drag) and occasionally, I would step on it in 4" heels. Going to get it hemmed but aside from that...NOTHING ELSE because it is SIMPLY STUNNING. It does show some breast, but not too much and in a VERY tasteful way. When I asked my hubby what the first word was that he thought of when he saw it either elegant or sexy, he chose "stunning" and that's saying a lot because he is definitely a chest type of guy.
This dress is gorgeous!! Looks even better that I expected! Quality is very good and size is just perfect. Can't wait to wear it!
Basically this dress is gorgeous!! Was abit big around the shoulders and length wise but other than that it's perfect. Only took 2 weeks to come and I could track it! Defiantly worth a purchase!! Just as beautiful as the picture.
Absolutely stunning dress. Typically I purchase smalls, I'm 5'7 with a 26 in waist and 34 C bust but the xs fit perfectly! It is long, definitely will have to get it hemmed, but so worth it. I've been eyeing this dress for over a year and so glad I got it. The support for the girls is great too, well padded. Can't wait to show it off at prom!
When i saw this dress on Pinterest, i was immediately in love! i waited for it to come in stock and man was it worth it! it came in only 2 1/2 weeks and was in absolutely perfect condition! Not a single wrinkle! I tried it on immediately and IT FIT PERFECTLY! I don't need a single alteration - it'd perfectly snug around the ribcage and the bust fits perfectly (i'm a 32 D - so medium sized around the chest). It wasn't even too long - and I'm 5'5/5'6. I was soapy i din't have to do alterations! The dress makes my waist and boobs look amazing and the fabric and colour are beautiful - and the dress is SO COMFORTABLE! I'm so excited to wear it to prom! i definitely recommend this dress - just get someone to help measure you and follow those and it will fit perfectly! So worth it!
I'm typically between US sizes 4 and 6 and originally ordered a medium. Glad I was able to return for the small because it was just too big. That being said, I'm still going to need alterations on the small...the shoulder straps are a bit too long (I prefer my girly bits not make an appearance) and the dress is SOOOOO long. I suppose I should've noticed- it's mentioned that the model is like 5'7" and wearing heels and the dress is STILL dragging on the floor. Regardless of the added hassle of having to get it altered, I still think it's a beautiful dress and a great purchase!
This is for my daughter's graduation and it looks exactly as it is pictured. It will require only slight alterations to take it in as she is very thin. Very classy dress.
This dress is so beautiful. I got it for a deb ball, and was concerned that it would be too revealing for the event because of the picture shown. However, it looked great (even without a bra) and the **** isn't nearly as high as it looks in the picture. One thing to note about this dress is that it is very long (I am 6ft tall in heels and the seamstress still had to take off a good 4 inches that I was stepping on). It looks so elegant. I am wearing it with nude heels that I got from Lulus last year, and the "geo du jour cutout gold clutch." I was going to wear it with the "You're Pearl-fect Gold and Pearl ear jackets," but sadly they broke the day I got them :(
The dress exceeded my expectations . Well done and the fabric is good quality . This one is classic ! Measurements were the table and required adjustment only in the bar. The customer service was efficient and on-time delivery . I and my daughter were very happy with the purchase. I want to buy more often . Thank you, Lulus !
This dress is BEAUTIFUL! I read through all the reviews and listened to the majority. I usually wear a small or medium and decided to go with a small and it was a perfect fit. The only issues I had were with the straps which were falling off my shoulders (but I will be getting them shortened) and the chest area was a bit large (I have fairly small breasts but I will add some extra padding). If you don't mind paying a little extra for some slight alterations I definitely recommend this dress it looks just like the pictures and the quality is amazing.
It is a lovely, classy, gown with just the right amount of sexy. I wore it to a charity ball and got so many compliments. It does run large, specifically in the straps. I am 5'7 and usually wear a size 2/4 and ordered a small. I wish I had ordered an extra small, but I made it work by just wearing a lot of padding in the chest area. It is a dress that requires a specific type of bra, something with a deep v allowance. It's also a tad long. Even though it could have fit better, I truly love this dress. It's very flattering if you have nice shoulders, arms, and a nice waist.
This dress is gorgeous!!!! I'm so glad I got it the minute it came available. I checked back 4 days later and it was totally sold out!!! I'm glad I got the large. I'm a 34 DDD so it's pretty sexy but in a good way I'm getting the straps shortened and hemmed a bit. Mine did have a flaw in it thoug. The strap that drapes across the arm was sewn so it's twisted but I'll just have to get it fixed I guess. It's not worth sending it back and waiting (hoping) for a new one.
Absolutely beautiful. Great material
its beautiful! however VERY long. I am 5'3 and am wearing 6 inch heels however i had to have about 4 inches cut off and about 1/2- an inch from the straps. I am wearing this to a gala and can't wait
Beautiful ELEGANCE Is an understatement! Typically I prob would have ordered the xxs or the xs. I normally am 105-110 5'2 and 34C...However, I was looking for a dress that was flowy in the belly because I am 8 months pregnant now about 133lbs,
For reference, I am 5'1 and my measurements are 34D, 27, 35. I typically wear mediums and I ordered a medium. First of all, this dress is gorgeous! It fits beautifully and I'm sure it would look beautiful on ANY body type (the mid section is very forgiving and slimming,it hid my annoying little belly bulge very well lol!) I originally ordered a small because a lot of the reviews said that the dress runs a little larger, but let me tell you, I could not zip my girls in! Had to exchange for a medium (btw, Lulu's exchange process was very quick and easy, awesome customer service). Even with the medium, I couldn't wear it with a bra, which is fine, the dress fits well without one. So if are busty, I would suggest ordering your true size or even sizing up, because there is not much room up there. I had to have my shoulder straps taken up, as well as the hem (no surprise there, I'm 5'1!!). So if you are hesitant, don't be! The dress is gorgeous and will make you feel even more so.
I'm about 5'9" and 34A (for reference if needed) and at my height I was skeptical about purchasing online. But the process was very quick and helpful! Very pleased with the company and how it handled my order. Second, the dress is B-E-A-UTIFUL! It fits perfectly, the quality is great, and even with my height there is room left to hem the bottom. Very pleased and will be finding more places to wear this gown!
This dress is absolutely gorgeous and very well made! I am wearing it as a bridesmaid dress for my friends wedding. It runs quite long, I'm 5.4" and will need to take off at least a foot- foot and a half. I also need to have the straps adjusted, other than that, this dress is perfect!!
I bought this dress for a wedding this past weekend. My husband loved it and I got so many compliments. The color was spot on and the fit was great! I am a 32C and the bust fit well with my strapless bra, it was a tad too low and revealed way too much of the girls so I had it stitched up a bit. I am 5'2 so I went into this purchase knowing I would have this hemmed which is totally fine because I felt it was worth it. I honestly feel so beautiful in this dress! It is super flattering and is not too sexy. I'm so happy I got this dress I didn't want to take it off haha. I look forward to wearing it to future formal events.
I purchased this dress online and I absolutely love it. I am 5' tall, so I had to get the dress hemmed and I also had them take in the top shoulder straps a bit. I have a large bust (36DD) and taking in the straps helped to keep the top up a bit, because there was a bit too much cleavage going on. When I was at the tailor trying it on, a customer walked in and immediately told me how pretty the dress was, and I agreed. The color is just right. I can't waot to wear it this weekend to my friend's formal wedding.
I was so unbelievably happy with this dress!! I had compliments all night saying how beautiful it was and it was very comfortable all night. The dress is very long (I'm 5'11) that it still touched the ground when I had heels. However, its better than it being too short. I ordered a M and I'm usually at 12-14 aus sizes and it fit very well, it was just a little big at the top but it was easily fixed with a u-bra and some dounle sided tape (must have!).
I am in love with this dress! I ordered it for a military ball in November and I'm so excited to wear it. I'm glad I ordered early as it is LONG and I'm going to have to get it hemmed, but other than that it fits perfectly and looks amazing!
I ordered a Small of this dress, and it came in 6 days which was a pleasant surprise. The measurements were definitely true to size, the waist fit me like a glove. Unfortunately, I did have to have the bust altered because there was no give at all and I couldn't zip it up past the base of my 39inch bust (I got the Small purely for the waist size). But, the alterations went smoothly and you can hardly even tell - now that it fits me properly, this is the perfect dress! I can't wait to show it off at formal
I ordered this dress for a military ball, and my fiancee LOVES it. Would highly recommend for small chested women. I ordered a size XS. I am short and petite at 5'1 and 110Ibs, cup size 34A. This dress is absolutely stunning! I ordered it keeping in mind that I will have to get it altered, but other than that it was perfect. It fits like a glove! Usually I would order a size small, but I read that this dress fits better if you order a size down. The material is a nice quality and soft. Wrinkled a bit at the bottom during packaging. Other than that, a perfect dress!
This dress is absolutely stunning! i bought it for prom and couldnt be happier. The only problem I found was that it ran very large. I purchased a small but had to exchange it for an xxs immediately. They handled the exchange very quickly so I had time to shorten the dress and straps considering im only 5'. Overall I would recommend this dress to anyone, because its so flattering and will leave you very confident!
Beautiful dress and I am sure I will be receiving many compliments on it. I bought to wear to the 2 weddings I have coming up. I ordered a small after reading other reviews and fits perfect minus the fact that it is SO long and definitely need to get it hemmed along with bringing the straps up a bit. I am 5'5" 135-140lbs 34B with 29" waist. It fits like a glove. Looking forward to wearing it!
I've had my eye on this dress for months and was ecstatic when they restocked the XXS. It turned out to be a little bit bigger than I planned. I'm definitely going to need some hemming done at the bottom even with heels (I'm 5'3). And I also have to add some padding to the top part as well so it doesn't leave space in between my bra and the dress. Other than that, it is truly elegant and simple. I bought this dress for a formal and I'm really looking forward to wearing it - very classy.
I cannot begin to tell you how much I LOVE this dress. It fit just right. Color is spot on. Everything about this dress. I cannot get enough!
Beautiful dress ! Loved !
The reviewers were right! This dress runs big so DO order smaller. I first ordered a small and it was too big! So I ordered an XS and it fits very well. I'm 5'5 and 3/4 and a 32 C. The dress is long, so I might have to get it hemmed. I can't wait to wear this dress! I may need to buy a special type bra to wear with the dress because it cuts just low enough to show the bra strap going across the chest. I initially bought this dress to wear to the Creative Arts Emmy's, but now I can't attend this year! I kept the dress because it is a good investment. I will find an occasion to wear it!
I am 5'3, size 29 waist, ordered a small. It fit perfectly around the waist, but the straps were rather long and there was a bit too much space in the chest (34 B). I'm planning on wearing it to prom so I will definitely need to get it altered and hemmed, but I'm very happy with my purchase!
I ADORE this dress! I am 34(B-C)-26-34, 5'2" and I got the x-small. It fit like a glove, slightly tight around the chest, but that was best as it held the girls up nicely without a bra. Fashion tape is a must with this. I felt like a goddess in this dress :)
I've never loved a dress more. And I've never been so heartbroken when one didn't fit. This dress is beautifully made and would have been perfect for the Marine Corps ball I have coming up. Unfortunately I didn't realize this dress came in Australian sizes. I sized down like everyone suggested and a medium was not adequate for my chest (36D). Sadly all larger sizes are sold out. I will begrudgingly be returning this dress. But if LULU's ever gets it in stock again I will buy it in a bigger size in a heartbeat. It's even more beautiful in person.
I absolutely LOVE this dress. At first because of how short and small I am, I usually have a very hard time finding a dress that won't eat me up >.
This was one of three dresses I purchased for a wedding. I didn't think it would fit bc I have a large chest. It fit perfect up top but in only 5'1 so it was too long. Sadly I had to return it because I chose another dress.
I've been waiting forever for this dress to come back in stock and I am soooo glad I purchased it the moment it came back. It is absolutely gorgeous! Super elegant and makes you look really slim and tall with long legs. I usually wear M, but having read the older reviews, I got a size S. I'm 34D and 125lb and it fits perfectly! It's a bit way too long for me, but nothing a little tailoring can't fix. Love love love!
I am so in love with this dress and the way it fits. I tried it on for my boyfriend and his jaw dropped .Such a beautiful and well made dress, accentuates my bust and small waist . I cannot wait to wear it although I have to get it hemmed alittle because its rather long even with heels but i'm only 5'1 so if you are taller it should be fine. The split could be alittle higher but again i'm short so it would look more natural on someone taller, I'm definitely gonna get it altered so I don't have to make an effort to show some leg. Elegant, sexy and comfortable , perfect for the wedding I'm attending. Definitely recommend this gorgeous dress.
The dress fitted me perfectly! It is so gorgeous, even more gorgeous on, am stoked with the way it looked and mum loves it also. I am so excited to wear it to my ball, couldn't of found a better dress. I had read the reviews and was kinda half half about the sizing but I ordered the perfect size and it literally fits me exact, like it was made for me. I am so happy with the outcome and I would definitely recommend this dress, its gorgeous :') xx
This dress is the most beautiful dress I've ever bought. Honestly, I was truly nervous about buying it at first because of the mixed reviews, but it was worth the risk. For anyone who wants to buy this dress you should definitely purchase a size smaller than your true size, because it does run a little big since this is based of Australian measurements. But, anyway I cannot tell you enough how stunning this dress is. I felt like a princess on my prom night. This is the type of dress any girl would feel beautiful in. I've never been happier with a purchase, and I hope everyone else who has bought this dress feels the same. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS DRESS! :)
this dress is BEAUTIFUL. I wore it to prom and the compliments were non-stop. It runs pretty true to size. This dress is so flattering-great for the chest. Only complaint: it was a little long on me. I should have gotten it hemmed, and it doesn't help that I'm barely 5'1. This dress is so so so perfect and cannot recommend it enough.
I ordered this dress a size bigger (xs) than my normal size because it was the only dress available and I knew I had to get it as soon as i could since I waited for this dress for 2.5 months. I checked the site multiple times a day for these 2.5 months and as soon as I ordered it, it came within a week and I fell even more in love with the dress! The dress is even more gorgeous in person, it was wonderfully made. I'm hoping I'll be able to exchange for an xxs for my prom, but if not, i'll just get it altered. I think that it fits pretty true to size, it was only a little bit big on the waist and super long but I did order a size bigger. This dress is gorgeous and definitely worth the money :)
I was really nervous after reading the reviews about the sizing, but fortunately I got the right size. I'm usually a size 2 or 4 so I went with the xxs. The xxs is a size 6 in Australia and a size 2 in US measurements. The only problem is that am a D cup and its a little tight around the bust, but its not that bad. It's really lightweight and good quality material. And keep an eye out for when it comes back in stock. I waited 2 months for it to come back in stock and fortunately bought it quickly enough because it sold out within hours. I'm so happy that I got this dress, it is DEFINITELY worth it, especially for it's price.
First of all, as far as sizing, I would measure primarily based on your waist/ribcage. The dress is really, really fitted in to your waist...a little tighter than expected, although it still fit wonderfully. There was a part of the outer layer on the back that wasn't sewn or pressed quite flat, but other than that the only issue I had is length...I am 5'3.5", and even with 4" heels I needed to hem about 3" from the dress. Professionally, for a double layer chiffon dress, that can cost $80 or upward so you may want to consider that in your costs if you are not 5'10" like the model. Other than that, I love it! The material is gorgeous, fit is perfect (and supportive, even for my DDs) and I wish I could wear it every day because I feel incredible when I wear it.
After reading some of the reviews about the sizing, I was a little nervous about this dress but it was so pretty I had to take the risk...and I am so happy I did! I am 5'7" and weigh about 123 lbs. I usually wear a 34 B, so going by the measurements was a little tricky. I decided my best bet was to just go for the XS. This dress literally fits me perfectly, I get excited just thinking about it! It is a little too long on the bottom, even with heels it'll be long, but I can get that fixed pretty easily. I am wearing it to a Marine Corps dinner in Vegas in a few weeks and I can't wait!!!! :)
I fell in love with this dress after searching for a week online with no luck. Wore it to an upscale Christmas party and was definitely the talk of the party! Soo many compliments from both male and females about how elegant and classy I looked, and that my dress was the best of the night (out of 800 people!) It was a bit big in the waist area.
I've waited months for this dress to come in and it's finally arrived! I got a small because it was the last size available, I should have gotten an xsmall by looking at these wonderful reviews but this one is fine. I need to get it altered on the top sleeves and hemmed at the bottom! I'm 5'5" and around 125lbs, size 34B. I was wearing 6" pumps and was still tripping over the dress! I'm wearing it for prom and am so excited! It is also very well made, there's padding in the cups (very low cut!), and the zipper is well concealed. So glad I waited for this dress:)
I'm 5'5" / 130lbs
This dress is amazing!!! I had to go up a size because I am busty and it fit there but is to big in the waist and arm straps, but its nothing an good alteration can't fix.
I ordered this dress in an XS, following the measurements. I usually wear a size 00. I opened the package, at it said "Size 8" on the plastic it was wrapped in. It was SOOOO big, I could hardly keep it on. Beautiful dress, but WAY to big to even alter. Oh well :/
RESPONSE FROM LULUS.COM: We're sorry to hear this didn't fit! Bariano is an Italian brand so the tags on their clothing will be in Italian sizing, which is why your XS said Size 8! We want you to be 100% happy with every LuLu*s purchase, so please contact us if you aren't happy with an item and we will do our best to help (http://www.lulus.com/customer-service.html).

NOT FOR BUSTY GIRLS! I'm a 36D and the cleavage created by the dress was almost vulgar. I ordered it to wear for an anniversary celebration with my boyfriend, but ended up having to return it. In the picture, the cups look as though they would provide full coverage, but when I tried the dress on I was about 1/4 inch away from a wardrobe malfunction. That being said, the dress itself is beautiful! The material is gorgeously flowy and the skirt is so elegant. The **** is the perfect length to be sexy but still classy. The skirt itself was about 8 inches too long, even with heels (I'm 5' 3"), but that's nothing hemming can't fix! The waist was a bit snug, but once I got myself situated the snugness helped create a more flattering silhouette. Had the top been less revealing, this dress would have been one of my favorites!
Ordered a medium based on the size chart and usually wear about a sz 4 and it's a size or two too big. Also a little long even with 4 inch heels on and I'm 5' 10''. I absolutely love it though and will be getting it taken up.
I had just received this dress yesterday for my prom in May. I was extremely discouraged when it came wrapped like a blanket would. I unraveled it and it was beyond wrinkled.. I wanted to cry! I tried it on and it is beautiful. The top was a little big for my small chest but I will just get it altered. It is a beautiful god dreaming dress, but the wrinkles make it look like I just pulled it out from under my bed. :(
I ordered this dress and it was absolutely stunning! I ordered an XS and it fit well, maybe a tad to tight in the bodice, but it was alright snug. The straps were a little long, and the dress was too. I am 5'5'', and for the dress to just sweep the ground, i would have to wear at the very least a 4 1/2- 5 inch heel... which i didn't want to do haha. I could easily get this altered, but the neckline is a little to deep and risky for the event i was planning on wearing it too(a military ball), so i am planning to return :( I wish i could keep it, because its simply gorgeous, but I am on a budget :(
I purchased my xs size based on the description where it says the model was also wearing an xs. As gorgeous as this dress is, it runs really big! I'm so disappointment because I purchased it off of lulus months ago and not sure if it's too late to switch to an xxs. Not happy at all and bad description this time around.
