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.
Absolutely beautiful. Great material
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!
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 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 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.
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). We really appreciate the feedback that you've shared!
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 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.
