This dress is really beautiful. It's a bit short for my height (1.75 m or 5'9'). I wear size M and ordered it as well. It fitted!
The color is beatiful! It a light lavender, and I am 5'8 and am very picky about my maxi dresses being long, and it is!! I could even wear some low wedges! The material is very light and flowy. This is the first time I've ordered from Lulu ' s and I will come back for me! Great company!
I felt like a queen when I first put this dress on! It's long and very well made... It's stretchy so sizing will not be much of an issue for anyone. I would only give it a 4.5/5 because the straps will fall off if you bend over or make certain moves but it can get a 5/5 because I got so many compliments at my baby shower! If you have small *****... You may have an even more difficult time keeping the straps in place but I would buy this again in another color!
I ordered this as a bridesmaid dress for an upcoming wedding. I'm 5'3"/125 lbs, and After reading the reviews I determined I needed an extra-small, but that size was sold out! I took a chance and ordered a small and it still looks great on. I will definitely need to alter the straps, but that isn't a big deal at all. Beautiful dress for the price!
I'm 5'2", 110 lbs, and I got the XS which is perfect. The dress is beautiful on, and the length is pretty suitable for my height as well. I got this to wear as a guest to a wedding and this is perfect for that. What I didn't like was that the skirt portion came extremely wrinkled. I'm not sure if that's how it's supposed to look, but the picture doesn't make it look that way. I'll have to figure out some way to de-wrinkle this because you can't really iron the material without melting it... Sigh.

A friend of mine had this dress in white and I just HAD to order it when I saw it on her. I ordered the lavender (even though I never wear pastels) and I am so glad that I did. I am 5'7 and weight about 130 and have a curvy/athletic frame and the small fit me great. The one think I would change is the straps. They do tend to slip, as most of the reviews say. I would have had them "cross" in the back for more support, but besides that, this is an awesome dress!
so i ordered this dress to wear to a wedding, i put it on after looked in the mirror for about ten minutes and decided it wouldnt work. im very slim everything fit my my breasts are 32ddd so everytime i would put my arm down to do something they would come out. im not sure if i needed a smaller size, the size i ordered was a small, i guess i needed an xs? im not sure but it was beautiful and extremely long. i had to return it because of the 2 problems i was having. i couldnt wear it to the wedding =/
I'm 5'5 and a size ten, ordered a size small and it was perfect ! This dress would suit any shape or size, its so complimentary and beautiful. Using it for my debs and its a dress which could easily be dressed up or down. Straps are loose and it arrived creased but both these issues are easily fixed. The price is amazing, can't believe I got a dress like this for a price like that and it came in a week !! Love it
Dress is a gorgeous colour, looks even nicer in person. It is very heavy though, but it helps keep the top portion snug against my body. I am 5'0" and about 100 lbs, with a bra size of 32B, got a XS and it fits very well. I may need to hem about 2 or 3 inches off the bottom so that it works with my height though. A downside to the dress though, is of course, the straps. It hooks on to the shoulders nice, but once I bend over or slouch, the straps slip right off. I may either fashion tape the sides to the body, or re-adjust the straps so that they cross the backside and provide more support and comfort. There was a little fraying on the edges that bothered me when it came in the mail. The waist was fraying in stringy strips. It's a little bothersome because I cannot get that fixed without possibly tearing the entire dress apart. But overall, this is a gorgeous looking dress, flows great, and is very flattering!
love love love this dress. I'm a photographer in Tacoma, WA and was traveling to Hawaii to photograph a destination wedding. While there, I hired a different photographer to capture an anniversary session of me and my husband. I went to buy this dress the first time and it was sold out. 5 days before we left I was browsing the site and thank the lord - there was 1 left so I snatched it up! The dress couldn't have been more perfect for our photo session on the beach. I'm 5'9 and hate when long dresses hit at my ankles, but this dress definitely sweeps the floor - mind you I can't wear 4" heels in it, but some pretty flats or a kitten heel I can get away with. The straps are just a smidge too loose for me, but I think it's an easy fix. I ruined the dress a bit in HI (I jumped into a water-fall with it during the photos), but it was absolutely worth it. I may be buying myself a 2nd one when they come back in stock.
Love this dress! I'm 5'3 and usually get a size 4 in dresses so I decided to get an XS from the other reviews I read, and it's perfect!! I'll just have to trim the bottom because it's a bit too long but other than that it's beautiful! The color is a pastel violet and the texture is soft and comfortable. The only downside of this dress, however are the straps. They tend to get annoying and easily fall down exposing your whole chest! Other than that it's great!
I really love this dress. The straps are a bit on the flimsy side. They stay up okay, but they're skinny
I ordered this dress for my prom because the model looks absolutely stunning in it and it's unique. That's exactly how the dress looks when you receive it. The straps are fine just a little loose, but do not fall down unless you're moving your arms a alot. The length is floor length and has a slight train on me because I am 5 feet 4 inches tall. I would not hesitate to buy this dress at all. The color is exact to the picture and so is the fit. I ordered a size small considering all the other reviews said it runs large and it was perfect. Lastly, the fabric is incredibly soft and thick so you don't have to worry about transparency or wearing certain undergarments. Love this dress!
This dress is absolutely gorgeous. If you're looking for a simple yet elegant, this is the perfect dress for you! I'm 5'1 and is under 110 lbs so it did run a big large, but you literally just need to get it altered and it will be the perfect fit! It's cheaper to alter too because of its simplicity in material. Overall, I don't regret buying this dress although it came a little too wrinkled. I'm wearing it to my senior prom :)
I'm 5'2, 130 lbs and usually a S/M, I ordered the S thinking it might be slightly too tight however it did run a bit big especially in the top half as the straps slide off pretty easily, so I would definitely recommend sizing down; the dress is so beautiful nonetheless!! It is a bit long as expected from my height however this can be altered. The colour is so pretty and the fabric is very soft and flowy. Despite all the alterations, the dress is enchanting and I love it, don't hesitate to buy it!
I love this dress. The color is so pretty and it is extremely soft! It runs a little big so I wish I would have gotten a size extra small. I ordered a size small, I actually thought it would be too small, however it is a little too big. I am going to try to get it altered. It is simply amazing!!! Seriously one of my favorite dresses!
I ordered this dress to Europe on prupose to wear it to an upcoming wedding. I'm 1.64m (5'4), 52kg (114lbs) and wear 75B. It's the first maxi dress that I ordered and luckily it's just the right lenght to wear with heels! The fabric feels soft (cotton), for me it was just too wrinkled when I arrived it so I had to iron it. After that it looked really nice. What I didn't like was the underskirt (polyester)- so I'm thinking of cutting it just to the lenght over the knees (without it would be too see-through). The color it true to the picture. I had the same issue with the straps as others - but if you stand up straight it works, and I think it's the price for the nice design. :) You will have to tape the top to your (backless) bra or body in order to no loose it while moving around (sitting, leaning forward...). I'm looking forward to wear it and would recommend it to everyone.
Normally I am a size L, but I ordered the dress in a M after reading reviews. Even then, it ran a little large on me, but it was beautiful! Had to steam it quite a bit when I first received the dress as it was extremely wrinkled (I'm not one for that particular boho look). I had to get the dress hemmed, and the straps just would not stay on so we altered those as well. After a few alterations, the dress was perfect. I feel like a greek goddess in it, and the lavender is beautiful! It sure took a lot of work to get there though.
Beautiful dress. I'm 5'5 130 lbs and the small did fit fine. But if you have hips, it does make them look much bigger because of the heavy material at the bottom part of the dress. Had to return it :(
I have a long torso so unfortunately this did not work for me at all. The bodice just sat too high and made the dress look awkward on me. If you have a normal length torso I would definitely try this dress. Another complaint is that when I opened this dress the skirt was very very wrinkled and I would have needed to steam or iron it out before wearing. The bottom of the dress has a hem and below the hem it is left unfinished which is a little annoying, but it is supposed to be for a more boho feel. Also I do not understand how the straps are supposed to stay up without some body tape or something. The color is as pictured and it is over all a beautiful dress, and I wish it would have worked on me.
In loveee with this dress!!!! The material is very good which i was not expecting it. The color is beautiful and it fits well. However, it is very long!!! Im 5'5 and i weight 118. I ordered xs snd it fits well but is very very long!!! The backless part is the most beautiful/sexy part of it. My fav dress so far :)
When I saw this dress I fell in love! But.....after receiving it I was so disappointed. I am 5'3" and 108 lbs so I ordered the small. There is No way to adjust the straps, and it is cut in so far on the sides that if you move everything shows or falls out!! The only thing holding it up is 2 thin straps and your bust. Completely backless and no way to wear support :) Dress was Re-Turned.
Not, majorly pear shaped. Just bigger on the bottom than on the top. I feel like the dress will look absolutely gorgeous on anyone. The only thing bad about it is how the straps will fall if you're trying to get down at a dance, all you need is some ribbon or clear elastic and it will be fine. I would recommend this dress to anyone. Im 5'7 and 150 lbs wear a size M/L, I'm planning on wearing it to my prom. Thank you Lulu's!
This dress is too cute, it isn't too fancy a material and I will probably wear it to prom. my only complaints are that the bottom of the dress isn't sowed completely solidly and so it frays a bit, and the straps fall off if you don't keep your shoulders back. I don't think I can wear it to the actual dance unfortunately, the top would fall off. I got an xs (I'm 5'4" and 110 lbs) and even that was slightly big. it's long, but for me it's just the right length with heels. also it makes me feel like I should frolic in a forest.
Very pretty dress, just runs big.
I am 5'6", 120 lbs, 32DD. I ordered the small. it fits nicely. will drag a little with flats, but the hem is frayed and the dress has that "undone" feeling to it anyway, so that doesn't matter to me. I will be wearing it with heels to a wedding. It's a little scary because the straps are so delicate and it is completely backless, but it does look good on. As long as the straps hold up, I am a happy customer! Don't hesitate to order this!
great dress !!! RUNS BIG! I'm usually a size small and REALLY doesn't fit.
This dress comes and looks just how the model wears it. I would suggest going down one size if you are truly interested. I'm 5'8", 140lbs and usually wear M. After reading all the reviews, I went with a S and it fit just fine. The reason I didn't give this dress 5 stars is because the straps that hold the dress up tend to fall off my shoulders. I would suggest **** tape to hold up the bodice part of the dress so if the straps fall off, your ******* aren't out in the open. Also, I was really annoyed with the fact that the bottom of the dress was really "stringy". There were a lot of loose threads that just kept get caught everywhere and coming off. And the fact that the dress comes all bunched and wrinkled up, it was a pain in the butt to steam, but understandable. Overall, this makes a good dress if you are willing to put in the effort to steam the dress, hem the bottom, and tape up the top part so it doesn't fall off.
I fell in love with this dress when I saw it online. When I got the dress, the color was more grey than lavender and it came wrinkled. The material is nice and flowy. I am 5'2 and 115 lbs and ordered an XS. The straps were extremely uncomfortable. I felt like i would not be able to lift my arms up without everything being exposed so i decided to return the dress.
I just got this dress a couple of days ago. Opened it up and looked fine. Then I tried it on. I was very scared because the reviews I read all said it runs large. Oh my goodness were they right. It looked very awkward and I'm the same size as the model. I'm returning this dress as fast as I can because you only have 7 days after postmarked date.
This dress is everything I wanted for a beach wedding guest. The material is comfortable and the detailing on the bust is nice for visual interest. That being said the top was just way to small for my bust while the waist was far too large. Sizing up did not help as the bust is only nominally bigger. If you are smaller on top or less curvy this is an amazing dress.
This dress is beautiful but it shows alot of skin in the back and there is major side ****. For me it just wouldn't be comfortable to dance in because you feel like you'll fall out at any minute. Overall its a beautiful dress but its loose fitting.
This is a cute dress but was way too short for me. I base my order on the model's measurements and the length of the dress in the photo but when I tried this on it did not eveb come close to floor length (I am 5' 10"). Nice flowy fabric, wish it was longer.
