After reading reviews, I decided to size down and get a S instead of my usual M. Dress fits perfect on the top but is far too long (I am only 5'4). Sexy and perfect for a summer holiday dinner date.
I'm so in love with this dress. Its exactly what I wanted at a great price. I'm planning on wearing this to a wine festival. I feel pretty in this dress and I love the color.
I'm 5'1 and weight 127. The dress is a perfect length.
Used this dress in green/blue for a beach wedding in Cancun. I actually had string attached to the back (like some of the other styles on this website) by my local taylor, which kept my bust in place. I can't tell you how many compliments I got! Such a unique dress and sooo romantic. You will definitely agree. The model in the picture doesn't do this dress justice!! My advice: Just buy it!!!
5'2'', 130 lbs, 34B, 27" waist, 38" hips -- I ordered a small. Even with heels, this dress will require some hemming for me. Take care with the straps and the top. I didn't notice in the pictures, but now I see that it's held up only just around each shoulder, like if you were wearing a drawstring backpack in front of you on your chest. The straps are a little flimsy, but I don't find them bad enough to complain about, unless you are very busty.. in that case you'll definitely need more support somehow! I don't know if it's because of how it was wrapped, but it arrived incredibly wrinkled, but almost so much that it seems like it was meant to be that way... and I don't know if ironing it out will fix this, but it did add some inches on my hips --ordinarily a nice thing, but in this case, was a bit of a downer since I wanted to feel long and lean in this dress. Still SO gorgeous though and the gorgeous mint color is as pictured. Afraid to wear it to a wedding and upstage the bride =)
I was looking at the measurements from LuLu's and I initially ordered sized M but good thing I skimmed through the reviews. Last minute I changed it to size small. Perfect fit! I'm 5'4, 125 lbs, 34C bust.
I LOVE THIS DRESS! It's really long, but I'm tall so I really like that. It shipped so fast! I originally ordered a medium because of length, but it was huge so I returned it. Their return/exchange is a super easy, painless process too.
The dress feels way better than I expected. It's really soft and the fabric has weight to it. I'm 5'6", 130 lbs, 32DD and I got a small. The fit was funny and too low, so I tied little knots in the straps to shorten them ~an inch. Now it's tight enough that I don't need to wear a bra or worry about slippage. There is still some cleavage (as always, for me). If I weren't so in love with the fabric/design of the dress the excessive length would be a deal breaker. The hem still lightly sweeps the ground with 2' heels.
I'm 5' 10" and a 34D (usually a size 4/27 in bottoms and a size 6 in dresses) and a medium fit perfect on me! It's the right length and coverage and everything. After reading some of the reviews I originally ordered a small but it barely covered me on top and Lulu's was super helpful and helped me exchange it for a medium! The medium looks like it as tailored to me. If you're bigger on top, definitely buy the size you normally would! I can't wait to wear this dress this summer with a crocheted vest I have!
I'm 5.2-5.3 and weight 130 bras size 32D with a small waist and I biggish bum and thighs and the small fit me perfect! I love the dress it's awesome and yes the straps are a little of a hassle but I don't find them too long just how they hold is odd but acceptable.
The dress is gorgeous. Fits beautifully, can't wait to wear it out!! 😀
I loves the dress!! It fits perfectly I'm about 5"1/5"2 and I ordered an XS and the fabric is beautiful. I think this is the prettiest dress I have ever had!! Love it :)
I'm 5'8", curvy and with small breast. I had a hard time deciding if I should get a small or a medium and I went for the medium size. I think I did the right choice it fits perfectly, the straps are very loose so prepare yourself to be straight. I really like the colour and the material. I recommend to get it!! The shipping was fast and without problems. The costumer service is perfec. Thank you so much!
Im 5'5" but very little so I was worried it wouldn't fit me that great but this dress is amazing. The straps are a little long but I got them hemmed and it was perfect. Its great material and is so comfortable. Ive never gotten so many compliments before. Simply amazing!
So I am currently loosing weight and saw this and tried it on. Still too small, I ordered a medium and I'm 5'5, 155 pounds. But its perfect for my trip to Hawaii in a few months... wish me luck. I love this, and cannot wait to wear. A little more risky than I thought but still SUPER cute!
This dress is so comfortable and flowy and luxurious feeling, I can't even begin to describe how much I love it. As someone who has hips that do not lie and a small waist, it's hard to find maxi dresses that look good and don't make me look absurd, but this manages to look perfect! It's also the perfect length (I'm 5'4", and there is maybe half an inch I could hem) and the straps stay put (which was my fear). Beautiful summer dress!
I loved this dress. My sister-in-law had ordered to wear for a wedding, and I fell in love. I really struggled with what size to order. According to the size chart, I needed a medium because of my waist measurement (I'm pretty straight with not a very defined waist). However, the dress is elastic through the waist, so if you are deciding between two sizes in that area, I would go with the smaller. The small fit perfectly. I am about 5'8 and a 125 lbs.
Very flowing dress. Received lots of compliments when wearing to a wedding. However the lining at the bottom of the dress wasn't done very well so make sure you fixed it up before wearing. Otherwise, highly recommended!
I had a hard time deciding what size to get. I am 7 months pregnant and I'm 5'7". I generally wear a small/medium and since this is really only tight in the chest area I figured my belly would just stick out more and it would be fine, I went with the medium and it fits perfect. I though it would be too long but it is the perfect length. The straps needs to be tightened just a little but I am happy that I went with the medium.. It is so girly and pretty I can't wait to wear it to my baby shower.
I wore this dress to a wedding last weekend and received tons of compliments on it. It looks fabulous, but it took a lot of work to get it that way. (For reference, I am 5'5", 120 lb, with 34C bust and I ordered an XS). First, the dressed arrived incredibly wrinkled, and there's a lot more fabric to it than you realize so ironing took forever. Second, I had to have it hemmed over three inches to be able to wear it (I wore it without heels). The biggest problem, however, is the top. The straps definitely had to be shortened for it to not fall off me. In addition, I had to use fashion tape around all the sides to secure it, not to mention you still have to be sure you keep really good posture while wearing it or it will not lay correctly. However, it turned out great and I was very pleased with the end result. Like I said before, you will get A LOT of compliments :) Just be sure not to buy this dress if you need to wear it in a hurry because it will take time to alter!
First off, for the price it's good. I definitely had to take sewing scissors and clean up the hem and mid section detail of all the stray strings. It only took me about 5 or so minutes and looked decent. I also need to iron it out because the dress had a crinkly look to it (unlike the sleek look of the picture) because I would rather not have other guests think I am wearing a wrinkled dress. That all being said, I would rather pay the price I did for the minor grooming that needs to be done since I will likely wear it twice at the max as it is a very beautiful and impressionable dress. I am almost 5'10, about 144 lbs and it brushes the floor in a size medium. I feel the medium was a perfect choice as well. I am for sure getting a strapless front stick bra with double sided tape to make sure I don't have any wardrobe malfunctions!
I'm really small: 5'1''/5'2''
Was debating about this for a while, SO glad I got it. One of a kind dress that is simply stunning. Super soft, comfy material, and effortless to wear with heels or flats, plus just a bit of fashion tape to keep the girls in place. I tend to mostly go with mediums for dresses, occasionally a large to fit my hips/butt if it's a tight/bodycon dress. Ordered a large based off measurements, but it proved to be way to large with excess material on bottom and loose on top. Medium fit perfectly for me, 5'5" 160lbs. I am so excited to wear this gem!
I usually wear Small-Medium. I went with medium and this was still pretty snug on my chest, which is a larger part of my body, but I was still surprised. I guess the crochet top does not give as much as other materials. Also, straps fall off easily when you bend over so stand straight and don't plan to do much in this dress! I'm 5'6" and needed to get it hemmed. Overall, I like the dress though.
This dress is absolute perfection!!! I bought it for an outdoor wedding in June and can't wait to see my bf's mouth drop open. I love the way it hangs on my body and the back is unexpectedly sexy. I'm 5'3
I weigh 135lb and I am 5`5. I ordered the medium and it does fit a bit big, but if you have a big chest like me, it kind of fills it out and makes up for the rest of the dress being a bit big. I don`t mind though because it is such a gorgeous dress! The bottom is very frayed though and strings fall off in my closet which is annoying if I accidentally walk on the bottom of the dress. Overall good purchase though.
I ordered this dress to wear to a destination wedding. When I received it and tried it on I was disappointed. It's very pretty but I feel not worth the money as you need to get alterations done on it to be more comfortable wearing it. All the reviews that indicate the straps are flimsy and the bottom skirt is heavy are very accurate! I am going to see if I can get it altered and have better straps put on as well as have the inner lining shortened to above my knee so it's not so heavy. Hopefully with these changes it'll be the dress I'll love to want to wear!
Got a lot of compliments on dress and felt great wearing it! I did have some cups sewed in since had to go without a bra and felt a lot more comfortable. I'm 5'4 135 lbs. I had ordered the dress in 2 colors and first one I tried on the elastic snapped instantly, so I returned it and the process went really smooth. The 2ND one I got thru pictures before wedding and elastic snapped...I should've had some stitches sewn in or elastic replaced as a just in case....luckily we had a lot of safety pins handy to finish out the night....just disappointed in quality of elastic...i was literally just standing both times it broke.
Just got this in the mail and love it! The color is a very nice mint green, very true to the picture in my opinion. Other comments mention issues with the straps being too long, but I thought they fit fine...I'm also 5'10. I ordered the x-small because I'm pretty slender and not big chested, and the dress fits great but I wish it were just a bit longer. It just barely touches the ground when I'm standing flat footed, so I can probably get away with a small heel without it looking too short. Other than that, I really like the dress and am excited to wear it! Comments about the dress feeling "heavy" are true, not a bad thing at all in my opinion though. It feels like a good quality dress.
The dress is beautiful but the straps drove me nuts. I think it needed different straps because these ones fall all the time and you are in high risk of having your ***** shown lol but luckily I was able to put something holding the straps together. Also it's very very long if your shorter than 5'9 you will have to take it somewhere to be shortened. Overall the dress is great quality but definitely needs work to get it to fit you nicely.
I was so excited to get this dress it looks amazing online. However after trying it on I HATE the straps. They are thin and do not stay in place well. I'm actually kind of sad about returning it, I keep trying to convince myself to keep it and deal with it. I think if the straps were a bit thicker it wouldn't be bad.
I really really really wanted to love this dress, but it made me look awful. It gave me about 3 inches extra on each side of my hips. I'm small, 5'3 110lbs and it was not flattering at all. The side material did not lay straight down like it does in the picture. Already in the mail to be returned.
This is a fairytale dress. Prettiest dress I've ever owned. Also the first open-back I've owned and it sits just right. The straps are awkward and feel like they can come right down if I lean forward- might fasten a piece of clear elastic between them since my hair would cover it. Just gorgeous. I'm 5'5 125 34C ordered the small, very roomy and the elastic is stretchy.
I love the style and colour, but the dress looks better in the pictures. The seams are not finished nicely, so the style is more prairie and hippie, not as elegant as it appeared. As well it is a very heavy dress, in regards to the fabric, so it will be very warm. There is absolutely no support in the top and falls off very easily, no room for any chest to fit into. As well the elastic top to the base it very elastic so it doesn't give much protection for your lower back. I will need to do many alterations to make this dress wedding appropriate, but it only cost me $26 so I get what I paid for.
I am 5'3'' and 100lbs. I purchased an extra small and it was a little big on me. However, I decided to return the dress anyway because it was a bit risque. I am a 32B bra size and find it rare to look inappropriate in dresses, simply because of my body type. I bought this dress for a wedding and decided it was much too revealing. The length would have been okay (with heels) had I decided to keep the dress. This dress requires a great deal of confidence to wear. I also think if I were to wear it, I would need to get it altered to include a lining on the top to avoid seeing everything God gave me, if you know what I mean.
This dress was too big and weird fit. Ugh I was so excited for it to come in the mail cuz I wanted it for a wedding that's in a week.
LOVE. THIS. DRESS!!! Wore it today as a bridesmaid for a casual beach wedding and got too many compliments to count! This color looks amazing on and it is beyond flattering. I had the get the straps altered a lot but it was totally worth it! My favorite dress I've ever purchased and it's actually one that can be used for so many different occasions not just one!
I saw this dress and really loved it so i ordered a size medium. I am 5'6" and 150 pounds. I have a thin stomach but i have hips and a butt. This dress accentuated my curves so badly i felt enormous. This fabric was also very thick and heavy which may have added to it. I wanted to love it because the back was so sexy, but i am not a big girl so I did not want my hips to pop more than they already do. The dress was also incredibly wrinkled out of the package and it may have helped if i ironed it but i was already discouraged. I ended up returning it. The good part was that the color was gorgeous though and true to the picture. I would recommend this dress to girls with less of a curvy figure!
This dress is really pretty but the design of the top is terrible. The straps just loop around each shoulder, so they do almost nothing to actually hold the top on. I love the look and color of the dress though, and plan to wear it for engagement photos, so I am spending $30 to have extra straps added that will cross in the back. I am surprised that other reviewers have such positive reviews since I honestly can't understand how you'd wear it around without having it altered. As soon as I leaned over, the top just slid off! Basically, it looks beautiful but is completely impractical unless you are willing to spend the money to have it altered.
I knew I was taking a risk buying a maxi dress as I am 5'2 and about 120 lbs, 34b cup. It would have been easy to hem at the bottom, but unfortunately the bust area did not fit at all. I have a short torso and it just did not sit right on me without risk of the straps falling and exposing everything! It's a gorgeous dress, just better meant for the tall ladies out there!
This dress is gorgeous, but the straps are a mess. If I bend over at all, the dress falls off of me and exposes everything. So, I tape it to my chest using double sided body tape, but the straps still slide off if I'm not sitting or standing straight as a board. I'm a 34D and the small fits well in the chest, but is somewhat loose in the waist. I would imagine women with smaller chests would find this dress pretty large in the top. Also, it's very stringy. Has tins of little strings all over it.
Beautiful dress- very ethereal and feminine! I absolutely love the color and the fact that it's backless. The one thing I would note is that there is a lot of fabric on the bottom (it's not very lightweight) and it has a slight widening effect at the hips (at least, it did on me). However I didn't find it to be a problem and I love the way I look in it! I am 5' 4" and the dress is pretty long but works with wedges.
I'm 5'7, 125 lbs, 32b
I fell in love with this dress before I even pulled it out of the packaging. The color is gorgeous on my skin and even looks good with my reddish blonde hair. It wasn't too lose in my bust seeing as how I have NO boobs and I ordered a Small. I am 5'7" and it still hung on the floor a little bit which I wanted. I just need to tighten up the straps a little bit but that is not a problem at all. I cannot wait to wear this for my soldier.
I'm preggo and bought this dress for my baby shower next month, and got it in a small (thank gosh i still fit it). The elastic band that goes around the waist is very stretchy for a small, except the crochet area for the chest is a bit small for me. (i could prob fit a med) But yes the arm straps are very awkward and could slide right off! lucky i have mint yarn that i looped between the armstraps and my back and criss crossed them and tied it in the front of my waist. The yarn string could be hidden inside the dress. Fixes the issue of the sliding straps and adds a great touch of style to the dress! Looks great! Try it out!
this dress was just awful. i am normally a solid medium in dresses- by bottom half is large but my waist is a medium and i am a 36B. Firstly I received the dress in shambles, there were strings coming off it in every direction, the hem was falling apart and I was afraid it was going to fall apart if I even put it on. However I tried it on and the dress is so heavy that the back was falling way down, not to mention that it was so large I could've taken off almost 5 inches of material off the waist area. Needless to say- I promptly returned the dress.
Lovely color, beachy, soft dress. I am 5' 8" with a small waist but fuller hips and legs, 34C bra size and the medium fit very well. If you are any shorter than 5' 8", you will need a shoe with a heel or to have the dress hemmed as it is a bit long. My only minor complaint is that the hem of the dress was frayed with many loose strings upon arrival. I snipped them off, but am worried about the hem further unraveling when I wash the dress. Prepare to iron the dress too, as it will arrive VERY wrinkled! All in all this is a wonderful summer maxi dress; I definitely recommend it :)
I love this dress and it fits perfect! When ordering this dress I was a little worried about the straps but they don't even slip. I am 5'9 - 145lbs and I ordered a medium. I love the color and it is very comfortable. Thank you LuLu's, I will be ordering from this site again!
I wanted to love this dress, but at 5'6" with a 34A bra it just did not fit right at all. The front crochet is a little scrap of material barely covering anything. The color is much lighter than what appears in this picture. Back it goes...
This dress was truly amazing. I usually don't write reviews but I thought this dress deserved one. It is better in person than in the picture (and it's beautiful in the pictures) Although it is very wrinkly I love the overall feel of it. Also, my dress arrived in four days! That was a bonus. I am exactly 5'0 and I will get it hemmed but it was worth its price!
I just got this dress for my spring formal.. I love it, yes I would recommend sizing down because i even ordered the extra small and the chest is a bit big but with some fashion tape I think it will work. Also to help with sizing I'm 5ft 2 and 34a and more curvy at the bottom.. Its very flowy so you don't have to work about it fitting below the waist it is just the top that runs large. I think the dress is very elegant and chic with just a little a bit of sexiness with the exposed back.
I just got my dress in yesterday and its absolutely beautiful. The color is is more of a pale sea foam vs. the light blue in the picture, but I think I like my version better. What I really love is the quality. The entire dress is completely lined so you don't have to worry about people seeing through it. I'm also in love with the length I'm 5'9" and 150 lb, and this dress almost hits the floor when I walk. I can wear sandals or dress it up with heels. If you're shorter than 5'7"-5'8" you'll definitely have to hem it, but its worth it. Lastly, this dress is naturally wrinkly which makes it great for traveling. My only complaint is the straps. They are very thin and flimsy and cause the top to slip off. I'll have to sew on new ones.
This dress is absolutely stunning and I'm so disappointed it doesn't fit! I was going to wear it as my reception dress for my wedding. I'm 104 pounds, 5'3, 26 inch waist, and wear a 32C size bra. This dress was bought in size XS and it looks like an extra large on me. It was so long that even in heels I was tripping over it. Also, the way the top is designed, I just don't see how it can be altered to be tighter. It was so loose, the straps kept falling down and they only stayed put when I pushed my chest out as far as I could. Also the waist was very loose and you could see my butt crack. I think this is designed for long body types and larger chests. I just got the dress in the mail today and sadly have to return it tomorrow.
Its really preety but the color is more lighter than in the picture, and its meant for skinny girls. I have a belly since I just gave birth so It made me look like I was still pregnant, especially since the dress has layer so definitely returning other than that I would of kept it
I won a gift card from a Lulu's styling contest and I held out on spending it until the spring summer wardrobe came out (b/c I absolutely love summer clothing
When I first got this dress I was expecting a sea foam blue like the pictured showed but the dress really is a light mint. Although the color was not what I expected, the dress is still beautiful. The dress is really well made and it was a little heavier than I expected it to be. The straps are really thin and a little long but that can easily be fixed. The bottom skirt part of the dress has more wrinkles than pictured so it almost looks like crumpled paper but I think it gives off a more vintage vibe. The skirt is also a little too long for me but I can easily fix that and the bottom is frayed but I think it's meant to add to the look. I bought this for my senior prom because I wanted something a little different yet simple and I'm so glad I chose this one!
I had been looking for a backless dress for summer for a while, and when I stumbled on this, I was on the fence about it. But on a whim I decided to order it anyways and I'm so glad that I did. It's beautiful! It fits me perfectly and I have gotten compliments on it every single time that I've worn it. For reference, I'm 5"4, 112 lbs, with a muscular build and pear shaped body, and this dress fit amazingly on my frame. I haven't had any issues with the straps like other reviews have mentioned. I will definitely be purchasing this dress in more colors for summer.
This dress looks amazing. The only thing is I wish the middle part in the front would go right in my waist. But it's comfortable perfect for summer. No I need somewhere to go and wear it! ;)
Absolutely no support with straps. They are constantly falling off of the shoulders.
I was disappointed. It looks better in the photo. Lots a little strings hanging. The color is beautiful. I've seen this dress for around $24 dollars in other places. I returned the dress. Not worth the $54. I wasn't disappointed enough to stop shopping at LuLus though but for this dress I'll just get a cheaper one.
I'm 5'7 130lbs and a 34 C. I bought a small which fit well! But the dress had strings all over it. It was like they didn't finish the dress or something. I think the dress would be gorgeous for a shoot but for everyday wear its really not comfortable. Like others have reviewed the straps are awkward and you have to stand/sit/move a certain way to keep them up.
This dress is absolutely gorgeous and the back is just amazing. I'm 5'6" and after reading the reviews I chose to order an XS as I have no bust whatsoever and it's pretty much perfect. The dress sweeps the floor and is a little longer at the back, but it is the perfect dress, especially if you don't want to look too dressy, the boho style is lovely. Would definitely recommend xx
I rated this dress not based on it's beauty b/c it is a stunner, it's absolutely gorgeous BUT it was outrageously way to big for me. I ordered an extra small too. I am 5'6", I weigh almost 110
The dress is beautiful! I have the white one as well that I bought from another retailer. I usually wear a small or a medium in dresses, but I had to order a large the straps are pretty tight and I have a large top and the straps do not stretch. The dress has a lining that makes my hips look even bigger, I plan on cutting it off. It might depend on your body type though. My white one does not have the lining and it fits better. I still love the dress and the color!
This dress is a beautiful greenish blue, less pale than pictured. I have a 34D bust and a 27" waist and the Medium is TOO BIG. I cannot stress this enough, this dress runs large. I am ~120 pounds and curvy and my friend stressed me to get a Medium, so I did. I recommend sizing down. The straps are way too long. The dress is too long, if I wear heels and stand up really straight then the top stays on and its the right length. I am going to get it altered or return it, i was thinking about getting a small. Either way. size down ladies!!
I really like the style and the color of the dress. The only downfalls where all the fraying that was going on under the crochet part and at the very end. I have to go to a tailor that can secure all the strings hanging down. Also the dress is a bit long and It's longer in the back than in the front!
I loved the way this dress fit! I was a bit weary when I saw the side of the dress because I was not sure if my backless bra's wings would be visible, but it was just fine. The dress was the perfect length for me and was just like the pictures. I hate when I get a dress and it looks nothing like what I thought I ordered. Very happy with this.
I bought this dress for prom and was so excited when i first tried it on because it was the perfect color and the perfect material. The only big issue was the straps. the top of the dress is very thin so whenever i didn't stand up completely straight the straps would fall making the top fall down as well! i am just noticing this and i have a week til prom and i don't know what to do about the straps! there is no way i could dance or even pick something up off the ground in this dress!
Great dress, and beautiful color. Extremely wrinkly, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. I have a 27" waist and by these measurements should have been a medium, but bought a small due to all the reviews saying it runs large. I probably could've gone an extra small, so if you're unsure about sizing, definitely go down!
This dress is just beautiful. The color is gorgeous and more of pale sea green than a mint color. I wish I would have ordered an extra small instead of a small because the straps are kind of long. I'm 5'2, 120 pounds and for the most part it fit fine. The dress was the perfect length, and with heels it will be flowing perfectly to the ground. I am a 34B and I still will need to find a backless bra to give me just a little bit more lift. Also, there was a lot of spare strings come out from the bottom that I had to cut off. Other than that and the size I love it and can't wait to wear it for my boyfriends graduation.
This dress is STUNNING. I absolutely love it BUT it is a huge pain to wear. If you're looking for a show-stopper for a short event, then great. But I would not recommend this dress for any sort of sit down or longer event (unless you have it tailored in advance). I bought this dress last minute for a movie premiere, and let me tell you - it has "wardrobe malfunction" written all over it. The reason why this lady has such perfect posture in the photo? Because if your shoulders aren't 100% back in position, your boobs are hanging out. The shoulder straps are too long and the only way this dress stayed on my top was because of a strip of top stick fabric tape running the entire length of the top. Even though I tried to keep back my shoulders in the car, I'm pretty sure a good number of people on the highway saw my boobs. Sitting down just doesn't work out too well. All of that being said - I got an insane amount of complements and I love the dress - just know that it is a JOB to wear it unless you have the time and money to tailor it in advance.
I''m 5''8, 155lbs and 36C(orded a size medium) this dress was alright but would be very hard to wear in public for a period of time, the straps are very awkward and hard to stay up unless you sit like a Barbie doll 24/7. I would recommend busty girls not to get this dress.
To start off I'm about 5'5 and a half and weigh about 160 pounds. From bust to hips, I'm 35-29-38 inches. The dress is exactly as it appears in the pictures, and like other reviews say, the dress is very wrinkly and there are a lot of loose strings but I like that as it gives off a very relaxed and bohemian vibe. The colour looks great and the dress is a bit heavy, which I like. It grazes the ground perfectly without heels and when I'm in heels, it is the perfect length. The only thing I dislike are the straps as I feel they don't stay or are secure enough on my shoulders. Overall, the dress is very pretty and I cannot wait to wear this to my prom!
I was intending to wear this to my prom however having received the dress I am not sure whether this will be possible. I had been really looking forward to it arriving but was disappointed as I found the hem unfinished and fraying as well as not being an even length all they way round. To make the dress wearable it will have to be altered which is disappointing as I really liked it on the website.
I am 5'8" and bought a small, when I received it I was kinda effy and didn't know whether I should return it or not. So fortunately a last minute invite to a wedding came up and this was the only dress in my closet I hadn't put on yet. So I took a chance and wore it! Best decision ever. It was so comfy and long and everyone said in looked like a princess all my friends family wanted to know where I got it and it went perfectly with the wedding. Not to flashy but definitely perfect for weddings. CONS: the straps definitely need to be hemmed and reinforced. The entire day I was scared that they might come off or tear or something. And the dress in pretty heavy. But I sits perfectly on your hips. FYI if you have small ***** like I do in would recommend to get the straps reinforced and hemmed but besides that it was greatt:)
I love this dress! It's stunningly beautiful. The only complaint I have is how long the straps are. I had to make them a lot tighter or else the dress would fall off my front. I ordered a small and I fits everywhere else. I'm also 5'3" so it's a bit long but I expected that when ordering. I can wear eels and it's fine though!
This dress is PERFECT. I am 5'7, 150 lbs and the dress fits better than I could have ever imagined. I was worried the straps wouldn't be supportive enough (I'm a 36D), but it covers/holds everything in place beautifully. The elastic on the back was a bit large, but a medium would have been too small up top. Overall, I'm extremely pleased with this dress and definitely recommend it!
The dress is VERY beautiful. The only thing i would warn people on is that it does have an unfinished hem (it is part of the look...had to contact customer service about it to find out), so the dress looks like it may fall apart any minute (even though it's not). There are strings EVERYWHERE...so gotta spend some time cutting them all :( But other than that, the dress is beautiful and shipping was SUPER fast!
not to be harsh but it was awful on me. it made me look pregnant and the edges around the elastic band around the back and the hem on the bottom were fraying. the straps that go around the shoulders were flimsy at best and the elastic around the waist kept falling from the weight of the dress. i was SO disappointed.

I'm not one for dresses but this one is gorgeous, i am so excited to wear it to prom! The color looks fantastic with a tan and it fits perfectly. Highly recommended!!
The dress is gorgeous, dont get me wrong. But when it arrived, the stiching was coming undone around the crotched bust, and along the hem at the bottom of the dress. Now, this dress is supposed to be a little frayed, but if I accidentally pull on one of those strings it carries ALL the way around the dress. The straps are incredibly thin, and don't feel secure enough to hold the bottom of the dress which is weirdly heavy. Unless your bigger in the bust, you'll need tape to keep the front from gaping at the sides. I'm 5'1 and bought an XS, and will need it to be hemmed at least 2-3 inches. I'm debating on returning due to poor quality.
I am 5'6'', 125 lbs. I ordered this dress in a small, and unfortunately it was way too big. In addition, it was incredibly revealing on the side (and I have a small chest). I would not have been able to get away with wearing this dress in public. Will return!
I actually borrowed this dress (in white) from a friend for my engagement pictures. Even though the straps do not stay up on their own (you need fashion tape), I loved it so much that I decided to purchase my own in a different color. However, the quality of the dress I borrowed was far superior to the one I purchased. I'm 5'7" with a 27" waist and a 32" bust. I ordered a size small since that was the size of the dress I borrowed, but the small didn't fit well. The small was actually too large in the waist and too small in the chest. The bodice was not large enough to cover my chest and the straps were uneven. The dress was also a little long, but that was expected. Overall, I think this dress is beautiful, but was disappointed with the way it fit so I just returned it.
The dress is super pretty! i bought it for prom because i wanted something simple and elegant. The low back makes the dress so unique. I am 5'9 and 145 lbs and i ordered the medium (the dress is the perfect length with 2 inch heels). It fits but i think i could have gotten a small because the waist band does stretch (it is elastic). The only complaint i have is the straps, they are lose and when i move my arms forward the dress slips off! i will have to adjust the straps and make them much tighter. Other than that, awesome dress, and i can't wait to wear it with a tan!
Gorgeous color and perfect fabric, cotton like feel, breathable, color is a pretty faint mint contrasts well with tan olive skin color , if you're wondering what it will look like if your tan it's gorgeous! I'm 5'3 drags a bit but I plan to wear with heels so it's perfect! Formal enough to wear at night when going on a date or something
