I order size based on whether or not I think it will fit my chest and usually run between a medium or a large. After reading the reviews, it sounded like the dress runs a bit large in the chest and flairs out around the waist (which it does). If you have a decent size chest, order up a size. The dress is pretty stretchy, which is great, but it is by no means roomy in the chest area. Wish I had ordered a large, solely because my chest (36C) was hard to fit.
By far the best dress I have ever bought. It flares out at just the right place to compliment my body. It is also versatile you can be very fancy in it or more casual if you wear it with some cowgirl boots or flats.
I ordered this dress in black XS and was very pleased with the fit (I am 5'1" and 105 lbs.). It is a very flattering dress with a fitted top and flowy skirt that hits just above the knee. Looks great with a statement necklace. Just ordered it in ivory as well!
I ordered this dress in black and size small. I am 5'4 and 120 pounds with broad shoulders. The dress highlighted all the right areas, but it was a little tight in the armpit area. Regardless, this dress is a must have in black and red.
Didn't know exactly how it would look... But when I first tried it on I was in love!!! I usually have a hard time finding dresses that look right since I'm 5'8" and 115lbs with long legs and it looks so good! The material is made out of is kind of stretchy so I feel like it won't wrinkle at all, which is a plus! I'm just in love with this dress and from reading other reviews it sounds like it fits EVERY body type!
I absolutely love the dress! I received so many complements. I ordered the size of this dress according to reviews. I weigh about 135lbs 5'8 and have long legs and I am 34b and ordered small. Dress fit really good! But just a bit tight, but dress will stretch. I never write reviews but I wanna help someone out with my descriptions, so they will order there dress!!!
I love this dress. I have it in red as well. I'm tempted to get it in another color - but I just don't have many occasions to wear it. Can totally be dressed up with necklace and heals. It's worth buying. You won't regret it. So versatile. And flattering.
this dress is just perfect. if you're like me and needed just the perfect dress to throw on for every occasion. this. is. the. one. it runs small though and the fabric is not what it looks like in the picture. the neckline also makes it a little difficult to pair with statement necklaces. other than that it is perfect
I'm curvy and tall and this dress is cute and fits well. True to size. I like it! It's a bit short, so more weekend wear than work wear if you're a taller girl.
es un vestido increíble y queda super bien me encanto el material es pesado y no tiene transparencias asi que esta perfecto!!
best skater dress. Fits perfect . I defiantly recommend it
Such a great dress. Super flattering and hits at the waist in just the perfect way. Love it! I am 5'4 and got a small that hit a few inches above the knees.
I bought this dress after reading all the amazing reviews! I got this dress in an XS (5' 100 lbs) and it fits perfectly.
I love this dress! I'm 5'1 and about 112 pounds with a 32 DD cup size. I got the XS and the fabric just brings your waist in making you look so tiny!
Runs a little bigger than other XS dresses I've bought from LuLu's, but not so much that it's a problem. Very cute and comfy. I'm glad I got it and can't wait to wear it!
I love love love this dress! I wore it wine tasting and the party was themed Kentucky Derby, so I wore a huge hat with it and it looked amazing!!
This dress is sexy in a very modest way. I ordered a medium (5'10" 150lbs 34D) it fits perfect there is a little give in the fabric especially in the bust area (lucky for me because I'm well endowed). For how tall I am the length is still very appropriate.
I don't normally write reviews, but I buy a lot based on the reviews of others. All I can say is: THANK YOU reviewers for helping me decide...I've gained a few pounds and was looking for something that was flattering to WOW my guy! This dress is super flattering! I ordered a medium because I'm trying to lose weight. I weigh 148, and 5'4", 36D. Fit like a glove and helped a lot in my mid-section. It gives you a beautiful hourglass figure and fuller breasts look super sexy. Will get one in every color. True to size...perfect! Fast shipping.
Absolutely LOVE this dress! I'm 5'9" and 141 lbs and a 34b. I bought a size medium and it fits perfectly. The length is perfect, not too short and not too long and has a little flirty flare at the bottom. Very flattering dress, even if you have a little bit of a tummy this dress hides it well. Fabric is good quality too. Wish they had more colors in this dress! Can't wait to wear this out!
I bought this dress for an upcoming trip to Vegas, its very cute and the material is great! I would recommend this dress, i'm 5'5 130lbs and i'm pretty curvy, I bought a small and it fits perfect!
I ordered this dress for a wedding
I love this dress, it fits great!!. I am 5'10" about 145lbs, 34DD, I have larger hips which makes some dresses look ridiculous on me. This hides my hips and is actually long enough on me- it's so hard to find dresses that don't look like shirts on me! This is a great length and it's not a dress Ill have to wear tights with to make it look acceptable.
I absolutely adore this dress! The material has a little bit of give, which is great for those of us with a larger chest (like me). Also, the skirt hits the perfect spot that makes your waist look tiny. The length of the dress is also very flattering, and I love the slight flare of the skirt that keeps it looking flirty and fabulous. I definitely recommend purchasing this dress when it comes back in stock.
This dress is the perfect LBD. You can dress up or down, and the fit and length are ideal ( I am 5'3"). Also a great price for the perfect LBD. I will get a lot of wear from this dress.
I have this dress in 3 colors... so clearly this review is only going up from here. The dress is simply perfect, and it is an incredibly flattering LBD that I always get compliments on. I am 5'7" and prefer styles that aren't too tight, so the flirty flare on this dress is wonderful. It hits at all the right places, and avoids all the wrong ones. I can wear it with heels or with flats, and am always comfortable and confident in this dress. It goes perfectly with different types of jewelry and accessories. The material is a little heavy which is nice, because it's not the type of dress that will look ratty after a few washes or cleans.
I bought this in a small and I loved it but it was too big. I am 5'4'', about 114 pounds, and a bra size 32C. This dress was baggy on top and wasn't tight around the waist. I wish it still came in black. The fabric was really nice though and I wish it had fit.
I am 5'10", 145lbs, with 36" bust, 29" waist, and 40" hip. I went by the measurements and got a Large and it fit perfectly! Just like the picture!
This dress is perfect! The material is heavy and won't wear out after multiple uses. I ordered a small, I'm 5'3" and 105 lbs and it fits me just above the knees, but this dress is perfect for every shape. It's also great for any occasion, fancy or casual! Totally happy with my purchase.
This is my favorite dress I've ever bought not just on LULU*S, but anywhere. The material is amazing and it's not too short. It looks just like the picture on the website. It's a great LBD and can be worn for many things!
I love this dress. It is so flattering. I am 5' 5" and 130lbs and ordered the medium. It fits perfectly. One of my friends borrowed and she loves it as well... I think I will buy another one in a different color.
Loved this dress, but couldn't zip it up all the way because top area is too small. I wear a 36d bra size. I have to return it:( Material is actually a good material, not thin at all.
"This dress is simple and beautiful, perfect for any occasion. I love the thickness of the material and the movement of the flare bottom. I was thinking of getting it hemmed because I am short right under 5', but I might just leave it at is because I will be wearing it to a professional event. Overall, I am very satisfied."
Im 5 foot 4 120lbs I got the small and it fits perfect. The length is great I can wear tall heels an it's not too short. The material is slightly heavy but it makes the skirt stay down. I love it
So cute and flattering! I know I'm going to wear it all the time.
It looks simple to me but I need a black dress anyway. It fits so well and I'm glad I've decided to get this one!
This dress fits great, a little loose around the waist though. It is heavy but there's enough fabric around the skirt to give it some lift without being too fluffy. I can't wait to wear it out!
I was looking for a black skater dress and bought this after reading the reviews. I love the dress and received a ton of compliments on it. I'm 5'7" 132 lbs, waist is 27" and bought a medium and fits like a glove.
I don't really leave reviews but I was totally impressed by the dress! The price can't be beat and it's so flattering. It's a little stretchy in the chest area was a big help for me having DD's but I'm small around the waist. The dress is sexy without showing more than you're comfortable with. Love it!
This is my first Lulus order and I love it. It's the perfect A-line and it actually hits at the waist. The only thing is that I had to send back the medium I originally ordered for a large, so I assume the clothes on this site run small (?). I usually wear a small to a medium in most stores. I'm 5'-7", 135lb.
I loved this dress in theory. In person, not so much. I am 5'3", 30D bust, petite build but athletic curves. I ordered the Small, which fits but it isn't very stretchy in the waist area (it's main downfall) which is the smallest part on me! While it zipped just fine, I know if I ate while wearing it, I would feel like I was stuffed like a sausage. It was just an odd fit to me, since everything else was fine and then the smallest part of my body felt too tight...the medium would have been too large everywhere else. So, this wasn't for me. Hope this helps someone!
I love this dress, its so comfortable, flowy and cute. LBD perfection
for some reason i got this in medium, but i wish i got this in a smaller size. the dress is really cute and is just a bit baggy on me. the material is stretchy and pretty thick and heavy.
This dress fits very true to size. The fabric is great and it is a very well made dress. I am on the shorter side so i did tailor the dress to make it a little shorter. Its fun and flirty for dinner or a date. I have already worn it and cant wait to wear it again!
I wasn't expecting the dress to be this material (polyester). But it's mostly because I didn't read what it was made out of. But it's a material that won't cause fading. It is also a thicker material, which is a good thing. Overall, I REALLY REALLY like the dress, I just don't love it... hence the 4 stars. (It's just personal preference, nothing wrong with it at all!)
To start I'm 5'3 120 lbs. 34 26 34. Well this is a cute dress, but definitely a different type of material, like thicker stretchy swimsuit material, like others mentioned. I'm not quite sure how I'm going to pull this off for spring as it is quite thick and heavy. Would be a super cute winter dress with a cardigan and tights though! I would say it runs true to size and I do love the length as it hits me just a touch above my knee. It's flattering but definitely flows out and I debate whether it makes me look a little wider than what I am. Nothing a cute belt hopefully can't define.
I was expecting this dress to be longer than normal dresses and just above the knee (just like the picture), but since I'm very lean and have legs a mile long it was too short. I was disappointed I couldn't wear this dress to school (very strict dress code) but it was still cute to wear out to dinner. It also is a little more formal/ dressy than I expected because of the very flared skirt.
I'm 5'11, 155 pounds, and a 32 C. I originally got a large, reading here that it would be long enough, but the top and waist were far too roomy. I used free return shipping and exchanged for a medium, which took a really long time to get to me. The top and waist fit, but the skirt became significantly shorter. I could only wear it with tights for it to be decent. Overall disappointed with the dress and the shipping process :-/ TL;DR Dress too short can't wear. Shipping process takes too long.
