I wore this dress for a formal event and got nothing but great compliments! It pulls in your waist perfectly making your waist tiny. I got a large because I'm 5'11 which was perfect length but was a little big which I expected because I'm normally a medium. With this dress being only $50 it wasn't bad getting alterations. The back of the dress is gorgeous and I absolutely loved it!
So i read everyone's reviews and I had to get this dress for my prom. I had some questions and those were answered within a few minutes, great service on that. The dress itself fits perfectly and the colour is absolutely amazing. The only thing you should keep in mind, if you live outside of the USA, there are extra import costs and the time it will take for the dress to arrive. It took about 2-3 weeks and the import costs were about 20 euros (on top of the 15$ of international shipping). There's absolutely nothing that isnt great about this dress. As the other reviews mentioned, do order a size down. I'm 6'0 (1.80m) and the dress size S fits perfectly in every area.
After reading so so many helpful reviews, it's only fair that I write one myself. This dress is amazing(!!!) it needs to be said! 49$ - it looks like it costs way more than that (my friends wont believe me when I tell them the price!). I'm gonna wear this for my prom next month. After reading the reviews I was terrified of ordering a size too small, too large, too anything. But I went with the advice on ordering a size down. XS was the only thing available, and as I am normally a small, I thought that would be okay. I was nervous it wouldn't fit, but the top part is a perfect fit! The waist however, is a little bit tight on my curvy body, but it's not unbearable, although I might alter it a little. My best advice: order a size down, especially if you do not have a big bust (I'm a B/C cup and XS fit just right). Also, the fabric, lining and length is perfect! I wear extremely high heels, but my feet are still almost covered. This makes the dress feel so formal and elegant. Definitely worth the price! (the color is gorgeous as well!)
I am SO stoked about this dress! I bought it for my sorority formal on Thursday night and received it Monday, so at the speed of lightening! I was a little worried about the fit because I am 5' 9" and 150lbs and don't have much of a waist but I bought a large and it fits like a dream! The only problem is the zipper is a little sticky but the color, the fabric, and the fit are all on point!
I'm 5'2", 105 lbs. I ordered an XS. The dress length was perfect!! I put on heels
This dress is incredible. I was looking for a simple elegant dress to wear for prom and this is it! It looks so much more expensive than it is. You can definitely dress it down for a casual date or dress it up for a dance. I absolutely love it. It does run a bit large, where I'm usually a medium I decided to order a small, because I have tiny ribs. The length is perfect it hits me right at my feet, I don't even think I'm going to bother with heels. The back is gorgeous and sexy in a subtle way. Careful about bust size. I'm a 32D and I can fill out the top fine, but keep in mind that I have a small. This is the first dress I've gotten from Lulus and I'm really happy with it.
I am 5'2 and wear a small. I am a 32-34 C and there was no way the bust on this would have fit. It was tiny around the waist and bigger on the top, but nothing to really hold you in if you have any sort of bust. I will be returning this today. The color was pretty and true to the photo but I thought the front looked cheap and not quite as nice as it looks in the photo.
This is a very pretty dress. I'm 5'10 and so I was hoping it was going to be long enough for me - it honestly is just a touch short. I didn't want my feet to show and they do. All in all though, very pretty.
I bought this dress to wear on holiday in Italy and wasn't disappointed! I am 5'4 and the length is perfect. I am only a 32A so no worries about side boob. The colour is a pretty royal purple colour and the material is light - just as shown in the photo. Shipping cost to the UK wasn't too bad either: about Â£40 to 45.
I ordered this dress 2 weeks ago. I received it yesterday. I loved its color and the chiffon fabric. It's really beautiful. I'll definitely order again from Lulus. :)
I went out with my beauties to celebrate the season in this dress and felt freaking amazing in it. Color is gorgeous and fit is killer. Show stopper, head turner.... Love!
Love this dress:)
I'm a 5'10 maxi lover and I was so excited to receive this dress. The picture doesn't do it justice; it's the perfect shade of purple. It's a classic style that fits any occasion. I've worn it to the office with a blazer, to a wedding, and for a night out. If you order a size down it fits more snuggly and is less revealing but true to size also worked for me, it was just a bit more airy. I just ordered another one in peach too
I bought this in a size small after reading the reviews and it fits perfectly. I would normally have ordered a medium, I'm 5'8" 130 lbs, 34 B, but I'm so happy I didn't. The dress is the perfect length to wear with 3" gold glitter heels, and the straps aren't too long on me (which seems to be one of the biggest complaints). The only thing I had to buy for it was a stick-on bra because the cleavage area is very lightly lined and no normal bra will work with it (obviously). The color is great and the dress is a great addition to my closet. Overall I absolutely love it!
This dress fits like it is made for me! I'm very muscular 5ft 8 and 140lbs. I feel very feminine in this dress, it fits so perfectly. I do have fake breasts so the top is not a problem for me. The zipper however is very sticky. But for a $50 dress it looks like a million. Color is unbelievable. Buy this dress!
I love the color and the material of this dress, its a bit long, I'm 5"8 but with heels their wont be a problem. One problem with the dress I received was that the zipper is very hard to zip. It gets caught easily, a quick fix is just to replace the zipper. But! Busty girls be warned, this dress' top is not very flattering if you have a larger chest and will require fashion tape for it to sit proper on your bust; also on your upper mid drift. I love the style of this dress and even with the bust problem am happy with the buy.
After reading the reviews I was sure that this dress would be perfect. I ordered one size down since most reviews mentioned it ran large. This was not necessarily true for me. The band around the stomach area was too small for me. The zipper was very hard to zip. The top is very lightly lined so it was necessary for me to wear a stick on bra with it. The color was fabulous though! If I was to order again I would order in my normal size and have the straps altered. Good dress for the price but not great!
I bought this in a size small - my measurements are 36-27-35. This dress fit me perrrrfectly! My only complaint is that the straps are slightly long, causing the front to slip down a bit more than I would like. However, a simple alteration will easily fix this! Ladies, if you have larger breasts like I do, then you will definitely need a sticky bra because the top is not lined. I purchased this maxi because I'm basically in love with all things backless. The color of this dress is slightly more vibrant than pictured.. it;s a rich, deep purple.. very elegant in my opinion. I also love how you can see the cut outs on the side. I wore this to dinner at the beach and got many compliments.. This dress looks beautiful in pictures as well! This maxi is a must have! Definitely an essential part of my wardrobe now :)
LOVE this dress!! Like all of the other reviews say, the top is a little loose but nothing that can't be fixed with a little double-sided tape. The low back is phenomenal, as is the length of the dress for us tall girls! I'm 5'10" 155lbs and bought this in a size L...perfect!!
I purchased this dress in May so I could enjoy it during the summer, it is a perfect dress for a party. I used it for a wedding in a hot summer day in Boston, it was the perfect dress, everyone loved it. Problem: Make sure to buy the dress according to your size, unfortunately when I bought it, Lulu's didn't had the small size in stock, so I had to purchase the median size, it still fits perfectly (bottom and waistline), but the top part I had to get it tailored to reduce a bit the size... I'm 5.5ft/168cm - 125lbs/56.5kgs
This dress is absolutely gorgeous and is perfect for many different occasions! The color is definitely more vibrant in person making it a perfect summer dress. My one critique is that it is fairly long and the straps could be a SLIGHTLY tighter. Keep in mind though, I'm 5'3 and 111 lbs. Other than that, I ordered a small and it fit perfectly. Yes, it's a little loose on the top (I'm a 32 C), but it doesn't look bad whatsoever and I'm sure with the right sort of adhesive bra it will look fine. I highly recommend this dress!
Love this dress! The color is exactly what is shown and it absolutely GORGEOUS! I got it for my senior formal and it fits great! I'm a size 6 and I ordered a small and it fits perfectly! It's a little long but nothing a great pair of heels won't fix. I bought an adhesive bra for this and it just looks amazing.
Dress is very sexy! Kind of baggy in the front so if you don't have a large bust keep that in mind. Looks cute with a belt and helps to keep it close to the body so nothing falls out. I'm sort so I'll have to get it hemmed but once I do I can't wait to wear it!
Totally love this maxi dress! I got the purple one and its amazing! I donot wear backless.. so i got a matching lace constructed behind :D Please get similar maxis in wonderful bright colors with normal back too !:)
I'm 5'10" 140 lbs and ordered a small. I figured the dress would be long enough because of other reviews but unfortunately mine was too short. It fit otherwise, but it has to be returned because it didn't even cover my ankles.
Loved this dress in the purple color so much that I ordered it in the wrong size because they were out of my correct size! I had it altered and wore it to a wedding. I've received many compliments and really like the back of this dress! It can be dressed up or down.
Cute dress, the skirt was long for me and the size S was a bit too big.
I am really tiny, 5 foot 2, 110 lbs and yes this dress is a bit long and also loose in the bust area. Buuuut that isn't stopping me from wearing it to my prom! I am so glad I finally got this dress, they sell out so quickly
I love this dress. I'm very small (5'2, 110 lbs) so the dress is a LITTLE loose in the top but nothing that can't be fixed with some double sided tape! The waist fits snug and the material is nicer than it looks in the pictures! It's verrryyy long but that happens with me a lot since I'm so short. I really do like it though.
Love the color and the fabric of this dress. Unfortunately, I had to order a size up since they were out of small sizes, so I'll have to get the dress hemmed and the straps tailored. For us petite girls, be aware that this dress runs long.
This dress is well made and perfect for my shape. I've got curves and an hour glass figure. I always need clothes that accentuate my small middle to make me look curvy rather than fat. This is perfect! I'm 34 C and a size 10 US pants (I have a smaller waist, but a big bidonk). My shirt sizes are smalls. So there's a big difference. This dress accentuates me in all the right places. Thank you!
I actually really loved this dress in green, but the back was very bunchy around the booty area. I decided to keep the purple as I love the style of this dress and knew I needed it altered before my friend's destination wedding. I needed the bust area taken in and also a decent chunk hemmed at the bottom. I am 5'4 and usually wear a size zero or two. If there had been a size XS, it would have fit me perfectly I bet!
This dress is stunning! I bought it for my graduation dance in a few months. I am also 5"10 and I had been worried I would not be able to wear heels with the dress but it tried it on with my heels and it looks fine! I got a size small so the straps are a little short on me as a have big shoulders but it is not a problem. The colour and material are lovely as well.
This dress is amazing! I wore it for my sorority's semi-formal and received so many compliments! I'm 5'10 and the dress went all the way to the floor. The straps were a little long so I had to shorten them but other than that it was perfect!
I bought this dress is multiple colors.. It is fantastic. I am 5'10 and the large was still big on me, so I would suggest sticking with a medium.
I love this dress and I bought it to dress it up for a Mardi Gras Ball, but it didn't live up the hype of other reviews. The chest area was very thin and would have required sticky *****. The color was gorgeous. It fit very strange on my athletic body. The back panel sat in a weird place and didn't fit correctly so I didn't keep it. It wasn't a very flattering dress on my body type either. I still think it is a pretty dress but just not for me.
I fell in love with this dress, the color, the fit, everything about it is amazing! Dressed up or down it looks amazing! I get so many compliments when I wear this! Thinking about ordering it in more colors!
This dress is really cute and the perfect length for me (5'8"). Unfortunately I think it is just too revealing. Obviously the back is totally open, but also from the front you can see some side skin and then the straps were just weird. I was hoping to throw a cardi over it and be able to wear it to work and stuff, so it's just not gonna work for my purposes.
This dress made me feel glamorous! It is breezy and elegant. I wore to a fancy dinner and also dressed it down for a day of shopping. You can't go wrong with this dress. It is an easy dress to wear, with a touch of *** appeal
I am not anorexically thin, but I do have a longer and leaner body type and the dress fits me wonderfully. I got a small, so I would say it runs a little large because I have a C cup and most smalls won't fit my chest! But I am very happy with the purchase - love it! I may have to buy it in another colour :)
I adore the deep purple color of this dress, and its lightweight fabric makes the dress breezy and comfortable. Unfortunately the straps were too long, causing the front of the dress to slouch down quite a bit. I'll need to shorten the straps.
I was hesitant to order this dress in a size small, but read the other reviews that stated the dress runs a bit large. I am a size 6, and go between a small and medium in tops. This dress fit me perfectly in a small! I am 5'8 and the length is perfect - I can wear a heel or sandal and it still looks great. The top is not baggy - I just need to find an adhesive bra that will work with it since the dress material is not incredibly thick. The skirt is lovely - great fabric and light enough that I won't be hot when I wear this during the summer months. This is my first Lulu's purchase and I couldn't be happier!
