I'm the maid of honor at my sister's upcoming wedding in Mexico. I'm the only bridesmaid, so she let me pick my own dress (lucky me). I'd already found a dress I liked by another company, however, I just wanted to nose around to see if I could find something less expensive, since the Mr and I are already about $3500 in the hole for travel expenses, etc. to attend. Well, I struck GOLD when I stumbled across this dress! Not only was it a steal at it's regular price, but I signed up for the email list and got an additional 10% off, plus free shipping. In less than a week, and for $63 total (shhh, don't tell my sister lol), this dress arrived at my door! Anyway, when I ordered, the biggest size they had was a small, so that's what I got. I am 5'9", my chest is 36C. I've got a little backside, but I'm 135, so I'm by no means "big" considering my height. I was worried about the length of this dress, but it's really LONG. I won't be wearing heels (beach wedding), but I could wear 3 1/2" heels and this dress would still be just fine. Now, it doesn't fit as loose in the chest on me as the model, but it fits fine without a bra (it's adequately - very lightly - padded, plus the rouching in the fabric makes it safe lol). With a bra the fabric is a bit stretched in the chest, but if you have a non-padded strapless bra it would be fine. The back is a bit stretchy, so I think that is my saving grace. If you are skinny but chesty, you'll be good to go in this dress! One "con" is the skirt part is fairly see-through, so you will have to wear a flesh colored slip (knee length or longer). I sew, so I will probably make a full length, thin liner/slip to go underneath. However, even with that, for the price, you can beat this dress with a stick... Lastly, it is not as bright green as the photo. It is still in the "mint" range, but it has a bit more blue than portrayed in the photo. Think light beach-glass green as opposed to lime.
I wore this dress in mint to my prom and absolutely LOVED it! This dress made me feel so pretty, I got so many compliments on it and I wished I was a little taller it was long on me! I am 5'3 and wore the x-small it was a perfect fit,the only downside was the fact that it was too long on me!
Love this dress. True to size and fits great. The length is perfect and it is not see through. The color can be a little brighter but still a great buy!!
I agree that it's a beautiful dress but the material looks really cheap and it IS see through
I bought a small and it fits wonderfully except it's a little long. But I'm 5'2" so everything I buy is long on me. No big deal, no surprise! I love the feeling of it and how flowy it looks. I bought it for a wedding on the beach I will be in next month and it's going to be prefect! It came in a little package and I was so surprised when I took it out and had NO WRINKLES!!!! That's a huge plus for me because I HATE wrinkles and ironing!! This is a great price for this dress!! I strongly suggest getting yourself one!! I'm sure any of the other colors they offer are just as beautiful.
I ordered these dresses for my bridesmaids dresses. Worth the shipping! Beautiful dresses and the colour is even better in person. They do run a little large though so I hope they fit my girls well. This was exactly what I was looking for. THANKS LULU!
I ordered this dress for my sister's wedding in SC in June 2014. I just received it and LOVE it. It is perfect for a beach wedding, its very light material that will keep me cool but it isn't see-through at all and creates an awesome, romantic silhouette. I plan to wear it without a bra, it was very snug around my bust/ribcage but it stretches some so its not too tight and good to know it won't fall down! I wasn't disappointed by the color either, although it looks a little less vibrant than in the picture. I'm used to paying $$$ for being in weddings so spending $70 is a dream!
I ordered this dress for my bridesmaids which are all shapes and sizes. It looks amazing on all of them! They were easy to get hemmed for the shorter girls and perfect for the taller ones. I would definitely recommend this dress!
This dress is absolutely gorgeous and I thought it would be perfect to wear to my friend's wedding. It is, however, incredibly see through from the waist down! I am so surprised no one else had that in their review. It doesn't look see through until you stand in sun light and hello! Your legs and backside are on display. So disappointed. :(
This dress is pretty, it doesn't fit true to size or to the chart that is available but it is still sweet and simple.
I ordered this dress for my bridesmaids in my wedding, and they all love it! It fits to size for the most part, but it is very long. Some of the girls will even have to get it hemmed, with heels.
I'm so thankful for all the thorough reviews on this, because I usually have such a hard time finding maxi dresses that fit me all around. I'm 5'9", about 155 lbs, 34B cup and I have some hips/thighs/butt action. With a small bust and smallish waist but bigger hips and long legs, I almost always find stuff that is long enough but too baggy up top, or fits nicely up top but is too tight on my butt and too short on my legs. This dress is PERFECT, and the small, to my amazement, was just right. It hits the floor, so I can actually wear a slight heel, and it hugs my chest enough that I won't be worried about having to tug it up constantly. I am working on losing a few pounds so it's a little less snug in the hips, but it's still totally wearable at my current weight. Super happy with my first Lulu's purchase.
I totally loved it!!! This is the best internet purchase I ever made! the color is a bit darker than what it shows in the website's pictures, it makes you look slimmer, and I didnt have a problem with the see through fabric, everything was great about it and makes me want to buy more of this in different color!!! my bra size is 36B and it fit just fine!
Beautiful color, great fit, but the fabric is not good - it's crinkly and looks cheap. Had to return and buy another color.
I got this dress to wear to a friend's wedding and it is nothing short of perfect! I got the large since I was afraid that the bust of the dress would not have any stretch (I have had this problem before and I'm a 36C) I was pleasantly surprised to find that there was a bit of stretch in the back so I may have gotten away with the Medium. As for the hemming, I'm 5"8 and I still had to take this dress in since I wanted to wear it with flat sandals. This is the perfect summer special occasion dress that can be dress up or down depending on the look you want; the perfect addition to my closet!
I'm 5'5" and a 34C. The medium fit perfect but was WAY long. A quick hem will easily fix the problem. I wore this to prom with a huge seashell necklace and a braided belt. The dress fit perfectly with my casual bohemian style. I LOVED IT.
I got this dress for prom and it looked amazing! I am only 5 feet tall, so I had to get it shortened. Everywhere else the dress fit fine though. The color is gorgeous and I got so many compliments on it! It was a great and affordable purchase!
I am 5'-3" and ordered a small - but I wish it came in an extra small... it was too long, and the chest area was way too baggy, but mostly because there is an excess amount of fabric on that part... I was hoping for this dress to be my bridesmaids dresses, but it just did not fit like I was hoping

The measurements on this are way wrong. I'm a 36C and the large is the tiniest bit loose. I'm athletic but curvy so buy smaller! Also, I'm 5'4" and it is WAY long. Even with my highest heals (and they are high!) it will still have to be taken up. All that said it is soooooo beautiful! I love love LOVE it! The color an cut are stunning. Buy it! It's completely worth the tiny alterations!
