I am 5'3" and 110lbs and ordered the XS and it fits perfectly-- hits right above my knee! I am so excited to wear this dress. It's so versatile you can wear it to a classy event or dress it up for a night out. The material is nice and thick so you don't see any panty lines and the V cutout in the front is not too revealing. Can't say enough about this dress!
After reading reviews about this dress, I ordered it in hopes of wearing it to a wedding. I'm 5' 1" and 115lbs (34B). I went for the extra small and it fits amazingly! Normally I have to get my dresses hemmed but this one fits me just right. The material is awesome and it hugs in all the right places. Highly recommend this dress!
Very classy and sexy dress! Can wear to work/party/happy hour
I'm 5'8" and ordered a size small it was very fitted but that is exactly what I wanted. The neckline was perfect, not too plunging or revealing but it still looked good. My only problem was the length. I bought this for my homecoming and had it hemmed 5 inches because it was at my knees however it is the perfect length for work or a classy event. I loved it.
Beautiful LBD. Im 5'7 and got it hemmed about 2 inches. It is the perfect dress. Sexy but classy. Strongly recommend
I'm 5'6 125# and fit perfectly into a small. The fabric is nice and thick. It rides up a bit but since it's long to start, it's not bad. The cut is too low for work but perfect for a classy night out
I needed an LBD that was a little bit of sexy and easy to dress up. This dress lived up to all my expectations. I'm 5'2" with curvy features and this dress hugs in all the right spots and makes you look lean and amazing. Definitely one of my favorite things I've ever purchased from LuLu's!
Great dress! The material is amazing. It feels very thick which helps to add curve.
After reading all the great reviews on this dress I knew I had to give it a shot and I'm glad I did! I plan on wearing it to a friend's wedding but it'd also be perfect for a nice date night. I don't have much "goods" to show off up top, so I could even wear it to work since the length is almost to my knees. I'm also impressed at how quickly it got to me! I will definitely be ordering from Lulu's again very soon!
Love this dress. I am 5'8", 128 lbs and ordered the small- it fits perfectly. The material is stretch so I think an XS would have also fit but I wanted to be able to wear it to work without worry. If you have any cleavage though, it WILL show more than you would think based on the model. I wore a tank top under it for work and wear it without a tank when going out.
Bought it for a wedding. Sexy yet stunning. Great material that's what really impressed me for the price. Fits great. Have already told my sister. Co workers and friends about lulus. Love it
I purchased this dress based on the reviews alone. Do yourself a favor and do the same. This dress is MAGIC! I am 5'3" 133 lbs with an athletic hourglass figure, 34D chest. I purchased a small and it fit perfectly. This dress enhances your curves, tapers your waist and gives you crazy awesome cleavage. I'm short, so the dress is like a midi on me, but it's perfect because it shows so much cleagave. I DEFINITELY recommend this dress!
This is the perfect LBD to add to your collection. I ended up sizing up to a Medium (5'4" 125lbs) so that it wasn't skin tight and actually hits right above my knees.
By far, my favorite online purchase ever. I'm 5'9" 140 lbs. I ordered a small and it's fitted without being too tight and the PERFECT length. I could not be happier. This dress is so flattering.
I've worn this dress to work a few times and have received so many compliments! I ordered a small and I am 5'5", 130 lbs with a big butt, thicker legs, and smaller B cup. The dress really complimented my lower body and was the perfect length. My only complaint would be the V-cut was a lot deeper than I thought and with a smaller chest it tends to show my bra if I'm not careful.
I bought this dress for my friend's wedding. Everyone at the wedding were couldn't stop staring at me. I got a ton of compliment. It's classy and sexy too! material is very soft and comfy! I got black and white one. I am 5.3ft 127pound I got small size. it fits perfect!
This is one of the cutest (sexy with heels/casual with flats)lbd's that I own The fit is true to size and accentuates in all the right places. It's like a comfortable second skin. I love love LOOOOVE it!!
I'm 5'8" about 140 and originally ordered this in a size Medium. It fit well, but was a little large around the shoulders. I sent it back for a small and it fits perfect! This is the perfect little black dress - something every girl needs! I definitely recommend.
5'8 - 145lbs This dress is really good material and fits nicely. I ordered a medium and fits perfectly where normally mediums are a little bit tight. It is fairly long so its good for nice dinners or even the work place. But i would def recommend it.... its a great staple for any wardrobe!
I'm 5'2 and 115lbs and ordered size small. It fits me very comfortably. I wish I got 2.
I'm very skinny, 5'4, and 110lbs but this dress was hugging my body that it looked like I had curves!! So amazing and soft. Sexy yet really classy, the deep v-cut isn't that bad but then again I'm only a B32, but I would deff recommend this dress to any girl I know!
Love this dress!!!! It looks great on and hugs my body in all the right places. The material looks great as well and love the sexy plunging neckline. The only critique is that the cap sleeves look a little cheap up close but, I plan on wearing this dress at night so I figure no one but me will notice. Overall, you won't regret ordering this sexy dress!
I love this dress so much! I got it for my girlfriends bachelorette party and got so many compliments. I wanted a sexy dress that I could wear out but I'm married and a mommy so I didn't want to be too sexy. I can't wait to wear it again it may be to her wedding haha. (5'5" 130 lbs 32 D) and I got the small and it was perfect.
As everyone else has said, this is a gorgeous dress. the top looks even better in person. I am 5'0, 105pds and the xs fit perfectly. It was definitely too long but I will be having it hemmed. I would note however that it shows more cleavage than in the picture, I am a 32C and I wouldn't be able to wear this to work even with a not-padded bra. However, it is perfect for going out or for a date night.
This dress is a great find! I was looking for something flattering and sexy but still classy for a bachelorette party in a few months. This dress is perfect! I ordered a small (5'7'', 135 pounds, athletic build, 34B) and it fits like a glove but is really flattering. I don't have any problems with the top neckline moving around or flapping. I most likely will have the dress shortened since its for a bachelorette party and it hits about at my knees. As a side note, I wouldn't consider this a work appropriate dress due to the neckline or the body-hugging fabric.
I have bought lots of things from Lulus and I love them all but this dress is perfection. All the reviews convinced me to buy it and with so many people giving it great reviews I knew it would be good but I just didn't know how good. It gives you the best shape ever, i love the material and it can be dressed up or down. I have nothing bad to say about it- I even wore a bandeau underneath it so the v neck wasn't so low if you are more of the modest type. It is my new favorite go to dress. I blogged about it if you want to read more: http://caitshea.blogspot.com/2014/06/the-midi-dress.html
RESPONSE FROM LULUS.COM: Hi Caitlin! Thank you so much for this review! You rock!!! XOXO
Beautiful dress. Made of thick material. Very stretchy and snug. Makes the waist look tiny. I'm 5'1 and got a small. It hits just above the knee, although I kind of have a long torso so that may have something to do with it. The **** at the top depends on how comfortable you are with showing a bit of skin. I have a quite modest style and I don't think it's too much. Although the dress is pretty modest, the **** and the tightness brings out the shape which makes it very sexy in a classy way.
Love it! It feels like a "Mad Men" dress to me. It fits very well and it is flattering, I usually have troubles wearing a tighter dress but this one actually bumps up my confidence a lot! It does show a bit of cleavage so I wouldn't wear it work but on a date or fancy dinner it would be perfect!I'm just waiting for an opportunity to wear it now.
I wore this dress for my graduation. I got a lot of compliments; however, the fabric is pretty thick (which made me feel extremely hot at times).
This dress wasn't made for me at all. The opening **** at the top of the dress was flipping right open and it was not flattering. the dress was also super long. Literally at my kneecaps. To put it into perspective, I am approximately 140 pounds and 5'5". The material of the dress is great however.The dress is nice but not made for someone with my body type.
Fits perfect! I'm 5'2 130lbs and the medium was perfect.
I don't have the biggest ***** in the world, so if you have a C or bigger you may have to get the dress tailored. I had to sew up the cleavage a little bit because it was not work appropriate. Other than that, I really love the dress. It is very slimming and a perfect length for work and for after work!!
I snagged the very last size Small. I wore it to a wedding last weekend...my husband was an usher so we didn't get to see each other much until the reception...he wouldn't stop asking me where I got this dress! So that must have meant something!! Perfect fit, very easy to slip on. A++
I'm 5'6 125 lbs and 34C. Ordered a small and this baby fits like a glove. Loveeeee this dress.
This dress deserves the many great reviews it already has received. It's sexy and sophisticated. I am 5'7, 127lbs, 34C and ordered a small. It's definitely fitted but the material is stretchy and looks appropriate. Don't hesitate to buy!
This is so flattering and hugs your body perfectly. The only thing is the split in the front wouldn't stay even across my chest so one side kept flapping open (so to speak) all day. Kind of annoying but I'm pretty flat chested so maybe that's why?
This dress fits perfectly! I have a small bust and large hips and it's always so hard finding the perfect dress...but this is the one! I can even wear a regular bra with it and it actually makes me have a little cleavage! I love that the dress comes right above the knee. It's super sexy but so classy at the same time. I can't wait to wear this out!
Beautiful little black dress, got a lot of compliments and makes you feel so sexy.
This dress fits to a T and its insanely sexy. I'm 5'10 and thought the length was perfect and could see it maybe being too long for shorter girls but hey, its easier to take away fabric than add! This is my new go-to black dress.
I LOVE this dress! I wore it in Vegas, and am looking for more opportunities to wear it this summer. I ordered a small, I am 5-2 and 120 lbs, and it fit very snugly. The fabric is thick which makes it quite flattering.
The picture was so nice. This dress looks like a $12.99 dress. Disappointed. Material is extremely cheap looking.
I liked the shape of the the dress but the material was not as expected.
In 140# 5'5". All muscle. This dress fits well (I bought a medium). It does however scrunch up over my butt as I walk. I also am not crazy about how long it is, but I have short legs. Def for someone tall. I am only returning bc I bought another dress at the Same time and the other fits better.
Love this dress. Perfect length. Not too sexy, not too conservative.
This dress is fabulous and so happy I bought it! I wear a size 4-6, 5'6" and 135# and this fits like a glove. At first when I pulled it out of the box I thought it was going to be too small but then when I put it on, it fits absolutely perfectly. This will be great for work then out for happy hour or a fancy dinner! Love it.
it's pieced together weird at the shoulders and on the bust. i'm 5'3", A cup. i wanted to love this dress because overall it's a flattering fit and with the right bra, i actually have cleavage (very rare). but the way it fit around my chest and shoulders was just too awkward. sadly returning.
I bought this dress for a wedding - i'm 5'3, 155lbs and it fit like a glove, literally, body hugging. I would have maybe gone up a size, just because the zipper in the back wrinkled a little (because it's so fitted). Be aware that this dress is ************! I have a large C cup, and it was a cleavage show. (have never gotten so many compliments! haha)
I wore this dress for my graduation and I looked amazing!! Cute dress
This dress is a must! It's classy but sexy at the same time. I have a hard time finding dresses that you don't need to worry about pulling down all of the time and this one meets that requirement. I'm 5'7" and 120 pounds. I ordered the small and it is snug but the fabric is stretchy so it hits all my curves in the right way.
I was skeptical at first because I am a curvy girl and wasn't sure how flattering this would be on me but I love it!! I am about 5'6" and 170 lbs (just had a baby!! Eek!) I wore this dress for mine and my husbands anniversary. It's gorgeous! I probably could have gotten away with a medium even cause the fabric is stretchy. Love it!!!!!
I can't wait to wear this dress. I'm 5'9"/135lbs/34DD and purchased in a SMALL which fits like a glove. The dress is snug but that's how it's intended to fit. The V is deep but not too deep. Perfect date night dress!
I ordered this dress for a cruise and it was PERFECT! I'm 5'8, 130lb and got a small and it's perfect. I'm "long and lean" but also muscular as I weight lift, so the shoulders were a little tight because I have bigger delts but that's just me, and I loved the cap sleeve so it could show off my toned/muscular arms. I chose to wear a black tank underneath to raise the neckline just a little to be more modest, and it worked great. This came just above my knees and really did fit like a glove, it was perfect for my cruise, and will be the perfect LBD for future events.
I love this dress. I'm a big girl too. 6' 190lbs. I got the large. It is snug. But is suppose to be. Not too tight. This has a nice stretch and comes at a great length on my tall frame. Nice little plunge at the neckline. Not too deep. Can't say enough about this dress
Let me start off by saying that this is a great dress. I can't believe it's only $40! The fabric is a quality thick fabric yet the dress hugs you in all the right places. It's not too short either. The only thing I would say about it is that busty girls need to be wary of the deep V cut. the model doesn't seem to have anything going on up top (LULU's could include some bustier girls to give us ladies an idea on how the dress would wear) so it doesn't look very revealing on her. Lemme tell you...it was on me. There was tons of cleavage. This doesn't diminish the fact that this is an amazing dress that is comfortable yet sexy. I just had to tweak it a bit by sewing it up about a quarter inch. Now it's perfect. I totally recommend it.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this dress! I purchased it for a more formal event and I was looking for something classy, understated but yet sexy. This dress is all of those things! Great quality material and really really nice fit. The neckline goes pretty low but not in a "in your face... look at my cleavage" way. So happy with this purchase! Timeless dress that I know I will get a lot of use out of.
This is dress is a must have! I am 5'5", 125lb, 32-27-36 and ordered a small. It fits like a glove and shows off all of your curves. Going bra-less is not an issue for me. Can't wait to wear it this weekend getaway to SF with the BF!
This dress is a winner. I'm on the curvier side (size 10/12, 5'6, 34DD) and found this dress to be extremely flattering. It definitely runs large, I could have gotten away with a medium and actually had to tailor the large in the waist. The material is great quality and the length was perfect. I hope this dress will eventually come in other colors! A+++
Love love love this dress. I am 5'2 and bought a xs and the length is perfect. The dress is made from a great fabric that hugs your curves without feeling too tight. Some of the other reviews expressed a concern with the deep v cut but I am still able to wear a regular bra with this dress so I don't think it is too extreme. Overall it is the perfect LBD!
This dress fits me soo well. Iam a 32DD and a small on bottom and this makes me feel slim. It fits true to size, i ordered a small! Thank you lulus!
I am 5"8 145lbs and a M was perfect, really comfortabel and classy. Perfect go to dress, you can dress it up or down.
I am 5'9 and 128lbs and I read the reviews and ended up going a size smaller than I expected and it is perfect. I am a 27 waist and a 34 breast which would have been perfect for a medium but I got a small and since the fabric is slightly stretchy it fit like a glove! Love it and recommend it to anyone. Cant wait to wear it. Fabric is very nice for the price!
Amazingly sexy black dress. It is simple and sleek, but the deep V adds a nice twist and makes it hotter!
This is a great dress. It fits true to size and is made of a soft material. I havent worn it anywhere yet, but plan to wear it to a friends wedding. Great purchase!
Love this dress! So flattering in so many different ways. The only thing is I'm not quite sure where I can wear it but I'm sure I'll be able to figure something out ;) Fabric is thick and can even hide a little tummy! Im 5'4 curvy, 34D and 130lbs and I got a small.
This dress is BEAUTIFUL and great for the price. I have been looking for a dress like this for a long time and i was so happy when i saw it i HAD to try it out. Im 5'4 and 105 lbs and I ordered an XS and it fit very tight around the body but the material was stretchy enough to slip into. I think many people rated this as fitting large because of the top of the dress. The top is VERRRYYY low and i still have to figure out a way to keep everything covered that doesn't look bad so i guess thats the only con about this dress. It is very long but it could be hemmed if you need it to be.
Seriously love this dress! The material is of good quality and is very forgiving in the sense that it somewhat holds you in. I only labeled mine as a little bigger than true to size because I'm 5'4" and 120lbs and curvy in my bust and bum. Sometimes smalls can be too small for me in those areas, but this dress was not AT ALL. It fits great in all the right places for me however for someone who is a little smaller than me or not quite as curvy, they may want to go down a size. I am so happy with this dress and do feel it is great quality for the price! I will need to use fabric tape to keep the top of the v-neck tamed down, but I think that is because my bust is a bit bigger (not a big deal to me). Thanks, LuLu's!
This dress is so fab! It fits nicely and shows off your curves.
Sexy!!!! But upscale also
I am so happy with this dress. It is super sexy, very fitted, but because it's a little longer, it is still classy and not "too much". The material is thick enough that even though it's super tight, it holds you in and is slimming. The wires that hold up the deep V-neck give it a structured look. (I bought a small, for reference I'm 5'4 and 125.)
Love this dress! I am 5'10 appx 145lbs and got a size L and it fits great. It shows a lot of clevage if you have bigger boobs (I am a 34DD). Long enough for me as well. The material is clingy so it hugs every curve, I don't mind since its black, but I know not everyone likes that feeling.
I just wrote a review and forgot to post that I ordered an extra small!
I am in love with this dress! The fabric is stretchy and soft so it hugs your curves perfectly! I'm 5'11" and 32-28-38 and the small fits me like a glove. I was worried when I looked at the size chart because of my hips and thought the small may be too tight but it was PERFECT! Also, the dress really is a midi! I have a hard time buying dressed because my torso is so long, but this dress' length is perfect! I couldn't be happier with my purchase!
If you're thinking about getting this dress, do it before it's too late! It's a gorgeous LBD, very sexy but in a tasteful and classy way. I was sooo happy with this dress when I tried it on. I'm 5'3, 110 lbs and I got a small. It wasn't too big or anything, but I'm exchanging it for an xs so that it's a little tighter. But let's just say that if the xs was out, I would keep the small, that's how much I love this dress. The fabric is great and the cleavage is not revealing at all. Gorgeous!!
With all the positive reviews I really was hoping for this dress to be a hit. But sadly, it wasn't and I had to return it right away. First thing I noticed after trying it on was that it was way too long! I'm 5'2 and ordered a small and it went below my knees! Being petite, wearing dresses that are touching my knees or lower is a huge no no! Secondly, the fabric felt very cheap. Lastly, the **** in the chest was too low. I'm a 34D and thought I'd fill it out nicely giving it some sexy cleavage but it just ended up being too low and showing too much. Wanted to love, looks great on the model, not me. Thought about hemming it but I didn't think it was worth it.
I love this dress, it's a perfect cocktail dress that is sexy because it fits like a glove and hugs all the right areas but is not too sexy (i.e. trashy looking). I am 5'2 about 110 lbs give or take. Even my conservative boyfriend approved.
This dress is so cute and the fabric is stretchy and wonderful just like all of the other reviews say. However it was too big in the bust for me and I will have to exchange the Medium I ordered for a Small (I am 5'8 135lbs)
I love the fabric... doesn't wrinkle easily, even when I'm sitting at a desk all day. I'm 5'8',130 and a 34D, got the size small and it fits well and the length is perfect. Warning: The V neck is very V. Little too boobalicious for work, but a bandeau makes it more appropriate. My one complaint is that the top of the V at the collar tends to kind of flop around. It almost needs fabric tape to tape it down to your skin. Or fold them under. Or sew them together... Haven't quite figured that part out yet. All in all, it's a keeper.
I loved this dress. I read the reviews and it's perfect. Im 5'2 120 lb and I ordered size small. Perfect dress for every ocassion!
This dress is hot!! The material is great and the dress seems really well made. I am 5'1, 115lbs and I ordered a small. It fits like a glove and makes my curves look insane. Well, those were my husbands words! The only thing is it goes right below my knees (unlike the model) because I am short. But with a pair of heels it doesn't matter in the least.
Love this LBD! Even though it is form fitting it is covered up enough to be a perfect dress for a Friday at the office and heading straight over to Happy Hour! LOVE the fabric as its very flattering - fitted but not tight or constricting. have received so many compliments! 5'7" and bought a Small - hits at top of knees.
I'm 5'8 and 145 pounds. It fits perfectly and is everything I wanted and more - classy and sexy!!
I bought this dress for either a dinner date with my boyfriend, or dinner with family. It fits amazingly well. The fabric is comfortable and snug but not binding. The lines of the dress are very flattering, and fits me well even though I have a long torso and am 5'10". I ordered a large, which was perfect for me. The length was nice as well, because sometimes dresses aren't long enough for my height.
I'm 5'6, 120 lbs, 34d, long legs/arms, size small/2 I ordered a small - the dress itself is cute, but i HATED the material. it was that soft cotton feel, and i thought it would be more of a dressy material. I didnt even question whether to send back or not, while the look is adorable, the material wasnt for me.
I bought this dress to wear to a holiday party and it did not disappoint! The fabric is thick and stretchy which is very flattering! I'm very petite (5'2, 110 Ibs) and the dress was a little loose on my chest. But with some double sided tape, it wasn't too noticeable! I got many compliments and can't wait to wear it again!
I'm 5'2 and 32A. I got the XS and the bottom fits beautifully even though I'm generally XS on top and S/M on bottom. The material is really nice especially in weight. I love when you don't have to worry much about panty lines. The top fits okay with a bra but without it's not so great. Unfortunately, the V dips too low to wear it with a bra unless I buy one of those special bras with weird straps which would be kind of silly to do for a $40 dress. Also didn't realize that the sleeves were kind of structured/cap sleeves that stick out a little. I've never really been able to pull that off and feel comfortable evern though these are very understated and not at all obnoxious. This one is probably going back though.
I found it a bit hard to choose the right size, as in Belgium we don't calculate sizes in inches :) ... I'm 1m68 and 60 kg .. I tried to recalculate my measurements to inches and got a Large. Runs out a bit too large for me but still love this dress. The fabric of these dresses are amazing !
Great material! Fits perfect, not too tight but great in appearance!
I have wide hips and am 5'10, I got this dress in a medium. The length is perfect, not awkwardly long, not too short. (you can actually bend over in it) my only problem was finding a bra! I usually like push up bra's - especially for a dress like this but you could totally see every single bra I own in it!!! :(
The dress itself appears to be made of high quality material, but I noticed that the notches at the top of the dress don't stay flat. They poke outward and it looks weird.
The dress is a really good material and fits well throughout but the V is really low. This picture (model) is deceiving because this dress shows a lot of cleavage. I couldn't wear this to a work function but it will be nice for a night on the town or dinner with my husband. Overall I really like the fit and feel of the dress though! Good length as well.
I love this dress! The material of the dress is pretty thick and feels like it is good quality. The dress hugs your curves, but doesn't feel too tight. I am normally a medium, but ordered a large after looking at the measurements. It fit well on my bottom, but was a little loose on top, but that is because I have a bigger bottom and am small on top. I would highly recommend this dress! It is classy and the notch on the top makes it a little sexy!
I'm about 5'7 and 135 lbs and I got a M. The dress fit too big around the waist and the shoulders were huge... And not a trendy should pad huge... Just huge. It would be a great dress if it fit right!
Beautiful dress! I was worried that it won't fit because I am curvy. However, it fits like a glove. I am truly happy with my purchase and will be buying more dresses from LuLu more often instead of going to the mall.
