Perfect little black dress

I got so many compliments on this dress. The triangle shaped neck line looks great on anyone. I am a 34C, 5'5 at 139lbs and a small fit like a glove. I love the length down to the knee, made the dress classy and formal enough for a wedding, but fun enough for a date night. I've worn it to two weddings already and got a lot of compliments. It is my favorite dress in the closet now. It washed really well by hand and dries fast over night.

PERFECT 10

This dress was beautiful. I received compliments all night long and my girlfriends were floored when they found out how little I spent on it. There is a good amount of stretch to it and the top runs big so I would think about ordering a size down. This is the perfect black dress to have in your closet.

Fabulosity!

So my fun company gets news that this year's Holiday party will be a Masquerade BALL - excitement was the general consensus. I knew that I wanted a sleek and tasteful form fitting, yet appropriate for a work function type of dress and this delivered hands down. I am not the bustiest girl in the yard (but my milkshake still brings all the boys to the yard - ha). I am 5'7" 145 lbs and the small was perfect! To fill out the bust area I plan to purchase a nice push up strapless and to add some "cutlets" for vavavoom. The dress is a very modest length (falls right at my knee) which makes me happy. I can dance without worrying about the dress riding up on me throughout the night. Lulu got it right!

Amazing dress!

I ordered this dress after requesting an email when it was restocked. I'm so in love with it and how it fits my petite frame. I wore it for my birthday and received compliments all night! All my friends wanted it! Perfect lbd♡

Loved it

I'm short but have a chest and this dress was amazing. The only thing I need to do is have it altered a tad to make it stay on top better. I went up a size from what I normally purchase because the measurements of a 30 inch chest seemed small but I didn't buy my actual bra size and it worked for the night. I received lots of compliments. It's definitely going to be worn again.

Nearly Perfect

The dress is a knock out. I wore spanx underneath to help the dress stay up- just an additional help. The top runs big. I got double stick tape and taped the dress to my strapless bra, and it was fine. Also, the points on either side of the bust dont really stay up and pointy. They tended to flop over. I would suggest adding another little square of double stick tape to those points, and maybe just stick it to your skin. I worse this to a wedding and it was a hit. Loved it. It's tight and flattering :)

Surprisingly great

I am 5'8 with wide hips, hockey thighs and I am a 34B. I have a little gut and was nervous about this very fitted dress but the material was very flattering. I am still going to buy spanx just for a little extra help, but honestly most fitted dresses on me are not flattering at all. I ordered a medium and it was perfect! I am really happy with my purchase!! Enjoy

Perfect lbd

Absolutely loved this dress! I'm 5'7" and have troubles with dress length. This was perfect! Not short but not too long. With a medium it hit right above the knee. It's fitted but not tight. Was great for a wedding! Paired with a blazer and it was perfect! Would love in other colors!

Not good

The material of this dress is super thin and unforgiving. If you have spanx that cover your stomach then I would maybe go for it but if not go for a dress with thicker more flattering material. I was so hopeful after so many positive reviews but must disagree. I'm 5'7" 130 lbs, 34C, athletic/curvy. uncomfortably unflattering. pass on this one.

Runs Large In Bust

This dress was not made for small chested gals! It runs very large in the chest, even with a strapless bra on, it was still too big. I followed the measurements and ordered Medium. I am a 34B. I will be returning it.

Classic

This is such a classic dress, you can't go wrong with it. It fits true to size, I normally wear a size Small (5'6", 36C, 26/27 waist) and I ordered a size small and it's perfect for my measurments. It really hugs the curves but hides any imperfections simultaniously. The only reason i gave it 4 stares instead of 5 is that the peaks on the top of the dress have a tendency to get a little flimsy, nothing a little starch and an iron won't fix but if they don't stay standing up it does make the dress look a bit off. overall, and especially fro the price, it's a great dress that can be worn to so many events.

Great Dress, Big Bust

I normally wear a medium, but they were out of stock, so I took a gamble and bought a small instead. The dress fit great, but as many reviews state, the bust is big. I'm a 34c and could not fill it; it awkwardly bunched up. I ended up taking it to the seamstress, because I loved everything else about the dress. After taking in the bust, I absolutely LOVED everything about the dress. I can't wait to wear it again!

Return!

Not flattering at all. I bought this dress for a wedding I am attending... However, this is being returned. The length was perfect, yet this showed off imperfections and did not fit the bust either. This may work for some other body types, just not mine.

Disappointed

I wanted to love this dress, really I did. The top half fit perfectly on me. I ordered a small. I'm a 34C, 27 waist, and 37 hips. But the zipper part in the back bunched up right above my tailbone and made it look weird. If it wasn't for that, I would have definitely kept it.

Great

I am a 34B 5'7" and 158lbs. The top does run large and it does look somehow awkward but with a good push up bra it looks fine. I like the way it fits my hips and thighs will definitely wear this dress to a night out on the town.

Cheap

You get what you pay for with this dress. Looks cheap, bad fabric and there is no slit in the back for movement. It's not super thin so it hides most flaws, but it looks cheap.

Classy with cleavage

It's a nice classy looking dress. I liked how the top spiked up, it looked great. Unfortunately I'll be returning it. I didn't realize how long the dress was. I work at a night club and it was just a little too long for me!

Classy

I honestly thought I wasn't going to like it as much as the the "Rolling in the Deep V Dress" when I ordered both at the same time, but I actually loved this A LOT. It hugs me perfectly without my love handles bulging on the back as some dresses would. Instead, it actually hides them! I'm thin but have that problem area. I'm 5'4" weigh 112 lbs and I'm 32C, 25-26 inch waist, and 35 inch hips. It wasn't too big on the breast area as I thought it might be, and it sits right at the knee making it SUPER elegant. I might have to wear this for a holiday party, because it's absolutely gorgeous. My boyfriend even gave it an approval. :)
