Worth the extra money

This is a bit more than I would typically spend on Lulus but it's worth it! Very beautiful and comfy. Great resort dress.

Love it!

Love the dress, it fits nicely on the body and no need for a bra , WHICH I LOVE !!! A little top heavy because of the extra fabric for the straps , only thing I wish it that the dress package came with instructions on how to wrap the dress in different styles.

Best maxi

Very happy with purchase! I usually order medium in lulus dresses but ordered a small and am glad I did. (5ft5, 130lb, 32d) fits perfect! Am looking forward to wearing all the different ways. Feels heavenly on. Not too heavy as other comments mentioned (considering the amount of material). Length is perfect or me, but if need to hem-just a snip is needed as no hem on bottom

This dress is very flattering and comfortable. Don't hesitate to look up ideas on how to tie it up! Can be so many different looks. Good quality fabric and washes up nice. Runs big but flows nicely!

Beautiful!

This dress is so beautiful and I got so many compliments on it! There are a ton of different ways to wear it which is great because it makes it like a new dress every time. Also, I'm very busty and I was worried about wearing this in a way to cover my strapless bra in the back, but I watched several youtube videos and found several ways to wear it, especially with the straps on the back side instead of the front. It's a little pricey, but so worth it!

Amazing!

This dress is AMAZING. I want Lulu's to release it in a million colors, and I will snap them all up. I'm tall, 5'11, so the length of maxi dresses is always an issue for me. This dress falls all the way to the group, super comfy, and looks great. Very flattering!

OMG

I'm obsessed. OBSESSED. This dress is incredible, and the fabric is very comfortable and high quality. I wore it out for a friend's birthday and strangers kept coming up to me to say how much they loved it. However, it does run VERY long. I'm 5'8 and with flats it swept the floor.

Showstopper

I came across this dress completely by accident, on an external website that listed it as a favorite summer item. I had been looking for a striped maxi for quite some time but none had been what I was looking for. After reading the reviews of this dress I decided I should take my chances and order. (Being from Canada I am always nervous to buy because shipping is always so darn high). Anyways, I ordered a small (risky, but I didn't want it to be too long). It fits BEAUTIFULLY. I am 5'5", 160 lbs... Curvy with some booty.... This dress makes me look very tall and slender. The material is wonderful and hangs nice / flows so beautifully when I walk. I work in retail and am constantly asked where I got it. One crazy lady couldn't stop making me spin in circles whilst calling me "faaaabulous... just faaaaabulous". ANYWAYS---- Real show stopper. If you're thinking about getting this dress DO IT. You won't regret it! Also don't worry about it being too long... There is no hem, if you can cut really straight you can shorten it.

Compare and you will still buy this!

If you're an avid price negotiator like I am, you know there is another contender for the infinity maxi dress that costs about $285. I found it on another clothing website for $125 and on an OTHER day-by-day deal website for $78. This, obviously, is the cheapest and a little less dressy which is exactly what I needed. I ordered a medium, I'm 5'8", 140 pounds and a size 34B and it fits pretty well. The length is fine, can't wear too high of heels and I would have liked a little smaller but I should probably wait till I see how I feel after I'm out and stuff my face for dinner;) The only problem is that this dress IS NOT HEMMED. All of the edges are open and ready to come apart. It definitely makes me a little nervous.

Everything and More

Absolutely wonderful dress! I'm a size 8 and probably could have gotten a medium instead of a large because it runs just a little on the larger side. It's long and elegant and has so many styles! Why aren't there more dresses like this? I absolutely love it. At 5'3, it a little on the long side for me but that's nothing a cute pair of shoes can't cure. Buy this dress and you will love it's beautiful material and sleek look just as I did.

CUTE AND COMFY

LOVE THIS DRESS! My only gripe im not creative so I find it hard to figure out the ways to wear it like the model. Wish it came with a booklet on how to use the straps. Other than that dont hesitate to buy! Its comfy can be turned into a sexy night dress or a casual day dress.

A Nice Dress

This is a very beautiful dress, but it is super long. I am 5'3 and even with heels this dress is long. It already is long on the model and she looks tall, so beware short girls! Also, I purchased a medium and I felt that it was too big. Try going a size smaller. This dress would look nice on tall girls with a nice pair of wedges. Also, I couldn't really understand how to wrap the dress around my upper portion like some of the pictures show. Sadly, I had to return.

Just ok

This dress is nice and it fits well but it is super heavy. Its not too difficult to find ways to tie it, you just have to use a little imagination. Becuase of the color and pattern almost any way that you tie looks cute but at the end of the day once its tied it just looks like any other stripped maxi dress. The selling point is the versatility but i still think its overpriced.

NEEDS HANDBOOK

I so wanted to love this dress but without a guidebook it's almost impossible to figure out how to get the different looks. It's also quite heavy on your body. If you are willing to spend a lot of time figuring out how to adjust the straps then go for it. I don't have the patience.

Nice dress

This is a great dress but I wish it had a little less material up top. I thought it was super easy to Tie and tried all different ways . Looks cute criss cross and halter but sadly I had to return it . More beachy summer look wasn't dressy enough for a wedding. I still give the dress good reviews cause its made well and material is great I just had no use for it I needed something more dressy. Also I'm 5 3 length was perfect when trying on. Good dress but returned:)

Return.

I ordered a medium per the review suggestions even though I am usually a size small and the medium was too big. I also felt like the dress was very heavy. I was able to wrap the dress but not as good as it looked in the photos. This dress needs some instructions on how to wrap properly. I will say the the fabric looks very nice and I love the stripes but because of the heaviness of the dress and with how difficult it was to put on, I had to return.
