I got a lot of compliments wearing this dress! I had to hem the end for about 2 inches but it was expected. Im 53, 120lbs and bought small. The fit is quite loose on the top around the waist but its not too bad. It definitely looks better than $40!
I just received my gown today. I must say I was quite surprised with the packaging of the dress. It came in a 14 x 9 inch box. I guess I expected a bigger box, since it's a gown. I opened the box and the dress was in a zippered 9 x 8 inch bag. I immediately thought the worst. I am so glad I was wrong. The dress is great quality. The only thing I don't like is how you tie the string for the halter. I didn't realize how the string is tied, I guess I thought it was all zippered. So, if you are looking for a dress that zips up completely, this is not it. The length is to long for me even with heels, as I am 5.4 in height. I will have to have to go get it hemmed. Also, I had to relook at picture of dress here on site, because a picture does not come with the dress, so I could see how the string should be tied. Another thing, if you are looking for pure white i color, this is not it. It's almost ivory. Not a pure white. My wife loves the dress. so I am keeping.
I read every review posted about this dress and viewed photos to get a better idea of fit. I am absolutely in love with the color and fit of this gown. It was an amazing price for the quality. I am wearing this for a wedding next month and it will be perfect. The top hugs you beautifully and then it flows down to cover any bulge in the stomach or hips. The light gold accent in the top piece of the dress is gorgeous and subtle. I may even purchase this dress in another color and be covered for wedding season!
