Rated 4 out of 5Â by hellokimbo hello my new favorite dress
i love this dress.. it's completely amazing and i couldn't be happier i ordered it. there is, however, one thing... it runs incredibly small in the waistband. I first fell in love with this dress on Novella Royale's website and was soooo excited when FP posted it on thier site i ordered it right away. Lucky for me, having seen it on their site, they noted that it runs small, so i sized up and got a medium. I usually wear a 26/27 pants and a 36B bra and HOLY COW.. the waistband BARELY and i mean BARELY fit around my shoulders. it' took a lot of gentle tugging, wiggling, sucking in, smooshing my girls to get into this and once on, i couldn't breathe. While the band is stretchy and elastic, it does not stretch enough. It is big enough for probably a size 24 waist with no curves at it's most stretched. I tried it higher up and lower too, and it wasn't comfortable anywhere on my waist. Needless to say, I'll have to exchange it for the Large. Sizing took away 1 star on an otherwise 5 star dress.
Everything else, though was perfect. I loved the length (long but not too long) and the slit was perfect... just high enough and the fabric is AMAZING!! I'm so happy that I won't be mad about having to switch sizes. Finger's crossed the Large isn't too big everywhere else. Once you get the sizing down --- this is an amazing little number.
Thank you NOVELLA ROYALE and FP.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Morawco Favorite dress ever!!
I wore this dress to a concert and I donât think Iâve ever gotten so many compliments in my life. People were literally pointing at me, it was awesome. I fortunately ordered the dress after reading the reviews and ordered a Medium instead of my normal small. The waist band was indeed small so I had to put my bra on after scrunching the waist past my boobs. It was incredibly comfortable and I didnât want to take it off, I considered sleeping in it because I felt so sexy. Iâm looking forward to more Novella clothing and would definitely recommend this dress.

You will LOVE this piece!!! I own the jumpsuit, the pants (two colors) and this dress. Am 5'7" and usually purchase S or XS. But from Novella i go up a size and purchase M. Since no M were available i purchased this dress as a return in size L. Yes, it is a tad big, but it just does not matter. It made the slit a little lower, the chest a little higher and the length a little longer. Looks and fits just like the photos. It does that pull thing at the hips like the photo does, but no more than the pics so it is fine.
Really a unique piece that can be worn anywhere - i plan on altering the slit so it is still a little less revealing.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by rwarden4 Amazing Dress
This dress is amazing...It fit like a glove. I am 5.2 and 103 lbs and it fit perfectly and I purchased the Small. I am also a 34 DD...The slit did keep riding up a bit but it was ok. I had everyone complimenting the dress. It will be the go to dress when I want to wear something sexy and amazing...BF really loved it so you can't ask more from an outfit.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by Eclaire disappointing
I had been eyeing this dress on the website for weeks since it was first posted and finally ordered it. Similar to what the first reviewer said, it was incredibly tight in the waist and the opening at the chest was too revealing; it didn't fully cover me, so you would have to wear a cami under it. The slit is very high, so you could only really wear it out to dinner or to a party and the length was too long for me to go up another size and have more fabric to alter. Sadly, I will be returning it.
