Rated 4 out of 5Â by Jessica_C Kind of frumpy, looks better online
The pros: lots and lots of beautiful embroidered details. Cons: NOT form fitting at all! The arms are fine, the material is a little thin though but the body is huge, the XS feels more like a medium. The neckline is a bit constricting, it keeps bothering me. There were some loose threads here and there, which is disappointing for a piece of this price. Also, it's not a rich black like the one pictured. Bottomline despite its flaws this dress has the potential to either look great or horrible on you, if you like it, try it, just beware that it most likely won't look as good as it does on the model.

This dress is pretty amazing. I love the high victorian collar and the way it just drapes beautifully. The color is ivory with strong yellow undertones. I can see it being flattering on many skin types. It is not a beige ivory but a brighter ivory.
It does run large. I ordered an XS and still had to have my seamstress take it in to make it look like it does on the model (34C, 26, 33).
Also, it is extremely delicate. I ripped the sleeve on the first day of wearing. My own fault....was playing rough with my kids. You are going to have to baby this one.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by bbolz2 Love this dress!
This dress is sooo cute! I got the black lace, and I was extremely pleased with the look of the dress. It fit me pretty much like it did the model. It was loose in the body, but that's how it's supposed to hang. I was right to size down though. I'm 5'7'' and 112 pounds, and I usually order small, but I ended up ordering the extra small and I'm glad I did. The lace is so intricate and such a beautiful pattern. I got compliments all day! The only reason why I gave it 4 stars was because it was a tad bit short to wear for work, and there was a tiny hole in the lace. I sewed up the hole easily and it looks fine now, but you'd think for the amount of money you're paying, you would get a perfect product. Other than that I absolutely adore the design and will wear this dress the rest of the summer with sandals and then into the winter with tights and boots!

I am 5'2", and a solid size 10, curvy, B-cup, etc. I bought a medium and could have probably bought a small. It does run large, but it seems like that's the nature of the dress. It's very roomy, but not appallingly so. It falls just at/above my knees, and seems slightly longer in the back.
The details are lovely. They're ivory, while the rest of the dress has more of a creamy, yellowish cast. I'm pretty sure body of the dress is crepe...it's a porous, casual kind of fabric which I couldn't discern from the photo. It's ok, but it's more boho and less elegant, up close. You may have to starch the lace at the neckline to get it to lay flat/straight.
I didn't have any issues with quality or damage or anything like that. What you see is pretty much what you get. I planned to wear this dress for my fall wedding, and will do so unless I find something I like even better.
One of the features of this dress, I think, is the short length. Unless you are very tall, it won't fall like it does on the model. Even at 5'2", I'll probably shorten the dress a bit to play up the length.

First of all I would like to state that I am very impressed with efficient delivery of the dress! I love the dress, it is so elegant and beautiful. It is exactly the same as on the picture. I am very glad I ordered size XS (I am normally S). It sits perfectly on me! The quality is perfect and I am very happy that I ordered it. The only thing I did not like is I had to pay for the VAT :-( I gave it 5 stars as it truly deserves it, I liked everything about it! Thanks a lot for the quick delivery. I might post the picture later :-)

I'm 5'5 and 116lbs and I got the xs and it fits perfectly, even a little looser than I expected. It's such a beautiful dress, even though I prefer the black I got the white because I heard it was bad luck to wear black on new years and I bought this dress for NYE. It kind of reminds me of a wedding dress but I still love it and am definitely keeping it. The lace sleeves are such a great touch to the dress and are looser than I read in other reviews which is a good thing since tight sleeves make it impossible to raise your arms. This dress is perfect for a holiday party or any fancy occasion, definitely will be purchasing it in black.

A truly special, unique statement maker. tried both the white and black. The white looked too wedding dress-ish but the black looked amazing against my olive skin. I'm a size 4 but the xs was too small in the bust (i'm 34b). got the small - perfect in bust area but too roomy in waist, so I will alter it.

Another love at first sight. You put this dress on and you feel comfortable, like dancing. On a festival. Or your wedding. Or a night out with the girls. And it would work its magic everywhere. There was enough said about the ivory colour and the rather bad quality (mine had a big hole on the sleeve upon delivery, very disappointing and definitely too pricey for that) but it's just a very cool look, with heels or boots. I've bought an XS, I'm 5'7, D cup, fits perfectly. I actually wanted to wear it on my wedding day but as we're getting married in the alps in winter it's simply too cold. But I'll swap into it for the celebration so I can eat without holding my breath and dance with the dress swinging around. It's perfect.
