Only Hearts began as a boutique lingerie design house in 1978. Soon after, founder Helena Stuart trademarked her style as inner-outerwear™. The brand has evolved into a versatile range of delicate pieces that walk the fine line between nightwear and street wear. All Only Hearts clothes are designed and made in the garment district in Manhattan.
My dress loses stars because of the sewing. The mesh part on the top of the dress is larger on one side of the v-neck than the other. The straps also don't seem like they can support the weight of the rest of the dress well (because the mesh is extremely stretchy). I am 5'2" 112 lbs and ordered the XS. Usually FP XS are still large on me, but this was tight. I still like the dress and will exchange it. I got the "sand" color and it is true to the photos. This length is great for me (no hemming required, low heels).Also, I am not busty, but there is little way to wear a bra because of the low-cut back and front. I don't like the way my breasts look without one since it is very tight. I am still trying to figure that out…
This is a beautiful, beautiful dress. Grab one before they are gone. You could choose your regular size, or size down (which is what I did for a fitted look.) The silver/blue is very flattering on fair/blonde color combos (and probably others.) Pretty AND comfortable design.
great on this short curvy girl!
As another reviewer said this dress would look great on a short curvy girl, and that's me! Love the black. Just need to get the straps shortened a bit but otherwise perfect. A wonderful winter basic to dress up or down. Very flattering. I'm between a size 8 and 10 and the large is perfect on me .
I am 5'9 and approx 135 lbs. I ordered the dress in small and its fits beautifully. The slit is a bit higher than i would like, but not high enough to make me return it. The rose blue is really pretty and looks as shown in the picture.
Not meant to be skin tight
I ordered this velvet slip and also the Velvet Lengths Maxi Slip. I thought this one was much more flattering because the seam goes down the middle and it also just drapes better. I did not find this too loose in the waist. (32C 26 33). It is meant to drape and not be any sort of bodycon dress. I usually am an XS but I ordered a S based on the dimensions and that was the right decision. The only thing that I was unhappy about was the color. I ordered the red gold and it ended up being more of a cranberry color which I think might wash me out a bit. I reordered in the Navy.
Not as flattering on
I have to agree with the previous review with it being too loose in the waist, it is not as flattering on. I expected it to be more fitted around both the waist and butt to show off a more hour-glass figure and for a night out. It also looks too much like lingere with the sheer straps I think. I was so excited for this but had to return it :(
Nice Quality, but too loose
The quality and fabric of this dress is lovely- and it has stretch to it but it is way too loose in the waist area- not flattering. I would recommend this dress for a short, curvy build as the slit in the front goes up to high for anyone taller than 5'6.
