Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bit dowdy. Returned as very see through material too long and rather dowdy looking, would need a big breasted wearer and much dressing up. Very disappointing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Dress-Runs Large This has a pretty bodice and drape, the fabric is more light weight and sheerer knit than you might expect from the photo, but that is not a negative. The only issue was that it runs large. I am 5'7 an 160 pounds and the x-large was huge on me. I am not reordering because the event I needed it for has passed, but I would definitely order a large or maybe even a medium. The wrap that goes around the bodice is sheer lace, pretty.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect LBD On first opening up this dress I thought the material was rather flimsy and it does require a slip. When I tried it on however I thought it looked great. It shows my figure but there is sufficient give in the material and style to suit a fuller figured woman. The sash is lovely and can be worn in different ways and possibly with different outfits. I have not worn it out yet because I ordered 2 dresses with the aim of keeping one for a very special occasion... but couldn't bring myself to send either back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lombard dress I love the material. It's what I had expected. The fit was good, but had to be shortened as I am 5'1". It looks great on me, and I am very happy with the little black dress. Thanks, Peruvian Connection!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The write up for the dress described it as fitted. It didn't look very fitted in the catalog but I followed your description and ordered a size up. The XL that I received is a bit big.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I am returning this item , much too smal The waist is at least 2 inches too high which I do not think will be better in a larger size. I liked the style and the material

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Undecided to return item I had very high expectations when ordering this dress EVEN after reading previous reviews. The dress I received is black but I ordered tights in midnight blue as suggested by another review. Planned on wearing this to a party in New York but when trying on the garment it made me feel quite busty and I felt it needed a more defined waist line rather than empire,frumpy comes to mind. However,perhaps it was the undergarments worn with first time on and I will try it on today with different items. Usually I am spot on with my purchases-this was not love at first sight.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Returned Material very thin and sheer, not at all as expected or desired. Size ran small as well. In all, disappointed in this dress.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Let down The fabric was thin and see-through. I was so hoping for a meatier fabric. The design of the dress is perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely dress The dress feels and fits quite wonderfully. I have two issues--one easily solved and one not so easily solved. The dress is so low cut, I find that I need to wear a camisole underneath, not a tragedy, but annoying. The other problem is that the material is quite itchy, at least for me. I'm not sure what I can do about that but it IS a problem I am going to have to solve. I'm not generally sensitive to wool so this was an unpleasant surprise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from stunning a simply stunning dress. Soft, elegant, one of a kind design. The color is indeed, midnight and not black. If you buy this dress, the Spanx catalog has tights/hosiery that matches the dress exactly -- midnight blue. And you will need tights because the dress is quite sheer at the bottom. Unfortunately I must return the dress. A size Large fits me, but because I am 5'10" with a 39" bust, the dress is a bit too short waisted for me. Too bad, because I love the dress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Dress, Conservative Cut I love this dress and it fits me well and is very flattering. It is a little 'older' and 'conservative' looking... I wanted it for a wedding, but felt it was more appropriate for a funeral! Although I will return it, I still think it is a lovely dress.
