Rated 4 out of 5 by from "floaty vicose" = summer dress I wish the description of the fabric had been less poetic and more informative. I love the styling of this dress but the fabric is too light weight to wear until the summer, months away from February. Therefore, I unfortunately decided to return it. Wish it came in a different fabric.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful fabric, color and fit I am 5'9" 168#, 36C. I purchased this for a spring ourdoor wedding. The dress looks amazing. I don't agree with the previous reviewer that the dress is short waisted and I am taller than she is. The dress is not short waisted on me and the length is a great ankle skimmer. I received many compliments and the asymmetrical front wrap is just sexy enough, but not too. Keep in mind that this is a true wrap dress, so the front needs a single small safety pin to keep it from gaping open. I wore a cream v-neck cami with lace trim and a short cream slip. They were perfect. A small word of warning, be aware that if a strong wind comes up you will be holding the front wrap closed. That is the only reason I did not give this dress 5 stars. I will wear it again. Looks good with my cream leather moto or my denim jackets.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good and bad I ordered this in a size 10, and don't think I'd want to go any bigger because it wraps perfectly but there's a bigger gap where it crosses over at the bust on me than shown in the photo. I'm a 34DDD, so I fill the front in a good way, but the fit is more of an empire where the bodice crosses and ties at the waist. On me, the tie is higher than at my waist and I'm very short-waisted. The fabric is heavenly. Lightweight, slightly sheer so you'll likely want to wear a slip. I also ordered the recommended slip in peach, but the color is horrible on me. I almost decided to return the dress but tried it on again with a white cotton slip and liked the look much better. The white is a much crisper look and enhances the colors in the dress. So the silky slip is going back. I have silver hair and the color of the dress is not as complimentary as I'd hoped, but the white slip makes a huge difference in the look and makes it doable for my coloring. I was concerned about the length because I'm only 5'1" but it's doable because it barely skims the floor where it's longer in the back and works with a low heel or flat sandal. The sleeve length is perfect. This one is definitely worth a try!
