More Beautiful in Person
Bought this dress for my mom. She will need to get it shortened as it was long. The detail of the lace on the dress is absolutely beautiful!!! Very light weight material, appears to be very classy and elegant. Dark deep blue in color and built in bra cups. There is a little belt that goes on the waist, complements well.

Definitely worth sale price!
This dress is certainly worth the current sale price ($50)! Perhaps because the less-than-stellar reviews prepared me for any disappointment, I was actually pleasantly surprised by the garment. I wear a size 28F bra and bought a size 0, which seems true to size. It's hard to tell in this picture (though much easier to see in the brown version of this dress) that there is a row of covered buttons running up the front. I didn't have any issues with the scalloped lace buckling, but I think I'll probably have to wear this with stick-on bra; the lines of the bodice don't completely cover any of my bras (on the sides and in the back), plus the straps would be visible. The bodice comes with removable and resizeable spaghetti straps. I think I might sew mine into the lace overlay to keep that more secure--I think that the lace top might have a bit of a tendency to slip off the shoulders. I'm not very tall, but the dress is about knee length--probably a little longer on me than on the model.

tried to make it work
this dress is so pretty; I ordered two trying to make it work. The first was too big and the second (8) was better but still just didn't fit right on the top. I tried every strapless bra, push up etc but it still just didn't fit me. Very sad because I liked it, very comfortable except for the top not fitting. So disappointed!

By both appearance on the site and the description, this dress was one I would have designed for myself for my daughter's daytime wedding in October. It arrived stuffed into a small plastic bag and in a wrinkled ball. To be fair, the wrinkles fell out when the dress was hung. The skirt mesh was not as structured as I expected but the top was the real issue. It has built in cups like a bathing suit but when adjusted properly to fit, the small corded straps pulled the cups up so tightly that the material rolled over on itself. Three different strapless bras did not help. I am not large in the chest but the V-neck was deep and the lace gapped. No adjustments could make it fit properly and believe me, I tried every way as I loved the silhouette and the fact that it had sleeves and would be age appropriate.
