Blue Hour Dress
Impressed by the quality
I pulled the dress out of its box and instantly fell for it. It is flattering on, although it has more room than expected in the bust (I'm 34C). I can understand why some reviewers thought the middle pleats were awkward. I think a smaller size and a steam would really fix this problem. Overall, I am really satisfied with the dress, and can see this becoming a go to piece for classy events.

Gorgeous! Perfect for my garden wedding!
Slightly larger in the bust than expected. But easy to take in as the zipper is in the back if the dress. The shoulder straps are perfect length. On me the dress sits just below my knees. Colour as stated in previous reviews. The tulle underneath sits nicely and gives the skirt a bit of bounce/body. I am just in love with this purchase!!!

I bought this dress for my college graduation and I think it'll be perfect! As the other reviewer mentioned, the blue is more cornflower than cobalt but the overall effect with the dark lace is true to the picture. I got a size 0 and the fit left nothing to be desired. The only part I'm not crazy about is the tulle in the slipâ??â??it's not apparent from the picture so I was a little surprised to find it there. I find the shape a little awkward as it's only in the bottom part and I'm considering removing the tulle for a more flowing look, which shouldn't be a problem.

A pretty dress, but not as expected...
At the sale price, this is a lovely dress. It is well constructed and nicely made overall. I ordered a 6, and it fit very well in the bodice. However, the dress is lighter in color than it appears online--it is actually a cornflower shade of blue, and not the rich cobalt it appears. The lace overlay, while lovely, is more of a grey color than a true blue. The pleats at the front waist made the dress puff out around the belly unattractively. The straps have a slight "off-the-shoulder" fit, and dig in a bit uncomfortably. Also, this dress is "noisy!" There is a layer of *extremely* stiff tulle attached to the lining (which is also very scratchy) which is designed to make the dress poof out a bit, however it rustles against the lining and is a bit distracting. Overall a very pretty dress, but there were too many cons and I returned it.
