3Lovely! But really only made for hourglass shape...

IF YOU HAVE AN HOURGLASS SHAPE, THIS MIGHT BE THE PERFECT DRESS FOR YOU! ... everyone else ... not so much. The dress itself is really lovely. I can't stress that enough. It truly is gorgeous, but it just didn't seem to fit right and because of the cut, a poor fit makes it look frumpy and matronly.

I initially bought this to wear to church. It's nice and modest. The fishtail hem is adorable! The fabric is very thick and heavy making this a great fall or winter dress (definitely not summer friendly where I live). That being said, I'm glad I didn't pay full price for this or I would have been very disappointed.

For reference, I'm 5'4 & an apple shape. The hemline is lower than I expected so short ladies beware. The waist also falls a couple inches lower than it should on my frame. My waist and bust measurements are between sizes so I went ahead and ordered a size up (as recommended). No bueno. Too big in all the wrong places.

Simply put, the waist fit fine but the rest of the dress is too baggy. Extra room in the hips (but doable because of the flair). HUGE in the chest ... a ton of extra fabric around the shoulders which pucker like an 80's prom dress (the picture doesn't even do it justice). Ordinarily, most dresses tend to be tight in the shoulders & chest so I was surprised to see how much extra fabric there was.

If I lived in the UK I would probably exchange it for something else, but since I'm in the US, it would cost me more than to just keep it.

In order for it to sit properly, I'd have to get the darts taken in and the waist raised a hair. Worth a try if your measurements are "perfect" but I wouldn't recommend it for other apples.

    3Beautiful, but very tight in hips!

    I would say if your hips are in between sizes, I recommended sizing up.
