Very Flattering Fit
When I ordered this dress I wasn't too sure I would really like it all that much. When I received it, I was first impressed by the material. It does not have a cheap feel to it, it feels substantial, without feeling "heavy." And it is fully lined, which is really very nice.
But the love came when I put it on. The fit is simply fabulous! The pictures of models really don't do this dress all that much justice, as this dress just feels so nice on. The small elastic band sits just slightly above the natual waist, which is very flattering, and the top blouses over, which - again - is flattering and comfortable. The neckline, unlike a lot of LB dresses, does not have an extraordinary low-cut neckline. This neckline can be appropriate for work (though I don't normally wear maxi dresses to where I work), religious functions, or events where a more modest attire is welcome. No need to wear a cami underneath!
The skirt of the dress is not overly full, without being tight and clingy. And - surprise! - it covers all the bumps and bulges perfectly. The skirt just hangs beautifully. I was concerned about the length, as I'm 5'5", and I don't always like to wear 3" or 4" heels. This dress does skim the floor on me, so a sandal with a kitten heel would be enough, which I'm fine with.
The straps are a bit thin, but wearing a bra with straps can be done and they would probably blend in. I do not wear sleeveless anything without some sort of shrug, so that wouldn't bother me. However, these straps may be a little too thin for those gals who aren't bothered wearing sleeveless tops. A strapless bra or bra with clear straps might be needed.
I was very pleasant surprised by this dress! I thought I might either bring this one back, or wear it very occasionally. I do believe this might be my "go to" dress!

This dress is absolutely gorgeous! I am someone who does not like how I look in almost everything but when I tried on this dress in the store, I fell in love with it. I am normally a size 18 in pants so I was surprised when I was able to get this dress in a 14/16. It is a bit long, so if you're on the shorter side (like me, I am 5'4"), you need to wear with heels. I definitely recommend this dress!

I ordered this dress online and I was so excited when I got it. Didn't like it at all. The dress was a little snug so I don't think it's true to size. The flowers are way to big that it's not flattering at all and the band comes right below my chest not at the waist and my girls look huge. Really disappointed and now I have to pay to return it. The length was perfect and the liner under in wonderful that you do not need a slip but the dress was a disappointment.
