Lovely but ended up returning it!
on June 5, 2012
The dress came when expected, with an additional nice chiffon scarf.
Once I had measured myself and consulted the dress chart, I discovered I was in between two sizes and went for the larger one out of the two. Having tried the dress on arrival I would have gone for the smaller size, yet having said this it was still wearable with a padded strapless bra underneath.
This dress is very fancy and has a beautiful array of coloured stones on it; it was however very, very long - I am aware that my legs are not extremely long but I did have six inch heels on and it was still trailing on the floor by alot. If I had of kept the dress I would constantly be afraid of someone stepping on it or stepping on it myself.
I must reiterate that the dress is VERY fancy - Of course I was expecting this to an extent by the picture, but in the flesh there seems to be even more flowing fabric to it. This may be perfect for your occasion, but for the occasion I bought the dress for I felt it was just too much.
Due to the fact it didn't fit perfectly, was very long, and also that it was a bit too 'fancy' for what I wanted it for, I ended up returning it. Living in the UK and getting the dress imported from overseas I also had to pay an unexpected extra VAT fee for it to be delivered, so it ended up being more costly than I first thought it would be, and because I was not totally satisfied with the dress itself I decided not to keep it.
