Rated 2 out of 5 by myheartisyours Unflattering boob area and waistline
I'm more of a size 10 than 12 but since my size can occasionally vary (depending on the dress) I'll say it's true to size.
Unfortunately, I have to agree with the other ladies complaining about the breast area. All of the bridesmaids had the same problem, regardless of their cup size. We tried with and without a strapless bra and it didn't help with the weird bubbles of fabric on the front and back of the dress. We tried steaming as well. No luck. We all had a lumpy boob area.
The empire waistline isn't what makes it unflattering. It actually would work well for many ladies if it didn't have sort of a pleated/ruched empire waistline, front AND back. It made us all look pregnant and sort of round, front and back (not in a good way). If it didn't have those pleats and just fell straight, the waistline would look so much better. Luckily, you couldn't tell looking straight ahead. Taking pictures along from a side angle was the problem.
The good thing was that we all looked equally lumpy and pregnant when walking together. Also, the bride was so gorgeous no one'd dare look elsewhere! :)
I WOULD recommend this dress to a pregnant woman, though! It had lots of tummy room for a baby bump!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Lynn12 Was only ok AFTER a lot of adjustments
I wore this dress in the Marine color as a bridesmaid in my friends wedding. It was super cute and fun in the picture - exactly what she wanted. But when it came I was very disappointed. Even though I ordered according to the measurements, it was a full size to big. And then even when pulled tight and pinned, it was very unflattering in the waist and bust. I was able to find a great seamstress who managed to make it fit better, and fixed the waist so the bust was slightly better. We then found some cute elastic belts that we wore at the natural waist to add some shape, which really helped.
Long story short, this can be a good dress but you have to put some work into it. Still not the nicest dress I have ever worn, but the bride was happy and pictures turned out great, so that's all that matters!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Terrebo Poor quality
I was very unimpressed with this dress. The fabric throughout the chest are was very thick and crinkly. It was not flattering at all and made the chest area poke out in random places. The one arm hole was too small as well and made movement difficult. I ordered this dress in a size 4 and it fit everywhere else just fine. The bride as decided to go with a different dress as ALL of us bridesmaids had these same problems! The $9.50 charge to mail the return back was the cherry on top. Unfortunately the customer is responsible for the charges to return the items.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bobbieap Great dress
Ordered this dress in the malibu color for my bridal party. It was a great choice considering i had a wide variety of heights and sizes to accommodate i even had one bridesmaid pregnant. This dress fitted and looked amazing on each and everyone of them . They were comfortable and kept their dresses on the whole evening. Most had to have the shoulder strap adjusted, but you normally have to make minor adjustments with any dress you buy so that was not a big deal at all to us. Everyone loved these dresses and i would recommend them to anyone.
