Rated 1 out of 5 by gingerbread Super Disappointing!
Bought to wear for a formal night. Bought 2 sizes and neither fit right. Fabric on "sparkling sheer eye-catching " detail is non sparkling net. Color is death shroud grey and not shiny. Looks like I'm ready to be burried by people who hate me rather than a fancy night out. Bought on sale so can't return. VERY UNHAPPY with purchase. NOT a quality dress and will probably just throw them both away. Buyer be ware and no wonder they are selling this dress without the option to return it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by RaggedyRabbit Satin doesn't stretch and the sizes are wonky
I bought three dresses- Size 2, 6, and 10.
A size 2 measures 33-26.5-36.5 and the lovely lady wearing it was a 32-24.5-34, so it was expected that this dress was going to be loose. And it really isn't too bad considering.
The other two dresses on the other hand...I knew it was going to be a struggle because the dress is satin- It doesn't stretch so it matters that you get the best size for you.
The size 6 measures 35-28.5-38.5....While I measure a 36-27.5-37. Now, I picked this size because my bust was too big for the size 4 (Which is sized at a 34) but I was worried that the size 8 would be way too big even though that was the appropriate size dress for my bust size. I was expecting to have to take in the waist and hips a bit but when I got the size 6 it was ginormous everywhere. The bust was supposed to be an inch too small and it was literally falling off of me. I was more than a little upset, but I have since returned it for a size 4 that I expect to fit fine.
The size 10 measures as 37.5-31-41 and the beauty I got the dress for measures 37.5-30-38. Now, I really thought of all the dresses that this was the one that was going to fit the best. But when I pulled it out of the box I didn't even bother letting her try it on. It was huge. Huge huge. Like there was no way that was going to fit her huge. Instead she tried on the size 6 I had ordered for myself that was much too big for me and it fit her like a glove. The top was a bit snug, but the dress looked great.
With that said that's a huge difference in what the measurements say fit and what actually fit.
With all of this said, I can guarantee that the sizes of the girls were correct. I sew all the time and have made them clothing that fit perfectly. And even if I was the slightest bit off, there is no justifying a size 6 fitting a girl that measures a size 10.
I have another 5 girls that I didn't get to see how the dresses fit so I'm hopeful that they didn't have as many problems as i did...
Being fair, maybe my dissatisfaction is because of how much trouble I had with this dress. It does look nice when it is finally fitted. And in Mercury it looks very elegant.

Have bought this dress in sizes 2 (marine), 4 (pink), and now 6 (gem). For the first time, we have to get this dress hemmed because it's about 6 inches too long (other sizes were perfect).

We wore these dresses for my sister's wedding in a purple color. By far the most gorgeous dress I've ever worn! The bridesmaids got so many compliments on them! We all ranged from a size 2 to a size 13 and this dress fit and complimented us all perfectly! Has a very flattering fit! I'm considering getting it altered to a shorter dress so I can wear it again. I highly recommend!
