Rated 3 out of 5 by Franky26 These dresses DO NOT run large. The chest area was much too small for some of my bustier bridesmaids. The bottom skirt fit well, but most of my ladies could not get the top to zip over their chest. The top portion of the dress seems to run small, as one of the girls who fits comfortably into any other size 8 dress could not even fit into the size 10 of this dress.

Rated 2 out of 5 by TXAmber Poor fabric choice
I really loved this dress online and couldn't wait to try it on. Unfortunately, it was too big and the fabric was all wrong. I am a size 4, and the size 2 was too big. This fabric is pretty stiff, wrinkles easily, and attracts lint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eribibble GREAT dress
This dress (in marine) looked great on all three of my bridesmaids, who had different body types ranging from waifish to very busty (though the two less busty bridesmaids--one very skinny, one a little bigger--both had to have the straps taken in a little). The sateen fabric makes it a much more versatile dress than many of the other options, which I liked, because I really wanted my girls to be able to wear the dresses again. While not suited to the most formal of weddings, these were perfect for ours (big churchy event, the men wore suits, not tuxes), and often when looking back at our photos I think or comment on how great the bridesmaids look.

Rated 2 out of 5 by BustyWoman Disappointing
This dress does not work for me at all. As a busty woman, I had to choose between letting the dress sit at my natural waist & showing about 2 inches of cleavage or shortening the sleeves and making it an empire waist dress (which isn't flattering).
My bride's dress is made out of chiffon, so I had few options, since satin seemed too formal to coordinate, and I didn't want to wear the same fabric. Unfortunately this fabric wrinkles like crazy. Also, the picture makes it seem like the fabric has movement, but it doesn't flow at all; it just has awkward and asymmetrical pleats.
For the price, the dress is seriously disappointing. The v-neck is usually the best bet for my kind of figure, and it's bewildering to see that someone made a dress in this cut for women with small busts.
