I needed a dress for a elegant wedding, this dress did NOT disappoint. It was a little long even with heels but got it Hemmed with no problem. I wear size 12-14 and got a XL. Was a little big but not to noticeable. Will buy again!
Ordered this in XL based on a previous purchase. Was very excited for this dress based on the color and the pictures. The neck line is very low cut and not much coverage, I’d expect a bit more coverage for this size. The dress technically fit, but the waist line was right under the bust instead of at the natural waist, which was very unflattering on my body type. Overall this dress was very unflattering on me unfortunately. I will say the color is nice at least.
I have been searching high and low for an emerald green dress in stock for my engagement photos at the end of the month. This dress was my second choice (Lydia in hunter green was my first but it was sold out when I ordered). I was nervous reading past reviews, but I decided to take a risk as this was my first Baltic Born purchase. The color is exactly what I wanted! It compliments my skin tone and brings out my green eyes. I was torn between ordering a size S or M and I read some reviews that recommended sizing down and I’m glad I did. I would’ve been drowning in the M. For reference, I am 5’5” and weigh 155lbs 34C though I do have a fairly small waist. The length was fine for me as I plan to wear a short wedge with the dress. But I am so confused about the sizing at the top...I am a 34C and padded my bra with socks as an experiment and STILL I was unable to completely fill the top out as it’s designed. The underarm area is a bit snug, but wasn’t uncomfortable for me. I think another reviewer mentioned the sleeves being tight, but I think they were referencing the underarms as the sleeves themselves had plenty of room. There is a bit of extra fabric around the waist also which I believe someone mentioned. I took it to get tailored as I want it to be perfect for my engagement pictures and the alterations were about $70. Add in the rush shipping for $25 and I’m spending quite a bit of money on this dress. But it was the color and style I wanted so I think it was worth it. Overall, I would still purchase it again and maybe not do rush shipping as it came pretty quickly and probably would have gotten here in time for my photos and alterations with standard shipping. I think this dress would be perfect for a momma to be and I will definitely be saving mine for when my time comes I will try and edit to add photos of how it came out after alterations and in my engagement photos!
I love the dress but the strap was missing. They did offer me a percentage off or I could ship it back, but wouldn’t send me a new strap. I didn’t ship back just because I needed it for upcoming pictures.
This dress had so much potential, but the fit is just horrible. I knew I couldn’t get my money back if it didn’t fit, but I ordered anyway because I thought they couldn’t mess this dress up. The shoulders and armpits are SO tight I could hardly get it on and off. I wish the waist was just a tie and not elastic. The way the fabric comes out under the waistband is so unflattering. It makes you look a lot wider than you are. Also while the top was so tight in the arms and shoulders the chest was gaping open - so even if I sized up the top wouldn’t fit. I had high hopes for this dress and I really couldn’t believe how bad it was.
