I bought this dress for family photos. First, the colors are not what is shown on the model. It has purple and pinks in it. Second, I read the reviews before buying and I did size up one size because of the sleeve tightness expressed by other reviewers. Even though I did size up, the upper sleeves were so tight I could not get them on all of the way. Third, I am a 40D and the chest was still huge on me. With all of that being said there is a NO return policy, did not see that before ordering. So $90 down the drain for this dress that doesn’t fit.
Sizing is really weird. Arms are super tight, went up a size to accommodate and probably should of gone up 2 as I could not lift my arms up for fear of it ripping. I wear an 6-8 in pants and mediums in everything.... including all my Baltic born attire. But this dress was a Large and was still snug in my arms. I’m 5.8 and the dress was plenty long which was a plus (I’m bare foot in the photos) . Also to me, the colors looked a little different then on the model, much more purple. I uploaded a few photos for people to see in outdoor lighting.
I was so excited to get this dress. I was reading a lot of the reviews to double check on sizing and most were saying either true to the chart or a size smaller. So since I’m naturally a L/XL I went up to and XL. I couldn’t get the dress over my head. Which to me signals I needed to go up to at least a XXXL. I’m so disappointed! I’ll probably end up gifting it to my mom whose a size M. #sadface
The dress wasn’t true to color and the arms were small. The website does not make it clear that they do not accept returns for a refund, only store credit. However, there isn’t anything I want to order so I have a credit I may never use. Had I known that I couldn’t return it if it didn’t fit right I never would have ordered it.
I was hesitant about buying this dress after reading reviews about it being too tight around the shoulders/upper arms (especially since I’m broad-shouldered), but my dress size, according to the size chart, was spot-on. A little longer than I expected, but being 5’9”, it was the perfect length to wear with some heels. I’m very happy with my dress!
