When I looked at the reviews, I was fairly concerned about the color of the dress, but decided to take the chance and turns out the model photo colors are much more accurate than most of the photos from other people. That's a first! I do agree that the shoulders are a bit tight although not unbearably so (I just have to be a little careful when taking off the dress), but this dress is SO SO lovely! I had to get it hemmed 4-5" as I am just short of 5'4", but personally I've been looking for a lovely floral dress forever and this one is the one!
I really love this dress! The colors are beautiful and it worked perfectly for our maternity photos. The only complaints I would give is that the arms are oddly very tight, and the fabric is slightly see-through. I sized up for my bump, and while the rest of the dress was quite loose, it was almost impossible to get off by myself because the arms were tight. My husband had to assist me! The fabric is also slightly see through. I wore **** colored undergarments and that took care of the issue, but for the price point, I would not expect this dress to be see-through at all! Overall though, I love the dress and will likely wear it for my baby shower in a couple of weeks.
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.
