      I never buy stuff w/o trying it on - but since I was looking for a dress for a wedding that specified black attire - I thought "what the heck" - I can return it to my local Dillards with not much of a hassle if it doesn't work. I am glad I took a chance. The dress is elegant and (at the same time comfortable). The design was a little out of the box for me with the portrait neckline - but it worked out well. Even though my shoulders are a bit wide - this neckline was flattering. The dress is made of a combination of stretchy material & non-stretchy - each in just the right places. I love the ruching in front and the 3/4 length stretchy sleeves with a rhinestone button on each cuff. Very few older women are comfortable with sleeveless dresses, but most wedding attire seems to have no sleeves. This did not and that was a big plus! I also love the skirt with the underskirt to make it poof out a little. And - the front is low-cut to show just the right amount of cleavage to be a little sexy, but not so you are falling out either. Just a perfect dress for someone who is a little older (60s), but who still wants to be stylish and contemporary. I would say this has a generous fit - so order true to size. The length was great for me at 5'7".... About half way between my knew & ankle. I would recommend it and can't hardly wait for my event so I can wear it.

      I usually wear 18-20W depending on the maker, but the 18W was way too big.. Had to send it back. If I was to order it again, I think I would order the 16. Very nice dress and well made. I was disappointed that I had to return it.

      I love this dress. It fit well and the only adjustment I had to make was putting a stitch in the front collar area so it would not gap open and expose my bra-breasts lol. It was comfortable and elegant. It was great for my sons wedding.

      Really pretty dress but runs large in size. Had to return it. Also the picture looks like burgundy but the color is as stated which is plum. I was hoping for burgundy color as appears in picture.

      This dress was so slimming and becoming on me. I never wear dresses but needed something special for my sons wedding. The eggplant color was beautiful and the dress was well made. Dillards always has helpful associates and great selections. Got many compliments.
