Rated 5 out of 5Â by BlushPink Beautiful, Flattering Evening Gown
This dress is probably the most flattering dress I've had from any of LC's collections. It is a gorgeous gown, a sort of golden nude dress with a wine lace overlay--pictures do not do it justice. Online I had dismissed it when by chance I found someone had returned one at a local store and tried it on. It was perfect. It has a lovely flow when you walk (similar to the white maxi skirt from last year's runway collection) and a comfortably fitted bodice with just the right tucks and stitches in the bodice to flatter the chest. I am a DD, so finding something that both fits and flatters is a glorious thing in itself, but this neckline takes the cake. The straps adjust (a bit rougher than some other dresses, because of the lace) but it is no reason not to keep it.
In sizing, I got a size 8. I take a 4 (xs-s) in bottoms that are not high-waisted, and in most dresses that have a fabric (in some cases I hop to a 6 to fit the chest). I wear 8 with any of LC's pieces with a waist (I'm about 27-27 1/2"). I am 5' 5" and it just reached the floor on me.
Overall, a highly recommended buy. One of my favorite dresses in my closet, a perfect evening gown.
