Rated 2 out of 5 by Cara Makes my breasts look very lopsided
I was really excited about this dress because my name is also Cara, and I liked the sleeve. But when I put it on, I was horrified to discover it was very unflattering. The shirring at the top goes diagonally over one breast, and vertically over the other which, particularly in photos, made my breasts look EXTREMELY lopsided.
Now, to be honest: I'm a 5'3", 185 lb, 38D woman, so maybe on a smaller woman, it'd be better. But I'm a very average size - a bit plump, but no bigger than Mindy Kaling. So there are plenty of women out there to whom this dress will give lopsided breasts.
Additionally, the fabric on the chest is not sewn together, so there is some awkward gapping in the front to add to the affect. It's poorly thought out dress. I'm trying to swap it out for something more flattering. Keeping my fingers crossed. Otherwise, not only will I be the fattest bridesmaid at my friend's wedding, and I will also look the worst. But I suppose there's always gotta be one of those.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NoVaJAB Classic with a twist
This was a very comfortable and classy dress. I was pleasantly surprised that the Dark Cove was lighter than in the pictures and closer to a Royal Blue. I wear size 2 and found it fit true to size and I think it is very versatile for all body types. The only reason I gave it a 4 out of 5 stars was because I would have preferred a petite size (which was not available) so that it would have a more tailored fit for my 5' frame. However, overall it was a great dress and I have contemplated buying it in another color as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Iluvtom Fun formal dress!
The dress runs true to size measurements. Gorgeous color. Love the chiffon fabric. The bust is supportive and flattering because it is like a bustier with cords shaping the body. Light weight dress. Well made

Just perfect for my brother's Napa Valley wedding. The color was vibrant and bright, the fit was spot on. Beautiful dress!

Rated 2 out of 5 by KittyKitty Not as flattering in person
This dress is a beautiful fabric but, very delicate! That is the only reason I marked it down one star for quality. It's well sewn and seems very comfortable. Of course I'm returning it so I can't say for how long.
The style is what's wrong for me. I'm breast feeding right now so had to go up to a size 6 rather than my usual 4. It looked like my breast was extra fat popping out under my armpit. It just added like ten pounds to my figure. Maybe it would look better on those with less of a chest.
