Product Details

You don't have to be a bridesmaid—or even invited to a wedding—to wear this cute cocktail dress. It's made from a corded Leavers lace that we found at a sixth-generation family-owned mill in Rhode Island (it's been perfecting the art of lace making since 1859). With a streamlined silhouette, it's a polished pick for any and all RSVPs.

Alexa dress in Leavers lace

Alexa dress in Leavers lace is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice fit, good quality Fits well, flattering fit- though feels somewhat small. I'm usually a 6-8 but the 10 fits me in this dress. Someone loose on top- the side w/o the sleeve, so may need that tailored.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for large busted or short-torso women If you are large busted, then no matter what size you get, this will not fit well. I tried a 2 and a 6. The 2 was too large in all other areas, but 1/3 of my breast was BULGING out. If I moved too much, it would have def showed X rated areas. Unfortunately the bigger size just really made the right side even lower, thus an X rated show was even more likely - even with all the dress tape in the world. The rest of the dress was HUGE on me. Unfortunately I am also short-torso, so the hips came out several inches below where they should have, causing an unsightly saddle-bag look. This part probably could have been altered in the long run, but with the lace overlay, it would have been a pretty big deal alteration. The shorter length also seems to accentuate the bottom area (which may or may not be your preference). Lastly, there are 2 very long darts in the front that causes a pooch in the stomach area. Fine if you have a little pooch, but annoying if you don't.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not flattering on me This dress was a disappointment. The lace and color (navy) were beautiful and felt very well-made. However I don't think anyone with any chest at all would look good in this dress. While the 00 fit perfectly well from the waist down, it was practically indecent at the top for my (32D) chest. The one shoulder style cuts so low that it not only exposed more of my chest than was appropriate for a bridesmaid, it was also just extremely unflattering. I ordered two sizes up hoping it would provide more coverage, but in addition to requiring extensive alterations on the bottom, it's just not a well-cut dress. Essentially, this is an empire-waist dress, which made my hips look massive and my chest look awkwardly small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dress for a summer wedding I ordered this dress in the peony color to wear as a guest for a summer wedding, and I absolutely love it. The one shoulder style is fun and sexy without being over-the-top, and the color really pops. I wear a size 2 in J. Crew suit dresses, and this dress fit me true to size - curve-hugging without being clingy. As a note, I did not find the same issue with the top of the dress as other reviewers, but I have a smaller bust.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect second wedding dress Lovely lace dress for a beach wedding! I wore 2 sizes smaller than I usually do - the dress was 00 and I usually wear a 0 or 2.
