I tried this on as a sample dress along with the Misha & Natasha. I ordered my samples in early February, received them about a week and a half later & had a week to try them on. Originally ordering multiple samples at the same time was tough availability wise. One item would be available in my size but the other 2 not, then another item becomes available but the first one is gone ect. Had to order 2 in one order then the last one in a separate order. Because of this they arrived at different times so it would have been hard to try them on together to compare styles. Azazie was great in giving me a few days extension on my first order. This dress was my 2nd favorite of the 3 mentioned above.
Pros: adjustable neck tie similar to a bikini top, leg slit adds some pizazz, pockets! Size 10 is true to size, no areas felt too large or tight. If between sizes go by the waist 1st & bust 2nd. Hip measurements don't matter much with the flowing skirt material. I would've been an 6 by bust, 8 by waist & like a 14 by hip guidelines. A10 fit well enough for sample purposes (though was large in the bust on my small chest) but I will do custom when it is time to order.
Cons: the sweetheart neckline is cute but doesn't lie flat due to the pleating material, would require double sided tape. The waistband appears like it would be slimming, but it is too high up which makes the torso appear shorter than it is & allows for lower belly pooch sticking out below. The leg slit is cut rather high but can always be closed or lowered in alterations. Love the pockets but the added material makes the hips appear larger than they are as well. Was hoping this dress would be more flattering on a mid-size pear shape but would look better on slimmer girls or women with more exaggerated curves/bust.
