Iris uneven hem dress
This was the 4th dress I bought for a wedding I was attending because I just kept finding problems with other dresses. I bought this dress off of the Internet and prayed it would work because it would arrive shortly before the wedding. I received it and immediately loved the silky feel of the material. After slipping it on, I knew it was going to be amazingly comfortable. The inner lining is very soft, which is especially needed for a long day of wear with a wedding, reception, a 2 hour drive there and back, and lots of dancing. Tons of compliments were given to me on my dress that night, and I felt comfortable the entire time. I also loved the bottom of the dress with the uneven hem. I was iffy about it when ordering, but it looked great on! I ordered a size 24, which might have been a tad too big, but the 22 wasn't available. However, my 42DD chest did not have a problem with it, even though the size could have gone down. I am excited for another opportunity to wear this dress, and I would highly recommend it to anyone!

A Warning for Busty Girls
When the dress arrived, I immediately thought that the picture doesn't do it justice. It has a soft gold shimmer to it that doesn't come across in the online picture. I wore it to a wedding and received compliment after compliment. It moves great, very comfortable and is perfect for warm weather wear. Now, all that being said, the one thing that kept me from giving it a 5 star rating was the neckline and bust area. I'm a 42D and ordered it in a 16 (5'1"), which fit perfectly everywhere else but the bust was snug and revealing (even with wearing my thinnest bra). An 18 would've worked for the bust but then it would've been too big everywhere else. Because the dress is lined and the type of material it's made of, pinning the crisscross so it was more closed or using good old double-sided tape was not an option. I found myself tugging at the front all night (as if by some miracle that would make the material grow and close more! HAHA!).
But all in all, I still think it was a great buy and intend on wearing it again... as soon as I can figure out a solution to the revealing bust line. :-)

I Love this Dress.
I love this dress, My Husband and kids love this dress. I wanted to step out of my box and I'm glad I did. The Picture does nothing for this dress. I'm 5'1" and very curvy and the fit is so flattering and forgiving. Thanks LB... Very happy with this buy!

My stats: 26 yrs. 5'6" 210 lbs. LB Size 18, chesty with a flat bottom and skinny legs
I purchased this dress SIZE 20 as suggested by previous reviewers (I am a chesty gal at 42DD) This dress fits me PERFECT! The chest is just right, not tight or loose, the length falls beautifully just past my knees in the center (the shortest part of the hem) and the fabric is gorgeous!
Like other reviewers have said there is a slight sheen to the fabric and the colors have more OOMPH to them, if you will, but oh so pretty! I like it better than the picture!
One thing I will warn is that I expected this to be light and airy but it is actually surprisingly heavy... Not uncomfortably so, just not what I expected. it might get a little toasty on a hot day, but I think it will be well worth it for this beautiful dress!
Also, my LB bra peeks out in the center (cleavage) area (I wear the balconette style, so plunge should work perfectly!) but this will be easily fixed, I think, with some discreet styling tape.
All in all I love this, and I think it is well worth the purchase! I recommend it to everyone!
