Uneven hem dress
I love this dress. And by "love," I mean "LOVE." This dress fits my shape perfectly - the empire waist elongates my already high-waisted nature and makes me look longer and leaner than I actually am. It drapes beautifully, twirls wonderfully, and generally makes me feel incredibly feminine & sexy. :) Even our 10 y/o comments on how beautiful I look when I wear it, and my husband loves it on me! :)
So why "nearly perfect"? I'm slightly uncomfortable with how plunging this dress is. I've put in two tiny stitches to make the dress slightly more modest, and now it's perfect. I just want to make sure what is my husband's (i.e., my body) stays his - and no one else gets a sneak-peek. :) But that's me - and it might not bother anyone else.
This is one of those rare purchases where I don't regret it even one iota - and I wish this was in more colours. Because I could use more dresses that make me look THIS good. :)

Size up for apple-shaped
I really like this dress. The twisty bra straps do present a slight bra coverage issue that can be solved by wearing a solid black Cacique plunge bra (the old ones, not the ones they have out now that have beige on the black lace). The material can be a little bit clingy and the empire waist seemed just slightly snug on my apple shape, so I went up a size - solved the problem! Now the dress flows beautifully and doesn't cling. Very flattering! Washed in a lingerie bag on delicate, then hung to dry... came out perfect. Happy with purchase! Just remember, if you try it on and the material seems too clingy, just try on the next size up. It makes all the difference!

Not for me!
I wanted to love this dress.
How the dress falls in the front was not flattering at all on me, made me look pregnant.
I am leery of the high-low/handkerchief hems because the short parts are sometimes showing everything. This showed to high on my legs for me, it was just above the knee but the longer points were perfect.
The fabric was great, jersey knit is great. The twist neckline was a cute detail. Covered me up but not flatter me well.
