Rated 5 out of 5 by AmyPoehler from LOOOOOVE IT! I needed a dress to wear to a wedding. I was going to be 11 weeks post partum with my second baby at the wedding and was dreading having to go dress shopping. I was still losing pregnancy weight and baby belly pooch was still there (took 9 months to put on, going to take that long to come off) I ordered online and held my breath until it was delivered and I was able to try it on. Oh my lord! This is the most comfortable dress I've EVER worn. I am 5'6 and a size 18 so I ordered the size 2 in Black. I consider myself to have really chubby arms and often have a hard time getting sleeves in formal wear and dresses to fit comfortably- this was NOT an issue for me in the dress what-so-ever, the lace has stretch to it. I've seen several ladies reviews stating that the dress was not flattering on them or that the cummerbund didn't sit in the correct spot on their body. This was not the case for me in this dress. I have a long torso and do have a belly/pooch so I typically try to order swim suits and shirts in long length when I can. I think the thing I love the most was the illusion mesh in the bust. You can wear the rattiest, grandma bra you own under this dress and no one would have any clue because the straps are hidden. It's absolutely genius, especially given the fact that many of us plus size gals have large or giant busts that are supported by sturdy bras with wider straps. I felt very feminine and classy in this dress. I'm so glad LB has decided to carry such lovely, classy looking dresses that aren't animal pattern or some crazy asymmetrical cut made from highly flammable "clubbin'" fabrics for hookers. I would say if you are on the fence about whether this will fit your shape or not, it's totally worth buying to try on, you may be pleasantly surprised.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VtaBarbie from Love the Dress I don't normally buy clothes online that I haven't tried on before. But I have a wedding to attend and needed a dress. This new Kiyonna line is great. Very feminine and classic. I was sure that the color that was on the computer would not be the one that I received as dyes are different the light color on the screen. But it was so close! I would buy another one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NurseNette from Big Win! I bought this dress to wear to my daughter's wedding. I was a little nervous after reading some of the reviews, so I ordered it early in case I needed to exchange it. When it showed up, I was a little skeptical of the color. The teal was much darker than I expected, but as it turns out, it was the exact color that I needed. I ordered a size smaller than I normally wear because I have recently lost almost 30 pounds. When I tried on the dress, I could not wipe the smile off of my face. It fit perfectly! The lace at the arms/seams was stretchy enough to be comfortable without feeling restricted. The "cummerbund" waist hit at just the right spot, and there's enough lace to give a "rouched" look. The dress fell just below my knees. I'm 5'4", and I ordered a size 16. One downside: The lace is very delicate, so it has a tendency to snag on things. Be careful with rings (and toddler velcro shoes :) ) I looked and felt amazing! I got compliments all night long.
