Brocade surplice dress
Super pretty dress! Some non-deal breaking problem
First off, I LOVED this dress. The material is absolutely gorgeous, and it's fully lined and very good quality. You feel like a movie star in it!
It fits pretty true to size for a fabric that is so structured (I ordered a size up from my jean size, which is typical for non stretch tops/pants for me).
Now for my problems:
It is VERY low cut. Not a problem if you don't mind all of your cleavage showing (and I mean all) or if you have a nice cami to wear under (I'm not a fan of that look). I bought a plunge bra and some fashion tape and all was well, but it was very revealing. If you're ok with the plunge then this is a great dress!
Next problem that was more frustrating, the lining on the neckline would show from under the fabric of the dress. I THINK this is because it was very fitted on my bust, and the lining is more stretching where as the dress fabric is not, but it's possible that this would be a problem still if it was looser on others.
Still a great dress however!

So cute, but too low cut
I had this shipped to my local LB store. I tried it on there and unfortunately had to return it right away because it was just too low cut. I am the type who loves to show off some cleavage (I figure that's the one benefit of being a bigger girl). I needed this for my military officer husband's Xmas party and as the CO's wife, it just was way inappropriate. Other than that the fit was cute and the fabric was really pretty. I was sad to have to return it!

This dress is stunning! I received so many compliments. I gave the fit 4 stars only because the top is a little loose and the v-neck a little wide for MY taste. I was surprised by the fit of the top half since I have a large bust (DDD). However, this is nothing a little fashion tape won't fix. Love love love this dress!
