Rated 2 out of 5 by notquitemonroe Unlined slip dress
I was very disappointed in the quality of this dress. No liner or shaping whatsoever. You'd either need to be fairly thin naturally, or wear significant foundation garments to avoid looking like a sausage roll. The sheen on the fabric is pretty, but not complimentary. I think I gained 5-10 lbs in my selfie photos wearing it. Great idea. Poorly executed. It was forgiving in the hips and had a nice kick out of crenoline in the skirt.

This is a very beautiful dress. The material is incredibly nice. It is a little shiny and has a pattern but very tasteful and classy, not overdoing it at all. The dress looks much better in person and I found it very flattering. The sizing was a bit different from expected. I am 5'6 and 150lbs and I ended up fitting into size 6 (usually it is 10 or 8) and the dress was too long with flat shoes but should be ok with heels. The dress is a bit unforgiving in the belly area but very flattering below the waist (butt and thighs are slimmed a bit). It would probably be a good idea to wear some shapewear.
The dress seems to be very well made and the material feels good. There is a rubberized area around the bust to prevent the dress from sliding down. Another nice thing about this dress is that the back is not cut too low which makes it easier to find a suitable bra.
This would make a wonderful wedding dress, particularly for an outdoor wedding. I think it is beautiful by itself but it would probably go well with a bridal sash.
Though it is not advertised as a wedding dress I don't think I would use it for anything else because of the color.

I absolutely loved the style of the dress, it was a little longer than I expected but it worked out ok with heels.

The top part of the dress does not give support and the elastic part hangs forward. The fit is pretty much true to size though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ClearanceChic Different but Beautiful and Worth It
You cannot beat this price! Shipping was timely and customer service was friendly. I am 5'5" and the size 2 dress is extremely long, even with heels; not just the train in back, but also in front. I will have to get the length altered but I am not worried about it. The tummy and rear regions have a good fit. While the fit in the bust looks fine and the neckline is flattering, the plastic-like material along the top, inside of the gown meant to hold the dress up is not enough. The fabric isn't heavy, necessarily. It's actually a stretch-satin and is quite thin, but there is just so much of it. I will probably add cap sleeves to help keep the dress up. In the pictures, it is impossible to see the light embossing that the satin fabric has; it is a small, floral pattern on all of the dress. I wasn't expecting this, but it doesn't take away from the beauty of the dress. That being said, I don't know if it adds anything, either. The garment also looks white in the picture, but it is definitely an ivory, as the description states. Overall, this is a lovely, sleek and simple dress with a stylish train that adds a bit of flare. It is my blank canvas and with the money I saved, I plan to alter and accessorize it just how I want!
