not flatteringThe dress is beautiful but looks better on the model. If you have curves (I ordered a size 6) the dress will hang like a tent. It does not reflect a womans curves or shape. It just hangs from the largest and widest area. That said, it is a gorgeous dress and the quality is outstanding.

BeautifulBeautiful dress, fits great except for length (I am short) so will need hemming, but quality is great. Perfect mother of the bride dress for my daughter's wedding.

Chiffon Shift DressLove this dress. I'm pregnant and my belly is growing fast so I went for size 4 to leave me room. This dress is a hit, everybody compliments it.

Too much materialThis was really pretty and the neck was beautiful. I am 5'4" snd a pretty muscular 130 lbs and the size 4 was almost a little big.I returned it because it wasn't exactly what I was looking for (not sleek enough, a lot of drapey/flowy material, a little shapeless). Again, really pretty just a little tent-like.

Hem very strange: over left breastI never review items but thought this dress was so problematic I would warn other women. The cut is very strange. The so-called sarong hem is not just a hem at the bottom. The dress has a sort of faux wrap-around style that is not visible in the photo and not described in the text. There are two layers of the pleated overlay (as well as two soft polyester slips, oddly). The top pleated poly layer ends in what seems like a random place in the chest: right over the left breast. This layer is itself doubled over, and there is no proper finishing. The fabric is just cut with a raw edge. The upshot: the front of the dress is very uneven, with varying numbers of layers, so varying thickness of fabric. Most of the front has two layers of pleated overlay; but where the fabric is doubled over the left breast (and this is a good 4-5"-wide area where it's doubled) there are three layers; then the top layer ends mid-breast, and beyond where this doubled layer ends, there is only one layer. Worse still, when you walk, the top layer flies open. Because the hem is in front and not on the side, this looks like a horrible accident. Nothing glam about it at all. And when you stop walking, the top layer does not return to its original position.I "chatted" with a Nordstrom rep. She was very gracious and spent a long time contacting stores on my behalf to see whether mine was a mistake or just a terrible design flaw. She located someone who had seen the dress and said they were all like this (and that other women had complained).I suppose if one were really desperate, she could sew down the hem so the fly-away problem no longer occurred, but of course the thickness problem would still exist. You could also remove the entire top layer, but what a hassle, for not much return. I should add that the metallic braid and faux pearls are very cheap looking--actually quite tacky in real life (but it looks like these could be easily removed, but the hem problem is still terrible). What a pity. The dress is so nice in the photo (though the ivory is quite a bit darker in real life, too).
