5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Feb 15, 2013   

I purchased this dress as a mother of the groom dress for my son's wedding. I have big hips and a small-ish bust. This dress really helped to emphasize my figure, especially my waist. Lots of compliments and an added bonus was that I got it on sale!

poor beading quality
2 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Feb 9, 2013   

would have probably given this 4 stars at this price if beading quality was better - a good many beads already missing - worried what would happen with actual wear and then cleaning. also, armholes are a bit big/low. if not for the price, would have given it 1 star for those factors alone. however, must say the fabric and overall flow are pretty good at this price point, halter style neckline is a flattering cut. debating whether price trumps quality and how many people will actually notice beads are misssing in a dark ballroom. i am a size 12 and ordered a 12, fit pretty true to size, could probably have gotten a 10 and been fine and possibly avoided the armhole size issue.

Uncomfortable at the neckline
2 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Jan 22, 2013   

I had to return this gown because the halter neckline sat so close to my neck that it choked me. I had to keep pulling the neckline away from my neck while I was showing my husband how the dress fit. I couldn't imagine going through an entire evening feeling this way, so back into the box it went. The other issue I had with the dress was the way it fit me at the bust. I am not as small as the model (my bra size is 32E) and the gathered jersey at the top of the gown accentuated by boobs in a way that was not flattering. The reason I chose 'Yes' to recommend the dress to a friend is because I have friends whose body type this gown would flatter. The gown is well-made, and flattered my body from the waist down. The center-front slit is an impressive feature and adds a sexy touch to the gown.

Good black dress
4 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Dec 21, 2012   

This dress is made of a nice, heavy black jersey with a subtle sheen. The center section around the waist is beaded with shimmery black beading. There is a slit in the front of the dress that comes up to my knees. Definitely a classy dress if you've got an event to attend. I am usually a size 6, occasionally an 8, and this dress in a 6 fits perfectly. The only slight problem I can see is the neckline, which is a little high and tends to rub. But I can overlook that for all the positive qualities! The length is also perfect for me at 5'6 with 3-4 inch heels. There is an opening at the top of the dress in the front and the back. Nothing too revealing, but it would be safest to wear a black strapless with it.

JS Boutique Cutaway Shoulder Beaded Waist Gown
4 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Dec 10, 2012   

This dress looked beautiful when I put it on ... I bought the 14 as I'm a 14 on the bottom and a 10 on top - and I figured I would alter it if it worked. I like everything about this dress ... it hides a multitude of bumps and creates a flowing look. The 12 might work a little better ... the waist needs to be made smaller and altering the beaded waist will likely be a challenge - and I think there is enough room in this dress to go a little smaller. I haven't made a final decision yet ... but this dress is one of the top 2 finalists.

My favorite dress
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Nov 25, 2012   

I was thrilled to find this dress online. Several years ago I purchased the same style in black with a silver sequined detail at the waist. I've never received so many compliments on a formal dress. This one in plum with the tonal beading is just as beautiful and feels wonderful on. The jersey material is substantial and drapes beautifully, making the full skirt very comfortable. The wide waistband and the gathering through the bust are very flattering. I'm 5'5" and the length is perfect in 3-3.5" heels.

Comfy and Common!
4 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Oct 23, 2012   

This dress fit the bill for my post-baby body. It was comfortable and flattering. My only complaint is that FOUR other women at my event thought so too. I saw myself coming and going all evening. I guess that's what happens when you go to a black tie event in Seattle where many women shop at Nordstroms! I will say that for the average woman this probably runs long. I am 5'10" and even with heels it was plenty long.

5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Oct 19, 2012   

I purchased this dress along with 3 others for a formal evening event - this one is the keeper. I am 5'6" 120 lbs and this dress fit nearly perfectly - just a bit long - am having it shortened a bit. The fabric is wonderful, flows very gracefully. Feels great on. Very classic look, love the beading at the waist.

Lovely gown
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Oct 12, 2012   

This dress is made from a heavyweight jersey so it flows nicely. What you don't see in any photos is that there is a front slit up to around knee height so you can show a little leg if you wish. It's not too racy. Neckline is nice. You CAN wear a regular bra if you're careful with color and straps, but I won't be doing that. I'm 5'6" and wear 3.5" heels with it and find that this dress is actually a little long, which is surprising since most ready-made dresses hit me just right, but this does not drag. A nice choice for a wedding, prom, or black tie function (for which I'm wearing it).

Beautiful Feel!
4 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Oct 9, 2012   

The dress is beautifully made and the new plum color is fantastic. The fit was great except for the neckline. I should have heeded an earlier post about the restricting neckline. I have a difficult time wearing turtlenecks and heavy necklaces, so I don't know why this would have been any different. If this does not bother you, this may be the dress for you. I, unfortunately, had to return the dress.

The dress is stunning. It is not of flimsy material. The detail @ the waist is beautiful. The split going up the front gives it personality. I feel like a diva. I have seen this design much cheaper but the quality wasn't there. I'll be wearing this dress to my daughter's sweet 16 party next month!

Nice but runs small
4 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Sep 16, 2012   

This is a very lovely dress. I had read other reviews of this dress that cautioned that it was a heavy dress. I did not find that to be the case. It was a comfortable weight and was flattering however it ran small and I could not get it zipped up all the way. I would still recommend this dress, however order it a size larger than you normally wear.

4 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Sep 8, 2012   

This dress was comfortable, easy to wear, fit and hung beautifully. I must have overlooked that it was jersey material so I was a little surprised at the quality of material. But for the price it was just fine. I did have it altered to close the front split. It didn't seem to need it.

Elegant gown at reasonable price
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Sep 5, 2012   

Manufacturer's description was spot on. Gown was gorgeous, comfortable and fit perfectly. As soon as I put it on I felt pretty. Only issue is some of the beading fell off from the back before I even wore it. However, Nordstrom's customer service was able to rectify the issue and all was well again. I would highly recommend this dress and buying online with Nordstrom.

LOVE IT!
4 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Aug 20, 2012   

OK first let me say the dress is lovely ... truly... I haven't worn it yet, my event is next month. But I am 5"2 and 120 so I usually take a 6P --- so that is what I bought, but because my torso is averaged sized and really my legs are short, the 6P was a bit to tight on the torso at the top ... so I returned it and tried the regular 6 because I LOVED the dress. And the regular 6 is so much more comfortable -- I just need to get it hemmed (a lot)! I guess the waist just fell better on me with the regular size. since there is beading there isn't much give and I needed it to come down on my ribs a bit more. I just wanted to share in case there were others with the same type of frame as mine. You will not be disappointed -- dress is gorgeous!

Stunning dress!!!
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Jul 30, 2012   

Purchased this dress for my son's upcoming August wedding, looked everywhere for a dress that was classy and elegant without looking matronly, like so many Mother of the Bride/Son dresses look. The minute I put it on, it was a stunner, made me feel beautiful, and was extremely comfortable and easy to walk in, the skirt flowed beautifully. I was thinking about maybe sewing up the slit in the front, but it only came up to my knee, and my husband and daughter begged me not to!!! Very happy!!

beauty at a great price
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Jul 21, 2012   

I'm glad that I read other reviews and decided to give this dress a chance. It is even more attractive in person than in the photos: the plum color is fabulous and the beaded waistline adds understated glamor. The dress is heavy on the hanger but very comfortable to wear, even on a very warm summer afternoon in So. California. And what a great price for a knockout dress for a special occasion! I am 5'6" and weigh 125-ish. I ordered size 6, had it hemmed so that I could wear it with sandals with a 1" heel, and had the front slit sewn closed. (It was unnecessary, in my opinion, and unflattering in my case.)

Love the flow
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Jun 1, 2012   

The fabric on this dress is nice and heavy, which creates a beautiful flow when you move. I had narrowed my choice for a "mother of the bride" dress down to 4 dresses, but selected this one because of the overall fit and the flow of the skirt, especially when you move.

Beautiful but heavy!
4 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - May 31, 2012   

The neckline and general cut of this gown are beautiful, but the fabric is remarkably heavy (and would be HOT, I think). While the center front slit probably does "allow for ease of movement" I found it most disconcerting. With a more subtle slit (perhaps on the side instead of dead center and nearly to the top of one's thigh!) and in a lighter (in physical weight) fabric, this would be a wonderful dress. I am returning it because it will be too heavy and hot for the formal summer wedding in Italy for which I need it. I loved the neckline, loved the beaded waist, but hated the slit and felt the fabric was too heavy for a summer event.

Odd fit
2 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - May 31, 2012   

The dress is beautiful and well made with a flowing full skirt. The bodice is attractive and the beadwork very nicely done. The problem with the dress is that the neckline is so tight and binding that it literally chokes you. I could not even figure out a way to alter it. I ordered my normal size 6. A different size would not help. I had to return the dress.

stunning!
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - May 31, 2012   

This gown looked a little plain on the website; however, i was looking for a very comfortable gown--nothing fussy. This gown is absolutely beautiful! It does fit true to size somewhat, although i did have it taken up a little throughout the hips as it was just a little big.( but this was minor) I am 5'6", weight 120, 34-27-35 and wear the size 4. It is very sophisticated. There is also a long split down the front middle that is not seen in the photograph, this just adds to the glamour! Since Norstrom offers free shipping and returns, I decided to try this and I am so so glad i did! The fabric is very comfortable and easy care, It will travel easily.

5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - May 10, 2012   

Beautiful, stunning dress, but not for my body type (petite, straight) can't blame the dress, it's my figure I blame, so yes I will give the dress five stars, (my figure?)two stars. I would definitely recommend this dress to someone who has the body for it.

3 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - May 8, 2012   

The dress runs a little smaller than department store sizes. The top and neckline is very flattering. Loved the dress in red, but the red was too short for me. I am 5'8". The plum in the same size was a little longer, but the waistline beading wasn't as arractive. On the red dress, the waistline beading was the same color, which Iliked. The Beading on the plum was silverish. I would prefer plum beading on the plum fabric.

Close but no cigar
4 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - May 2, 2012   

I'm 5'4" and 110 and have a slender build. I ordered a size 4 and it felt like it was hanging on me a bit. The dress is kind of heavy. I really liked the dress, so I ordered a size 2 and hoped it wouldn't be too small. Got the 2 today and it's still loose. Not that much different in fit from the 4. Plus it's too long and would have to be shortened. I'm really bummed! It's a beautiful dress. From all the reviews I read about this dress, it seems like it fits much better someone with a fuller figure. So if you have a slender, athletic build, I probably wouldn't recommend this dress.

I am between size 4 and 6. With this dress, everything else is in the right place, but I couldn't breath when I was going to put the little hook behind my neck to complete putting on the dress. The neck was cut just very very small and I couldn't breath. I got size 6 as well and still have that problem.

The dress is way too short. I am 5'8" and 127 pounds. There is no possible way to make this long enough. Fit seems good. Fabric nice. Not quite sure why it has a slit. If I kept it I would sew it closed.

3 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Apr 10, 2012   

Nice dress but fit is much bigger than shown. Higher waistline also. Not a good choice if you're slim.

Poorly designed
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Apr 2, 2012   

I am normally an 8/10 so I ordered the dress in a 10 and it was just a bit too small. I reordered in a 12 and it fit fine without any alterations. Everyone I have shown the dress to (including my husband) has described the dress as stunning! My son's wedding is two weeks away and I can't wait to wear the dress.

Amazing
4 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Apr 1, 2012   

I was deliciously pleased and impressed by my dress. Plus 1- I received the dress within a week in Canada. Awesome job. 2-It fit perfectly knowing I have voluptuous attribute top and bottom 3-I am still to finish counting the compliments about that dress Minus 1- the dress was a little ripped in front when I received it but I was able to fix it. I am definetely coming back to shop here, very good 1st experience with Nordstrom.

Beautiful fit
4 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Mar 30, 2012   

I am returning the dress, but not because of the quality, fit, or service. It just doesn't look good on me. I should have known the cutaway shoulder wouldn't work. I love the rouge dress. it's great!

Great Dress
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Mar 29, 2012   

I bought this dress in cherry red for my daughter's wedding. Decided not to wear it but want to cut if off and use as a dressy short dress. Simple but elegant. Several people thought it looked better on me than on the hanger.

floppy
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Mar 24, 2012   

This is a beautifully simple dress! It hangs beautifully and has a quiet elegance. I purchased it to wear to an out of town evening wedding in May. it doesn't wrinkle, true to size and comfortable. It has a flattering fit for my size 16 shape. The length is perfect on my 5'6" frame with reasonable heals. The fabric is sturdy enough to glide over curves with out too much detail that is sometimes apparent in a flimsier fabric. I may cut it off to knee length either before or after since this length feels a bit formal and I would like to wear it again often.

MOG Dress
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Mar 19, 2012   

This was elegant and beautiful, fit well. I was looking for something without beading, and a bit more high fashion/edgy, although it would have been my second choice, as the beading was subtle and it was just Classic and elegant, and LONG enough for my 5'10" frame: with spikes, it hit the ground. It also hid all flaws

Gorgeous!
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Mar 9, 2012   

This is a gorgeous dress--but I was looking for something to wear in mid-July, and while the fabric is a beautiful jersey, it is way too heavy for July in Chicago. Sad, because it is very flattering on.

Perfect dress!
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Mar 6, 2012   

I bought this dress for my sons wedding. I am a size 4 and that's the size I ordered and it fits perfect. The only problem of course since I am 5'2", it is too long so I have to have it hemmed. I love the dress and it was shipped very quickly.

Gorgeous dress

I got this dress to wear to a Gala. Haven't worn it yet, but it fits like it was made for me. I got a size 4, I am 5"4 1/2 " and weigh 130. I am looking forward to wearing it and will feel very comfortable in it. I got the red one. It is a beautiful color of deep red.

3 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Mar 4, 2012   

Lovely dress with the way it drapes and defines your waist. I am 5'11" and the dress was a little short and somewhat binding in the neckline possibly because I ordered a size down so the waist would fit perfectly. It did not fit my neck as in the picture but came up too high. Fortunately Nordstrom always has lots of other dresses to choose from.

Good Pick
4 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Feb 27, 2012   

This dress hits all the right spots. The fit is true to size. I am about 5'3 and ordered a regular and the dress was right at the floor with my high heels I had on that night. Perfect! The zipper in the back slides very nicely. And the dress has a nice weight to it. You receive an extra bag of beads in case there's a mishap in the future. The upper part of the dress is lined, I just wish that was the case with the bottom half. That's my only complaint.

Gown
3 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Feb 23, 2012   

I love this gown and the Black fit with no problem except I was going to a red and white affair therefore I needed it in Red. I received the Red same size and all but it did not fit the same it was more snug. Also by the end of the evening some of the beading started coming apart on the back of the gown. However, make sure you try on the dress in the color you want because apparently there can be a difference in sizing. Only reason not 5 star is because of the difference in fit for same size gown. and beading issue don't know if it was only and issue for this gown.

Lots of fabric
3 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Feb 22, 2012   

I followed the measurements to order the suggested size. The sequined waistband fit ok but the fabric is a good bit thicker than I anticipated resulting in a very 'full' look in the rest of the dress. I would have to have considerable alterations done to hem and take in the excess up top. It was a very beautiful dress but I had to send it back.

Comfy and Common!
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Feb 22, 2012   

I was so thrilled to receive this dress, it was packaged so well that it was ready to wear right out of the box. It is very flattering and even slimming! The only thing for taller women, it isn't particularly long. I am 5'7" and it hits the floor in my bare feet, but my shoes show when on.

5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Feb 20, 2012   

Looking for a mother of the bride dress, that was elegant, a little bit sexy and creates a flattering figure as well! My daughter said, no need to look any further, this is the one!

fits like a glove
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Feb 14, 2012   

I purchased this gown on line for a black tie event. It is beautifully made and fits like a glove. The material is such that the gown hangs perfectly. I cannot wait to wear it. Not sure if the front slit is necessary but it is not a problem for me.

understated elegance
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Feb 12, 2012   

This dress, with a little black jacket, will be perfect for my daughter's wedding this spring. It is so flattering to my ample hips and thighs and accentuates a more slender waist. It will travel perfectly, having arrived in a small box with NO wrinkles at all. It will accompany me to Italy for another wedding this fall! Anyone who has a pear shaped body configuration will be very happy with this dress. I ordered it in plum and the color is rich and luxurious.

Beautiful Dress!
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Feb 10, 2012   

This dress is everything I hoped for - rich plum color, elegant, beautiful beading and the perfect length. When I used the size chart it said I was a size 6 (I am 5'8'' 148 lbs - lean and muscular). When I received the size 6 it was too tight around the beading - as other reviewer mentioned. I re-ordered the 8 and fits great around the beading but a little loose in the hips and bodice. Took it to the tailor for minor adjustments and now fits like a glove! Look forward to wearing it at a wedding that I will be the master of ceremony at! Highly recommend this dress.

Lovely and classy
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Feb 10, 2012   

This dress arrived quickly (less than a week), and when I unpacked it from the box, it was beautiful! Once I tried it on, I was sold on it. The classy style is beautiful and elegant, and ensures modest coverage up top, while still looking stylish and not at all old-ladyish. The skirt is long and I will have it hemmed, as I'm 5'4" tall and will wear no more than a 2" heel. I can't wait to wear it in June!

elegant and comfortable
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Jan 28, 2012   

The plum is beautiful, however, my future daughter-in-law didn't want me to wear the same color as her mom. I ordered the rouge (red) and from the pictures it looks more of a wine color, but it is certainly a bright red. The bridesmaids are wearing green, so the red didn't go either. Guess I will wear the plum - I feel elegant in the dress. Very classy!!!

Simply Beautiful
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Jan 27, 2012   

Got this in black for a Mardi Gras ball & all is I can say is "WINNING"! Fits perfectly in my reg size 8. I'm a little over 5'3 & 149lbs. I was worried about it being 2 long but with my 5inch heels, it just barely touches the floor! It flatters my 34C cup & it falls nicely!

lovely mom of the groom dress
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Jan 24, 2012   

I really had a hard time finding a style appropriate for my sons wedding that didn't look like something Margaret Thatcher would wear on a bad day - or, something inappropriately young - too low cut - short - you know. This dress is just right - stylish, not too old or young. The material is very nice , the beading is not gaudy. I am 5'5, 128 lbs, a bit hippy and the 6 fit just right - super flattering. I will wear a strapless bra with this.

This is my mother of the bride dress. I selected the color rouge. The dress is very good quality and fits perfectly. The length is perfect with a pair of heels. The dress is very classy and sophisticated. Not your grandmothers mother of the bride style.

So Pretty
4 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Jan 10, 2012   

This red is truly beautiful. It fits true to size and the beading is very striking. The skirt is a bit fuller than I would like....tons of material from the waist down, but would certainly recommend it. I love it so much I may buy it in purple as well for my son's wedding.

5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Jan 7, 2012   

Wanted something more elegant than what everyone else was wearing for homecoming court, and this did the trick! So beautiful! (Got it in black) It's not a light dress but it's not heavy. I'm on the shorter side (4'11") and I got a 2 and wore tall heels and it still dragged an inch or 2 but this has been my favorite dress I have ever bought. :) Paired gold bangle, gold heels and gold dangle earrings.

Flattering, affordable dress for any occasion
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Dec 29, 2011   

This dress is fabulous. The heavy jersey material flatters any shape (believe me!). The dress is true to size. I am a 12 hips and bum but can sometimes fit in a 10 waist. The beaded waist doesn't give at all so it is very true to size. The dress fits in all the right places and is very comfortable to wear. You don't need any 'special' items to keep it in place or to wear with it. A strapless bra is it! You cannot beat the look for the price!

Beautiful
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Dec 19, 2011   

Bought this dress for my wife, the smokey blue was out of stock when she first saw it but thanks to her persistence she caught it the second time around and I snapped it up just in time. It flows beautifully on her seeing as she's tall and slender...she looks so elegant in it! The beads tend to make the dress a little heavy but not prohibitively so. No wonder this color sold out fast, it's truly stunning.

Fabulous, easy to wear & elegant
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Dec 11, 2011   

Very happy indeed with my online purchase of this gown for an important Ball. The fabric felt just right, neither too hot or heavy & still sleek enough to feel a bit luxurious. Easy to travel with too, as fabric doesn't lend itself to creasing. The color, & style are elegant & this dress won't date too quickly. The top accentuates the bust & the high waistline elongates the legs. Very flattering to a shorter, curvy figure :D

Beautiful Dress
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Dec 6, 2011   

I purchased this dress for a work holiday party. It fit perfectly and the color was gorgeous. I opted to return it because I found another dress that was more figure flattering. I would have kept it but I really didn't have anywhere else I needed to wear it for the price. Would definitely recommend!

So pretty!
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Nov 15, 2011   

I bought this dress for an evening gala. Thanks to other reviewers who included their height, I bought this dress. I'm 5'8", 137 pounds. I have to say, it was a perfect fit and length with 2" heels. The dress itself is on the heavy side so it's great for a fall/winter event. Also, I loved the dark plum for autumn. The beaded waist really accentuates someone with a small waist. So many people complimented me on how gorgeous the dress is. Really pretty dress and super comfortable!

beautiful dress
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Nov 13, 2011   

I have been searching for months for a dress for my daughter's wedding and when I saw this dress, I knew it was the one for me. It can be a little scary ordering a formal dress online so make sure to take the correct measurements! My dress came in last week and it fits great...maybe sligthly bigger than other gowns I have tried on. The navy blue color is amazing, and the beaded deatailed waist is beautiful and very flattering. I could not be happier with the design or the quality of this gown. I am very excited to show it off in a couple of weeks.

Beautiful and simple
4 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Nov 1, 2011   

Really love this dress, but like some of the other reviewers, the beaded band around the waist was too tight. I must be short-waisted because my waist wasn't the problem--it was my rib cage! The band ended just under my bustline and was very, very tight. Unfortunately because of the seams and the beads, there's no room for adjustment. It is perfect to hide a small belly, and even though the size chart claims this is best for a pear shaped figure, it would totally work for a boyish figure like mine (more V-shaped) because it gives the illusion of a bust and hips. Except not so if you're short waisted!!! Rats...

It's a winner!
5 Star Review   By Anonymous on Nordstrom - Oct 28, 2011   

I love this dress and it fits great! I like the matte fabric in the deep plum color. I bought a size 4 and it was a bit snug in the ribcage, which surprised me. I'm 5'6" and 125 with a small frame and B chest. The chest part was great and I might not even need a bra to go with it, the length is good with heels, too long with flats. I'm very short waisted and the beaded band did wrinkle a bit on my hip bones, but if you're not super short waisted, it won't do that. It's a very easy dress to wear and totally hid my tummy.

This was ordered for my 23 year old daughter to wear to a wedding. Everything about it was disappointing, except the size. It's a very heavy dress, material looked cheap, beads looked really cheap.
