I am a 38-30-44 and wear a large in most clothes, a medium in LFEN swing dresses. My bust is a 36B.
I love this dress. I think the fabric is amazing. It has a waxy looking sheen in that the satin is shiny, but not sharp shiny and is rather a soft sheen.
The bust is a little large for me, and the way the fabric is cut, it kinda flattens me out when I wear a bra, but if I take the bra off and scoop the girls up, I get a nicer bustline. The skirt is lovely and sways like a dream. The sleeves are dramatic without being theatrical.
I love how this dress looks on, but it would be more flattering on a larger bust. It feels like it wants to slip off my shoulders, but the fabric is so luxurious I can't give it up. I love it.
This is a beautifully made dress. The satin fabric is light and surprisingly cool to wear. The dress isn't lined but has a fair amount of volume to the skirt without an underskirt. (I'm wearing a tulle underskirt in the photo for extra volume).
I got my usual medium and the fit is good (35-30-40, UK 12). My only issue is the neckline is rather wide for me so the sleeves kept slipping off my shoulders and I did feel a bit exposed wearing it. With the sleeves being such a feature, it's not a style really works with anything over the top so I'm on the lookout for a chemise style top to wear underneath for more coverage and to get more wear out of it
This dress was beyond my expectations! The fabric is super luxurious and light weight. The cut is super flattering. I don't like a super snug fit so the XL fit me perfectly. I size by my bust (44 in) not my waist (35.5 in) for this item. The skirt makes the waist kind of firm, but it's not tight on me. I have room to wiggle and snack.
This dress fits like a literal dream, I wouldn’t change a thing about it! I can’t wait to wear it this holiday season!
I'd been anticipating this dress ever since they mentioned it in the Vixen Salon, and once I saw it available on the website, I had to have it. The fit is is right on target, the dress gave me a nice little shape so I didn't wear additional shapewear. Even though it has a zipper in the back, it's easy to put on by yourself.
The dress has a lot of swing to it, the satin is beautiful (I'm not sure pictures do it justice) and I felt like a gothic princess wearing it! If you are on the fence about buying this dress, don't be: get it! It's well made, and I can see this being a dress I look to whenever I want to feel special.
