I ordered my usual size large and it is certainly snug, but that’s exactly how I would want it! The Velvet and lace are amazing quality and I wish I could wear it every day
It’s wonderfull !!! The velvet is so luxurious ! Perfect fit I’m 33 waist and Large fits me like a dream
Thank you La Femme!
Let me preface by saying my girlfriend is the purchaser of this dress and this review is strictly from my perspective of seeing her wear it and what she told me about it.
It was our date night and she looked absolutely stunning in this dress. I mean, drop dead gorgeous! The color matched her very well, the velvety material was nice and soft, and the fit was amazing. Although the weather was in the 50s she did mention that the dress kept her warm. To top it all off, it had deep large pockets which she was super excited about.
This dress is a winner!
This dress is so perfect, I tried it on straight from the package and immediately felt like I could be whisked away to dance all night! I’m wearing a 2X which fits perfectly.
I need to wear a very padded bra to fill the front, but it works perfectly.
It’s “just” a beautiful dress that fits this 5’2” UK size 18/20 really well and might just be my favourite! As others have said, the colour is wonderful- midnight is a great description.
Thank you La Femme en Noir for making me fabulous!
The overall construction (though not the fit for plus size please see further) of this dress is very good quality. The fabric has a very formal drape and the lace is top of the line. As others have remarked it’s a much darker blue in person. While almost Blue Black the tone is still very beautiful. This is beautiful creation!
I was unhappy with the actual cut of the dress as a 2X plus size garment. I felt that the waist hit too high and the bust upper part of the dress was too boxy. A few more inches in the torso vertically would have gone a long way. However If you are shorter wasted this is going to be a beautiful fit on you. I’m almost by 10.
I feel that with a dress of this price and type the plus sizes after XL should not just be wider but totally resized, regraded and professionally fitted on a plus size figure. Having been both a medium /28 waist and a 2X waist in my adulthood I speak with experience that plus size garments of the luxury variety are vastly different in fit requirements. To be a continuing factor with LaFemme plus is that the waists ride up too high on some styles.
I feel so glamorous in this dress! It is the perfect evening dress but I've also worn it with a cardigan for a daytime look. The velvet is so soft it's a joy to wear.
The stock photo doesn't show up the colour so well but it's a beautiful shade of dark blue, almost purple when the light hits! I found the sizing in the bust is a little large on me due to the deep plunge (and it being tricky to find a bra that doesn't show) so I may sew the neck up a little to make it less revealing.
I'm a UK 12 (36-30-39) and bought the medium
This dress makes you feel like a princess. The velvet is lush and it has pockets!!!
I LOVE this dress. It has stretch to it and the material is heavy. Holding it you can tell how luxurious this dress is. It has deep pockets which is always a plus. My only "issue" (which is more a personal issue) was finding a bra to wear since it has a lower neckline than I'm used to.
I am petit 4’9 and a uk 12
I got this in a large and feel like a princess in it
Well worth the money
