Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple but beautiful! I ended up buying another one of these dresses because I love the fit and weight of this dress! It is very flattering on the waistline and bust area! If you love wearing dresses or even if you are like me and are shy about dresses this is a great one to have in your closet. 10/10 best purchase this year!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Dress Beautiful dress, I think it's just the right mix of elegance without being too formal. It felt flowy and hugged my curves in all the right way without being tight in any manner. The fabric is light and breezy. My one complaint or concern is that the button loops are not very secure and two loops popped off so I had to resew them. I am 5'7, I usually wear a 14/16, but I took the dress in size zero and it fit perfectly. It hits at the floor for me, so when I wear flats it kind of drags. The buttons do not go down to the hem, so there is a little vent/slit that looks really nice when you walk showing just a bit of leg.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Black dress Even though I was worried about getting a full length black dress, I loved this one. When making this dress, the person put thought into the details between all of the buttons in front to the lace backing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous Dress I love this dress and the lace features on the back and lower part of the dress. The buttons are super cute. Only thing is due to the buttons it takes longer than usual to dress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've considered buying a backup... I absolutely love the flow and fit of this dress. It's witchy-esque so the girls at the store asked where I would wear it; umm... Everywhere!!! Every time I get the chance. Love the flutter sleeves and the victorian-style buttons (and their elasticity). I have thought about having an extra for when I eventually wear this to death

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So flattering! Found this in store to wear as guest for a friends upcoming wedding. It's so feminine and figure flattering! The largest size they had available in the store was a 3, and usually I'm a 4, give or take due to the clothing consistency. But the 3 fit me almost perfectly! There is NO stretch. It is fitted. So, be aware when purchasing online. I'm not as tall as the model, and bigger in the bust, 5'8" with 44DDD/E. The dress, in 'Regular' length, grazes the floor ever so slightly when I am barefoot, in my heels its the perfect length. My chest does strain the top few buttons, but I can remedy that with a little double-sided fabric tape, thanks to the extra bit of fabric behind the buttons. The flutter sleeves fixes most of my flabby arm insecurities! And I love how the fitted waist gives me an hourglass shape. The fabric feels a little heavy, but I love how it makes the dress flow once you put it on. I did purchase the Spanx open bust body suit to make me feel more secure, but you don't necessarily need it. This dress doesn't cling to problem areas, once again thanks to the weight of the dress. Love this purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful dress!! I am obsessed with the style and fit of this dress! It looks gorgeous on and will be perfect for the fall especially with a cute floppy hat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous dress! This dress is absolutely gorgeous and I'm so glad I bought it. It has such a medieval boho vibe, the sleeves are cute and long enough to cover my upper arms, the lace accents on the bottom and under the bust are beautiful and feminine and I love the open lacy upper back. I paired this with some gladiator sandals and got so many compliments at work!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will have you in awe at a smaller waistline!!!! I agree with the other review (not the first one)...this is a wonderful dress! Even the model is not doing the dress justice! Maybe this dress is not for those with a wide waist, but if you have an hourglass or close to an hourglass figure you will love it! It is very flowy at the bottom, the flutter sleeves hides arm fat and it is so beautiful around the makes you look and feel 2 sizes smaller! I cannot say enough wonderful things about this dress! I feel like a size 10-12 when I wear it and I'm a size 16!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful & feminine I bought this dress yesterday and it is stunning. It is disappointing that the first review for this dress complains about no stretch in the waist. It literally says that in the details. I applaud torrid for finally making a more fitted dress. All the dresses on this site are basically the same with a lot of stretch. Too much stretch if you ask me. I end up feeling like I am wearing a tent most of the time. The button details in this dress is what sold it for me. They have some stretch to them for those of us who are larger in the bust. I usually wear a size 0 but went up one size due to my bust. This dress has a more tailored feel that really hugs my curves (in a good way). Torrid, if you are listening, make more fitted options!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely dress I usually fit torrid dresses at a 2, so i bought this one in that size. The length is perfect for me (5'3") and is dramatic when i swoop about the house. If i want to wear this outside, however, I'm gonna need to sew in a placket for the bust. Im at a very full 38/40 G and my boob game has kinda wrecked the elastic on the buttons. If you're not so broad up top this is a great dress for being the best spring witch ever.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Much Too Small I bought this a month ago originally, in a size 2 which is the size I consistently wear with any "challis" garment. I couldn't even get it over my bust. I returned it and tried on a size 3 at the store and again... barely fit over my bust and would have puckered and looked bad had I just decided to make it work. I'm starting beauty school soon and need more black clothing and love how professional and light this dress is, so I ordered it in a size 4. I finally was able to wear it for the first time today, a month after my initial purchase, and I wish I could say I loved the fit now that it "fits". It looked fabulous as I wore a velvet cardigan over it but had I not worn something over it my entire underarm and side of my bust would have been exposed when I lifted my arm, because I had to go up 2 sizes. This dress would have been a 5/5 stars had a stretchy panel been added to the back as there often is in Torrid's dresses. Disappointing that in order to wear a dress I adore I'll have to either have it tailored or wear something to cover my sides.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not worth the money I bought this to wear to my grandpas funeral wore it for 3 or 4 hours and the buttons started falling off. There was also a snag in the dress when I bought it from the store. Save your money and get a better quality dress.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Low quality fabric Don't get me wrong, I LOVE this dress but I only wore it once and then tiny holes appeared in the fabric all over the dress. Not even at the seams just in the middle of the fabric! This is now like the 5th dress I've had to return this year due to poor quality rayon that doesn't hold up. It's hit and miss because I have a lot of Torrid dresses made of rayon that are perfectly fine so I don't know why some just start falling apart. I hope to get a replacement of this dress because it really is beautiful. The buttons are great and they provide a layer of fabric so skin doesn't show if they start to pucker a bit (like when you sit down) and the lace detail is so pretty. I felt so beautiful and the fitted waist is very flattering. I didn't even know that it didn't have stretch but I felt it was fine, got my usual size and didn't have any issues. Would love to see this style in other colors or floral prints as long as the fabric doesn't fall apart after the first wear.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not like the picture I brought the dress because I loved the style when I got it I was kinda disappointed i sized up but the dress was still tight so I suggest you size up and it’s really then material... I love the buttons details but that’s about it.. I’m usually never disappointed with my purchases but this dress was a no for me

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I love the dress, just not the quality. I bought the dress about a month ago. Tried it on when it arrived to make sure it fit and then hung it in the closet. Finally had an occasion to wear it so I pulled it out recently. When putting it on a button snapped off an area that isnt even tight on my body. It was just so loosely sewn on that it came right off. When putting the button back on I found 5 or 6 total that were ready to just fall right off. I fixed them back on and tried putting the dress on again. When I finally reached the top button the loop snapped before I even put the button inside. Just the slight pull from trying to open the loop enough snapped it. So now the dress in not wearable. 2 stars because the style is cute. That's it. But like most products from Torrid it was cheaply made and over priced.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pretty but poor fit This dress is very pretty and the fabric is nice. Its lightweight and body skimming but not clingy (doesnt show lumps n bumps). Major problem is bust part. 1. it is disproportionately small compared to the rest of the dress. I wear a 44DD and it was so tight that the buttons were stretched to the max. 2. the arms are sewn to the sides of the bust. It looks weird. I could have dealt w/ issue 2 but the fact that the bust was so tight it just looked tacky on me. Had to go back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No stretch in waist Size up or two. There is no stretch on the waist. It's pretty but really? This is a plus size store.
