Rated 1 out of 5 by kharmasti Ill-fitting for slim and curvy bodies
First, this is polyester with a rayon lining. So basically you either sweat in the heat or you feel like you're wearing a shift dipped in cold water in the winter. I looooovvee all of Champagne & Strawberries designs when I first seem them, but their use poly and poly mixes where they could have easily used a silk or silk/cotton mix and upped the price by about $50, is just disappointing.
Second, as with the other Champagne & Strawberry pieces from the summer, terrible fit. Whatever they were doing wrong with the summer dresses, they have not fixed. I ordered a Size 2 for myself and a Size 8 for my sister. The bust is poorly designed and armholes are far too large. I'm a slim, slightly curvy figure and my breasts were oddly squashes and there were folds of fabric near my armpits. The fit in the upper bodice was also odd for my much more curvy sister.
I really love this shade of green, but it was a disappointment. I might wait until second cut and attempt to get a larger size altered down to a decent fitting Size 2

Rated 5 out of 5 by ScrubJay Perfect for a Real Person!!
I cannot stress how beauty of this dress. After finding it online I was sceptical after reading the first (and only review). Because of this, I decided to venture out and see if they had it in store.They had one left in an XS. I'm 5'1 roughly 125lbs with a pear athletic build and was doubtful it would fit, but it did and it fit beautifully. This is a beautiful dress made for some with a little bit of curves. The fabric and textiles are a lovely combination; additionally, once you see it in person you realize that it could be dressed up or dressed down. Just beautiful! Thank you for making a dress that's meant to be worn by someone with curves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by emvan87 Super cute and unique
I really love this dress! I wore it to work with tights, boots, and a fun necklace and got so many compliments on how pretty and unique it was. Works well with a slender body type and small chest. Really easy to dress up or just wear as is. Also very comfortable. For the sale price, this is a steal! It runs slightly large.
