Pretty, but underbust ruching sits funny
Pretty dress on my curvy body. Fitted bust and arms without being too tight but... the 3 sectioned cut-bust, waist and skirt is too much! The paneled waist over lay lace ruching type waistband which isn't really ruched its just an excess lace overlay that you can move to sit however and would need adjusting during the evening is very unflattering! It adds bulk, is not a flattering cut from side or front view adds bulk to hips and top tummy! I am surprised more reviews do not mention this as I am average height etc

I actually saw this dress on Lane Bryant's website and was really upset when it was sold out of my size. My daughter found this website after searching the designer's name. I bought this in teal for my daughter's wedding. I loved it immediately even though I bought the wrong size! At first I dreaded exchanging it, but it was the easiest process ever and the communication was wonderful. Super fast shipping on both occasions. The exchange fit perfectly and it was super comfortable. I received a lot of compliments on it!

I purchased this dress in a 3x not really knowing if this was the correct size, but I went off the measurements the site offers and I took a guess. The measurements were spot on, I am 5'9 and the dress hits at a perfect length right to the bottom of my knee. I like that it has a built in slip and that the back side of the dress doesn't ride up like a dress would typically do on me, it stays one length all around. The sleeves do seem to fit snug but it has a stretch to it so it doesn't feel bad. This is a gem of a dress and I can't wait to wear it to the wedding I purchased it for.
Reviewer: Tiffany McGrath (Manchester, NH) 7/21/2016
This dress is awesome! I love the twilight grey, the lining on the chest so I don't have to wear a strapless bra, how flattering and light it is, but not too light if it's windy, the sleeves, that it sits just below the knees - I'm approx 5ft 5in... Size was as expected, shipping was fast and the dress is in great condition. I'll be wearing this to two weddings this summer. It looks great and I'm so relieved! I'll shop here again! Woo!

Perfect Wedding Dress
I got this in Raspberry Glazed to wear for my wedding. I wanted to be able to wear it again after as well. Absolutely perfect. Comfortable, true to size.
Reviewer: Tonya (Mogadore, OH) 2/7/2016
Love this Dress
I just recently bought this dress in the color plum. The dress fits me perfect. It was like it was made just for me <3 <3. True to size and absolutely beautiful.

Bridal shower dress
I got lots of compliments on this dress. I wore it to my bridal shower tonight and it was really comfortable and looked awesome! Only issue is it's very long, almost to my ankles. I'm 5'2 so I had to have it shortened, but it looks great and feels great on. This company knows how to make us plus-sized women look great in a dress. Which in my experience isn't always easy because companies just don't know how to create the right cut. Thank you Kiyonna! Wish I could add a photo!
Reviewer: PT (Santa Clarita, CA) 8/6/2015
Wore this dress in teal to my daughter's wedding in June. Got SOOO many compliments. It's the most comfortable dress I've ever worn. The fit was perfect for being a 2x and 5'1". I look forward to wearing it again.
Reviewer: Jen (, ) 7/15/2015
Too long but fit otherwise fantastic
I bought this dress in blue in 0X and 1X, this was my first time shopping here and I wasn't sure how true to size everything was. I'm 5'1" and about 180 lbs and the 0X fit me perfectly, other than the length. Since I bought the dress on sale, I decided to keep it and have the hem shortened. I wore it to a wedding at the end of June and I received a ton of compliments on the dress. If I hadn't had to have the dress shortened, I would have given it 5 stars. It would be fantastic if there was a petite line offered.
Reviewer: Carmen (Kingshill, St. Croix) 6/28/2015
This dress is absolutely perfect. Got mine in the mail Friday, shipping was very fast and I live in the U.S. Virgin Islands. I'm a size 3x and it fits like a dream, the color is so feminine and the fit is very flattering. Will be ordering more colors.
Reviewer: Julissa (New York, New York) 6/14/2015
Amazing fit, but fabric is extremely delicate
I wore this dress to a wedding and received many compliments. Unfortunately, as I was taking the dress off, it snagged on one of my nails and now there is a hole near the right side seam. It's heartbreaking that such a pricey dress could tear so easily. I was looking forward to buying it in the grey, but now I'm afraid it won't last past one wearing. Too much money for a single use.
Reviewer: Destiny (Winnipeg, Manitoba) 5/14/2015
I purchased this dress in Onyx last minute for a wedding and it arrived in Canada in 12 days. Every time I wear this dress I get compliments from woman of all sizes wanting to know where they can purchase it! Worth every penny it cost!!
Reviewer: Courtney (, ) 5/13/2015
Perfect for a beach wedding!
I wore this in grey as a Maid of Honor dress in a beach wedding. I was worried maybe it wasn't fancy enough but it photographs beautifully. Very light weight, moves well and doesn't wrinkle. Fancy but also appropriate for many different occasions - love it!
Reviewer: Chrissy (Mahwah, New Jersey) 4/1/2015
I'm 5'2" & 200+ - got the Luna in 1X and it fits like a dream. The lace is slightly stretchy, soft and so comfortable to wear. I have a large bust and a really broad back which usually requires me to size up in dresses. Not so with this one. Even my 2 year old daughter told me I looked so pretty and fancy!
Reviewer: Maryann Greaves (Mount Airy, MD) 3/19/2015
Lightweight dress and stunning!
This dress is absolutely flattering. It's lightweight too, which is a plus for spring/summer weddings. I didn't have any arm issues like one person said. My arms are pretty big too.
Reviewer: Kim (Coral Springs, FLORIDA) 3/3/2015
I bought this dress for a formal party. It fits perfect, looks amazing and is so comfortable. The look and color of the dress is exactly as it is shown in the picture.
Reviewer: Jessica P. (Phillipsburg, NJ) 3/2/2015
loved the dress but not the color transfer.
I didn't see any other reviews with this issue so maybe it was just my dress. I bought the dress in black and had issues with the color transferring to things. My nails (from pulling the dress down, or adjusting it) turned black at the tips. I was carrying a cream colored bag and the black transferred to the bag and the handle. I was really disappointed because the color will not wipe off.

Perfect Dress For A Wedding!
ABSOLUTELY ADORE IT!!! I received A TON of compliments on the fit, design, & color of this dress while attending a family wedding down in Orlando, FL.
Reviewer: Margaret (MIDLOTHIAN, Virginia) 12/18/2014
I wore this dress to a cocktail party and I received great comments all night!
Reviewer: Katie Sutton (Aurora, CO) 10/20/2014
Doesn't match measurments
I got this dress for myself using the size chart on the web site. I ordered a 2x based on those measurements. Sadly, when I got the dress it was too tight on my arms and on my chest. My arms are not extra big so I am confused there, but I am a 42 DDD though. So ordered a size up.
Reviewer: Ellen R (Tustin, Ca) 9/29/2014
Comfortable dressy dress
I wanted something to attend stepson's wedding that was dressy, good for dancing, comfortable and mature sexy. Thank you Kiyonna! I feel so pretty in this dress, it is perfect.
Reviewer: Laurie O. (Nashville, TN) 9/26/2014
LOVE THIS DRESS!
My fiance bought this dress in black for me as a birthday present in September 2013. When we decided to get married on Halloween that same year, I would not wear any other dress, but this one! I had so many compliments on it, and it is the perfect go to dress for a night at the symphony or a dinner party. I cannot give enough praise about this dress!
Reviewer: Sarah (, ) 9/17/2014
Larger bust and arms? Order up!
This is the first time an 0x in Kiyonna sizes was way too small for me. I ordered this dress in gray, and it was much too tight in the chest and arms. I ordered a scalloped lace Luna at the same time and it fit like a normal kiyonna dress; however, this one ran small. As someone with light skin, the nude panel didn't match my skin tone very well. If your skin is darker, it would look great (and many nudes are too light for most people); however, I'm pretty pale and the difference in color was noticeable.
Reviewer: Sheena (Flint, Michigan) 9/12/2014
Great color, fancy dress
I purchased this in grey for a wedding and a formal event I have to attend. I will say up front that for comfort in a fancier dress this is by far the best I have had. There is no need for spanx, and it's so soft. There are no zippers and hooks. I could wear this dress all night. Only downfalls are that the waist band sits funny on me (probably because I am short) and the nude lining bunches a bit (again, I think it's designed for someone with a longer torso). My husband said these details are so little they will only ever be noticed by me.
Reviewer: Essie Bruell (Chattanooga, TN) 9/11/2014
I bought this dress with some skepticism about how it would look on my 5X body. When I put it on, I was amazed. It was the most beautiful dress I'd worn in years. The cut was perfectly flattering and comfortable. It was sexy but modest enough for any occasion. The lining doesn't cling and is cut to drape over any bulges. This is a fantastically constructed garment, worth twice its price.
Reviewer: Vicki (Riveesaid, Ca) 5/15/2014
My favorite dress ever.
I usually wear a 0x, but I ordered a 1x. I thought that this dress might make me look hippy, but happily I tried it anyway. It's gorgeous and I feel absolutely gorgeous and comfortable in it. I highly recommend this dress. I have the gorgeous grey color and it simply pops with rhinestone jewelry!
Reviewer: Claudia (, ) 2/26/2014
LOVE LOVE LOVE
I love this dress! I ordered one size larger then what I needed, 5X, and it's a little big in the waist, but it looked great. I was afraid the lace was going to look cheap, but it looks fabulous and very luxurious. I have light skin and the mesh is a little darker than my skin tone, but barely noticeable. I have a wedding coming up and I can't wait to wear it.
Reviewer: Shelly (Wood River , Ne) 10/15/2013
Mother of the Groom
I LOVE this dress!! I received so many compliments on this dress and it was the most comfortable dress to wear. We had a wedding in the Rockies and a reception back home. I was able to hike up to the point of the wedding and enjoy dancing later and the dress never felt uncomfortable. I plan on ordering another dress in a different color soon!! I am short,5 ft 1 in, but the dress fell just below my knee and looked fantastic.
Reviewer: Celia (New York, NY) 9/11/2013
My favorite dress of ALL TIME
About me: 5'7 220lbs, (Size 16/18) I ordered this dress in a 2x. I adore this dress; the fit, the fabric - EVERYTHING. This is my go-to dress for special occasions. I just wish I had the money to buy it in every color.
Reviewer: M (VanCity, ) 9/4/2013
I am 5'6 and 175 lbs, and ordered the blue in size 0X. It fit a little snug (I'm fairly busty), but still very comfortable and doesn't look too tight. This dress hit me about mid-knee. The color is nice and the nude lining is fabulous! My beige bra was not noticeable at all (I am fair). The only thing wrong is the lace layer is slightly longer than the lining, so I will be hemming it to be more even looking. Overall, a very nice dress. Ordered from Canada and the delivery was fast! I was impressed that the shipping and duty wasn't too outrageous. Thanks!
Reviewer: Vic (Huntsville, AL) 8/1/2013
Beautiful for every shape and make everyone feel beautiful!
My Matrons of Honor wore this dress in my wedding and they were absolutely gorgeous!! The girls said that they were incredibly comfortable and they received tons of compliments! I believe that at least 2 of the 3 have already worn them to other events.
Reviewer: Andrea (York, Pa) 6/12/2013
Was Worried but totally satisfied!
Ok, I am not one to buy anything on the spur of the moment. I read all the reviews and mostly everyone agrees it is a great dress. The disturbing part for me was the nude fabric inside the lace across the chest and shoulder area. I am German and Irish and I have a very fair complexion that has only had a little sun; the nude fabric is light and transparent, so my skin helped to make the fabric blend while adding a conservative touch at the same time. The other thing I was reading was that the dress was cheaply made. Some reviewers felt the fabric is of average quality; however, the only worrisome thing I have about the dress is the lace snags. My advice is to be extremely delicate with the lace. The material as a whole is nice, comfortable and breathable enough to work for any season. I am 5'4" and 250 pounds with an apple figure. I have the dreaded muffin tops and I am very picky about how dresses fall on my figure; however, this dress falls beautifully. This dress falls below my knees, but with some great boots or pumps it will work. There is some ruching under the bust line, but it adds to the overall design of the dress by giving it texture and accenting the bust to pull away from the tummy area. Overall, I love this dress. My boyfriend is excited to take me out for a night on the town in it and my family is eager to see me in it for my niece's wedding. I love the dress!!
Reviewer: Rebecca (Fairbanks, Alaska) 4/23/2013
LOVE This Dress!
I'm 5'6" and bought the black version in 3X. I wore this with gold accessories to an upscale event and received tons of compliments. The dress is slightly stretchy and was very comfortable. The ruching was flattering and the skirt didn't hug or emphasize my stomach, like some dresses do. The lace is NOT sheer over the chest area, there is nude paneling. I wore a strapless black bra and it worked perfectly. I probably could have worn a regular, nude-colored bra and that would have worked too. Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase and can't wait to wear this dress again!
Reviewer: Pam (Kansasville, WI) 1/24/2013
I have never purchased a dress over the internet before, but when I saw this dress, I had to buy it. I ordered it in blue and it fits perfect, just like I had hoped. It looks so sexy on and it accommodates my big bust. The top with the net lining blends in with my skin perfectly and hides my bra. The lace is very natural looking and hides all my bulges. The skirt is flowy and makes me look as though I have hips. I just wish the lining was made with a silkier material instead of polyester. This dress is a bit overpriced for the material, but it has a nice fit and the ruching makes it worth the price. I knew I would need it shortened because I am short and it is very long. Although I need a place to wear it to, I do not regret buying this dress.
Reviewer: Nicole H (Maricopa, AZ) 1/13/2013
This dress was purchased for my work holiday party and definitely made me memorable; I received so many compliments on it. Not only is this dress great for special occasions, but it's also a great dress to wear at work.
Reviewer: SRS (Washington, DC) 1/4/2013
Just didn't work
I have pined for this dress since it first appeared on the website and finally received it as a Christmas gift. As soon as I pulled it out of the box, I knew it would not work. When I tried it on, I was disappointed that my assumption was correct. The nude lining really doesn't work for me. I think that a more sheer fabric at the top would better accommodate the multiple skin tones of shoppers. The fit over my tummy was frumpy and the ruching made it look worse. The length was pretty unflattering for me (I'm 5'6"). I so wanted this to work, but it just didn't. Plus, I just wasn't happy with the quality of the lace. I have another Kiyonna lace dress that I love love love, but this one just missed the mark. I'm returning it for another dress.
Reviewer: Leslie (Santa Cruz, CA) 12/18/2012
Not great for my shape, but...
This dress is gorgeously made! I have an hourglass figure, carrying most of my weight in my hips. The top of this dress looked great and LOVED the cranberry color, but the bottom of the dress seemed to emphasize my hips. Oh well. I purchased the Smitten Lace Top (basically the top of this dress) and couldn't be happier. If you are more straight waisted, this dress will be divine!
Reviewer: Cindy B. (Tampa, Fl) 12/8/2012
Not what I imagined
This dress is too cute for words! I ordered it for a holiday party and was excited about the grey since I knew everyone else would be in red and black! When I received it, the dress had a purple tint to it, which is fine. The mesh was perfect for my darker skin tone. It relieved the problem of having to find a special bra. The only problem was the sash at the waist. It hung awkward on me. I wanted it to give me a nice flattering fit since I can look a bit boxy in dresses, but it didn't work. Maybe it works in a smaller size. I returned it and got the Valentina Illusion Dress and I felt it worked much better for my body type!
Reviewer: Amanda (, MA) 12/6/2012
I love it!
When I saw this dress on the website, I knew I had to have it. This dress is so adorable and looks great on me. Kiyonna hit it out of the park with this one.
Reviewer: Tiffany (Fort Pierce, FL) 11/30/2012
I Wanted to Love it
This dress is absolutely adorable, but it just didn't work for me. The ruching at the waist was too loose and just hung limply rather than creating the nice waist band as pictured on the site. I don't think the size was the issue, as the lining part fit great and another dress I have in the same size fit fine. I'm sad that I have to send it back; otherwise, it's just what I was looking for!
Reviewer: Amber Back (Blackey, Kentucky) 11/24/2012
This dress is so elegant and flattering to any shape and size! All I can say is that whoever wears this dress will STEAL THE SHOW!
Reviewer: Rina (Port Saint Lucie, FL) 10/28/2012
A perfect fit and style
I'm a 2x, this dress is gorgeous and fit exactly the way it looked on the model. I wore it to a special event and got tons of compliments. The nude lining works well because I wore a black bra under the dress and you couldn't tell at all. Also, the dress is a great length and the ruching over the tummy works miracles. Love the deep slate gray color.
Reviewer: Jen (Wilmington, DE) 10/23/2012
Cute, vintage look
This dress is amazing! I originally bought it in black for an "Adele" Halloween costume, knowing I'd be able to keep it afterwards for many other occasions. I did have to return my original purchase for a smaller size (I am a pear shape), as the bust/mid-section was not as fitted as the pictures made it seem. Got many compliments. Also, got around the bra strap issue by simply wearing a strapless bra.
Reviewer: chicogirl61 (Washington, DC) 10/18/2012
This dress wears EXACTLY like it does on the model. I'm a 3X and it was gorgeous and so slimming. Not only that, but I have a large chest (as in, they don't sell my size chest in brick and mortar stores) and I can still wear a bra with this and it's undetectable because there is a mesh lining under the lace in the chest and back area. Also, this mesh blends with various skin tones so easily. I'm nice and chocolate and my friend is creamy and fair and we both tried it out and it worked. I don't know how, but it does! Get it!
Reviewer: Cassie (Fort Gordon, GA) 9/24/2012
I got this for a military ball; it has such a Mad Men feel about it. I tried it on and just fell in love. I'm 5'10 and a size 14 up top and it fits like a glove. It's the perfect length on me and it's just gorgeous. My husband's eyes popped out of his head. ;o) Thank you Kiyonna for this dress! It's so hard to find dresses that fit a curvy woman and you guys do it every time. I heart Kiyonna!
Reviewer: Mina (Springfield, OR) 9/11/2012
Unique and glamorous!
This fabulous dress was the perfect thing to wear to a wedding. I bought it in Twilight Grey, wore it with flower patterned wedges (pink/yellow/grey), and was stopped by two women telling me that I looked gorgeous and that they'd been admiring my dress since I showed up and wanted to know where I had bought it. This is no surprise to me, as this is the fourth Kiyonna dress that I have purchased and I have LOVED all of them! With each one that I have worn, I have been repeatedly told how beautiful my dress is and how beautiful I look. This one is no exception. I will be buying yellow suede pumps to wear with it this fall. I am a size 12/14 and bought it in size 1. Fits perfectly.
Reviewer: Anna (Chicago, Il) 8/12/2012
Beautiful vintage feel dress!
I love this dress for its Mad Men like look and feel. I purchased this for a late September wedding and will feel like a million, assuming I can figure out a bra situation. My only complaint is that bra straps show and strapless just doesn't work for me. Would have loved this even more had there been a matching fabric wide strap under the lace to seamlessly go with the style of the dress and to serve the purpose of covering the strap. I love it too much to send back so, again, I'll figure something out! Another great dress from Kiyonna!
Reviewer: Raquella (Tucson, AZ) 8/10/2012
I purchased the Luna Lace Dress in grey. I copied the model and wear yellow heels and loved it. I ordered a 2x and it was just right. It is on the fitted side, but it was so comfortable that I did not mind. Husband said I looked awesome! I felt awesome!
Reviewer: Teela (Portland, OR) 7/27/2012
Just received this dress which I bought to wear to a rehearsal dinner (I'm a bridesmaid). This dress is perfect! Lightweight, but my tummy and thighs are well-disguised. Will wear with really cute heels and feel great next to the skinny bride and bridesmaids.
Reviewer: KLM (San Diego, CA) 7/25/2012
A really beautiful, comfortable lace dress!
This is just a lovely, comfortable, and beautifully-made lace dress. It is hard to cover the bra straps, but you can easily get inserts or really thin straps. The raspberry is a gorgeous color that would really compliment just about any complexion. I was very pleased and I think you will be too!
Reviewer: Patti (Thibodaux, La) 7/23/2012

I absolutely Love this dress! I have been looking for months for a dress and I finally found one!!!! Yay!
