I just received it today, it is an amazing dress. It fits me well and I loved it.
Reviewer: Megan (Ithaca , NY) 4/21/2016
Stunning, Stretchy, and Soft!
I bought this dress in light grey for bridesmaid duty for a wedding this summer. It is a great dress. Very soft, stretchy(!), and the lace has a really pretty detail. I love this dress!

I'm 68 years old, 5' 3', size 2X. Wore this dress in black to my son's black and white wedding. Everyone was complementing me on my beautiful dress and asking where I found it. Thanks Kiyonna, no one designs as nice a dress as you do for us curvy girls. Believe me, I tried them all!
Reviewer: Kelly (Ballwin, Missouri) 2/21/2016
This is the best formal dress I have ever owned! I was a little worried about buying it online without trying it on first, however, I knew that this site was good about returns in case I needed to get a different size. So I took the chance and placed the order. The size I received was perfect! I had no idea I was going to look as good as I do in this dress. It is so flattering and very well made. The material has a little stretch to it, which is great because it makes it fit so much better. I am so excited to wear this in my sister's wedding and I will for sure be finding other events to wear this to because I love it so much. It also came with a black fabric bag to store/hang the dress up in, which I love. I can't say enough good things about this dress, and I will be a future customer of their other clothes because I was so impressed. As far as the shipping goes; it was shipped quickly and it was packaged carefully so I appreciate that as well.

Beautiful dress but beware customs charges to the uk!!
I ordered this dress from the Kiyonna site as I couldn't get hold of it on any of the UK Kiyonna stockist sites. It is a beautiful dress and I am very pleased with it. Despite other reviews, it has come up a little short on me. I'm 5'8", and the lining is approx. 2 inches from the ground (in my bare feet). The lace overdress is longer, but to me it looks a bit odd.
Reviewer: Amanda (Amesbury, MA) 1/19/2016
Gorgeous dress on!!
Never in a million years did I think this dress would look good on me, boy was I wrong!!! I am 5'7 and wear between an 18 and 22. I am heavier on the top so I ordered the 3x. This dress is SOOOOO flattering on, I can't believe it. It gives you the illusion of having that hourglass shape. I have never felt so comfortable, confident and beautiful in a dress before! I was hesitant to order a dress online for my black tie gala next month as I have never had good luck, but after reading the reviews boy am I glad I did. I came across Kiyonna just searching for plus sized dresses online, and I will be a repeat customer for sure!!
Reviewer: Kelly (New Brighton, MN) 12/3/2015
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this dress! I'm wearing it as a bridesmaid dress and I'm sure I will have many other occasions to wear it to. I was really hesitant to order a dress online after trying on many that were not flattering in the stores, but it fits amazing and is so comfortable and beautiful. The color is incredible- a nice, deep, rich red. I'm 5'4 and it's a smidgen long with heels, so I will have to take it up a bit but just the lace. I usually wear a size 18 and I got the 2X. It is for a busty gal and I could have maybe got away with a 1X but I don't like things to be too tight. I am so pleased I bought this and would not hesitate to buy more pretties from this company.
Reviewer: Melvanie (Fitzgerald, GA) 11/22/2015
This dress was perfect! The sizing and fit were dead on. It is comfortable and easy to wear, yet stunning. I got so many compliments and I felt beautiful. I am normally hard to fit because I have broad shoulders, I'm a size 26-28, & 6 feet tall. If you're considering this dress, buy it!!! I don't think you'll be disappointed.
Reviewer: Amy (Enterprise , Al) 11/18/2015
The customer service is AMAZING. The quality of this dress is 2nd to none. The overall look, fit and comfort was amazing. It hugged the curves in all the right places! I'm 6 ft. tall and the length was perfect!
Reviewer: Nancy (Cincinnati, Ohio) 10/25/2015
The most beautiful dress ever!
I ordered this dress for a wedding and OMG! It is the most beautiful dress I have ever worn. I usually do not feel comfortable in dresses and this one made me feel like a movie star. It hugs all the right places, is made to perfection and a classic beauty. I can't wait to wear this to the wedding, and for my boyfriend to see me in it because I've never felt so confident in a piece of clothing in my life. I have to say I really appreciate the free shipping and the garment bag they sent with the dress. I am now a forever customer and can't wait for the next occasion to buy something off of here. Hopefully my wedding will be next. Thank you for making such amazing clothing for us real women. :)
Reviewer: Helen K. (Eastford, CT) 9/26/2015
Ordered this dress in grey, and absolutely loved it. The fit was perfect--no zipper was a wonderful plus. I'm 5'6" and wore about a 1" heel and the length was perfect. Even with a 2" heel, it would have been fine. Delivery was very quick also. If there were any down to this dress it would be that it is a bit heavy.
Reviewer: G Benavides (La Puente , CA) 9/23/2015
I got this dress for a wedding. I had lots of compliments all night. The dress was very comfortable and easy to move around in. Very figure flattering. It arrived a few days after I placed the order. I will definitely be shopping on this site for my special occasion attire. LOVED IT!!!!
Reviewer: Leila (Cape Cod , Massachusetts ) 9/17/2015
Wore as a wedding dress!
I loved this dress from the moment I saw it! I thought it would make a perfect wedding dress. It was gorgeous on and I received a lot of compliments on my special day. A great and comfortable dress. Can't thank you enough!
Reviewer: Maricela (San Antonio, Texas) 9/16/2015
BEAUTIFUL!! LOVE MY DRESS!!!
I purchased this dress (nude/black) for a party I went to this past Friday. I was thrilled with everything about this dress... The length, the fit, EVERYTHING! I received so many compliments on my look. I felt so beautiful and comfortable, not to mention confident wearing this dress. I will be buying more items from you, no doubt!!! LOVE MY DRESS!!!! :-)
Reviewer: Jacki (Alexandria, Virginia) 8/14/2015
Couldn't Be Happier!
I found this dress on Pinterest a couple of years ago and loved it. When I needed a dress for a formal wedding, it immediately came to mind. I ordered the gray dress in a size 2 (my dress size is usually anywhere from 14/16 -18/20, depending on the cut). I got the dress at a discount since I was a first time customer. Bonus! It arrived quickly. The color and cut were as pictured online- just beautiful. The combination of fabrics, the heavy, stretchy underskirt and beautiful lace over skirt are smoothing and flattering. I did have to have the lace part hemmed a couple of inches, but the underskirt was the perfect length, and I'm 5'7". Oh, by the way, the wedding was in Denmark, so I had to pack it in my suitcase. It looked great right out of the suitcase too. No ironing needed.
Reviewer: Devon (Philadelphia, PA) 6/21/2015
In love with this dress!!
I'm a bigger gal, so when I was shopping for senior prom dresses I had a few requirements: 3/4 to long sleeve, full length, plus sizes, preferably lace, v neck, and preferably black. The no zipper was an added bonus! Great price (got it for $170ish) and arrived literally the same week I ordered it. Fit perfectly, and had a nice swing to it when I'd twirl. The dress itself was a bit heavy and I was worried about getting overheated (prom was outside in a garden, in late May), but luckily, I didn't! This truly is such a beautiful dress and such a great buy. Completely worth it.
Reviewer: Carol (Houston, TX) 6/17/2015
Feeling like a princess
I just received my gown, not dress, but gown today. I look forward to wearing it on formal night on my future cruise. At 5'3 size 5 it's a bit long but that just adds to the drama. Can't wait!
Reviewer: Dawn (Port St. Lucie, FL) 6/10/2015
Lives Up To It's Name
I just received this gorgeous gown. I couldn't believe how gorgeous it was. It made me feel like a "screen siren". I only get to dress up like this once a year and I can't wait to put this on for my awards banquet.
Reviewer: Brenda (Riverside, California) 6/1/2015
Versatile Gown & Stellar Customer Service
I special ordered this gown in rose wine with extra length (I am 6'2") as a performance gown (classical/opera singer). I had only a short timeline and they had the gown ready in about 10 days. I went to the Anaheim showroom and loved the length but it wasn't laying right on my shoulders/neckline. They had a seamstress on site and she quickly figured out what alteration was needed. Not only that...she made the alterations in just a few hours that same day! I love smaller companies because they can do things like this! The dress, as you can see from other reviews, is a brilliant design for ANY body type. I love that their clothes are stretchy but don't look like they are. THAT makes them fit anybody. So, I can use this awesome gown to perform in, wear to formal events.....and in rosewine - it is perfect for so many different holidays too! The only thing that would have made this experience better was if I could have gotten the additional length at no extra cost. (But alas - with my stature, that never happens.) You won't regret getting this dress.
Reviewer: Latricia (Houston, Texas) 5/15/2015
I WAS STUNNING!!!!
I wore the dress to my twin girls' Sweet 16 Gala & received compliments all night. The dress was very flattering and true to fit.
Reviewer: Brenda (Monterey Park, CA) 5/13/2015
Well worth the price
Loved the dress. True to size and very comfortable. I bought the black on black through the Lane Bryant website. Now that I found the Kiyonna website, I will sure be buying from Kiyonna direct.
Reviewer: Kristian (San Antonio, TX) 5/2/2015
Yaaaaaaaas ...this dress is Perfect!
I wore this dress in black to a military formal dinner. It was stunning, I received compliments all night. I felt so beautiful! I'm 5'4 and wore 3inch heels and it swept the floor gracefully. I highly recommend this dress :)
Reviewer: Barbara (Kettering, Ohio) 4/19/2015
I ordered this gown in gray for my son's March wedding. It arrived in about 4 days, neatly packaged with a garment bag. It was so comfortable and I received many compliments. It was well worth the money!!! I highly recommend this dress. I am a fuller figured woman and it still looked great on me!!!
Reviewer: Michelle Hamilton (Beaumont / Dallas, TX) 3/2/2015
I got married on Valentine's Day in this beautiful dress and I couldn't have been happier. The dress is worth it's weight in gold! The rose/wine color is gorgeous!
Reviewer: Kathy (Waxhaw, NC) 2/15/2015
Fit like a golve
I wore this dress last night to a masquerade ball and it fit perfectly. I am 5' 8", 235 with a pear shape. I received compliments from friends and strangers on both the dress and its color (a deep red). The dress was comfortable all night, both seated and dancing. The length was perfect with kitten heels. Thanks, Kiyonna, for making "women of size" feel beautiful, too.
Reviewer: Chardonnay (, ) 1/16/2015
I am 5'11 and the length was perfect. I wore sparkly silver Tom's with the dress and it worked out beautifully. My husband and I decided to get married January 1st of this year. We planned our small wedding in 28 days! We'll have a larger wedding when he graduates with his PhD in a few years. We've been together so long, we just wanted to make it official in front of our family in an intimate setting. I wore this dress on our wedding day. You have to be confident to wear this dress. It does hug around the stomach area and is tight in most places. Wear spanx and work it! Everyone told me I looked perfect! During our honeymoon, I was rushed to the hospital by an ambulance and hospitalized twice in the same week. I almost died! It was insane. I'm so happy I have this dress, because I think I may wear it when we take our second honeymoon, far in the future after paying off all of my medical bills!
Reviewer: roland (far-rockaway, new-york) 1/7/2015
nice and well fitted
I bought this dress in black and nude and it is so worth the money. I'm so glad I choose it for my upcoming wedding anniversary and I can't wait to wear it.
Reviewer: Carla Avila (Horizon, Tx) 12/9/2014
I ordered this dress in black. It arrived in 3 days and I couldn't have been happier with the fit. The cut truly complimented my curves and I received so many compliments. It's such a gorgeous dress, you will not be disappointed. It was worth every penny.
Reviewer: MG ( , ) 12/6/2014
This gown is STUNNING
I've been stalking this dress for a while now, and the Black Friday 30% off sale made it a no-brainer!! Even better, it's now available in a gorgeous, rich red. This dress has a beautiful cut, color, and drape to the heavy lace. The ONLY reason I am giving this quality dress 4 instead of 5 stars is because of sizing inconsistency. I ordered this in what should have been by the measurements a perfect fit, but it was extremely snug, unflattering, and a bit short. I went up a size and although it is now a bit big, it is preferable (and I can always have it taken in as needed). Also, I ordered mutliple colors to try on and noticed that the length was different in each garment. I think there are some quality control issues. All of that said, however, the styling and fabric on this dress is A+++. Bonus: the very nice garment bag included as a gift! That was a lovely (and very useful) surprise!! Bottom line: if this dress appeals to you, you can't go wrong. HOWEVER, if you have any doubts or are between sizes, size up and/or order both to see which is better on.
Reviewer: Onteaka D. Scott (West Memphis, Arkansas) 11/14/2014
LOOKING LIKE A MILLION BUCKS!!
I read every one of the reviews before purchasing this dress. It arrived in three days and it was nothing short of beautiful. The transformation was surprising as I looked 10 YEARS YOUNGER!! I simply could not believe it. My hair wasn't fixed or anything, but I was a knockout! I am 5'10", extremely busty with a large posterior. I bought the 3X and it is perfect! If you are thinking about buying this dress, just do it!! You will be glad that you did.
Reviewer: Maggie (El Paso, TX) 11/12/2014
Amazing dress! Modest and glamorous
I am so picky when it comes to formal wear. I can't do strapless, I can't do certain shapes because my body just doesn't look good in a lot of cuts. My friend suggested this site and this dress was on the main page and I immediately loved it. I am 5'10", weigh 235, waist is 38", hips are 49" and bust is 46". Also, I ordered the dress when I was 3 months pregnant and wasn't going to be wearing it until I was 4 months pregnant; I was hoping there was some stretch to the dress. Well, there is plenty of stretch, it sits beautifully in all the right places. Even though I am bottom heavy and small chested (for a plus size gal) it was lovely on me. The dress came all the way past my feet, and due to the length and weight of the material I didn't have to wear pantyhose; I just wore some high waisted tummy control spanx underneath and felt like a starlet all night. I love this dress so much, I wish I had a reason to wear it more!!
Reviewer: Nikole Lyles (WEST POINT, GA) 11/8/2014
I'm In Love!!!!
I received this dress in the mail today and the minute I tried it on, I knew it was the dress for me. The fit was perfect and it looks absolutely stunning on. It stands out from everything else I've seen. I can't wait to wear this.
Reviewer: Neecha Turner (Northport, AL) 11/6/2014
I absolutely ADORE this dress. I had a very bad experience when I purchased my wedding dress and ended up purchasing this dress as a back up in black. It fit my Old Hollywood Glam theme and it shocked people when I appeared in a black dress. I felt like the Queen of EVERYTHING! The dress fit perfectly! I just wish it had been a little longer, but this dress helped make our special day as unique as we are! I plan on buying this dress in a different color for other formal events. The lace is beautiful and I couldn't have asked for more.
Reviewer: Robin (, ) 10/29/2014
This is my first purchase from Kiyonna, but it won't be the last. I got the black/black version to wear to a wedding, and it is beautiful! I hesitate about buying a full-length dress because sometimes they look a little boxy on my frame, but this one accentuated my curves. The fact that there are no zippers or buttons was a plus, too. I'm 5'9", and the dress almost hits the floor. I'm glad I followed the recommendations of others!
Reviewer: Keiva (Southfield, Michigan) 10/23/2014
AMAZING!!! Right out of the box!
I ordered this gown for a gala as a last minute item because what I ordered was not going to arrive on time. It felt fantastic the first time I put it on, I just could not believe it. I received a lot of compliments on the gown and I felt amazing. Thanks, Kiyonna!
Reviewer: Michelle (Chicago, IL) 10/7/2014
They called me
I've got to admit, I was a doubter about this dress. My waistline is my problem area, so I always go with a dress that isn't tight anywhere below my bra line. But now I am a believer. I wore it as a bridesmaid and felt amazing all night. I received a million compliments. I only have one small problem: I am almost 6 feet tall and this dress stopped above my ankles. So it's not exactly a full length, floor sweeping dress for the tall ladies, but I rocked it anyway.
Reviewer: Alyssa (Jamestown, North Carolina) 10/2/2014
JUST BUY IT!
I had been looking for weeks for a black lace dress to wear for some family portraits. My daughters, being much smaller and younger than I, had no problems finding their perfect dress. When I accidentally fell upon this treasure, I jumped at it and am so glad that I did! I just received it last night and was pleased to see that it was very neatly hung on two hangers (one taking up the longest part of the dress) in a nice protective bag. I threw this beautiful thing on and BAM! I'm in love! The fit is gorgeous, the lace is perfection and the length even works well on my 5'11" frame! Do not waste a second thinking about another dress. This was my first purchase from Kiyonna, but it definitely won't be my last!
Reviewer: Karen Harper (Hendersonville, Tennessee) 9/22/2014
Love this Dress!!!!!!!
I bought this in the grey for my son's wedding and absolutely loved it! Everything I had seen for mother of the bride or groom was so matronly; however this dress - Oh my word. Right out of the box, I tried it on and it just fell over my body in the most amazing way. It was made just for me. The drape, the cut, the princess seams and skirt. My son and husband were in awe. At the reception, I had so many people come up and tell me how beautiful I looked. I truly felt beautiful. Thanks so much for such beautiful clothes!
Reviewer: kween bee (apo, AE) 9/21/2014
Beautiful Ball dress
I purchased this dress online for a military ball. It arrived very quickly and well wrapped. It was beautiful and extremely comfortable. I couldn't believe how comfy it was. I felt relaxed in it and danced all night long. I really loved it!
Reviewer: Angel (Norfolk, VA) 9/10/2014
I had to send my dress back because the lace around the neckline was loose and sloppy looking. It did not lay nice at all.
Reviewer: Vee (Washington, DC) 8/27/2014
This dress gave me LIFE honey! Yes! I was THE showstopper at my son's wedding (aside from the bride of course - wink). I received compliments from the church to the reception hall. This gown fit like a glove. My mom said "you look like a princess" (mind you I'm 43) I swear, this gown is EVERYTHING. My husband mentioned another baby seeing me in this gown (he's crazy). Screen "Siren" is definitely the appropriate name for this one. I felt fabulous & sexy in this one! Yes Ma'am!
Reviewer: molly (, Nebraska) 8/10/2014
I had bought a designer dress for my daughters wedding. Didn't like it so at last minute order this dress in black on black.. Elegant, stunning, very classy..I received so many compliments on how beautiful I looked all evening. Thank YOU!!
Reviewer: Mary-Jane McDonald (Rancho Cucamonga, California) 8/7/2014
Gorgeous, Glamorous Gown!!!!
I purchased this dress in all black to wear as a bridesmaid in my sister's wedding. The dress arrived quickly and came on a hanger in a protective dress bag. The dress is incredibly well made, with multiple layers and a thick lining. Despite the multiple layers, the dress is not hot. I tried it on for the first time and instantly loved it!!! I didn't even have any shapewear on and I still looked fantastic in it! In shapewear, I look even more fantastic! The dress does not have a zipper, so you slip it over your head (I am probably going to wear it to get my hair and makeup done so that I don't mess them up by pulling the dress over my head/face.) If I could wear this dress every day, I would - It is the garment that makes me feel the best about myself and my body in my wardrobe! I measured myself prior to ordering an the dress fit perfectly. It has enough give/stretch so that if you lose/gain some weight, it will still fit perfectly. I would highly recommend purchasing this dress for a formal event! It is gorgeous and totally worth the money!!!
Reviewer: Angelia D. Venero (Las Vegas, NV) 7/16/2014
Sound the Siren
For awhile now, I have been desiring this dress, I was waiting for a special occasion. Finally, I had the pleasure of wearing it on a cruise to the Captain's Dinner. The look was just as rewarding as the comfort and quality of the dress. All eyes were on me and believe me when I say, the Captain was saluting me and sirens were ringing. This dress was truly an "All Aboard" experience...all eyes were on on it and me!
Reviewer: Eugenia (Pooler, GA) 6/18/2014
This dress was worth purchasing. It is the perfect party dress. Heads are going to be turning when I enter the room.
Reviewer: jaavon collier (dalzell, SC) 6/13/2014
Just want to let you know you dresses are amazing. Everyone loved my dress, I was having such a difficult time finding something. I made me feel really beautiful in my curves. It was a perfect fit. Must be careful when handling the dress, because of the lace.
Reviewer: Scherri Morris (Jacksonville, Florida) 6/8/2014
This gown is absolutely beautiful. I bought it to wear to my brothers wedding and I made heads turn! I received so many compliments. It fits like a glove. The stretchy material makes it so comfortable and it has a thick skirt under the lace. It is worth every penny! It looks like a high class, extremely expensive gown. Buy Buy Buy. You will certainly be happy with your purchase.
Reviewer: Jeannine (Richmond, VA) 6/4/2014
Can't Beat It!
You can't beat this gown as it is pure perfection. The fit was amazing, it was comfortable and very flattering. I'm 5'4" and was worried about the hemline, but it needed no alterations. The hemline swept the floor beautifully. I received compliments all evening. This by far one of my best investments in clothing that I've ever made. Don't hesitate to get this gown. The dress arrived in a destroyed box thanks to the USPS. However, Kiyonna packaged the dress so well there was no damage at all.
Reviewer: Colleen (West Point, NY) 5/26/2014
I wasn't having any luck finding a dress to wear to a friend's wedding and then I came upon Kiyonna.com. I fell in love with the dress, but was worried it wouldn't fit right. Well, the fit was awesome and it is SO comfortable. I felt beautiful and sexy in it and I received so many compliments. The BRIDE even walked up to me and said "You look gorgeous!" That's just how amazing this dress is.
Reviewer: Adriana Serrano (Half Moon Bay, CA) 5/24/2014
Happy ever after
This dress fit so well, feels very comfortable and made me feel like a true Screen Siren. It had been awhile since I've needed a gown and was a little nervous not shopping in a store so I could try it on. I'm so thrilled with the purchase.
Reviewer: M.M. Daniels (Westchester County, NEW YORK) 5/18/2014
CLASSY & SEXY!
This dress is well worth the cost. I wore it to a Diamond Gala and the compliments and looks were OUTSTANDING! This dress complimented my curves and I felt BEAUTIFUL!!! I am so glad I purchased this lace gown. It runs true to size and is so STUNNING!
Reviewer: Seena (Mays Landing, NJ) 5/5/2014
I’ve been anxious this whole time waiting for my gown in the mail because I was not able to try it on before purchasing it. I was worried I would have to return it, but I won’t be doing that!!! I received it in the mail today and I couldn’t be more thrilled!!! The other reviews are TRUE! It is extremely flattering no matter what your shape is! I’m 5’5 and I have extremely large chest with a thick middle section. This dress DID NOT ACCENTUATE MY PROBLEM AREAS. I was also worried that it would have to be hemmed, but it’s perfect. This gown is amazing!
Reviewer: Lauren (Lakeland, FL) 4/13/2014
This dress has made me a Kiyonna fan for life. I thought there was no way it would ever look as good as it does in the pictures, but I was wrong. I feel like a million bucks in it. In case you're wondering as I was, the lining is very thick and high-quality; so it smooths while being stretchy and comfortable. I tried the nude first, but settled on the black one, since the dark lining did a better job of hiding my belly. I'm 5'7" and the dress just sweeps the floor. The lace is gorgeous, too.
Reviewer: Sherhea (Jacksonville, FL) 12/20/2013
This dress is the best purchase I've made in years! I bought the nude and black one and it is so beautiful. This is my first purchase from Kiyonna and I'm hooked. I received compliments from literally every single person at the office function I wore it to.
Reviewer: Heather Moore (Newport News, VA) 12/16/2013
Not the Best!
I fell in love with this dress online, but it was not what I expected. The dress is not nearly as pretty in person; it has too much strech, which made it a little clingy and the lace was so thin I was scared it would rip. Overall, I was not pleased, so I exchanged it for another dress.
Reviewer: Susan (Westport, Ct) 11/25/2013
More Colors Please!
This is a LOVELY gown; it fits well and flows nicely. PLEASE make this dress in more colors!
Reviewer: Katherine (Grand Rapids, MI) 11/13/2013
Do yourself a favor
I have a fancy Christmas party to attend for work and I knew I had to have a Kiyonna dress to wear to it. I had hoped to keep to the lower end of my budget, but when I saw this gown (not to mention it went on sale) I knew I had to have it. Do yourself a favor, if you have any place to wear this dress, order it now while you can. I just got it and tried it on. This is the most comfortable and flattering dress I have ever purchased. I am so glad I splurged and got it. I can't wait to wear it to my party next month!
Reviewer: Jenna (Salt Lake City, UTAH) 11/1/2013
gorgeous and surprisingly comfortable
I bought this dress in the gray color to go with season symphony/opera tickets because there's no bad excuse for buying a pretty dress! I couldn't believe how comfortable it is - no zippers or buttons. It's literally as comfortable as pajamas. The sleeves are not too tight and the shape is very flattering (I have an hourglass figure that's a little bigger on the hips than it is up top). I was right in between a 1X and 2X, so I ordered the 2X thinking that I could get it tailored if necessary; however, I don't think I'll need to. It's also a great length; standing in bare feet (5' 9"), it just skims the floor. This dress is perfect with a pair of kitten heels or even sparkly flats! The V-neck is sexy without being too risque and tasteful enough that I'd feel comfortable wearing it without a wrap or anything. I also really like that the back of the neck has a high neckline, too. The pattern of the lace stands out beautifully on the gray color. Overall, I love it!
