It lived up to its name, Retro Glam Lace Dress.
I was looking for a dress to wear to my niece's wedding and I purchased the Retro and the Scalloped Boudoir Lace Dress. Both fit perfectly, but the Retro with the purple underlay just said party. I never feel good in a dress but this dress was so different; it had romance, glam and old world sexiness. I am in my sixties, and never have I worn a dress that flattered my full figure as this one did. I choose not to wear the belt with the brooch, as I had other jewelry I wanted to showcase.

Most flattering and comfortable dress ever!
I purchased this dress for my step-daughter's wedding in June. The dress fit amazing and was so flattering. I received so many compliments. The neckline and sleeves were very flattering and the sash and broach were a very elegant touch as well. You could easily wear without the sash as well. The fabric was so soft and comfortable and incredibly light-weight. The lining provided more than enough coverage to conceal bra straps. I am pretty tall at 5'11, the dress hit perfectly right at my calf. The dress overall was amazing, elegant and looked incredibly sexy! I highly recommend, you will not be disappointed.

Ignore the bad reviews- AWESOME dress!
Ok, I'll be honest. I was VERY concerned about ordering this dress with the poor reviews some left on it. I understand some of the comments more- but overall, this dress is FANTASTIC. 1. YES the broach has a flimsy, thin backwire- it's not from a fine jewelry store so duh. If you try and poke it through more than one layer of the sash at a time, it will bend! So go through one layer at a time and it's fine. If there is a bend in the back straight arm of it, it will not stay secured, so make sure it is straight and not bent. 2. Cheap fabric? NO. Do not confuse the fact that this is a light weight, stretch lace with thinking it is cheap fabric. It is a stretchy lace- which means it is not your typical 'crunchy' lace. It's soft and plyable which is helpful to those of us who are not tiny ladies. 3. HOLY COMFORTABLE! This dress has stretch, retains its shape, the fabric is soft and rather sensual. You WILL see pilling or fraying of the lace if you do not wash on delicate- you're spending over $100 on this dress- dry clean it if you want it to last. DUH. 4. SO Flattering! The way the fabric drapes delicately can be unforgiving for those of us who suffer from some extra rolls... BUT light weight SPANX underneath solved that problem immediately. The fabric is pretty forgiving, but if you opt for some kind of 'shaper/smoother' underneath- you'll love it even more. Bottom line, BUY IT. It is worth the money and you will feel fantastic in it!

I love everything about this dress! I ordered a size 5 and it looked as though it was tailored especially to fit me! I have a 70 in bust and I was 100% relieved to find such a tastefully done lace dress for my big day. I would recommend this dress, it was fabulous.

This Might Be Okay-For You
I just received this dress today. The brooch is unacceptable, it came loose. I wouldn't say broke because I was able to bend it back into shape, and pop it back in. If this is a common occurrence, then it's not acceptable to wear. Just trying to put the brooch through the sash is what did it. The fabric is comfortable. It feels more like comfortable loungewear rather than a dressy outfit. Don't get me wrong, it's beautiful, but it just feels like a nightie. It was really big on me. I followed the measurement guide. This may be because of me though since I am actively trying to lose weight, so maybe I did go down a size. I'm short. The length on me is mid-calf. The sleeves are huge. I feel like I'm going to fly away. My bust is small. I'm a pear shape. I will have to get this dress sized to me in the bust because it is just not keeping the girls covered. I keep having to pull it up. Part of the reason that I ordered it is because it looked reasonably modest. I gave it a 3/5 because it may meet some people's expectations, but unfortunately, it didn't meet mine.
