I love the Desert Rain Maxi!
I love this dress so much that I bought it in black, teal and purple! I would buy more of them if they came in more colors I like, such as hot pink, a pink floral print, black lace, gold lamé, gunmetal metalic or bright turquoise. This dress and the Tiers of Joy dress are my go-to dresses for events where I want to look glam. The v-neck is very flattering and enhances the bust-line. THis Maxi also has a-line shaped and goes in at the tummy so it creates a really great shape. It's pretty long, but I usually wear it with Louboutins, so that's ok. Overall, this is a great dress! Please make it in more colors so I can buy more of them!

Cute AND comfy.
This dress is incredibly flattering (especially the raspberry wine color, I don't think it's possible for anyone to look bad in it), so soft without being overly clingy and it's like being able to get away with wearing pajamas in public. I'm 5'9", 4x, not very busty and the length is great. My only beef is that the neckline slips a little, but I have this problem with almost everything. I would love to see this in a deep teal or a subtle print with a contrasting waistband.

Too Informal To Wear To A Wedding
I am 5'7 (225 lbs.) and wear a size 1X-2X, depending on the manufacturer. I actually just purchased this dress for my brother's wedding and I am not pleased with it, but it is too late to order something else, as the wedding is in a few days. It was my first time ordering from Kiyonna and even though I am shaped like the model, the sizing runs BIG!!! I bought this in a 2X and I could have ordered the 1X; this dress is generously cut and might have needed some altering. The dress is of very informal cotton knit material and in my rush to buy something, I didn't realize this. I would have liked this dress so much more if it had been in a poly-blend material - to make it look dressier. I would not recommend this dress to anyone planning to attend a semi-formal to formal wedding event. The bust area is exceedingly generous and even though I am a 38 DD, it is falling off my chest. I am lucky that I am a crafty girl with super-seamstress skills with a sewing machine or else I'd be even unhappier.

First of all, I'm 5'10" and this dress was just about long enough for me. I couldn't have made it work with heels, but a pair of cute flats and I would have been good to go. Finding maxi dresses that are actually a maxi length is a near-impossible challenge for me. Unfortunately, I'm also a G cup. There was absolutely no way that I could go out in public wearing this dress as the wrap neckline was WAY too low. Overall, I think this is a cute dress and that it is well made, which is to be expected of Kiyonna. This dress will probably work best for someone who is an inch or two shorter and a bit less well endowed than I am.

I have purchased this dress for my son's wedding. It arrived today and I couldn't wait to try it on. It fits perfectly and feels great. I'm able to move, sit, stand comfortably and am incredibly pleased with the quality. You've gained a new customer. Thank you!!
