Perfect for Pear-shaped bodies
I desperately wanted to make this dress work with my body type. It's truly a gorgeous design and the only one I fell in love with out of the 3 dresses I ordered for an upcoming formal event. I have an apple-shaped body with a pronounced abdomen and what I think is a long-ish torso. I measured myself according to the size chart and ordered the 1x. It was a perfect fit, except the abdomen was a little tight. The narrow band that gives the dress shape is flattering if your bust is significantly bigger than your abdomen. It doesn't show in the model and real curves pictures, but, from a side view, it will highlight the swell of your abdomen. I looked pregnant. PROS: Beautiful dress, gorgeous color, does not look cheaply made; elastic material. Very comfortable to wear, design makes you feel and look elegant; easy to accessorize and hides upper arm problem areas CONS: Empire waist design has the tendency to make you look pregnant if you are an apple-shape body type I ordered the 1x and 2x both in teal and it really sucks that I will be returning both. This is one dress that I want to try on again after I trim some more belly fat.

Best Dress Ever!
I bought this dress over a year ago and I've worn it about 10 times! It's so flattering and it gives the bustline a really nice v-shape. It goes in at the waist and flows over the bottom half. This and the Desert Rain Maxi are the two most flattering dresses I've ever bought from Kiyonna. I am buying them up in every color I can find! I've never bought dresses off the rack that fit, flatter and look as sexy as these dresses.

Makes a great maternity dress
I'm 8 months pregnant and needed a dress to wear to a wedding. Finding plus size maternity formal wear is not so easy. This dress looks and feels really great. I was so comfortable and didn't find it necessary to wear any body shapers underneath. The drape and fabric of the dress is really flattering.

Beautiful Dress Becoming to Many Sizes
The description of this dress says that it is becoming to any shape and I have to agree. It's a remarkably comfortable dress that will accommodate you amazingly. For example, I don't have to wear a body shaper unless I want a smoother profile; the dress fits just fine either way. The lace is nice, but it is the color beneath that makes it most interesting. Do NOT size up on this dress; too much fabric makes the lace bunch up over the lining so you cannot see it and turns the dress into something very dark and bulky. I, also, needed to wear a black bra that worked with the low v-neck, but did not need to wear a slip. This is a beautiful dress, but the amount of lace makes it sort of bulky to pack for travel unless you squash it down.

I bought this dress to where out to dinner for my 35th anniversary! It arrived well-packaged and in a plastic wrap on a hanger. The color was true to the picture; it is a knit kind of fabric with a bright magenta color underneath with a black lace overlay with shear sleeves. This dress just slips on over your head and does not wrinkle, making it great to travel with. The v of the neck line is low as pictured, however, I wore a black lace bra that would not really be noticed if it peeked out a little. It does need a slip underneath and is below knee length on me (I am 5'6"). This dress is very comfortable to wear and very flattering; I felt beautiful and sexy while wearing it.
