LACE HEM FIT AND FLARE DRESS
I love this dress, it was exactly what I was looking for!

Too See Through!
I wanted to try on this dress despite the mixed reviews. I think it fits pretty true to size, I'm 5'4"/129/34A and vary between a 4 and a 6 so I ordered both sizes and the size 4 fit best so if you are in-between sizes go down. I didn't like that the dress was see-through and looked weird at my rib cage, not flattering. I also wish that the neckline scooped more and that the white at the bottom behind the lace was shorter so that the black lace is exposed (as shown in the 4th picture on the blonde model). The bottom could easily be hemmed but I don't like the dress overall enough to make the simple change. Like the idea not the execution, a thicker fabric or lining would solve the transparency issues. This dress would probably look better in other colors, maybe reverse these and make the dress black with white trim and lace - or even all black!

Perfect fitting dress
I ordered this online thinking it'll never fit because I'm a 38D, some may even say DD. It fit my bust like a champ with no uncomfortable tightness to squish the girls down. I purchased it for an outdoor July wedding on an island on Lake Erie. I think it will be perfect for the hot humid Ohio weather. It hits right above the knee. It's very fluid so it's a great dress for dancing. I'm so glad I took a chance on this dress. It is super flattering for size 12-14 girls with bigger chests. I ordered size 12. It does run a bit large because normally I'd be a 14.

Cute dress but sheer fabric
Cute dress. I wear a 34C and went with the size 2 dress, but is definitely snug around the bust. However, when I tried on a 4 in the store I was swimming in it, so I had to stick with the 2. I'd suggest trying it on before purchasing, if possible.
The dress has a conservative neckline and hits just above the knee, so it's not too short. Wear with a cute belt and you're all set for a summer party, and easily add a sweater if you need covered shoulders for the workplace.
ONE CAUTION - The material is quite sheer, so you can see the seams in the lining, especially if the dress fits you snugly (as mine does). It's not a problem unless you really hate that for whatever reason. But definitely wear a skin-tone bra underneath and take the time to straighten out any wrinkles in the lining before leaving the house.

This dress is super cute, and has a very flattering shape. It hits a bit above the knee.
The material is very sheer, though, so you can see the seams in the lining. Make sure you wear a skin toned bra and straighten out the lining when you put in on. If you're handy with a needle and thread or you know a tailor, put in a couple stitches tacking the lining to the outer part of the dress s that it wont bunch, and then you'll be good to go.
The waist runs a little large. I have a 36" bust and a 26" waist and usually wear a size 2. The bust fit perfect, but the waist had a couple inches of extra room.
