OPEN BACK SHEATH DRESS
Great Simple Dress
I bought this dress in Vegas because I was going to a club and needed something to wear. I found this dress and fell in love with it. Great dress to look and feel sophisticated and sexy. This dress fit very nicely.

I previously wrote a bad review on this dress. The dress runs large. I went in and exchanged a size 4 for a size 2 and it is much more flattering! I am 5'2" and about 123 lbs. You definitely need to have hips and a thin waist for the most flattering fit. I do not have a thin waist nor do I have hips and wish the dress would show less of my love handle and muffin top. But it's not too bad and the black makes me look thinner even though it does show my flaws.

Not exactly what I Thought it would be
I ordered the dress online and the shipment was great! It arrived within two days of shipping, which I really appreciate. I love Express but this dress did not do justice for me. I recommend trying the dress on at the store. You might find it a pleasant fit.
I am 5'2", 123 lbs, and I ordered a size 4. The straps were not flattering on my shoulders. Well one side was fine, but on the right side, there was a gap between my chest and the strap, and you can see my bra strap. But that would not be necessary if I actually wore this out. You must wear a bra that is not see in the back since your back will be showing. If you were a regular bra, the back of the bra will be seen. But still, the straps were not flattering and I felt like the straps were going to fall off my shoulder because they were so loose on me.
I am a shorter person and this dress hit me at a modest length, about 1-2 inches above my knee. The bottom half of the dress was not very flattering to me. I would prefer it to be tighter.
Overall, I think I just bought the wrong size. I really do think it can be flattering. I will be returning the one I ordered and hopefully a 2 will fit me better. I do like the simplicity of the dress and the material is not cheap, as you know Express.

Perfect dress that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. The open back gives it that extra sexiness without being too revealing. Snugs in all the right places. Definitely will get the use out of this dress since you will be able to wear it more than once; which is nice for me since that's typically what I do.
