PEEKABOO LACE CAP SLEEVE DRESS
My New Favorite LBD!
I LOVE, LOVE this dress for several reasons. It has a fabulous shape for someone like me who has an hourglass, J-Lo type of body. I weigh 124 and my measurements are 34D-24-37. I bought a size 0 which fits perfectly. I always need the room for my hips but my waist is very small. This dress hugs me in all the right places. I cannot believe how incredibly flattering it looks.
The back is beautiful and even though I was concerned that I would have to wear a special bra, I did not have to. It is both sexy and very elegant at the same time. I love the V-shaped front...actually love any dress or shirt which is V-shaped since I find it to be the most flattering on any woman at any age.
The lace-covered inset is so beautiful and very delicate looking. I actually own black pumps with lace-covered insets which are coincidentally are a perfect match!
I don't find that Express offers dress options for people like me...hourglass...other than the "Fit and Flare" dresses which are way too wide on the bottom for me and makes me look larger. But this dress hits the mark in every single way because it is very much like a sheath dress (which I love but often can't wear), but it's a little wider at the bottom which works great for me.
A home run for my body type for sure! If it came in other colors, I would buy them ALL!

Very cute dress but...
I loved the look of this dress. On the screen, on the hanger... I love the cap sleeves, the neckline, the peekaboo lace. But I am average height (5'6) and the waistline hits a little over an inch ABOVE my natural waist... and I have a somewhat short torso for my height. WHY EXPRESS, WHY?! I really do not understand why you would make petite dresses and market them as regular.
If you are petite this dress will likely fit you beautifully. I really love it and was very sad to return it, but the high waistline (something I see in a lot of Express dresses, sadly) just made the fit weird on me.
The hip area is roomy like another reviewer said, but not in a bad way. I don't think this dress was designed to fit snug at the hips - it's more a cross between a pencil skirt and an A-line skirt.
For reference, 5'6, 120, size 2 fit me well (except for the high waist issue) - this is my usual size at Express.

Beautiful and Elegant
I love this dress! I think the material is very nice considering how much it costs and it has got personality, yet is something I can wear anywhere. I think it's the perfect dress to wear at a professional event, wedding, or even going out. I'd recommend a bright colored or glitter colored shoe for contrast.
