PLUNGING V-NECK METALLIC LACE DRESS
Good for small boobs
This is a very beautiful dress. However, as another reviewer mentioned, the lace doesn't stretch. I can even get my arms into the lace ok (I normally wear a 6 in express dresses and the 6 fit#, but at least put one arm in before putting the dress over your head. Rotating a two non-stretchy sleeves once the dress is on can be difficult. The neckline was fine, but there wasn't enough #non-stretchy# material in the bust area, smushing my boobs #I'm a 34D). If you are an A-B cup and don't mind reaching in the air or bending over for the night, this is a perfect night-out number.

Runs Small, Still Cute
I went to Express to buy this dress, after seeing it in the mailer, and was a little disheartened upon trying it on. After reading other reviews, it's nice to know other people had the same issue I did - it runs small. I'm typically a size 4 or 6, but I had to get a size 8 because, try as I might, it did not fit over my bust comfortably. I mean, the 6 fit, if I didn't feel like breathing all night. I deemed breathing important though.
Other than the fact that the dress runs small, I am pretty happy with it. It would be nice if it were a stretch lace, as a review before me stated, but it's flattering nonetheless and I can't wait to wear it for my birthday celebrations in a couple of weeks!

I wanted to love, but...
Unfortunately, this dress has to go back. This dress is beautiful on the hanger, but runs small and looks terrible on. Like another reviewer said, it is tight in the arms and across the back. This is mainly due to the fact that the lace doesn't stretch. I wear a size 6 in every other dress at Express and have never had an issue.The dress is also incredibly short. For comparison, I am 5'5", a 34DD, and between a size 4 and 6.

This is a very pretty black dress suitable for a sexy occasion.

Great on the Model. Rather Ick in Person
I went after this in the store after seeing it in a mailer. Besides being disappointed it only came in black (really -- how many black dresses could one own?), I was not impressed with the fabric whatsoever. It's a NON-stretch lace, making the sleeves ultra tight -- even for my slim arms. It also has what I would consider to be a rather cheap-looking shine to it.
The plunge is a great idea, but the execution here wasn't that great. I did like the plunge lace back. Also a bit short and ran up in the back in a way that made me just want to take it off. Fabric was a bit itchy as well. It is lined.
