I love this dress! I am 5'1 135 pds and I went with the xs. The small fit fine but the xs felt more snug which I prefer. Great dress to accessorize and for curvy girls its a must.

This is a great, simple, go to black dress that you can dress up or dress down. I am tall (6 ft) with slender build and the medium fits well. It does ride up a bit so i was tugging at it....but i think that is because the spanx I was wearing sucked. Next time i plan to wear with stockings. I never wear long sleeve dresses, but the fabric of the dress is breathable... however, it is kind of thin...so unless you have a flat stomach and no love handles, you definitely need some sort of spanx or smoothing underwear. Got a ton of compliments on it. Def recommend.

This dress is soooo flattering! Absolute perfection! All six of the KamaliKultue pieces I ordered are just amazing. THey look so much more expensive than they were. The fit and quality is great. I did go up a size on the tighter fitting pieces, and I'm glad I did. I'm 5',5", 118lbs and I did small, instead of extra small. One piece had messed up stiching, but Zappos made the exchange so easy, as always. I will be living in these beautifully cut, machine washable, timeless pieces all year. I'm even tempted to by duplicates, I love them so much.

This dress is really pretty and very stylish. its super chic and simple and looks great on. The material is nice, although it does feel somewhat cheapy, but overall it's a beautiful dress that you can wear to many different types of occasions. Beware, though, that this dress is very snug and you might want to order a size up if you are in between sizes.

I'm rating that as a MATERNITY dress only. It is perfect for when you're big bellied!! It stretches to fit a full basketball and I wouldn't wear it as a non-pregger. But if you're looking for a knockout maternity dress look no further.

Norma Kamali's designs are lovely and lasting. They are comfortable to wear, versatile and changeable and can easily go from day to evening. Her fabrics are very good for travel. This dress is flattering. Stay in shape! It's body revealing, yet remains a class act.

So flattering! I was looking for a classy dress to wear to my best friend's wedding in January. It can be worn with or without tights, with open or close-toed shoes, & with or without chunky jewelry. The eggplant color is divine. It feels good on & looks great too!

I'm 5'9" and 155lbs. I tried both long and short sleeves in this dress in medium and large. Both sizes could have worked, I went for the medium because it gave it a bit more sexy edge. The large seemed to "mature" the look, and the neck gaped a teeny bit on the large. I also liked the sleeveless better. I just couldn't pull off the long sleeve look. The material is thin, but nothing spanx can't cure. Also, the ruching does camouflage the belly a bit. As long as the dress stands up to washings, I can see this remaining in my closet for a long time. This was my first kamalikulture dress, and I'll be trying more. Eggplant and Teal are great rich, colors too. Also, of course, Zappos is ridiculously awesome. No other online shop compares. Just wish they sold more items. Keep up the good work. Good variety. Great fashion. Wonderful customer service. Free shipping/Free returns. The best!

Perfect LBD. Sexy without showing lots of skin. The back side has gathers down the middle which really add to the sexiness. I had planned to wear to an event that I found out is more casual than I thought but I plan to keep this one in my closet for other events--too good to return at this price! :)

Loved this dress! I am 5'4" and it originally hit my right in the middle of my knee so I had to get it hemmed. The gathering at the back was great and made the dress hug my body without being too tight. I am 5'4" 105 pounds and the XS fit perfectly. I got many compliments.

Great dress. Fabric soft and comfortable, which is very important to me. Looks great, too. The shirred effect hides little body imperfections. Looks as good as more expensive dresses. Why spend more?

I wore this dress on New Years' Eve and had a great time - it is skimpy to be sure, but once you get used to the scrunches, it fits very well. The color is great, and the neckline is great for jewelry.

Brands I'd also recommend: Nick and Noe

Love this dress! It's very body con! I am wearing to a wedding, my first outing after having a baby. This dress is very stylish and flattering. The ruching hides any imperfections and the cut of the skirt is very nice, tight but not clingy at all. I feel very confident in it.

I just ordered this dress last night and it showed up at my doorstep in the morning. Fell in LOVE with this dress the minute I put it on. I am not a real girlie girl but am trying to venture out and look a little more professional than my normal attire of active wear. Two rules for my closet. Must be easy to wear and functional. this dress is wonderful! I am usually a size 4, 32B chest and I went with a small. So comfy.

I love this dress. The material and design is really forgiving of some lumps and bumps you may want to hide. :) Very pleased with the dress. It is on the expensive side, but I feel it will last for some time and keep the integrity of the material.

This dress is a very nice quality material. My opinion is that it runs slightly small so I sized up to a large. There is no risk ordering from Zappos. I had quite a few different style dresses sent to me and the return is as easy as the purchase.

Love it. I think it will fit most shapes very nicely, a lightweight soft fabric...and love the lacy pattern! I ordered two of the sleeveless as well, in red and one in black. I am just waiting for the L/S shirred waist to come back in my size other patterns...love this dress! They need more patterns and more size mediums!

I love this dress! It's form-fitting but still very flattering because of the fabric and the ruching. The length is appropriate for work, but the dress is also sexy. I bought this dress in two colors and also the sleeveless version in two colors. Great dresses!

This has a pretty neckline and the eggplant color is gorgeous. I am 5'6", and the medium fit ok through the body, and the sleeves are comfortably form-fitting. I hoped it would hit just below knee length, but the gathers bring it above my (ugly) knees, so I am sending it back. Too bad, because otherwise it was very pretty.

Bought this to wear to the office holiday party. I wanted a long sleeve LBD - was tired of my old one. Wore it with soft black riding boots. Dress is very comfortable and looks good. Fabric is stretchy and doesn't cling too much - it's quite forgiving and the shirred waist helps. It's a bit longer that what I would have liked, but will try it with dress sandals next time.
