Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wide angle Dress is dowdy and not flattering. As a petite, it made me look like a munchkin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning night on the town This dress looked gorgeous on. Unfortunately it was too small in the bustline for my daughter-in-law. I wish it had been available in a woman’s size. I would still recommend this beautiful dress, because it looked lovely on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Velvet dress Perfect fit with the exception of the sleeves being a bit tight in the back shoulder. Very flattering style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect dress Bought this beautiful dress for my daughter. It is one of my best purchases. This dress looks magnificent on her. The fit is perfect. Can’t say enough good about it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very poor quality I was so excited to finally find a gorgeous black velvet dress--I have been looking for years and years! Imagine my disappointment in this disaster--scratchy, poor quality fabric that doesn't even deserve to be called velvet, thin, barely lined. So incredibly disappointed. I have a Talbots dress from thirty years ago in heavy, decadent silk velvet, fully lined, which couldn't be farther from this disaster. Hugely disappointed in Talbots. I can't believe they have the presumption to put this up for sale, especially at that price!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Velvet dress Although I am short waisted this dress for curiously short in the bodice. The whole thing was strange. But the worst part is that it was delivered in a bag!! A velvet dress, crumpled, the nap crushed. It looked like it had been worn and thrown in a heap! Its def going back. Even if it fit properly, I couldn't wear it in its present condition.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice cut, terrible fabric Dress is well cut and fit perfectly. However, the fabric feels like cardboard and has absolutely no “give”. When I stretched my arms forward I was afraid the dress would tear. Sent it back

Questions

Does the horizontal seam on this dress sit at or above the normal waistline?

Asked by: JeanieG
On me the seam sits above the waist. I'd really like to know how it fits other people, as I'm not sure whether this aspect is flattering to me. If a high-waisted look is actually intended as a fashion statement I won't feel so hesitant, as the dress is otherwise just what I wanted.

Do I need to size up since it’s fitted and velvet, or does the dress have any stretch?

Asked by: Cheryl
I sized up.  Partly because I'm sort of between sizes, but also because the velvet has no stretch.  I could make the 14 work if I had to, but the 16 is more comfortable. This dress is beautiful on.  It would be perfection if it had a bit of stretch.

What is the waistline like? It's impossible to tell from the photos. Does the "flare" come from the normal waistline or below it? Please explain.

Asked by: Mignonne
It flares out below the waistline. Fit and flare is a standard dress type.
