Great cocktail dress
The fit of this dress is excellent. I got a size 2 which is my normal size. The dress is very fitted but not too tight. Having a strapless design, the dress stays in place and doesn't slide down. The colour is in between purple and electric blue. The chiffon fabric is delicately draped all over the body of the dress without creating any extra bulk. Looks great with silver or nude pumps.

Sizing warning could have helped
I am normally a US Size 8, so when I saw this beautiful Marchesa dress for my wedding I immediately bought the US 10 thinking I could get my dress tailored in before the wedding so it would fit perfectly. Lucky I didn't get the 8 because I nearly cried as it hardly fit, the arm hole was TINY. So I exercised like mad for 2 weeks and tried on the dress again and still it looked horrible. I ultimately had to return the dress last week which was disappointing. Other websites state whether the size is true to form or if it is a small make, I saw on the tag of the dress that it is made in Korea which normally has smaller sizes. My chosen wedding dress is now a US 8 from Max Azria. This aside, my overall experience with Shopbop was AMAZING, customer service was brilliant and I received my parcel in 2 working days in DUBAI (world record I must say). I hope the refund/exchange process is as straight forward as the purchasing! I will definitely use shopbop.com again, thanks!

Dissapointed ...
I am 5'1 and weigh around 95 lbs. I am usually a size 0/2 so I got this dress in a size zero, thinking it might fit a little better considering the other review said it was smaller than expected. The dress was huge. If i wanted to have it altered it would have been $100 dollars worth of tailoring, the dress is expensive as it is. It is not flattering and the silhouette falls around the hips funny, making you look wider and thicker, and I'd never though I'd hear that considering my size. I understand that the ruffles may have flattened out while in transit but the dress came wrinkled. The lining was done shoddily and the lining seams showed trough the dress. Overall I was really disappointing with the purchase and sent it back right away - I am surprised Marchesa would try to pass off such a dress for $900.

The dress just feels great. It has been very easy to alter and looks even better in person.
