Cool but overpriced w/thin material
Sizing: one of the reviewers said the dress runs big...I disagree I think the dress runs small. I'm typically a 0/2 or XS in dresses and I'm a 34B (barely a B) and I couldn't even zip up the dress. Also, I'm 5'3" and with 6" heels on the dress was still at least 4" too long so it will need to be tailored. Also, I'm petite and the top part was still rather short on me. Material: the leather is thin which makes it feel cheap, which one of the other reviewers had stated. The polyester is also thin and at first glance I thought it would be see-through but it doesn't appear to be. Also, the hem is crooked although that appears to be the design. All in all the dress isn't worth $483 IMHO; however, I had been looking for a dress exactly like this after seeing it on TV once so I'm going to try the S and see if I like it. I do like the style, especially the little ruffle at the waist so I'm willing to pay the price to ensure it doesn't sell out in my size.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Unique, long but tailorable...
Let me start by saying this dress is unique and amazing. When I had it on at the tailors I got compliments from the employees and customers. Fit: I'm 5'3", 122 lbs (muscular / curvy build), I typically wear an XS but I bought a S so the dress wouldn't be fitted. I wear a 34B and I'm shaped like Jennifer Lopez. The dress was WAY too long even with 6" heels on it was 1-2" too long so I took it to a tailor I know is good to be altered. What I asked them to do was remove the lace at the top where it attaches to the dress and pull it up and reattach so none of the detail on the bottom of the dress would be affected. The dress shouldn't be altered at the shoulder because the darker coverage area would be too short and the neckline woudl be too high but it can be altered. Also, due to the way I'm shaped I had to have the top and sides brought in even though it fit well through the hips. Also, tailoring was $75. Still it's worth the price.

High quality unique dress
This is the perfect dress for a special occassion (e.g., New Years), since the shape is reminescent of a flapper. The fit is fantastic for any body shape since the cut is meant to graze the body but not cling anywhere. The quality is as expected from Parker, the sequin appear to be theaded together so there is a much smaller chance of them falling off then there is when they are sewn on individually. The colors are the same in person as on the website. And the dress has good weight to it, it's not too heavy but it's definately not flimsy. I am 5'3", 120 lbs, and I bought an XS, which was TTS. Even at my height the dress is a bit short, probably 5 to 6" above the knee, so that's something to keep in mind if you are signifcantly taller. I also tried on the S in Saks and the length was about the same.

Not for everyday...
For reference I am 36, 5'3", 120 lbs, and have what I assume is an average size head for my size. I can't wear women's hats (e.g., fedora) because they are too big. I can wear a youth/womens baseball hat as long as it is adjustable. Also I have dark brown hair. Pros: The band has some elasticity as well as an adjustable strap so it should fit just about anyone. The elasticity is very subtle so the item is not too tight when you are wearing it and the rhinestones don't dig into your head. Although the headband doesn't appear to slip I would recommend using bobby pins to secure it in place just in case. When wearing as a headband, the rhinestones are long enough that the black band is not visible. Works well with dark hair. Cons: The quality is not consistent wih the $125 price tag. The rhinestones are very flimsy and lightweight in your hand, which gives the impression that they are cheap. The headband is very dressy. It would really only look right at a wedding or prom

Soft and Beutiful
I love this dress. I'm 5'3" and I usually wear a size 2 in a dress and a S in Pencey Standard; however, this dress ran a little tight so I had to size up to a M which fit perfectly. I'm shaped like Kim Kardashian and the S fit like a bodycon dress, particularly in the back. Someone without those "curves" will probably be able to wear their regular size. The dres falls to my knee. The material is a soft cotton which feels like you are wearing PJs and it's made with two layers of fabric so it's not see-through. Also, the fabric underneath does not align with the fabric on top so you get very light floral designs that you can see through the top layer. If you zoom in you can see it online. I think that makes the dress more interesting...visually. Because the dress is made with two thick layers of fabric if you get the right size it grazes the skin perfectly and should hide any problem areas.

Beautiful color...perfect fit
I'm 5'3", I wear a 34B and a size 2 or 4 depending upon how I want the garment to fit; I bought the S. I can wear it with 6" platforms and the length is perfect although it might be worth hemming so I can wear it with shorter heels. The dress fits me exactly like it does on the model with a perfect fit on top and slightly larger on the bottom. There is a little bit of a gap in the back at the top of the skirt (near my lower back). I thought about getting an XS but I'm not sure it would fit because the top fit exactly right. You can't see down the dress but it doesn't sit flat like it does on the model. The dress is also slightly see-through so flesh colored undergarments is required. Overall the dress is beautiful. The front is conservative, the back is sexy, and the color just pops. I am so pleased with this purchase.

Comfortable but sexy
I am 5'3", a size two on top, and a size four on the bottom. I'm shaped like Jennifer Lopez. I bought the size S and it fits perfectly. I bought the dress in blush originally which I would give four stars. I liked it so much that I bought the green which deserves four and a half stars. The drapes cover all of the areas that many women would like to cover (e.g., stomach, butt, thighs); disguising them and distracting the eye. I'm not particularly fond of showing off my "assets" and the drape does a nice job of drawing the eye away. All in all the dress fits like a glove (but not uncomfortably so like a bodycon dress would). The material is really soft and comfortable and it feels like the Egyptian cotton sheets you can buy. The only con, if I would call it that, is that the blush is completely see-through. You have to buy flesh colored undergarments and if you have any tattoos you will be able to see them through the parts of the dress where there is no draping.

Very Flattering
I love this dress! I am 5'3" size 0/2 on top and a 2/4 on bottom depending upon the brand. I got a size S and it fits perfectly. It isn't baggy but it doesn't hug my body either which I was afraid of. I'm fairly muscular and sometimes have problems with my biceps being too large but I didn't have a problem with this dress. Pros: The material is really soft and comfortable and it feels like you are wearing PJs. The drapes are in all the right places so it should cover any problem areas (e.g., belly, hips, thighs, butt). I'm shaped like Jennifer Lopez / Kim Kardashian and the drape in the back covers the back perfectly. Cons: I bought the blush and the material is completely see through. I have a couple black tattoos, which luckily are covered by my hair or one of the drapes in the dress otherwise you would be able to see them perfectly. If you are worried about the color I would suggest the green. But the dress is worth it. It feels and looks great.
