Party Stunner
Clover Canyon is newly becoming one of my favorite designers, and this dress showcases exactly why. Firstly, the photos do not do the intricate pattern and colors of this dress justice. The way the patterns are placed on the dress make it EXTREMELY flattering - there is a line right by the high waist, accentuating that small part, and the design in the back is very slimming. Secondly, the fit of the dress is impeccable. The neoprene fabric is hugging and slimming without being too tight (albeit I do think the fit is a little smaller than some other designers on here). This is an extremely flattering dress that would be perfect for a holiday party.
Sizing: Smaller than Expected

Kind of a Blah Dress
Eh this dress is just okay. Fit and quality are fine. The design is a little unflattering with the large black blocking in the front of the dress by the bust area. Maybe if this one goes on sale it'd be a more desirable purchase....
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

Not for anyone conscious of their hips
Although the quality of this skirt is very nice, particularly considering the price point, the fit was ill-conceived (at least for me). I have a skinny waist and large hips/backside, and even for my waist, I found the waistband to be very tight on this skirt. Additionally, because the waistband is so narrow, there is a lot of probability of muffin topping overhang. The skirt is also MUCH more voluminous than pictured, which just added more volume to my already voluminous enough backside. Needless to say, this was returned. Instead I bought the House of Harlow cutout leather skirt for a similar look with less volume.

Shapeless sack
I think the title of this review explains it all. This dress is a shapeless sack and will do nothing for your figure.
Sizing: Larger than Expected

Not for me.
LOVE the print on this (as I do with most Mara Hoffman suits) but this suit was just not flattering on my girls! I have a 36C and it really just smashed my breasts in -- there is absolutely no support (no cup or anything). Also, when I took off the halter strap, the material would roll down -- definitely without the halter I felt like I would risk a wardrobe malfunction. It's a shame too because the design is so flattering -- the concentration of color right by the waist is really complimentary on the body. Perhaps for someone with smaller breasts?

Did not work for me.
Was so excited to receive this in the mail - I LOVE Mara Hoffman's prints, and particularly this one, but the fit is just off. The top is really comfortable, but really smashed my breasts in -- there was no support and made me look completely flat chested (I'm a 36C). Tightening the straps didn't help. While I LOVED the back and the double strap, the massacre it did on my breasts made me have to return it. Perhaps it would work for someone more flat chested? I don't know.

Not a good look
This top is really cute on the model, but in person it's shorter, tighter, and extremely thin and see through. It just seems to be of very poor quality, and looks nothing like it does on the model.

Returned this one
I ordered a size up and STILL found the dress to be extremely clingy on my hips. Definitely avoid if you are on the curvier side -- it will just make you look huge.

Great LBD
Had my eye on this dress for some wintertime weddings for awhile, and was a little deterred by the prior reviews, but ordered it anyways. I think it is extremely flattering, particularly if you are curvier and size up. Based on previous reviews I ordered a size up (large instead of my usual medium) to accommodate the length and my athletic/curvy hips and thighs, and I found that really helped. I will probably get it altered a little bit to nip in the waist a bit more, but I didn't have a problem with the dress gaping under the arms (I'm a 36C). I could see that may be a problem if you were a bit more flat chested. All in all I think I'll get a lot of use out of this dress and will definitely be wearing it to some winter events.
