pretty swank
I love this dress! The lace over the bandeau style is a combo of pretty and swank. I wouldn't usually show so much skin but the longer illusion hem covers up. It is really formfitting but the material is nice and thick. I am 5'4, 127llbs and the S fit me a bit tight but I wouldn't go up to a M. My only hesitation is the top is cut very narrow across the chest/shoulders and that part that squeezes out when you wear a strapless (where your bust meets your armpit I guess?) is not covered. This is only a problem area for some of us.

Very flattering, go-anywhere dress!
Very formfitting per the other review, but so easy and comfortable...and I got a lot of compliments! The fabric made this perfect for a festival with a chance of rain.

should have gotten the small
I should have looked at the other review from someone skinnier than me who said the small fit tight! I usually wear XS (I'm curvy but my waist is small-ish, 32C, 26, 36, 5'5")/ usually pick what the model is wearing even if her waist is smaller...I should have seen she is more straight-up-down..the XS fits but barely...a zipper might have been useful but this is a swimwear-type dress. I went smaller because I've had other Mara Hoffman stuff stretch out, but that was cotton...so in the long run this will probably be perfect! Better quality and more form-fitting than expected, be careful of letting your makeup transfer to it while putting it on!

Runs small for Mara Hoffman
This style is cut small to size, which is quite atypical for Mara Hoffman's consistent sizing. See model's pictures where a bulge is created by the cut-out. Ugh. I otherwise love the line of the shoulder and the gorgeous colors.

horrible fit
the top doesn't fit bust whatsoever. otherwise great, but not worth it.

Love Mara patterns, hate pockets
I love Mara Hoffman's patterns and designs. This return is my fault for not reading into the dress more- it has pockets which do not flatter my hourglass/pear body type. Ultimately returned.

Unique print and great quality of fabric
This dress is so unique I love how it falls in the back.... I really enjoy all of my dresses from Shopbop as they tell me where they are made. The fabric is such great quality!

Loved it, but didn't have my size
I tried to size up one size because my normal size was sold out and it was just too big in the bust and extremely long (which isn't a bad thing). It did look as pictured and probably would have fit well.

Construction Flaws on a Beautiful Dress
The dress is beautiful but the zippers are not sewn in well. I ordered two sizes and the zippers got stuck on both of them. Both dresses were returned, such a shame.

Print
Maybe I its just me, but I thought there was actual beading on this dress but the bodice is just a print.

Gorgeous summer dress
The print is lovely - bright but not overpowering, the fabric has a lot of body, which makes it less wrinkly than less substantial linens. I'm 5'6, 112 pounds, 32C and the 2 fit me perfectly. I wore it with a strapless bra, and the adjustable thin straps help the fit. I love the long length, but it's a graceful tea length, not maxi and floor-scraping. The only one this dress might not work for is someone with a large bust.

LOVE this dress
I wear a size C bra, so I can rarely wear a dress without a bra, but this dress is tight enough at the top + has adjustable straps so I can make it work! Plus, the cut outs are in exactly the right places to make you look thin. LOVE LOVE LOVE it!

Weird side zipper
This dress has a back zipper and also a side zipper on the "halter top" section. It was very odd and uncomfortable. Fit very small thru the bust.

This dress is beautiful. Even prettier than in the pictures. I ordered a size 2 instead of a 0 because I was afraid the top wouldn't be big enough (I'm a 34C). So glad I did as it's not stretchy and wouldn't have fit other wise. I can't imagine someone not loving this gown.

Love this dress in white!
Just ordered the white version of this dress for a trip to palm springs - so perfect. The material is linen and super light, the embroidery is so pretty. A great purchase! True to size.... Im usually a 4 and ordered a small and it fits great. Adjustable straps too.
