Only if you're stick thin
This dress is really pretty and the convertible feature is great and all, but you have to be VERY thin to wear this. I usually wear a 4 or a 6, and couldn't breathe in either size in this dress. I ordered up to an 8, but it wasn't any wider...just taller. Like most Joanna August dresses, you need to be about 6 feet tall and thin as a rail to look good in this.

Horrible
This dress is terrible and completely unflattering. The cut is totally weird, and made me look flat as a board even with a push up bra on. Don't buy!

A lot of chest
I shouldn't be surprised, but this fit me (on top) much like it fits the model, and for me that's just too much (flat) chest. I didn't think that it would be a problem, but it just wasn't flattering. I'd imagine someone with larger bust would not be comfortable in this. It's a pretty color and well made, I just couldn't get past the way the top fit.

Lovely but long
The dress has a great fit and it's beautifully executed but it is very long so for 5'7" + high heels I will still have to cut it of a few inches before I could comfortably wear it. Colour wise it's always more grey than in the pictures but still lovely.

Very pretty dress
Very pretty dress, nice quality, good cutting, just the chest area doesn't fit me too well.

Weird Fit
Got this as a potential reception dress for my wedding. It was very low cut and just looked weird. Not sure who this would look good on aside from a model.

More off White than White
I love this dress. I bought this as my wedding dress for my backyard wedding in May. I love the simple-ness to the dress but still wedding appropriate. It's very flowy and the wrap feature is great so I can adjust the size of the dress as I (hopefully) continue to lose weight. I feel beautiful in it and I can't wait to wear it.

Beautiful!
This dress looked even more beautiful on. I'm only 5'4" and needed to get it hemmed....it is VERY long. But once hemmed it was gorgeous! My husband loved it. It's a bit open in the front but tastefully open. The dress is also very comfortable. I wore it to a fundraiser Ball and no one else had anything like it on.....I was very happy!

Lovely and sweet!
I purchased this dress to wear as a bridesmaid. My sister wanted a pink/blush color scheme and the 'Tiny Dancer' color fit the bill beautifully- it's a delicate, soft pink. The chiffon fabric feels light, though the satin lining might feel a bit heavy in warmer weather (& especially due to the length of the dress.) The Medium fit felt TTS in the upper body (I also tried this dress in a Small in a store and although it 'technically fit', it did not feel comfortable and I felt like my girls would bust loose with any sudden dance moves (so perhaps best to order up). I did need to have the dress hemmed by, oh, I don't know, a yard! J/K but because I'm 4'11", i needed a good 10 inches lopped off., DESPITE my sky-high heels. I also needed the straps taken in a bit. (For more fit reference, I have an athletic build, broad shoulders, 110lbs, 6-8 in dresses.) If you like romantic looks, you will love the delicate ruffle detail that adorns this frock. Soft and pretty!

It's okay.
I had to buy a Joanna August dress as a bridesmaid and I pretty much hated the way they all fit. This one is the best one I could find, and I'm not crazy about it. the top is large and flaps open which is really annoying. ALL Joanna August dresses are pretty much made for models who are 6 feet tall and super skinny. And the sizing is completely erratic. This wrap style is a little easier to deal with than the fitted styles, but I would NEVER invest in any of these dresses if not for the fact that I had to. Definitely not worth the price plus the inevitable alterations. For reference, I am 5'5" and 125 lbs.

Classic
I had a very small, intimate wedding this past Summer and bought this to wear as my wedding dress. It was absolutely perfect! Beautiful material, soft, flowy and fits true to size. It hugs in the right places and flows where it's supposed to. I am 5'6, 145lbs for reference. I had an outdoor ceremony and this dress was perfect for the occasion.

Dani Maxi Dress
I purchased this item, as a bridesmaid for a friend's upcoming wedding. The dress is beautiful. It is VERY long and was a little snug in the breast area. I ordered a size small, am 5' 4", 130 lbs, wear a 34-C. Even with 4 inch heels, it was definitely going to need to be hemmed. It is very well made and has an incredible silk lining. I ended up returning it, as the bride decided we would each wear a different Joanna August style and I personally liked another style better. This was my only reason for returning the dress.
