Chiffon Skirt Bandage Dress
DO NOT BUY THIS DRESS
First let me start off by saying that I am an avid customer at BEBE. I adore their clothes and ordinarily wear a size XS. I ordered this dress in a size S just to be cautious as it is a bandage dress. I'm glad I did because the small was the right fit - I probably wouldn't have even been able to zip up an XS and I am 5'5" and 120lbs.
This dress is gorgeous and looks phenomenal on the model, but in person is a different story. The dress material is thick and what I expected, but the zipper is a mess. I felt like the zipper was going to break as I tried to zip it up and even zipping it was such a battle because the zipper is CHEAP.
THEN, once I had the dress zipped, the zipper didn't even lay straight, it pooches out and makes weird rolls and bumps in the material, nothing like the sleep fitting sides on the model in the picture. I thought perhaps that the dress was simple not adjusted correctly, but after 10 minutes of trying everything imaginable I concluded that this was not the case. I am SO disappointed in this product. This is the first time I've ever had an issue with a BEBE dress, not to mention that because it is a final sale I'm stuck with a dress I can't even wear and for about $119 with shipping included.

Beautiful dress, horrible zipper
The dress is gorgeous, the material is a thicker material that hugs your body. Unfortunately the zipper is the problem. It is a side zipper which I always hate, because I usually zip my skin in it. This particular zipper is cheap and almost impossible to zip up or down. It took me forever to get it to move and finally I gave up and took the dress off. I decided to keep the dress despite the zipper and take it in to the tailor and have them put in a decent zipper. The flow of the material is fabulous. I take a size medium in all Bebe clothes, in case anyone else is looking to purchase this dress. Good luck.

My husband gave me this dress last night and I loved .
The only problem with this dress is the zipper and it runs one size small . The zipper is fragil and gets stuck when I tried to close.
