Lace Body Contrast Sleeve Dress
This dress makes me feel and look beautiful!
I am so happy with this dress! I am 5'8", 148 lbs, am small 34b. I normally try not to pick on my body too much but I thought I'd be honest about a few flaws because the dress concealed and flattered so well! I have somewhat "flabby" arms, gained 20 lbs last year that did not go to the "right" places. Also have very deep abdominal scarring (gastroschisis at birth). To top that I have very sensitive skin plus sensory problems that make wearing anything itchy a form of torture. This dress was Soooo comfortable against my skin! I love lace but usually cannot wear it. However this dress was so soft and silky inside; the mesh chest/sleeves so very soft and comfortable I could wear it all day :) also the way the stretch sleeves gather they can fit to your wrists whether you have long or short arms. Also easy to zip and button in back by yourself. No extreme reaching. And I can tell when I lose this 20 lbs that this dress will still fit beautifully. This dress is my holidays with my family and feel sexy date dress all in one! Love Love Love it!!!

Love the dress, but...
The dress fit almost perfectly. I am 5'10", 36D, 151 lbs and typically wear a large, which was the case with this dress. It fit nicely and wasn't tight anywhere. However, despite trying it on with half a dozen different bras of varying lift, padding, etc., the way the bodice lay made it look like the dress was flattening my bust, even though it wasn't, and despite there being room in the bodice. It was weird and not flattering. The dress looked amazing in every other respect, side view, back, everything, but that one part of the front was a fail, so, with a heavy heart, I returned the dress. It's too bad because it's one of the most gorgeous, elegant, and unusual dresses I've seen from bebe in a long time. I'd love to see more along these lines. I hope you'll have better luck with the dress than I did because it is beautiful.
