Printed Sateen Dress
Perfect if you aren't curvy
I wanted to specifically write a review to address how small the bust area is in this dress and saw that another reviewer already mentioned it.
I am curvy on top and while I tried on this dress in my normal numeric Bebe size and the next size up ,there was no way to make this dress look good, despite the pattern being beautiful and the dress being well constructed. I was crushed in the bust area and I looked like a sausage stuffed into this dress. It was so disappointing that there was no flexibility on the top of this dress. The bust area of this dress is constructed almost like a flat panel or shield like shape so if you have shape on top, you won't be able to fit or will flattened out. Trying on larger sizes only creates the structured top to sharply protrude outward from your body.
The torso and waist area of the dress fit as normal, despite the shortcommings of the bust area. The material was quality and the pattern was beautiful.

Sexy and slimming
I love this dress! I got a ton of compliments and it fits well if you're tall, too (I'm 5'11''). I wore Spanx underneath and no bra...there is light padding so none is needed. I'm a small C cup and think that D might be too big to fit in the top of the dress. Although it's quite fitted, the material doesn't show off every bump - and the black blocking on the sides are really slimming.
