Bistro Dress

Bistro Dress is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, runs a little large I just got this dress, and I'm totally in love. I like that it's machine washable, and it matches NARS Heat Wave quite well. Now, I'm 5'7'' and 120lb. I got size 2 (my usual). It's OK, I'm not returning it, but if they had size 0 in stock, I'd exchange it. It's not as fitted at the waist as I'd like. But overall, a great dress that I'm looking forward to wearing this spring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dress! Overall I thought this dress was fantastic! The fit was very nice, the color was great, and the style is very versatile. It's conservative enough to wear to work, but no so conservative that you can't wear it anywhere else. As far as sizing goes, I'm usually an 8 or a 10, and I ended up getting a 10 in this. The 8 fit fine but the 10 was more comfortable. So I'd say it runs very TTS, I have a large chest (36DD) and they fit very nicely in this! It's stretchy material though so I assume almost any size really would fit. My only small complaint is that it does slightly accentuate my love handles lol - not enough that I saw it as a reason not to get the dress! But if you really hate that, it could bother you. It still looked great though, just added a little bulk there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You can wear this to anything This dress is perfect! I wore this to a rehearsal dinner at a wedding and got so many compliments. The color is great and the fit is perfect. I went down a size so it fit more snug. I highly recommend this dress!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Cute I was worried about ordering a 2 because I normal order 0s but it fit great. It is very bright but I like it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from sexy and fun The picture doesn't do this dress justice. If you have a curvy body, it looks very sexy. Way too much cleavage for work. A fun dress for a fancy or casual occasion. Looks great with a cardigan or colored belt.
