so flattering!
despite other reviews saying to size up, i found this dress true to size (could even size down depending on if you want a tighter fit). i was worried about the chest area being too tight (32D) but it was perfect - i had plenty of room. while the top of the dress is quite low, its still very classy. i think this dress would be very flattering to lots of body types.

Pretty but runs small!
Love this dress material and color, so pretty. But runs small! I’m typically a 12 and ordered a 14 so it wouldn’t be as fitting but unfortunately it was still skin tight. Glad I didn’t order my usual size, wouldn’t have been able to squeeze in :(

Obsessed
This dress is sexy but classy. I wore this to a wedding and ended up having 4 girls wearing the same dress. Fits like a glove

bad fit
the dress is stunning but the shoulders are loose and has a super deep neck, the fit on the actual dress is very nice.

Just okay..
Nice dress in theory however after I steamed it, the dress wrinkled immediately. Very visible in photos. Unfortunate as it is a very nice dress and style but the fabric seems to ruin it. Do not wear this to an event where you will be seated/walking around lots and taking photos

SO Cute but wrinkly
I love this dress! It fits so well and is so flattering! My only issue with it is that the material wrinkles too easily. I steamed it before I left home and by the time I got to my destination the fabric was super wrinkled and stayed that way all night. It also shows up easily in photos.

LOVE
i love the novella line. it one of my favorites from aritzia always look for new ones. though i have noticed that the material has changed to a more textured fabric, it is nice but i did like the other versions fabric better as it was smooth.

overall a very nice dress makes me feel very pretty

Beautiful addition to your closet
Gorgeous dress. Not too long but not too short. Sits perfectly on the arms/chest area. It’s not tight around the waist but it sits nicely so it doesn’t make you look square but instead gives you a nice shape. Unfortunately if you’re bloated you can see it through the dress (need to tuck in the tummy) :(

Loved it!
I bought this for an event at a hall and will be wearing it to a summer wedding next year. It's lovely and the material is so nice! I never buy expensive dresses but this was 100% worth it. I'm 5'3, 130 pounds, 28DDD / 32D and I got a size 4.
