Orange beaded cowl back maxi dress
Sophisticated and elegant style - for taller women.
I thought my wife looked beautiful in this gown but unfortunately it was rather too long for her. She is 5' 3" tall and even when wearing her platform soled shoes, which have huge heels, there were 2" or more of the dress on the floor. So I would say, unless you are 5' 6" or taller, even very high heels will not solve the problem. We had to return the item, very reluctantly.
Also, I gather it is heavy to wear and although that should perhaps not be a surprise, as it has lots of sequins, I wonder if the dress would lengthen under the weight of sequins, as the hours pass. Something to consider when choosing the height of heels to be worn with this dress.
One would think these full length dresses, which due to their design/makeup are not suitable for shortening, I gather, would be available in three or even four lengths.
Feel like a million dollars
It was the colour that drew me to this dress. After a certain age, ladies should not wear black; it is draining. The details of the beading/sequins are exquisite, but does make the dress rather heavy. But it feels gorgeous. Very, very flattering. The cowl back falls just above the bra line, which allows you to wear a normal bra, so uplift is assured! I love this dress and my husband loved the reduced price - so it's a win-win. Can't wait to wear it on New Years Eve.
Considering I normally go for black dress this one I fell in love with, is looks great and I feel a million dollars love it
Looks stunning, a definite wow factor dress
I wore this dress to a wedding function. Everyone said looked amazing. I am short ( 5 ft 4 in ) so I wore with high comfy wedge heels - though if there was less dancing would have worn other high heels and would have also looked great. Great with a few bangles/simple bracelet and gold earrings. I am usually an 8 size but had to get a size 6.
