Belle Gray by Lisa Rinna Tropical Print Maxi Dress with Ruffle
This very pretty dress caught my eye because elegant look of the fabric and the greatly reduced price. The dress is even prettier in person and the tropical print unique. A little limited in wearability because of thin straps but I tried on with a coral shrug I have and it looked great. Will also work well as a cover up. Am a med. and size 12 is fine.
I have been wanting this dress forever, but kept forgetting to order. I finally ordered but had to send back for a size larger. I should have listened to the women who said this dress will shrink. I am normal an 8-10 and ordered the size 10. It fitted and was beautiful until I washed it. I could have kept the sz 10 but I like a flowy maxi dress. I exchanged for a size 12 and completely back in love. The background is dove grey vs. cream in this dress. The online pictures do nothing for the beauty of this dress. I am 5'3" and will not have to hem this dress...love.I will wear with a cute cardigan as soon as it stops snowing in Chicago.
Beautiful Maxi Dress! Can't Get Enough!
This dress is absolutely gorgeous! I have received so many compliments on the dress! For the past two years, I have owned this dress and loved every minute. I am planning to continue wearing the dress for the upcoming Spring and Summer season. It's versatile and can be used for multiple occasions. When all of the sizes were available, I purchased this dress in a regular size 4; the fit was true to size. The dress is a smokey (or dusty) lavender grey color with accent colors of dark purple, brown, light brown, and bright pink making up the tropical leaf pattern. I love how the color pallet used on the dress is very unique. This dress is exactly pictured as shown within the pictures and video presentation provided.The fabric material is a perfect weight for the dress - it's not super thin or heavy. Just perfect for warm Spring or Summer days or nights. The dress also offers one the option to wear it strapless or with straps. I have worn the dress both ways and found the straps useful. They are good for days when one doesn't want to wear a strapless bra but would like to wear a standard bra that matches the colors of the dress. Furthermore, the material does wrinkle but it's nothing a few quick minutes (5 - 10 minutes max) of ironing can't take care of. For laundering, I wash my dress with lukewarm water (warm / cold water) and some Woolite on the gentle cycle of the washing machine. Then, I hang dry the dress. The dress has maintained it's color and shape. I would highly recommend this dress to everyone. If your size is still available, give it a try. It's a beautiful tropical dress. Please make more prints and colors of this dress Lisa Rinna!
Just love this dress! So comfy and feel great in it! Love the fabric! Make more like it Lisa! In different colors and prints!!!
As noted by others, coloration is drab, not as shown on web page, and comes as wrinkled mess. Two layers of material; top layer is very thin. Web page implies better weight/drape. No slip is needed; seems true to size. Spaghetti straps are unappealing; a thin bra is not enough for this dress. Top ruffle poorly done. Felt mislead in the web description/photo. Not happy I will have to pay to return.
Pleasantly surprised with this dress
I had ordered several items from qvc and this dress was the only thing I didn't return. I am a large sized woman (16), but I ordered the 18 just in case. I could have gone for my regular size but the 18 is acceptable and is not big enough to warrant return shipping charges. This dress is very flattering though I was a little skeptical because of the elastic at the waist. It's feminine and so pretty on. I have washed it a couple times and have not had any shrinkage. The only problem I see is that the fabric is very wrinkle prone, but I just iron it and it's just as pretty as ever. Absolutely love it!
A Lovely Dress
This is a beautiful dress and I will be keeping it. However, as another reviewer noted...this dress does appear to be a cream background on the computer photo. The background is definitely grey. This is why I gave it only 4 stars although to be fair, I don't believe it is the manufacturers fault but whomever is responsible for photos on qvc.com
Blah colors in the print; wrinkled mess
I do not like the colors in this dress. My computer screen makes the backgroud look like a vibrant cream when actually it is a dull grey that does not marry well with the other colors. Also, perhaps because it is on clearance and has been stored for some time, it came in the worst shape than any item I've received from QVC. Every inch was wrinkled like it had been squashed into a ball and put in the bottom of the laundry basket for weeks.
This is a wonderful dress. Fabric is very nice. Style is very flattering. The ruffle around the top is the best part. Love it!
I love this dress! Everytime I wear it, I receive so many compliments...even from perfect strangers. I have had no problems with washing it. It has been washed several times and no shrinkage. This was a great purchase! Thanks, Lisa and QVC
Got It...Love It !!!!!
This dress is the best....so comfortable, so beautiful, so elegant. I wore this dress today on my birthday and received sooooo many compliments! You cannot go wrong with this purchase. The only thing I recommend is to size down. I usually wear a size 2-4 (XS), but I ordered this dress in size 0 and it fits perfectly. LOVE IT!
Great dress and I love it but...
I have found that after I washed this dress with Woolite in cold water by hand and hung it to dry that it has shrunk almost to the point of it being unwearable. I ordered 2 sizes intending on sending one back and to be sure to get the right fit for me---a 12 and a 14 which is what I normally wear. I kept the 12 as it fit me better than the 14 but after I washed it I noticed it had shrunk both in width and length. I wonder if anyone else who ordered this dress has noticed the shrinkage?
