Rated 5 out of 5 by Spanish teacher This dress is VERY slimming!
I bought this dress last year. I wear it with a black shrug and it is amazing how slimming this dress makes me look. I wear a 2X. I just wore it to a wedding this past Saturday and I was very pleased as to how I looked in the photos.

This dress is exactly what I've been looking for - finally, a maxi with flattering stripe placement! However, when it arrived, I was sooo disapponted to discover that the stripes on the side seams don't line up! I'm not sure if I received a defective one or if they're all like that but I'm not risking a reorder. I wish it wasn't a deal breaker for me but those uneven seams would drive my OCD over the edge.

I am 5'9" and 185, large was good for me. I would have given 5 stars, but the dress I received had been worn and had stains all over the front of it and no tags. I would return but I really like it!
Rated 5 out of 5 by samii I HAVENT WORN A DRESS
in many years due to my weight, however, I just lost 40 lbs, (a total of approximately 100 over the years) and decided to buy this maxi. WOW is all I can say. Strategic placement of the pattern does wonders for the silhouette of the garment. I purchased a medium (size 10-12) and the fit is perfect. I am between a petite and regular. I purchased the regular. I think with a low heel it will be a perfect fit. Thanks Louis and QVC for bringing such a perfect dress.

This is a very nice dress. The pattern of the stripes is slenderizing.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Chitown Princess My Best Purchase
Wow! I purchased two colors and the dresses are beautiful and elegant. The attention to detail, the position of the stripes truly flatter the figure. This is my first purchase and certainly not my last in this collection.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sheesh Extremely Figure Flattering!
Boy, oh, boy, does Louis know how to flatter a woman's figure while hiding any figure flaws! I got this in the Topaz and I just love it. Wearing with Louis's Black Torsade necklace and the new Topaz Zebra Striped Cardigan. Heads turn!
Rated 4 out of 5 by makp Beautiful dress
This dress is stunning! Only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because of sizing issues; you have to really size down to get the desired look and fit on this one. I wear a B&M size 6 and the XXS in this dress fit great.
Rated 5 out of 5 by teachergal It's true, I looked wonderful in this dress!
I wore this bronze/black dress to a special event. I got so many compliments, from friends and strangers. I am short 5'2", but ordered the regular 12. It fit great with black wedges 3" heels. My problem area is the tummy, but the stripes going on a slant were the trick. My tummy was not an issue. If you want a cool, easy dress for an event or just uptown this one will work. I wore it last week to a nice restaurant on a vacation in Maine. I just put on a simple black shrug and again it was a winner.
Rated 1 out of 5 by cheshire-cat Disappointment!!
In these days of high shipping and return costs I am very careful what I buy, and am reluctant to buy multiples of anything I'm unsure of as there is no longer a half off shipping inducement. As you guessed, I was so excited about this gown I bought it for all my daughters--sure that Mama would look like a very hip, generous lady. All I can say is I have very diplomatic children; they kindly and quietly returned all of them and the shrugs I had bought to complete the ensemble. Great girls; awful outfit. Baggy, gaudy instead of the classiness I was aiming for...just awful.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Q fan Amazing 1X
So impressed how figure flattering the stripe placement is! Striking, handsome design in Tobacco. Honestly made me feel elegant paired with the cropped elbow length sweater. Trust Mr. D'O's artistry. Has light airy feel, smooth, not clingy drape great for hotter climes. Neckline perfect; certainly not 'racy' to limit settings (at least for my 42 C.).
Usually wear LDO PXL or P1X, in dresses. (Altho avg - longer legged, due to smaller/avg shoulders & short-waistedness.) Reg 1X tad wide in shoulders, but works. Most imp: Reg allows extra rm for tum & bum. Normally will NOT confine myself beyond underwear -- willing to don Spanx for this amazing design. Teensy long for flats, perfect in wedge heels.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Infobabe This one's terrific - I got two!
Moss was the only color left when I found this online, ordered in my regular size Large and it came today - WOW!!! I am 5;4", full in the bust, broad shouldered and carry my weight in my stomach and hips, this makes me look curvy and fabulous!!! Fabric is light, but substantial, doesn't cling ANYWHERE, I just love it!. Not too tight, not baggy at all, length is just to my ankles, couldn't be better. I don't find the neckline too low at all.
Came on to write my review and saw the ivory was back in stock in my size, so snapped it up too! Can wear either of them with a shrug or denim jacket (the yellow LDO one will be perfect!), a big floppy black hat and sandals or flip flops for casual. I have several of Louis' maxis and this one's a winner!
