Mark of Style by Mark Zunino Knit Dress with Ruching & Faux Leather Detail
Mark knows his women
I purchased the black in size 8. I am normally a 12 or larger in B&M stores due to 38" bust. Being 5' 2", the back of the dress dragged on the floor, even with 3" heels, but I had that portion of the dress hemmed and kept the front as is. Thanks to the forgiveness of this fabric, this dress is marvelous! It is so flattering and slimming. I wore to my son's August outdoor Michigan, black and white themed wedding. I was extremely comfortable (I can't emphasize enough how comfortable this dress is) and stayed cool in the very warm afternoon sun. The slit is not too high. This dress was absolutely perfect for the occasion. Many complements received. Wore with black spinel tennis necklace and drop earrings. Could not have been more pleased! I will definitely get loads of use out of this dress. Will be taking on my next cruise. Thanks, Mark, for your fantastic design skills & bringing your fashion to the world!
I purchased this dress nearly two years ago for a wedding. I'm a size XL to 1X with an hour glass figure (in the bigger proportions!) The dress is extremely flattering with the ruching hiding any flaws in the tummy area. I purchased the black and the faux leather detail is a nice touch that adds to the figure flattering design. Have worn the dress to 3 different occasions now and have been complemented and comfortable each time.
This dress is beautiful and fits perfectly. I had received it as a gift and have gotten many compliments on it. I disagree with the reviewer that complained about the styling of the sleeves. I find the sleeves of this dress to be very flattering. A designer should not have to make his or her styles based on issues that everyone may not have. Some of us enjoy showing our arms and do not feel that everything should always cover up these areas. Mark has brought lovely clothing to QVC. It is a pleasure to know that Mark's sizing of his clothing runs more true to size than generous, at least for the pieces that I have received.
This dress is very sexy! I wanted something to wear to my son's wedding, more of a casual setting. This dress was perfect, I received more compliments, fit wonderfully, the ruching concealed what needed to be concealed. Thank you for helping me look beautiful for my son's special day!
Love, love, love this dress
I was looking for something to wear on my wedding anniversary trip to Vegas, and this caught my eye. I thought for sure it would show all of my lumps and bumps on my size 8 body, but I was so wrong! I am a size 8 or 10 in dresses due to my 36D bra size. This dress fit as if it was custom made for me. It hugged in all the right places, and then released in all the right places. It's not a mermaid style at all. The drape is absolutely beautiful. I probably could have sized down as others have said, if it weren't for my chest measurement. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this dress.
Mark Zunino definitely knows how to fit a woman's body. This dress is drapes so beautifully and hides all the lumps and bumps. Do size down. I am becoming such a fan of this designer. Everything I have ordered from him, I love!
Thanks Mark for bringing us such great fashions! Love the way this dress looks on me. It's also very comfortable and very hip!
I loved how trendy this dress looked so i ordered in both colors. The material is good and it is well made. However the sleaves are a major design flaw. Whe you design a dress for 1x, 2x etc you have to think that exposing the upper arm at that point and cutting off the sleave is NOT flatering!!!!! A designer like that should know better if you know womem!!! Back they go
Lovely - great buy
I purchased the dress in purple in a size 8, which normally is my size. It was too large and gapped at the sleeves - returned for a size 6 and what a difference. Came back for the persimmon. What a stunning dress - nice for the holidays or any occassion. Great buy
I ended up buying the purple and black. I did have to return for a smaller size. When I saw how the style looked on, I was not upset about the extra shipping expense. If you carry your weight on top you may want to stick to your true size. I based mine on the garment measurements and sized down one size originally but had to return that since the material was very forgiving and the 0 fit beautifully. I normally wear a 4 bottom and a XXS top. I am 59 and never actually wore a size 0 . The 0 fit perfectly and did not need to be stretched out to the maximum potential. I like my garments to hug curves but not to have the material stretch to the curves. I hope this information helps ladies with how to select their size. I wish more people would give exacting information on fit in their reviews so we all could make better decisions and avoid returns.
I received this dress in the persimmion yesterday, I put it on and model it for my husband, WOW! was his response.... That's all I needed. Purfect fit. I just wish the fabric was more of a Milkey Knit. All in all a great dress. I am keeping it
Love the style, unfortunately the "faux" leather was a miss....a simple black ribbon would have been a better choice.
