Comments about fullbeauty Colorblock Empire Waist Dress:

Bought this dress for my daughters annual dinner and the theme was black and white. I bought a shawl to go with it. After putting the dress on and when reaching for the shawl the zipper split. my husband tried to zip it down so it would go back together but it wouldn't and in order to get it off the zipper had to be broken. I was very dissappointed as the only other dress I had to wear was a black sweater dress.

        I've had this dress in two sizes. The larger was great when I was larger and I am very happy that it is still available. So I have re-purchased it in the smaller size that fits me now. The lining makes the dress fall independently from my form so that there isn't any bunching and fussing. It is a wonderful design.

          This dress is well worth the money. Very nice, not sure if the cup size is too big the way it is made or it is me :)

            I really like this dress. It's a great shape for my body type. I especially like that the skirt part is lined. So many more expensive dresses are not and should be.

              I am keeping this dress since I am losing weight, and I love the way it looks, but it is a very tight fit in the bust. I can't zip it up without feeling like a sausage right now. That said, this dress is so lovely, so feminine and perfect for the dancing I bought it for, as my partner and I are taking ballroom lessons, and it will float around me as I wanted. In ten pounds or so, I will wear it well, I have no doubt. I always wear a size 16W, but really need an 18W in this dress. I won't exchange it, though, since I am losing weight and will need it to be smaller quite soon.

                I love the look of the dress. I am going to wear it to an ABWA Spring Conference at the end of March. And also wear it on Easter Sunday.

                I can't think of anything not so great about it. I love Roaman's clothing.

                Just not what I needed

                Comments about fullbeauty Colorblock Empire Waist Dress:

                I bought this specifically to wear to a wedding and I think I would have been mistaken for someone in the catering service. I'm 5'7" and wear an 18/20 and bought the dress in 18 and the vee of the neckline is very cleavage baring and it was also sewn a bit goofy so it didn't lay flat. The little sleeves were a bit snug on my upper arms. I think the style is very flattering and I loved the swingy skirt and the fabric. However it's going back.
