Fit and Sizing
When taking measurements for this dress, we recommend paying attention to bust and waist measurements.
The straps on Luella come long to accommodate for larger busts. These are easily altered if needed!
The model pictured is 5’9” and wearing 3” heels. She is wearing a size 4 dress.
Fabric and Care
Luella is made from a chiffon fabric which is comfortable to wear and similar in quality to silk, but much easier to clean and care for. This dress can be dry cleaned, but can also be washed regularly at home on a delicate cycle. Best of all, the exceptional quality of the flat chiffon means Luella will hold up over multiple washes so you can make the most of your dress.
I understand that it can take a while to fill an order if the dress has to be made. I also understand that it would be hard to have a stock of dresses in certain sizes readily available for quick order fullfillment. But, to have to wait for over four months for a dress that is so big that it's practically falling off after following your sizing guides is a little much. Either fill the orders within a reasonable timeframe, or take exact measurements from your customers and custom make the dress; take four months for that. That would be reasonable.
It has pockets and reminds me of a ballerina.
I'm a little surprised at the way this dress fits out of the bag. The tightest part around the ribcage is appropriately tight (size 4), but the straps are VERY long. My seamstress says it looks like the straps are designed for someone much taller with bigger, boarder shoulders. (I'm 5'5") Seems misaligned with the rest of the fit of the dress. Also, it feels/looks wider around the hips than I anticipated - likely due to the pockets!
The dress fits perfectly in the torso and length wise. It’s a little big in the chest, and the straps are way too loose in the back, so going to have to get that altered. I’m normally a 4 and that’s what I ordered, so it runs accurately in the body, but too big in the chest/straps.
The dress is beautiful and of high quality, but it doesn’t fit well. This is disappointing since my measurements confirmed with the sizing chart on the website.
I absolutely loves the pockets. I have a weird body type so my bust was swimming in this dress, but with the right alterations it was a perfect fit! I should have went to a location to try on the dress before purchasing it.
Cute dress and nice color!
