I have wanted this dress for as long as I can remember, but never had the occasion. When my friend announced she would be married I knew immediately what I'd wear to the wedding! I ordered this dress in the size I always wear, but to my disappointment it didn't come close to fitting over my large chest (38H). It fit quite nicely everywhere else except my chest. To avoid multiple back and forth size exchanges, I ordered 2 sizes up from what I normally wear and will have to have it altered a great deal as it now fits around my chest but is terribly large everywhere else- it's actually quite loose and long. I hope I can find someone to alter this dress so it looks as it should. This will be a very expensive dress in the end when I was hoping to buy it and look fabulous. With all the rave reviews I never thought I'd have this issue. :( (Posted on 7/15/2015)

This dress is amazing! I waited a while to buy it, but I am SO glad I finally ordered. I am short and very busty, so I was concerned about the sizing and length. It's perfect. I have a hard time finding dresses, but this one hugs in all the rights places and has just enough give in material to accommodate a variety of bust sizes. The color is terrific! It is much closer to the last photo than the first three.

Service and price were great. The dress is high-quality and it came in only a few days after ordering it. (Posted on 2/7/2015)

My best friend ordered this dress to wear as my Maid-of-Honour. She's super tall with killer curves, and this dress was perfection. So flattering and she said that unlike other shiny fabrics, this didn't hug or bulge in weird places. HIGHLY recommend! (Posted on 10/25/2014)

I recently bought this dress and am totally in love with it! I was debating between this colorway and another, but I'm so glad I went with blue. The color and fabric is very luxurious!
The only down-side is that I need help with the zipper on this dress. I bought a 2X to fit my waist (I am 40-36-40) and it does fit pretty snug- however once I'm zipped up, it's extremely comfortable! I had to watch a YouTube video to figure out the sash, but it is actually really easy.
I am very please with this purchase and definitely will consider getting another color way in the future! (Posted on 9/17/2014)

This dress is a knockout!!! The colour is amazing! The waist is so flattering. I feel like an old school Hollywood movie star in this dress. It was so helpful to watch Micheline's you tube vid on tying the waist! I had it all wrong until I watched it.

This review is long overdue but this dress is just stunning. I bought it for a very fancy black tie wedding and it was just perfect. I ran into a famous actor in the hotel lobby bar at the wedding who looked me up and down and said that I was "beautifully put together" and complimented me on the color of my dress. The blue is classic and would look amazing on anyone and any skin tone. I am 5'8" and 135 lbs and purchased a small. It is snug on the chest area but not to the point of it being uncomfortable or too risque. It did require a good steaming before wearing and it does wrinkle but watching the Pinup Girl tutorial on how to tie the sash helped greatly! (Posted on 9/16/2014)

I bought this dress for my son's wedding. I looked and felt like a million bucks! I was worried about showing too much boob, but my alteration lady{ I had her hem it a bit I'm 5'6 and it came past the knee} give me a tiny pin to use. Perfection! I danced all night, no worries. Thanks PUG! the wedding pics are amazing. (Posted on 9/13/2014)

I bought this dress in teale & black for an awards ceremony. I reckon I'd been eyeing it off online for at least 12 months. I'm really trying to wean myself off black but bought it as a back up.- just in case. Delivery to Australia was super quick and I tentatively tried on the teale. Fits like a glove and I loved it so much decided to keep both colours. I felt so comfortable & confident with no need for stockings or spanx as it camouflaged my mummy tummy. I wore the teale to my awards ceremony. Not only did I win an award but several ladies came up to speak to me to tell me they thought I also won best dressed female of the night. The colour looked amazing in all the photos amongst a sea of black. If you are thinking of buying this dress DO NOT HESITATE! (Posted on 7/27/2014)

I'm currently larger than I've ever been (38/32/44) and so I've learned to generally steer clear of anything figure-hugging. I must say that I ordered this dress on a whim (and based on all the helpful reviews) and was astonished at how incredible it looks! Fits like a dream! I ordered an XL, which is a little too large for me in the shoulder/bust area, and will need to be taken up (I'm about 5"6 and a half), but honestly, this is a beautifully made, flattering, gorgeous dress and hugs my curves in all the right places. I can't recommend it enough. If, like me, you have a little junk in the trunk, a good piece of Rago shapewear will make the whole thing even better.Also worth a mention: I live in Europe and ordered priority shipping (the event is coming up soon), and my package arrived in 2 days!! Unbelievable! (Posted on 7/23/2014)

I bought this dress for my Mom. We had to return it and get the next size up, but she really likes this dress. My mom just had a mastectomy and reconstruction due to Breast cancer. She has always been fond of how her breasts look and the surgery was really hard on her. This dress looks great on her, It enhances her bust and is very flattering without showing any of her scars.

I am 5'6 and on me the dress came to mid-calf so I had it taken up to knee-length, which is much more flattering. I will be finding any excuse to wear this dress I can! (Posted on 12/4/2013)
Disappointing bridesmaid dressReview by Carol Ann

I currently wear a size 12 in most dresses but for more structured or formal clothing I sometimes have to order up a size to accommodate my bust (38FF) so imagine my disappointment when a 2X won't zip any higher than my bra band (I originally ordered a 1X and had to exchange it). I know I'm not rail thin but I'm also not a 2X in any other brand of clothing I have ever tried on.

I'm 5'2" and the dress comes down past my calves. I could smuggle a throw pillow under there and pretend I was pregnant too. It's beibg used as a bridesmaids dress so I don't have the option to return it since 2X is the largest size available. I'm just going to have to make it work with tailoring. Luckily there is enough material from the billowing bottom (my stomach and rear are far from slim so I don't know what's going on there) to accommodate the top alterations. The neckline is much higher on me than shown on the model (not a hint of cleavage and the lowest point hits just a few inches below my collar bone which I guess is contributing to not being able to zip it all the way up). The neckline was a disappoinment since the other bridesmaid and I agreed on this dress precisely because it looked "forgiving" in the bust. She wears a size 8, is a D cup and the 2X just barely zips on her.

I like the way it looks...on the model. As for me, I'll have to see what kind of franken-dress the seamstress can make.

If this works for you, bravo! Its certainly pretty in pictures of the model and other reviewers, it is a great price, beautiful color, etc but I've never felt more like a mishapen freak in this dress than when I was trying to pull the back zipper up with a coat hanger and crying.

I'm always wary of ordering anything satin online because so often it's that thin fabric that looks like it came out of a cheap costume shop. Not so with this dress! The fabric is surprisingly thick and good quality. I originally bought it for my rehearsal dinner, but I couldn't resist busting it out for Easter Sunday and everyone I talked to absolutely loved it. It does run a bit small though, so if you're on the fence, size up! (Posted on 12/4/2013)

i can't say enough good about this dress, it does wiggle out of place a bit if you're active in it (dancing) and it does move a bit when you're sitting however the look and color are wonderful, comfort is thru the roof and i can't say enough about the QUALITY - the seams, stitching,fabric all are extremely couture! i will definitely be purchasing more from this site, for the price you pay it's an incredible value, don't change a thing! (including prices) i'm so happy with this site and this dress! will be uploading pix soon (Posted on 12/4/2013)

I usually stay away from dresses with this length of sleeve because I don't like my upper arms. I was hesitant but just loved the way it looked on the variety of models on the site. I took a chance and I'm glad I did. I ordered up a size based on other reviews and it was the right choice. The dress is an amazing color and hugs the curves in a sexy but sophisticated way. I also ordered the mon cheri dress with the 3/4 length sleeves thinking I would prefer that one but I did not. This one was much more flattering on my figure. (Posted on 12/4/2013)

Really happy with this dress. A heavier fabric than I was anticipating and as a result, it sits nicely on. It is well-made and stitched. The colour is a little darker than shown but stunning all the same. Some people have indicated that it runs a little small and I would agree in some ways. I had bust and waist measurements pretty much spot on according to the size chart in one size but my hip measurement were much smaller but I went with the size that fitted the bust/waist and thought I could have it taken in at the hips. As it turns out, it actually sits really nicely all over, including the hips. So perhaps it runs a little narrow on the bottom half? I feel it is probably a little long on me but that is easily fixed and not being particularly tall, many dresses tend to run long on me. Overall, very happy and i can't wait to wear it to my next special occasion and order from PUG again! (Posted on 12/4/2013)

But with a dress!

The dress is of beautiful quality I would have expected to pay more for (not that I'm upset by any stretch that I didn't have to!), and the fit is incredibly flattering. The color is absolutely beautiful, and the picture just doesn't do it enough justice.

It's just perfect! This dress is easily the new most coveted dress in my closet and I already bought one for a friend because I felt it would be selfish of me not to share!

Be prepared for heads to turn your way and to give away where you bought it. I live in New York City, a city of millions rushing every which way, and this dress still steals the show.

The actual service from Pin Up Girl was quick and fantastic, and I really just couldn't be happier with my purchase. (Posted on 12/4/2013)

After buying the right size for my measurements and then finally being able to try it on, it ran much smaller through the ribs and I was unable to zip it up to even the half way point. They say that there is some give to the fabric, but with my corset it doesn't come close to have that little bit of "give". Also the sleeves are a bit tight but nothing crazy.

Beautiful color, not deep blue like the picture shows but more of a teal blue. Wonderful quality and truly bang for your buck but sad i'm having to return it.
Another thing I wish PUG would do, is give a bit more fabric to the seams so that when I go to get it let out or altered for my perfect fit, the seamstress had more fabric to work with.

still going to shop from PUG and i love the customer service.
