Dixiefried was launched in Los Angeles in 1997, and its return has been eagerly awaited by vintage clothing lovers in the know no brand has ever matched Dixiefried's level of style and workmanship, although many have tried. Fans of Dixiefried tell stories of purchases that last for 10 years of constant wear (just ask our very own Micheline, who still wears the Dixiefried fashions she purchased 6 years ago!).
The Niagara Dress by Dixiefried is made from a high quality, soft stretch bengaline (not scratchy like the cheap stuff), and features a sexy, almost offtheshoulder neckline with little cap sleeves that stays put and won't slide off your shoulders, a tie detail with cutout detail, a fitted silhouette, and a sexy gathered detail down the center front of the dress that works wonders at hiding any tummy imperfections. A sexy front slit provides an unexpected touch.

I cannot tell you how much I love this dress. I got the 2X - I am a UK size 18/ The fit is beautiful, the comfort perfect and it is sooooo versatile. Pop on little cropped cardi and you can dress it down. Pair with some killer heels, and some unashamedly glam jewels and you dial it up to the max.
I haven't had a prblem with the shoulders as some seem to have, but if I did, I would play thta flirty little mishap with Miss Monroe ease. This dress looks great without the retro corsetting as there is stetch in there but it looks even more amazing with......
And now to brave it and get the pink.......... (Posted on 8/20/2015)
Great dress, maybe needs to be shorter...Review by Tracie

I just recently purchased this dress, and it's great! It is very stretchy, so I would order a size down. My measurements are 32-26-34 and I ordered an XS and wish it were just a tiny bit smaller. I'm 5 feet tall, and it is rather long on me, so I will need to get it shortened... Also the sleeves are a bit frustrating because they slip a lot, but other than that it's great!

my husband LOVES this dress! i own 2 now: one in white and one in black. I am a 12/14 and the large is a perfect fit without being too tight. super sexy, super comfortable too.

Quick blurb for PUG: thank you for all these fabulous styles! i have an immune condition that makes me allergic to my own hair. i have to wear my hair super short and when i can no longer bear the hives or rash, it has to all come off. needless to say. this makes a Southern girl feel not so very feminine (we are all about our hair!) and (sadly) rude comments from strangers and co-workers make me extremely self conscious about it. Your clothing has helped me feel so much better. when i wear your clothes, people just tell me how pretty i look in them and seem to forget to focus on my lack of hair. helps me to do the same. Thank you PUG! (Posted on 3/27/2015)

This dress is comfortable and oh so cute and sexy. Made very well in a nice soft yet sturdy fabric. If I have the slipping problems with the shoulders as others have commented on, I'll put in a few little pleats to make it fit a bit closer. I like that the bust is fully adjustable with the ties.
I ordered the Medium and its a nice fit, not at all tight on my measurements of 34DDD, 26 waist and 36" hips. If I order another color I'll probably go with a size small.

I'd love it in navy or royal blue or white w/ black polka dots. (Posted on 12/4/2014)

I placed this dress on my wishlist and really thought nothing else about it. My birthday was the 21st of September and this was one of the items my mum brought me. It is 1000% better than expected! This dress looks great on me and its super stretchy so for some reason if you gain weight the dress will still fit you. I recommend this dress! I am almost 5'11 and the dress still hits a little below the knee on me! I can't wait to wear this out somewhere, I am tempted to throw on some heels and go grocery shopping in it.

I don't have much of a figure and I love the look of this dress! The gathering at the waist really helps create a curve without needing a belt. I actually bought this dress to wear to a wedding while I was 8 months pregnant and the gathering STILL helped give me curves. I own the discontinued mint and coral dresses and am lusting over the black! Definitely want more Niagras in my wardrobe! (Posted on 9/16/2014)

I am an Aus size 8 so I ordered an xs. This dress is great for creating curves but regardless of what the description says, the sleeves slide and fall off constantly! I will have to buy double sided tape to keep them staying put. I also find that the back bulges a bit which I have had trouble with other PUG dresses. (Posted on 9/16/2014)

It's fabulous! I really love it. This time I kind of read reviews only after ordering and was wondering if I chose the right size, because some mentioned that "it's not that stretchy, runs large". But when I got mine in the mail, tried it on imediatelly, and couldn't be more pleased with it! The fabric, in my opinion is very good, and very stretchy. I have a dress in bengaline as well, but this is much softer and thinner (in a good way). It's like a second skin. Very very nice dress, can't wait for the warmer weather to wear it! Thanks, PUG!

I love this dress! It will be perfect to wear for the formal night on the cruise we booked at the end of the year! I followed the size chart and it was almost perfect, If i lose the weight(fingers crossed) it may be a bit on the big side but will still look glorious! Super fast shipping too! (Posted on 12/4/2013)
wouldn't recommend it to plus size girlsReview by Maite

I always wear XL so I got this in XL but it doesn't fit right at all. The top part is too big but I do have small breasts (b), the waist fits but at the hips it's a bit too small.. I also think it's a bit too short, it ends on my knee and I'm 5'8. I didn't return it because that would be too expensive for me since I live in Europe..
The first time I wore the dress the front slit ripped. The shoulders slide off all the time. The fabric looks and feels cheap, especially compared to stuff from PUG or DD. The black isn't really black, it looks a bit dull.

It's the only thing that I've ever regretted buying from this site..

Unfortunately for me, I don't think this dress looks good on plus size girls.. (Posted on 12/4/2013)

I absolutely love this dress! I was a bit nervous because it looked small off but fit perfectly. My only recommendation- and I'm not sure if it's just me having an aptitude for breaking everything- but the front slit ripped right the way up as I was getting in the car the first time I wore it. I would recommend reinforcing that seam for piece of mind at least.
Regardless, still deciding on the colour of my next one. (Posted on 12/4/2013)

just wore this dress out to an upscale restaurant last night. It was just beautiful! My only complaint was that after a long night of walking around, the cap sleeves DID tend to slide off my shoulders a bit. Perhaps I needed a smaller size, but otherwise it seemed to fit perfect. Just had to watch for wardrobe malfunctions. However, that being said, I will still be ordering this dress in other colors. Highly recommend! (Posted on 12/4/2013)

Hugs your body in all the right places. I did find that the bengaline on this one is not as stretchy as it normally is but still does provide a good amount of stretch. (Posted on 12/4/2013)

I have this dress in blue bengaline. The blue fits great and stretchy, but the black is cut bigger and less stretch because different fabric. I have the blue in x large and love it. Got black in xlarge and should have got a large. Was told they cut it larger because of less stretch. Keeping it and will get it tailored. (Posted on 12/4/2013)
