Our "Annalise" dress is the sweet, innocent sister to our "Lizbeth" wiggle dress. Perfect for summer, features include a cute curved princess neckline, cap sleeves, a full swing skirt, contrast belt, and gorgeous embroidered swallows along the bodice and hip area. NOTE: The swallows along the hip have a slightly better placement we shot the sample, and we've moved the placement of the swallows since then, they're not all in a line like they look to be here. Made from the highest quality stretch bengaline (not the scratchy stuff!) that hugs your curves and hides imperfections.

Beautiful but be mindful of sizingReview by Victoria

I loved this dress. The material is VERY giving so I sized down and was unable to fit my chest into it. While the rest of the material is very, very stretchy, there wasn't much give in that area and it was very uncomfortable to wear. So, my suggestion is to keep that area in mind when looking at the size chart and determining which to buy. It's a beautiful dress otherwise. (Posted on 9/17/2014)

I think this dress is lovely, although I have some small suggestions. I bought this in a medium because that is the size I am in the Heidi dress an although the description says buy a size down I'm glad I didn't as it wouldn't have fit my breasts. I am quite large busted and thus frequent PUG quite often.
The neck line could be a tad lower, to prevent the heart shaped parts flapping up, the body could be just the slightest bit longer (not much), it's just the waistline on the Heidi dress is a lil more flattering (it's a tad lower). Also as others have said the belt constantly slips loose, so I put Velcro dots on it.
Even despite these faults I love it immensely :) (Posted on 12/30/2013)

I have watched this dress for years! With the new site sale I decided to take the plunge and buy it. I was amazed that it arrived in China within 3 days.

The dress fits really nicely. I'm 5'11 and 42-37-49. I love how this style is forgiving on my hips. It is firm on the waist, but the high quality bengaline stretches nicely. It looks great with a nice full petticoat under the skirt or just on its own. The only thing I would say is that it does sometimes do a weird lumpy thing at the top of the back, which someone else mentioned too. Oh and like many others have mentioned, the slide belt is a pain. I ended up wearing it with a different belt.

Overall though it was well worth the wait, and lived up to my years of swooning. So many compliments, I love it. (Posted on 12/6/2013)

I am a performer, and bought this dress for a recent gig. I love it. The dress fit like a glove, has just the right amount of stretch to fit well and be comfortable. The embroidery is well placed and of a nice size so that the birds still look like birds from a distance. (Posted on 12/6/2013)
Weird...Review by Pattsy

I wish I had have seen the reviews saying to order a size down before I purchased! There's this strange part at the top of the back that just stick up and out. And it is very, very obvious, the only way to hide it is to slouch. I think I'm going to have to get it altered to fix it. :(

It comes down to about two inches above my ankles. I am approximately 5'2 I think? I will be getting it taken up. Although that's generally an expectation for me as I'm used to being short.

Other than that the material is wonderful. Stretchy, but good quality. It's rather thick, and doesn't feel cheap like other stretchy dresses I've seen before.

The belt doesn't have a buckle part, so it slips loose a lot and is a hassle to keep done up. I tried it on for five minutes max, and in that time I probably fixed it up seven or eight times.

I gave 2 stars for fit and comfort because of the strange issue with the back, the larger sizing, and for the belt.
I gave 5 stars for service because it arrived to Australia within a week! That's the most impressive thing about this site for me I think. It's through a reliable courier that's very, very fast.

This is my favourite dress in my closet! The material is nice and heavy so it sits really well.

In terms of fit, the dress is generous in size. Although the XL I bought looks great and is comfortable, I probably should have ordered an L. I also agree with other reviewers in that it would be better if there were belt loops or a way to keep the belt in place as it does shift when you wear it.

I had meant to review this months ago (I bought this in the Fall of 2012) but I suppose "better late than never". ;) First of all, I felt fabulous in this dress. I wore it for Thanksgiving and got compliments from family members, one being: "You look gorgeous! What a dress!" It is constructed exceptionally well & the bengaline fabric is just heaven (having the right amount of thickness). The swallow embroidery is fantastic . I bought this in a Medium (34-38"B, 28-32"W) and it fit my body perfectly well. (At the time, my measurements were 37"B-31"W-38"H.) The belt gave a perfect illusion of a waist (I do not have a tiny waist, so the belt helped). However, the belt does slide out of place after a while. I wore a petticoat with this dress to make the skirt fuller. I did have to trim 3" off of bottom of the skirt, since I am only 5'3". (Posted on 12/4/2013)

Loved the dress as other people have mentioned the belt could do with belt holes, & the material is very heavy which I did'nt realise as its the hottest month of the year in Australia at the moment think I may have to wait till the weather cools down to wear it, but looking forward to it :) (Posted on 12/4/2013)

Versatile, stylish dress that can be accessorized for countless different opportunities. Fits extremely well. I do wish the belt had notches, as it gets tedious to continuously have to tighten it. I would not remove a heart for the belt, because that'd be silly. It's a wonderful dress. The belt is the only thing I would change.

36-29-40, large D cup, and I ordered a medium. (Posted on 12/4/2013)

The dress fit like a dream! The fit was very comfy and really flattered my curves. Because of the hips being open i went down a size (i have a small bust and big ass) and it really did fit jjust right. I would definatley recommend this dress! (Posted on 12/4/2013)

I watched this dress for months and when I finally purchased it, I could not have been more ecstatic! Based upon the other helpful reviews, I decided to order a size down with extreme trepidation, but I need not have worried: ordering down is definitely the way to go. I usually get an XL from Pin Up Girl (I wear a 36DD) and this time I got a Large, and the fit is amazing! I get lots of compliments with this, it accentuates the body in the best possible way. Even my dry cleaner commented lovingly on it and said she didn't want to give it back to me! The fabric is stretchy and thick, so there's no need to wear a slip underneath. The swallow embroidery is sublime, and it adds something really special. The way the skirt flares out is also striking. Don't hesitate on this one, it's one of my favourite all-time purchases - it sits beautifully and makes you feel ultra feminine. (Posted on 12/4/2013)

Definitely generous sizing. I'm a 32-24-35, 5'6" tall and the XS was loose with quite a high waist, I had to resell. Almost looked nice with the belt done up tightly but it can't stay that way. You could tell it would have been lovely if it was 2-3" smaller. Nice length. (Posted on 12/4/2013)

It is generous in the fit, so as a UK 16 with G cup boobs I ordered an XL and although it fits great, I think a size down would have been better. Nice and modest too, so big boobs are under control, you could even wear in the day with flats, although I have only worn mine in the evening with heels.
The belt does slide though, which is a pain as you have to keep tightening it. I sometimes substitute that belt with a wide black elasticated waist belt anyway. With a crinoline underskirt you will feel great and turn heads! (Posted on 12/4/2013)

I wish I'd known to size down in this dress because it does have a bit of stretch, but it still fits fine on me and I feel gorgeous whenever I wear it. The fabric was much heavier than I'd expected - not really bad or good, just an observation.

The only complaint is about the belt. One, the actual color is much more muted than the blue in the main photo, closer to the blue in the photo of just the swallows. Also, I wish that it was a regular belt instead of a slide belt. I'm constantly tightening and adjusting it. (Posted on 12/4/2013)

Following recommendations, I went down a size to XS and think that it could even go a bit smaller with the amount of stretch in the fabric. The dress is very flattering, very comfortable. I love the full skirt; I'm 5'1" and it comes about mid-calf. My only minor complaint is that while the dress itself is very generous, size-wise, the little matching belt could stand to be a little longer (or at least have a better clasp or something). My waist is pretty small, but I find myself having to adjust the belt and pull it in occasionally or it comes undone. Dress looks great with our without it though. Otherwise this dress is perfect...so glad I splurged! (Posted on 12/4/2013)
