Beautiful color, problematic fitReview by Julia

I bought this dress to wear with a beautiful statement necklace I've owned for a while but never had a good dress to pair with it. The color is beautiful (definitely more teal than turquoise), and the neckline is absolutely perfect for my large necklace. As with virtually every PUG item I've ever bought, it was WAY too long and needed 3.5" removed from the hem to hit at the bottom of my knee-cap. This is definitely a dress that requires a very full petticoat too - it's quite drab if you don't have a dramatic poof in the skirt.

As other have mentioned, it fits quite small. I'm very petite and the XS fits me well, but I couldn't stand to be any bigger and still zip it up. It's also extremely long-waisted; my natural waist hits just about in the middle of the waist panel, where it's clearly meant to hit at the bottom so the skirt flares out directly from the waist. I almost sent it back because of this (the alteration to fix it would be very expensive), but ultimately, I liked everything else about the dress enough to put up with it. (Posted on 1/8/2016)

i love this dress. my only word of advise is to order up a size if youre in between and the site reccomends that. however.. it is exactly what i hoped it would be. also that it is more of a teal color rather than turquoise, but i saw that feom the picture and thays what i needed. very very very happy with the dress, and even more happy that it came so quickly! i set for one week delivery and it came within two business days. i reccomended it to the entire bridal party im in and would highly reccomend it to several more people!

Too Bad it's Too SmallReview by Becky

I LOVE the way this dress looks in the pictures - that perfect shade of turquoise. Unfortunately, the dress does not arrive that way. The fabric is a dark, almost forest, green.
My dress (size L) was much too tight in the rib cage/waist and because of that bunched oddly along my back and above my hips. I'm re-ordering in pink in size XL - hopefully that one fits.
The construction seems great, and the fabric does have quite a bit of stretch, so that's a good thing. (Posted on 7/28/2015)
Frumpy and green not Turquoise. Review by KPie

I'm not sure what to think of this dress. First, it arrived looking more like a dark Jungle green than a Turquoise. The one I received looks nothing close to the color in the picture. I read several reviews before ordering my dress and maybe I let those reviews influence the size I ordered too much. Everyone kept saying how it arrived too small. So going off the measurements I got a size Large. Maybe I would have faired better with a Medium which would have been tight but hopefully wouldn't have been this frumpy. I'm a 34 G and yet the cups of this completely cover me to the point that there is no cleavage AT ALL. Once again nothing like the picture. And nothing like several of the reviews I read. Also, it looked borderline matronly. I would exchange it but this was for my 30th birthday this weekend and I'm not sure I could deal with the disappointment if the Medium ended up arriving just as disappointing. Might just have to return it. (Posted on 6/8/2015)

DisappointingReview by Christina

I think the measurements for PUG rely on an extreme hourglass figure rather than realistic body measurements. In most brands, I am exactly a medium. However, the waist in this dress was too small when the arms and chest areas fit perfectly. So, I exchanged it for a large (paying return shipping). When I finally received that (after having to ask repeatedly if the return was ever received), the waist fit great width-wise but the bodice was now too long as the chest area was huge.
I took it to my tailor to see if anything could be done, and he said no considering the wrap styling, it would be expensive. I think a dress this expensive should have seam allowance for taking things out,bbut PUG doesn't do that. Now I have to pay return shipping again, and I'm out 15 bucks for a dress I cannot wear. It was going to be my ball dress for Viva. Considering I have to alter every dress or skirt I get from PUG, I may shop elsewhere from now on. Either make your items cheaper or change the sizing measurements to be more realistic. (Posted on 3/14/2015)

This dress is soooo beautiful on!

The length is rather long for my petite height, but that is easily remedied by wearing a crinoline, which I think is how the dress is meant to be worn, as it's much more beautiful with a full skirt.

The fabric does have some stretch, which is nice, but it's also easy to pull at the seams, so don't trust the stretch, which is why I gave it one heart less. I would say that it's true to measurements, but if you're worried about fit I would buy a size up. (Posted on 1/20/2015)

I wore this dress for New Year's Eve, and got many compliments! Mine was not too long (I'm 5'3" and ordered the XL), but I did wear a very fluffy crinoline with it. I will say that though this is billed as a "modest neckline" my girls were very much on display. Something to keep in mind if you are busty! It's a great dress, and I look forward to wearing it again. (Posted on 1/13/2015)

I love this dress! My partner said it is the most beautiful dress he has ever seen in his life - and I agree! It fits perfectly, the colour is stunning and it looks divine with a petticoat underneath. I had to get it shortened because it was way too long on me, but that was easy to do and rather than follow the curved existing hemline I had a straight hemline put on it, which worked better for me. I bought it in a size larger than I thought I needed according to the size chart and that was a VERY good idea - it fits across my bust perfectly. Thank you PUG clothing - this one is 5 stars!

This dress is everything I hope for-except it is so long, it goes to almost my ankles. I wish PUG dresses werent so very very long. Other than that, this dress is just stunning, and I love the color! (Posted on 12/23/2014)
