Luxurious and sweet

My package arrived and upon opening it the first thing I noticed was the most divine and fresh smell. It smelled like the most relaxing bubble bath you've ever had. On top of smelling lovely, the fabric is so soft and feels luxurious on. I couldn't stop twirling in the fun skirt. Love this dress and the sustainability behind it!!

Beautiful Dress!

I love my Lucy dress! It fits like a dream. At first I chose the wrong size, but the experience with exchanging for a different size was pleasant & easy, and now I have one that's perfect.

Thank you!

Beautiful and unique

I am so excited to wear this dress! It fits perfectly and I love how unique it is, especially with the buttons up the side. For ladies who need to wear a bra, the straps on the back cover the strap. The buttons are a little tricky; definitely needed help from my fiancé but probably doable by yourself if needed.

Fun but not cut for women with an hourglass shape

I truly love the dress, despite the little buttons my husband needed to close for me. The only problems I had were that it felt like the pockets started at my knees and the top is not cut for women with breasts (I'm a size 6 with 34C I ordered a Medium). I feel smashed in and the fabric, which is thinnish, shows how smashed in I am.

I do truly love everything about the dress and recieved a ton of compliments, I just feel a little insecure with the top. Perhaps I'll sew in some darts to fix the problem.
