Our plus size jacket dress is a "forever" treasure from The Best Dressed Collection. You'll wear it on every romantic occasion! Sequins sparkle the sheer lace jacket with scalloped front and long sleeves. The sleeveless chiffon dress has a full, swirling skirt plus a detachable lace overlay bodice to double your fashion options! Wear it with the overlay for a lace look at the jacket opening; wear it without the overlay for a smooth look. And, as always, our expert designers have fashioned this dress with the newest slimming technology, so you know you will look your very best: smoother, slimmer and shapelier. The skirt is fully lined; the lining not only enhances the fullness of the skirt, but also helps to create a smoother, silhouette. And the lace jacket covers arms for a modest look, but still with a hint of flirtation from the skin peeking through. We know that this is the 2-pc. set that you'll keep forever because its timeless elegance will never go out of style. Absolutely stunning in polyester chiffon with polyester/viscose lace. Dry clean. Imported. Don't forget to finish the look with the perfect evening shoes and clutch!

Lace and Chiffon Jacket Dress
from Regina, Sask. Canada
Ordered the dress as the mother of the bride outfit. Am returning it as the top of the dress is about 8" too large. The jacket fits good. Is a flattering dress.
Beautiful and Comfortable
About Me Classic Dresser
This is a perfect mother of the bride's dress. Rich color and smooth fit. Fabric is butter soft and flowing. The straps to the dress are wide and adjustable. Perfect with lace jacket for coverage and air flow for summer outside wedding. Ankle length at 5'3"
not true to size

Size not true to fit. Poor quality of material for the price.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Pretty Dress But.................
Dress runs very big! Pretty and loved the adjustable straps but would look much better if the jacket was lined. I had to send it back because it was HUGE and I had ordered my normal size.
All of the dress fit nicely except under the arms... very loose and I had to alter it to fit properly. All in all it is a beautiful dress.
Exactly as described.
from Atlanta, GA
I will be attending a number of evening functions over the next year, so I am gearing up ahead of time. While I have sparkly, show-stopper gowns in my collection, I wanted to collect some that were more sophisticated and understated. This dress fits the bill. My only wish is that the gown was floor length (I'm 5'10''). If you guys could offer evening gowns for tall women I would be elated. Overall a great purchase for my collection (I order the blue).
Nice dress for the $$
from Rochester, NY
love the dress but it came 2 sizes to large I had to send it back twice before I got a size that would fit, and then the smaller size was still too big in the bustline and I am a a very large busted woman. Love the adjustable straps. I ordered all three colors kept the pink one. The blue was almost a black and the color just didn't look like the picture but the green and pink were very pretty
the good and the bad!
from aurora il
the good...gorgeous color...attractive style...bought with 40% off coupon...one of the very few places to buy that sell clothes big enough to fit me...received lots of compliments when i wore as mother-of-the-bride dress to my daughter's wedding last week. the bad...i order all my clothes from onestopplus (woman within and roaman's) for several years. i always order size 3x. i am very large busted...with very large stomach as well. i was terrified the dress would be too small...because i had heard special occasion dresses often run small. i read all the reviews on this dress. this dress did not come in 3x...but rather size 30...size 32 etc. i looked on the size chart and saw my regular 3x should equal sizes 30-32...and since i am on the bigger side of the 3x...i ordered size 32. well...it was HUGE!!!!! and i do mean huge!!! i didnt have time to exchange it...so i had to take to a tailor to alter. the dress said it would fit ankle length if you were 5 ft 5. i am only 5 ft 2 and was surprised it really wasnt all that long...but i did have to pay $38 to have tailor shorten the chiffon hem of dress 1 inch. she said the lining was shorter than the chiffon skirt already so she didnt hem it. the lace jacket...the sleeves had to be shortened...had to take sequins off cuffs to shorten and sew back on. the shoulder seams were halfway down to my elbows so had to be taken up. but worst of all was the top part of the dress...it was HUGE!!! like i was swimmng in it and there were several inches of extra fabric on each side too big!!! because of the sequins along neckline and armholes...tailor said it would be very time consuming and expensive plus needed to adjust bust darts too. since i am unemployed...she suggested saving money by putting 3 safety pins on each side of the bodice (on the inside of course!) and with the lace jacket over it no one could see. i still ended up paying almost $50 for alterations to hem and lace jacket. also the top of dress just hangs...even after she pinned it smaller...looks boxy and shapeless and makes you look like you have no waist. also the material looked cheap and thin and snags extremely easily. but having said all that...i still liked the dress...just wish it had been sized correctly and fit better.

I'm very excited to wear this dress. Ended up keeping the size 18 because the 20 & 22 I tried first were just overall too big. What a nice problem! Bought this in Navy to wear to my daughter's wedding. I love the lace jacket, enough coverage to feel modest, enough skin showing to make it fancy. This style will flatter so many figure types, it's wonderful! I'm 5'6" and the length is just like the picture shows, a hint above the ankle.
