Rated 2.8 out of 5 by 4
Rated 3 out of 5 by Dani You will have to get lining replaced and a different belt.
I'm pretty much going to echo what every other reviewer has said so far. This dress is so frustrating because the fit is SO flattering especially for us ladies with a bit more of an hourglass figure..but the lining comes up to the knee and the belt looks like something you bought from Claire's when you were 14!
I mean really BCBG? At $328 I really expected there to be a full lining AT THE LEAST. And it definitely would've been better had there not been a belt included at all than to include something so cheaply made and poorly designed. These two things turn what could be a very elegant and sophisticated dress into something that looks like you bought it from an Outlet Mall.
I have searched high and lo for a simple, figure flattering, decently priced white dress..and this dress hits the mark BUT (and that's a big but!), like the other ladies who reviewed this dress, I will have to spend another $100-$200 getting the lining replaced and probably more if I decide to look for a new belt. After months of searching, I really don't have the heart to begin the process all over again..so I am keeping. All of this to say, brides-to-be be aware of what you are buying! And BCBG, cutting corners is NEVER the answer!

Rated 4 out of 5 Great fit; quality lacking
I bought this dress for my wedding. I plan to keep it because I love the way it fits...draped on top and form fitting on the bottom half. The belt looks cheap, so I'm planning to wear a different belt. The biggest issue is the lining of the dress. The slip only goes to my knees even though the dress is full-length. And even the portion that's lined is still somewhat see-through. I'm planning to take the dress to a tailor to have the lining replaced.

Rated 1 out of 5 Huge disappointment
I ordered this dress for my daughter's prom. I can't begin to express how EXTREMELY disappointed we are with the quality of this dress. The major problem is that the fabric is see-through and only has a half lining under the skirt portion. It makes what could have been a perfect style dress look very cheap. What's also disappointing is that the photo doesn't show the half lining, and additionally, it's not stated in the detail description of the dress on the website page. It's very deceiving and misleading. Unfortunately, I didn't scroll down low enough on the page to see that another customer had posted the same exact comments and dissatisfaction. Had I noticed her comments prior, I would never have ordered the dress. I don't think this dress is worth the money I paid

Rated 3 out of 5 by Nique Cheaply lined, but very flattering top
I ordered this as my wedding dress. I wanted something simple, comfortable but elegant. I love the top half of this dress! But, the bottom half is very cheaply made - the lining under the dress only goes to knee length, instead of all the way to the ground. You can see where the lining ends and it looks very cheap and gets scrunched up under the dress.
I'm keeping the dress because the top half is so flattering and unique, with the draped front and open back. But, I'm going to have a seamstress take out the lining and put in something full length. The bottom half is also quite form fitting. I'm a size 4 with a fairly small waist and larger hips. This dress fits true to size, but is a bit unforgiving on the bottom half, given the light material and white color.
It's a fine dress is you're willing to make some alterations to make it look classier. I definitely won't be wearing the gold belt with it.
