Questions about this item
None N asked: how big is the xl in a dresses size.
GoJane S: You can reference our size chart here for sizing guidelines: http://www.gojane.com/about-us.html#size-section
michelle m asked: Hey shoppers! im 5"4, 85 lb and A cup 32... Ha.. do you think xs will fit me or no..?
T I: Yes
Gemma H: My daughter was about the same size cup/bra size and it was just a little too loose on her so we had to return it unfortunately, because I loved everything else about it. So it might be a little too big.
B E: Yes
larry n: Hey Michelle, I think this dress would fit you. My daughter is a little shorter than you and about 5 pounds lighter, and 34A .
She had to have it taken in just a little bit at the waist and under the arms.
It wasn't a really small dress, if that is what you were worried about.
Cassandra B asked: i have a bust of 34, hips 32, and waist 26. what size dress should i get. do you think SM would fit me?
Gemma H: I'm not sure. My daughter was just a little smaller We got a SM b/c they were out of XS. and the bust was just a tiny bit loose on her. It sounds like it might fit well. It is a beautiful dress. We really liked it but we couldn't keep it. Hope you find a good one. :
chantal c asked: what would be your opinion for this dress on my 14 year old daughter... shes about 180lbs and 5ft''6?
Gemma H: I think she would be gorgeous in this! We loved the dress but had to return it because my daughter was too small for it and we didn't have time for alterations or we would have, it was that cute but she was also smaller than average so it didn't work for her, unfortunately. It was nice material, we chose white. Beautiful dress.
None N asked: would the XS dress fit a 13 year old girl 100lbs around 5'6'' and how would it look for an 8th grade dance?
Bobby B: yes the dress will fit her perfectly. it will fit snug along the torso and "puff" at the hips. i recommend steaming it so the skirt looks better than the picture on here
Gemma H: Well, I can tell you that my daughter was 13, 5'2", and ~ 95lbs when we got the dress and it was just a little loose around the top so maybe the extra 5lbs could make a difference.It was such a beautiful dress We got the white.. We hated to have to return it. We would have had it altered but we didn't have time that's how much we liked it. I think it's perfect for an 8th grade dance, provided it's a little formal. That's why we got ours.
None N asked: how long is the XS dress I know the small is 25" but xs?
Gemma H: I'm not quite sure because I no longer have the dress but my daughter was about 5'1'' and it fit her perfectly length wise. She was very slim so it didn't fit as snug as we would have liked around the bust and we didn't have time for alterations so I had to send it back. It was still a very beautiful dress. I would definitely recommend.
None N asked: am about 5ft 6'' with 100lbs. how well do you think the dress would fit?
Pamela C: Hi the dress is beautiful I got this dress in black with the white sash for my daugter for a retirement party that were attending this weekend. The only concern I have with the dress is that it should have a clasp on it to fasted the dress I had to bring it to the cleaners to have them put on a clasp for me so I can hook the dress so the zipper won't keep coming down. BUT my daughter LOVES the Dress :-
Jacquie C: I am about give or take 110 lbs. and 5'4. I ordered an extra small since it said the dress came in huge sizing, but that was too small. I ordered a medium and it's a bit loose, especially around the bust. I'm a B-cup. I would say order a small for your body type. It may be a bit short based on how tall you are. I think it should fir pretty good with a small. Also, look up some promo codes for a better deal. I got 30% off my dress because it was full-priced. There seems to always be that free shipping with $50 or morecode=GJSHIP50. There is also another one going one for full-pried items for 20% offcode=SUNNY20R. Hope this helps.
Nakii K: ok thank you
J W: I think the dress would look very nice, my only concern would be the length. My daughter is 5'4 and if the dress would have been any shorter she would not have been able to sit in it. Good luck
None N asked: Will this dress fit a 12 year old girl?
J W: Yes it will fit. I do think that it might be a little short my daughter is 15 and is 5'4 the dress was a little short.
P U: it depends on her size. i am 5'1" and weigh 100 pounds and it fit me
None N asked: What did you buy this dress for I'm looking for a 8th grade grad dress.
A J: I bought this dress for my daughter for a wedding. I actually bought the gold and it is definitely a beautiful dress. It kind of puts you in the mind of a prom dress but it looks really nice on.
None N asked: is the adjustable tie waist sash removable ?
K I: Yes it is.
bailey n: I can't see your picture of the dress, is there anyway of me seeing it ?
C A: I returned mine after trying it on, but I think it was. But it might of had loops for it.
None N asked: does this dress come with straps i am not comfortable in strapless
GoJane S: The bubble hem cocktail formal does not come with straps.
Barbara T asked: Hey, I was thinking bout getting this dress for prom in red. I am 5' and about 92 lbs. I was just wondering if it fits like it says and if an xs would be small enough to fit me, also, since im only 5', how long would it be if i wore it thanks!
Pamela C: I think the dress is nice my daughter is 15 and I think it will be nice for a 8th grade graudation.
P U: an xs is probably small enough to fit, i'm 5'1" and it fit fine
C A: I am a bout your size, 5'2, 100 pounds. I hated the dress. I have a previous post on here stating my complaints. I got an xs, it was HUGE. And to my knees. I DO NOT recommend it. I had to return the dress. I looked like a stepped out of a 1980's teenage love film. Not the look I was going for.
Barbara T: thanks a lot! i dont get why they make the dresses so long! were not all tall ! ahah
C A: hahahah I know!
Shannon B asked: Hello, I was thinking about getting this dress for my junior prom. What do you think of it Is it true to size How does it fit And how does it look Please help!
M A: I absolutely loved this dress! I bought it to wear to a wedding and I got a ton of compliments on it. It is very true to size and the corset style bodice essentially gives you the "perfect body" for the dress.
C R: This dress is really pretty. I got the pink ones for my bridemaid dresses. But to my surprise the dresses run a bit small. Great choice!!!!!!!!
V B: The dress is gorgeous. It fits really nice to your body but it was a bit shorter than I thought it would be from looking at the picture. I bought the red dress to wear for a Christmas Party and it was a big hit! The material is nice and shiny and doesn't strand easily. I would definitely recommend it! Good luck and have fun!
C A: I uploaded a photo of how my dress turned out on my. It's my main photo. Oh yeah, the stash thing it came with around my shoulders, was so weird.
C A: Hey, I was getting this dress for my senior homecoming. I was on court and had to get the perfect dress. Unfortunately, this was not it. I tried it on and the color pink I got was a cotton candy pink, not a soft pink like the photo looked. The size ran HUGE, I am a small girl so I'm used to clothing being a little large and needing some alterations. But this dress was enormous, falling off of me like I had never even zipped it up. I was so disappointed. Even my 2 year old niece laughed at me when I tried it on. I looked like I had jumped out of the movie never been kissed, the scene where she got eggs thrown at her. : I wish I would of been as smart as you and asked someone else who had bought the dress, because this was not the one for me. I hope this helps!
S E: I ordered a small medium and large for my bridesmaids followed the size chart and they all fit perfect. everyone really likes the dress. Im not totally happy with the Bubble part of it, it gets kinda flattened in shipping and it doesnt bubble in the back its just flat, but a quick fix at a seamstress. worth the money
A J: The dress is of really great quality so I think it would be great for your junior prom. My daughter bought the gold with the black sash and it was very cute. She received many compliments and yes it does fit true to size. My daughter is about 106 lbs and she wears an xsmall and it was a great fit!!
K A: It looks good. Material is not as shiny or soft as I expected though. If you are short the hem will reach at or below the knee. Overall I really liked it; there were just things I wish were better.
As for sizing, it was WAY too big. As in 6-8 inches too big around the waist. I was honestly surprised at how huge it was, but it can be easily tailored.
In terms of fitting, it is nice, with support "backbones". These can hurt sometimes though. It's designed for a person with very slim hips though, because it makes your derriere look quite big =P
Overall, I liked it and received compliments on it, but there were a few things that I wish I had known before! Hope this helped!
