    We LOVE the design and flow of this dress. But why, oh why, Natalie don't you make an XL size??? We ordered precisely off of our student measurements and the sizing you provided... at least 5 dresses have to be reordered because they run too small, and those who already would wear a Large are now out of luck. It's a gorgeous product... please make accessible for dancers of all sizes!

    I was wary about the other reviews, so I decided to order a Medium (which I always order for leotards). While the dress itself and the color is flattering, my impression of it just got worse when I wore it. My issue was that the top was so tight that when it stretched, the fabric actually became discolored. I ordered the pink one and when I wore it, you could clearly see that the color was lighter from the waist up. Not to mention the lining did not do its job at all. You'd have to wear a bra or add some sort of support to make it work. I returned it. Honestly, don't waste your money.

    My daughter's dance company bought many of these dresses for an upcoming holiday performance. We needed them in all children's and adult sizes. We got the eggplant and teal which are absolutely gorgeous colors, plus they twirl beautifully, but the problem is that they don't fit very many of our dancers. The shoulders are too wide and we've had to add elastic to lots of the girls' dresses so they don't fall off the shoulders. The leotard inside is very short for the sizing and we've had to actually cut a few of them and add more material. The dress, particularly the inner leotard, runs very small overall. The bust on the adult size is made for someone with an A cup or smaller. Anyone larger and they're either spilling out of the top or the seam under the bust ends up in a very awkward, unflattering place. We are going to be adding gold accent material to the tops of our dresses because they just aren't offering the coverage our company is looking for. My teenage daughter is 5'5" and wears a size 8 in regular clothes and the size large in this dress is helplessly small on her, particularly the inner leotard. She normally wears a M or L costume, depending on the size for that particular costume. Please, please redesign this dress. We thought we were ordering a modest dance costume, but we're having to make several adjustments to many of the costumes.

    This dress is so pretty, and versatile. However it has a flaw in fabric choice. The lower bodice, the Leo part under the skirt, is a 2-way stretch, not 4-way. The stretch is in the width, not length. There for the fit is fairly specific and longer torsos will be uncomfortable. Movement may be restricted too. There is no reason for a Leo to be a 2-way stretch, ever.

    We absolutely love the look of this dress. We had two challenges with it. It runs very small. Once we knew that, we jus ordered up 2 sizes. However, that presented us with our second challenge, the neckline runs quite low. As a result, ordering up 2 sizes increases this problem.

    I normally read reviews but I didn't and this is definitely way to small for someone with A. Breasts and I'm 5' 7" and it's too short with the body suit underneath to even pull over my shoulders. I bought two and I will be returning them both. I won't risk reordering as I ordered a medium to be safe and with how small it was, I'm thinking a large would be too small too. Normally I wear a size 6 in a regular dress.

    I purchased this dress for a performance piece. The material, cut, and color (eggplant) are beautiful and very flattering. Problem is, the dress is so small I could barely get it on! I normally wear an adult extra-small to small in everything, so I ordered an extra-small. It looked like a child medium in person. I'm sure that even going up to an adult large wouldn't fix the problem. I'm highly disappointed with this brand and will have to consider if I will purchase from them again. The small sizing range keeps so many people from enjoying this costume.

    NICE, BUT.....

    This was an awesome dress. My daughter loved it, but it is way undersized in the bust. Ordered the medium, returned for the large and saw no significant change in size. Even the large was too small in the bust and not inline with their measurement recommendations. Had to return both.

    I bought this dress in light blue in 2012. It ran small then but I ordered larger and it worked out. It is an absolutely beautiful dress that flows beautifully. I also teach old school modern and it is hard to find dresses that look like this in the lyrical and contemporary categories. The studio I work for just purchased this dress in navy blue for a piece I choreographed. I fitted the girls with my light blue ones to make sure the larges would fit the bigger girls. I was very happy to find that it would all work out. That is until they came in. The navy blue is gorgeous. I love, love this dress but the larger girls cannot even get them on. I am extremely disappointed, sad and a little angry that Natalie has cut their sizes even more. These are stock items and should cater to the regular dancer not just the tiny ones. People of many different sizes take dance just for the love of dance and perform in recitals. There isn't even an option for an extra large. I am brokenhearted.

    I purchased this dress for a church Christmas performance for my pre-teen daughter. It was absolutely stunning under the lights. The cut of the fabric has a beautiful movement while turning and leaping. This dress is simply elegant and would be a great investment!

    Love love love this dress I got the navy and am absolutely in love with it. I pinched the front and the back for a more pretty line but other then that i think it just looks beautiful would defiantly recommend.

    The white dress looks absolutely stunning under stage lighting, but it is not lined whatsoever. I wore a fully front lined nude leotard underneath for modesty's sake, but I also suggest wearing pasty petals or sewing in bra cups. I found it a bit tight in the arm and leg holes (I am 5'3" and 115 lbs). Additionally, the fabric of the skirt is single-layered and not hemmed, which makes me wonder how long the dress will last. Still, one cannot deny the beauty of the drape and the elegance of the neck line. I wore this in a dance full of spins and fan kicks, and the result was breathtaking.

    I purchased this dress in light blue for a liturgical dance piece at church. It flows beautifully. I also purchased the white chiffon scarf also on this site. We tacked that at the front of the neckline and at the shoulder tops, letting the remainder trail down the back. The length matched perfectly with the length of the dress! I did order a large. I wear a 4 in street clothes, maybe a medium would have worked, but this is fine. I'm well endowed on top. I was a little worried about the high waist style as often on me, that seam ends up right across my bust. It is still higher than it should be, but it looks fine. The fabric has some weight, but not enough to be annoying. Amazingly it has no hem, yet it does not roll. The length is perfect. It is low in the back so a normal bra will not work. I wear a nude bodysuit under it, bra built in. I'm not crazy about the built in leotard as that eliminates the ability to use the bathroom easily. I still may cut it and add hooks. All in all great product, performs well, and very flattering.

    Can 10 year olds where this dress?

    I need to order this dress for 9 girls total. ( 6 teenagers and 3 ten year olds). For my ten year olds, I am concerned that the dress will be too large. Could this dress be used for the 10 year old age group? If not what would be the closest to this dress for the 10 year olds? Also I need these dresses in within a week. Will you all be able to fulfill this order in a short period of time?

    We cannot guarantee sizing as we do not know the sizes of the dancers. It runs as small as a petite. If you have any additional questions regarding items or shipment, please call our customer service department at 1-800-328-7107. As always, orders received the earlier, the better.
