Tadashi Shoji Asymmetrical Ruched Mesh Gown
Lovely and easy to wear
I chose this dress for my son's wedding in October. Very comfortable and flattering with tucks and folds in the right places. I am wearing it a bit more off the shoulder and it works perfectly. Extremely happy with the purchase after lots of looking!
Elegant dress but made for women who are tall with a long torso. I purchased this dress online for a black tie event that my husband and I are going to. I'm 5'2" and wear a 12. I ordered the large but it was a foot too long on me and being busty the ruching didn't lay flat across the front either. I took it to a Nordstrom store to have it altered or exchanged and to my surprise the store put me in an extra large so we could alter it to fit my frame. I'm not an extra large size but in order for the ruching to lay flat we had to go with that size. So if you are busty and a petite size you may have to do the same. Alterations had to take several inches off the length and shorten the zipper to fit my torso along with a couple of other things. Afterward, the dress looked nice. It would really be nice if the dress came in petite sizes but over all I'm pleased with how it turned out. A simple touch of elegance, classy, and a dress I can wear many years.
I just ordered this dress for a formal evening on an upcoming QM2 cruise and I just love it. It is very elegant. I am writing the review to let others know that the dress runs very long. I am 5'7" and even with 3" heels it is about an inch too long. I expected the train to drag on the floor but the front of the dress is dragging on the floor as well so I am headed off to have it shortened.
So if you want the dress and you are not very tall, , do allow time for an alteration.
I wear a size 12 and the large fits perfectly.
3/4 length sleeves but with a sheer mesh/layers make this a great all season dress, length is perfect for wearing a mid-heel. (i'm tall waisted, so dresses are often on the shorter side for me, but this is perfect!) the neckline gives some interest without being so distinctive that you couldnt wear it often without people recognizing the dress. Ruching makes this SUPER flattering.
