Beautiful dress I got this dress for a wedding, and although I have to agree with other reviews that the sizing is a bit off, it is an elegant and classic dress. I ordered down a size after others commenting on the chest being too large so the waist was tight, but I was able to squeeze into the dress. Overall I recommend this dress because it is a beautiful little black dress, but be aware that it may not fit perfectly! November 3, 2013
As a professional musician, I have to have a lot of black in my wardrobe. This dress is fantastic for evening events - it's demure, shows no cleavage, but still opens up the neck and face, and the see-through lace sleeves are the perfect touch of sexy. The waist nips in beautifully. I wore this to play for a university president's council dinner event, and I got SO MANY compliments. For a bit more color/texture, you can add a beaded or embellished belt around the grosgrain waist of the dress. November 2, 2013
Absolutely fabulous This is another dress from TL that looks like a designer dress without the price tag... It's perfect. The lace feels great. The fit is impacable and makes the waist look slim. Highly recommended for a formal dinner, etc. September 16, 2013
Wedding Perfect Who would have thought you could find a great black tie event dress in the middle of the summer in the mall. Well thanks to The Limited and this wonderful piece I was able to get my Grandmothers approval. With a simple addition of Black pumps, a pearl necklace, and pearl earrings I was Wedding ready. Fits wonderfully and can be used for multiple occasions. Must have piece. September 8, 2013
Must try on I never write reviews.. But I must say .. This dress looks perfect on . The hanger does not do it justice . I agree with the other reviewers as the bust is a little larger , when trying on my normal size . So I needed to go down one size, and it fit perfect :) looking forward to wearing this classic piece . A great buy :) September 2, 2013
Glad I tried it on I saw this dress online and fell in love, but then when it arrived I thought, "matronly & funeral like." I was ready to take it back but my husband convinced me to try it on first, and I am glad I did, it looks beautiful on. Other than being a little large in the bust and arm area it gives you a lovely shape. August 31, 2013
almost The dress is beautiful. I got my usual size but had to return it because the top was too big around the chest area. August 20, 2013
Lace sheath I loved the sophistication of the dress the moment I saw it online, but wanted to scope it out in person first. I grabbed my typical size 8 [140lbs, 5'8, 36B] and the fit was perfect. I would say this piece runs very true to size. The bodice and skirt were form fitting and elegant, and even the sleeves weren't too Morticia Addams. I loved it! I have leaner arms, and there was plenty of room in the sleeves [even enough to comfortably reach back and do the back zip!]. I might have mine slimmed a bit, but if you have a more athletic build, you probably don't have to worry about the sleeves being too tight. The lace is fairly delicate, so while I would be mindful of jewelry that might catch or other sharp objects, I think the lace will hold up fairly well. I would give dress a thorough inspection before purchasing in-store. The dress I tried on had caught on another hanger and snagged because they were tightly packed - so ordering online was a better idea [or have the store order it for you]. The hem of the skirt came to my knees, and although this dress is really modest, it's modest in a demure way. Definitely a timeless and sophisticated piece. August 5, 2013

A: 
I've seen it in New England locations. There's also a "find in store" feature (next to "add to bag") on the product page that will show you which locations may have the dress in your size in store.

Do not really know for sure, but the dress is listed as an Online Exclusive, so I would assume not.

A: 
The lining is a sateen material, most likely a polyester blend. It's one of the more standard linings you find in Limited skirts/dresses, but slightly more substantial since it has to give the dress some structure.

Sorry, I mentioned previously that the lining was a satin-y like lining, but when I went to wear it to an event yesterday I realized it is actual more like a ponte knit, and it has a bit of stretch and structure to it.

A polyester knit blend. Lightweight but not too sheer. No slip necessary in my opinion.
