Got this dress today, and am having the same problem. I read a review on Nordstrom, and she had the problem too. Even when I google the dress and see it on celebrities wearing it, I can see the puckering when I zoom in. Of course, this dress is too amazing to return. I will be taking it to my tailor. I got the size xs and s, and will be keeping the small. Both were long enough on me (i am 5'9"), but the xs was too small on the top (i could make it work if there was not other option though, but the small looks right). I just am happy the length is long enough.. its perfect.. i can wear with 3 inch heels or even with flats. I can fix the puckering but cant fix too-short of length!! This dress is my "WOW-factor" purchase for the summer.
As discussed by the other review, this dress has an issue at the edge of the bust (by your ribs) where it buldges out due to the fact that there is no boning/darting in the dress. It is an easy fix if you know a good tailor (luckily I do). One other issue is the way the dress is supposed to slip over your head and does not have any zipper closure making it somewhat of a challenge to put on and take off. I hope my fabulous tailor can fix that as well but if not, no big deal. The dress is gorgeous in person and I cannot wait to wear it. If it is available in you size, purchase it and don't miss out on this gorgeous gown that is selling out quicker than you can imagine!
I really love the look of this on the model, but the fit and quality is very wonky, and not at all like it appears on the site. The sides of the dress underneath the breasts "wing" out because there were no darts sewn into the bodice. The collar doesn't fit correctly around the neck it will not lay flat. The area where the skirt is sewn to the bodice is bulky. The material is also a cheap polyester. I loved the pattern on this dress, but I'll be returning it.
