"I bought this dress in Black/ Medium . Im 5'3" 135 llbs, fit is good except the dress has a bad smell, like a very bad cologne. I aired it out and cant rid of the smell. I thought this was pre worn by the way it came in the bag and the condition of the dress so I called and they sent out a new one right away and this second one was new in the fresh bag but it smells bad to! The first one smelled the worst really strong, this one is a little less but still a really bad smell of cheap stale cologne. The reason this is not 5 stars is the odor and the random defective button closure at the neck. I love the dress but also there is another issue with the replacement dress they sent today...The button that pulls the back together at the neck will not last as the loop in the lace is holding on by a few very, very weak and thin threads. The first dress ( the really smelly one) im sending back had a much stronger and secure and lasting attachment for the button. I feel like I cant win with this situation. Ill be sending this one back as well and still want to go for a replacement but have someone go over the dress to make sure what they send out is going to work this time! Its too expensive to not get these problems solved. Im curious to know if the other colors have this horrible odor...hopefully airing it out and some fabreeze or dry cleaning will take care of it."
