Not sure where I'll wear this but I absolutely love it. If you have sensory issues this may not be the dress for you. I can feel the sequins on the straps and under my arms, doesn't bother me. The inside is lined with a stretchy fabric that is cool to the touch and so comfortable. I'll be rocking this with docs and a jacket as I don't do fancy but if you do, you most certainly need this incredibly beautiful dress.
I have wanted this for years! I finally caved and got this baby. I am technically a large but went down to a medium because I wanted it to hug. I is stretchy, which makes me feel like it'll be comfortable sitting and enjoying a meal etc. Only thing is I am super aware of how uncomfortable the sequined straps are. My skin will be red and raw, but I'll look amazing.
I wore this on Thursday for a drag bingo/performance I host once a month. It looked beautiful in videos and I'm glad I selected the scarab coloring based on the way the shift of the sequins contour the body. I'm 6'3" and ordered a size 2X based on reviews saying there's plenty of stretch, and there is... I potentially could have gone down another size, but I was afraid to lose length in the skirt.. Because of my height, the dress fell just below the knee which was pretty.. it didn't look awkward or out of proportion, but from my understanding of the web photos and other reviews, it seems it was meant to be a longer grown (but again, I'm aware that I'm tall). Anyway, it still looked great, didn't fall into that weird limbo length territory that looks like it doesn't know what length it wants to be, if you know what I mean. My *one* bit of criticism would be that that straps are terribly uncomfortable.. They are made of the same stretch sequin and aren't faced/finished with anything on the edges so they SCRATCHED the heck out of my shoulders and back.. I have a huge red irritated area on my back shoulder where the sequins scraped into me and broke the skin. Otherwise, I'm really happy with my purchase, felt beautiful in it, and would consider ordering it in other colors :-)
I ordered a small and my measurements are 36, 27, 33. Does have stretch and the color to the sequins are like a reddish brown. If you wear a bra with this dress, the back will show the back of the bra band. Thank you Vixen for making an eye catching sparkly dress.
So in love,

I loved this dress so much! I got so many compliments on it. I felt amazing. I got a 4x but I feel like I could have gotten away with a 3x because it is stretchy. I wish I had it in different colors
Waiting for the black Sequin dress to come out.. I love this dress so much..
Micheline outdid herself with this number - this dress is what dreams are made of! And as good as this dress looks photgraphed, pics really do not do it justice! Measurements are 43/44-32-44 and I went with a Large.
It’s beautiful, forming and unique! It’s a bit on the large size, I’m an hourglass shape that usually gets an XL but it was so stretchy I needed to downsize to get a really good firmed fit. Now it’s perfect!
My partner bought this for me for my Birthday! Its beautiful, I’ve worn it for drag performances twice now, so many compliments!! It’s got great stretch and hugs every curve! I pined for this dress for months, so glad I finally got to own and rock it!! I love the other two colors it comes in as well!
I purchased this one size down, a Medium, and I’m usually a solid L. I could probably have gone down to a small but I didn’t want it skin tight. This is perfect in every way. I love the green one in this style , but this is like wearing a glittery rainbow. My husband said he loves how I look in it.
An absolutely beautiful dress. I wasn’t sure on the length as thought it would be too long but I love the mid calf length. I put it on just to feel happy.
I am in love with this gown! The Scarab is gorgeous. I am a solid medium in everything Vixen, but I had to send this back for a small. It has an insane amount of stretch! Despite what other reviews have said about the length, I personally love that it's on the shorter side (hits midcalf). The length allows me to pair my Docs with it. Because of the length I will be able to wear it more casually than if it were longer. I cant wait to wear the other colors!!!
Absolutely beautiful dress but the color was not as expected. It had more orange/gold tones than purple/chartreuse. Still stunning. Runs large so size down I’m normally xl and this L fits like a glove.
Everything about this dress is PERFECT except for the length! It’s beautifully made & fitted in all the right places, but the length is so awkwardly short. I’ve seen other reviews saying the same about the other colors. I really wish it were the length in the photos — so disappointed, especially since it’s so beautiful.
