Review: Sammy Dress [Negative!]

So, first things first. Sammy Dress uses a milanoo like template. I had a bad feeling about this even though I didn’t see negative reviews (there are many now), so I decided to write down everything the night I ordered (December 13th, 2015).

I ordered


Vintage Round Collar Sleeveless Butterflies Print Ball Gown Dress For Women

7.99 (limited time offer), normally $26.17 (69% off)

When I used a discount code I found online, this changed to $9-something, but it made my overall total less because the other dress discounted, so c’est la vie.

Bust/waist/hips/length/sleeve length

It had a positive review from someone 5’4″, 160lbs. 36D
I’m 3’5.5″, 145lbs, 34E

total with 12% off was ~$14, + ~$9 for shipping and a few bucks for insurance and tracking, so my total was $27.47.

And here is what I got:


That’s a normal 12″ ruler. As soon  as I saw how small the package was, my heart sank a little. I know approximately how big the package with these two dresses should be, and this is a bit small.


If you have a good eye for material, you may have noticed this is a totally different fabric.The original is opaque royal blue fabric with some stretch to it.

This is a sheer net-like fabric that is rough and scratchy. It stinks of chemicals so badly that I got a headache just handling it. It’s partially lined.

The 3/4 sleeves are comically tube-like, and are full length.

As you can see, it’s sewn in white thread, and it’s not sewn well.

There is something white all over the dress.
I should note that the dress is too large on me, and yet there were already holes in the armpit and anywhere the fabric isn’t baggy, the stitching shows because of the thin, mesh-like fabric.

Verdict: Stolen stock photo of a higher end item. The product is a counterfeit knockoff version.


This dress is made of a super thin material. It’s very strange for a dress. Feels more like a lining material or a costume material. The dress is cut awkwardly, so it gaps a ton at the arm holes above the bust. It looks and feels like a cheap bag costume. The butterfly print is blurry, and the back of the skirt has no butterflies. They just stop, getting cut off awkwardly at the side seam.

Verdict: Unclear. Either very photo-shopped or a stolen stock photo of a higher end item. 

At the end of the day, I would NOT recommend sammydress.
