I was incredibly excited when this dress arrived at my front door! It was packaged well, and didn't have a 'funky' packaged smell when I opened it. Honestly, the dress is amazing! I was expecting a thin, decently made dress, but it is a great weight, and the construction is impeccable. The lace isn't too spaced out, but you can see the beige (not off white, not pink) lining of the top. The lace does come up a little high on the back of the neck, but it would still look great regardless of hairstyle. The bottom lining hits at a bit of a weird place, but It's not noticeable. The slit is sexy, but not too high for a conservative or formal event. The length is perfect for me (5'5,) with 3.5,-4, heels. BUT THE SIZE CHART IS WAY OFF! While the bottom of the dress has a lot of stretch, the top doesn't, so I ordered an XXL to fit my bust (I am a 34GG UK or a 34J US in bras, generally a size 14/16 in US clothing.) I should have ordered a large! To wear this dress, I will have to have at least six to eight inches taken in around the waist, and I will also need to have the bust taken in substantially. I'm admittedly a little heartbroken that I won't have enough time to have it tailored or exchange it in time for an upcoming military dinner, but I can absolutely resell it. This dress is a GREAT buy, just make sure you order a size down!
Fit as expected. Material is soft, won’t wrinkle easily, and does not feel cheap. Looks just like photo on model. I’m 5’9” and the length came to just above the knee, which was perfect to wear to an outdoor wedding. Got lots of compliments and think it could be dressed up or down for many types of occasions. Love the navy color.
