I feel beautiful, and cool on even the hottest days in this dress. The princess seams are extremely flattering - especially with the ruffle that keeps the skirt looking full. The adjustable straps mean I can adjust it to fit me - and then they stay in place well. Yes, the fabric is thin - and 100% cotton! - thats what I wanted. The darker color on this one means I can wear it without a slip. Easy wash & dry (10 minutes in dryer & remove slightly damp to smooth ruffle flat with fingers; youll have no wrinkles!). Dress dries really fast. Only slight wrinkles develop while wearing dress, but, with this print, dont show. Runs true to size. I ordered a size larger than I used to wear, due to my growing middle-age pear-shape, and can see that if Id wanted a closer fit, my usual size would have sufficed. NO Plastic packaging! These dresses come in a net bag with a button closure (and a pretty tassel; Im using the bags for gift wrapping & storing keepsakes). Want 3 more dresses like this!
I needed black to usher for the summer opera series. This dress is perfect! Cool, comfortable, stylish and durable. Looks much like the photo. It is a loose fit, below the knee. Washes nicely.
This dress is simply lovely! I bought a medium as per the size chart and it fit perfectly everywhere but was super tight through the bust (for reference, I wear a 38B bra). I ordered a large hoping it would fit through the bust and I could maybe take it in through the waste and hips, if needed. However, the large is huge everywhere. I?ll have to send both back.
