Rated 5 out of 5 by Coupious Super bright & happy
This might well be the happiest dress I've ever pulled out of a box. Its blues and golds are brighter in person than they are in the image, and I was afraid they were going to be too much for me until I actually put the dress on. And though they are bright, it's such a wonderful fit and a perfect summer dress. The fabric is light and airy, and though it is unfortunately not lined, I don't see any issues with it being see-through. The length is good, though I am 5'5" and thus not technically petite--I just loved the dress and had to try it. The fit is roomy through the torso; I'd say this runs rather large and one might size down, though the adjustable straps do help with making changes to the way things fall. It is a couple of inches above my knees, as well, without being too short at all. The button closures are reinforced through the torso with the snaps, which is great, and the lack of zipper means this is a wonderfully comfortable dress for travel and walking. The corset type cut in the bust is flattering, and the big pockets on the front lay well, at least once ironed. The details of this item are spot-on, which one expects with Tracy Reese but occasionally does not find. It's easy to wear and the type of dress that immediately gets comments from passersby. It feels quite special, and makes the wearer feel so as well.
