Rated 5 out of 5 by Imissmountains elegant, modern, a little sexy
I bought this dress for our work holiday party, and it fit the bill perfectly. It is thin and delicate, but that is part of the design. It is two layers - a sheer black under slip that is trimmer in cut, and an overlaying tunic, cut more generous, that is composed of three different types of fabric: sheer black, black slick, and black velvet. You can see in the photo where each of the fabrics are. Where you have sheer-on-sheer, it is slightly sheer, but not too transparent (watch panty lines on the sides). You can wear a normal bra with the dress. It is a bit short - I'm 5'4 and it came mid-thigh. The more generous cut of the tunic tones-down the sexiness and makes it more classic, elegant, and unique; modern art meets classic elegance. I wish the shoulders were a less wide, but it works fine. Fits TTS to slightly large. Looks great with a pair of simple black suede heels.

This dress is just perfect. I agree that the material is delicate and feminine, but by no means is it cheap. The entire back over-layer is silk, so it creates an opaque background for the somewhat shear blocking of the front and sides of the over-layer. It drapes beautifully and seems flattering for most body types. It's a great party or date night dress. I enjoy it both with or without tights and a pair of booties. At this price, you would be foolish not to snatch it up.

Rated 1 out of 5 by falln2va Not worth it for the price
this item arrived and I was super excited about it for a holiday dress. it is so very cheaply made it is shocking. the material is paper thin. I actually had to go back to the website to ensure that this was meant for wearing out and not a slip. not impressed at all.
