Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely, but... I wanted to love this dress. I ordered a 6P as I'm very short-waisted and worried it would otherwise be too long in the torso, and that was exactly the right idea. Fit-wise, it was perfection. The tie tucked in at my waist, and the sleeves and neckline were extremely flattering. Overall, looking at myself in this dress, it was a keeper. But then, there was the fabric. I noticed that it involved some poly when ordering it, but I was hoping it wouldn't be bothersome, and would give the lace a little more heartiness. Unfortunately, it really is bothersome, and I still worried I could do damage to the lace pretty easily. In fact, the dress itself felt ok, but the slip is quite slippery (pun intended) and doesn't feel terribly breathable. For what should be an everyday wear in summer, I worried that would be a problem, and I was disappointed in the fact it felt that way, given the price point of the dress. Having found a less expensive white dress that I ordered alongside for comparison, I sent this number back. If one wanted to invest in a different slip, it would be a lovely item, but I felt that the cost was too much to go on a hunt for the right cut of a new slip, etc. Also, if one is less sensitive (or more heat resistant), this one might be a winner for you. It's certainly beautiful to look at! May 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A Chic Summer Piece... I must admit my love of summer whites and lace, so I simply had to have this dress (pending on the fit of course). IMO it fits true to size (5'4": 36-29-40, short torso), is ultra feminine, and the slip is completely forgotten as an undergarment. You can dress it up/down pending on the venue, but with such intricate detailing accessorizing can be to a minimum. July 14, 2014
