My husband's jaw dropped when he first saw me in this dress.
All night long women came up to me and asked me where I got this gorgeous dress! Of course I told them... The fit was perfect, and it slid on like a second skin --- sexy but still elegant. I'm 52 years old and slim, but with curves. The length was just right, and age appropriate, hovering at mid-thigh on my 5'5" frame. I ordered a Medium since I was concerned about the bust fitting (my measurements are 36C-29-36. It fit true to size and in fact the construction was so well done that I didn't wear a bra and felt completely comfortable and covered. The drape of the fabric is wonderful! Also: I liked that the beading has plenty of shimmer, but is more muted and subtle than the usual gold bead work/sequins, which can make a garment look like a Vegas showgirl costume. Which is fine if you actually are a Vegas showgirl, but that's not the look I was going for. The dress is very comfortable to wear, moves well on the body, and would be beautiful on various body types and sizes.
