Beautiful, flattering dress, tons of compliments! However, showing lots of wear and tear.
The dresses have clearly been worn A LOT. I was surprised that there was no attempt during dry cleaning to fix any of the hook and eye closures on the top. I had to use pliers to keep them together, otherwise they would just slip out with minimal movement. The lace is also showing lots of signs of wear and tear, especially around the top hooks. I am glad I wore my hair down because the lace was slightly warped. I had also noticed a few other people's comments on that.
However, we were at a holiday party for work, and it was darker and it was packed and the little dress issues weren't visible to anyone but me. I did get a lot of compliments! It was very comfortable on although not very forgiving if you don't have a perfectly flat stomach, at least it's dark, so as long as you aren't getting photographed from the side, it wasn't an issue. I did not agree with the dress running on the small side as noted by lots of other girls. I wore my actual size, but wished I had ordered up a size for my second.
Overall: mostly satisfied.
