I loved this dress and received many compliments.
At first glance at the pictures, this dress appears to be a brocaded fabric. It is not, it is a textured print with hints of gold through out. The fact it ws not brocaded was a plus as it was not heavy and the dress was comfortable and cool on a very hot and humid night. The deep scooped back makes your neck look long and elegant, but is not so low you can't wear a bra with it.
I wore the size 10 and it fit quite well, except it was a little loose in the waist for me. It was also a little shorter on me than on the model, but I did not mind that. The hidden pockets did not create extra bulk to the skirt and you could not tell they were there.
The netting holds the shape of the skirt, but does not create the dreaded "pouf" which makes your hips and bum look wider than they are.
I wore gold strappy sandals with it, and the dress looked sophisticated and stylish without appearing to try too hard.
