Unique and fun. Soft scuba fabric

Wore this to a more formal speakeasy while vacationing in Austin. Fabric was ideal for warmer weather, I didn't perspire but if I had there would've been no worries about visibility. The cut outs are super fun and are perfectly balanced with the modest top and knee length skirt. Bottom of Skirt hit at a very flattering point even on me, I'm 5'6" and all legs. On a shorter gal it might be off balance. Waist band definitely has no give at all (blue band above skirt). If you're mostly sitting it may become uncomfortable.

Gorgeous!

This dress ran true to size. The material is thick with a little flexibility. The cut out is very classy. Beautiful dress for a wedding!

Awesome cutout, dress a little long

I probably ordered a size slightly too big for me, but that noted, I did still think the dress was a bit long for the cutout. It was work length but cutout was more for party.

RENT THIS DRESS!

I LOVED wearing this dress to a wedding at an art museum. I fit in both the 0 and 2 but the 2 pulled less across my hips and it was easier to sit in, although the bust area was a little larger. The band is a little constricting but hit me right at my waist so it was manageable. The dress stretched ever so slightly over the course of the evening and by the end it was super comfy for dancing. The fabric is thick but not too hot for a summer wedding. I got tons of compliments from guys (usually they come from girls!?) with this dress. It was a definite hit.

Beautiful pattern but no give around the waist!

I was so excited to get this dress. It was the perfect high fashion look I needed. The pattern and structure was amazing. My biggest problem was that there was NO GIVE around the cut out. There was stretch in the rest of the dress but I felt like I was wearing a belt! It hit me on the biggest part of my waist, my ribs. If you're worried about wearing a cut out, don't do this one.

Lots of compliments

I received lots of compliments on this dress throughout the night. I found it very comfortable. I didn't get a back up size because this was a substitute for another dress but I would have liked to try on the size 4. I would recommend a back up size smaller instead of larger for this dress.

super cool and comfortable

Love the neoprene fabric of this dress. It gives it a modern edgy feel but is still classy and comfortable to wear. The length was just slightly below the knee on me (5'2"), which was a nice balance to the extra skin that is shown by the cut out. I do think it would have been a little better on someone a few inches taller than me, as I felt like I had to stand very straight all night long to make sure the cut out lay correctly. I have longer legs and a shorter torso so this might just be how it fits on my proportions.

I ended up not wearing it to my event

It fit well, I am 5'4 so it was slightly long on me and a bit big in the bust area as I wear a 34B. Overall its a very well made gorgeous dress perfect for a day or night event.

Perfect dress for opening night on Broadway

This dress is stunning! It's a thick material, which is comfortable. You can wear a regular bra, which is a plus. I wore it to opening night of a Broadway musical, and I must have heard "great dress! " about 15 times. I love the edginess of it, and will definitely look into wearing Gabriela Cadena again.

Get all the compliments while being comfortable!

Beautifully made dress that is extremely comfortable to wear. I wore this dress to a party and received tons of compliments and questions about who makes the dress and where to buy. The cut out on the side sits perfectly right above your waist so that you don't feel like you need to suck it in and you can wear any bra with it - always a plus.

Probably great for a curvier girl.

I liked this dress. However, the fabric was thick. The thickness made it feel high quality, but wasn't very flattering on me. If I had larger boobs this would be much more attractive. I would likely try renting it again for an even in the fall or winter. I wore it in the summer in LA. Luckily, it was a cool summer night on the beach.
