Everything about the process was great, from choosing the dress to wearing it. I especially appreciated the inclusion of various fashion adhesives. It really helped keep the belt in place at the elastic waist, as well as keep the belt end from flapping around. I also wanted to position the belt buckle above the point where the slit ended, and the tape helped with that.
I love that this dress is sexy and gives the illusion of a ridiculously high slit, when in fact it is quite demure. The fitted waist is flattering, the neckline is respectable, and it is not too tight. After having chosen and reserved this dress, I went on an accessories buying flurry and planned my hair, makeup, and mani/pedi, and it all went off without a hitch. I got a ton of compliments from everyone. I detract one star because I am not a huge fan of that tiny breast pocket, and that elastic waistband doesn't do much for me on its own. I did cover it up with a belt (which I believe was the point).
