Great flowy dress but shapeless without a belt!
This dress is very pretty, but it was looking very toga-like and shapeless. I ended up stopping by Target and buying a belt right before we attended the wedding to create some shape. I pulled the material a little over the belt to hide it, and it ended up looking a lot better. Don't get me wrong because it would have looked fine without a belt, but since I'm a little a the short side, I didn't want to look like I wore a towel to the wedding. However, using a belt meant the dress was a little shorter -- the bottom part of the dress (with me wearing 4.5 inch heels) was off the floor, but the short part of the dress was VERY short. It wasn't so noticeable because it's a flowy dress, but I was only able to cross my legs one way in fear of flashing everyone. The material was great and the dresses I was sent had no issues at all. Overall, I would recommend this dress so long as you have a black belt ready to go just in case the dress looks too toga-like for you too!
