Lovely red dress, but a little worn
The dress is a beautiful piece of work, with the lace overlaying the silk fabric. The dress feels substantial and not flimsy, with a lovely full skirt to dance in. The color is beautiful, and was perfect for a Valentine's Day party. I wore the size 2, which is my usual size, but I think I might have felt a bit better in the size 4, and I made the mistake of ordering a size 0 as my backup. The waist of the size 2 was about an inch above my natural waist, and was a bit tight, so it didn't feel quite as flattering as it might have if the waist were a little lower. The other thing is that the dress I received was wearable, but a bit worn -- you could see where the connections on the lace were a bit stretched out, and the color of the lace a bit faded. All that said, I still enjoyed wearing the dress and received many compliments on it.
