Bizarre cut. LOTS of clevage, photo is misleading.
I think the dress looked nice, but it was such a bizarre fit. I had to surprisingly size down to the 6 when I ordered an 8 because the waist fit better, but the top/straps were still too large. If I wasn't careful about my posture the straps would slip down my arm or hang very loose and look sloppy. I was also very surprised at how low cut the top was. I normally don't mind cleavage, but it was wide cut in addition to being very low.. the girls (and I'm only a B) were very "in your face" so I ended up wearing a bandeau swim top that was a light pink and I thought looked like a part of the dress. The back of the straps are sheer, so a nude bra was mostly not visible, but white or any other color was really obvious. Unfortunately, I also didn't notice until the event that this wrap dress loves to blow in the wind. As I would walk (inside or out) the layer would open up and there is NOTHING underneath or to the side. You could very easily flash everything your underwear in one brief instant. Bah. So, you have to walk with basically one arm keep the dress closed. I chose this dress because on the model it looks fairly modest while sexy and the light flowery pattern made it a great choice for a family wedding, but nope. With the cleavage and the near flashing, it was skanky. It was pretty and I think the photos turned out well, but it was hassle to wear constantly having to keep it from billowing up and keeping my shoulders back to keep the straps in place.
