Breezy and romantic
I recently wore this dress to a outdoor summer wedding and couldn't be more happy with my selection. I feel that this dress looks much better in person than in the pictures on this website.
Material: The dress is light and flowy, perfect for warm evenings. I did wear a slip underneath, because the dress is a bit sheer. It's not lined at all. I didn't have any trouble with static or it being clingy.
Fit: I am 5'9", 130lbs and very straight-figured. I normally vary between a size 2 and 4 in dresses. The 2 in this dress fit me, but was a little shorter than I wanted. The 4 was much looser and longer, and draped nicely on my frame. A tad big in the bust area, but not noticeable. The length was great, hit just a couple of inches above my knees.
I was comfortable all night long in this, even after eating, drinking and dancing. Did not have to adjust myself at all like with some dresses. In fact, I didn't think about it at all. Which is saying a lot. I got many compliments. Overall, great dress. Simple, classy and lovely color.
My only (small) complaint it the smocked waistline. On me, it fell right above my stomach. So right below the smocked part, it seemed to emphasize my belly, especially after eating. Probably not noticeable to anyone except me, but still.
