Perfect Spring/Summer Dress!
I wore this dress for a charity event this spring in NC where the dress was "creative cocktail." The fabric is very light and I think it would be great for a beach wedding or outdoor summer event. The fabric on the bottom is sheer, but there is a fully lined white skirt so no need for a slip. I am shorter, so I found that this cut worked very well since it is shorter in the front. With 3 inch heels, I was not even stepping on the back of it. The bodice is gorgeous, and I was shocked that I did not need sticky tape on my chest. I did one of those sticky bra cup things up top and that worked just fine. This dress is also a bit forgiving due to the high waist. I have had 2 children so am conscious about how dresses will hug my mid section. I would not suggest this dress if you have a very small bust, as I think it might hang a bit strange, at least if you are petite and have a short waist. It is a very comfortable dress in a light fabric. Very fun to dance in, and I had no problems with the length so did not have to worry about tripping over it.
