Fabric feel is great and construction f ine. Runs small. I ordered a medium and could have used a large (I am 5 feet 4 inches and wear a size 8). The issue is that for the waist to fall at your waist, it does not leave much length for the skirt (it is very short). I will probably use this as a swimsuit cover up and definately not a dress.
I'm pleased with this dress! Thought it was a little risky, that the neckline might be too low, but it isn't. Though I probably will tie it instead of leaving it loose, which still looks good and isn't quite so revealing. I would recommend leggings or opaque tights as it is rather short in the back. I'm 5'6 and will wear this as a tunic rather than a dress. Overall has a slimming effect, comfortable to wear.
