When I opened the package, the hanger popped right up and the dress was in a nice plastic bag, the pleats were nicely pressed, so I really did not have to take it to the dry cleaners once I opened it from the box. I wore it to a friend's high school graduation party and received a plethora of compliments. Although, I didn't really want to tell them where I bought it from, just because I wanted to be the only one who owned it in my city. The V-neck line is flattering and not too revealing at all. The pockets on the side have to be my favorite part, because I can put my car keys in them, my cellphone, a pair of sunglasses, and a small handkerchief without the contents bugling out, this way I don't have to lug around a big purse, my dress can be the conversation starter and center of attention. The design catches the spectators' attention and guides their eyes from the bottom, front, right hem up to the left, front shoulder, then back down to the right hem on the back side. I would recommend this dress to any woman who wants to feel confident, strong, beautiful, and the bell of the ball (or garden party). It is fun and youthful and very comfortable to wear. Having it be made out of 97% cotton is wonderful, because I easily sweat in polyester clothing, but with 95-100% cotton material, my skin can breath easy and not cause me to sweat like a maniac. I love this dress and I intend to wear it until there is snow on the ground in my hometown. It is dry clean only, but go to your preferred dry cleaners, and it will stay fresh and light for a long time! Plus, the dress is worth taking it to the dry cleaners. If you are unsure if you will like it, order it and try it on, you'll get the Betty Draper look from Mad Men, or a look that is similar to the 1960's, and the '60's fashions are still hot items in this generation. Hope this review helped ladies!
