I read all the reviews before I bought, and got what I expected. The ivory has a yellowish tint (which I wanted); it was a little wrinkled from being packaged and being cotton (I fluffed it in the dryer and touched it up with the iron). It's lightweight and pretty (dainty but not girlie). Make sure and measure the length....I wouldn't want it any shorter! But I thought reading all the reviews let me know what to expect, so no disappointments and no surprises!
