Maybe I didn't read closely, but the small metal decorative accessories that are sewn into this dress ON THE STRAP that goes around your neck are unfortunately placed. They scraped my neck and I spent an hour and a seam ripper taking them off. The dress itself is ok but the lining is sewn tight so there is not as much movement as you would expect in a strapless sundress, so I got the sea ripper out again and took it off. Not happy especially for the price, but it will cover up a swimsuit at least.
I needed a formal dress and chose this in black. I am 5-3 and usually wear a 1x or 16-18. I also wanted a sleeveless dress because I get extremely hot, even in the winter, but this dress also added the drop straps that help cover your upper arms if you don't like the look of totally sleeveless. This dress was a junior size, so I figured I would need a larger size than normal judging by the dimensions on the size chart. I did need a 2x. The material has stretch in it, so it fit nicely in the waste and bosom, especially if you have a larger bosom. I do recommend a strapless (maybe push up) bra. The skirt had a flair starting from the waist, and I really needed this to help hide my belly. Flat sheath dresses make me look like I'm a few months pregnant (hee,hee). For my height I had to get it shortened by around 4-6 inches. This material does not wrinkle, so I could wrap it into a ball and it unfolds like new. It is dry clean. I felt comfortable and beautiful in this dress, especially for a larger sized woman who has trouble finding clothes.
Felt very comfortable wearing it as well as at the event I attended wearing it. Not quite as "bra-friendly" as it states as the shoulder straps rested farther out on the shoulders than any bra I have ever owned. However, with my strapless undergarment the placement of the straps allows for a very sexy look my husband appreciated.
I used this dress as a wedding dress since we were going to Vegas to get married. It traveled well and needed no ironing when we arrived. Very comfortable and easy to wear given that I am a size 18 and it has no zippers. It is not as forgiving of body rolls, so some type of body shaper will help refine the look. You will need a strapless bra due to the structure of the straps and if you are on the short side (like me), you may need to either alter the length or wear higher heels. Overall, it is worth the purchase if you want something simple, but elegant. I received many compliments about the dress and felt it was well worth the cost for my special day.
