I wore this gown to a "gala" black-tie event. It was perfect. Age appropriate. The beading on the bodice is lovely. The color is more "nude/taupe" than mauve. Nice alternative to the usual black dress. I am 5'4" and I had to hem the skirt by about 4 inches, even when wearing 3" heels. I also had to take up the sleeves about 1.5 inches. If you are skilled at hemming Chiffon, you'll be fine. Otherwise, leave yourself enough time to get a professional. I ordered a 14. I am 165 lbs and 5/4 tall. 38 bust. Fit true to size.
