I received my dress today in a plastic shipping bag that was about 9" by 7". That was my first clue. When I opened the bag I found the dress folded up to fit in the package. The material is very flimsy and a crinkly fabric that doesn't show up in the photo. The sash is also a crinkly mesh type fabric and is more of a hot pink. The dress CAN NOT be dry cleaned or machine washed, only spot cleaned by a professional cleaner. I tried it on and it fits well (size 6) although the breast area has no padding and you cannot wear a bra because of the crisscross straps across the back and the low back. Maybe you could sew in some cups if you wanted extra support. I think the dress is over priced for the quality. Trying to decide whether to send back or keep.
