I was so excited to get this dress. I have a lot of fabric sensitivities, and it’s so hard to find a dress nowadays that is not primarily made out of Polyester. I went to JCpennys, Belks, and Sears. Looked online, and Polyester, Polyester, Polyester, is all I saw. I really hate that fabric. Companies are switching to it because it is a cheaper fabric, and dresses snag easier, and wear faster. It means more turnover, and more profit for them. This dress is actually made out of 95% Cotton and 5% Spandex. The dress is just so beautiful. Nothing moves like Cotton, feels like Cotton, or Breathes like Cotton, but Cotton. I was also so relieved that the dress arrived in perfect condition.
It really is a quality dress. All of the stitching was done tight and on point. The zipper works perfectly. There were no odors, stains, holes, tears, snags, or imperfections. It is just perfect. Their size chart is off to the side, so do not use Amazon’s size chart. I wear a 36C bra, so I ordered the Large. I never go by waist size. I am short waisted anyhow, lol. But, since this dress either has to go over your hips, or slid on overhead, you need to make sure it can clear your hips or your shoulders. The zipper only goes down to the top of the waist line. I was able to step into this dress with no issues. I did however, need help to fully zip the dress. I couldn’t fully reach the zipper behind me. The zipper stays put on this dress. It won’t slide down on you and be embarrassing. I did not need a slip with this dress either. The front area, along the breast line, wrapped around to the back, is lined. That, and the material is thick enough not to be see thru. It really is made really well. The piping and seaming were done perfectly. I just love it. No, when it comes to washing it, they suggest hand wash only with cool water. Now, I do not hand wash, but I have a machine with no agitator. It’s basically a flat agitator. If you have a washer like that, you could put this dress in a lingerie bag with the zipper on the dress, zipped up. Then, wash it on the delicate setting, alone in the washer; problem solved, lol. The dress measures out at 42” long from the top of the back neckline, to the bottom hem. It’s a great length dress for most women, which is a great attribute to this dress. They offer it in sizes S-XXL, as well as 7 other patterns and design of dress as well. Overall, this is a well-made, beautiful dress. It fits a female figure beautiful, and is figure flattering, and forgiving. We are all not tall bean poles, and this dress doesn’t care.
