While this is a pretty dress for a great price I found that the bust area was very large and the color was not a true turquoise, it was more blue. The beading around the waistline did have excess string and a small mistake in it. I ordered a size 16 and should have ordered a 14 even though based on measurements the 16 should have fit correctly. I am 5'3 and the dress was very long, would need at least 2-3 inches taken off even in heels. Again, good dress for the price but simply won't work for me because the coloring is incorrect based on photos.
