I was pleasantly surprised at how beautiful this dress was. The top was very flattering, fit well, with a built-in bar. The dress top I received was Not see through as seen in some reviews. The back included a bra strap clip as well as a zip for extra security. I really love the top. The skirt is also very nice, surprisingly heavy with a beautiful silky feel and look. It was voluminous, so although it has a high slit up the thigh, it is only noticeable when really dancing or swinging. The skirt sits high on my true waist. Unfortunately for me at 5'6" this meant that the top and bottom basically touched, so very little skin shows. So it is more modest. The skirt is long. At 5'6" in flat shoes, the extra fabric needed to be hemmed was about 5". Hemming is a bit more involved since the dress has a pretty train in the back that looks nice preserved. The burgundy was a gorgeous deep red, no browns nor purples. Overall I would recommend the dress to a formal event. Just budget in for hemming.
Absolutely stunning! Came sooner than expected! Was able to do a custom measurement size for me and even was able to change shipping address half way through the process. She was great to work with!
