When I pulled it out of the bag, I was pretty surprised by it's material. I guess when I purchased it, I didn't really pay attention to it's make-up. It's actually 74% rayon, 22% nylon, and 4% spandex. The material is thick and soft, like a scuba material. I rushed to put it on, but there was a small issue. I could not get the zipper above the waist detail. Part of the problem was that the waist is pretty snug on me, but also that it was just the detail was just making the zipper difficult to pull up through it and I had no one to help me. I thought I was going to break the zipper, but then I decided after some serious tugging (at least I know it's made well) that I should just twist the dress around and pull the zipper up and then turn it around again once I had it over the waist detail. That finally worked but not until after I started to sweat a bit.
It's pretty, with very nice lace details and a defined waist, it's actually extremely flattering, but the lace deep-v neck certainly doesn't make it very work appropriate. Here are the details up close:
I would definitely have to put a cami or something underneath it. In fact, if you weren't careful, you'd expose yourself if you twisted your body is just the wrong way. Definitely needs some fashion tape to keep it secure to the body. The length is perfect, right to the knee and the straps are perfectly placed so that no bra straps would peek out. I really thought about keeping this, but to be honest, I'm not even sure where I would wear it. What do you ladies think?
