I wasn't too sure about this one, but I took the plunge, and I'm glad I did. I was concerned about the length, fit, strap width, fabric quality and the seam down the front and back. That's five points, one for each star.
The length was perfect. I'm 5'5" (65", 165 cm) tall, and the shortest point in the hanky hem is a little below my knees, which I think is perfect. Full star awarded on this one.
I'm a solid 22/24 in American sizes. The fit was a little tighter than I expected around my rib cage, but in a GOOD way; no gaping under the arms. The fall of the fabric from underarm downward is just the right amount of "trapeze" to accommodate my bust and belly without having an excess of fabric. I give this one a full star, too.
The strap width is over 2", which is great because I can wear a normal bra with it. (If I have to fiddle with a strapless bra, forget it, it's not worth it.) Also, the strap length needs no adjustment on me, which is a bonus. Another full star.
The fabric is...well, it's polyester, which I'm not a big fan of. In its favor is the fact that isn't mid-weight, so the dress drapes without hanging and floats without flying-up. But I will have to contend with the inevitable static it will create as it rubs against the midi-length full slip I have to wear with it for modesty's sake. Undeniably, the print is beautiful; polyester prints are always the brightest ones. A half star off for the static.
And finally, there's the seam. I think the diamond/square pattern mitigates the split in design created by the seam, so it's not a deal breaker. I deducted a half star, though, because it would've been better without the front seam.
Overall, I'm happy with my choice. I think this dress will look good dressed up for work and dressed down for a night out, and it's under $20, so it's a good deal. I gave it back a full star for those two things.
Very lite weight, love the thicker straps, great fit over all awesome looking dress.
This is a very light, well fitting summer dress. The fabric is see-through so you may require a slip underneath for modesty. Great for over swimwear.
