While the dress is very pretty and looks like the picture, it is extremely short, at least on me (I'm about 5' 7" and wear a size 4) and can only really be worn as a cover up for a bathing suit. The material was also rather thin and the lace tore the first time I wore it. The dress is very beautiful, and always earns me plenty of compliments. I especially love the open back. Overall it would have been perfect if not for the length.
