I fell in love with this dress instantly, wore it to my university graduation and got plenty of compliments! I was afraid of the size 36 being too small by the measurements provided, but it fit well and was even a little loose-fitting. You get what you see in the pictures - the crochet top is gorgeous, the skirt is not see-through (problem with most maxi dresses), the material is of good quality. I did find myself a little self-conscious about the material in the front behind the crochet being see-through and requiring a bra or not covering sufficiently on the sides, but my worries were unwarranted. For my height of 171cm this dress was just the right length to wear with heels - it fell just a few cm off the ground. I will cherish this dress. Definitely a worthy purchase!
