"This dress is great for a strapless. I have a very large chest which sometimes makes it pretty difficult to keep a strapless dress in place, but there is a grip running along the top of the bust like you find in some strapless bras. There is some rouching in the bust area. Off, the folds look a little bit messed up, but once it's on and stretched, they look just fine. The fabric is very light with a textured detailing and the colors are beautiful. My actual piece has more variation in color than the online picture shows. It goes into a deep blue towards the bottom which I actually like more. Other reviewers mentioned the slit in the back: it is situated just below the bra line and DOES hang open as shown on the model in blue. Someone could just pull on it and look down to see your underwear. Hopefully this won't be a huge issue. I prefer that the slit sit flush with my back, which is why I had to rate this dress a 4/5. The shell applique is sewn pretty well, but it's pretty outshown by the rest of the dress in a good way. I'll also add in that my dress did in fact come with adjustable straps which have the exact same detailing as the bottom of the dress which is very pretty as well."
