Very overpriced, disappointing
The style idea as it appears in the picture here is nice; the execution is poor. The fabric is thin, and it looks and feels cheap. Unless wearing as a beach cover-up, you will need a slip. On the one I received (outrageously crumpled) the chevron design is poorly aligned at the centre seam, and the fabric is unsymmetrically cut and sewn along where the stripe meets the ivory at the top, leaving a thin and uneven strip of lighter brown on one side only, which is very poor attention to detail in such an expensive dress. The overall effect is quite tacky. As the previous reviewer pointed out, it is a yellower shade of white than the picture shows. It is true to size. Unfortunately the cost of this item is completely unjustified.
Hi MGiovanna, We're sorry to hear about the quality of the dress. We'll be in touch.
I was really excited about this piece when I saw it. I love the detail at the top, along the front and back. And it's so beautiful in the photo. BUT, the colors of the dress aren't as they're pictured here. Instead of white, the dress is more of an off-white, beige-ey in color. It's much more dull than the vibrant white you see in the photo. It's also VERY SHEER. Basically see-though, and I didn't purchase it so I could wear a slip under it. I ordered a small, which is my go-to, and I did find it was a little looser than I would prefer, but I wonder if the x-small would be too short--I'm 5'9. Overall, I was pretty disappointed.
