Exactly what I ordered
This is my prom dress, so I had high expectations for it and, having read the only other review, I was mildly nervous about it not fitting/being bad quality. It arrived this morning and I couldn't be happier, nor could my family and friends who I have showed it to. Despite being polyester, the fabric is thick, heavy and feels incredibly sturdy - my dog jumped up on me just after I put it on and I wasn't concerned that it would rip like I usually am. The underskirt is the perfect length, exactly as it is on the model, though the outer skirt is slightly longer than I predicted because I failed to think about the fact that the model is wearing heels (I'm 5'6', wear a size 6 and I will need to wear heels with it). Whilst the dress does nothing to make your chest look good, it does make it look a little flat as the other review suggested, but it's surprisingly supportive for a dress with so little upper-body coverage and wearing it without a bra shouldn't be a problem. Also, I found that the colour is the same dark red as the photo. Overall, it is exactly what I wanted and I actually feel like I got what I payed for!
Weird fit and fabric
On me, the waist was a tiny bit on the tight side, but the bust sags. The straps are adjustable but the dress looks really awkward with tightened straps, like your boobs are huge, flat, and really high up. You might not have this problem if you have large boobs or a long torso. My biggest problem was the fabric, at least in red - it doesn't have the kind of sheen/dimension that it does in the photos. It's lighter colored and much duller fabric in person - definitely not worth $300.
