Amazing quality dress for the price. I love that this looks like two pieces but is actually one dress, it lays very nicely on the body and is extremely flattering on my petite but curvy frame. The front of the top is open just like the back, but when you pull the straps tight enough there is no gapping. I wore a cream bandeau and while it showed through the open back, this did not take away from the overall look and design. The skirt is definitely more structured with a hint of stretch while the top is lightweight, airy and comfortable. I bought what converts to a US 6, Aussie size two. It is a mini dress, so may be a bit short on super tall ladies. Being about 5'2, this was no issue for me. Love the subtle details like the gold zipper and hardware on the straps of the top- WHITE HOT!
