I love the color of this dress. The red and pink combination is vibrant and cheerful. The top is large and billowy, and because of the dolman cut, can be quite airy at the arms. The skirt portion fits very snug. Normal underwear will NOT cut it. So if you hate strings, then you'll have to endure VPL. It is also quite short, even on my 1.6m frame, so conservatives may want to team this with tights or leggings. I expected a lot from this dress, but it just didn't fit the way I wanted it to. The material was nothing to shout about either. Nonetheless, it was a good price and I like it enough not to return it.
