This dress is extremely see-through under normal light in my bedroom as to be indecent if worn out in public. The problem would only be worse in the full glow of the noon day sun and cannot solved by simply wearing nude underwear! I dare say that even Hugh Hefner's bunnies wouldn't be caught in an outfit that exposed this much of the anatomy. The dress is completely unlined. It's a real shame because the dress would have looked great otherwise. The only use I can think of for this dress is a beach coverup, but even then it may be a little see-through.
