LONG BEACH, CA
this dress fits well,the fabric is soft, it is not overly full at the bottom as many maxis are. I simply cut the hem to the length i wanted, as it is a raw hem to begin with, and it looks great! a very sleek dress, VERY comfortable. only downside is the braided trim and straps. They are blue-black color, not quite as black as the dress fabric.. this difference is not noticeable under subdued lighting in the evening. still, color consistency would have been better. overall i am happy with my purchase. i already own 2 dresses of this style, the other two are prints. they are fabulous as well, and no issues with the color of the straps.
