I reallllly wanted this dress to work. The color is beautiful and the design is great, but it is so disappointing. You can see-through the back MAJORLY. This is because it's not properly lined. It is basically two thin pieces of chiffon material covering your backside. If you happen to be blessed with little to no behind, or if yours is perfectly toned, perhaps you'll be okay. If not, it will expose every little flaw! A slip might work, but not if I'm paying this much for a dress. It should be fine as-is. Also, I'm a small-medium in everything including dresses. I have an hourglass figure. The medium just fit awkardly. The zipper is cheap quality, it would zip but it does this crinkly thing and looks like it's about to fall apart. Needless to say, it's going back. :(
