The costume is nice, the silver material is really pretty, but it seems like it will catch on everything. The sleeves are a very tight. (I'm a size 10). The biggest issue is the white material. It's completely see-through! Be sure to wear a slip or something underneath. The lace is very heavy and not too intricate.

I like this dress okay, except for the neckline, which is not as pictured. The neckline has a flimsier, more delicate, and cheaper-looking lace than the kind pictured, and it sticks up/out rather than laying flat as pictured. I thought it looked odd. The dress also didn't lay well over my shoulders. Also, I have very thin arms, but the upper arms/shoulders of this dress fit me pretty snugly, so I don't know how a person with more average-sized arms could comfortably wear this. I did like the layered fabric on the sleeves and the front of the dress, which made the costume look nicer. I usually wear a size 2 (B 33", W 26", H 35.5") and the dress was very loose fitting except for the shoulders, and I would have preferred it to be a little smaller overall, but it wasn't so large that it wouldn't work. As others have said, the materials are very sheer so you'd have to wear a slip underneath. I'm about 5' 7.5" tall, and the dress hit around my ankles. Overall I thought this dress was a decent costume, and if the lace at the neckline had been like the lace that is pictured then I probably would have kept it, but the actual neckline wasn't working for me so I'm returning it.
