I am THRILLED with this purchase. My dress will be used a bridesmaid dress. The color is vibrant and beautiful. The velvet seems thick and durable, and it even had a slip underneath. The dress has cups sewn in, so I won’t need to worry so much about a bra. The fit is phenomenal, it fits so much better than I was anticipating. I can’t wait to wear this at the wedding. I feel so beautiful in it and I’m sure I will cherish this dress for long after the wedding.
