I have worn this dress to two weddings over the summer and received so many compliments on it! The light catches the crystals just right and you will sparkle all evening long. The dress is long though, so this is for the taller ladies. I wore 3 inch heels and it barely skimmed the floor for me (I'm 5'8"). The top fits a size ten just right, but hips can be bigger as the skirt is very loose and flows out. The skirt has a satin layer underneath with a matching chiffon layer over. Top has a see through chiffon layer where the crystals are attached.
I would highly suggest this dress for any black tie or formal gala that you need to attend.
