Rated 3 out of 5 by RedFalc Dress not as pictured - beading is fragile
I'm a little big around the middle, and was looking for a dress to drape that area... this dress "looks" like it would - but it doesn't - it's pretty much a column dress, be aware of that when you buy it.
Also - right out of the bag - the collar started shedding beading. It is sewn on - but some of the beads seemed to be just clamped in.
Finally - what's not on the picture are the draped wings out the back. They're attractive, and can nicely hide an ample exterior - but it didn't make up for the front tight coverage.
I did return it as I didn't like the fit for my body shape, while I could have personally fixed the beading - I shouldn't have had to do so, my expectation is that it should last at least through my first use - this didn't even make it out of the bag.
