There is something awful about the fit. It is not structured at all. The description should simply be "Balloon Waist Clip Dot Dress". It's a beautiful fabric, the top layer is gauzy and light, but the "lining" is actually a separate polyester sheathe dress that is just attached with two tiny strings at the shoulders making it a pain to put on. That might be nice if you plan to wear just the sheathe by taking it out of the dress, but it's a bit too slinky and unshaped for my tastes. Once you figure out how to put it on, the dress just hangs. The empire "waist" is loose and bags under the arms making you look gigantic. Even a belt couldn't fix it due to the bulk at the waistline. The entire silhouette is boxy, like wearing a potato sack. I hate to say it because i LOVED the colour and fabric, but I just looked like big bird. Absolute nope unless you're planning to take it to a seamstress.
