Almost perfect little dress
I bought this in medium in the cream, which, as others have noted, is more of a buttercream than a white, but I like that. I'm 5'7'' and an hourglass 140lbs - 145lbs, and the dress fits really well. The ruching flatters, the dress skims over curves with the right amount of tension and the fabric is very silky and soft. My only tweaks will be to the length: the under-layer is just about right, but the over-layer is several inches longer, falling to just above my knee. I'm not crazy about that, I'd rather have the dress hit 2/3 down my thigh. Also, the over-layer trumpets out a little at the bottom, creating a mermaid look that I don't like. I tried tucking it under, but to have the dress be perfect I'll take it to a seamstress and get the top layer taken up to match the bottom layer. Lastly, the dress doesn't show underwear lines, but it's sheer enough to show a hint of shadow in the back if you're wearing a thong, so I'll probably invest in a short nude slip.
