Gorgeous neckline, disappointing fabric
I thought this dress would be perfect for my upcoming island honeymoon and purchased it in white. While I simply adore the neckline (really, really gorgeous - and very flattering), the fabric was a disappointment. It is unlined, with the exception of the lining at the bust (which mitigates against the need to wear a bra). The fabric elsewhere is so sheer that you would literally notice if you'd missed your bikini wax for any more than a couple of days! Also, unlike some of the other Susana Monaco jersey dresses I own, there is not much ruching at the back of the dress, which means it would be impossible to wear underwear and not have it show through (even nude - I tried!) This would be a great summer dress for a 12 year old girl with nothing to hide, but for me, it's simply not hard working enough. For the price, I'd recommend James Perse. Less use of synthetic fabrics for one, and really thick, quality double lining. Sadly, I am returning this dress.
