Beautifully constructed. Slightly larger in the bust because of my pear shape. I felt so comfortable in the dress. It fit well without me ever feeling the need to tug or adjust. The illusion of the dark middle with the lighter top and bottom adds interest without trying too hard. I kept the accessories simple; small diamond and pearl earrings, a black statin bag with black statin sling back shoes. Next time I'll wear larger earrings. I will wear this dress many times.
