I have this dress in navy, but I sincerely wish I had purchased it in a brighter color (red, jade, daffodil or royal blue). It was well-made, draped beautifully, had lining & a built-in bra. I received it in less than the estimated time frame, which was great because I needed to have the v-neck adjusted a bit before my event. Although the dress is pretty covered up, the plunging neckline gives it just enough sex appeal. Overall great dress!
