I bought this dress to wear to my rehearsal dinner and ended up wearing it to my bridal shower as well because I love it so much. As the other reviewers mentioned, the slip is indeed cotton but I found it to be soft and to hang really nicely as long as you adjust the straps to the proper length. I also liked that the cotton kept everything cool. The dress itself is made beautifully. The detailing and crocheting is lovely and of great quality. The dress falls and flows very naturally and I received many complements when I wore it. I think that it could also be dressed down with a brown leather belt and flats.

The dress is perfect and fit as intended. I ordered a new ivory slip which was tea length from
freepeople.com. It works perfect.

I have a thin figure and am not very tall; this dress was way too long (down to my ankles), the slip was sheer and I look frumpy with no shape at all. The bottom part of the dress has no shape but sticks out and is very wide for smaller figures. The material felt very cheap too. Although the picture on the website is beautiful, the dress does not hang well in reality. I was incredibly disappointed by the dress. I will be returning it, as the price does not match the quality of the product. I would have to have some major alterations to get it to look close to what it does in the photo on the website.

Beautiful but too sheer
There is a lot to love about this dress. It was just what I was looking for. I read the reviews about the slip being too sheer but decided to order it any way. The lace overlay is stunning, but other reviewers are right to say that not only is the slip sheer (you can see leg silhouettes right up to your crotch) but it's bulky and doesn't let the lace part hang properly. Mine keep getting twisted to one side so the lace patten was off-centered and looked odd. Reluctant to give up on it, I spent several hours looking for an alternative slip to wear under it--but to no avail. It seems opaque white slips that hit below the knee do not exist. And so I will return it. And forfeit the $75 I paid for customs fees. Disappointing. A better fitting, more opaque slip would solve this issue.
