I purchased this product a week ago, and I love everything about it! I am rather short and thin, therefore most of my costumes or clothing must be either custom created or altered. This dress fits perfectly.
I purchased this dress costume for the talent portion of a pageant.
Additionally, to get a feel for the dress in relation to my dance I have worn the dress for at least one dance rehearsal before my next Miss Indiana preliminary and it has held up against jumps, floor landings, and the demanding life of a dance costume. It is perfect, I highly recommend it!
The shipment of this dress came in pretty fast - about 2 days which was great. The dress is super cute itself and my choreographer friend agreed. The only thing is that I'm 4'10 and wished the hemline of the feathers hit higher on my thighs. It looks great on the model because she's tall. However all the feather plumage on my petite frame tended to swallow my legs and look a little over powering. It created a "bell" like shape around my hips in an unflattering way.
I picked the medium size and chose correctly, but I just didn't like the way it fit and looked on me overall. I was going to use this do perform a ballroom Cha Cha/Rumba routine. Just a tip - because it's backless, you need to make sure you tone/work out your back, abs and sides for this dress. I'm not obese or thin as a rail but it will show any slight "rolls" or muffin tops you might have. It's unfortunate this dress didn't work out, especially because it's such a unique and sexy outfit!
