The white dress looks absolutely stunning under stage lighting, but it is not lined whatsoever. I wore a fully front lined nude leotard underneath for modesty's sake, but I also suggest wearing pasty petals or sewing in bra cups. I found it a bit tight in the arm and leg holes (I am 5'3" and 115 lbs). Additionally, the fabric of the skirt is single-layered and not hemmed, which makes me wonder how long the dress will last. Still, one cannot deny the beauty of the drape and the elegance of the neck line. I wore this in a dance full of spins and fan kicks, and the result was breathtaking.
I purchased this dress in light blue for a liturgical dance piece at church. It flows beautifully. I also purchased the white chiffon scarf also on this site. We tacked that at the front of the neckline and at the shoulder tops, letting the remainder trail down the back. The length matched perfectly with the length of the dress! I did order a large. I wear a 4 in street clothes, maybe a medium would have worked, but this is fine. I'm well endowed on top. I was a little worried about the high waist style as often on me, that seam ends up right across my bust. It is still higher than it should be, but it looks fine. The fabric has some weight, but not enough to be annoying. Amazingly it has no hem, yet it does not roll. The length is perfect. It is low in the back so a normal bra will not work. I wear a nude bodysuit under it, bra built in. I'm not crazy about the built in leotard as that eliminates the ability to use the bathroom easily. I still may cut it and add hooks. All in all great product, performs well, and very flattering.

I need to order this dress for 9 girls total. ( 6 teenagers and 3 ten year olds). For my ten year olds, I am concerned that the dress will be too large. Could this dress be used for the 10 year old age group? If not what would be the closest to this dress for the 10 year olds? Also I need these dresses in within a week. Will you all be able to fulfill this order in a short period of time?
We cannot guarantee sizing as we do not know the sizes of the dancers. It runs as small as a petite.
