I bought this dress in orange a year ago and loved it so much, I bought another in purple this year. The dress is made of a light weight, breathable fabric which is perfect for hot, humid days. The ties in the back help you adjust the fit if you like a more shapely look or leave them untied for a flowy look. It washes well and doesn’t fade. A light touch up with a warm iron is all you need, or not! I’m thinking of buying one more while they are available. Love this dress!
