I also love that the dress has a built in bra and padding, so I did not need a strapless bra (I am a 34 C). I did experience a small tear in the side seam of the dress after wearing it for about 4 hours, but that is an easy fix.
I purchased this dress in ruby (red) for a cocktail/engagement party and received TONS of compliments. I am passing it down to my 14-year old daughter for a prom dress as well.
Great quality, beautiful dress.
