The dress itself is gorgeous. It's everything I hoped it to be. The appliqués are accented with pearlescent beads. The flowers are white satin ribbon, but the quality of these is so-so. A lot of the flowers have frayed ends from the ribbon not being trimmed well. There are endless stray threads that will need to be trimmed off the dress. The fabric, though, is thicker than expected and is good quality. The built in bra was a nice touch, but it was a bit large to be useful. I will have to wear a strapless bra with it (though I am a 42 DDD or E).
The length was "floor length" for me, and does not drag. I am 5'3". I am quite happy with the length, as it's what I wanted.
Overall: I would buy this dress again because I LOVE the style. Quality wasn't 100%, and it will need some minor adjustments, but it is gorgeous nonetheless!
Update: On my wedding day, I struggled to keep the dress up. I ended up doing an emergency job to tighten around the bust. Because of the sweetheart neckline, and the fact that it scoops lower on the back than the front, the bust fits a little awkwardly. Order slightly smaller than you think.
