This is a very pretty dress. However, I will need to take it to someone who can do alterations: the back fabric is equal to the amount of front fabric. I am not a cylinder: I need darts and accommodation of genuine womanly curves, while my back is much smaller. I would recommend this for taller people. I am a bit too short for it, as much as I love the wow factor. I may need inserts into the neckline.
