Bought this dress to wear to work and to an after work event. It's nicely lined which helps to smooth out the lines. The reasons why I didn't give it 5 stars are because of the darts/seams across the bust. I am a D cup and when I tried it on in the store, I did not notice the darts but when I got it home and tried it on in natural light, I noticed the darts pucker right in the bust area. Probably would not pucker as much on a smaller chested woman. My other comment is the hemline could be a touch longer. I'm 5'8, in my early 40s and would have appreciated another 1/2' or so. Again, may not be an issue for a young woman or not as tall. It is a nice dress, my husband loves it. Sizing is generous.
