I'm not exaggerating in the slightest when I say that this dress is absolutely positivity gorgeous. It's made of a very light and VERY breathable material. Paper thin, but it's not see through! I'm 5'4, so naturally, everything is always way too long for me- especially maxi dresses/skirts. But after trying it on for the first time I realized that I could totally throw some wedges on and it will be the perfect length... and it WAS! I'm so happy with this purchase and cannot wait for my next purchase from this brand. I'm very hopeful!
