This beautiful little nightgown is exactly as pictured and softer than it looks! Sometimes with such detailed patterns the material itself is a bit rough but this is made with a super soft cotton so it's very lightweight and soft. I love the material and the fit, the length is just right as well. It's extremely breathable and comfortable, not flashy and you can wear it around the house. I ordered a 2X which is my normal size and it's very roomy! The pattern is absolutely gorgeous and is very vibrant. It's SUPPOSED to be a night gown..... but this dress is so beautiful I would absolutely wear it out and about during the summer! Match it with your favorite pair of wedges and you've got yourself a lovely little summer outfit! Although it is light, it's not see-through which really helps if you want to wear this out during the day. I even loved the little bag it comes in, it was great packaging!
