Super comfy...slightly see-through
This dress fits so well, the bodysuit is comfy, the skirt is beautifully flowy, the open back is awesome. The only downside is the skirt is a bit see-through so I’m not sure it will be appropriate for a bridal shower like I had hoped. I ordered the mellow yellow color.

The bodice
The fabric used for the top part of this dress does not help with the fit. It doesn’t adjust well to my body movement. I wish it had more flexibility and a softer feel so that it was more comfortable like how a body suit fits. The skirt to the dress is beautiful.

So feminine!
I love this so much! It’s beautiful and feminine and brings out your inner adult ballerina. I’m so in love!! Dress it up or dress it down with a cute top over it and tied in the middle. So happy! I bought it in three colors. Literally obsessed!

Yellow - transparent thong back but still cute
I’m 5’9” 140lbs and I ordered a medium and this fit lengthwise but not width, it was too loose. I took it and had it taken in so now it fits wonderfully. I would buy in black but since you can see my cheeks at the back, I won’t. Otherwise it is beautiful.

Beautiful dress
Fits amazing except in the top area where it feels a bit big and as if it could stretch out a bit. Super comfortable and such a cute flattering dress. I now have it in two colors!

Good for people who like thongs
This is good. I like how when I swirl, the dress floats. It's better to not wear a bra for this dress. Slightly tighter than I thought.

The colour is everything!
Bought it in Tuscan Sun and it truly gorgeous!! The skirt is a bit more see-through than I’d hoped (you can see where the bodysuit ends, even though there’s a slip under the skirt) but it’s really not that bad. The plunging v-neck and low back are also really great.

Daphnee Dress Black
I ordered the Daphnee Dress in size Large, colour Black. I recommend trying on in store first, as the price is quite expensive for what the quality is. I felt that the dress fit nice and was versatile enough to make it worth purchasing.

The black top part could be darker black as it's a bit off colour. This dress is a thong bodysuit style with skirt sewn on, with extra above knee lining under the skirt. This skirt would be a great dress to pack if going travelling.
