The dress is beautiful. I loved it when it arrived. It's true to the pictures. Me being athletic when I put the dress on it fit perfectly until it got to my arms. I wasn't able to put it on. I thought I could take it to get altered but the sleeves being a mesh material they couldn't be altered and had to be cut off. If you're more on the muscular athletic side as far as body shape this dress isn't for you. It's a beautiful dress though.
