This dress has been one of my favorite purchases to date. I originally bought this for a summer weddings (indoors) but after wearing it I can see myself getting a lot of use out of the dress.
I really fell in love with this material because it is sturdy however it is not to thick. My body retains a lot of heat and it is a bit easier for me to sweat though I feel like I was not sweating any more or less because of the fabric. I would probably point more of a finger at the fact that I was dancing my butt off. It has enough stretch where you can move freely but the structure of the dress is not compromised. It has no lining so it convenient for the dress not to warrant the addition of a slip. The picture is EXTREMELY true to color. The dress is a very vibrant, warmer-toned red.
I am typically a SIZE 22 so I ordered my normal size (prefer 24 only if the fabric is non-stretch/woven) and the dress fit me perfectly. I am about the same width through the waist and hips but the dress did not feel tight or constricting. Additionally I have a smaller butt and carry a little bit more weight in my midsection. I would advise that if you have a curvier shape than I do, be careful with this dress. The material is not super form fitting so I would possibly size up to accommodate. I am also 5'7' but the model is 5'10'. The dress fell more below the knee for me than it did on the model (expected) so I love pairing it with a strappy heel. I am a C cup and I felt that the dress fit me perfectly in the bust. If you have a larger bust, the dress may feel tight in this area.
The only qualm with the dress is with the straps. I had to adjust the dress quite a few times to keeps the straps laying flat but it really wasn't a problem since I was moving around a lot. I Hope this helps!
