I am 29 yrs old, typical dress size size 8, 6'0 feet 154 lbs. I bought this for my bridal shower! Shorter than I normally wear but still appropriate. Great for curves in the waist since it poofs out. The fabric is very thick and luxurious. The two materials really pop as contrast in person. I can't say enough positive things about this dress. I can't wait to wear it!
