This dress is beautiful. The workmanship is lovely and the quality is excellent. I ordered this dress in the color gold for my teenage daughter to wear to her Cotillion formal. The fit was perfect. I ordered a size 4. The back of the dress is as pretty as the front! The crossed straps was a little difficult getting past some of the bulkier parts of the dress. I found that the more times we zipped, the smoother it became. I have already ordered before and I am waiting on 2 different dresses to arrive. I can definitely recommend veaul!
