Better than I expected
I was concerned about the weight of the fabric at this price point, but it's a good sturdy material with a slightly silky feel. The bodice is form-fitting but with an empire waist it favors those of us who have grown a tad stout in our later years. Very slimming, and the ruby is a very rich color. I'm going to order the teal next.
PERFECT FIT AND CLASSIC STYLING
Quality material, quality construction, flattering fit, and classic styling are sure to make this a go-to in my closet for years to come! It will also be versatile--I see the ability to dress it up or down depending on occasion. It does cover a multitude of sins, although if you have a bit of a "tummy", you might look pregnant due to the pleated under-bust, but if you don't (or can suck it in sufficiently) it's a must-have!
