The dress was a perfect fit and according to everyone-adorable. I was complimented for once again pulling off a short prom dress rather than having a long skirt. The bow was a little crooked but that didn't bother me. I was pleasantly surprised when I found out it was removable. It's disappearance gave the dress a completely different look which was just as elegant. Gorgeous dress and the fact that it can be tightened around the chest area by how tight the back strings are pulled was a definite plus.
