If you are an average guy and you buy this dress for your lady; consider yourself warned, man. She will look so much better than you that people will not think that the two of you are together! First off, I am already dating out of my league but when my lady wears this dress, the sight of her brings tears to mine eyes...and apparently to everyone's eyes as well. We receive many many compliments from both male and female. Also, the dress looks and feels a lot more expensive than what it is. Photographs very well, too. In general, seems as though the lighter coloured dresses photograph better on lighter coloured skin and vice versa. Guys, wear complimentary colours. The dress is elegant and casual at the same time. We were on the boat, golf cart, the outdoor mall, going out; everything. It fit right in. She also had a shaw just in case the weather became chilly. Not for motorcycle riding, though. As with most dresses, it will get caught in the tyre and be transformed into a micro-mini with fringe. thanks tbdress.com for being my best dress partner.
