    Promising review: "I saw an Instagrammer that I follow wearing this dress and I searched high and low to find it. Finally, I did and I bought it and am happy with it for the most part. The material is of better quality than I was expecting and it’s not too long. The cups are slightly farther apart than I'm used to, but I feel secure in it despite not being able to wear a bra with it. Overall, it's a cute dress." —Joslin P.
