substantial quality lightweight gown. Was looking for my MOB dress and loved that the color was on the side of brown but in person more of a black-brown. I have two Halston gowns and keeping both, they are kind to my body type(60 yr old, 5’9, muffin topish) normally wear a 16-18 comfortably the 16 fit with a little extra room. So after trying on over fifty something dresses, this one and another Halston i will keep. love! Search is over, relieved..
