Very well made/designed. Good, sturdy material, very elegant, hangs nicely. This laces up the back, so make sure you have someone to do the lacing for you. I bought the L/XL and even laced up to where the fabric meets still allowed me some wiggle room so I was extremely comfortable in this all day. I recommend replacing the lacing -- what comes with the gown is some yucky black, stretchy stuff that I replaced with a length of burgundy/gold twisted cord. Expect to hem the gown if you are under 5'7".
