This is the best casual dress in the world, period. I currently own three of them in slightly different lengths and plan on ordering a full length one too. Lol. It's very flattering, loose without being baggy. The fabric is nice and thick so you don't really need a slip underneath, and it's also easy to care for! All of my dresses from Crystal still look impeccable after being through many wash cycles.

This is my second purchase from Crystal -- I'm very happy with both of them! The material is on the thicker side and isn't even asking for a slip like so many thinner fabrics do these days, yay! Looking at the pics I was expecting this dress to be a bit looser but I'm actually super happy how it came out -- it's more fitted than I expected and therefore very flattering and not baggy at all, and it was so kind of Crystal to customize a couple of things to my liking. If A-line dresses look good on you -- definitely get this one, it's such a wonderful addition to your casual wardrobe as it can be used for so many different occasions!
