Delightfully wearable shape, with no obtrusive flaws. Any small faults do not retract from wearability and will be fully-disclosed. Noted alteration: wrap bodice is tacked closed -- this is easily removed for deeper cleavage.

Noted repair: several tiny pinholes have been repaired in the net lining.
