Everything about this dress works. The fabric is amazing: stretchy, soft and gorgeous. The dress is super flattering even on my 5'2" curves. It's perfect for stage, markets and haflas on its own or with harem pants or a skirt underneath. It'd be equally awesome for a night on the town. I'm in love!

The silhouette of the Beledi is ultra hotness. I'm a lady who enjoys showing off my shoulders as well as favoring elbow-length sleeves, and the Beledi neckline is deeeeelish. Love layering it over the maxi skirt for a longer look as well. It's not sheer at all as I'm happy to go topless underneath too thanks to its supersoftness. Please keep this design a MeloStandard! Dreaming of future color and fauxssuit opportunities... <3

Stunning Dress!, 11.24.2016

This Beledi dress is absolutely stunning. Yes, you can wear it for performance, but it is equally at home for a dressy evening out, and would be perfect for a holiday party as well. The beautiful faux-assuit (fauxssuit?) fabric is not see-through, so you don't need anything special to wear under it (with the exception of a strapless bra). As with all clothing designed by Melodia, you FEEL beautiful in this dress, as well as look it.
