I actually bought this dress in a surf shop and it looks nothing like the picture! It is much much cuter in person. The fabric is great! The top stays in place because it is mostly cotton with a hint of spandex to keep it tight and in place, The bottom, floral pattern is also nice because it is two layers. A kind of sheer floral material over top of solid black lining. This dress washes nicely but I wouldn't put it in the dryer, just hang dry. So far the colors have not faded at all.
