washed black is partially lined
i love this dress! i own it in lavender/gray and it was my favorite dress to wear last summer. when i saw the washed black get released i went for it immediately! i wanted to write this review because the description does not mention the lining in the black version. the black fabric is not as soft as the lavender/gray and the dress is lined to the upper thigh where the lavender/gray is not really lined (only a double layer of fabric at the very top piece of the dress by the breast.) i washed it hoping that the stiffness of the black fabric would wash out some, but it is still kind of stiff. the stiffness and the light cotton lining in the black version make the dress kinda poofy, where the lavender/gray is more flowy and soft, and lays flatter without poofing out where the dress gathers at the bust. the fabric is admittedly somewhat see through, although i can't really tell if it's any more sheer than the other color which i never noticed an issue with. both are a very light cotton. so i don't blame natural life for making the call on the lining. i'm sure many won't notice or mind this but i tend to not buy lined dresses or i end up emergency cutting the lining out in the bathroom at work because it's driving me crazy. haha. you might be happy with it exactly as it is, but i foresee an emergency bathroom cutting in this dress' future. :/ i'm hoping it still becomes this years favorite dress for me. the lavender/gray version gets a full 5 stars.

I got this for my mom for her birthday vacation to Hawaii she is going to loveeee it
Super cute dress. Quite billowy and reaches to the floor on me. Loved it so much I bought the pink one, too.
It’s lovely! Comfy and pretty :)I am tall and always worried about length and this fits falls around my ankles.
Amazing Maxi Dress
This dress is exactly what I wanted. The material is beautiful and the length is perfect. I've already worn it so much, definitely worth the purchase!!!
