I love this dress! BUT, it says it's machine washable and dryable. It's 100% Rayon and WILL shrink about a 1/2 a size and shorten up! I put it in the dryer on low and it shrank a good inch and a half from the bottom and a 1/2 inch around my bust (Which was ok on the bust since it was a tad loose). But I would recommend hang drying it for sure! I got a lot of compliments on it when I wore it and it's very comfy with the slits up each leg!
