This is handmade and whoever hand made it was a master designer...or at least super creative and strategic.
Why? Well first off, because the bobbin lace trim shows appropriate skin...not inappropriate skin.
Don't believe me? Zoom in on the picture with me wearing the dress...front and back. What color underwear am I wearing? Ha! You can't tell, can you?
That's because I'm not wearing any. Just kidding, just kidding, just kidding.
I'm totally wearing underwear. No, you can't tell because the lace shows my lower rib area and my upper thigh area. Strategic lace placement. It's an art.
Secondly, because, while yes, there are see-through areas, it's an A-line dress.
A-line means nothing is hugging the curves. This is important for the same reason that you pair a bold eye with a nude lip or a nude eye with a bold lip but never a bold eye and a bold lip.
One or the other but not both.
See-through bobbin lace (no matter how chaste and pretty) AND form fitting is a "look" for sure and I'm not putting it down, I'm just saying it's not a balanced look.
Well, you've got the cute flower neckline and hemline but the dress is a mini skirt=Nude eye, bold lip.
V neckline, paired with angel sleeves= Bold eye, nude lip.
Yeah, it's perfectly, strategically, balanced and eye-catching.
P. S. I swear, I really was wearing clean underwear.
