Alight plus size clothing

Alight is an online clothing store that has a number of selection for plus size clothing.  The website states that there are over 1000 unique items and over 75 brands.  They have dresses for casual and evening wear, shirts, blouses, tops, jeans, denim, cardigan, boleros, shrugs, knit tops, pants, leggings, jackets, skirts, capri, active wear, accessories, jewellery, sweaters, outerwear and shorts.  They have plus size dresses for special events such as for weddings, formal, bridesmaid, prom dresses etc.  There are lots of brands to choose from, if you prefer to shop by brand.  We can shop by boutiques such as maxi dresses, clothing with dots and stripes, kimono style tops etc.  Alight also has an option to choose clothing by sizes.  

I am not sure if all of the advertised products are available online.  I received this sundress to review.  I wasn't too happy with it because it was sleeveless, as I prefer tops with sleeves. Many of us when we buy online, trust that the company will give attention to detail and give us the best product so it would be nicer if Alight pays more attention to detail on their clothing.  The tassels in this dress make it stand out, however there was one ball from the tassel missing on a noticeable area, which was disappointing because we can't replace it ourselves.  As the size was big for me I wanted to give it to a friend so they could enjoy it this summer; I felt a little unsure to give it as a gift because the quality wasn't as good.
Update: I gave it to my friend and she is really enjoying it. She has received many good compliments.

I liked that there was lining on this dress especially because without the lining it would have been transparent.  I like the style and the colour of the dress.  The dress is below the knee.  It would be ideal if Alight has an image of all how each product looks in different angles importantly the back part of the clothing Check their online description of each product before purchasing it online as it is different for each one i.e. the material used, length, where it is made, length, cleaning tips and return policy.  Alight ships international and right now they have a sale with 80% off of their original prices.  Alight also has a store in New York.
