"C'est la bonne robe."

In french when describing things, how do I differentiate between "that's a nice dress" and "that's the right dress" ?

someone correct me if i'm wrong but i think its because of the use of 'la' instead of 'une'. the direct translation is 'that's the nice dress', which is a stronger statement than simply saying it is a nice dress. it is the only dress that is nice, or the 'right' dress.

I had the same doubt

Doesn't the adjective go after the dress?

Most adjectives come after the noun. There are some, however, that come before the noun. These are adjectives that refer to beauty, age, goodness, and size. eg. jeune fille, gros chien. BAGS is an easy way to remember.
