Allover Beaded Lace Sheath Gown with Empire Waist. Style S8551
I had been to 3 other bridal stores before I headed to DB and I just knew I would end up finding my dress here. We're getting married December 2011 in a fun/party wedding and I didn't want something frufy or frilly. I had always imagined myself in a vintage style lace and this dress was perfect. I knew when I took it out of the bag that it was the one. I'll be pairing it with a flower headpiece and Betty Page/Pinup heals.
I love that it shows off my curves and I feel absolutely beautiful in it. The online photos do not do it justice at all! The only alteration will be to transform the neckline to a sweetheart.
Give this dress a try! It is perfect for anyone looking to show off some curves and channel their inner 1920's siren!

I am by no means a foo-foo girl...and this dress was PERFECT! It's beautiful without being over-the-top and perfect for my small, spring wedding.

works for me
I knew I wanted a lace dress and there were two in the store I had to try on. The only reason I did buy this dress instead of the other one was the price. This dress is wonderful for the price but if I could do it over again or even return it I would have bought the t9612 dress.
The one big problem with this dress is the top makes buldges over the top of the dress and it shows every little detail and if the underlay isn't perfectly flat then it looks bad.

I never felt like a bride until...
I never envisioned my wedding dress resembling a princess-taffeta-gown. I wanted something simple, classic, and flattering. This dress is beautiful, simple, flattering, and made me feel like a bride.
I was initially intimidated by a strapless dress because I didn't want to be tugging on my gown all day, but it held up just fine. The sizing was very approximate, as well. With the two-tier pearl accented veil, it is the perfect combination. The gown is light, doesn't have a cumbersome train, and is tremendously flattering on my hour glass figure (although the fantastic corset they give you to try on gowns certainly helps!). I didn't need any alterations; one can even get away without getting a bustle added because the train isn't too long. Also, it is EXTREMELY reasonably priced considering its detail! I love this dress and I cannot wait for it to arrive.
