Allover Beaded Lace Sheath Gown with Empire Waist. Style S8551
This is a beautiful gown- the pictures simply do not do it justice. I purchased this gown for my wedding coming up in April. It is to be a simple affair with just my fiance and I eloping at Niagara Falls. The lace and beadwork is very intricate - which the photograph does nothing to depict. It was fairly true to size and my dress doesn't require any alteration other than having the hem taken up - I am 5'3" (which surprised me because I am rather small-breasted and usually require alterations in that area as well). That being said - the fabric is very light and airy, but it will show every bulge and wrinkle... I am not heavy but I'm having to be very careful and work out extra hard to avoid having it look like I have a belly. I love my dress and it is one of those timeless pieces that I can envision my daughter one day wearing on her special day.

I absolutely fell in love with this dress. The picture really does not do it justice. Even when I saw it on the hanger I wasn't too impressed. When I tried it on I knew my search had ended. It falls beautifully and was by far the most comfortable dress I tried on. I got mine in the Ivory and it doesn't even look Ivory unless right next to a white dress. Also, the dress is pretty true to size. The only alterations I need are for the dress to be shortened. If you're looking for a simple, yet elegant look I say at least try this one on!

Love this dress
I tried on 30 dresses and was feeling overwhelmed. This was the last dress I tried and I just knew. It is so flattering the picture absolutely does not do it justice! The lace is so detailed and the subtle beading is so elegant! I can't wait to walk down the aisle in this dress!

Just as the other reviews have stated - not a dress I would've picked out myself. My consultant brought this one to me. Gorgeous dress - summer, mid-day wedding. Not too heavy but very elegant.
