no muss, no fuss
I had this dress on my favorites list and knew I had to try it on during my consultation. I LOVE this dress! I wasn't planning on getting a strapless dress as I am small chested but it fits like a glove and I love how it is form fitting without making my hips look too large and flows nicely at the bottom. I added a plum sash to accentuate my waist. I am 5'4" 125 lbs and got a size 2. Even with 4 in heels, it is a little long in the front, but not so much that I need any alterations. Perfect dress at a great price!

what a lovely dress!
I had gone into Davids Bridal to look at several gowns I had found on their website. This gown never even made the list because the website does it no justice. Lucky for me my consultant pulled it anyways! I tried on a dozen gowns that day, but this was the one. It has just enough sparkle and it fit perfectly though I had to go two sizes up. I assumed I'd have to go one size up being as wedding dresses usually run small which held true for ever other gown I tried on that day, except for this one. Regardless of the odd sizing it really is going to make for a perfect gown, we're having a winter wedding 1/11/14 so to bring it more into season I've paired it with a white velvet sash/belt with a beaded crystal snowflake-esque applique in the center, and a white velvet bolero with pearl and crystal accents to tie it in nicely in with the gown's detail (both of these pieces I had custom sewn for me by a seamstress.) Oh and some red satin heels just for a little bit of holiday sass! The versatility of this gown is absolutely amazing!

Sequin & Lace Perfection
I purchased this gown on-line for my beach wedding in Hawaii, which is two weeks away. After reading all the reviews, I knew what to expect -- that the gown would be beautiful and better than it looks on the model in the photo. And I was definitely not disappointed -- the gown is AMAZING!!! Just gorgeous. As some others said, the ivory is not really what you'd think of as "ivory". It's more an off-white, which to me is perfect. I had read all the reviews before purchasing, and I only wish more reviewers would talk about how the dress fit them. I'm 5'7" and weigh about 123. I typically wear a size 4 street dress. But from what I'd read and heard about the fit of WEDDING dresses, you should order a size larger than what you wear in a street dress - and so I ordered a size 6. Well, it was definitely too large all over. So I ordered a size 4 and it fit perfectly. I did take my own measurements, and ordered according to the size chart on David's bridal website, but found that the measurements seem a bit "off" for this dress. Especially in the bust region! The size 6 should have fit me perfectly in the bust (according to the sizing chart on the website) but was huge. Anyway, just a word to those wondering about sizing. I recommend ordering the same size of this particular wedding dress as what you normally wear in a street dress. Again, this dress is perfect for my beach wedding, and it fits wonderfully! Very sparkly (but not overdone). I didn't want to take it off -- it's PERFECT!!!
