Allover Beaded Lace Sheath Gown with Empire Waist. Style S8551
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!!!

LOVE THIS DRESS!!!!
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this dress. It's super comfortable and easy to move around in. It is so sexy yet elegant and is very flattering to a curvy figure....all things that the product picture just don't show. Can't wait to wear it on my wedding day!!!

I had already purchased a Casablanca Bridal gown for $1500 but it just never felt right, I went to Davids Bridal with a friend who is getting married and decided to try on dresses with no intention to buy, however after trying on five dresses this was the last one hanging on the rack! it fit perfect! I got a tone of ooohhs and ahhhs from our group and it was so figure hugging and slimming. I just knew it was the dress I was meant to wear! so I brought it.....I added lupis shoes with diamond accents, and a lupis belt too with a diamond brooch and it really made the dress even more stunning. Cant wait to wear it for my 09-14-2013 wedding. The picture on the website simply does nothing for this dress, I saw it, but didnt even add to my favorites. So glad my consultant pulled it for me to try!

Very classy, elegant & sexy. Just cant wait for my big day to show it off :)
The bead work over the soft lace gives just the right amount of glitter.
I'm 5'2" and broad, never thought a gown could give so much shape & height but this one just did. I'm making it a fit & flare.
This one is good for all shapes and sizes.
