You have to know a few things first I was set on having a lace gown for my second wedding so I purchased this dress. It's very comfortable on. Here's what you have to know: if you have any type of tummy, forget it. No spanx allowed due to low back. Second, no support on top so if you have a bigger bust, there is no support. I had the boning removed and placed in other areas, had the train removed and, like the other reviewer, had to have some lace moved farther down on the back, behind my arms, otherwise it cut in too much. I didn't wear the belt because I thought it really didn't fit with the vintage feel of the dress and it also would have accentuated my short torso. Should have probably purchased an empire-waist gown (because I have had two kids and have the tummy as proof!) but loved the lightweight feel and lace of this gown. Just make sure it feels and looks great on you. The cost of alterations was almost as much as the dress!!! (done other than David's) March 27, 2012
A Perfect Dress I absolutely LOVED this dress! It fit perfectly for me in a size 2 and the only alterations made were a hem and I had them remove the boning in the chest and sew in bra cups and slightly taken in at the waist.It was cool lightweight and very comfortable dress to move in all day. Our wedding day was October 1 2011 it was mid 80's and an outdoor wedding in Forth Worth, TX. And to any bride I would highly recommend a simple slipper. I cannot imagine having been on my feet all day in heels. Best decision I made! I enjoyed my guest so much in such a comfortable dress and slippers, rather than thinking about when I could get off my shoes and dress. March 9, 2012
My Dream Dress Love love love this dress! Can't wait for my husband-to-be to see me in it!! The beaded sash it comes with doesn't seem to go with the dress, and it is not my style, so I removed it and added a pale pink sash instead. Also, I added the fit and flare skirt to it, to give it even more curves! (the super skinny chic in the picture makes the dress look too blah.) The 4 petite is PERFECT for me, and I won't need to make any alterations to the dress. (Im 5'3, 34D, 120lbs.) It is light weight and I feel so free and natural in it. I love everything about this dress, and I can not wait to get married in it! March 4, 2012
Terrible Factory Photo, BEAUTIFUL Dress I must say that the factory photo of this dress does not do it justice AT ALL. If I had been browsing online I never ever would have given this dress a second look. I am getting married in October 2012 and I just went this past weekend to David's Bridal to look at dresses. I had planned on getting something short, but I liked the vintage look with the lace so I tried it on. It was the second dress I tried on and even though I tried on 4 or 5 more after it, I just kept going back to it. It's simply gorgeous when it's on you. The lace is not overwhelming and the tulle gives it a lovely soft, flowing feeling. I did not feel constricted or too tight in it like most of the other dresses I tried on. It really fit me, it fit my theme, and I bought it that day. The cap sleeves and the keyhole back really made it for me. It was such an interesting touch. However I will be removing the sash as I think it looks so much better without it. The dress I tried on in the store had had its sash removed and the idea of putting one on it seemed silly to me. I love love love this dress and I cannot wait to wear it on my wedding day. February 28, 2012
