We shall see I recently bought this dress for my September wedding. It was the first dress I tried on and my last. It was the only one I tried on in store and I knew it was the dress. My consultant was wonderful and very helpful. The dress was so comfortable and not heavy. I am 5' 3" and 113 pounds. I bought a size 2 and i had minimal alterations done. She put cups in since you can not wear a bra with the key whole back and she did a bustle for me, so my dress wouldnt drag during my dinner. I am so excited to wear my dress. The only thing i noticed was on the sleeve. The lace was cut in an awkward spot which make it not look exactly similar to the other sleeve. But i feel that gives my dress character, and makes it unique! I will let you know how i feel in it after i wear it but so far i am in love with my dream dress!! Perfectly elegant! April 25, 2011
Loved it in the end... They only had this dress in a size 6 when I tried it on - but I still really loved it and couldn't imagine myself in any other dress. I ordered a size 0 and was a bit afraid that it would be too small but on arrival it was HUGE. I'm 5'6 and about 110-115lbs so I was a bit shocked when the smallest size didn't fit! The dress needed to be taken in about 2inches on the sides and a couple of inches in off the back too. I did alter the back of the dress a bit - widening the top to make the sleeves fit more over my shoulders which added to the cost but I was very surprised by how much I had to spend to get the dress 'just right'. In the end it turned out well and people thought the dress was beautiful but it wasn't as economical as I thought it would be. Nowhere near the cost of a designer dress but just wanted to mention it as I've seen other reviews complain of high alteration costs to this dress. If you are on the smaller side be prepared to spend a bit to make this dress fit. Still a great dress and it was perfect for my wedding setting but would have liked to have known the fitting issues beforehand! April 14, 2011
Dream Dress Walking in to David���s Bridal I came with no pictures only concepts of what I knew I liked. I wanted a dress with cap sleeves that was form fitted but still had flow. My consultant sat me down with a magazine and told me to flip through it and mark any dresses I wanted to try on. She left me to my task while she went in search of dresses that fit my requirements. Time passed and I showed her pictures of dresses I thought might be nice. Eventually I found a picture of this dress in the magazine and excitedly looked for my consultant. I showed her the picture and she smiled. She told me that though I have shown her many dresses that I would like to try on she had only put one in my fitting room and that was it. This is the only wedding dress I have ever tried on but it was the one. I bought this dress and loved it even more after alterations. The dress looked great in pictures and was exceptionally comfortable to wear. My seamstress was impressed with the quality of the dress and couldn���t believe the price I paid for it. I know, if given the option, I would choose this dress all over again. April 8, 2011
Smooth elegance This is wonderful dress- I used it for my wedding last June and it was a dream. The design is so elegant ,classy and feminine yet modern and sexy with the open back. I loved that it is not a heavy dress and I was able to dance all night. The only adjustments I made was to saw in some cups to support the chest (since you can't wear a bra because of the open back). Overall this is a very comfortable and beautiful dress. April 7, 2011
