Perfect. Model doesn't do it justice! I have tried on over 100 dresses, and I'm not kidding. I went to DB not really expecting to find what I was looking for. I wanted a beachy dress that I still felt like a bride in. At first when I showed my mom what dress the consultant was bringing so gave me a disgusting look. When I came out of the dressing room she started crying and so did I. I instantly fell in love with this dress and I finally found out what people meant when they said they just knew it was "The One"! July 7, 2009
short waisted Apparently I am "short waitsted" which I think is just code for "love handles" When I tried this dress on I absolutely LOVED the front... but in the back it bunched a little bit looking like the dress is just a little too tight. My DB consultant advised me that if I lost a few pounds (which I was already planning to do of course) it was my wedding after all and I had put on a few at the time anyway. I'm not a fat girl, I'm not model thin either... I'm a size 10 ... personally I think the model looks bad in this dress since she has no curves. Anyway, I did lose the pounds I was planning on and the bunching in the back DID NOT GO AWAY! I am to the point where if I lose more weight my dress would be too big. I am apparently too "short waisted" for this dress... which I've never heard in my life... Anyway so if you try this dress on in the store and it bunches in the back, be aware that unless you get a body transplant, it probably will not go away. The dress is also unable to be 'taken out" in the hip area because of the delicate fabric would show the old thread holes. I tried on about 10 more dresses after this one and some fit great and looked great, but despite the fact that DB would exchange my dress for me, I kept this one because I love it and the bunching in the back is now minor when I used fabric tape and I just LOOOOOVE this dress... just beware, if you are also "short waisted" that the bunching in the back area will not go away most likely...
