Bought this dress for a formal event that the Chamber Orchestra I play in is having. I found it in Holly on sale on the David's Bridal website. I was very leery about buying a dress like this online, but I went by their measurement guides and ordered the appropriate size. It fit *perfectly* when it came...the only alteration needed was at the hem (I'm only 5'2"). Note: this does have a rather low neckline. My seamstress is putting a piece in from the leftover skirt material to raise the neckline a bit, as it showed more cleavage than I was comfortable with. All in all though, a gorgeous dress!

This dress wasn't my choice, but the bride picked it out and she really liked the dress. Anyway, I read the reviews about the zipper problems and my dress has the same issue. I know many reviews have said they didn't have a problem, but be careful, the zipper in this dress should be stronger for the money you'll spend on this dress. I have not yet even worn the dress for the wedding, which is next month. After getting my alterations done, I tried the dress on and the zipper would not go up and wound up getting stuck. So I have the seamstress putting another zipper in the dress and hopefully I won't have an issue the day of the wedding. But, I think I am going to be prepared for a Plan B just in case and bring plenty of safety pins with me. I am glad I did see the bad reviews so at least I know it isn't just my dress that had this problem. Personally, Davids Bridal has so many selections, just think twice before you go with this one.

I wore this dress for a friend's wedding in Sangria. The color was beautiful on all of the maids and I was the star of the show with a dress with pockets in it! I only gave it 4 stars because a lot of the workmanship was shoddy when I received it--one of the flowers on the shoulder was falling off, and you can clearly see the seams falling apart around the pockets. But the dress was fairly tight on me and I didn't have any of the zipper issues described by others, so it's possible they upgraded the quality of the zipper. Overall a very beautiful dress and I was happy with the purchase.
