Rated 5 out of 5 by Leigh8809 Absolutely Love This Dress!!
I am having a beach wedding very casual. My fiance is wearing nice dress khaki pants and a white button up or polo shirt. I wanted a simple dress and found it. I found this dress online & was scared of buying it. I went to the davids bridal store and really couldn't find anything I liked. After reading the reviews and showing my mom we bought it.
I am a 36 1/2 bust. I wear a C cup and the size 8 dress fit. Go by the measurements exactly. I didn't measure my stomach and it was a little snug, the top is loose but not too loose. It fits comfortable, and I love this dress. The beading is beautiful flowers. Also it is really long, I'm 5'2 and had to have the bottom altered but it looks great. It is flowy and very beautiful.
Plus we paid for regular shipping on sunday night and it got there wednesday morning. I would recommend this dress to everyone.

"I bought this dress when my fiance and I decided we were going to elope (just us!) and honeymoon in Hawaii. It is perfect for the occasion!
It is very airy and ethereal; the fabric is lightweight and extremely comfortable. I am 5'4", 117 lbs, 34B so I got the size 4. It's just a TINY bit loose in the bust, but I tried a strapless bra with it and that seemed to fix the problem. The straps are perfect and I have no problem with the band under the bust being too tight, either. The whole dress is very comfy to wear and a nice fit. The length is very long, but that's because I'm short, so that will probably be the only thing I need adjusted. ^_^
The pictures here don't do this dress justice; it is so much prettier in person and once you put it on! Such a great decision/purchase- I can't wait to wear it on the beach! :o)"

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wife38571 I love this dress
I fell in love with this dress when I saw the picture of it online. We are having a non-traditional kind of wedding island/hippie kind of themed so this dress was perfect for me, and might I add I am also 7 1/2 months pregnant so this made a beautiful dress that fit my belly wonderfully......I'd recommend it over and over.......

Rated 4 out of 5 by BisousBride Beautiful dress, value for money
This is a beautiful dress and well made too, so it's great value for money and I agree with all those ladies who say it makes an ideal destination or outdoor wedding dress.
I bought this dress in white, size 4 online. Like several others, I tried on the bridesmaid version of this dress in sizes 2, 4 and 6 instore and, as found by others, the fit isn't the same. The size 4 instore was actually too big for me. The size 4 in the wedding dress fits me perfectly everywhere except the band below the bust is a little bit tighter than ideal. Although it wasn't uncomfortable, I was conscious that the 2 bottom layers kept riding up around my stomach area which was a little annoying, at least I think this was caused by the tightness and not the design.
It is also very long. I'm 5"8 with my heels on and it still needed to be taken up 2-3" which isn't cheap. Because of the design of the dress (it has 3 separate layers) they all have to be altered separately. The size 6 would have been much too loose on me around the bust and the straps would have needed to be shortened, as well as getting the hem taken up. This would have meant quite expensive alterations especially when you consider the cost of alterations compared to the actual dress price.
I didn't have the time or the money to spend altering it (had a whirlwind destination wedding), so I opted for the smaller size and just kept away from the chocolate and cookies for the weeks leading up to the wedding and it was fine.
Definitely be aware of the sizing issues when considering this dress but, sizing aside, it is a stunning dress and suits all kinds of body shapes too.
