Spaghetti Strap Chiffon A-Line with Front Draping Style BR1007
Very Pretty but Very Tight
I read all of the reviews posted about this dress and didn't pay enough attention to those who warned about the extremely tight empire waist. I measured myself according to David's Bridal size chart and found myself to be a little bigger than a size 6 and little smaller than a size 8. I am 5'4'' and weigh 130 pounds with a size A bra cup. I ordered a size 8. The dress is very pretty and very 'flowy' but I could not take a deep inhale with that band at the top of my chest. It made a dress that should have been extremely comfortable, extremely uncomfortable! I could zip it up, but only without a bra. I unfortunately, had to return the dress. I decided to try a different dress altogether. I love the flowing chiffon of this dress but am very frustrated about the incorrect sizing of the empire waist. This dress is definitely NOT made according to the size chart, FYI.

I ordered this dress on Dec. 1st and it was delivered via UPS on Dec. 4th! It is beautiful, definitely worth the price. I am thankful that I listened to the other reviews and ordered a size up. I normally wear a 0 to a 4, I ordered a 6 in this dress and it fits perfectly. I will have to have it shortened several inches, but I expected that based on other reviews. They also included a small bag of extra beads and an extra clasp, which I appreciate greatly. I definitely recommend this dress and can't wait to wear it to my May wedding!

I Love It!
My sister got married back in August and it was my bridesmaid dress and I just saw it as a bride's dress....I just wanted to say that I LOVED it when it was my bridesmaid dress and I am seriously thinking about doing it again for my wedding dress, it was so comfortable and "flow-y" it was perfect for hot August weather. I have a big bust and a small waist and it is usually hard to find well-fitting items and this fit PERFECTLY. I recommend trying it on in the store first to see for yourself, but if you like that style go for it- I'm sure you'll love it as much as I did...Congratulations & Good Luck!

I had a simple, small outdoor wedding and this dress was perfect. All I had altered was the length, the size that fit was one larger than I usually wear, but the sizing chart was accurate based on measurments. The dress traveled well and I got a ton of compliments. I initially ordered it in Ivory, but returned it and switched to white. The return process was very quick and easy. My only complaint was that I needed to find a layer to wear under it (it's a bit see through on its own). I got a full slip that worked great... Overall, a GREAT dress for the price.
