Spaghetti Strap Chiffon A-Line with Front Draping Style BR1007
Beautiful, runs VERY small
I purchased this dress in a 14, I wear a comfortable size 12 in street clothes, and it still didnt fit, that bustline band is WAY too small (I was able to zip it all the way at the waist, and then wiggle into it, but it was way too tight), had to send it back for a 16, why can't clothing manufacturing be consistent and universal???? I am smaller on top than the bottom, so I do not think that was problem.
After returning it (hasslefree, sent it, wait a few days for it to be checked, and then received credit) I ordered a 16, and it fit just right. Beautiful, flowing dress.

This dress is perfect for an outdoor wedding. I was married on a lake and the breeze made it look so beautiful. I received many compliments also. The sizing is true--order a size bigger due to the band under the bustline, because I didn't and had to send it back and go for the next size up. I'm 5'9 and the length was perfect-I even went barefoot.

The dress is more beautiful in person but the band under the bust runs small. I measured using their sizing guide and ordered one size up from there. when I got the dress I couldn't even zip it up. It bottlenecks where the band is. (I must have large ribs) The larger size came and the band fit but the bust was too big and the length was too long. The return process was painless. It is a stunning dress but be prepared to spend some money on aterations.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary by renewing our vows during a family cruise. I absolutely adored this dress! I actually ended up liking it so much more than the one I had years ago. It flows well and is very forgiving in all the right places. It made me feel comfortable & very feminine.
Now about the size, I'm a 38 DD and I usually wear a 16 or XL top, so I ordered a 16, but it's snug. So if you're busty, you might want to go 1 size up or do what I did and get the strapless bra from David's Bridal. It held me in just enough so I was able to squeeze into the dress without worrying about popping the zipper. :)
As for the length, I'm 5'2" and had 3 1/2" heels, but still had to get the length altered. It cost me $79 for the bra, $125 for alterations, plus $65 to add sleeves. The seamstress modified the length in the back as a train.
Expensive alterations, but a great dress for a great price!
