Rated 5 out of 5 by SoCalMom Great Dress!
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!

I was a little scared ordering a dress online, but it got here and fit so well and I just fell in love with it even more. I would highly recommend this dress. It is gorgeous!!!

I bought this dress for my vow renewal ceremony on the beach. This dress is more beautiful in person and looks very flattering. I agree with the other reviewers that you should get one size larger. I have a large chest, and one size larger fit on top perfectly. Also, unless you are pretty tall, you will need to get this dress hemmed. I am 5'6, and it went past my feet!
If you are getting married on the beach, this dress is absolutely perfect! The dress is very lightweight and will travel well.

I bought this dress in ivory for my second wedding....the one and only thing to be careful of is the band on this dress...it is sized down so definitely order this dress one size up or you won't be able to breath...the alterations may run a little high because of the size up and the fact that it is very long. Other than those minor details, the dress is awesome...it's beautiful and well made. Great for an outdoor wedding!! Can't wait to wear it this August!!!
ps...also, the shipping and customer service were very good.
