Rated 4 out of 5 by Kbubble Not the right fit for me
I don't want this to seem like a negative review, but a helpful one to prospective buyers. I had tried this dress on previously as a bridesmaid dress in my regular size of 14 and it fit although it was a bit snug in the bust area. I will be 6 months pregnant by the time I need this for my wedding so I ordered a size larger and found the same fit in the bust, but the under layer was too tight and I had not anticipated this based on previous fit and dress description. I love the dress and think it will be perfect for my July wedding, but I will definitely need to return this one, order a womens size and have some alterations done in the top and strap area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChrisFromCanada Awesome dress!!!
I just purchased this dress for my wedding in August, and the arrival rate was phenomenal!!! It was here within 7 working days!!! I really am happy with this dress. i am not a "dress" type person and this dress is very elegant, but casual and comfortable! The beading is beautiful and you cannot appreciate it online. i was very nervous ordering something on line, especially my wedding dress...but the price was right and I am so glad I did. It is a bit long and it will have to be hemmed, but I knew that after reading the previous reviews. I would recommend sticking to the chart..it seems to be accurate. I am usually in a 12, but the chart said for me to get a 14...and it fits perfectly!! i would recommend this product and David's bridal for anyone interested..this was an excellent experience...Thank you David's Bridal!!:)

Rated 5 out of 5 by melanieMae BEST ONLINE PURCHASE
I love this dress. I went to six different bridal gown shops and couldn't find a dress that I loved and didn't cost me an arm and a leg. Before I went shopping I found dresses online that cost under $200 so when I went to the stores I couldn't believe I couldn't find a dress under $200.00. I didn't want to spend over $300 all together (including alterations). I was depressed that I couldn't find anything, I went back home and went online to Davidsbridal.com and found this dress. I was a little nervous that it wouldnt fit and I would have to get alterations done but I took the chance and ordered it online without trying it on. I knew you could return the item if you didn't like it. But to my surprise the dress fit me perfect. I didnt have to change a thing. It was a little long but when I put on heels it was perfect. Everyone couldn't believe I only spent $170 for my dress and I looked beautiful in it. THANKS for an awesome dress!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by bootsysmom great with minor adjustments
Love love love this dress. So great that I could get it online. Like other reviewers said, you need to order at least one size bigger than your normal size as the band around the bust can be tight. The length was a minor issue. I am 5'8" and with 2 3/4" heels it was still just a little long (outdoor wedding so I didn't want it touching ground). I was able to get a seamstress to take it up an inch. You can't really shorten the straps as that would put the bodice too high up under your armpits- ouch. Style is very forgiving for not-so-toned tummies. I am going to wear an open weave shrug sweater over it to hide my flabby arms. Dress is classy without being flashy.
