Long Chiffon Dress with Removable Flower Detail Style VC307
Nice dress, but...
This dress is pretty, but the lack of a proper waist is a little off-putting. I feel really huge in it, but that might just be me. The material is good for warm weather weddings, and the length is very elegant (I always think longer dresses look more formal than short ones).
About the sizing, because I see people have commented a lot on it... I normally wear a size 10 dress. I am 5'8, weigh around 150-155 lbs., and have a pretty full bust. Not huge, but I have boobs (36C). I had to return the 10 and get the next largest size (a 12). The material has no elasticity. Aside from the zipper, there is an inner clasp that fastens the bust in place. Three clasp sizes offered to adjust, but it can make the top a little snug.
If you are slender or small-framed, I am sure you will have no problem ordering the dress in your normal (actual) size. More voluptuous or curvier ladies (such as I) may want to consider getting a larger size and altering if necessary, especially considering the DB return policy makes you pay for shipping.

After reading all the reviews about how this dress ran small I decided to contact customer service to get their advice before ordering (I dislike having to return things). They advised me to order my true size. I'm glad I did, if I had ordered up a size the dress would have been too large on me. I'm a size 14 by their size charts, wear C cup and the size 14 dress fits perfectly. And I love the dress on, it will be perfect for my wedding!

Great Bridesmaid Gown
I bought this for my best friend's wedding and was so pleased! It doesn't look that great on the hanger, but I was satisfied once I put it on. It can work for different occasions.
Note: I wonder if some people are vanity sizing. I am a 2 and decided to get a 4 because of the reviews. The bust is NOT small. I'm going to have to get it altered because the dress is too big and there won't be enough time to send it back. I really think you should go by your true size.

Beautiful & flattering
This dress feels amazing! I am a size 2 or 4 in david's bridal dresses and I had to go with a size 4 due to the small bust area (I'm a B/C bra size). There is no need to wear a bra with this dress since there is a clasp in the inside for bust/waist area. I would recommend going with the bigger size if you are in between :) I am wearing it with the flower but it looks awesome without.
*Online services were wicked quick for delivery too! It took less than a week to get the dress in the mail.
