One Shoulder Gown with Handkerchief Hemline Style SWG579
glamorous and modern
Any image of this dress does not do it justice. It was the only dress I fell in love with out of all the ones I looked at and tried on and matches me perfectly. It mixes 1920's Hollywood with a more modern feel. It's made incredibly well with a lot of layers while still being lightweight and airy. I'm a size 4 and most dresses I tried on made me look like a stick. If you are thin it will give you just the right amount of curves. The beading in the right light shimmers beautifully! I can't wait to wear this for my wedding!

Delicate & Beautiful
This was to be my dress, it is so elegant and flowing. I felt unique and beautiful in this dress. Our wedding was outdoors on the grounds of a castle/manor surrounded by fall colors and beautiful flowers. It fit almost perfectly, only needed to be hemmed with a very slight taking in on the shoulder. I couldn't be more excited to have my dream dress. I purchased it in the Champagne color. Unfortunately when alterations were made the top bodice fit extremely high on my body with tightness in the one shoulder/arm/mid area with gapping across the top. Since it had to be pulled up from the middle to be hemmed it completely altered the way it fit. The original alterations to hem & take up shoulder cost over $500! I spent many days returning to have it fixed but each time it fit the same way, I could not wear the dress comfortably or sensibly. Several staff members went truly beyond to make sure I was going to have a dress that fit. I had to settle for a entirely different dress 5 days before my wedding. I do not have any words that can describe my disappointment, I was heartsick. So if you do not need this dressed hemmed or many alterations it is truly a beautiful elegant dress. I am an older bride so the color and fit of the dress was perfect for me.

Old Hollywood Glamour
This dress was exactly what I was looking for. I wanted something elegant and glamorous rather than a princess style dress, David's had a lot of awesome options but this was the best. The dress' beading, layered flowing skirt, shoulder detail and drop waist perfectly captured the old Hollywood feel I was looking for.
As someone who is a size 10 an d 5"9 I was thrilled that the dress accented all the right parts of my body.
Overall, I found this dress to be beautiful, comfortable and to provide incredible value for the price.

Truly a fairytale dress find
I was sort of at a disadvantage from the get-go in terms of wedding dress shopping. It was less than 5 months away and I still hadn't found anything that fit my idea of the perfect dress and looked good on me. Then I spotted this one right after it was released- it was perfect. Unique, flowy, fanciful and COMFORTABLE. Ideal for my fall, Iowan wedding. The reaction I got from guests made me all the more certain I had made the right decision. I got wonderful comments from guests who loved how the dress blew in the wind during the ceremony and made me look almost like some sort of wood nymph. Couldn't be happier with my purchase.
