Rated 4 out of 5 by lucydiamond Beautiful dress
My best friend (the bride!) took her five bridesmaids to David's Bridal this weekend to try on some dresses. We are all VERY different heights and shapes; tall, short, big bust, small bust- we had it all. We all loved the dress and were very happy with the fit on each of us. It is very figure flattering, very comfortable and gives the extra support with the one strap. A few of us felt like the 'fan detail' was a little weird [and we think it can be removed easily], but I think the dress is great with or without it- the fan gives it a more unique look. Our dresses will be the 'plum' color. A great fit for all body types!

Rated 5 out of 5 by accuratereview Very Glam Dress
I tried this dress on after trying on 12 other dresses for my bridesmaids and was hooked! I love this dress and my bridesmaids of all different sizes all looked very beautiful in it as well. I think this dress was extremely comfortable and had no pinching or binding in the bust area as stated in another review. The bridesmaids will also be wearing ivory gloves with the dress! :) Thank you David's Bridal!

Rated 2 out of 5 by actualbridesmaid Bad for A Cups
Actual bridesmaid review, post-wedding: This dress was not hideous, but not great. The bust had boning sewn in such that it was impossible for an ordinary civilian like me to take it in--and the boning made the dress stick out hollowly in front of me (I'm an A cup). Even with the biggest padded bra I could find, I couldn't fill that space. Not flattering! Fortunately I had it in a dark color and the bride gave us all wraps, so I think it looked fine in the photos, but I definitely wasn't ready for any close dancing.
The fit was not incredibly flattering--even when I took the waist in some (not easy), I didn't really look like I had a waist; what curves I have were more obscured than shown off. To be fair, I didn't like most of the other DB dresses I tried on either. All six styles the maid of honor had us try on had the boning/unflattering problem (this was the only non-strapless one on the list).
My fellow bridesmaid's front rosette on this dress kept drooping, but mine held up ok.
Fortunately, no one is really looking at the bridesmaids that much--the bride (in a different style of dress) looked great!

I love this dress, I am wearing it to FHs military ball :)
I tried on this dress and I love it, originally I didnt think I was going to like it but my fiance thought it looked nice on the manican so I tried it on and loved it. I'm wearing it for the military ball, and also on our cruise. Stunning dress, great price too!
