Unreliable Sizing My seven bridesmaids of seven different shapes and sizes got these because it is definitely a style that is flattering on everyone. Unfortunately, when they arrived, only 3 of the dresses actually fit. The size of this dress is COMPLETELY different than any other David's dresses (or dresses in general). In some the bust was too big. In one, the girl bought a size larger just to be sure, and the dress still wouldn't zip even close to all the way. When we called to resolve the matter it took three different phone calls to convince David's that they needed to fix the issue. (One or two not fitting...maybe the girls weren't sure with the sizing. Four needing significant alterations? It's an issue with the dress...). As of now we have the dresses in sizes that are mostly correct, but we still have to make minor adjustments to the four dresses. If it weren't for the sizing, I would totally recommend the dress because it is very pretty. (The Oasis color is gorgeous, too!) May 2, 2013
wonderful dress This dress style is an excellent pick...it accommodates all size and styles. I have different size bridesmaids from petite to heavy bone. They all look wonderful in this dress.. April 25, 2013
Beautiful, flattering Wonderful dress. Elegant, but flattering for all body types. I had four BMs, one of whom is very skinny, and one of whom is pregnant, and it looked lovely on both, as well as my average-sized girls. Good variety of colors too. April 23, 2013
Love the fit My friend picked this out for us to wear in her wedding. I am 5'5 and had to alter it a little. I found the neck strap needed shortened and the dress hemmed slightly. I am a 40D bust and it fit really nicely. I am a size 22 and it looked just as good on me as the other bridesmade who is a size 6! April 19, 2013
