Great Dress, Horrible Color This is a nice dress and looked great on all of my bridesmaids who ranged from size 4 to size 18. There is a slit in the back of the dress that isn't shown in these pictures but its not bad and I don't think any of my bridesmaids felt exposed at all. The only complaint I have, and the thing I wish I would have known, is that depending on which color you choose, the material does not allow for a uniform color in all lighting. I loved the pewter color, but 1. no matter what lighting it was not nearly as dark as what is shown on this site and 2. at least 50% of the time the dresses looked purple, especially in bright sunlight which did not go with any of my other colors but it was too late to change the color of their dresses. My maid of honor was in canary yellow, and this dress worked out very well. Just be careful and make sure you know what your dresses will look like in your colors and the material of the dress.

1 bridesmaids dress I was not "traditional" at all when it came to bridesmaids dresses. I gave ALL of my bridesmaids the choice to pick out their own dresses as long as it was the right color. I let them choose so they can find one that fit them right, and after weeks of looking and searching for the right dress for the right price, 1 of my girls chose this dress, and it was beautiful. It was beautiful in my color (mercury) and it looks great on any body type. I was very pleased with it! Plus, an added bonus was this one had pockets! September 12, 2013
Well. If only the zipper had worked. I loved this dress. I loved the color, I loved the length, and the cut was very flattering. I was excited to wear it, not only to my sister's wedding where I was maid of honor, but to events in the future, as I felt it was a very versatile dress. Until the to day of the wedding. The zipper would not budge. At all. Thankfully, a friend had accompanied the bridal party to our suite, and was able to get the zipper up after some serious effort. But once it was up, the teeth let go, causing the dress to be stuck closed with the actual zipper piece at the top and completely open down the entire back. After realizing that there was not enough thread nor safety pins in the emergency kit to rectify this 20+ inch hole that was now in my dress, I was forced to have the dress duct taped shut and to wear a cardigan over the entire ensemble in 75 degree heat. The professional pictures are not back yet, but in the candid ones I have seen from guests, the dress is a whole lot less flattering when it can barely be seen under a cardigan and is loose around the entire waistline. It's safe to say my excitement about this product was ruined by this malfunction. Perhaps it was a fluke? But I just expected more quality as a return customer who has been nothing but pleased with David's Bridal products in the past. This was $99 poorly spent. The only positive thing I can say about this situation is that, thankfully, my sister (the bride) purchased her wedding gown from David's Bride and had no wardrobe malfunctions. (Oh, and at the end of the night, I had to be cut out of the dress by the same friend who zipped me in. Even with a zipper replacement, it's ruined from the adhesive and cutting. Sigh.)

Great Dress! I am getting married May 17, 2014. We had just bought the bridesmaid dresses a couple weeks ago! I absolutely loved every single thing about the dress, and so did my girls! I have 4 bridesmaids, ranging from a size 12 to a size 20, and it looked amazing on all of them! I bought my maid of honor a black dress, with a red cumberband sash, and red heels with a bow! The other girls have a red dress, black sash, and black heels. I've gotta say, I'm very impressed with this dress :) I will be buying them garment bags to keep them wrinkle-free after reading all these posts! And I WILL have a steamer on hand the day of the wedding! August 16, 2013
