uncomfortable and old fashioned
I wore this dress in a wedding recently, being told it was the kind of style that "looks good on everyone" - all 5 bridesmaids had very different bodies so this was a necessary feature. I felt it was not very modern - in fact, after the reception the bridesmaids and our dates went to a local bar and were asked several times if we were in a high school show choir. That is NOT something you want your bridesmaids to look like! And the fabric is incredibly uncomfortable for a summer wedding in a hot, humid climate since it doesn't breathe. All of the bridesmaids had the same issue of the dress being too loose around the chest and the crossover neckline hanging lower on one side - the bride's mother luckily was able to fix that little annoyance with one stitch on each dress. It also requires a strapless bra because of the slightly off-shoulder straps. Ultimately, the dress really didn't look that good on any of us, except the one bridesmaid who truly has a perfect figure. It made our hips look huge, and for the bustier girls it was EXTREMELY low cut - I wear low cut v-necks all the time but this just felt trashy, not to mention made finding the right bra even more difficult. And seriously, this is so NOT the "you can totally wear it again" type of dress. This is just not a very good dress, and if you love your bridesmaids you shouldn't make them wear it!! It's a good thing the bride is a friend who I love very, very dearly, because I wouldn't have suffered in this dress for anyone else!!!

Picked this dress out with my Bridesmaids and we just got them in! They are so lovely and beautiful in person! The picture doesn't do the dress justice. I can't wait to see the girls in them on my wedding day!!

New York New York
I bought this dress in Apple and received it in 2 days! It is just beautiful but will need a little alteration in the bust area. I am going to NYC for my honeymoon and wearing this with silver heels to cocktails! Fabulous RED much better than online color...a rich red not watery as I expected....very happy bride - 28 days to go and counting!
