Sleeveless All Over Ruched Mermaid Dress Style 081883530
Mother of bride
Love the fit but the chiffon is way too long unless you are 6 foot 4! Plan on alterations
February 9, 2014
I purchased this dress for my son's wedding in Panama. The fabric was lightweight to deal with the warm climate and it packed well with no wrinkles. The ruching was fabulous and I did not have to purchase a special bra or undergarments to wear with it. The only problem was the size 8 which I normally wear was big around the middle for me and I had to have it altered but it came out beautifully and I had many compliments.

Not what I Expected
When this dress came in the mail, I was very disappointed. It was not at all what I expected. The color of this dress is NOT charcoal like it looks on the model, instead it is an unattractive, unflattering grey. The material was not what I expected either. It is overpriced polyester. I am 5'7" and this dress was about 5 inches too long. Shortening it that much would change the look. Although I really liked the slimming illusion the ruching created, I still returned the dress because the fabric felt cheap and the color was awkward. I did order another dress VW360134 in Sterling and it is far superior in color and the material is much better quality for the same price.

Great for Tall Women
This dress is exactly what I wanted for my daughter's wedding. She is having 3 shades of purple in her wedding party. This dress is actually lighter in the store than it looks online. I would have preferred the darker charcoal color but because this dress makes me look so AMAZING I don't care that its lighter. I ordered the Chiffon wrap in Pewter to go with it. Another bonus is the sizes run big, I usually wear a size 14 in regular clothing, and in the last two weddings I had to go up a size which is typical. David Bridal claims to be true to size and in this dress I went down a size. I'm tall and sometimes have to wear a small kitten heel because the dresses are short, however this dress has plenty of length. I couldn't be happier and can't wait to wear it. Next year after the wedding I may even have it shortened to just below the knee length to wear to other events because I feel so good in it. Thank you David's Bridal.
