This dress was great! My sister choose it for her wedding in October in Truffle. The color was gorgeous for a fall wedding. The dress was very comfortable and flattering. It fit all 5 bridesmaids well ranging from size 2 to 22 and even one girl who was 7 months pregnant! It was a great dress and we were all complimented on how nice it looked! Thanks for a beautiful dress!

This dress is very flattering on larger woman (24 & 18) who have large busts (wear the proper undergarments). Both my bridesmaids are plus size with extremely large busts. They tried on several dresses and this one made them both look very slim throughout there body even in the color we choose, which is Apple Red.

DO NOT BUY this dress if you have any sort of chest.
The dress that I tried on in the store did not fit the same as the dress that I actually received. First of all, the size that I ordered, an 8, fit much tighter when I received the order than the size 8 that I tried on in the store, so I had to order again for a size 10. Even then, the fit was not the same, but that is what I had to go with.
The dress does not have any support or structure in the bodice, so throughout the wedding, the dress started sagging more and more, and I had to constantly pull it up. It also did not offer as much cover as I needed in the bust area. This was very odd because I thought it was fine when I tried the dress on in the store.

Most flattering dress for ALL my bridesmaids
This bridesmaid dress was one of my top 3 pre-selected dresses. The chiffon rouched bodice helped create curves in the right spots. After letting all my bridesmaids try on any and every dress they "thought" would look good, we all ended up picking this one. It seriously was the most flattering dress for all 5 bridesmaids, all of whom have different body shapes and sizes.
The red satin was complimentary to my ivory satin wedding gown. The red is a nice deep color which looks bright for flash photos. Be aware that yellow lighting at the store does not do it justice. Thankfully the light was perfect at outdoors ceremony and indoors reception. The dresses were classy but not too fancy for our destination wedding in Maui, Hawai'i. I selected long dresses so that the girls could wear the same color but not necessarily same style shoe. By the way, there are matching red satin flip flops for less than $20 at DB! I wanted all the girls to use them. Make sure the dresses are hemmed to the proper length for the actual shoe that will be worn, because it won't look as nice in photos if it's dragging in the front. Bottomline: All the girls looked great in the dress in person AND in our wedding photos. I would definitely recommend the same dress to friends and family.
