Beautiful Dress with structure I bought this dress for my Feb wedding at Walt Disney World. Outside of giving the description it is beautiful, I want to go into a bit more detail to help those who are online shopping (which can be nerve racking!) This is a vintage "inspired" dress, so the ivory is the ivory that has a bit of yellow in it. Gold jewelery looks great with it. Even though my wedding ring is white gold, I found some amazing pearl, crystal, gold jewelery that looks great with it. The gold really compliments the dress and the applique. The applique is "mixed medium" and has beads and small sequins. Originally from the picture I thought it might have crystals since it was "Hollywood glam" inspired; this is not the case. So I actually switched out jewelery once I got the dress. Do not buy jewelery before you see the dress. I found that the gold, crystals, and pearl jewelery really looks great but eliminated a necklace because of the intricacy of the top. The fit of this dress is AWESOME. I am a plus size bride and I have what I call a "linebacker" build. I have broad shoulders and I am built like a ruler (no real definition between waist and hips---I am really hard pressed to actually point to where my waist is). This dress has a great internal structure. When I tried it on, I did not even have the proper under garments and just wore a regular bra. The dress still gave me a defined waist. I just kept looking at my reflection and being like "where has that waist been my whole life?" The dress is comfortable to wear, but it is a thick material with lots of under layers (true ballroom style). I am getting married in Feb outside in Florida, so temps will (hopefully!) be perfect. This dress might be a bit hot if you are getting married outside during the summer. Even though this describes a chapel train, I guess I did not fully understand what that meant, so it is a bit longer than I had expected. In the picture above, you can see it cuts of so you can't quite see the whole train. It has a defined train. I wasn't planning on a big train, but I think it is going to work well and be amazing in pictures...it sure is going to get dirty as my wedding is outdoors! Finally, the fit of the chest. I have a larger chest and my mom was really concerned that I was going to be showing off too much cleavage. When I am watching "Say Yes to the Dress," she regularly complains about how much cleavage is being shown and asks "why would you want to show all your family that??" She loves this dress. She finds that even though it is a sweetheart neckline, it is tasteful and does not flaunt the "girls." You still have a great exposed chest area, but the "girls" are not trying to jump out of the dress. I will note that I was not wanting to buy a ballgown. I was actually looking to buy a halter empire waist dress. When I saw this dress, I thought "wow, I just have to give it a try." I was not disappointed and very surprised. Where I thought this type of dress would highlight my stomach and lack of a "sleek" figure, it did the opposite. It made me look and feel thinner. It made me feel beautiful and not self conscious. It works well to accentuate all the best parts of you and I do not even know how it gives someone without a waist, a waist. I couldn't be happier. Thanks for reading and happy dress shopping!

My Perfect Dress I absolutely loved wearing this dress on my wedding day. This was the second dress I had ever tried on, but I knew it was something special right away. I actually went to another appointment at another bridal boutique, but came back to David's to buy this dress. It could not be beat. It was the perfect combination of classic elegance and modern charm. It even had pockets! As a plus side bride, I found it to be extremely figure flattering without being frumpy. I truly loved my gown and wish I could wear it every weekend! April 16, 2014
Great Dress! This dress is absolutely beautiful!! It is very flattering and I loved the way it fit especially in the back. It has an amazing train. Even at full price its a great buy but at the clearance price it is a steal!! Love this dress! January 2, 2014
BEAUTIFUL I just bought this dress today, and I could NOT be any happier with my choice! As a woman with curves, I never thought a dress with this shape would be flattering. At my first appointment, I found a dress that I *liked* but I just didn't get that feeling. I made another appointment, and this was the fourth gown I tried on, the moment I saw myself in those mirrors, I KNEW that this was the one! It makes my waist and tummy look so tiny, and lays so beautifully. The fabric is rich and hangs just the right way! I can not wait to wear this dress at my wedding in June! January 22, 2013
