Flattering, fresh and fun
I knew I wanted a tea length gown and went back to DB for a 2nd time to try on dresses.
Like other reviewers I was thrilled this gown has pockets.
Wow ! They are not easily visible, but so cute and convenient. My right hand is in a pocket in both pics.
The pic shows me in a size 14, but it had to be pinned, since they didn't have my size. I'm a 12 in bridal gowns and wear a street size 10, 5' 6" 149 lbs.
I really liked the sweetheart neckline which adds shape and is so flattering. I didn't try on the petticoat since I liked the shape the dress has.
I tried it on with the Felina seamless long bra (38 B). It was a little too padded for my taste, but provided great tummy control. It adds a visible, slimming effect.
I added a DB sash with 3 pretty purple/ mauve-toned flowers and a mauve satin ribbon.
I included the DB crystal t-strap heels (style Tia), which I bought that day. They are dyeable and the heel is a comfortable 3".
Overall this dress felt light, fresh and wearable for a May civil ceremony along the River Walk in San Antonio, TX.
I hope this review helps you decide on your perfect dress. I for one have relied on all the pictures on this site of real brides-to-be to make a choice. The models are gorgeous, but it's great to see these gowns on real women.

I was disappointed
I was disappointed at the level of the dress.
Around a single ply of felt true Tulle dress inexpensive.
This dress is not fit for a wedding ceremony dresses.
I was looking for a wedding dress.
This level is for the reception.
Too falling price-quality dresses.
This dress is actually better than the pictures.

Perfect in Polka Dots
I LOVED my dress. I loved every bit of it. Especially the polka dots and my secret pockets. I am only 5ft4 but with some tayloring the dress fit me perfectly. I did buy the poofy underskirt and fitted corset bra which helped fit much better and added flair. For a curvy girl this is a MUST! I had to get it taken in the bust because I bought my dress in a 12 and the dress fit my bottom and mid section perfectly but was HUGE in the chest. I also bought the sash but it was kind of plain so added a few embellishments and had the sash sown to me dress in order to stay put. I was married on a Farm in almost 100 degree weather. The shorter dress was easy to dance in and also very airy which helped because although my hair and make-up ended up melting I wasn't dying under the fabric. I am so happy with this dress that I am considering dying it and wearing it as a party dress!

I bought this dress for my backyard wedding. It was the most amazing dress, fit perfect and I had no problem moving, sitting or breathing in it! I received nothing but positive compliments. It really is a classy dress and it has pockets!
