Gorgeous, but irritates sensitive skin
I really think this is the most beautiful dress I've seen and am a little heartbroken I can't get it. BUT I don't think it can happen! The illusion neckline rubs against my clavicle and leaves two red marks on my throat that resemble a vampire bite! If you have sensitive skin at all, this may be a problem. :(

My Dream Dress
I was not impressed by this dress in the catalogue but I tried it on anyways and knew immediately it was the one! Pictures don't do it justice (unless the are professional ones for the big day). I received so many compliments about how classy and unique it was rather than your typical strapless dress. My only complaint was that when I received my dress after ordering it, it didn't fit like it did in the store. Typically the dress fits a little looser in the store because other brides have tried on the dress but when I received mine it was hanging off of me! The seamstress said I should have ordered a whole size smaller. Not sure what happened with that considering the 6 that I tried on in the store fit perfectly minus in the bust area. This dress is very difficult to alter because of the applique lace and soft layers but it was absolutely perfect!

I wasn't looking to find a dress on my first go but when I tried this dress on it fit everything I wanted. I went home to think about it and came back 2 days later and purchased it! When I first saw the dress I didn't think I would like the large lace and the sheer top, but it looks so good on. It fits so perfectly and true to size. I think I will only have to get the bottom hemmed. I feel so classic and elegant in this dress. I cried when I said Yes!!!

I absolutely adore this dress! I initially didn't want a fit-and-flare, and walked right past this dress on the rack. Luckily, my consultant brought it in and asked me to have an open mind - I'm so glad she/I did! The photos of this dress, and even seeing it on the hanger, does not do it justice. You have to try it on!
It is not heavy, and easy to sit down in (but still keeps you posture straight). I love the shape and the lace - it's classic with a touch of sexy. The lace has a funky vintage feel to it, which I love. I'm 5'0" and about 112lbs, the size 4P fit my perfectly - no alterations needed! I'm amazed :) I bought it for my 11/17/13 wedding and I can't wait to wear it!
