This dress is going to be perfect for my beach wedding. The tulle is so soft and lovely. You can't tell from the photo but the tulle has a slightly "crimped" look to the fabric (you can see on the up-close photo of the back). I'm normally a size 8-10 and the size 10 fit me perfectly. The only tailoring I will have done is to have it shortened slightly. I'm 5'10 and will be wearing sandals. I also am replacing the belt with something a bit thicker and fancier. I think this dress would look beautiful on most people.

I tried the dress in the store and loved it. I just got it delivered and love it even more. The fabric is great, soft and flowy, the back is absolutely stunning. I am a size 2-4 and the size 4 fit good, might need a bit of alterations to make it a bit smaller but overall it is perfect. I actually found the vertical pleat of the fabric to be very flattering. I do have a longer torso so the upper part fit to perfection... Still undecided as to going with the satin belt or adding a more detailed one...

Picture doesn't do it justice.
I tried this dress on in the store and instantly fell in love. The back is so elegant and the front gives a really nice neck line without being too revealing. It's really beautiful for someone with a smaller cup size (I'm usually a size B) and will hide all your imperfections (such as a small belly or chubby arms). I normally wear a size 2-4 and size 4 in this dress was perfect. This dress with a more fancy sash was just perfect. Will definitely be ordering it for the wedding.

Not my favorite
I tried this dress on in one of the stores, and I found it extremely unflattering. Most of the other dresses I tried on looked okay, but this one was an immediate no. Granted, I'm on the bigger side, but the extra fabric at the top seems to add a LOT of volume. It might work well if you are a smaller person, but at least on me, it was not a good look. The back is incredibly gorgeous, however.
