Has its Pros and Cons
Being on a budget and a time crunch, this dress was an option as a solution to both those problems. I encourage anyone to try this dress if you have similar concerns and are even thinking about this dress a little bit. I wanted something that was simple, a little different, but still dressy and classic..and I wanted a gray wedding dress with white lace topper. While it hit the mark for what I wanted, it had a few things that caused me to send it back. The dress is well-made in structure, but if you don't use the panels to convert your dress in some way, you notice the strips of fabric hanging about and this ultimately ended up bugging me. The dress is EXTREMELY long. I ordered a size 4 based on my largest measurement (waist: 27 inches, hips: 34, bust: 33). I'm 129 lbs, 32C, and petite and I'd ballpark the dress was a good 6-8 inches too long. It was extremely loose in the top, but fit my waist and hips well. Given that, I had some estimates given for taking in the top and hemming it and the cost on average ended up being more than half the cost of the dress, which made it outside my budget. I also found the dress slightly difficult to move in and and overall I was uncomfortable...I think the lining on the inside was the cause (not too tight, just didn't allow for easy movement for some reason). The gray color is beautiful, by the way. It's a slightly darker color than pictured here. To sum it up: the dress just didn't fit me me very well, but it may fit someone else better! Just be prepared to have it taken up a great deal.

Got the dress in the mail today, and loved it. Loved the fit, feel, and weight of material. Really love the bust area, very comfortable. Normally wear a 12 and the 14 fit perfectly for comfort. If you aren't super tall, def will need to see a tailor because the dress is very long. The main issue I had was, I purchased the grey and it looked purplish in the mirror with my skin tone and didn't have the "wow factor". I think it would of been great, if the belt I bought to try with it - would of been available to try with the dress. Unfortunately, it sold out and the belt was cancelled. It looked to plain for wedding purposes. Would be a great dress with accessories.

Absolutely perfect, absolutely stunning.
I could not have been more pleased with this dress for my bridesmaids - it was absolutely perfect! I had a classic and elegant wedding theme, and this dress was soft and romantic so it worked perfectly. I chose the "soft plum" color, and it looked so beautiful on all of the girls. They all loved the dress and they all said they felt very comfortable in it all night. They all did different styles with the tulle at the top of the dress, and it looked perfect in pictures. I can't recommend this dress enough!

Great bridesmaids dress!
This dress is perfect for any special occassion, and the many ways you can wear it make it great for last minute wardrobe changes, or style adjustments. I wore the dress "Strapless", and my only complaint was I had to keep pulling it up all night, it didn't stay put. Otherwise, it's a beautiful dress and I received compliments all night long.
