gorgeous, ethereal, and distinctive - possibly the one!
This dress is stunning and amazingly well-priced. It's nothing like anything else I've tried on (and I've tried on 40+ dresses). The description is right - really highlights curves.The cut of this dress allows my figure to show through, and doesn't look too short waisted like so many other "natural" waisted dresses do on my curvy, tall frame. The train pools and the skirt floats and I felt like some kind of woodland fairy - perfect for my rustic sunset wedding in the mountains. It was larger than I expected in the waist (I ordered a size 10) and so I'm ordering the 8 as well, to see which is a better starting place for tailoring. I think if it were the right size there'd be less bunching in the bodice. For the record I wore ~3" heels in the photo and I don't think I'd need it hemmed at all. The train could also really easily be bustled. This is probably the one!
One warning - the lining for most of the bodice is not sheer but a sort-of medium nude. For me, this is perfect and covers tattoos and matches my natural olive skin tone. But if you are very fair or have a browner skin tone, this may not work for you.
