great dress but not for me
i'm 5'6, about 125 lbs and the size 4 fit perfectly. the dress is gorgeous, pink like the photos. the material is soft, feminine, and very flowy. but the very high waist and the voluminous nature of the skirt was a very unflattering combination. i loved the back of the dress and wish the front didn't look so bulky. i'm not very curvy, maybe the dress would look amazing on someone with a more hourglass body.

Nice Mix of Traditional and Unique
This dress has a lot of flow and volume without sacrificing comfort. The sheer top and back add a dash of sexiness without exposing too much. Despite the pink color the dress is traditional enough to please (my 90 year old grandmother loved it). If you are looking for a formal or more traditional dress this probably isn't for you due to the color and linen like fabric, though it definitely looks bridal. Tips: I have an hourglass figure and am of medium build. Order a size up if you are busty. A wide sash can be used to drop the waist from an empire to an A-line without sacrificing the lines of the dress if that flatters your figure more.

On the fence
On on the fence about this dress, which I was fortunate enough to try on last week at the Chicago store. I fell head over heals in love with this dress online and was sure it was "the dress." In person, the fabric looks and feels like linen. I thought it would look and feel silkier. As it says, the dress is pink and it is definitely PINK! The color is pretty, but I'm just not sure it's bridal enough. It looks more like a gorgeous gown that would be fantastic for a fancy party. The fullness of the shirt also adds a little bulk/puff at the lower tummy, which is not terribly flattering.

I just received this gown today and I am in Love. It is so pretty in person, and lightweight. It has a gorgeous train, gorgeous color of pink. So effortless. It fits true to size. Came in a cute linen garment bag and wood hanger. No regrets!
