I was looking for a non traditional wedding dress, but fell in love with this dress(and the price!). I adore the colour gold, and the fact that it is head to toe ivory and gold sequins, is icing on the cake. Im not even 5' 1", and weigh about 97lbs, I ordered the 4 because my boobs don't match my body size and are quite large. And having big boobs for this dress is fine because they don't look like they are spilling out, at least not on me. It fit well in the waist, but the shoulders need to be taken in, and, big surprise, it was about 2 feet too long! You wont be able to wear a normal bra, you cant see it in the front, but with the cut back, you can see the band. I will warn you though, due to the sequins, its a teeny bit itchy under the arms, below the armpit, but if you love it as much as me, you will suck it up and most likely forget about it when the wedding starts. My wedding is in December, so this dress is great for a winter wedding. This dress is gorgeous, GORGEOUS! if you want that old Hollywood, not too traditional dress, this is perfect.

easy to wear. very flattering
I love the sequins on this dress, they're ivory and gold and just as expected from the photos on the web. The gown has a lovely drape and falls very elegantly. I think the style would be particularly flattering for pear shaped women. An improvement for me would be a silk lining, the polyester lining is hot and makes the dress feel cheap.
I bought the 12 which did up around my waist but needed the 14 to do up around my bust. I'm not busty and have a thick waist so that surprised me.

Accentuates the hips
What a gorgeous dress. A couple things about it make it tough. I am on the large end of the spectrum. I am 5'7", a size 14, and I have big boobs (38DD). For me, the dress really accentuated my hips. Also, the sequins fabric is what attracted me to the dress, but, as you might expect, the fabric is scratch in the armpits and where your arm touches the sides (the lining is very nice, it is just the front fabric to the touch). I'm not keeping this dress, but I impressed with the quality and the beautiful design. Perhaps for a slightly less curvaceous girl!
