This dress is gorgeous. The beading is intricate and absolutely beautiful. It hits nicely across the collar bone and is stunning from the back. It is also a very comfortable and light dress with nice material. I debated between this and another gown, and ended up choosing the other because the other seemed to go with my venue more appropriately, though this would have been a great choice also. It is definitely appropriate for someone very confident with their shape - the material clings to every bone/muscle/potential flaw/underwear line and would require seamless underwear for smoothness. I have an athletic build and small chest and was happy that this looked nice and didn't require much to fill it out. I'd recommend.

Beautiful but unforgiving
This is truly a gorgeous dress. However, it just did not fit my body at all after trying to order 3 times. I am 5'-5" at 140 lbs (36"-30"-39") and usually street size 6 or 8. Both size 6 and 8 had side seams puckered while I tried them on. The stylist advised it could be because the fabric was cut diagonally so I had to size up further. There also was no stretch in the fabric, so any bulge would show and it was hard to lift up my arms comfortably. Sadly, I had to give up this dress than trying to order even bigger size and resorting to alternations. It'd just be too much work and risk. But I'm sure this dress will look stunning if it's on someone slender.
