I purchased this gown for my wedding in April. I am an older bride and was looking for something elegant and classic. This dress is really beautiful. It does run a bit large, I am normally a 6-8 and heavier on top and the 6 fits perfectly. it is a tad long for me but I plan on having the front shortened. The train is subtle and trails very elegantly. It is also very comfortable and feels almost like a nightgown! I like the fact that it will allow me to wear the proper underpinnings and has a bit more coverage than some gowns. It can also be accessorized to suit whatever style you are looking for. I am very happy to have found it!

I went into the Beverly Hills store with my fingers crossed that the Odessa dress would work (sadly, it did not fit me very well). The dress is really pretty, extremely comfortable (I even did the sit down test with it!), and photographs well. The length is perfect for me (I'm 5'5, 125, size 4), so this dress probably won't work if you're a whole lot taller. I'm extremely self-conscious about upper arms, and this dress made me feel great about them!

This dress is absolutely lovely, I just bought it in preparation for my wedding this coming summer! I love it so much already.
The fabric is very soft, and slightly stretchy. The shape is very flattering and looks very sharp offset with a belt or sash. Definitely emphasizes curves, but in a nice way. It is easy to sit down in and isn't too long - making wearing it at a reception probably very comfortable.
The details about the dress suggested ordering a full size down, and I'm very glad I did. I usually order dresses in a size 6 but I ordered this in a size 4 and it fits pretty much perfectly. For reference point on sizing - I'm about 125 lbs and 5'4". My measurements are:
Chest - 36.5"
Waist - 27"
Hips - 37"
It is made very well, it is comfortable, and it is quite affordable! It looks very romantic paired with the right shoes and hair, etc. I would definitely recommend this dress to anyone who wants something sweet and simple. I am so excited to wear this on my big day!!!
