Perfect dress with minor alterations
I love this dress! I bought a few wedding dresses before deciding on this one. The gown is so light (essential for an August wedding in Texas) and so comfortable. It passes the sit test with flying colors! It is very figure friendly and floats away ever so slightly at the hip. My only complaint was the neckline of the dress. I have broad shoulders and was not wild about a straight across neckline that emphasized my shoulders. I easily fixed this with a trip to the tailor and had the neckline altered to a sweetheart and the dress looks phenomenal! As far as length goes, I'm 5' 8" and am wearing flats. I may need to have it taken up about an inch but nothing more. It is a simple dress but can be adorned with a beautiful sash and jewelry. Perfect for my low-key garden affair.

Comfortable, Soft, & LightWeight
The Amada gown is so much more comfortable than any other dress I have tried on because it is so soft and lightweight. This gown is very true to size in street clothing and large for bridal, additionally the under fabric is a stretchy polyester.
It is constructed from three layers of fabric: the lace overlay, blush under layer, and ivory under layer. There is a rubbery strip along the bust line to keep it from falling down, which is really helpful for me, as I'm usually stuck tugging on strapless dresses all evening to keep them up. The skirt is very full and dramatic but the lightweight fabric moves with you to show flattering glimpses of your figure.
The blush under layer is a bit more dusky than expected, more beige on it's own but when paired with rose gold shows blush. My only real complaint is that this dress is unusually long, unless you are exceptionally tall and will be wearing sky high heels you will need it hemmed.

This dress was gorgeous, but sadly I had to return it. The top was both too big in the 12 and 14. I have a hard time wearing strapless dresses and thought I could add straps to this dress but there would be no way to do that.
