Agata Swing Dress
Such a wonderful surprise
I went in to try another dress and ended up with the Agata swing dress. I couldn't be happier with my choice. It is so beautiful in person the pictures on the web do not do it justice. I wore it for my intimate beach wedding on Kauai. My photographer had a field day with it because of all of the detail in the dress. I received compliments on the dress from everyone we encountered that evening. I am looking forward to wearing it at our reception in the spring. It runs a bit small and is a little short so I went up a size. I am 5'9 typically a size 6 but got an 8.

I want this dress to work so badly, but......
A second marriage for me, I purchased this dress for my simple wedding, which will take place in February 2014. Whereas the details in this dress are even more beautiful in person, I found that the slip makes the dress appear slightly darker than pictured (more beige or taupe than natural). In addition, I was bewildered to find that the dress is a pull-over style with no zipper. As far as the fit is concerned, it accentuates my body well and looks great. As another reviewer indicated,there's no need for shape wear, nor is it too loose fitting. However, I'm having issues with the slip, as it tends to gap underneath the shell with movement, such as when raising my arms or sitting down. My concern is that it doesn't easily fall back into place. At first I thought being a bit busty, (34DD) that perhaps I should size up and have it altered if needed, but upon taking a closer look at the featured pics of the dress, the same issues appear to exist, particularly in the picture featuring the back of the dress. I really want to make this dress work, especially because of the great price, but I'm on the fence and it might be going back.

Perfect for a small wedding!
I purchased this dress for my small outdoor wedding, and it was perfect! It's gorgeous and fit wonderfully. I got a size 0, it was just a bit longer than on the model, but I'm rather short. I didn't have it altered and it went to my knee. I was worried the dress would not hold up well for some photos, but it is a lot sturdier than it looks, and soo comfortable! I adored this dress from the moment I opened the package. The website photos do not do it justice, but I checked out some blogs that featured this dress, and I knew it was going to go great with the theme of my wedding. The groom liked it as well! I would wear this all the time if I had occasion too! I also think it would be gorgeous for bridesmaids, too in a more formal wedding.
