I purchased this gown to wear for my February wedding, and like the previous reviewer noted, it is even more gorgeous in person! It is a heavy dress with all of the layers of tulle under the skirt, but it moves beautifully. I was pleasantly surprised that the belt that came with it features a bow clasp rather than the one shown in the first photo. It is extremely fitted all the way down to my thighs, so if you are in doubt, I would definitely size up. It is very well made and will photography beautifully!

This gown is even more stunning in person. The material is beautiful. It fits my curvy size 8 figure perfectly and is slimming and flattering. I am a fan of Mad Men and was looking for a modern gown with a vintage twist. I love this dress! It's very Joan. The belt adds retro charm to the modern silhouette. The full fit and flair skirt adds drama, which will be perfect for my wedding. The floral print is even more beautiful in person, adding a subtle detail to the gown. Although the 8 fit, I ordered the 10 to have room. The price for the quality is amazing considering the fact that this is silk! I received outstanding service at the Chicago store and would recommend it to anyone who can stop by.
