I love this dress!
I bought this dress in the rose color to wear as my wedding dress, and I'm so glad I did. It came in the mail today and I'm very happy with it. It makes me feel beautiful!
Neither white or ivory are complimentary colors for me; I have pinkish tones in my skin. This pinkish nude color still makes me feel like a bride but also looks really great with my coloring.
I am 5'7" tall, 132 lbs, 34B, and the size 4 fits like a glove. The length is good - it's maybe 3 inches too long, so I can either wear heels, or get it hemmed if I decide to wear flats.
The fabric flows beautifully when I move. It's so graceful. It's also much lighter weight than any other bridal gown I've tried on, and the bustier is decently comfortable.
Things to note: 1) the skirt is see-through; I had on nude panties and could totally see them. A slip or some Spanks will do the trick. 2) For me, there is no room to wear a bra, but there's just enough padding in the cups that don't really need one. 3) The sash that comes with it doesn't look like much. I think most people will want to get something else. 4) On the plus side: this fabric does not wrinkle.
Overall, I think it's a lovely dress for my casual wedding. It's exactly what I want.

Finally had an occasion to wear this dress! Recieved complements all night on it. Was a little on the small side on the top, I ordered a size 0 and normally wear 0-2...but the hook and eyes inside kept the dress in place all night. Can't wait to wear again!

I bought this gown for a black-tie gala. It was a last minute purchase, so I was thrilled when it came and fit perfectly. I'm 5'9, 165 pounds and purchased the size eight. I'm a 34/36B and the top fit pretty snuggly -- I was not able to sneak a bra in without it being too tight. I loved the way the tulle felt, and it was very comfortable and easy to stand, dance, and sit in. I wore 3" heels and the length was perfect, just brushing the tops of my toes.
The only reason I'm not going with an excellent rating is the sash -- I didn't have time to purchase a different sash, but would have if I could. The sash that comes with the dress is very thin and flimsy, and slid around throughout the night looking sloppy.

Love this dress
I bought this dress in grey last fall for a very high profile black tie military ball . I was invited as a special guest because I made the cake for all 500 guests. Working on the giant cake all day I had about 5 minutes to get ready . Although my hair most likely had buttercream in it, and my makeup job was lacking, the dress alone transformed me from a stressed out baker into an effortlessly elegant woman! Best purchase ever! I'm back looking to get this dress in softer colors for a wedding cake shoot I'm planning for my business. If I could afford to buy it in every color I would!
The only thing that troubled me about the fit was that it is (as seen in the picture ) tight in the boobs... I'm a size 6, but got an 8 to keep the girls in check. I'm a 36 D, and they still popped out a bit...
I'm super tall, 5' 10" and wore 3" heals and the dress still touched the floor.
