This dress is gorgeous. I purchased it for my wedding in June, and am very excited at the quality. I am pear-shaped and I was worried about the lace on the top being dense and immobile, but it's soft and moves nicely. The fit is very flattering for a pear-shaped girl. The button detail on the side and the belt really make the dress in my opinion.

A dress for a great party.
I bought this dress as my wedding & reception dress (I only want 1 dress) for an outdoor, June, Farm wedding in the Blue Ridge Mountains. I love the length - I'm a size 8, 5'6" and it hits mid-calf, below the knee. Like the reviewer before me, I found this dress is much better on a person than on the rack/online. Needs a belt, but I'm not using the white one shown that comes with it.

Lovely, but poofy
I fell in love with this online and couldn't wait for it to show up, but in the end, it's not my dress. The tulle is quite poofy - I kept wishing there was one less layer. The metallic lace is really lovely, but it didn't work with my body type, which is a pear. I think it might be great on someone who is more square and wants to add some curves. But for curvy me, it just added bulk and made my lower half look much larger than it is. The quality seems excellent and the buttons down the side are perfection.

Better in person!
I am writing this review because the picture shown does not do this dress justice! I would have never even have thought of trying it based on the picture show online. I went to the store and this dress was hanging in the window. It was beautiful! The fit is great and comfortable. I plan on wearing it as my reception dress at my wedding. I am 5'6, 135 pounds and I bought the size 4.
