I'd initially been eyeing this dress due to it's incredible price. Aside from that I loved the idea of the flowy, tulle skirt. After months of pondering I finally took the leap and am so happy I did! Compared to other wedding dresses I've tried on, the Annabelle Dress is so incredibly light. The tulle is so pretty and romantic. I plan to pair it with the Marnie Topper and it will be perfect for my laid back, late August wedding.
My measurements are 38-31-38 and I ordered the size 12 just to be on the safe side. It was quite large and I definitely could have sized down to the 10. I plan to keep it and have it taken in in a few months. As other reviewers have mentioned, it is quite long as well. I don't plan to wear heels so I will definitely have it shortened.
The shipping was incredibly fast - it only took 10 days to arrive! In addition to the tax that was charged when coming into the country, I was also hit with a large duties charge. I'd read this in another review, so was not surprised. Overall, I am super happy with this purchase.

Me: 5'6, 185lbs, and 38C
Dress: size 14
Really great bodice helped support my large chest. I couldn't probably go bra less. Very simple but it looked amazing when my consultant paired it with the Luciana topper!
I was surprised how snug the 14 felt after getting a feel for the other wedding dresses. Must be because of the structured bodice.

I wanted a simple and elegant dress, and Annabelle was perfect!! I'm 5'7" and usually a 2-4 in dresses, and I went with the 2. It was the tiniest bit too long, and in retrospect, I should've had it altered. When I tried on the 4, it needed a sash to emphasize the waist. (I tried Lightplay, which was beautiful with it.) But when I sized down to the 2, the waist was defined enough without a sash. Shipping was quick, too!

I wore the lapis blue as my wedding dress in a Vegas chapel and loved it!! The weight of the fabric was light enough to make me feel girly but sturdy enough to not blow away on me.. the weave on the bodice is a really nice, elegant touch as well. I paired it with a BHLDN sash. I am pretty tall and my groom and I are the same height (5'9"), so I wore sparkly sandals and had the dress shortened by a good 4-5".
Everyone loved the dress, too! I got many compliments and comments (blue as the bride? why not!). I love how it can be a different dress with the accompanying sashes.. it's like I had a wedding dress AND a dinner dress without even changing.
