Rated 5 out of 5 Fabulous Dress
This dress was one I thought I would try on in person, not knowing whether it would be what I hoped. Needless to say, it was much more than I expected, and an incredible dress for the price. It was a little smaller than my normal dress size, which the sales woman confirmed that it runs a little small, but so perfect for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 Perfect Wedding Dress (on a Budget!)
This dress was absolutely the perfect dress for my wedding. I live in Colorado but eloped on 10/05/15 in Washington. The dress rolled up and traveled well in my suitcase (it was the only thing in my carry-on!), and had a few days to hang and "air out" prior to the wedding. The sash needed ironing, but keep in mind that the dress cannot be steamed, though I felt that only the underskirt was a little wrinkled (but not visible to anyone).
The dress was light and comfortable. Yes, the under-layer of the skirt is cheap, but it is under everything else! This is why this dress is a $520 Watters dress instead of a $1000+ Watters dress - and it was absolutely the price and style I wanted for my wedding in a forest. There were two layers of tulle and two "underlayers" beneath the tulle; the tulle was soft and flowy. I would recommend getting a slip if you do want to wear a garter; I could see mine through the dress and removed it just before the wedding due to this! I loved the mesh illusion neckline, but I also had a little bit of redness on the left strap by the end of the day. I felt this wasn't that big of a deal though, and was acceptable given my love for this dress (plus it wasn't really that itchy on that spot).
Also, I ordered the size 16 and am just over 5'11". I wore flat shoes and the dress landed a little above the floor - which was fine for me given the setting. I felt the sizing was a little small, as I originally ordered a 14 based off of my measurements, but had to exchange for a 16.
All in all, I loved this dress and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting a beautiful dress (and on a budget). It was beautiful and I haven't stopped receiving compliments.

Rated 4 out of 5 I'd recommend!
I didn't want to spend a fortune on my dress, so the lucca maxi was perfect for me! The dress did need a few alterations on the top (the straps were extremely uncomfortable on my shoulders). I ordered a size 4 and it fit perfectly! I'm smaller on top, but have a curvy waist and thighs. I had an outdoor southern California wedding, and it ended up being 106 degrees (yikes). I never felt the dress was too heavy or hot. I ended up wearing another dress for dancing, because I felt the straps restricted my arms too much. Overall I would recommend this dress.

Rated 1 out of 5 Looks cheap
Maybe I should have expected this dress to be a cheap piece of garbage at $520, but I feel like that is still a lot of money for how poorly made this dress is. I tried it on in the store and the sample is different from what I got in the mail. See how the skirt in the picture looks completely opaque and full? Well, in real life there are two layers of what is essentially fish netting, not exactly a high quality fabric. You can see the wrinkled $1/yard lining straight through the skirt. Just to demonstrate how cheap and thin the tulle is, the one I got in the mail had a silver dollar sized hole in the under layer of tulle. The zipper barely moves and is on the side. Have you ever seen a wedding gown with a side zipper? Yeah, me neither. The tulle is connected to the zipper on that side, making the hips look completely uneven. My future MIL also noticed that the waist is not gathered consistently. I could continue, but you get the point.
