I had originally envisioned myself in a very different dress than this one and was in the Chicago store for a fitting appointment with my mom and a few girlfriends, who all had me convinced to go with my initial instinct (short, lacy, frilly, fun). The girl who was working with me brought this dress out after hearing me talk about wanting to try on a "fantasy" dress or two (you know, those dresses you LOVE but don't really think will work for you). One she brought had a big puffy skirt and while it was BEAUTIFUL, my friends all agreed it wasn't "ME" and wouldn't fit my outdoor wedding/farm venue; when she brought this dress out on the hanger my friends didn't even want me to try it on, but I insisted and when I came out of the dressing room it was settled...THIS WAS IT!! It's an absolute show-stopped on, much more than the model here shows. The pockets are CLUTCH and the underarm cutouts add a sexy component to an otherwise very conservative dress. I got a 0 and had to have it taken up about 2 inches at the top and bottom each (I'm 5'3" 115) but it fit through my rib cage/bust (32-33). You won't find a higher quality material in the dress and the simple design really shows itself off on the dance floor (BUY A DRESS YOU CAN COMFORTABLY DANCE IN!). I've received dozens of compliments from girls and guys who attended our wedding that this is their favorite wedding dress they've ever seen, maybe the girls are just being nice/polite, but for dudes to comment on any wedding dress is really saying something. If you're a classic girl, wanting to show off your simplistic style THIS IS YOUR DRESS!!

Slightly different than the picture, but still great!
I loved how simple, yet elegant this dress looked online, so I had to order it. Upon trying it on, I found that the gathered skirt area is a bit fuller than it looks on the model and the band at the waist is more prominent. But I still love it, so those things weren't deal breakers.
I'm 5'0", 108 lbs. with a 34B bra size and I ordered a 0; it fit perfectly.

THIS DRESS IS AMAZING
This is a great dress for smaller bodies. I didn't think I could ever do a V cut neckline. My stylist pulled this dress for me and I was completely shocked at how AMAZING it looked. So simple. Has pockets!!! SO COMFORTABLE.
It looks awesome with a belt. And the price??? Can you beat it??

I was so excited for this dress...but sadly I sent it back. Unless you are a super skinny gal, it's going to make you look bigger than you are. I don't have a belly, but I looked totally pregnant in the size 4 I ordered. I have a very small bust, and the shoulder straps fell off every time I moved. Not ideal, ha. I wanted to look like this model and thought this was THE one...but it was far from it. I returned it a few weeks ago and I'm still waiting for the refund.
