Â by sktowns Gorgeous, heavy, delicate
I am so conflicted about this dress. The beadwork is STUNNING and very unique. As others have said, it's incredibly heavy and difficult to move in. There were some beads falling off when it reached me. It runs fairly large and the heaviness of the dress tends to pull it down. I'm 5'8, 115lbs and purchased a Size 2 but probably would've preferred a Size 0 since the jersey material gives it some stretch. If I decide to keep it, it will need to be tailored to help keep it up, and that will not be cheap due to the intricate beading. It is also quite sheer and would need a slip underneath (I was wearing nude "no show" undergarments and it was still very obvious).
I also prefer the look of it with a thin belt to cinch it in at the waist.
With ALL of that being said, it is one of the most beautiful gowns I've tried on and I am seriously contemplating it as my wedding dress!

I LOVE THIS DRESS! It is beautiful, but am so disappointed with the quality of it. I ordered it after visiting the store, and the sales associated fitted me with the correct size. Upon further inspection, I noticed that the beading was coming off. I sent it back, and the second dress had beads coming off as well. I really don't want to return it, but think it is too delicate to be worn. If you are willing to look past the missing beads, the dress is very heavy, but really comfortable. It definitely requires a slip and fits bigger than expected.

Â by Elyse AMAZING with a belt!
I adore this dress! I originally fell in love with a similar designer dress that was $5000, then tried on this one and felt like it was as equally beautiful for a fraction of the price! The beading is stunning, however with that being said it is also very heavy. HOWEVER, if you put a belt on the dress, it gives the dress structure and makes it SO much more comfortable! For the price and elegance of this dress I would give it 10 stars! At 5'9, the dress length was perfect and I didn't have to alter it at all. Sizing can be a little funky though, so I would recommend ordering a few different sizes and just see which one makes you feel best.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by jj922 Too Heavy!
I went in to the store thinking this dress would be the one, or at least top 3, and I was so disappointed. The beading makes the dress so heavy! It was also extremely long and because of the bead design I don't see how you could have it shortened. Also, because it is so heavy, the attached slip rides up constantly and it shows very clearly. The dress is very transparent.
The big pro of the dress is that the bead work is BEAUTIFUL!
