Said YES to this Dress!!!
I do understand where the other reviewers are coming from - but, I tried this gown on at the Beverly Hills location, and I think the entire experience is really what 'made' this dress.
First off, fits like a glove! The fabric is thin, but not completely see through, the material is soft, delicate and ethereal; it just flows behind you like smoke.
The bust is extremely flattering for anyone over a c-cup, it's still sexy, but definitely not trashy. I plan on wearing one of those backless, stick on your sides bras - (victorias secret)
I was recently in a bridesmaids dress that was so hott and spicy I was embarrassed to be around my family members. It'll be nice to not have to worry about people seeing more of me than me than I want them to.
The tie in the back is so dainty and elegant, however I do feel like the synching at the shoulders was a little thicker than shown on the model, so I might have those tightened up a tad....
So I walk out of the dressing room, and the sales associate Rachel gets my all gussied up in different jeweled sashes and head pieces. It really all came together quite beautifully.
I will have quite a few inches taken off the bottom, but that's expected. I also plan on speaking to a seamstress about attaching a small loop near the bottom so I can pick it up when I'm dancing.
I am fairly curvy I suppose, I'm a size 8/10 jeans, 34D, 135lbs. I tried on a size 10, I ordered a size 6..
Highly recommend this for a beach or even an outdoorsy desert wedding. If you're into Anthro/Free People, are constantly checking out Design Sponge, love air-drying your hair and would also like to eat during your wedding - this dress could be for you!!!!!

I'm just echoing the other reviews here - the fabric is so cheap, and there is hardly any design. I can't wrap my head around the fact that this is $800, while something intricate and beautiful like the Cypress gown is $600.
Would not recommend at all.

Confused by the reviews...
I'm not quite sure why the reviews for this dress are so terrible. I purchased this dress to wear in my wedding in August. It is at the oldest winery in the U.S. and is absolutely perfect for the venue. I used the dimensions on the website to measure myself and the dress fits perfectly. It may not be the highest quality dress out there but I assure the quality is not poor (my standards are very high)- and I only plan on wearing it once. It is beautiful, flowy, matches my bridemaids dresses perfectly, and looks stunning on. If you are seriously considering this dress, please don't let the other reviews sway you (there is always the return policy). I am in love with this dress and cannot wait to wear it when I marry the man of my dreams! (Just for reference I have a size 4.)

I was so excited for this dress; I really wanted that romantic greek goddess look for my casual wedding. But the dress was very ill fitting--I'm admittedly short and curvy with a small waist--but the fit was just weird, plus there's no boning or support on top. (i ordered a size 8). The bra cups are visible through the fabric, and it's see through from the waist down. I'll definitely be returning it, as it's not worth 800.
