Rated 4 out of 5Â by alymf beautiful dress but not for me!
i wanted this dress for my beach wedding and while it is SO lovely, i will be returning it because it's not quite perfect for my wedding. although it is meant to be a little loose, the fit is actually pretty flattering and it is completely sheer so you will need a slip or little romper. i really do love this dress and i wish i could keep it to wear somewhere else, but white is not really my thing other than at my wedding. i definitely recommend this dress because it's gorgeous!!!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by NinjaGirl Beautiful but very sheer
I was hesitant to purchase this dress because it looked very sheer online, but I wanted something white and flowy to take on vacation with me to Hawaii. There was no mention of a lining, so I assumed that there wasn't one...and there wasn't one. It is made of a very fine crinkled cotton gauze fabric that looked like a nightgown in the packaging, so I was already expecting the worst before I tried it on. Surprisingly, it is very flattering on and not nightgowny at all. The top lies smoothly across the collarbones, and the skirt falls perfectly from the empire waist down. The skirt is light and flowy. The fabric is very delicate, so there is a question about whether it will snag or not. It is not a perfect white but with just a touch of cream to it, and the bottom ruffle is a little darker and made of a different textured gauze, like a loosely woven first aid bandage type of gauze that is not finished. I am only 5'2" and the bottom hem brushes the top of my feet, so it's pretty close to how it looks on the studio model. The cut out embroidery is very pretty and adds a little dimension to the dress. Given the price of this dress versus the fabric, I am not sure if it is worth it, but it is beautifully made. If you are looking at an XSmall, here are the measurements of the one I received:
length from top of strap: 54"
bust all around: 31"
waist all around (relaxed): 28"
armhole drop: 9"
Since there was no lining, I pulled on my ivory seamless mini and it looked pretty close to what the model is wearing although she might have the seamless romper on. Also, FP added a beautiful crochet covered hanger for the dress.
