I had been looking for a boho, beachy dress that didn't corset me so tight that I couldn't eat but one that still looked feminine. This was perfect. From the minute I opened the box I knew this was the one.
I did have to custom make a slip for underneath to give it a more elegant feel than a romper or short slip (pictured# gave it. I also added a layer of fabric to the bottom because it was ankle length and I really wanted it to touch the ground. #I used hand dyed cheesecloth for a similar gauzy feel.)
I got a small. I am 5'6" about 115. It is very flowy and not form fitting at all but with a sway that gives away your shape underneath it. I felt like a mermaid. Probably not for everyone, but if you're looking for effortless, flowy comfort, this is it.
I included a couple pictures, hope this helps!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by olderhippiebride love this dress
I have been searching for the perfect dress for my very casual beach wedding for months. This one is just right for me...I am 48 & love boho hippie-style clothing and wanted a gauzey beautiful dress that would be comfortable. It is not a traditional bridal dress and it is very very sheer & lightweight so be aware of that and plan on getting a slip for underneath. The back is very low so the slip will show as it does on the model. The color is nice but looks darker in person to me than the pics here - sort of like an ever so slightly gray ivory. The best thing about it is the way it moves when you walk - if you like to twirl, this is a twirly girl dress. For reference, I am 5'5 and 150 pounds with c size breasts and a big butt. I got the large. The length is perfect, just like the model pics.
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.

This dress is absolutely gorgeous!! Well made, flows beautifully and fits like a dream BUT it is SEE TRHOUGH!! I do not think that at this price I should also have to go find a slip to wear under it. I cannot for the life of me understand why they would not line this dress so it can be worn as is. I had to return it even though it broke my heart to do so.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by tink5082000 Too Gauzy
The style of the dress is gorgeous, but the first thing I noticed was how gauzy the dress really is. Too casual for a wedding or a party. Also, the sizing is a bit weird for chesty women. It fit my chest area perfectly, but the fabric is so loose around my waist that it makes me look like I have absolutely no shape. Not very flattering at all.
Rated 1 out of 5Â by blackw1dow Misleading title, Maybe only good for halloween
Ok the title for this one is very misleading "beach bride" , as you can see from other reviewers it's not entirely "bridal" or "beachy" .
It's unlined so you need to buy a slip, and what bride would want to wear a gauzy dress for her wedding? I wanted something a bit flowly chiffon-like and pretty. The dress should be retitled "beach bum dress or lazy days dress"..because I've only seen it work as a halloween costume..well even saying it "worked" on them is debatable.
The one thing I did like about it was the eyelet holes, but those will go unnoticed if you wear a white slip or don't have a tan. Returned!!!

I got this and couldn't be happier! The cut is to die for and the color is exactly as pictured. The fit is TTS if not a tad loose. If between sizes, go down, not up. THe dress is totally sheer, and that annoys me to no end but I have stuff to work with it.

I wore this dress to my best friend's wedding on a boat. The dress is so pretty.. the back goes lower than pictured. The only issue I had is that it is completely see-through... even the red! I wore pasties and a sort of skirt-slip underneath because I got the dress a day before and didn't have time to prepare. LOVED it but I'll definitely be getting it lined for my next use!
