    How is the material? Are they nice? I can't wait. I really love the dress. I have heard that these styles are tricky to wear though...

      If this dress was on Oprah...that's why it is on backorder. I worked for Nordstrom.com for 10 years and every time something we sold was mentioned on her show we sold out in less then 24 hours. It used to drive us nuts as we only would get notified in advance 1/2 the time that the items would be on the show. The other half we would find out the week before it aired, which is not enough time to get more stock.

      I would love to see this dress in person. It looks like it might be tough for a more petite frame to wear, but I could be wrong.

        so i just called victoria's secret to find out if i could get better instructions, or find the instructions that were on the website. they said they yanked the 1 dress 7 ways off the website because it was so popular they couldn't meet the demands. It will probley be back up, along with better instructions in april.

              Here is a similar dress from american apparel for $36 in a variety of colors- My roommate has one and loves it. I don't think you can do the exact same styles but it is basically the same idea. Oh, and there is a video clip showing you how to create each of the different styles

                i saw that one - it is not quite as dressy as the VS one - i think that american apparel one is good for a bathing suit coverup or lunch but not a BM dress!

                  Yeah, I don't think i tlooks as dressy either, however, the video might be really helpful when the VS dresses come in!!!

                    the material is nice, it feels light on but is in no way see through or anything. actually the straps are quite heavy when you are trying to tie them up behind your back!
                    my sister brought the dress back over and let me try it on and play around with it (she has totally given up) the halter style is no problem and looks really nice, there one was one other way, the way with that made it look short sleeved, was not to hard either, the rest i gave up on. I really want to figure out the strapless, it's actually tricky, i thought it would be easy.
                    with that said my sister didn't help me, if you had a couple BM's helping each other do the fancy tying the back, i think it would be alot easier.
                    I'm happy with it.
                    one other thing, i think it would be hard to wear a strapless bra, the back is pretty low. you may have to go braless.
