    I already bought a dress last summer, and made the mistake of looking at the new spring dresses at David's Bridal website today. Anyone tried on the Oleg Cassini CT326? I'm curious how it fits on real women. It is slimming at all at the waist? or does it give a preggy look? Anyone have photos of their try-on session? I'm thinking of buying a used one in a 4 or 6. thanks!

      I bought it, and I love it. Not sure that I look as thin as the model but I'm a size 8 (it fit true to size, but very snug). It is very slimming in the bodice but does flare out at the waist. I didn't mind how it flared out and I am very self conscious about fit/size.

      Davids should have some in the store, give it a try. its very affordable (esp if you can find used!!).

      I absolutely love the pockets!!

        I tried this dress on today! I'm a size 16 and thought the top was very flattering. I LOVE sweetheart necklines! For me the skirt was a little poofy and was sort of laying funny on me. I would go try it on though. It is a very classy and unique dress!

          Did you happen to take any pics of yourself in the dress so we can see how fabulous you looked?! It's such a gorgeous gown, and I would love to see this on a REAL bride, as well!

            I have a pic but I'm trying to request my FI's request not to post the pics. He thinks other people shouldn't see it before the wedding. This amazed me since's not very traditional and he went shopping with me.

            I really want to post it so if he changes his mind, I'll post it.

            I checked out the pic yesterday and it poufs some at the waist but it doesn't billow out.

              Well, I tried it on. Size 6. Here is a photo. What kind of beach shoes would you wear with it?

                I think they need to be awesome shoes since the are framed by the bottom of the dress. For the beach, I'm leaning toward wedges. This is the best pair I've found online, but haven't tried any on yet. I have some days off next week and hope to do some shopping then.

                  I think this is the dress I'm going to get. I love it! Very slimming and I'm self conscious over my tummy. Planning to wear some turquoise/teal heels - strappy with some embellishment, assuming I can find them. Just worried about tan lines on a strapless. Maybe there's a post somewhere about that...
