    I think it's a great dress, if it is one size too big, go for it. But 2 sizes too big is sometimes a really lot and you might have to pay mucho to get it fitted down to you. How much is the shipping?

    If it ws me, I would buy it, but I am impulsive like that.

      I would get it shipped to a friends' house in WA for $20. So technically I'll be paying $95 dollars for the dress. I have a feeling it might be more than one size too big, but there is no intricate beading on it or anything so it might not be that difficult to get it altered to size. I think it is at least $700 new, so alterations couldn't possibly be more than $600 could they?? I really have no idea

        and if it really doesn't fit, you could always sell it on

            I would definitely get it if I were you. That price is just too good to pass up. And it's true that you can always resell it if it really doesn't fit.

              Well I got a response from the lady and she's had it professionally bustled and said it would be very hard to alter. I think it's going to be too big for me She says it fit very close to her street size (12) and I'm a street 4 so it's not gonna work... I'm sad! Oh well, maybe I'll find another one on ebay somewhere.. heh. Thanks for all the responses ladies!

                      My dress that I am wearing this Sunday is Winnie Couture

                      Winnie Couture Style 2102 -Elegant silk sheath tank style gown with sweep train.* Hand beaded Swarovski crystals, rhinestones, and silver embroidery create intricate design on matching V-neck and low V-back.

                      Honestly, I am not in love with it 100% in love with it because I think my FI will be disappointed and is expecting something more typical but everytime I put it on I get so many compliments. The picture online doesn't do it justice so if you have a chance to try some on, do so.

                      The part I do love is that it simple and I am not into the big dresses. The back is an open V with tons of swarvoski crystal (elegant but not blingy) and it also has a small train. The weight makes it perfect for a destination wedding, it's a 100% silk. Best part is it only cost $638!
