@deecol, good to know about the sizing. I've been eyeing so many dresses on that site and I had the same thought as @acw271011 in that the sizes seemed small. Some of the mediums said 25 for waist size! And the proportions for bust, waist and hips seemed so off. Well now I'm gonna have to order lol

Happy to help! I'm smaller in my waist and have larger hips if you can't tell by the picture, just to give you more sizing info.

@acw271011 I don't mind - I'm normally a 10/12 in pants  and a medium in tops.

 

This is how the medium fit me.  I'm only holding the top up because I was by myself and couldn't reach to the back to zip up all the way.  I should also point out I was not wearing a bra, so the top supports pretty decent as well.  The bottom was a tad long, I'm 5'7.

 

After the USD exchange rate, taxes, shipping and customs each dress ended up being about $110.  The offer 10% your first order so it basically covered the shipping for mine.  I ordered two dresses.

 

Oh it looks great!!! I really like it! The colour is beautiful and looks so pretty on you, and will be perfect for bridesmaids! I would order probably royal blue or something like that so that I could wear it lots of times. The strapless is perfect for Mexico! Thanks for the reassurance. I think I might just go ahead and order one.

 

My thing is with all the surgeries I really don't have a waist right now and probably won't until the end of the year. They said with the nerves that got cut and the incisions being so big it takes time to come back from it. I can't even get on the exercising because the shortness of breath is so bad I can do 5 minutes on the treadmill and can barely breathe. The waist size like @Wafflesmom said is what really worried me but what the heck. I think it's worth a try for the price they are.

Thanks! I love the colour too :) They are super pretty and perfect for the Mexico beach.

Just be careful when ordering because the waist really has no give, lots of room in the hips and legs and even the bust area wasn't too tight but the waist had no stretchy-ness to it, that's why I wanted to point out that I'm smaller in the waist, hourglass shape I guess so the medium was fine for me and hopefully my girls.

I finally got to try my dress on tonight. I HATE the pictures, and really hate having my picture taken. I had a long day today and am absolutely exhausted so the photos are even worse than they would normally be. Keep in mind that the back isn't properly and totally laced up. We were also no in a big room so the back of the dress wasn't properly "puffed" out. It's I think one of the big things that attracted me to the dress. But.... here it is on. Sadly I rushed out of here this morning and forgot the "later" dress (still haven't decided what I'm doing with it yet) so having that one on will have to wait for the weekend.

Aww thanks! My friend just grabbed my hair and pinned it so that we could get an idea of the veil length and she put it higher than I wanted but at least it gave me a general idea. We took yards and yards of crinoline out so it toned the dress down a lot!! Which is what I wanted but standing and standing while they pinned and in such a small space I was ready to pass out from the heat. I'm just hoping that being on an open air terrace in mexico makes it nowhere near as bad as it was last night.

 

Also - anyone have any tips on the best way to break in shoes????? Yikes!

@acw271011 It's a beautiful dress and I think you look fabulous in it!!! :) I love how the back has such nice detailing!


@deecol I love this dress! Every time I see a maxi now I have second thoughts about not going that route for my BM's.

@perianjay thank you!!

 

@deecol  I'm giving serious thought to a dress from the lulu's site. The prices are great and you can always wear a long dress over and over. Maxis are back in style now too!

@acw271011 I just read your comment about breaking in shoes. Try to wear them around the house if you can.
