This dress is AMAZING! I fell in love with it when I bought it and had to resist showing my husband this comfortable, beautiful dress. The lace is beautiful, it almost looks like aspen leaves. I. LOVE. THIS. LACE. I tried to get pics of it close up for the listing, but the original photo from Davids Bridal shows it better than my photos. I had nothing but compliments on the material, shape, fit. There is a diagonal seam that is just lovely and adds something different to a standard lace dress!!
I am 5'8.5 and wore 1inch cowboy boots, the dress fell perfectly to the ground at this 5'9+ height not hemmed.
Originally, the dress was 599.99-649.99, but I have since seen it on sale at David's Bridal for $449.99-499.99. http://www.davidsbridal.com/Product_strapless-lace-gown-with-ribbon-detail-wg3381
I had the dress dry cleaned and it has been in my (smoke-free home) closet sealed in 2 bags (original Davids Bridal bag + cleaner bag). The only time it has been unzipped was to snag the photo of the pinned bra.
I had a bra pinned into the inside of the dress. (game. changer.) This makes it SO easy to feel secure and avoid the dreaded strapless-raise-your-arms problem. The bra can be easily removed if needed.
The dress was also tapered in at the sides to give my straight body a bit more shape (~1/2inch from the original size 8).
