Rated 5 out of 5 by asin fabulous
I absolutely loved this dress, and it was a perfect fit for my wedding this past June. I tried on in store in a normal size 8, but being 5'3, I ordered an 8P. When it arrived it was a much better fit from the 8, but of course, still long--nothing a little tailoring couldn't solve. I am so pleased I chose a J. Crew dress, the customer service was outstanding, their promotion for wedding dresses that comes out in spring was a lifesaver, and the overall quality of their products is simply awesome. Thank you J. Crew for such a wonderful wedding dress shopping experience! (for reference I am 5'3 130lbs).

Rated 5 out of 5 by anniedc Perfect Dress for an Elegant Beach Wedding
I got married at a hotel overlooking the beach a few weeks ago, and I wore the Heidi gown. When I saw it online, I knew it was exactly what I wanted, so I ordered my normal size 4 and waited for the dress to arrive. It needed to be shortened, but aside from that, the fit was perfect. My sisters and my mother were shocked I found a perfectly fitting dress online. My younger sister, who was my maid of honor, even mentioned in her toast during the reception that I am the only bride she knows who casually ordered her dress online. But J. Crew makes quality products. The dress was delivered quickly, neatly packaged with a very nice garment bag. I was an incredibly happy bride, in part because I felt beautiful in my dress. I would recommend J. Crew to any bride to be.

This is a beautiful wedding dress however the material is a little stiffer than some of the other styles. I also tried Beatriz size 12 which was soft and gorgeous, just not my available in a 14 which would have been perfect. I ordered Heidi in a 14 and it was way smaller in the chest area, didn't even come close to zipping up! I'm a 36D and a 14 should fit so don't try if you are busty!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Georgia Elegant, classic dress for my beach wedding
This dress is much more stunning in person than in the photos- the quality of the fabric and workmanship is gorgeous, and keeps this simple dress special. I chose this for my destination wedding in Hawaii and I couldn't be happier. I was worried about finding a dress that fit my curvy figure after reading the reviews, but it fit true to formal wear sizes for me. I have a 36D-DD chest and typically wear a North American street size 10, and I've found that a 12 is my formal wear size in other wedding dress brands. Based on the reviews I ordered a 12 and a 14 and even though my chest measurement is 40.5" while my waist is about 30" the 12 fits beautifully and I don't think any tailoring will be necessary other than hemming the super long skirt. I was worried about bulging in the back and armpit area but it fits nicely. I love the beautiful flowing skirt and knowing that I can comfortably eat, sit and dance at my wedding without being sucked into any restrictive undergarments!

After eying this dress for a few weeks, I bought it for my tiny backyard wedding this June. It fit exactly right without alterations or hemming. I stuck to the size charts--I'm 5'4", 125 pounds, 34C, and I got a petite 8, which I wore with three-inch heels. The silk fabric was light, drapey, and perfect in the soft breeze. I loved the classy Grecian look of the dress, and I didn't feel weighed down by it, which was important to me. So perfect.
