Rated 5 out of 5 by Kitty Stunning gown, beautiful fabric
I never expected to wear a ball gown for my wedding, but I ordered this on a whim while ordering another dress I had my eye on, and it was absolutely stunning. The silk fabric glows. The simplicity of the design is very classic and elegant, and it makes the ball gown cut feel more down-to-earth. Oh, and there are pockets! Sizing: I am between a size 0 and 2, and the 0 ended up being the right size for me. I'm getting it hemmed a couple inches as I'll be wearing low heels, and am getting the straps taken in a little bit to bring the neckline up about 1/2 inch, but it fit quite well right out of the box and felt like it was made for me. For reference, I am 5'7, 125 lbs, A cup.

I wore this dress for my outdoor wedding last month and it was absolutely stunning. The quality of the craftsmanship and fabric make the dress look far more expensive than it is. The dress buttons all the way up the back, and it is such a sweet detail. For reference, I am a little over 5' 7", a B cup and almost always a 4 in J crew, and this dress fit me out of the box. I only had to have it hemmed.

I knew I wanted simple and elegant for my Gulf Coast beach wedding and this dress fit the bill perfectly. J.Crew quality and sizing (only required hemming) was excellent and the comfort and ease of wear was superb. So happy with this dress!

I've had my eye on this dress since JCrew began producing it. The dress is beautiful! The ivory is the perfect shade of off-white--and the fabric is wonderfully textured with a slight sheen. There are several fluffy layers of tulle beneath the dress--which I have found a little difficult not to step on, but nothing that I can't work with. It has bra keeps which are handy, and you honestly can get away with normal undergarments, though I think I'll have cups sewn in. The dress is lovely as-is, or it looks great accented with a bridal belt or sash. For me, the dress fit straight from the box--and wow! JCrew really packaged this dress beautifully! For reference, I'm almost 5'9", 125-130 lbs, 30C, and the 0 fit really well--I'm still trying to decide if I'll need to have it hemmed while wearing a 2 inch heel.

Although this is not the dress I ultimately selected, I just had to share how beautiful this gown is. The fabric screams bridal and the fit is flawless. And if covered buttons make you swoon, this dress is calling your name. The neckline might be problematic if you are particularly busty and want a conservative look.
