Rated 4 out of 5 by Nixon Perfect summer gown
The best thing about this gown is the stunning, light-weight silk chiffon. It photographed so elegantly and shone in the sun!
At one fitting my sister picked up the bag and thought it was empty. I was getting married outdoors and so knew that I didn't want to be sweating inside a heavy, corseted traditional gown. The nadia provided the right amount of casual elegance while allowing my body to breathe.
My only complaint was the extra fabric in the corset. There's a little extra above the waistband that gave it a less-tailored look than I would have liked. A woman really wants to be sucked in and pushed up on her wedding day.
To combat that my seamstress sewed snaps into my bra at the top and bottom which attached to the dress. This made me feel more secure and held the dress in a little tighter around the rib cage. An easy $30 adjustment that made a world of difference.
Ran true to J Crew sizes. I originally ordered an 8 but had to exchange it for a 4.
Thanks J Crew!

I was married in this dress this past weekend and I can’t thank you enough for designing such a perfect item. It fit me perfectly in all the right places and flowed so beautifully when I walked. The material was just the right weight for a summer wedding. The design is so simple and yet so elegant that it can be adorned with accessories or shine on its own with a simple pearl necklace (as I did!) Thank you again! I will absolutely be recommending the wedding line at J. Crew to all of my future brides!

Rated 2 out of 5 by lisaolivia08 thought this was the one!
After reading the reviews I thought this was "the one". Unfortunately, it is not very flattering. I'm a size 4 and if you don't have super slim hips, it flares out around the hip area leaving a large illusion. The bottom of the dress has a lot of layers, also causing the dress to be unflattering.

I got this dress for my vintage winery wedding this past September. I tried on several other dresses from Jcrew and this one was by far the most flattering dress for my body (5'3", 117lb, size 2#. The dress was very elegantly and perfectly romantic, the flowing skirt looked beautiful in pictures. I matched it with the jeweled belt as shown in the picture and that was the right thing to do. It added additional sparkle #bling) element to what could be too simple of a wedding dress for some. I would highly recommend the dress to anyone looking for very reasonably priced and romantic wedding dress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Samantha Elegant, Classic, & Casual
I got married this past June and really wanted a dress that I could dance in, was lightweight, casual enough for our lakeside wedding, and elegant to shine in the ballroom when need be. The Nadia dress was it! I loved this dress way too much -- it was perfect for me! I couldn't picture myself in anything else on my wedding day. I did minimal alterations to it; my seamstress added a little tulle to the skirt and sewed on my Swarovski belt (also a J.Crew purchase) so I didn't have to keep tying it. My only complaint was what another reviewer mentioned, in that there is a little extra fabric in the bodice. After about 5 hours it started sagging just a bit and lost it's shape. I didn't notice it until the end of the night and in photos when I looked, but it wouldn't deter me from purchasing again. The fabric is delicate so be careful. My dad stepped on my dress when we were dancing & I have a tear in it on the one side. In my opinion it's just the sign of a good night :) Thank you, J.Crew!
