Rated 5 out of 5 by SuzieQ Simple and Elegant Gown
The style of this dress is no fuss. It is very chic and elegant. The fabric is soft and has a slight sheen. I think it will be comfortable to wear as well. However, it runs large throughout (compared to what the size chart indicates), in both the bust and the hips - very unlike the slim fit as pictured on the model. Perhaps it is cut large because it is a wedding gown and alterations are often expected (it would be helpful for J.Crew to indicate as such in the description). Other than the odd fit, I do recommend this style for the bride who appreciates a modern, minimalist look.

Lovely modern fit (but runs very large, I was a 00 and am usually a 2/4P). Alterations were minimal and the hem was easy to work with. Unique. The buttons add tremendous detail.

This is an absolutely beautiful and elegant dress. The fabric is beautiful and it's thick, so it runs over my curves instead of other fabrics that just cling to my curves (and cellulite) making me look worse. It is more of a typical wedding dress though, so don't confuse this sizing with other Jcrew stuff-it will definitely need to be tailored. It's incredibly long for me (I'm 5'3, though I am wearing flats at my wedding), and I will need to have the waistline tailored so it fits higher on me since I'm shorter.
Tailoring aside—which I'm ok with since it's such a cheap price for such an amazing dress—this is really a truly beautiful dress. I am so excited about wearing it on my wedding day!

Rated 4 out of 5 by LoriP Overall, a beautiful classic gown
Cons: The fit isnt the same as other JCrew clothing, but more like 1-2 sizes larger. I wished it was offered in petite sizes, but since it wasn't, I spent a lot of money to have it tailored. Even with tailoring, a flaw in the design couldn't be corrected. The flaw can be seen on the model in the image of the back of the gown where it pulls and creates wrinkles in the lower back area.
Pros: The silk is heavy and beautiful in person and the covered buttons and other details make it feel like excellent value for the money. I love the classic style that almost feels Audrey Hepburn and the lines are lovely. I am 5'2" 120 lbs, and much curvier than the model, but it was still very flattering. I believe it would be flattering for a number of body shapes. Additionally, the gown photographed well without the need for undergarments. The final pro is that I wore it comfortably for eight hours, which is a big plus on your wedding day.

This dress has a gorgeous ivory sheen to it. The photo doesn't really depict just how beautiful the fabric really is. It's a beautiful, simple and classic gown and it really reminds me of an Audrey Hepburn style dress. Pretty true to size in my opinion.
