Rated 5 out of 5 by amk14 Perfect fall wedding gown
From the moment I put this gown on, my mother and I knew this was the perfect dress for my North Carolina wedding later this fall. It fits like a dream and will look classic and elegant paired with a simple sash. I am 5'8' 130 lbs, and the size six needs absolutely no alterations whatsoever.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BeaBee Great retro styling for statuesque ladies!
Gorgeous but too large overall in a size 0 for 33", 26", 35" measurements. I'm also shorter, and while the open back detail is to die for, it gapped strangely outwards in a way that would definitely require some hardcore tailoring and possibly even restructuring. I also found that the slip was a bit larger than the dress, causing it to bunch and gather strangely. Love the columnar, retro glam look, though, and if you are taller and curvier, this dress will probably suit you well... but it would be wonderful if J.Crew offered more of its beautifully styled gowns in petite sizes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by NapaWedding15 Amazing quality and beautiful dress
I tried on many dresses and bought this dress as a back up but it turned out to be better quality and more beautiful then the dresses from the wedding shops in town. I would absolutely recommend the wedding dresses from J.Crew and their Wedding Specialists provide outstanding service!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MeganR Elegant, Simple Wedding Dress
I bought this dress to wear as my reception dress because I wanted something lighter to change into after our ceremony. Our wedding leans Art Deco/Old Hollywood glam and this dress fit the bill perfectly!
I have an hourglass shape (bigger chest and hips, small waist) and am borderline petite, but this dress fit surprisingly well off the rack in my usual size. In terms of how it looked on my body, it perfectly skimmed my curves and even downplayed my stomach, which is my trouble area. It will need alterations to be perfect, but most wedding dresses do.
As noted by another review, the dress appears white on the site. In person, it's cream/ivory, which I preferred and was hoping it would be.
I gave it four stars for quality because the stitching of the lining does show a bit, appearing slightly lumpy in places, but I believe that can be resolved with alterations and the right undergarments.
