Rated 5 out of 5 by freshpears Perfect backyard wedding dress
I'd been trying on dress after dress for several months with no luck, so I was thrilled when this was released as part of the new wedding collection. It's simple but fun, classic but modern--a great choice for my backyard wedding early this fall. I did have to size up to fit the waist, which has zero give, but that meant I had to take in the bust nearly two inches. But I'm more of a rectangle shape, so others may be fine with their normal size.

This was the perfect dress for my city hall wedding - I felt amazing and it held me in in all the right places without being uncomfortable for the whole day, even whilst carrying my heavy 10-month-old!
The shopping experience was amazing at the Manhattan 5th Ave branch of J Crew; I was so lucky that I was able to sneak into the wedding boutique on a Saturday morning as two people who had booked appointments didn't turn up. The assistants were so lovely and accommodating even though I was just a 'walk in'. After choosing the dress I was measured as a size 2 but that had sold out, so they ordered me a size 0 instead and I'm glad they did (I'm 5'4"; 115lbs). It's a dress that needs to be snug to look right, and it looked fantastic on the day.
All in all this dress made my day: the silk chiffon is beautiful and made me feel like a princess and the side swoop looks wonderful in all the photos. Can't recommend both the dress and J Crew for their wonderful staff highly enough.
