Rated 5 out of 5 by trulyb Wonderful mother of the bride dress!
I'm so happy to have found this dress in the berry color to wear to my daughter's October wedding. It's extremely flattering, with the perfect neckline. The pleats release just above my little belly bulge. The side seams have pockets built in rather than pleats - yes, pockets for lipstick and a hankie! The fabric has a subtle luster, and the berry color flatters my complexion. I love that I can wear my usual underthings with no need for a strapless bra or any super confining shapewear. I took a size larger than usual, but that really depends on where you carry your weight. If you're on the busty side or don't have the slim waist of your youth, you may want to size up as I did, but if you carry more of your weight below your waist, this dress is likely to be TTS. (Aside: The fireworks necklace has a leather cord woven in that picks up the berry color of the dress and adds a festive note that fits perfectly in the V neckline.)

Rated 3 out of 5 by bshorty pretty, but not for petites
I like this dress, but the proportions are not suited for a short person. The skirt and bodice are too long. While the style is nice, all of the pleats and darts would make it difficult to alter. Usually I can size down when a petite isn't available, but even the smaller size is too big. I am 5'0 and normally wear a J. Crew P4 or P2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Joanie Perfect for summer wedding
I chose this dress from the bridesmaid collection for my son's wedding which was the on the first day of summer. I was looking for a dress that was not matronly as some MOB dresses are. The ceremony was on top of a upstate NY mountain.
Although I had to have the dress slightly altered, the size 6 was a little big on top, but that may just be my figure. I think the fit is pretty true to size. The sea mist color was perfect for this summer day.
I received many, many complements. One of the guests commented, that as far as MOB dresses go, "I knocked it out of the park!" High praise.
Love, love this dress and plan to wear it again, I especially love the pockets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by awiday Fantastic fit, fabric and style.
We bought several of these dresses for our daughter's wedding. They fit bridesmaids of varying heights and sizes extremely well. The fabric is sturdy but not overly heavy. The pockets were a great feature - appreciated for holding wedding rings! A classic look in beautiful colors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dresser Flattering dress, runs a little small
I loved the cut and style of this dress - a flattering v-neck, deep enough to be youthful but not too deep either, and a full skirt. Skirt doesn't look as full in the picture, but it definitely has body, which I loved. It was very pretty and feminine. I returned this mostly because the color wasn't right for the wedding I am in. I am normally a 6, but this was a little snug in the chest and waist and I would have had to size up to an 8, which wouldn't have fit that great either and would have been too big.
