Rated 5 out of 5 by S444 Beautiful gown
Purchased this in the champagne color to wear as my wedding dress. It's perfect! It's so hard to find dresses that fit, but with a large range of sizes, and a petite length, this dress will work for pretty much anyone. It has an incredibly flattering shape, and the material is awesome. It definitely looks and feels like it costs as much as it does (worth the price). And it truly is true to size...I can't say how many times I've tried on dresses in "my" size and they've ended up fitting like a shapeless sack. Buy it in the size you normally wear! I will say that it's slightly see-through (if you wear the right underwear, it shouldn't be noticeable though), so I imagine that any of the other lighter colors will be too. Overall, great dress!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Katie October Bridesmaids Dress
My bridesmaids ordered this dress for my wedding in the Graphite color. The color is a true, beautiful grey. I disagree with other reviewers that have stated this is an unflattering gown. My bridesmaids are all very different body shapes and they genuinely LOVE this dress. I'm so happy that they're happy! The criss cross detail on the top of the dress is really nice.
I do think this dress runs small in the ribcage/bust area. For bustier ladies, I would suggest sizing up. I usually wear a size 6 in J. Crew dresses, but tried on my sister's size 8 and it fit me well (I am a 34DD).
The dress is VERY long, so expect to hem it. (I'm 5'7" and had several inches of length that would need to be removed.)
My 5'2" bridesmaid ordered a petite size in this dress and it was a really good choice for her! If you are 5'4" or shorter, I'd recommend trying a petite size.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Beestings Unflattering Long Gown
This dress looked good enough to order bases on the photos online. When I received the item and tried it on, I was disappointed that it is just not well designed. It is not cut well, and the band that wraps over the chest is not even connected to the rest of the dress, making it sit awkwardly on the chest and stomach. I thought it looked like a cross body almost "faux wrap dress" style, but it is not. The band of fabric just sort of hangs disconnectedly and ruins the flow and cohesion of the dress. This is the only item I have ever bought from J. Crew that I did not love.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ChristiLee Pretty Style but too SMALL & too LONG
The dress is pretty, but a very odd fit. I'm 5'3", with a 26" waist, 32" bust, and 36" hips. According to the J. Crew sizing chart, I would be a size 0 bust, 2 waist, and 4 hips, so just to be safe, I ordered all 3 sizes. I've typically fit size 0 and 2 J.Crew in the past, but I couldn't even zip the size 2! And the size 4 waist is pretty tight, but the bust is too big. On top of that, I ordered petite, but I still need to hem about 4 inches even after I wear 4" heels.

We purchased three of these gowns and we all think they are gorgeous. They do run fairly large in size so we all had to order a size smaller than we normally would in order for it to pull in at the waist (as per the model in the pictures). Once we did get the right size for all three of us they looked absolutely beautiful!!
