Rated 3 out of 5 by Victoria Review of Clara Bridesmaids Dress
I wish I could give this dress 2.5 stars.
-The Cabernet color is beautiful
-Runs true to size
-Order process from the wedding dept at J.Crew was easy/great
-Elegant but still some what casual
Over all aesthetics of this dress are great.
-CAUTION: This dress causes extreme chaffing. By the end of the night all of the bridesmaids had chaffing on the neckline, armpits, and under arms which was extremely painful. It caused red marks all over our upper body.
I am half and half on whether I would recommend this dress or not. It's beautiful but it will hurt you by the time you're done wearing it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Madge nightmare in sizing
this whole experience of trying to order a bridesmaid dress that fits has been a nightmare- I spoke with someone on the phone who was helpful but the sizing between different styles of silk chiffon dresses has been so irregular that I've already had 5 dresses home and in different incarnations of petite/ regular, different sizes, and now the sales are over so I think I'm stuck with the Clara :( Its such a pretty dress I just wish it weren't so high on the neck.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Deanna Nice dress for wedding
The color "dark cove" is as expected and seen in the sample photos. Packaging was excellent and there were no structural abnormalities upon receipt. Skirt was wrinkled and will need to be steamed, so allow time for that if ordering for an event. I ordered a size P-4, which is actually on the small size for my measurements, as multiple reviews state that is runs "slightly small" to size. It actually fits me very well, hence why I said it runs "slightly large". Online size charts lists a P-4 with a Bust of 33.5 in and Waist of 26 in. My measurements are Bust of 35in, under-bust of 29in, and waist of 26.5in. This is measuring without a bra, and the dress fit actually leaves enough room to wear a NuBra of some sort (although the ruffles make going bra-less reasonable), which makes me say it runs slightly large. I'm 5'4" and dress lands just above knees. One downside is a seam on the front (?!) of the skirt, but is not easily noticeable with the pleats. Overall, good find and purchase.

I attended a friend's wedding this July & I purchased the silk chiffon Clara dress in yellow. I got compliments on my dress all night long; from guests, the bridal party & the bride. I love the styling of the dress it is a perfect summer occasion dress.

My sister loved this dress for her wedding. I was the maid of honor and the 3 bridesmaids each wore a beautiful chiffon dress from J. Crew. All different but all gorgeous! The bride was very happy!
