Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed Poor quality
We bought four of these for my daughter's wedding though each had a different style top. On the day of the wedding, three of the four had zipper problems. Two of these ended with totally broken zippers and the bridesmaids having to be sewn into their dresses by hand one hour before the event. The two girls are sizes 2-4 so it wasn't that they were too large! I am livid....For the price and the J. Crew name and reputation this was unbelievable. We had to cut the girls out of their dresses at the end of the night. I will try to return these for a refund, but would NOT recommend this line of product to anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TajMaHustoles Two thumbs up from a "plus-sized" gal
Based on all of the other reviews, I was nervous about ordering this dress for fear there was no way "the girls" would ever fit into it (one shoulder or not). I'm a 40D, so I went with the size 20 - it's always easier to take material away :-) Much to my surprise, there's room to spare at the top! The material is a nice, light weight that should be perfect for a May beach wedding in Jamaica, and the styling is classic yet contemporary...exactly what you'd expect from J. Crew - and I love the option of trying before I buy without having to pay extra for being over a size 12.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JCShopper Size advice
I was really confused of what size to get after reading all the reviews. I am usually 2-4 in J Crew button-ups and blazers and 2/28 in pants and jeans. The measurements online said I need to get a size 6. I went to a bridal store and an associate took my measurements and advised I get it in the size 4. I just received the dress today and 4 fits me perfect! So if you are somewhat close to bust:35 inch/ 89 sm; waist: 27 inch/ 69 sm; hips: 37.5 inch/ 96sm - go for size 4.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dani Lovely dress, read measurement guidelines!
The fabric of this dress is gorgeous, but delicate. Be careful of the jewelry you choose so you don't snag the fine silk. I was surprised that the dusty shale color actually looked great on all of the bridesmaids. I thought it might make everyone look sick. We are all pretty pale, however.
As for the fit, read the measurement guide and ignore your normal dress size entirely. I wear a 34D/DD and my bust measurements told me to order the 12. The band at the rib cage fit perfectly, however the bust is a tad large, surprisingly. I couldn't zip the 10.
Make sure you have time to take it to the dry cleaners for a good professional steam! Although packaged well, the dress arrives a wrinkled mess.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anni Perfect Bridesmaid's Dress!
Fits perfectly and it's very flattering on many body types. Thank you to J. Crew for next day delivering the right color dress and style for me. I ordered the wrong dress and didn't know until the day before the wedding because I live out of town. The best customer service of any retail store, or anywhere for that matter, hands down. Y'all saved more than the bride's day! :)
