I purchased this dress for my son’s wedding and am so excited to wear it! Buying online was scary, and this experience exceeded every expectation I had! The quality is noticeable and impressive for the price. The lining stays where it needs to and flows with the dress beautifully. It is absolutely stunning, I feel like a princess wearing it! I am 5’6” and 160 pounds, and somewhat curvy/pear shaped. I had to order an XL because the L and M were out of stock. I was nervous it would be too big, but the dress fit is forgiving and it fits very comfortably. I wear a 36C bra and I could be double that size and the dress would still fit so there is a lot of flexibility in sizing. However, I will need to have it altered for length, because even if I wear 6 inch heels I would be tripping. It makes sense to sell it that way for those women who are taller, but keep that in mind if you are average height like me or shorter, it is going to need to be hemmed unless you are wearing ridiculously high platform shoes! It isn’t cut to look like it is supposed to be that long, like having a train, so it doesn’t look right in the front with 6ish inches bent on the floor. But if you are very tall you needn’t worry about it being too short! I had originally wanted to buy the Grace dress with the flutter sleeves, but it was out of stock in the champagne color. I was nervous about the Helen halter bodice being too revealing for MOG, but it is flattering and covers under my arm and is cut well around the arms and neck to show just the right amount of skin while being perfect for an outdoor garden summer wedding. Even when I bend over or turn to the side, it stays where it needs to and I am extremely pleased I went with this style - no regrets! I was SO pleasantly surprised with the fabric and the colors of the sequins - the feel is soft and comfortable and yet amazingly elegant! I wore the dress around the house for several hours to see if I felt any irritation with seams and it was as comfortable as wearing a favorite t-shirt! I am hyper sensitive to that so if you are worried about sensory issues I hope this will ease your mind. Also, the fabric is resilient to snags and wrinkling. I deliberately walked by things that it might catch on and moved my arms while walking to see if anything would happen and the fabric was not prone to easily snag. I also sat on the couch, and then laid down to watch a movie and when I got up the dress and the lining looked fine. I have no worries wearing this all day and through the evening at my son’s wedding and remaining elegant the whole time - I have been disappointed in the past with the wrinkly fabric from some dresses costing double and triple what this dress did so bravo BB with your fabric choice!
I loved that the dress came in the zip bag. Can use for future things.
This dress is gorgeous but it was too big so I did return it (I ordered a Large: I am 5’4”, 150 lb and a 36DD, have opted for a different dress only because this dress was not in stock in medium.
The Grace sparkle gown was out of stock when I needed to order for my bridesmaids. We went with one girl in the Grace and 2 others in the Helen. Colors matched and everyone looked so good! Great for all body types, but you might need to hem if you're shorter 5'5"
Dress is cute and shipping was fast!
