I bought this dress for my big day and needless to say I could not have picked a better dress for my wedding! My husband and guests were floored at how well it fit. I will most definitely be buying from this site again in the future for other dresses for formal occasions. We also bought all of our bridesmaids dresses on here and they fit them perfectly as well. I loved it so much and I am so happy that I found this site and have recommended it to several friends already.

If you have actually purchased "The One" and also can't stop buying, get a second opinion. Show your 2nd and initial choices to various other new brides. Be sincere-- tell them you've already remortgaged your condominium for the initial dress, however you think this 2nd dress could be It. They'll be honest, too-- the initial one was much better. You'll feel comforted.

One especially well-loved bridal gown style is that of a long sleeve lace wedding dress. (We probably all remember how Kate Middleton perfected this iconic look!) Part of the appeal is that there are both aesthetic and practical reasons why you might consider choosing a lace wedding dress with long sleeves. Not only do the long sleeves provide arm coverage – which might be appreciated by some brides who don’t want to bare all – this style can also be more seasonally appropriate in colder months. A lace wedding dress with sleeves will also help display the beauty and intricacy of the lace pattern itself. Finally, lace long sleeves can embellish and elevate just about any wedding dress in unexpected ways for an unforgettable appearance. Just wait until you see your wedding photos!
This article is a liar. The reason that wedding sizes are different from regular American sizes isn’t that we’re “more athletic” or any such nonsense. We’re as sedentary as we’ve always been, if not more. Also, that’s stupid, because if we were more athletic, we’d have smaller waists, not bigger. The real reason the sizes are different is because of vanity sizing. (look it up.) Marilyn Monroe used to wear a size 12 on average, but her measurements would correspond to a modern-day size 6 (size 4 if you shop at the gap and other “generous” sizers). You see, over time, clothing manufacturers have assigned smaller and smaller numbers to the same measurements to try and flatter their customers. I remember when I was a teen I wore a women’s size 5/6. Now, 20 years later, I’m 20 lbs heavier, but I still wear a women’s 5/6. I haven’t gotten any more “athletic”, believe me. And I try on my size 5/6 pants from the 90s and I can’t even get them over my thighs, much less zip or button them.
Wedding gown companies often have a means of vanishing over night. No issue what the proprietor tells you, never ever make a purchase as huge as a wedding event gown without the chargeback defense of a credit scores card.

Of all the fabrics wedding dresses are made from, perhaps none is as classically romantic as lace. Lace wedding dresses are elegant, timeless, feminine – and, let’s face it, one of the most desirable wedding gown styles for brides-to-be. The popularity of lace wedding dresses probably has something to do with the fact that lace is an incredibly diverse fabric and can be used on all different types of wedding dresses. No matter what dress silhouette style you select – mermaid cut, A-line, ball gown, or sheath – there’s always a way to incorporate lace into your special day.

Begin your search by familiarizing yourself with the different styles and silhouettes of bridal gowns: A-line, mermaid, sheath and ball gown. For starters, an A-line style dress is fitted at the waist and flares outward toward the ground in the shape of an “A.” This style looks flattering on every body shape. The next option is the mermaid style. Sometimes called fit and flare, this style mimics the shape of a mermaid’s tail, as it’s tight at the top, tapering out at the knees down to the floor. As for the sheath style, it’s close-fitted to your body without any flares, which is an amazing option if you’re looking to show off your figure. Finally, the fourth option is the ball gown option, also known as a princess gown, which has a fitted waist and full skirt--ideal for all body shapes and sizes.
