I choose diamond white b/c my complexion is warm and my skin on the fairish side. If you can try on a dress with both, take pics to compare.

I thought diamond white was like really really white. I wanted diamond white because my skin is really dark and my fiance loves white on me. But maybe I’m wrong in my thinking about white and diamond white. Do I have it backwards?

@kperry3: diamond white is slightly off white (I only know this b/c I tried on 2 dresses back to back and I looked washed out in the white, also I googled it to make sure :))

It really won’t make much of a difference. Order whatever feel right.

Yes, my dress is diamond white and it’s not as “white” as white lol  Wow that may sound a little confusing… My dress is satin and diamond white made it look beautiful!! I also have brown hair and tan skin.  I liked the diamond white better 😉  Good luck!

She told me at the store that to put it more simply, diamond white is between white and ivory.  It’s not quite as bright as white but not as dark/yellow as ivory.  I would have ordered diamond white instead of ivory but my dress only came in white or ivory and I’m too fair skinned to wear bright white and not look washed out.

I have brown skin and I went with a diamond white dress… Everyone that saw pics didn’t even know there was a difference between diamond white and white…I think its such a small difference nobody would really notice.

@hannarose: Oh then I was definitely going for white then, whichever is the whitest 🙂

I would go with diamond white. I to have tanned skin and darker hair and the diamond white looks great. Good luck on picking. Hope that helps.
