I´m in love with this dress and I want to try it, but here in the Czech Republic is no store that has it, one store offered me to order it but I have to buy it even before I try it on! Which i want to be sure that it is good on my body etc. I´m pale brunette and I was thinking of coffee color, the wedding is in May on Santorini island. What would you advise me to do? I have one dress in reservation only for this week, it is Jesus Peiro shorter creme dress.
Is anyone selling their dress?

Its a beautiful dress. The coffee is very beautiful color too. I don’t think you could go wrong with it.

@Simona: i haven’t seen the JA dress in person yet, but i also LOVE it! i think the coffee color especially would be nice and don’t think there’d be an issue with your skintone/hair color. :]

I tried on the Justin Alexander the other day… it looked OK on me but is a very extreme style, so it really has to be what you’re looking for. I think most people who love it know they will love it when they try it on. I knew just looking at it that it was too pouffy for what I wanted and the neckline is too flat (I have very muscular shoulders and arms and sweetheart necklines look WAY better with that).

I say, go for it. If you think you’ll like it, you probably will. You can have it altered if needed. And honestly, it’s going like hotcakes on sites like PreOwnedWeddingDresses.com (have you checked there?). So you can always sell later if you totally hate it. Maybe try on another, similarly full tea-length gown if you’re worried about it – just to see if the silhouette is okay.

I tried on the longer version of the dress (http://www.justinalexanderbridal.com/en_us/justin-alexander/8483.html) last week and LOVED it. I have a very hourglass shape with fairly large breasts, and it really brought out my figure. It made my waist look tiny. If you have a similar body type, I would recommend it!

I tried the longer version too. Here are three pics since I don’t know your body type and hopefully they will help! I LOVED the way this dress made me feel, and if I could not have gotten the JA dress I did want, this was my next choice.
Also to mention, my bust is NOT that large and it still looked really great. I think this could flatter any figure.

if you’re not afraid of a big dress, I say go for it. I was surprised at how much I felt like a cupcake in the dress. It’s adorable for sure, just wasn’t my dress. Good luck!

Thank you so much! I decided not to buy it without a try on. So I bought the Jesus Peiro one, with great discount, and I love it. It needs to undergo some changes, though.
I kind of envy you all your location, here, in teh Czech R., finding a wedding dress is a nightmare.
Now onto my next challenge – shoes!

I have the coffe/ivory Justin Alexander if any one is interested. It is so beautiful in person! I can’t wait to wear it. As it was over my budget, I am willing to sell some time after May 7 2011. It is a size 10, but I normally wear a 6-8 in clothes and it fit perfect… I just took in the waist a bit, but it can be let out, no fabric was cut away. [email protected]

Admiring this dress, Justin Alexander 8465 and want to wear it. Is anyone selling / or does anyone know where to buy? I am interested in any of the 2 colors and I am open to buying a size 4, 6 or 8 or possib a 10 but not smaller because I am aware that they run small.
