I ended up going with the sister dress Pronovias The White One 411 in ivory, but I tried on the Fanal optical white and it was a bit tooo white for my liking.  I am filipino, so I’m a bit tanned.  It was just to stark against my skin.  I wasn’t allowed to take pictures but here’s one I found on the internet and a few more for comparison:

you’re welcome!

nope, not in nyc, but in the washington dc area….and I wasn’t even supposed to try it on!   the gals at the salon didn’t have a sample anymore(they had sold it), but someone had ordered it and it had just come in, in optical wite.  so they sneakily let me try it on for a few minutes:)

good luck finding it!  in reality, it’s just white.  i’m sure you’ll love it, in any color!

Honestly optical white just means white without any other tones. It’s beautiful in optical white IMO. But it also depends on whether you look better in cool or warm tones. Cool tones would go better with the optical white.

I know this is SUPER late… but I had the White One 411 (almost identical to the Fanal but with a shorter train) in white.  I didn’t have a chance to try it on in white before I purchased it, but I tried on another similar gown in white and decided to go with it over the ivory color.  I was really happy with how it turned out!  This is me with one of my bridesmaids- not sure why the photographer cut off our heads… but it works for posting on bee 🙂
