Gypsy_Heart:  Even if it wasn’t fairly risque I still wouldn’t be a fan. I find the proportions on Pnina dresses to be pretty “off” and not very aesthetically appealing. I feel like she uses shock value in terms of sheer paneling rather than good construction and flattering cuts. See how the dress hangs off the model? There’s zero tailoring so your figure basically has to be model-esque to even attempt the look. And then she adds in these huge bust cups. See how the bottom of the cup is far below where the model’s breast actually stops? It dips down lower to accentuate the breast and then she adds in those between the cup cutouts which on a flat chested model give the illusion of cleavage but on a normal figured woman will accentuate the shoulders and rib cage width. 

Everyone’s just telling you about the “omg it’s revealing” and I figure if you like this that’s not a problem for you so I just wanted to point out the design aspects that I’m not particularly fond of. If you like this etheral sheer type style there are other designers that do it much better. You might like Claire Pettibone.

Even on the model, I don’t find it a flattering look, and if I were a guest at a wedding where the bride wore that, I would not be able to stop thinking about this image that went viral a few weeks ago.

When you decide to be unconventional, you have to be careful that you are not so completely unconventional that you create a distraction. That dress is very  distracting.

Horseradish:  lol lol lol @ “stuffed with tiny damned souls”

OP, I really dislike that dress. Not only is it super revealing, it’s not a flattering cut. With that said, if you do choose it, I will be really interested in recap photos to see how you pulled it off lol

I honestly thought this was some (Very fancy!) bridal lingerie.  Are we sure this is actually meant to be a gown?  I really thought it was lingerie/lounging on honeymoon with hubby wear.  

The only way I think I would wear something like this was if I was eloping with only a witness and my husband.  I can’t imagine wearing that in front of a group of people.  Not because I’m shy, but because I find it wildly inappropriate and more sexually distracting than needed for a wedding with many people.

I’m not a prude, but I would have a hard time looking at someone in that dress. It would feel awkward.

I think you should just go try on different styles of dresses. I got so caught up with one particular style that I ended up not liking on me. Different styles have will feel different on you, and that doesn’t come through on a model picture. Good luck!

Agree with everyone else – it looks like lingerie or some sort of sexy Snow Queen halloween costume.  I never understood the purpose of nude lining either – is it to look naked without actually being naked?  Whats the point?

I love sexy dresses and am all for lace, sheer panelling (in less intimate areas!), low backs etc.  If you like this style then try out Katie May (amazing backless dresses), Grace loves Lace, Nicole Miller, Amanda Wakeley, Selia Yang and the Love Marley collection by Watters.  They all have sexy styles far nicer than this.  These are 2 of my personal favourites –

Gypsy_Heart:  It’s not at all my style. I don’t like the way the cups are overly angled, and I don’t like the drapey arms, actually it reminds me of curtains my grandma had. That’s my honest opinion.
