I can see why you like it, the design is different from anything I’ve seen – and I understand that, as most brides, you want to be unique. However, I think something with more support around the waist and bust, and also from slightly thicker, higher quality material would look much better on you. 

The back is gorgeous, as many have said, the front is a bit too sexy and bold for my taste. Have you considered anything from Galia Lahav? I’m not sure what your budget is, but she has some awesome, quite sexy and bold dresses. I’m posting a few here.

calibee331:  Honestly if you love the dress, rock the hell out of it. I think the bright white looks gorgeous against your skin. 

The only thing that bugs me is how clearly the two seams in the front and the seam above the bustle stand out–the fabric looks really thin and unforgiving, and I’m not sure how a seamstress could fix that.

I have to agree with the other posters. This dress is not doing your figure any favors, plus I feel it’s not appropriate for a wedding. Wedding night, maybe, but not a wedding. Sorry.

The mesh is not the right color for your skin. The butt ruching is just not flattering, on anyone, really, but it doesn’t fit your shape right, and it makes your butt look flat and very long. And then the train looks like you’re pooping tulle out. Very bad design all around.

Clearly you need more support and shaping in the front, and I’m afraid with all the see through panels you won’t be able to accomplish that.

The straps look cheaply made, especially because of the netting. I’m sure this dress is costing a fortune, but the quality of the materials looks cheap.

This is the bra I got for my dress… It keeps all in place and allows for a plunge but it would show at back which is why a different back or ads in might be good.

Welllll, I didn’t think there could be a dress the bees hated more than mine and I didn’t think their comments could get any worse than they did about my dress, but once again, I was proven very wrong.

im sorry that you are essentially being body shamed for your choice. as one bee put it, this dress is for someone who is 5’10 and 100 lbs….well, id love to see what all these other bees look like in their dresses. in fact, i never really run into any posts about dresses because not every bee is brave enough to post pics of themselves. i think there is an acceptable way of stating your opinion, whether you agree or not , and its called tact. something i see lacking in this post. so sorry and i hope you wear whatever makes YOU feel beautiful.

calibee331:  What are you planning to do for a bra? the completely backless design worries me, as you will need support for your girls. Also, it is sheer. What are you planning to wear under it? The concern here is that any type of foundation garment is going to be seen (like around your waist or whatever) from the back.

I think this style might be ok for someone who doesn’t need a bra generally. I’ve seen it done well. This dress is not doing anything well. If you love it, rock it, but I would reconsider, purely from a practical standpoint.
