It’s just missing the pointed boobie cups or it would be the perfect 80’s Madonna dress!  

Sorry, it’s waaaaaay not my style.  I’m not a fan of the see through corsets at ALL.

I don’t think its shocking – meh……

Add me to the list of people who would be embarrassed for the bride wearing this, unless she is looking to grab an MTV reality show. Then I would be doubly embarrassed.

95% of people just can’t pull off the “see-thru clothes in public” look well.

@Zaria:Agreed I love it I actually considered it before I decided I wanted to go more formal. I thinmk it’s perfect for an outdoor wedding on a younger bride who has the body for it. But then again I am not traditional. LOVE it!

I really don’t like it either.  I think the main reason I don’t like it is the corset and that it is see through.  That just doesn’t say wedding to me.  But, even if you made the bodice not see through I still would not like the dress – just too much going on for me.  I think I would look back at this dress in 10 years and say ‘what was I thinking’.  Your eye is drawn so many different places you are never actually looking at the bride.  This dress wears the bride insteadc of the other way around. 
Also – the short length doesn’t bother me (as long as it isn’t mini skirt short).

It is too shocking?  ..nah nothing is too shocking anymore.

Is it a pretty wedding dress… (IMHO) No.

It is however, a pretty party dress, I would wear it at new years eve party or at an 80’s party with hot pink and black pearl accessories and hot pink shoes.

I do like the idea of something offbeat for a wedding that is just too offbeat.

I think Pnina Tornai makes a lot of beautiful, elegant, special dresses.  This isn’t one of them.  It’s a hot mess.  The bottom looks like someone just sewed bunches of fabric together haphazardly and the see-through corset with beading looks really showgirl-esque.  For most weddings, this dress just shows way too much for comfort.  Will you grandmother and Future Mother-In-Law be there?  What will they think?

If you have the budget, then consider another Pnina Tornai dress.  I almost bought one.  The fabrics are amazing and the built-in corsets are divine.  The internal structure in general is fantastic.  A lot of the styles are unique and unlike anything else on the market atm.  But consider something that’s less revealing and a little less busy if you’re having anything remotely resembling a traditional wedding.  Imo.

Also, if you only have four months till your wedding, you need to start considering buying samples or dresses that can be rushed.  A lot of dresses, especially an intricate one with lots of hand-sewing, like a Pnina, won’t make it in time.

I do not care for the see-through corset.  It doesn’t say “wedding” to me.  It says “penthouse.”
