Hi all! What are your opinions on this dress? I’ve been looking for something that’s not strapless and lightweight. A lot of dresses I’ve tried on I feel lost in (I’m 5’1), but this one has been the most promising so far.

I am not a super huge fan of the angle at which the embellishment on the front sits, but that’s something that I am sure could be fixed in alterations. Aside from that, I like it! It’s super flattering and not cookie-cutter.

I think it’s really pretty and looks FAB on you!

I like the lace embellishment, but I agree with pp that it would be better if it were not at an angle, especially on the back it just looks odd to me. Other than that I really like the dress.

I find it to be matronly.

I think it’s lovely and compliments your figure!

I also tried on this dress and it was a serious contender. I absolutely loved it while wearing it; it felt elegant and classy. But now when I go back and look at the pictures, I feel like it doesn’t look as great. It actually felt more like a red carpet awards show dress than a wedding dress. I love the lace sleeves and it is very flattering on you, but I think it depends on what look you are going for.

Absolutely love it. Classic and glamorous, and not the same dress I see over and over.

Looks very mature, elegant and timeless dress. I will say though it definitely looks like a wedding dress for an older women, so if you are under 28, keep in mind that you will want to look back and think the dress is age appropriate.
Also one of my wedding dresses is this satin material and I didn’t think about it when I bought it, but remember these shiny dresses with shiny satin fabric will look really shiny in pictures. Google some satin wedding gowns and see how they look in pictures. I don’t mind having my dress look shiny in pictures, but some brides have not liked the way it looked in pictures.:)

@lindyhop15: This is my dress and I love it! I can appreciate all the constructive comments above, but I must say…photos of this dress (especially the ones on the Enzoani model) really don’t do it justice. It is far more beautiful (and way less shiny) in person and the angled embellishments aren’t distracting at all when you are actually wearing it. That being said, I am a 43-year-old encore bride and I was purposefully looking for something that looked more “red carpet” and less bridal, so you may want to splurge on something more indulgent / sparkly if you are younger and can get away with something more grand!

Thanks for the replies, everyone! I am 28, but I just loved the simplicity and elegance of this dress when I had it on. I also feel that the photos don’t do it justice, which is making it difficult for me to decide if it’s the right one – when I look at the pictures, I feel the dress is so-so, but when I tried it on I absolutely loved it.

The material is lovely and I’m sure the dress felt great! To me, though, the whole effect is kind of “meh.” You have a fabulous figure and I’m sure you can find something which photographs better than this one and has a bit more elegance to it. Some of the conflicting lines on the front, and the drooping neckline bother me.
