    Ew, hate them - trashy

    I love looking like a crystal cream puff! - classy

    Not my taste but I can see where others would like her gowns

    @kitzy: Holy smokes, I feel like those are wedding night outfits rather than ‘walk down the aisle in front of family, friends, and old Uncle Charlie’ gowns. Wowza. Some of her styles of gowns can be very gorgeous (see here) but those are entirely inappropriate for public, in my opinion.

    If they weren’t see-through, I would actually like a lot of her dresses. Overall, I think they’re gorgeous. That said, though, I can’t imagine my father seeing me in one, much less walking me down the aisle in it! To each her own, though!

    i don’t want to offend anyone. but i think 80% of them are disgusting.

    20% of them are really beautiful though.

    Yeah, I’m not a fan. See-through and covered in tacked on blingy bits that look like they were bedazzled on is just not my idea of sexy.

    I’m sure there are some dresses that are nicer, but overall I’d give the brand a thumbs down.

    Not all her dresses are trashy and see through.  I think they just show those ones on SYTTD for the shock factor.  I shopped at Kleinfelds, and many of her dresses are really gorgeous and respectable.  I didn’t try them on though since they were still over my budget.

    Her dresses usually have that stripper-fairy vibe.  I don’t think I’ve seen one yet I truly like.

    she’s a hit or miss for me. I don’t personally mind the see through bodices, whats the big deal, i don’t think they are slutty or trashy per say. whats wrong with a little flash and sexiness. Some of her dresses or stunning, the others no so much.

    I think this is lovely (minus the feather thing though) http://www.kleinfeldbridal.com/index.cfm?pid=52&item_id=12818&rowid=14&page=2

    I can’t believe how much they are to be honest. I’m not someone that likes alot of over the top details. like these…

    http://www.kleinfeldbridal.com/index.cfm?pid=52&item_id=12398&rowid=33&page=3 ,,,too over the top

    http://www.kleinfeldbridal.com/index.cfm?pid=52&item_id=12887&rowid=8&page=1 YUCK. I saw a bride try it on this weeks SYTTD and I don’t think it was flaterring. its just TOO much.. for ME.

    No designer is going to appeal to everyone but theres always a market for every type of taste.

    @Kemi82Justice of the Peace: I think her dresses are gorgeous! Yes, a few of them are a little to sexy and flashy.  I don’t consider them trashy. 

    Here are a few that I like even 2 with the see through bodice.  I can’t say that I wouldn’t put material under it to make it not see through, but I also can’t say that I would either…  From the pic it looks ok to me, but I would have to try it on and see.  If I liked it the way it was, I would leave it and wouldn’t care if other people thought it was trashy…  By The Way my venue is not a church. Unfortunately, Pnina Tornia is not in my budget, so no point in trying them on.  I am a Maggie Soterro bride.

    @AlishaKay, those first 2 dresses are gorgeous and not trashy in the least.

    Afterall, she is a European designer and Europeans are not as prudish as so many Americans are.

    Pnina’s dresses are pretty trashy for the most part.  If they aren’t see through trashy, then they are just ridiculously expensive and not that pretty.

    @Ember78: Thanks. I am the type of person that doesn’t care what others think if I like something.  🙂  I already fell in love with my dress & ofcourse never tried these because of the price tag.  Not sure if any would measure up to the dress I chose or not.  I don’t know until it is on.   There were a lot of dresses I loved in the picture, but when I had it on I felt nothing.  I knew as soon as I tried my dress on that it was the one!

    While I love sexy wedding dresses, I do find her dresses trashy, at least the ones I’ve seen.  And I also saw her on SYTTD and she was such a bitch.

    I think I’ve seen maybe one that I didn’t think was that bad. As for all of the other ones, if they’re not trashy, they’re hideous.
