A nice breezy summer wedding dress
Overall I'm pretty happy with the dress. Great material for a sticky summer wedding. I was hoping it would be a little more fitted through the waist, but I had to size up to accommodate my busty bits, so the rest of the dress wasn't as fitted. In the picture I'm wearing a push up.
The length looks short on the model but if you're not leggy this will probably hit a few inches north. I'm 5'5" and my lace hem hits 2-3" above the knee.
The waist doesn't hit at the natural waist, it's more of an empire cut bust. The hips and butt of the dress are a little flowy, which is forgiving for people with a pooch. If you want a sleek and sculpted look I'd get another dress.
Now about the bust. If the girls are well-endowed (larger banded C's or D's) would recommend you get your normal size and the size up so you can play with wearing a bra, wearing no bra, wearing a padded bra, etc. You could do this dress bra-less, but I had no problem with my push up bra showing either. There are even bra strap hooks built into the dress straps.
