JS Collections Floral Appliqué Chiffon Gown
Even more beautiful than the picture. Exactly what I wanted for my son's wedding! Thrilled that I was able to get this dress, as it was out of stock for quite some time. Thank you Nordstrom!
I am celebrating my 30th wedding anniversary soon. We are renewing our vows on a Caribbean beach. I am looking for a lighter weight, flowing gown to wear. I'm a size 14 that never wears a 16 and can sometime wear a 12, full bust, thick tummy, and almost 5'6". I ordered this in 14 and the fit was perfect. With high heels, I wouldn't have to hem.
This gown is ethereal, faery like. Light weight and flowing. Just what I wanted. The upper chest and upper back area are netting. I was afraid it would feel "scratchy" when wearing. It did not. Very comfortable. The rosettes are freeform and delicately sewn on. Just so pretty. None appeared to be missing from shipping or when I tried it on as others noted. Even though it really wouldn't be awful if some were to come off here or there, I would be careful not to be too rough while wearing. The area under the bustline is form fitting - not stretchy at all. It did fit me, but if I inhaled fully, it did tighten. So, be sure to measure and don't size down at all.
Unfortunately for me, I have heavy upper arms with some cellulite. This beautiful dress did not flatter me when I put it on. Although I do still wear sleeveless, I feel that the rosettes somehow highlighted my problem area instead of detracting from it.
If you have smooth arms, I would not hesitate in ordering this lovely gown. As other reviewers have pointed out, the color is a bit darker than it appears online. I have a fair skin tone, with natural blonde hair, and it was just a bit darker than my skin tone. I easily could have worn this color. If you are darker skinned, it will look lighter on you.
This dress is beautiful. The color is a little darker than is shows but it is still gorgeous.
It's very long and I will need to have it altered. I wish it came in petite. I would recommend this dress.
Not of this world!
This dress is beautiful. A little darker in color than how it appears online but it's gorgeous. I'm 5'10, 145 lbs, athletic build and this dress, size 6, fits me perfectly. Even with 3 inch heels though, the dress is very long - had to get it hemmed. But it's worth it. I'm wearing this to my daughter's wedding and my only problem? I hope I don't upstage her!
