Tadashi Shoji Lace & Chiffon Gown
My more "casual" wedding dress
I'll be wearing three dresses on my day (Chinese tradition) and this is the evening gown part. I love, love, love this dress. It ran too big for me - I usually wear a 10 and I got an 8. I'm a true hourglass (bust matches hips minus 10" to the waist) and this dress makes me feel more modest (since the lace goes up higher). With such a curvy figure like mine, this especially important since I'll be in front of so many traditional elders, but I still feel so sexy in it bc it's see-through. At first I thought the sides were see-through as well but there's actually beige paneling there (blends completely with the dress) and just the back is truly the illusion dress style. I have a tattoo on my shoulder so this was perfect to help disguise so more of the tattoo makeup. The one teeny, tiny qualm I have is that it bunches slightly at the waist bc of the paneling - not sure how noticeable it is (the bridesmaid will have to tell me) Otherwise, perfect, lovely, classy, AMAZING. I can't wait.
Prettier in person!
Ordered this for my destination wedding in Hawaii. Beautiful detailing that doesn't show up well on the website photos. I usually wear a size 6 in clothing and the size 4 fit pretty well, so I would agree with the suggestion to order one size down.
I ordered this for my wedding, and it's a gorgeous, well-made gown perfect for a wedding... just not mine. I felt it made me look a little old, and the sizing is definitely off. I sized down two sizes, and it was still too big. I'm 5'11" and usually get 35" inseam pants, and this dress was too long for me (though it was big). I'm 155 pounds with a very straight figure - this dress would look better on someone with a more hourglass figure.
I purchased this dress for my Hawaii destination wedding after trying on what seemed like 1,000 dresses. This dress is absolutely perfect. It is soft, flowly, and very romantic. It runs only slightly large. (I wear a 4 and I ordered a 6 and it fit perfect - no alternatives needed). The illusion neckline is gorgeous and looks like coral which is perfect for my beach wedding. This dress is very modest which is what I wanted.
The kick train is just the right length to not feel ridiculous on the beach. YOU WILL LOVE THIS GOWN. It came exquisitely packaged. Love it. Thank you Nordstrom!
