Searching for a dress was not an easy experience for me. I had a limited budget and an indecisive nature. Being from New York, I decided to try some of the more famous shops like Kleinfelds and Pronovis, but I did not enjoy my experience at either place. So I decided to look into dresses online and off the rack.
I took a little road trip with my mom to Vows, outside of Boston, to continue our search. This dress was one of the last dresses I tried on and I loved it. I had a summer wedding and this dress was not too heavy or clingy. It showed my curves without making me feel inappropriate and made me still feel like myself, just a fancier version.
- Alterations: This dress came with a high lace neck, as can be seen in some of the model pictures. I had that removed and turned into 2 straps. The dress can be worn in this style, or strapless as I had the lace fully removed and then reattached. The straps pulled as I danced that night and had to be resown by one of my bridesmaids. I would suggest removing them and wearing the dress strapless, or having them shortened to remove the pulled part. I also had the dress taken in to fit my frame. I have an hourglass figure, and I am 5'8" , I wear a size 30/31 in JCrew and a 10 in gap.
