I ordered this dress for a submarine birthday ball, as my husband is a submariner with the navy, and it was absolutely GORGEOUS! It was a little uncomfortable towards the end of the evening, as the boning in the abdomen became a little bent, but that was my own fault for ordering a size smaller than I should have. The train was a little longer than I had originally thought, but I managed just fine with that and was complimented on the gown all night. It turned out to be absolutely stunning. So happy!! I will be ordering another dress for the ball next year from you all!!
