I got this dress for my sister's wedding! I was having such a hard time looking for a classy dress that had a conservative look and that wouldn't take the spotlight away from my sister's big day and so, when I found this dress, it literally was like love at first sight!! Being the maid of honor and my sister's only bridemaid, this dress is totally appropriate for the mother of the bride or for the bridemaids as well. I got the pearl pink just like the photo shows and I think the dress in real life is more of a peachy color, but I would still recommend this dress. I got a size 12 and it fits perfect on me, which makes me really happy I don't have alter it. I weigh a little under 145 lbs and I'm like just under 5'4'', just to give you an idea, but if you go by measurements found on this page, they are really accurate because I had my mother measure me and we went by their guidelines and sure enough, the dress fits me perfect!
