Violetta Ivory Satin Bridal Dress
I bought this dress for my wedding next Spring. I was looking for a beautiful simple dress. This dress is perfect for me. If you are like me and looking for something that will make you look slimmer and is very elegant without being too fussy then this is the dress for you.
The only downside for me is that I will have to have it taken up because it's too long, but being 5ft 3 I expected that with any dress. I went up a size as other reviewers have advised and it fits well.
The price was excellent, and I managed to get it in the sale which was even better. I can't believe that I have a beautiful dress for the money. It just goes to show that you do not need to overspend to have a lovely dress.
One very happy customer!! :-)

Lightweight soft material. Feels lovely on.
Zip did do up with help but is quite tight, though this doesn't bother me as I'm having a lace up back put in.
I'm 5,6" and with heels dress is perfect length, still touching floor.
Saved me so much money as bridal shops are overpriced.

Very thin material
Very disappointed with this dress and have returned for a full refund. Having read the reviews and looked at the video/pictures I was excited to think I had found my ideal dress at a bargain price but was very disappointed when it arrived. It felt more like a nightdress than a wedding dress! Extremely thin material which was very see through at the back - no matter what underwear I wore it was clearly visible through the dress even with an underskirt on. The plus points were that it was a very flattering style and I would say true to size - such a shame it was substandard in quality otherwise I would have been made up! great service from BHS though and would certainly use again.

Broken Zip BEWARE
Loved this dress. I ordered the dress 2 sizes larger than my usual size as I am quite busty. When it arrived it was a great fit and very flattering for the fuller figure.
I lost a little bit extra weight prior to my wedding but the dress fitted well. The only thing was my bridesmaid had to lift it up a few times.
I had read previously that the zip could break but really didn't think anything of it aside from having a look at the zip on arrival and it seemed pretty sturdy to me.
However I sat down and the zip went. Completely. Unfixable. I had to leave my own wedding early with a cardigan that someone lent me over my shoulders to hide the safety pins that kept my modesty in check.
I would hate for this to happen to any other bride. So I would say avoid this dress at all costs. Or if you are going to buy it then have a backup plan ready just in case it happens to you.
