Has anyone tried on the Wtoo Lapis?

I'm desperately trying to find pics of a real bride in this dress. I know I like this silhouette on me but this one is in the fall 2017 line and only available at trunk shows. I'm considering buying it without ever trying it on (which seems crazy?) I'm 5'5" and worried the torso will be too long on me as opposed to the model

    I'd be apprehensive about buying it without even trying it on or knowing it fits you in some way.. is there a similar style to this dress that you could try on and get an idea?

    I'm definitely apprehensive but I know I like this silhouette on me in general...this is a different dress but same silhouette

    I didn't try on that particular dress, but I just love wtoo and waters gowns! Obviously I'm sure you looked at the size guide. At the boutique where I got my watters gown they had a more detailed size chart than the one that the watters/wtoo website has. The size guide in the boutique included the length of the dress so that it included the "hem to hollow" measurement. That way you could tell if you should size up if you're really tall, etc, so it would be long enough. Do you know of any boutiques near that you that are carrying watters? It may be worth a short seeing if they have a similar size guide to the boutique that I went to, it was very helpful to see how long you can expect it to be. Good luck!

    (and you're right, the silhouette looks beautiful on you Smiley smile)

    I have! I purchased it for my wedding in November. I had three other appointments before finally being able to try it on. I had to wait for a store in Atlanta to get the sample in and I'm glad I waited!

    Also, I'm only 5'0" tall and I didn't feel like the torso was too long. It still looked nice to me.

    Also following this thread! I haven't even been able to find a picture of an actual bride wearing it either. I cant find this dress anywhere in the Midwest to try on!! I'm dying to see it in person and also may just take the leap and order it!

    So, I did take the leap and ordered it without ever trying it on. I'm so in love with it. It SHOULD be at a bridal store in Dublin, Ohio the first weekend in May. They told me they wouldn't know for sure until the week before. I feel good about this risk...that dress is dreamy!

    Hi Laura...shoot, I THINK it was a W Too gown? My consultant was helping me find a similar silhouette since the dress I wanted was not available. Sorry I can't help much more!

    Hi all! I love the dress, I don't regret my purchase at all. It was pretty big on me so the day I picked it up i couldn't really get a good idea of how it will really look. However, I got fitted the following day to be altered and it felt a lot more real. In the picture I still have the excess material on the sides that the seamstress pinned, so it still looks slightly big. However, you get the idea! I'm due to go back on 6/16 and picking it up on 6/23. I'll share the final result Smiley smile

    Also, my dress is all Ivory.

    Hi Jana - I just ordered the same dress for my wedding! How did you like it on your big day? How did the champagne color photograph? I'm considering calling the shop and changing it to all ivory for the brightness in photos?

    Hi Annie! I didn't end up wearing this for my wedding. It was too tight in the back and I couldn't get it to look right the way the dress was cut. My favorite thing about it was the champagne coloring though - I LOVED how that photographs in other brides photos, but I can't speak to mine specifically. Congrats! You will look beautiful!!!
