Old lady dress ?? 1

Old lady dress ?? 2

Okay so in one of the bridal groups I’m a part of on Facebook, a woman posted a very similar dress to mine (pictured above). More than a few people called it an old lady dress and now I’m having dress regret. Does anyone think this is too matronly ?

    This is absolutely beautiful! I love the simple satin. It's elegant and timeless. You look gorgeous! Sometimes, less is more.

    Wow, you are killing it in that gown! Your dress is so modern and elegant! I definitely wouldn’t call it matronly; it’s very chic with an edgy touch.

    I think your dress is gorgeous! I love the high neckline (I too had a high neckline!) and the back is stunning. Don't listen to other peoples opinions on anything regarding your wedding. It is about what makes you and your fiancé happy.

    Not at all! I think it’s a gorgeous dress. The high neckline is very modern & it lands wells on you. ESPECIALLY with the open back (which makes it not an “old lady” dress).

    The dress is elegant and definitely not an 'old lady' dress! Don't worry about what people think as long as you feel great in the dress.

    You look stunning! It’s timeless and very elegant. I love the low back detail and it fits you perfectly! Definitely not an old lady dress by any means!!

    Was this person 11? Did you ask what exactly was “old lady” about it?
    They won’t have an answer because they said it to be a jerk.

    Does not look like an old lady dress to me at all! It's a beautiful dress! It is form fitting, has a deep plunge line, halter top showing your shoulders, and open back. Not sure of many old ladies wear a dress like that! It looks great on you!

    It is very modern and chic. When I saw you and the dress, Blake Lively came to mind. She is beautiful and stylish, so I hope you find it a compliment!

    I wouldn't say it's an old lady dress. The only bride I knew who married at age 50 did wear a dress similar to that.

    But regardless, it looks flattering on you. You have nice arms. Not everyone could pull off this look.

    I wouldn’t worry about people calling it an “old lady dress”. Idk what kind of old ladies they know but I definitely have never seen an “old lady” in anything remotely close to this. Even if an old lady rocked It, it’s still a beautiful dress! I personally absolutely LOVE it!

    There is nothing remotely matronly about it. It's gorgeous! They're probably saying that because cleavage is not on full display.

    They may have said it was an “old lady” dress because it is very modest, even with the slit and mostly open back. I know as I’ve gotten older I’ve gotten much more modest in my dress. There is nothing wrong with dressing modestly.
    This dress is beautiful and looks lovely on you. I wouldn’t worry about the negative comments. If you love your dress and feel beautiful in that is what is most important.

    “Old lady” dress makes me think of something frumpy and dated — neither of which describe your dress. It’s lovely!

    If by "old lady dress" they mean sleek, sexy, mature, and classic and not the typical strapless, princess, tulle puffball, then yes. It's an old lady dress. The gall of some people! You look amazing.
