The color of the dress is Marine, a David’s Bridal color. It is almost identical to the Vera Wang shade, Midnight (in the “front” photo).
The dress received many compliments the day of the wedding and it has lots of re-wear potential (the other bridesmaids have already re-worn theirs for other events), I’m just not a bow person (see back).
Important! The dress was bought as a size 4, but tailored down significantly, to roughly a size 2. This is why the tag size and street sizes are so different.
My measurements for reference
Bust: 34B (on the smaller side of that)
Dress measurements laying flat (double waist for accurate measurement; bust measurement ):
Length from waist to hemline of dress: 21″

The skirt of the dress has not been shortened or altered in any way.
Comes with a detachable satin belt in the same material as the dress. Present in photos.
Worn for six hours and dry-cleaned.
