LOL, my white gown just came out of the bathtub!! White, but the bodice is stoned in a blue diamond pattern, so not all white...I have owned this gown for years and still love it... Whew, was pretty nervous washing this gown yet there were only 3 stones on the bottom of the bathtub... Who can say what the best color is. I think you have to consider your skin tones. What works for one girl will not for the next. For me with dark hair and medium to dark skin tones white work for me..... Yet recently I was watching one of my fav standard pros in a incredible white dress but with her blond hair and very and light skin tones she seemed to disappear on the floor.
