Beautiful Short Dress!
I just received this dress yesterday and its absolutely lovely in person. I'm usually a size 6, but the 4 fitted really well. It's a little large in the top half and I need to take it to a tailor to see if it can be adjusted. I didn't notice the weird gape that many others commented on.
The back is beautiful! And the length was just below the knee (I'm 5'8). Overall, very happy with it and just hope I can get it tailored without too much trouble...

I got married in this dress last night. I am 5'4", 118 pounds, and the size 2 fit like a glove. I was worried it was too snug - had it been even an inch smaller I would not have been able to breathe. I wanted to take it out but the tailor was not willing to even try, because she would have ruined the beautiful back. I did notice the buckling when I bent forward, but it wasn't too bad because the dress was so snug. I tried to stand up very straight all night. If it doesn't fit you perfectly it is not likely to work, sorry to say. The dress is not very forgiving and difficult to alter. I got lucky and it fit me well - I hope you all are as lucky because the dress is just beautiful, I got a ton of compliments on it all night.

The materials used in this dress are beautiful. The feel of the fabric is soft and dreamy. Even after consulting with a personal shopper, the size I ordered was still a bit large. This was aggravated by the fact that I'm petite. The length of the bodice was awkward on my body. And, despite my full bust, I, too noticed the strange collapsed spot in the draping of the dress which was noted by other reviewers.

Beautiful ceremony dress!
I bought this dress for just over a year in advance of my wedding ceremony and have no doubt it is the best around for what I am looking for. I am having a small ceremony with direct family members in my backyard and plan to wear this dress. I am a little flat chested, but this dress hides that while still looking wedding appropriate :) The back is absolutely stunning and the ribbon around the waist is flattering. The movement of the pleats is gorgeous when you walk. It's very comfortable too! I ended up showing my fiance the dress, and he loves it on me. Runs very true to size. I ordered two of the same size and one was of better quality than the other (one had the dent referred to below), but the other is a keeper. I can't wait to wear this dress!
