Really going for the princess look
I ordered this dress for a special event in Mint Mist size 8, and could not be more pleased. The dress has 2 layers of satin underneath 2 layers of tulle. The result is a truly dreamlike gown that flows and swishes effortlessly. The fit was as I expected; I ordered a 6 and an 8, and found the larger size to be a good fit without constricting upper body movement too much. However, the bust runs slightly larger than I expected. I'm 5'5", and the length is slightly long with flats, but perfect with 4-5" heels. I love how many different ways this dress can be worn; it is sure to be a unique dress that stands out from the crowd. Overall, I really do recommend this dress. It feels great, and looks about three times more expensive than the actual price!

I'm really not sure how this dress has gotten so many amazing reviews. The dress looks incomplete and cheap. You can literally see the tulle bunched up and sewn together on the bottom half. And the tulle is coarse and not at all soft.
The base of the dress is very comfortable but the rest is just a mess.
Note: I purchased this in ivory. Perhaps it's better in other colors.

Lovely for summer
I love Jenny Yoo gowns and was thrilled to find one here! This dress is beautifully made, versatile, and elegant. Unfortunately I am having a fall wedding and the material is VERY thin and light weight. It would be appropriate for an outdoor summer wedding. It also runs quite large. I'm 5'5, 140 lb, and the size 8 was too loose. I suggest ordering a size down.

What a deal, and what a dress. I was expecting this to be simple and beautiful, but I didn't expect it to be so detailed and ethereal.
My measurements are 35-28-36, and I got the 4. It zips up, but falls down, so I will have to get the bust and waist taken in a little. It is very long as other reviewers have noted, but that's to be expected as I'm 5'6".
The bodice is lovely with the tulle overlay; it really creates a nice shape and is one of those subtle details that photographs well. The tulle skirting floats very nicely and creates this sort of dreamy look. I was very impressed at how well the styleable pieces blend into the skirt- they're undetectable if you want to wear this as a strapless. It's so much fun trying out the different styles, though-- this dress can range from almost-grecian to bohemian to romantic and feminine depending on how you style it.
My only critique is that I wish it came with a how-to guide on creating all the looks possible; I chose this dress because it can be worn so many ways. I'll be looking on the site for how-tos and playing around with what I like best.
