It's nice looking, but it still tore.
For other brands of dresses, I can range from a 0 to a 2. I bought a 2 just to be safe. With the 2, the length doesn't reach my knees, but far below, close to my ankles, but that's no really a problem. The lace top though, is fairly big on me. Even with the adjusting of the straps, the sleeves fall easily. Also, after wearing it for the first time, part of the scalloped lace on the back ripped. It wasn't so noticeable, but then the rip got bigger and reached to the cami part of the dress. I won't bother fixing it until i'm done wearing it for the time being.
It's definitely worth a try with the sale price as compared to its original, but even then, i'm not completely happy with how much I paid for it. It's beautiful and reached my expectations for it, but I wish it could be worn longer.

prettier in person
The color is much more pleasant than the picture, a taupe brown or cafe au lait. The metallic accents on the lace are silver color, and look subtle and classy. Upon first inspection, the dress seems well-constructed.

Worth a try!
I ordered several of these dresses for my wedding party and the verdict is still out on how they fit all 7 ladies. For me (pictured), the dress seems to be true to normal dress size (2-4), and not necessarily true to the size guide that is listed online. Since the dress is so high waisted and flowing at the bottom, I probably could have gone with the 2. One of my curvier friends fit in her normal dress size as well (8), but since she has narrow shoulders, the lace was too loose on her up top. The dress is more of a taupe color, and is a much lighter color brown than in the photo. The lace detail with the scalloped edges and the silver lining is absolutely stunning. I also really like that it has adjustable shoulder straps and built in bra cups. The dress is very comfortable, except for the silver lining throughout the lace is a bit stiff/ itchy. The dress is worth the sale price, but not the original in my opinion. It is worth trying on, and if it doesn't work, you have 30 days from the delivery date to return. Cheers!

Pretty in the pictures. In reality the lace is flimsy, scratchy, and it fit strangely over the bodice creating ugly puckers. I returned it.
