This dress is absolutely beautiful in person. I wish I had not considered the two previous reviews before purchasing this dress, I am usually a size 6 in most dresses, but I ordered the 8 since I read that the dress ran a little small. It does not run small, I would say that it runs a little large. Order your normal size. If you measure yourself correctly, you should have no problem, according to my measurements I should have ordered smaller than the fit guide implied. As for the trouble with the zipper, I had no problem zipping this dress and I did zip it myself while I had it on.

Beautiful and Stunning - Adore this dress!
I was sooo excited to get this dress. Once I saw it in person, the first thing I notice is the material is top quality - love the lace, the lining, the grosgrain ribbon accents - all beautiful! I was hoping that when I tired it on, it would fit me well. It was perfect and fits me like a glove! I am 5'9 and ordered a size 2 - my true size. Its not too short, hits just where the photo shows and the cut is great for me. Sometimes dresses are too big up top for me, but not this one. I don't need any tailoring. I cannot wait to wear this for my rehearsal. PERFECT dress for me!! Thank you!!

Should have listened
I should have paid attention to the other review on this dress. I was HOPING that I could fit into the 12 (as it's the largest size available) since I was able to fit into a 12 with the other 4 dresses I tried on. NOPE. It's too small, and it's going back. I was shocked that it actually fit me in the bust though... normally dresses are too small. This dress is made for someone without as many curves. LOVE LOVE this dress though. It was a beautiful ivory lace with a blush lining and covered up my large 36DD chest. Just wish it fit.

Pretty but issues with zipper
I loved this dress. It does run smaller than expected. I am typically an 8, ordered this in an 8 and it was much too small. Reordered in a 10 and it fit better but still somewhat snug around the waist. My big issue with this dress is the zipper. The ribbon around the waist makes that area thicker and the dress just does not zip up easily. I ordered a second dress to make sure it wasn't just a defect but the second dress had the same issue. It took my friend 15 minutes to work the zipper up and then took us an equal amount of time to get it down. I would be too worried that the zipper would break on the day of the wedding so it is going back.
