Rated 5 out of 5Â by CMMM beautiful, but runs small (think European sizing)
This dress is stunning in person. The blue color is a bit brighter than the photo (not quite a dark Navy like in the photo). Despite the beading, it feels soft and not overly structured. I am 5'6 and ~118 lbs (and a 34B). I ordered the size 2 and it was definitely a bit small (didn't zip up all the way). I sent it back and have ordered the size 4 instead. The sizing is definitely more similar to what you would expect from European (rather than American) shops.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer So Stunning- but Tricky
This dress is even prettier in person.. The beading and detail is totally stunning.
...However, this is definitely a delicate item. I have a feeling I'm going to be afraid of snagging something the entire time I wear it, but that's the price one pays for a really intricate effect I suppose.
Sizing is very complicated, I've found at least. I'm 5'6, 115-120 lbs, and a size 34C. I still can't tell if the size 4 is perfect or if the top portion is cutting into my back. I have an extremely thin frame with a bit of a disproportionate bust. The dress is not very forgiving in that respect. Also, if I gain 5lbs, I fear I'll have to size up.
When in doubt, size up.
Worth the price overall though. I'm honestly probably just going to keep 2 sizes/colors.

I bought this dress for my senior prom and it was perfect! I am 5'5, weigh 108 pounds, and am a 32D and I usually wear a size 0. However Needle and Thread clothes tend to run on the smaller size so I sized up and got a 2, which fit perfectly (I later tried on a 0 and I was unable to zip it). The top of the dress has beautiful sequins that are shiny but not tacky, and the skirt of the dress has the perfect amount of tulle to give the dress volume without making it too poofy. One major perk of the dress was that even though I am a D, I didn't need to wear a bra with it because the top was thick and gave enough support. The color is also a perfect pale, blush pink, although in pictures it comes out slightly lighter. This dress was just exactly what I was looking for - classy, feminine, and comfortable.
Side note - I paired the dress with BHLDN's Petite Flora Hairpins, which were beautiful and went perfectly with the dress. If you are looking for a hair accessory for this dress I highly recommend getting them!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer Love this dress!
I am petite, and I wear petite sizes, but this size 4 fit me beautifully. I am 5 feet tall, larger in the bust and hips but smaller in the waist. The length on me brought the skirt to a midi length (which I actually loved) and the top fit snug (again, I measure larger in the bust and hips...)
If you are worried about tightness (and your bust visibility), size-up, but I loved the snug fit on me.
I would highly recommend this dress, it fits so well, is so comfortable and elegant, it also photographs beautifully. The only thing worth noting is the tightness of fit, and the colour is not exactly as shown in pictures (I have the dusty pink, it's very very light, not as rich as it appears in pictures).
