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 5 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer Nice party dress
I ordered this dress to wear to future company holiday parties/formal occasions and after trying it on, it seems like it will be perfect for both. I was initially interested in it because I liked the style and color, and also because it's by the same designer (Needle & Thread) as my wedding dress (Cate Gown). The price of this dress is a bit higher than I usually spend, but it's very well made so I think it is worth it. I got it in the steel blue color, and the color is exactly the same in real life as it is in the picture.
I am 5'6, and I ordered the size 4. It is slightly longer on me than it is on the model. The hem of the tulle skirt falls just below my knees. My measurements are 30-24-34. The dress was a bit tight to zip up, but once it was on, it was comfortable. There was a little bit of extra room in the bust, but not so much that it needs to be altered. Overall, it fits well.
