I'm 4'11" and I ordered an XS but this still a little big for me. Also it was quite longer for me than the picture. I didn't change the length though. I think it still looked good. The chest area was a too low for me. I had the upper area altered, only cost me $35.
I'll wear gold shoes similar to the one in the picture.
Overall I'm happy with this dress. Excited for the wedding day.

Reception show stopper
I love the lace on this dress and how it flatters my figure. I have a thick waist. The lines of this dress really create some nice curve. I plan to wear it at the reception for the dancing. I searched for months for a reception dress. I am so glad I found the one!

I wore this dress on my August wedding day in upstate NY - the high temp of 97 for the day made a short dress a necessity! The quality is wonderful for the price, and the fit was extremely flattering - I'm typically a small on top and a medium on bottom, and the 6 was almost perfect. The only issue (as others have mentioned) was the depth of the plunging neckline. I am a 36B and before alterations, it exposed a little too much cleavage (and not in a flattering way) for me to be comfortable with. However, the alterations were fairly simple- I just had the straps shortened a bit, and one stitch put in near the center of the 'V'- and it only added $40 to the cost. Oh, also, I removed the belt and belt loops and the dress immediately looked more sophisticated. The exposed lace at the neckline is especially beautiful. I highly recommend this dress for a summer wedding!

Make it work
I eyed this dress for weeks, and carefully took the other reviews into consideration. It is a beautiful dress, and I am going to wear it for my wedding next month. That being said, it is like others said very low cut, and hit me at my shins. I took it in for alterations and could not be happier, it's the dress I was dreaming off! It is gorgeous and I am pleased with the quality.
