Beautiful Lace Detail
This dress is lovely in person. The lace overlay is stunning - with the lovely nude color underneath. The contrast between the body and the lace only arms is a subtle, but unique detail. Quality was top notch.
Fit: I am normally a six/eight in most Tracy Reese Dresses. I ordered the 8 - I found it fit fine on my legs/hips but was a bit large on my chest through the waist. I do think this runs a bit small through the legs/hips - so if you are more pear shaped - I'd recommend sizing up.
So with all the nice things, why not more love for this dress? I didn't feel like it flattered my figure. I am thick-waisted - and this dress made me feel very frumpy. I think adding a belt (see second image) could make it more flattering, but I'm not sure if that really lends to the beauty of the dress.

I rarely write reviews but this dress is simply amazing. I am having a destination wedding and needed something for a small court house ceremony. I like that this doesn't look like a wedding dress but it is definitely classic enough to be worn as one. I'm 5'2 125 pounds with a 34 D bust and I purchased the size 4. It fits like a dream and will not require any alterations. The lining underneath is a really beautiful pink/nude that is not done justice in this photograph. If you are on the fence about this dress (for any occasion) I would definitely purchase it. It is VERY re-wearble! I can not emphasize enough how wonderful it is. I am SO excited to wear this dress!

So Happy I Ordered This!
I received this dress in the mail, and I am SO glad I decided to give it a try. It fits beautifully. I am having a destination wedding (Mexico), and plan to wear this to our 'courthouse' ceremony here in Canada. The fit is TTS and hits me a little lower on my leg than the model (I am five eight).

Absolutely Gorgeous & Re-wearable
I am having a September, out door, backyard bbq type of wedding and wanted something that was classic but short and weather appropriate. I had seen this dress online several months ago and finally ordered it and could not be happier with it. It is beautiful and very well made and best of all it does not scream "wedding dress" at you. That is to say, you could totally wear it to other events.
I am five three and 142 pound with a 34 D bust and was worried about sizing as I normally buy wrap style dresses as I am a six on bottom and more like a 10 on top. The size eight fit like a glove and will not require any type of alterations!
