Violet Vim Dress
Cute but small in fit and not the same color shown
The dress is really pretty and cute and runs a bit small. The color of the dress is bright purple and looks nothing like the picture shown. I actually thought they sent me the wrong dress because it's a completely different color. I decided to keep it anyways even though it wasn't what I expected.

Pretty, but SMALL!
Like the other reviewer, I found this dress to run extremely small! I have quite a few Tracy Reese dresses, all in either a 4 or a 6. I ordered this dress in a 6, and I could barely zip it up past the waist. The waist and bust seemed to be cut very small.
It's very pretty dress, and as long as you size WAY up, could be a lovely addition to your wardrobe. Sadly, I'll be returning mine!

Runs Super Small, Color Different than Pictured
I purchased this dress during the BHLDN winter promotion and sadly it doesn't come close to fitting.
The color is a very vivid purple, think Willy Wonka purple (not the color pictured) - but that wasn't a deal breaker for me - it is still a pretty dress. The overlay detail is stunning, the V in the front is beautiful and unique.
Fit: I am normally a 6/8 in most Tracy Reese dresses - and went for the 6 pursuant to BHLDN's size guide. Sadly for me, I couldn't zip it up past the waist. It runs super small. I laid my dress down and grabbed the measurements lying flat - waist: 12"; Chest: 16." Since there are no other review, I'm wondering if I got an item that is labeled incorrectly or if this just runs super small - because I don't know how the size guide can suggest that a 28 inch waist would be a six in this dress - when the flat waist measurement is only 12 inches.
Very disappointed in my first BHLDN dress purchase.
