Love this Dress- Just not for my body type.
If you are 5 foot tall and have some curve, then there is a good chance that this dress will not be quite right for your shape. Overall, it was too long, but after getting the right tailoring done it was perfect.

This is a gorgeous dress. One of a kind. It does not run small. It is true to size. I am 5'10" and fluctuate from 122 to 126 depending on how stressful my job gets. I ordered the dress in 0 and in 2. 0 was way too uncomfortable in the chest and in the underarms area and size 2 was perfect. The front looks like it was made just for me BUT (and this is a big but) there is an unreal amount of material in the back; in a weird place too. It starts above my behind and goes 4 inches up. It's very unflattering and cannot be worn without alterations. I am not sure who the back was made for. You would have to have an unrealistically huge behind that takes half of your back. I had decided to keep size 2 as the dress is gorgeous and also because I have a seamstress friend whom I trust with the alterations. The dress will have to be altered and I hope she can do it without ruining it.

Lovely and timeless dress w sparkle!
I'm only writing this because I have the opposite opinion of the other sole review. Tadashi dresses all fit the same and this is no different! I am a curvy 125 pounds and I'm a perfect size 4 in Tadashi. This dress feels luxurious on- it is lined beautifully. And is the perfect length. (I'm 5'5.). I am so pleased. In person this dress looks and feels like it should cost twice the price. (I bought this for my rehearsal dinner.)
Nb I would not recommend to very short brides because the beautiful scalloped hem will make it an expensive dress to tailor.

More Mature than expected
I thought I'd love this dress, but it was my least favorite of those I tried on. The material combined with the sequins made the entire dress feel heavy and a little too formal for what I was looking for. We kept saying this would be a great dress for older brides, it had a more mature look and feel to it that did not make me feel comfortable.
