Dolce Vita Dress
According to BHLDN's fitting guide I am in between a size 8/10. (29 waist, 38 chest, 41 hips) I went with size 8 and it fit perfectly, like a glove. It is important to find a strapless bra without extra padding if your full chested, (I am a 34D) because it will ruin the shape of the dress, the chest area is very form fitting. This dress is very comfortable and it is just a very, very well made dress. I got so many compliments! I plan on purchasing a different colored belt and reusing the dress for parties.

Super cute, but not for me
I was in love with this dress from the moment I saw it, and thought it would be perfect for my spring outdoor wedding. It wasn't a great look for me though..I'm petite, busty, and don't have the smallest waist (36D-29-36) and the size 10 fit fine (except it was big in the hips). The dress just didn't do anything for my shape, sadly, but I'm sure it looks good on other figures.

Super cute dress.
I bought this dress for my small brunch wedding, and this is the perfect dress with the right degree of informality, without looking like I've just bought a white / ivory dress. The fabric is high quality and beautifully lined. I am 5 ft 7 and it hits a little bit shorter than this pic -probably 2-3 inches above the knee (which is perfect for me). I am 33 inches in the bust (32B) and 25 1/2 -26 inches in the waist and the size 2 fits like a dream. I will probably pop in some chicken fillets though as the cups on the dress look better with a bit more filling them! The colour is a soft ivory.

love at first sight
I just bought this dress today at the Chicago location! It was my favorite online, and I went into my appointment trying on about ten dresses....this one was a CLEAR winner! So gorgeous, fits like a glove, and goes perfectly with my vintage-themed wedding!!! I am only 5'4" so I was definitely worried about the length, but with heels it is absolutely perfect!!!! The only alteration I foresee is possibly taking in the shoulder area a tiny bit since I have a much smaller frame on top. LOVE THIS DRESS!!!!
