I am beyond excited for my wedding day after getting this gorgeous dress. I ordered a size 4 and was worried that it would be too small after reading the reviews, but it fits like a dream. I barely need to have it altered. The details on the sleeves are beautiful. Zipper is a little tough to get up past the waist but overall I am very happy!

Not too small...
I found this dress to fit perfectly for my size and believe me I've tried on 4 different sizes in this dress.
It is lovely and sweet and beautiful. My only complaint would be that the zipper is quite difficult to zip at a point. This was the case on all the dresses I tried on. The point where this dress seems like it could be too tight for people is just below the breasts where it is a bit tighter. Otherwise, it seems true to size to me.

I think this dress fits true to size. I ordered a size up since all of the previous reviews said it ran small, but now it is too big. I love how delicate and feminine this dress is. I see that my true size will ship later this month. Definitely exchanging!

Beautiful Dress- it's exactly like the picture
I purchased this dress in a larger size since the reviews indicated that the dress ran super small. I was hoping they were wrong, but unfortunately they really were not. The dress does run small, however if you are aware of that and can go up at least a size or two, you should be fine. I am normally a street size 12 and I ordered the 14 and it *just* fit. I am pretty proportionate (except my arms, so the sleeves were a little tight. However, I expected that because I deal with that in all my clothes so I knew before ordering this dress that I would need the sleeves to be altered to give me a little more room.)
The silk chiffon in the front of the dress has a split panel that you really can't see in the picture of the model. I think it's pretty though and I believe it's there to give the dress more movement.
It's really a beautiful dress and what I really love about it is how unique this dress is. In a sea of strapless mermaid dresses, this dress stands out. It will go beautifully with my soft, romantic theme wedding.
A few things I will mention to help anyone considering this dress:
a. the color says it's ivory, but to me, it really was white. That is fine with me, but if you are looking for a truly ivory dress, this might not be the correct color for you. b. the zipper was a little hard to zip. Even without the dress on, it was really hard to unzip.We were afraid we might break the zipper when the dress was on. It's a hidden zipper so that's probably why, but I need to have it looked at by the woman doing the alterations and see if anything can be done to help the zipper.
Really love the dress!
