I ordered this dress a few weeks ago and absolutely loved it when I received it. It's very comfortable and well-made, and just overall a very unique and beautiful dress. I plan on having this as my second dress or "reception dress" and I am so excited!
The dress does run a bit big - I normally wear around a size 0-2 and I ordered the 0 and it fit me perfectly! My measurements: 5'6, 110-115 lbs, size 26 waist, 32 B chest.

I was waiting for this dress to come back in stock in my size for a while, but finally I got it (as other reviewers had advised, I ordered a size down)... well I pulled it out of the box and tried it right on and my initial impression was that I loved it. However, upon inspection, I realized that the 'belt' detail on the waist was not sewn correctly- it did not appear horizontal as in the picture, but had a big hump in the middle. I called the company, and they sent me a new one. Although the new one also had a slight hump in the seam, it was much better than the first dress and I liked the dress enough that it didn't bother me.
The only complaint I have with the design of the dress is the tag in the back. There is a cut-out detail on the back of the dress and they used an overly large tag that hangs right down through the opening. Obviously you'll have to cut the tag off, but for this price it just seems like a detail that should've been a little better thought out.
Overall, I love the dress and it is going to be perfect to wear to my rehearsal dinner.

Nice dress but not for me
Tried this on recently, after seeing it online and its super pretty in person but was not for me. The embroidery is lovely. Might fit better for less curvy gals. Also, its good to note, hard to see in the image, the dress has kind of an ombre fade from light off white at the top to a light brown / taupe at the bottom. I didn't find the material super comfortable either.

All around perfection
I never write reviews but felt inclined to do so with this purchase. I read all of the previous reviews which is what ultimately pushed me over the edge to finally buy this dress. Once it arrived and I saw it in person, my first thought was...it's so unique. The second thought was...it is worth much more than $300! I have broad shoulders and usually wear an 8, but the 6 fit perfect thanks to the previous reviews that it runs a bit larger. It's so hard to find a dress at my age that doesn't look too young or too old on me. Wonderful dress, age appropriate, not too long, and very light...will be the perfect dress for my reception on the beach next July!
