Lace Inlay Dress
I was pleased with the quality of this dress. I had no problems with the arm holes, and I'm a curvy girl. & the length was acceptable (especially if you wore heels), and I'm only 5'2". The top part of the dress (sleeves and bodice) was very flattering and fit well. Perhaps it's just my body that's off, but I'm a solid size 10 and was able to squeeze into an 8. However, I'd probably need to go up to a 12 before it would hang like it does on the model. I have a feeling they have her wearing a larger size than she actually is in order to achieve that look. I'm no expert but I think if you were between a 6 and 8 you could make this work.

Stunning and unique!
I am so happy that I chose this gown! I normally wear a 6 or 8 in dresses, and ordered the 8 in this. It fits like it was made for me - and I feel great in it! I was worried about the arms because of the previous review, but they worked well on me (and my arms are not super thin by any means). My measurements are approximately:
36 (34B bra size)
The cut of this gown is very flattering. The sheer Swiss dot mesh provides coverage while still being slightly sexy. One of my favorite aspects of the gown is the fabric, as it does not wrinkle easily, if at all. The only downside that I can see with the gown is that it slips on over the head, but that cannot be avoided with this style of gown.
I am 5'5", and don't think I will even have to get this hemmed, depending on the height of the shoes that I choose.
As a bit of a fashionista and lover of good design, I have always had a thing for Temperley London gowns. This Alice by Temperley gown is a fantastic alternative - you still get a great design without having to pay $3,000 to $6,000.

This dress is beautiful, the only issue is that the arm holes are too tight, and i have trim arms. The size 4 fit me perfectly everywhere except the arm holes, it just cut into my armpits a bit and i knew i would have red spots from the seam by the end of the day.
again, i have trim arms... i tried on up to a size 8 (i was swimming in it) & the arm holes were still sewn too tight... i made a joke to my party that i must just have big shoulders... but honestly i do not. So sad this didn't work out.
the White lace in the front is stark white (not something i wanted) but was willing to look past it because of how flattering the size 4 fit.
also i have a cooler skin tone- the pink accents were really flattering
