Lovely Dress, but Smaller than Expected
I agree with some other reviewers that the top is a touch smaller than expected. I'm 5'3" with a 34" bust and a 25" waist, so in theory the XS should have fit correctly according to the size chart and other items I've purchased here. On the contrary, the last 2 or so inches of the zipper are quite tight, so I will probably take it out just a hair. Overall I am quite happy with the dress. I purchased it during a sale and received it in good condition by the estimated delivery date.

Pretty Dress with fit issues
This dress is beautiful. However it has some fit issues. The upper portion of the dress runs really small (and I am small chested). I think I would need to size up, unfortunately than it would be too large in the waist. The belt seams to sit at an unnatural place. In the photos it looks like it should go around your waist but on me it was sitting at my ribs causing it to be uncomfortable. If I wore the dress with the belt at my waist it was too low cut up top and an unavoidable boob slip would've happened. The details are gorgeous but the fit isn't great.

Not as nice as BHLDN's other dresses
This dress fits snug at the top. I usually wear a size 4, however I had to get the size 6 as the top was too snug. However in going with the size 6 the dress is too big (wide) from the waist down.
The dress is very pretty from the front, however the sides look funny as there are no pleats like the front and back have. I don't understand why they would have made the dress this way... There should be pleats all around or none at all.
We bought the dress in serene blue, but it's more aqua green than blue. The color is nice, but be aware that it does not look the same as it does on the computer screen.
BHLDN has BEAUTIFUL dresses, however I think this one is for sale for a reason.

This dress is so pretty and I couldn't wait to receive it in the mail. I tried it on and I could not zip it up all the way. I am 5'10" and wear a 6 or 8. I ordered a 6 based on the reviews. The dress fit at the waist and the length was great. However, I am a 34DD and it was inches away from closing at the top. So, I am returning it. I still rate the dress very high and would love to own it. I just think I would have to get a size that would need too many alterations.
