This dress was perfection! The fit was just about right-on. I'm typically a size 8, and ordered that size in this dress. I just had the bust nipped in a bit on the sides with no issues, and took several inches off the length. The lace overlay is absolutely gorgeous. All in all, this was the perfect fit for our elegant but quirky farm wedding. I received oodles of compliments, which made the price tag a little more palatable. I love that this dress is forever an heirloom part of our special day.

I really loved this dress. It fit almost like a glove and only needed a few alterations. I have to say it was a little bit difficult to alter because if you take it up at the shoulders it sort of cuts out the pattern, but if you take it up at the waist there's only so far you can go until it again takes away from the pattern. I managed to make it work for me, but it's something to consider if you need to do a lot of work to make it fit you.
On the day it flowed beautifully and caught the wind at all the right moments. I got a lot of compliments on it and the general consensus was that it was elegant while still being a bit fun and natural.
If I had to have one criticism of it, I got pretty overheated and the lace started to itch on the back after the while. However, I was in Bermuda so that is mostly down to the humidity, and I was planning on changing into a dress for dancing anyway so it was not such a big deal for me. Oh and also, the tulle train caught on the pavement a lot, so my maid of honour had to carry it down the aisle after me (which as concrete steps) and I had to carry it on most surfaces that weren't grass, carpet or tile.

I am French and my husband is British. I was looking for something classy and romantic that would bring a little bit of lace, a little bit of a ballerina feeling and I couldn't have dreamed of a better dress. The fitting was good, slightly larger on the top but I didn't need to alter it ( I bought a size 8 and I am 1m80). The only issue I encountered was a long stain ( potentially due to the label) on the bra area but hopefully my neighbour solved that out. A tip though : remove the label once you know it is THE dress for you to avoid very unpleasant surprise a month before the wedding....
The dress was so light to wear, everybody complimented it. I would highly recommend that dress.

Absolutely love this dress
This dress is even more beautiful in person than it is in pictures! I normally wear a size 2 but when looking at the measurements I was a perfect 4. When I got the 4 in, it way to big in the top (and I'm a full C cup). I reorder the 2 even though all the measurements were too small, and It fit perfect! If your a small girl with a bigger chest I would recommend going with your normal size (regardless of the websites measurements, I think there a little off).
