I purchased this dress for my 9/1/13 wedding almost immediately after it was released and could not have been happier. For reference, on the date of my wedding, I was 5'6, 138 pounds, and a 36 B cup. The other review are right - the lace straps are a little large, but my tailor was able to take them in. Based on where the sash is, if you have any sort of stomach, spanx are also a must. However, other than that, I thought the dress was SUPER flattering, and I have received SO many compliments on how pretty it is.
I paired it with a brass headpiece and brass jewelry, and it looked beautiful.

I absolutely love this dress. I love the way it is light weight, but still feels like a full and voluminous skirt. I love the way it sways when you walk. I love the detailed lace on the top - it is so beautiful in person. I love the color as well. It's perfect if you're looking for something other than white. I would not recommend this for busty people as there is not a ton of room in the bust area. Other than that, it is flattering, easy, and fun to wear for hours and hours (I wore mine for a total of 11 hours!)

Beautiful but not flattering
I'm sure this dress looks great on some, but certainly not me. It's definitely a beautiful dress, the lace is so pretty especially the detail on the back, but the straps are very wide and wide set, on me, someone who already has broad shoulders, it made me look like a linebacker. Im a 34c, 26" waist, 36" hip, and this did not enhance mu figure at all. I really wanted to love this but it just didn't look quite right. The awkward cut of the straps just makes my body look exactly what I wouldn't want it to look like on my wedding day... That being said, the dress itself is certainly lovely and could work for someone else! This dress is verrrrry long bit seems like it would be a pretty simple hem job

I loved this dress
This dress worked well for me the day of my wedding. It did have wider shoulders but was easily altered to a perfect fit. It was easy to bustle and so light weight. A good choice if you want something unique yet vintage in feel.
