Ribboned Silk Gown
Fits as Expected (Maybe Slightly Larger Than Fit Chart) - Would Be Short on Tall Women in Heels
I purchased this dress in green, I assume the sizing is the same for the buttercream. I was hesitant to purchase this dress at first because of the extremely polarized comments about its sizing. I normally wear a size 2 in dresses and thought I might have to purchase a 6 or 8 based on what I read. But, I decided to go with the 2 and it's perfect. The size 2 is Bust: 33.5", Waist: 27", Hips: 38". I'm 5'1.5" and with 3" heels the dress just sweeps the ground. I already knew I would have to take the length up a bit b/c I'm so short. Otherwise, it fits like a glove. Happy shopping.

Simply Stunning and So Comfortable
My birthday was February 9th and I tried on many dresses at the downtown Chicago BHLDN, and this was the dress I chose! I cannot tell you how happy I am and how much I love this dress. I'm having a beach wedding, so I wanted something comfortable and lightweight and something that was unique to my personality. This has all of those qualities and more. The most comfortable dress I've ever put on! It fits and hugs all the right things and is modern yet vintage and so romantic. The quality of this gown is spectacular. I can't wait to receive it in a couple weeks!

I found the one!
I was in search of a romantic, flowy, "va-va-voom" gown. This wedding dress fit all of those expectations and more! I was pleasantly surprised when I received it in the mail. I am 5' 8" around 132 pounds, 36 B in the chest and wear a size 28 pants. I ordered the size 6, but am now exchanging for the size 8. It fits very nicely and hugs my body in all the right places! I would highly recommend it if you are looking for a unique dress! So excited!

found the one. and the dress.
Size fits true to size, size 6 was a perfect fit for me, but will have to take the 'small of the back' in a bit. The dress fits great in the chest (36b) and hips/waist (wear size 28 jeans). I love the lightweight material, it's beautiful and will be perfect for our end of summer wedding. I think the dress is conservative enough for our church wedding but is just as flirty and fun for our outdoor reception at my parents house. I am always looking for something different in my clothing and jewelry style and this dress fits the bill. This dress is timeless enough to wear and look back in 20 years and be happy I picked it without regretting something overdone and too trendy. I will look back and be happy that I chose a dress that fits my style. It's beautiful and very reasonably priced. Can't wait to wear this dress on our wedding day.
