Like a Fairy Tale
This was the only dress I tried on, it was unexpected but something spoke to me immediately when I saw it! The color was everything I had hoped for, a soft nude and less pink than it looks on the website. It was light and breathable and I'd say its very true to size - I had minimal alterations in the bust and had my corset sewn in for support. The dress was miles too long when it arrived so we had each tier raised just enough to let it drag the ground over my bare feet. At the last minute, I had one of the two layers of tulle taken out and I'm glad I did. (It flowed much nicer than with the crunchy stuff!) I've never felt more like a princess and received some compliments of a lifetime on my beautiful day..it was a perfect rustic fairy tale.

Beautiful gown, unique color
Gorgeous gown. It's perfect for my woodland wedding. The color is more interesting than the photos--a sort of mauve/beige/blush with casts of grey in the embroidery--very soft and antiquey. I'm 5'4'' and 120, got a 4 which will need minimal alterations in the bodice although I probably could have gotten away with a 2. The natural waistline falls at just the right place. A friend suggested having the entire bottom tier take off (I'm going to be barefoot and I'm not very tall to begin with!), but I haven't gotten it to the tailor yet to see how it'll work. Thrilled to have found this--it's more beautiful than I imagined!

I typically wear a 4 in dresses so that's what I initially ordered. However I had to exchange for a 6 because the slip layer was just too tight on bottom. Even with ordering up a size minimal alterations will be required. I will say that I agree with previous reviewers though... removing a layer from the bottom tier would be perfect.

I just received the dress in the mail. It's more beautiful then I could imagine. I ordered a size 6, I am 5f 8 and weigh 137pds. I have a smaller chest size. I could have ordered a size 4. I will have to get the dress altered. I love everything about this dress, it is very vintage bohemian. I can't wait until my wedding day....this is the PERFECT dress if you want to make a statement a go a little outside the norm.....
