Its a keeper!
I ordered the Vienna Dress in two sizes (8 & 10) and am keeping the larger of the two. I am 5'3.5 and generally wear a size 8 petite in most off-the-rack dresses. This one will need only minimal tailoring at the shoulders. The dress is light and beautiful, especially love the neckline and the elbow length sleeves - which provide great coverage without looking like they are trying to cover anything. Zipper is hidden at the side, nicely made. It will be perfect for my late summer wedding with beach party reception. Finding the dress has proven to be the easiest detail of the wedding - go figure! Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go find some shoes...

Elegant Renewal of Vows dress!
I had been searching online for a Renewal of Vows dress to celebrate our 35th Wedding Anniversary. I am quite petite and suffer a little from middle age spread so I was very conscious I didn't want to look matronly or as if I was wearing my older sisters clothes. I had pinned this dress on Pinterest not knowing it was actually available for sale!!! I discovered your site ,checked my sizing ,(crossed my fingers) and ordered a dress online from halfway around the world! It arrived today in Australia and it is absolutely beautiful!!!! It fits perfectly , is a great length for me at 5'1"and with a good control slip (I do agree the slip it has is very flimsy) it will be perfect for an Australian Summer ceremony! The lace is quite delicate and a mix of ivory on off-white backing. I will team it with a hail-spot headpiece and small heels for a memorable day.

I loved this dress. I was six months pregnant so I looked a little different than these ladies in the photos but the dress is beautiful and was perfect for our occasion. I got a lot of compliments and I think for a more casual event it is perfect. It is a little short, but I am only 5'3" so for petite (short) girls I don't think it is a problem. Love it!

Awesome dress but very short!
I am a curvy, shortwaisted size 14, and this dress actually fit quite well, and was very flattering. However, I am also tall with disproportionately long legs and this dress was sooooo short - it was between 3-4" above my knee. I think if we had stuck to our original plan of a courthouse wedding, I might have tried to get away with it and worn it with hose, heels and winged eyeliner for a kind of modified 60s look, but even for a garden wedding I feel like this is too short. I also thought about wearing it for my bridal shower, but I don't want to risk showing my elderly aunts the 'good china' when I sit down to open gifts! Sadly, I think I'm going to have to send this one back.
