This dress is so gorgeous. Stunning, really. I ordered a size 6, even though I normally wear a size 4. The 6 fits perfectly. My measurements are: 34B bust, 28" waist, and 37" hips. According to the fit guide chart provided for this dress, I should have fit a size 4. But, because of the very helpful review below mine, I went up a size. I'm very glad that I did. If you have any doubts, I recommend going up a size. I cannot say enough about how beautiful this dress is. I can't wait to wear it. <3

Beautiful Dress - Vintage, Unique Original
I wanted to give a little bit more information about the sizing of the dress in the hope that it helps others!
Firstly, this really is a beautiful dress, i cannot stress enough. I didnt actually have the intention of trying this dress on instore, but when i did, i just fell in love. It is dreamy, romantic and classy - all while having a modern cut but looking unique. I cant wait to wear this, i really feel like it is going to sum me up perfectly. If i were a dress this would be it!
However with the sizing, i am a size 6-8, about 29 waist, 34 bust and 35 hips. I tried on the sample instore, size 12, it was too big understandably and there were no others in stock for me to try. The only size available online was an 8, which i ordered. Unfortunately due to my 34DD size, the dress looked horrendous up top. The measurements note that it is 35.5 around, but if you are any larger than a C up top i cannot see this fitting you. A 10 would absolutely fit you! Because of the cut of this dress being so loose, it seems that you wouldnt have any hip size problems - it just seems to be the bust. So for any curvy ladies, please be aware that you may need to size up. I just wanted to give some help to people not sure whether or not to go ahead and buy something online.
It really is beautiful though - etheral and gorgeous!

Just what I was looking for!
I couldn't be more happy with this dress. It is beautiful. The top is fitted just perfectly while the bottom fills out just enough to give you just the right volume. I am a 34C bust with full hips. This dress compliments my pear shape exactly the way I would hope it would. I found the fit to be pretty true to size, but would definitely recommend ordering to whatever your bust size suggests. Theres plenty of room on the bottom half so you dont need to worry about your hip size. As for the length, it is pretty long. Heels are a must if you dont want to trip. Also, the fabric quality is suburb. Absolutely worth every penny!
This fulfilled my desire to find a dress that screamed "bridal" but still had a unique quality that truly made it my own style. It was the only dress that made me smile when I put it on. When I opened up the bag I knew immediately that it was THE ONE. Thank you BHLDN for making my experience as a bride exactly what I have always dreamed of :)

I ordered this dress with 3 months to spare before the big day (after a previous bad experience elsewhere) and couldn't be happier. The dress runs small by one size - through the upper bodice - so if you typically wear a 2, definitely go with the 4 and take it to get altered. My tailor told me it looked like I was surrounded by butterflies. It's perfect for a spring wedding.
