This dress is beautiful, but I seem to fit between sizes. I'm 5'5" and 130 pounds with 34 B/C bra size. I bought a size 6, but would have had to pull the straps up at least an inch for the bodice to fit better. It was also loose in the waist. I exchanged it for a 4 and it is really fitted, almost uncomfortably so. But ... it's beautiful, so I'll keep it. I can't imagine how anyone with a bigger chest could wear it at this size. It hits me just at the top of the knees.

loved it but...
I wore this dress for my friend's outdoor wedding in August. I loved the way it fit on me and the color is really pretty. I was also happy with the quality. One note of warning: If the wedding is outdoors in the summer and your bridesmaids like to dance a lot, be aware that sweat will show. Majorly. By the end of the night, I was drenched and the dress made it VERY obvious.

Beautiful dress with great details!
I purchased this dress for my fall wedding. The dress is more of a robin's egg blue than the color depicted in the picture, but I find the actual color to be even prettier. There are great details like pockets and two slips. The dress fit true to size and is very comfortable. Overall, I'm very pleased with the purchase.

Lovely, but alas...
This dress is just as darling and beautiful in person as it is in the picture. I was planning on having this be the dress for my bridesmaids for my upcoming May wedding, but unfortunately the majority of them procrastinated and the dress sold out before everyone had a chance to get it in time for the wedding. I was so disappointed... my sister did order her dress and as it turns out it probably wouldn't have worked out anyway for her without serious alterations. This dress is definitely not made for women with a full bust; it was just too tight and revealing in the bust and the rest of the dress was too big. It would be perfect on a smaller busted gal. However, the dress is superbly well-made, the fabric is divine, the color is just as pictured (though maybe a tad bit more powder blue and less of a sort of seafoam like my computer screen shows). It is stunning! I know now why it sold out as quickly as it did!!
