Spun Sugar Shift
Cute well fitted dress
What you see is what you get, lovely dress with cute features! The only negative thing is that the "under" dress is shorter than the rest of the dress (which doesn't show in the pictures). I'm 168 cm, 57 kilos and it fitted me nicely.

Mod and Adorable
For once, a shift dress that is completely flattering on my figure! I am not one of these lucky ladies with the tiny little waists [my measurements are 33-27-37], so I found this dress to fit me perfectly in a size 4 [my typical size] with no alterations needed. I did decide on another dress simply because when I sat down, this dress was not completely comfortable, but it wasn't because I didn't love it. Very high quality and well made.

I purchased this dress for my wedding reception and it was beyond perfect. I am absolutely delighted with the quality, construction and detail.
I agree with most of the other positive reviews re: bust - to - hip proportion. And even though I have larger hips and narrower shoulders (I'm usually a size larger on the bottom), the size 2 fit me perfectly without alterations. Because of the cut, I suspect that all but the most busty could accomplish the same by going up/down a size. Although tailored, it is still a shift and there is a bit of extra give in the fit.
Another added bonus: this is one wedding dress you really can wear again.

Not so great
I ordered this dress for my winter wedding. I really admired 3/4 sleeve and nice lace details of this dress. However, when I got it I was slightly disappointed. Althought sleeves where silk and flowy, organza on the rest of the dress was rather stiff. The neckline was very wide and stuck out in a weird way. Waist line was way too wide. I am 5'6 128 lb and ordered size 4, shoulders were just right but the waist was about 3 inches too big. Although I know that some people took it to a tailor I thought it costs too much money not to be to my satisfaction. I did contacted consultant but her only advise was to take it to a tailor, when I inquire if they can recommend any in NYC area, she replied no. Not much help. I tried on this dress 3 times at different times trying to like it, but no, its going back.
