Comfortable and Elegant with Some Flaws
I am in love with this dress! It is soft, light, and flowing, just like the photos show. There are a few flaws, but the dress is so beautiful and fits so perfectly, that I'm willing to overcome them. Before buying this dress, know that it runs one size smaller than you think you are. I am usually a size 6 (sometimes even an 8) and I fit perfectly into a size 4. The bottom half of the dress is very sheer, so I am in the process of figuring out what to wear underneath. It will have to be a long slip, because any undergarment (or no undergarment) will show through no matter what. The dress does run very long. I am almost 5' 10", and this dress is way too long for me and will need to be shortened by a tailor. You will want to buy a belt for this so that it is not so plain, but one that doesn't snag the very delicate fabric. Overall, I am very happy with this dress and couldn't have asked for a better fit! After taking care of a few fixes, this dress is amazing :)

Much too sheer!
I ordered both this dress and the Annabelle dress by Jenny Yoo, hoping one would be perfect for my casual August wedding. I wanted flowy, soft, and light. This dress is definitely all of those things, but it had a few fatal flaws. Most importantly, it is VERY sheer. There are two layers to the dress - the top silky layer and the under-layer. As you would expect, the top silky layer is sheer - no problem there, it is a beautiful light fabric. However, the under-layer is also totally see-through. I put on a flesh colored seamless thong and could still see the outline clear as day. I have a very dark freckle on my butt and I could actually SEE IT through the dress! Not good. That killed it for me, but here are a couple other details about the fit. I loved the flowy-ness of the silk - great for a summer wedding. It is cut pretty long but seems easy to get altered - I am 5'8" and it would have needed 2-3 inches off the bottom so I could wear it with flats for my outdoor wedding. The top is a little strange, too. There are built in underwire-style cups in the bust area, but they are placed very high and did not come down underneath my breasts, instead hitting in the middle. That made the top look awkward because you could tell something wasn't exactly right (not to mention it was uncomfortable having the cups hit in such a weird place). For reference I ordered the size 8 and am a size 36D up top. I love the cut of this dress, but it just doesn't work in reality. Sadly, it's going back. I'll be keeping the Annabelle by Jenny Yoo.

Soft and romantic
This dress is so incredibly soft and comfortable. There is very little structure to the dress, and if you have a larger chest, as I do, I am not sure how you would find a bra that would offer the support you need to be flattering and not be visible. You would have to purchase a belt to go with this dress, which is nice if you want a simple dress that you can accessorize. If you are on a budget, this is definitely something to keep in mind.

This came in the mail today and I'm so happy with it. Stunningly flowy and soft. True about the textured stripe business another reviewer mentioned, but you cannot see that at all when the dress is on. My only complaint is that I could use some more bust support. Overall I'm quite happy.
