Better than expected
When I saw this dress in the shop, I wasn't wild about it. I kind of grudgingly tried it on. . . only to find it was the most flattering dress of the day.
It was incredibly comfortable to boot. Definitely a great dress, worth trying on for sure - you may be pleasantly surprised.

Classic, Timeless & Elegant
My bride put this one and we both fell in love. She looks exquisite. We did as the other reviews suggested and bought a size down. She was concerned that it wouldn't fit but it fit perfectly. Beautiful color on her. She is 5'4 and doesn't wear heels so we'll have to find a very good seamstress to make it the desired length. This dress is flawless. Modest yet sexy. I would marry her in jeans, but she deserves this incredible fashion statement.

This is a beautiful gown and it is very comfortable to wear. I ordered the size 6 as advised by a BHLDN stylist and it fits well. It is also the perfect length for me. I am 5'10" (and am planning on wearing flat shoes). I ordered the dress online and it arrived within 3 days as promised.

Comfortable, prettier than the picture
This is one of those dresses you would think only looks good on lithe, tall ladies. And it does. BUT: it looks fantastic on we short, curvy ladies too! Such is the magic of Tadashi Shoji. That and the fact that all Tadashi Shoji dresses are incredibly comfortable. Like, I could sleep in this comfortable.
I'm 5'3" and usually wear a 4 or 6 in dresses. I have a full bum and size b chest -- and this dress made me feel curvy and beautiful. On some level, I feel like this is a more "mature" dress what with the high neck and stiff-looking lace, except that the scrolling lace is soft and rather whimsical and fun. And the high neck isn't solid -- you get a pretty peek of skin from the bust up. Oh, and this dress is extra gorgeous with a wide rhinestone belt like in the third picture. Another perk, this dress barely needs any alterations for we height challenged ladies (major plus!). With a pair of chunky platform wedges, you might need no alterations at all. And the dress has a very slight train -- just lovely.
