I ordered this dress in a medium. It fit exactly as expected as per the size charts. The length is at a flexible midi length that will work for a range of heights without alterations. That aside, this dress is beautiful. I was a little unsure about the neckline at first, but after trying it on, I can't stop thinking about this dress and how gorgeous it is. I have a HUGE crush on this dress. So the crush part. . .the dress I received looked like it had been worn with creases across the lap from sitting for a while in it. I could have remedied that, but it also had a small hole or tear in the netting. I have sent it back, asking for an exchange. Here's hoping my love for this dress doesn't go unrequited! 5 stars if I can get an exchange in good condition.

Love, love, love!
I loved this dress online but was a bit worried about ordering it because of the mixed reviews. I was lucky enough to try it on in store and didn't find it had the problems others had noted - the slip was totally fine, the lace is beautiful etc. That said, when I first put it on I liked it but didn't love it and was a bit disappointed. Then my very helpful sales rep suggested a different belt with a bit more bling. This totally changed the look of the dress and I fell in love! It's exactly what I pictured wearing and those who have had a sneak peek agree that it's a stunning dress and perfect for me. I can't wait to wear this on my wedding day!

Like others, I fell in love with this dress when I saw it online. Then it dropped in price! Despite having purchased 3 (cheap!) dresses already, and a sinking feeling it wouldn't fit me anyways, with urging from a friend I ordered a large a week and a half before leaving on my wedding trip. It ended up being the one! <3 It wasn't the most flattering around my tummy and hip area, had there been an XL I definitely would have sized up. But it was perfect otherwise and was so gorgeous I didn't think twice despite the not quite perfect fit. Everything others have said about the slip is true, it's see through and totally the wrong fabric to allow the dress to hang nicely without 'catching' and shifting when you move around. But easily solved with another slip!

Love this. It's the "one"
I fell in love with this dress the moment I saw it on the website but was afraid it would age me. I am 5ft tall, 100 lbs with a pear figure. This dress, while long, did wonders for me when I tried it on, and given that it is being discontinued, I decided to purchase it for my wedding next summer. I will need to have it altered in the shoulders since it is too long, but it fits well pretty much everywhere else. (A little large in the torso, but I am nearly flat-chested so, on a normal person this wouldn't likely be a problem). It is unlike anything else I have seen and is versatile--buy a different colored slip and sash, and BAM! new dress! Wear it again! Snatch this one up, ladies, before it is gone for good.
