a little smaller than the same size i tried on in store
I love this dress! This is one of 2 dresses I purchased for my small wedding this July. The 8 fit perfectly in store. The gown I received in the same size is a little smaller. I typically wear a 4 in street clothes. I am glad i tried this on in store. I have a slightly broader back. I will need to get the lenght altered. beautiful dress.

The dress was pretty (if not traditionally "wedding-y"), but it's in no way appropriate for anyone over 5'5" or 5'6". I'm 5'7' and in bare feet it was noticeably too short.

Absolutely beautiful dress!!
This dress is beautiful and I am so in love with it, but unfortunately I will not be wearing it for my wedding. I ordered this gown and the Margeaux, which is the one I am going with. I ordered an 8 based on the size recommendation. It was a bit long at the top, but I am also small chested. The length was an issue, even with 4" heels it would still need to be altered.

So elegant and vintage!
I'm getting married in June 2014, and bought this dress on-line even though I had never tried it on (or any other wedding dresses for that matter!# and was a little nervous about the fit. I'm 5'7, 150 pounds and went with a size 8. Luckily, it fit very well! I believe it fits true to size- maybe even slightly bigger, as I will have to take in the dress in areas, especially in the bust area. I don't think the photo does this dress justice- it truly is beautfiul and has a very "Great Gatsby" feel to it. The photo also makes it seem very gold, but it's definitely a blush colour underneath, and champagne overlay on top. I was also surprised of how comfortable it is #although a tad heavy#. So excited to wear this for my summer wedding!
