I really loved this dress. It fit almost like a glove and only needed a few alterations. I have to say it was a little bit difficult to alter because if you take it up at the shoulders it sort of cuts out the pattern, but if you take it up at the waist there's only so far you can go until it again takes away from the pattern. I managed to make it work for me, but it's something to consider if you need to do a lot of work to make it fit you.
On the day it flowed beautifully and caught the wind at all the right moments. I got a lot of compliments on it and the general consensus was that it was elegant while still being a bit fun and natural.
If I had to have one criticism of it, I got pretty overheated and the lace started to itch on the back after the while. However, I was in Bermuda so that is mostly down to the humidity, and I was planning on changing into a dress for dancing anyway so it was not such a big deal for me. Oh and also, the tulle train caught on the pavement a lot, so my maid of honour had to carry it down the aisle after me (which as concrete steps) and I had to carry it on most surfaces that weren't grass, carpet or tile.

I am French and my husband is British. I was looking for something classy and romantic that would bring a little bit of lace, a little bit of a ballerina feeling and I couldn't have dreamed of a better dress. The fitting was good, slightly larger on the top but I didn't need to alter it ( I bought a size 8 and I am 1m80). The only issue I encountered was a long stain ( potentially due to the label) on the bra area but hopefully my neighbour solved that out. A tip though : remove the label once you know it is THE dress for you to avoid very unpleasant surprise a month before the wedding....
The dress was so light to wear, everybody complimented it. I would highly recommend that dress.

Absolutely love this dress
This dress is even more beautiful in person than it is in pictures! I normally wear a size 2 but when looking at the measurements I was a perfect 4. When I got the 4 in, it way to big in the top (and I'm a full C cup). I reorder the 2 even though all the measurements were too small, and It fit perfect! If your a small girl with a bigger chest I would recommend going with your normal size (regardless of the websites measurements, I think there a little off).

AMAZING and CLASSY
I wore this at my wedding in July in SF and it couldn't have been more perfect. I couldn't imagine myself in a mermaid, stark white, 'bedazzled' dress on my wedding day and this was the perfect solution. The second I put it on I knew it was the one. Everyone complimented on how classy it was but still very young and sexy.
I took off the straps that connect the bodess so it was more of a strapless dress with the sheer overlay on top and that helped the fit feel better. I wore a size 0 and it was so comfortable. The only thing that was hard was the train isn't heavy so it tends to gather where it was since the weight doesn't drag itself out like heavier dress would. But it's so flowy and the satin layer undeath shines through so much its GORGEOUS.
