This is my dress!!
This is a gorgeous dress!! I love it! I was a little apprehensive ordering online, but the fact that it is returnable, and they send you a free shipping label, why wouldnt you??
This dress was a great fit. I agree that you should order a size down as it it a little on the bigger side. I usually wear a size 8,but got a 6 (and I'm glad I did) and it still had a little leeway in the breasts and stomach area. My body type is athletic, and I must say this dress is super flattering. It gives me a waist, and is so light and comfortable. However, I will have to get it altered because it runs long. Overall I can't wait to wear this dress on my wedding day. I know my fiancÃ© will love it too, as it hugs my curves in all the right places.
One more thing! I was so pleased on how this dress was packaged! It had absolutely no wrinkles when I took it out of the dress bag. Thank you, thank you bhldn!!! This dress was a great buy!!!

Perfect in every way
I drove four hours to Houston just to try on this dress and it was so worth it. I've always loved lace, and I wanted something simple but elegant. This dress hits that in every way. The lace is stunning and the fit is great for a lot of body types. I'm 5'8" and the length will be right for me with heels but if you're smaller you'd definitely need hemming. I did find that it runs a bit large. I bought a six and it will need to be taken in but that's expected. It's lightweight even with all the lace and very comfortable for Texas weather. I couldn't imagine a dress being more perfect, and for $600 you cannot beat the price.

Beautiful but wasn't the dress!
The sizing didn't run large for me. I usually am a size 0 and ordered a 00 per suggestion from the website. The chest area was tight and hard to zip up. My regular size would have fit better and more comfortably. Unfortunately, I decided to return this dress not necessarily because of the wrong size but because the shape and material of the dress were not as I expected.
The pictures show the bottom of the dress flaring out really beautifully however the bottom of the dress fell straight down rather than out. You can get this effect by someone styling the bottom of the dress for pictures but definitely not walking around. I was considering getting some kind of petticoat to keep the bottom flared out however the material of the dress was so thin I feel like it would have shown from underneath.
Also because the lining and lace is thin, the dress really showed every bump on me which I didn't like! The lining of the dress seemed a little staticky too.
Overall, this dress is beautiful and I loved the uniqueness of the lace. It just ended up not being the dress for me!

I had it narrowed down to this one and one other dress. I found this dress to be extremely flattering, comfortable, and beautiful. I know that I would have been 100% happy with it, but the other dress just seemed more elegant and had a few details that I loved. What I loved about this dress was that it was so lightweight and airy. It really is a beautiful dress. I found it to be true to size. I tried on my normal size 4 and I wouldn't need any alterations.
