Rated 4 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer Charming and delicate
I bought this simply to wear as a guest to a wedding in the fall in Arizona. It is beautiful and delicate, and even though I can't wait to wear it and wear it again, I am disappointed by the sizing. I had to size up and the dress is now mid calf length. It looks fine with heels, but if you are petite and have a good sized chest (I'm 34 C), you will run into the same problem I have. I am normally a size 4 and I had to send back the size 4 for a 6. I could always get it hemmed but I'm sure with the material and layers that won't be an inexpensive venture. Listen to all of the reviews and buy one size up when you buy this dress.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer So disappointed :(
I ordered this dress for my daughter to wear for her senior pictures and homecoming. She when we went to put it on her for the pictures the zipper was very tough to move up and down it took me several tries to get it while the photographer waited patiently. Then she tried to wear it again for homecoming a few weeks later and while putting it on the strap broke and the zipper became so unbelievably stuck that I had to cut the zipper to get her out of it. You don't want to deal with this headache on your big day. I so wished that it had been higher quality because it is lovely.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by CMMM beautiful, but runs small (think European sizing)
This dress is stunning in person. The blue color is a bit brighter than the photo (not quite a dark Navy like in the photo). Despite the beading, it feels soft and not overly structured. I am 5'6 and ~118 lbs (and a 34B). I ordered the size 2 and it was definitely a bit small (didn't zip up all the way). I sent it back and have ordered the size 4 instead. The sizing is definitely more similar to what you would expect from European (rather than American) shops.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer So Stunning- but Tricky
This dress is even prettier in person.. The beading and detail is totally stunning.
...However, this is definitely a delicate item. I have a feeling I'm going to be afraid of snagging something the entire time I wear it, but that's the price one pays for a really intricate effect I suppose.
Sizing is very complicated, I've found at least. I'm 5'6, 115-120 lbs, and a size 34C. I still can't tell if the size 4 is perfect or if the top portion is cutting into my back. I have an extremely thin frame with a bit of a disproportionate bust. The dress is not very forgiving in that respect. Also, if I gain 5lbs, I fear I'll have to size up.
When in doubt, size up.
Worth the price overall though. I'm honestly probably just going to keep 2 sizes/colors.
