Lovely but runs slightly larger
I'm very short, and my measurements are 34" bust, 28" waist, 34" hips. After reading the other reviews I decided to order based on the bust measurements from the size guide provided for this dress since this dress is more fitted around the bust and natural waist. I ordered this dress in size 2 even though I normally wear UK size 8-10 which is equivalent to US size 4-6. I'm so glad I did!! My dress fits me perfectly except for the shoulders, it is slightly loose and flappy around the shoulders which was weird considering I'm quite broad of shoulder but I think I can get this fixed easily enough. The fabric is really lovely, I noticed a couple of loose threads here and there but nothing a few snips with the scissors can't fix.
The slip underneath fits me well enough but I think I might get a different slip to wear underneath (luckily the two are not sewn together so you have the option to replace it).
What pleased me most is actually the lace on this dress. I love the pattern and it feels great on. I was looking for a boho tea length wedding dress that had more of a modern lace pattern on it than the traditional white lace you find on most dresses. Being that I'm really short the hem of this dress actually falls really perfectly for me: just a couple of inches above my ankles.

Beautiful dress, poor quality
I ordered this dress for an informal garden wedding.
I was so excited for the dress to arrive and couldn't be more disappointed. The fit was a little on the larger side, which I expected from the other reviews, but the quality was terrible. Brand new out of the packaging, the top layer was already unraveling in five different places. The lining of my dress did not lay nicely under the top layer. Returning the dress today :(

much too large
I should've heeded other reviews, but just had to try this dress. It is beautiful and very nice quality, but was at least two sizes too large and much longer on me than the model. I tried a size 0 and am 5'4" and 106 lbs. Wish they made a smaller size!

Lovely but large
Absolutely gorgeous dress! I ordered this for my daughter, who, like the first reviewer is smaller on top (also 33-27-26) so I went with a size 4 since she has an outdoor August wedding and I expect it to be hot weather. It looks great on her, but is much too large and a bit long-waisted. Am re-ordering it in a 0 which matches her bust and will hopefully be not as long in the torso. The lining appeared to have tiny dots of blood on the inside (not visible) in a 6 by 6 inch patch, kind of like a finger was pricked while sewing. Kinda creepy, and I hope the replacement dress does not have this! Otherwise it's perfect for my daughter, named Hannah ;-)
