ADORE this dress
As others have said, this dress does run very large. I am just under 5'8", weigh 130 and normally a size 6... I bought the 4 and am having it taken in. That said, this dress is exquisite! Even More gorgeous in person! Craftsmanship is excellent, color exquisite & SO elegant! Will be perfect length with 2 1/2" heels-slightly longer in back. MOB in 2 weeks and am thrilled with this gown!

Incredible dress with funky fitting
When I saw this dress on the BHLDN website, I was in love! It is even more stunning and beautiful in person than on the website. However, the fit of this dress is very off. I am on the slender side, but there are so people that are significantly thinner than I am. I am typically a size 4, weigh 125 pounds, and am 5'5''. In this dress, I tried on and ordered the smallest possible size - 0, and I am still paying over $100 in alterations to get it taken in. The dress is gorgeous and worth it to me, but please be aware that the fit is not very feminine (tons of fabric in the back and waist, getting inches taken in off of the smallest size). I also have larger hips, and I need to even get it taken in slightly in the hips. More than likely, you will need to have this dress altered, so keep that in mind when selecting this product. It is stunning and I think worth it, depending on your occasion, but I wish I knew how much extra cash I'd need to spend in alterations when purchasing.

Elegant & Beautiful
I'm 5/7 1/2" and about 143 lbs. I usually buy a size 8 but I ordered the 6 based on others' recommendations that it runs slightly large. It fits perfectly!! I especially love that the length is not short, in fact, with 2 1/2" heels, it is still grazing the floor. This dress is beautiful on, it fits well and is comfortable #slightly heavy#. As a seamstress of 30+years, I appreciate the quality of the construction, it is very well made and lined with a nylon tricot. The color is flattering and the sequins are not too glittery. My husband and daughter #the bride# absolutely love this dress!

Beautiful MOG Dress
I purchased this dress for my son's wedding. I ordered a 6 and an 8 based on reviews, I usually wear an 8 prior to losing some weight, now a 4/6 - 5'4' 125 pounds. I kept the 8 because I liked the fit in the hips better. I didn't want it too snug, knowing that I would have to have the top and the hem altered. Fit after Alterations similar to model. I have to say purchasing this dress was the best money I have ever spent on a piece of clothing. I felt absolutely beautiful and have never received so many compliments.
