BHLDN was very helpful- I contacted them about the sizing an they were very quick to respond. The item arrived shortly and nicely packaged. It seems to be very nicely made- very pretty and delicate.
My bust is a 32, waist 24, bra size 32D. I ordered a size 2 knowing that I would probably have it altered around the body. The cups were a smidge too small and the body was too large. I returned and will reorder a size 4 and try to have the waist altered to fit me properly. Not sure if a tailor will be able to but I'm going to try anyway because I love it so much.
It is quite short so a high waisted skirt is a must.

I'm wearing this in December with the Silk Swells Skirt. The combo is insanely cool. I'm what you might call a reluctant bride. Was not at all looking forward to the whole white wedding thing. Hated the idea of strapless. I tried this top only because my stylist at BHLDN encouraged me to. To prove her wrong, I put it on. I was floored. It's stunning. Fit is amazing. Holds my very normal B boobs tightly in place. I can definitely see how this is not for the larger breasted. But if your medium to small, it's becoming and not at all inappropriate.

So soft and comfortable
I purchased this top to go with the Tulle Tiers skirt, they go together so beautifully! I was so surprised at how comfortable this corset is. The material is soft and feels great on. I am very small chested, 32/34 B. Based on my measurements, I was in between the 6 and 8. I went with the 6 soley because I have a small chest and am so glad I made that decision, it fits like a dream! And is so comfy! Surpirsed how easily the top moves with your body. If you are petite and small busted, go with a smaller size.

BETTER THAN EXPECTED
I visited BHLDN last Saturday for my bridal consultation and was blown away by the service and quality of the designs. I knew going into this appointment that I wanted this top. I'm a full B and fit so great in this top. I think this works much better for smaller chests. I wear a 6 and had to get a 10 so this runs small. The best part of this is after my wedding, the top can be worn again.
