Great shape, beautiful color
This dress has beautiful shape. I ordered a size 10 expecting to have to have it tailored to fit, but surprisingly it fit like a glove. I definitely think this is sized on the small size, as I'm 5'4" and typically wear size 6 or 8. The dress is definitely well constructed. I'd agree that the lace overlay is on the scratchy side, but I didn't find it bothersome enough to return. This may be the one for my September wedding with some alterations. I may simplify and remove the belt and front V neck lace. It is busier than I expected.

Structured & scratchy
I wanted to love this dress--and use it for a wedding dress!--but it wasn't to be. The dress is really gorgeous. It's very structured. I'm 5'7", about 125 lbs., and size 4 fit like a glove. If anything it was a tad too small. But the huge drawback for me was that the lace was *so* stiff and scratchy. It really irritated my skin for the briefest amount of time I had the dress on and I just couldn't see myself being comfortable wearing it for an extended period of time. Really a shame.
The sewn-on belt was also very hard and scratchy too. I scratched myself on it just trying to zip the dress. Sadly it went back.
