Rated 3 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer Gorgeous but too long
This dress is beautiful - I bought it for my daughter for her high school graduation (private school, they all wear white and have some strict requirements for shoulder exposure, and this would work).
She's been eying it for months, so even though we are very early to purchase, I ordered it. It arrived today and she tried it on - we bought an 8 because 6 was sold out. The underdress was actaully larger than the overdress (not length, but width) and bunched up at the waist under the lace overlay. The lace/underdress went all the way over the knee on her 5'6" frame and the tulle part fell to about 4 more inches. So it just did not have the proportions pictured and looked much "older" than the model photos.
So this will go back and we'll keep searching for the right thing!

Â by Verified Reviewer Extra tulle not for shorties
I thought this dress fit beautifully around the body, but I really wish there was a petite option. Size 0 fit about right (I'm usually a 0, XS or 25 at Anthro). At 5'0" the dress didn't really hit in a flattering spot lengthwise, however.
So - I fixed the length issue myself by having the extra tulle from the bottom of the dress removed. I was scared to death that I'd ruin the dress but it actually came out beautifully and was a much better fit for my ceremony - an elopement in Bali.
The dress was actually perfect for the warm and humid Bali weather with only a thin slip and a lace overlay. I think the dress picked up the breeze nicely without looking too full.

Â by Verified Reviewer Perfect for our small, laid-back wedding
I felt terrific in this dress. I knew I wanted a short dress, but still wanted it to feel bridal. With its detailed lace, flattering cut, and good 'weight', this one hit the mark. It is elegant, well made, and very comfortable.
It's longer on me than it appears in the model pictures, and I am tall! The tulle fell around knee length.
The dress looks loose on the third model picture (standing before a window), but it fit me more like the first two model pictures. I wear a size 6 in most brands: with this dress, the 4 fit perfectly. The waist is nicely cut, although pictured with a belt in the 3rd image, I don't think it needs it.
The dress is really two pieces: a lace/tulle overlay, and a removable inner slip. I intend to sew/purchase a second slip in some soft colour, in hopes that I can wear the overlay to some special event again without looking bridal.

Â by Verified Reviewer Simple dress with gorgeous detail
I bought this for my garden wedding, which will be a laid back affair. I was worried because my friend said she didn't think it would be "bridal" enough. When my Dad cried when he saw me in it, well that was enough to reassure me that this is the right dress. I'm excited to pair it with some nice jewelry. Perfect for an outdoor, semiformal wedding! It's just beautiful, especially in person, and the tulle at the end gives it that bridal touch.
I got this in a size 4, my usual size, and it fit just right.
