Rated 5 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer Love it
I ordered this dress in the soft lavender as a bridesmaid dress and it is so pretty! When I looked at the size chart and measured myself I thought a 4 wasn't going to fit me in the bust area but there weren't any size 6s available so I ordered it and it fits great. The dress has built in cups which is nice. The style is very romantic and flattering, I would say the dress runs true to size. I am usually a 4. I'm 5'2" and about 129 pounds and a 34C. Love this dress & can't wait to wear it!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer Oh but it was so cute-- but just not for me.
This dress was the most rich cream color -- it was gorgeous and so very soft I absolutely loved that. It was about the same color as my Rivulets quilt from Anthro. A very flattering crem shade, my skin/hair is much as the models though i'm fairer of skin and my hair is a bit more auburn.
The dress flowed flatteringly away from the waist with soft flowing fabric. The dress had a built in bra, which means it fits like a glove when you order your size (I ordered size 16 i'm normally a 12/14 and 36DDD (43").
Ultimately this dress went back because of the undergarment and the sweetheart neckline which weren't working for me.
When you zip up the dress it's very snug, and there's literally no room for any kind of bra -- the bra is part of the dress. There's boning and cups -- and in this dress the bra was secured to the dress which helped keep it in place-- and the bra didn't have as many layers to fold flat so it was easier to put on than the other dress I tried.
What killed me was the bra didn't offer enough support. This bra offered better side support which eliminated backfat and left me with a nice smooth back- yay!! however in the front the sweetheart neck was a bit loose and there wasn't enough underbust support. Not only did my chest sag a bit which eliminated the nice long torso I have, although I didn't have any 'Wardrobe malfunctions' I also had some twisting over the farbric in the sweetheart neck that I had problems remedying.
The shear fabric leads the sweetheart neck to be very visible and because I had problems getting it to stay up and untwisted ultimately I had to let this one go. Also the sweetheart neck here shortens my upper body visibly which emphasizes my natural wideness while I need to elongate as much as possible. I loved the way it looked at a 45% angle to my body, I hated the way it looked from the front straight on.
If I were a couple sizes smaller, or if i'd purchased it in a darker more slimming color I think I would have loved this dress.

I ordered this dress as a potential wedding dress, but ended up wanting a floor-length dress. I did keep this dress anyway for potential future events because I liked it so much. I ordered the Cameo Pink, which is a nice light pink color - slightly less peach-colored than it looks on my computer monitor. I wear a size 2 in most dresses (32C, 25 waist, 33 hip), and the size 2 fit perfectly. It seems well made, and it has pockets! I like the thready lace on the bodice, as it seems less matronly than more traditional lace. The ribbon it comes with as a sash is kind of blah, so I was planning on getting an alternative belt or sash to go with it. I am mostly torso, so the waist does sit kind of high, but it seems to work.

I ordered the white because I thought it would be very pretty for a rehearsal dinner dress. The top of the dress is very pretty- very complimentary and formed nicely. However, the bottom of the dress needs at least two more layers of material because the pockets and any undergarments show right through. I tried to love it, but the big pockets that you could see were just too much for me. I returned it. Maybe other colors would be better.
