I usually wear between a size 4 and a size 6 (size C chest and a larger behind). I followed the reviews and ordered a 4. I was worried that it wouldn't fit me, but to my complete amazement it fit perfectly! I am so excited to wear this for my wedding! I didn't want to spend a ton of money on a wedding gown, and I'm thrilled that this dress worked out for me.

Sadly had to returned
I loved the look of this dress, but the fit wasn't great for me - the bust in particular was very roomy. I read the guidelines and other reviews and ordered a size down, but the bust was still too big. There are no built in cups, so the whole top half was just bulky and not what I was looking for.

I wore this for my little elopement in New Orleans on New Years Eve. Turned out perfect! I'm curvy, size 14ish, and wore the size 16 unaltered. Could have been taken in in the top a bit but actually fit just fine as is. The lace top is beautiful and provided just the vintage look I was going for. I wore a vintage fur wrap over because it was darn cold. The dress is comfortable, lining is soft and stretchy but not overly clingy. Deco drop earrings and red lipstick completed the look. Perfect!

Love the detail and the stretch!
Originally I bought the Omari dress, which was beautiful, but not the best for my body type. I'm much curvier in my hips, so the idea of a form fitting dress was a little scary. However, I thought it would be best to accentuate my curves, as when I tried the Omari to hide them, I just ended up looking frumpy. As BHLDN states, the dress does run a little large. I ordered a size 4. I wear a 4 in my tops, but an 8 in the hips. I was panicking the lace dress wouldn't fit over my hips, but it did. The material is stretchy and soft, which is awesome. I didn't feel stifled. I could actually move and sit down without worrying about busting a seam. The lace detailing at the neck, arms, and bottom is gorgeous. Also love the crossing below the bust- creates great shape and is flattering. Wore this dress with the Elopement pumps. Wonderful, classy dress. Thinking of getting it dyed black so I can wear it over and over again as a cocktail dress because I love it so much.
