Super Cute But Runs Small For Curvy Girls
From the other reviews, I would have thought I needed to size down but am sure glad I didn't. I think, from what I can tell, the girls who said to size down were smaller in the chest area. Though I am short (5'), I'm also on the curvier side (34C) and weigh 110 pounds. I typically wear a size 6 and believe it worked out okay.
For you curvy girls out there, the dress does flatten your chest, thus making it slightly tighter around my bust. It fit just fine around my waist, but the "belt" area is a little tighter than the rest. Not sure why, but it doesn't look bad or anything.
I thought about sizing up, but the 8 was too loose around my waist. Not as fitted on me nor as flattering.
Overall, I'm happy with my purchase. I've been eyeing this dress for some time and when I saw it was on sale (a steal at $180), I immediately called my local BHLDN and asked them to place it on hold for me. The way the dress is cut is flattering and will make for a lovely rehearsal/rehearsal dinner dress.

This is a beautiful detailed dress. Sheer lace overlay and side zip, fades from ivory to nude. The band was tight and the bust really flattened my chest. I will try to size up but I am petite true to size 8 & I think this is not for large bust, curvy body type.

I purchased this dress after seeing its and falling in love with it several months ago.
The first dress I received was HUGE and had picks and flaws in it. I received a replacement today and smaller size. The smaller size fits much better however it has black spots on the back. I'm very disappointed as I wanted to wear this dress for my casual summer wedding.

Fabric has many flaws
This is a beautiful and flattering dress, however the one I received had several flaws in the fabric. There are small holes in the outer fabric and the embroidery is messed up on the upper chest-a very obvious place. I'm super disappointed in the quality of the dress as I hoped to wear it for my casual outdoor wedding.
