i just received this beautiful reception dress today and it is just gorgeous. i really like that the slip has adjustable straps and an empire waist. It sort of gives the illusion of the dress being empire waisted. i am 5'8 and very glad i ordered a 10 because although i usually wear an 8 and am fairly lean with long legs this dress is quite a bit shorter on me than it is on the model. im ok with that. but just keep in mind that on someone my height with a bust size of 34-36 C, this dress hits mid-thigh. you definitely need to rock it out with some flowers in your hair and some awesome platform sandals to maximize its bohemian potential! its rather sad with flats. i originally ordered the daisy dress in an 8 and it fit but was not NEARLY as beautiful or figure-flattering as this vienna dress.

I purchased a size 12 because I wear a size 10 or 12 in dresses, generally. I'm 5'4", with an athletic/stocky build and short waist. The dress fit very well, and skimmed over every bump. The A-line cut is very flattering.
The lace shell seems to be well made. The white liner slip seems cheaply made, flimsy, and is very nearly transparent. Fortunately, it snaps out very easily. I tried the dress on with a muted blue slip, and actually thought this improved the look somewhat.
Unfortunately, overall I felt a bit matronly in this dress. It is almost more mother-of-the-bride than bridal. At 37, I find I am struggling with finding age-appropriate bridal dresses for my casual May wedding, and this dress was no exception. While very pretty, this lacy number seemed like it would work well for someone younger looking for a more bohemian look or for someone older looking for a more conservative look. I think this one will be going back. As mentioned, the fit is very flattering, but the overall aesthetic just isn't working for me.

I ordered a few dresses from you, but this is the "ONE"
The lace is so pretty and with the right under garments it will be my dress for my Spring wedding! I'm 5'2 and wear a 8-10, but ordered a 12, I'm a little top heavy...it fits great! I will be taking in the seams at the hips, the lace is thick at the seems...overall this dress is Perfect for me!!!! Love it!

I ordered this dress in an 8 (street-size 8) and it fits me perfectly. I am looking for a wedding dress for a casual beach wedding. This is in the running. The lace is beautiful and is very comfortable on. It is a little shorter than I want (a few inches above the knee, I am 5'2") but so pretty that I may go with it anyway.
