The dress was absolutely stunning, and exactly what I expected it to be. The lace was gorgeous, and the skirt was so soft and flowy. I typically wear a size 2-4, and I ordered a 2. It fit very well - I would have had to take in the lace a little in some parts to make it fit perfectly, but overall the fit was great and just needed some minor adjustments. I would definitely have gotten it shortened (as I expected I would need to) because the dress fell below my knees (I'm only 5'4").
I ended up returning it because I decided I wanted something a little less conservative. This dress is so beautiful, but not really "sexy". It was exactly as I expected, but I changed my mind on what kind of dress I wanted.

It was just right!
I followed the order down a size suggestion and was for most part pleased with fit. It was a bit snug in chest (even though I am not very big up there), but worked well wo a bra. Loved the sleeves! and with size down order I think they fit just nicely. I thought the fabrics all around were nice. The dress fell so nicely especially lengthwise since I am tall.

Nice design but lacking quality
I feel a bit guilty saying this as everyone else has left glowing reviews for this dress but I tried it on and did not feel that the quality of the dress justified the price, even on sale. The lace sleeves felt itchy, like they were made from a man-made, cheap fabric and the bottom hem of the dress looked like it had been cut with a pair of scissors. I thought that these factors were a great shame, as the design is really pretty.
For size, I'm a 6 in Anthropologie dresses and the size 4 in this dress fit me.

I was drawn to this dress right away, and it was everything I hoped for and more.
HOWEVER: At the beginning when I tried the dress on, it fit strangely. I was worried! Then I realised that I needed to remove the straps in order for the dress to fit more "naturally". Otherwise it was pulling my chest up too much!
I got so many compliments on the dress, and it's a truly beautiful piece (you could also wear it again, since it's not obviously *just* a wedding dress).
It fits true to size, from my experience. And I was meticulous about measurements!
