Eyelet Medley Sheath
The perfect dress!
I knew this was the dress I wanted the second I saw it online. It was absolutely perfect for me . . . a simple and elegant line, but with beautiful detailing along the hem. I am petite and would get absolutely overwhelmed by a full "ball gown" style, so this sheath was exactly what I needed and wanted to feel gorgeous on my wedding day. Some of the reviews said that it was tight in the ribcage - perhaps, but I have a small ribcage and it fit perfectly right out of the box. I got many compliments on the beautiful fabric and the eyelet hem. One small issue was that the delicate straps were not sewn on securely (one actually tore out of the bodice when I first tried it on). It was a simple fix for a seamstress friend of mine to take care of - so I danced and celebrated all night without worrying about anything tearing. Our wedding was fairly casual (backyard, very homemade) but this dress could easily be dressed up or down depending on how formal your event is. I would definitely recommend it for petite bodies with narrow torsos - it's not really made to accommodate a curvy bust. I am 5'2", 112 lbs., flat-chested, with a muscly back and shoulders. I bought the 0 and it fit perfect in the bodice. My legs are pretty short - I didn't have the length altered, but did have to wear fairly high shoes so that it wouldn't drag on the ground. Overall, I LOVE LOVE LOVED wearing this dress. It was exactly what I wanted!

My dream dress!
I had been looking for a dress to renew my vows in. I knew the minute I saw this dress that it was the one. The reviews were extremely helpful. I am 5'6 and weigh 113, I am a 32D and typically wear a size 0 or 2. I ordered the 2 a month before my wedding and I feared it would be small but it fit perfectly. I wore very high heels because my husband is 6.5 so the length was perfect. I did not alter the dress. In person it is beautiful and the color is amazing. I had people tell me it was the most beautiful wedding dress they ever saw. It was comfortable and I didn't want to take it off. I did purchase the little bolero which matched perfectly for the church ceramony. I can't say enough good thigns about it.

I can't rave enough about the dress. I was really nervous because I didn't try on any dress at stores and worried that this dress might be a bit too informal, even though we were having a backyard/barn wedding.
I did have to have some alterations; shortened, bra cups, and I had the bottom taken in so that it replicated a mermaid fit. All the alterations only cost $100 and were perfect. I ordered a size 4 based on previous comments that the waist was small, which it was.
I highly recommend this dress, people loved it, and I felt amazing and comfortable in it.

Really enjoyed this dress for my insanely fun Santa Barbara wedding on July 27, 2013! My size 2 fit exactly true to size. There is no give to the fabric though, so that's something to consider!
