Lively Chevrons Dress
Great little dress!
I'm 5'2", 130 lbs, with a small bust, and a 4 fit me perfectly. Since I'm short, I sewed up the bottom layer peaking out and it's a much better length that way. I like the simplicity of it and look forward to wearing it for my low-key daytime wedding! I only knocked one star because the sash/bow that comes with it is not very flattering and looks a bit cheap compared to the dress.

I too had to return this dress for a smaller size. Exchanging was painless, though.
I loved this dress from the first time I saw it, shopped around, and came back to it--on sale, no less!
It has just the right amount of structure inside for a minimally-endowed lady. The only bummer is that it is not easily shortened. I'm 5'2" first thing in the morning and this dress is a GENEROUS tea length on me. Kind of not the most flattering length, really. My seamstress was able to take up the sheer layer that hangs out from beneath, so that it just peeks out, which I think looks better anyway. But she was not able to do anything about the overall length because of the fancy little trim at the bottom, the way the chevron pattern plays out, and the fact that the dress is one continuous piece, without a seam at the waist. Maybe another seamstress could have done more, but it would have probably cost more than the dress itself. I don't know.
Overall, very happy with my purchase.

Definitely larger than expected. Measured myself with the guide and sought advice from the (very friendly and helpful) stylists, consensus was to order the size 14. I took a risk, ordered the 12, and it was still too big! A 10 would have been great. I'll need to get it taken in.
But it's absolutely gorgeous. The tulle petticoat is lovely but it's almost even more lovely without! Beautiful dress. I'm delighted with it. Perfect for the reception!

lovely elopement dress
Beautiful dress, just lovely and simple-perfect for my elopement. Wish they carried petites though. I'm 5'3 about 97lbs and will need about 3 inches taken in from the size 0 which will really cost me. The length is perfect tea length with heals but the overall size is just too baggy for someone with a slight frame.
