This is a beautiful gown and it is very comfortable to wear. I ordered the size 6 as advised by a BHLDN stylist and it fits well. It is also the perfect length for me. I am 5'10" (and am planning on wearing flat shoes). I ordered the dress online and it arrived within 3 days as promised.

Comfortable, prettier than the picture
This is one of those dresses you would think only looks good on lithe, tall ladies. And it does. BUT: it looks fantastic on we short, curvy ladies too! Such is the magic of Tadashi Shoji. That and the fact that all Tadashi Shoji dresses are incredibly comfortable. Like, I could sleep in this comfortable.
I'm 5'3" and usually wear a 4 or 6 in dresses. I have a full bum and size b chest -- and this dress made me feel curvy and beautiful. On some level, I feel like this is a more "mature" dress what with the high neck and stiff-looking lace, except that the scrolling lace is soft and rather whimsical and fun. And the high neck isn't solid -- you get a pretty peek of skin from the bust up. Oh, and this dress is extra gorgeous with a wide rhinestone belt like in the third picture. Another perk, this dress barely needs any alterations for we height challenged ladies (major plus!). With a pair of chunky platform wedges, you might need no alterations at all. And the dress has a very slight train -- just lovely.

This is such a beautiful dress. The lace detail is so unique and beautiful. Best of all it is comfortable and lightweight. Can't wait to wear this to my fall wedding.
My measurements matched up with a size four and I ordered a size down as recommended and it fits perfect! No alterations needed and it arrived incredibly fast! Love, love, love.

The lace detailing on this gown is absolutely exquisite. This dress is so light and comfortable and was absolutely perfect on my shape. You really can't beat the price for this beautiful gown! The best thing about this? I can probably rewear this to a black-tie affair :)
