Perfect dress: beautiful and comfortable
I absolutely love my wedding dress. We had a small wedding in a vineyard and it was the perfect dress for an outdoor wedding. So comfortable and flattering. It was exactly what I had in mind and so happy I found it.
I went by the measurements and this is a size 6. I am 5'6" and it was perfect when I was 140 lbs when I ordered it. I got down to 128 a few months later and had the waist slightly taken in. Very easy for my seamstress to just take in at the darts. Probably could've done a 4. There is some stretch. The under layer is very soft. I felt like I was wearing a cotton maxi dress. So happy with this dress.

LOVED MY WEDDING DRESS!
I am typically a 4/6, and the size 4 worked for me in this dress. I needed no alterations - I wore the dress with flats because I wanted the train to graze the ground. It was much shorter than the other gowns I'd tried.
The dress has some give in the waist, so it's not extremely tight. It was very comfortable for me, and with some spanx - I loved the silhouette the gown provided. For jewelry, I decided to go with some statement earrings that I got from Anthro, and an accent bracelet. This is a beautiful, classic dress, and I'm really happy I found this gown!

For me, this dress fit perfectly off the rack. Was torn between sizing down per other reviews, but the 8 was backordered. Ordered the size 10 and I love the fit. This dress is curve-hugging and for me a smaller size would have been less elegant. I'm 5' 7" 36B-30-41 and I will need to wear heels but not have altered otherwise. The underlayer is smooth and moves with you. I personally like with a vintage necklace and no belt to keep the lines clean. I will have to be careful with shoe choice as my heel wanted to grab the lace a bit. Highly recommend this dress.

Great for Travel
I was traveling to Ireland from the US for my wedding, so I was very worried about how this dress would travel. It did very well. Because of the lace, it made it with hardly a wrinkle!
I loved the dress overall. Very comfortable and flattering. My only complaint is that the inner slip got more and more twisted as the night went on. I had to untwist myself a couple of times during the evening. Otherwise, I would highly recommend this dress.
