This is dress is perfectly elegant and simple
First of all, I have to start off by saying that the reviews saying dress is a foot too long are ridiculous. Yes the dress is extremely long, but like any wedding dress, you have to get it tailored! It's normal -- nothing wrong with the dress. I tried on this dress at the BHLDN in Georgetown (Washington, DC) and fell in love. The material is cotton so it's light weight and breathable. It looks like a wedding dress, but it's not overly formal. It's boho without being out of date. All-in-all it's perfect. The detailing is gorgeous as well. As with any wedding dress, I will be getting it tailored to fit me like a glove.

This dress is exactly what I wanted for my wedding, however when the dress arrived I immediately tried it on and just like all the other reviews it was about one foot too long. (I am 5'4) The dress was also really big in the chest area and the sleeves kept falling down. I took it to the seamstress to ask her opinion and she could alter the dress, but would basically have to remove almost the whole bottom layer of lace for it to fit me. (The alterations would cost around $200) The dress also had three black spots on it that the seamstress said looked like machine oil. I also felt like this dress was a little expensive for the quality of the fabric, it was rather see through and appeared to wrinkle easily. I returned the dress feeling like 700 bucks was WAY to much for this piece.

As soon as I saw it I knew it was the one. This dress is so stunning, everything I always wanted in a wedding dress simple but elegant. There are so many things you can do with it in terms of dressing it up. I did not find the sizing to be big like the other reviews, I would say its true to size, I'm 5'3" 135 lbs curvy build, I usually am a 4/6 but I ordered Medium because I'm going to get it altered anyway. Can't wait to get to wear this beautiful dress on my big day!

Big and beautiful
Yes, the dress is massive. BUT it photographs well and can be altered. I ordered and XS which is more like a M but took it to a good tailor. He raised the hem, brought in the sides, and thinned the straps (my request, not necessary). It now fits perfectly and I can't wait to wear it. The bottom is beautiful as it lets your shoes (or boots, in my case) glimpse through the lace. The lace details on the shoulder will photograph beautifully.
