I love this dress! I feel in love with it instantly while browsing through the website and decided to buy it to wear to a wedding I'm attending this summer. The dress is comfortable - not at all stuffy - and will be breathable and cool for an early August outdoor wedding. I agree with a previous reviewer who said the color is more saturated in person. The pictures also don't do justice to the scalloped hem that peaks through the top layer of the dress. It's adorable! As far as sizing is concerned, I was right in between a 6 and an 8 so I ordered both. The 8 fits perfectly and I can return the 6 for free! I would definitely order with your waist measurement in mind - both the fit of the dress and the bow is pretty spot on when taking that into consideration. I wouldn't consider the dress too busty, but the overall design of the dress does leave you a little wiggle room in the bust and in the hips.

Too large in bust
Absolutely beautiful dress. The color is amazing. I loved all the details especially the scalloped edging on dress lining. HOWEVER, the bust is really huge. I ordered in a size 0 for two bridesmaids that are 5' 1" the top was so big it would need to be taken in at least 4-inches to make it fit. This girls is pretty busty. I was so sad it wouldn't work. I didn't want to put in another $50 or so for alterations. Sadly I have to return the dress. Beautiful.

A very cute little dress. It will need a few alterations to get the top fitting just right (I'm 5'2 and usually need to but Petite to get the proportions correct. I bought to fit my waist but the bust is just a little too big now; which is strange as I'm fairly busty.) Otherwise I love the detail, and the fabric is more sheer than in the photo. There is a very pretty slip lining with a scalloped edge underneath too - sweet as a button! The rose color is slightly more saturated in real life, but still very wearable and not too peachy.
