Rated 5 out of 5 by KirstenLM Great Dress
I'm a size 10, and got the 12. It fits perfect. I am 5'2 and it needs to be shortened even with 4'' heels. Beware: It is see through. I read a few comments that had mentioned this, but since the majority didn't, I went ahead and bought it. I might have to get an additional slip. It looks like I can get away with it, but in the natural sunlight, I'm not so sure. And it does fit snug in the top if your bust is bigger. This dress is for one of my two ceremonies. It's meant not to come off too much like a extravegant wedding dress which I saved for the "Main" ceremony. All in all, a good buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Melyna Perfect for Destination Weddings
I love this dress, it is very flowy and light. Perfect for a destination wedding.
My husband and I had our wedding vow renewal last week in Ixtapa, Mexico. I got a lot of compliments on my dress. The straps on the back are very sexy.
I'm size 4 and 5.2" tall. Since I knew dresses come usually very small I ordered size 8. It fit perfectly, no need to have any type of alterations. The only thing is that because I'm too short I had to get it shorten by a proffessional seemdress.
I requested the seemdress to leave the front a little shorter than the back just as the model shows this dress on the picture. Also, I got fitted on barefoot because I wanted to wear my barefoot sandals (feet jewerly) during pictures and ceremony on the beach.
Since the weather was too hot and my feet were very swolen, my heals broke after five minutes having them on. So I ended wearing my barefoot sandals the whole time (great back up) I was very confortable and they match my dress and the rest of my accesories.
Great dress for the value.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MarineBride Fairy Tale Dress
My husband and I eloped in an outdoor ceremony in the mountains of NC. I wanted something affordable, ethereal and that would fit a forest wedding, and this dress was perfect. It really is great for every body type. I appreciated not having to suck in my tummy for pictures since the empire waist allows for a flowing, comfortable fit over the body. I'll never forget how the dress felt, it was like wearing liquid satin. The beaded waistband is exquisite and can only be fully appreciated in person.
I did have some issues with the fit but those were mostly my fault. I'm only 5'3 so the dress had to be hemmed A LOT, and I lost weight between purchasing the dress and the wedding so I had to have the straps adjusted to keep the bust where it needed. And being on the petite side there was a fair amount of padding involved since the dress is made to fit larger bust sizes. But in the end it looked wonderful and I felt like a fairy tale princess of for a day.

This dress is even more beautiful in person. Follow the sizing guide! I was afraid that it would be too big when I ordered a size 8. I normally wear a 6. This dress was perfect!!!
