Rated 4 out of 5Â by AnthroKid Cute, unique, comfortable dress
I tried this on in store and it was really cute on. It seemed pretty well made and there were nice details like the little loops on the straps to keep your bra straps in place. The lace did seem somewhat delicate, but the stretch in both the lining and the lace made this dress surprisingly comfortable for such a delicate looking piece.
I can range from an 8 to a 12 in dresses as I have a wide back and wide shoulders, but smaller hips. Usually 10s fit in most dresses. I tried the medium first, and it fit well except for at the bust. It was really tight in that area and was a bit unflattering (I'm a 36C if that helps). I sized up to the large and it fit well at the top but the waist and bottom was a little loose, so I'm wondering if this is made for more of a pear shape since another reviewer mentioned it was a bit tight up top for her as well.
In the end, I decided to think about it some more, but I may have to go back and pick it up =). I recommend if you're a bit larger on top to size up as the belt does help, and you can always have it taken in at the waist.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Pixie281 Gorgeous lace dress
This dress is so beautiful and I love it so much! Although I am only 5'3", I got this in the regular size XS (for reference I am 32A-25-35, 100 lbs). The length is just right, about 1-2 inches above my knees. I think the petite version would be way too short on me. I am small-chested, but the bust area was snug and fit me like a glove. The material does have a bit of stretch to it though. Ladies with larger busts may need to size up. The purple color and lace are gorgeous and well represented in the online pictures.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by dressmama The details matter
This dress is adorable!!! You can't tell from the online pictures but the layer underneath has blue almost plaid like pattern. It's very understated but adds something to the dress. I was inspired by a sales associate wearing it with a yellow cardigan.
It will definitely be one of my favorite purchases of the summer. Agreed it does run small, I'm generally a small 4/6 but purchased this in a medium.
The only reason I gave 4 stars to quality is because I am afraid it could pull easily.... but that's the chance you take with lace!
