Rated 3 out of 5Â by Nordic Beautiful idea, but tight fit
I loved this dress and was looking at it for an event. I went to a store to try some of the sizes on before buying - and I'm glad I did! I normally wear a size 0 or 2 and the 2 barely fit me. It was incredibly tight around my hips and at my armpits. There are little strings inside the sleeves that got caught on my jewelry and fingers when putting it on. Also, the neck opening was really high and resembled a t-shirt? I feel like a boat neck would have been a lot more flattering/look more expensive. The back was VERY sheer. I also tried on the size 4, but it looked like a large nightie on me. I wish it was a little more forgiving in size, while staying with a tailored shift shape.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by bkny if you're going to buy, size up! Way up!
Just wanted to echo the sentiments of a previous reviewer. I typically wear size 0 and thus, I ordered this dress in a size 0. I was excited when it arrived in the mail but lo and behold my excitement was dampened when I realized I couldn't get the sleeves up my arms or the body of the garment down my hips. It was quite comical, really. Anyway, just for comparison's sake, I'm 5'2'' and just under 100 lbs. I didn't even order the 0 petite --- I imagine that would barely fit a small child. I kid, I kid. But really, if you want this dress, size up, way up!

Off the dress is artwork--the detail is exceptionally beautiful. I usually wear a size 2, but couldn't get the dress past my waist it was so tight. The four was also too tight, and by the time I got to the six the middle was shapeless and baggy. It looked frumpy. I also noticed that my hand kept catching strings as I put my arm through, and that many of the petals were off on one side.
I was going to spring for this high dollar dress for my wedding rehearsal dinner, but I canât make it work no matter what size I buy. ï
