The dress was very well-received and I felt amazing in it - like princess meets Bond girl :)
I rented this beautiful dress for a Mardi Gras ball and I absolutely loved it! The dress was super comfortable, and the skirt flowed beautifully - it has a lot of layers, but it's not heavy at all. The only concern that I have is that for those on the taller side, this dress will definitely run short if you wear the regular length. I am 5'2", and when barefoot, this dress just barely flowed onto the floor; in 4" heels, it came up about 3/4" from the ground. The length was perfect for me, because I wasn't tripping over the dress all night; if you're tall, definitely go for the longer length. Another tiny concern was that the bodice was a tight fit even with an unpadded strapless bra; the dress was perfectly comfortable and fit well without it, but I wish I would have been able to wear one. Overall, the dress fit pretty much exactly how I expected it to, and the shorter length was great for me. It's a great dress if you want to totally blow people away!
