Beautiful dress - loved the draping and got so many compliments!
I'm a true 8, but with size inflation these days, I almost always wear a 6. Based on comments, I ordered the 4 and the 6. I ended up wearing the 6 - the dress is not meant to be form fitting, so there's not really any waist definition. So I can see why people are saying it runs huge, but I think it's meant to be a little drapey and loose. Also, I'm 5' 8" and wore 4" heels, and the bottom nearly touched the floor. When I switched to flats, I tied a knot in the bottom to keep it from dragging - so watch out if you are on the shorter side. Also the fabric is a bit hot and doesn't breathe that well - so if you are doing an outdoor wedding in the summer, I would suggest a different dress.
That said - I really really loved it! I wore it to a wedding that I was in, and all the bridesmaids had to wear something grey. And SO MANY people asked me about the dress. The draping is really beautiful and it is unique without being too flashy. Would definitely wear again!
