Cute spring/summer dress

If between sizes, go up. No give through ribcage, waist and hips. Cute dress, they didn't have it available in my normal size, but sizing down barely worked standing - pretty sure I would have ripped a seam sitting.

Ran small, itchy, and unflattering

This dress had potential but fell way short. It runs small in the chest and the hips but bunches in the waist. The seams are also itchy, and the material is cheap and uncomfortable. I was thankful for the new Kate Spade dresses I rented along with it for Easter Day backups.

Pretty dress, but was so tight in the chest area. Dress did not have any stretch. Didn't get to wear.

Beautiful dress -- but too small!

I really wish this one had fit. Loved everything about it -- the neckline, the color, and the playful silhouette. However, it was snug in the ribcage and I ended up passing on it.

Perfect Easter dress!!

Like all the reviews say it does run a bit small. I do like the way it fit, but it was a bit tough to breath. Since it was a tighter fit the zipper had a hard time zipping up, but it did zip up!! Also a bit see through, but my sister said it wasn't that bad. Over all a beautiful dress! Just a big snug. Only wore it for a couple hours. SO MANY COMPLEMENTS!!! I would definitely recommend to give it a try!

Gorgeous dress but best if you are tall and skinny. Definitely not for more hourglass figures.

I so wanted this dress to fit. I originally ordered a size 4 but it was too snug so I got a size 6 which was still tight. I guess it just didn't hit me in the right places. It is more for tall, skinny girls not for girls with an hourglass shape.

I thought this would be the best dress for post-wedding brunch in April.

The dress had a really strange and unflattering fit, especially around the chest. The top was really small and flattened me out, rather than accentuating any curves. From the waist down it was okay.

Cute and fun for summer wedding

A fabric was a little itchy, and the zipper was a little difficult to get up. The 4 fit, but the 6 was more comfortable. The fabric has little to no stretch.

Pretty, but runs very small

I usually wear a size 6 and have an hourglass figure, but had to go all the way up to 10 for this dress to fit around my chest. It runs very small and has no give. Pretty style and material, but would work better on someone with a smaller chest and hips. Definitely not made for hourglass figures.

glad i rented and didn't buy..

this was a backup option as there was a shipping error with my original choice. It ran a bit small, the cut was a bit mature, and it was totally see through. i could not wear underwear. For a dress that retails at this price, it was very sheer. it was alright, not my favorite rental.

Two sizes too small?!

This dress was a back-up fora church ceremony. Luckily, I had something else to wear. The dress was tight. I usually wear a standard 4 or 6. I ordered a size 8 because the reviews stated it ran small.

great dress, but top busty

I'm a 34DDD and this didn't work up top. Love the look of the dress though

Runs Very Small

Sadly, I wasn't able to wear this dress. I couldn't even zip it up. I'm normally a 2 and rented the 4. I should have rented the 6. Otherwise, the dress was pretty. I wish I could have worn it. Keep in mind the fabric is fairly sheer.

This is a pretty dress, but not even close to worth to its buying price

it is very tight, and there is no give in the fabric, so size up!
