The dress was comfortable and fit well. It was pretty, but didn't feel as whimsical as I'd hoped.
I'm very petite (98 lbs, 5' tall, 30C, as RTR won't let me fill out my profile), so finding a dress that fits around the shoulders, arms, bust, and waist is hard. I'm also wary of dresses that are too long. This dress was much longer on me than the model, of course (just a bit above my ankles), but otherwise fit *perfectly* (perhaps an inch or two in the stomach, which was a blessing since it meant I didn't worry about eating too much at dinner). The material was delicate and pretty and the tulle added a very nice effect and was lots of fun when I was dancing the night away. I got compliments on the dress, was comfortable, and had no problems of any sort with it.
As other reviewers have noted (and I forgot when it came time to put it on!), the zipper does fall slightly every so often, so pinning it would be a good idea. I was at a family wedding and never felt like it was coming down an embarrassing amount, but it was noted by my boyfriend a few times and (eek!) a stranger at one point as well.
As they also noted and I was prepared for, the tulle will likely arrive quite messy. My mom bought a little hand steamer that I took to the wedding and which got it looking perfect in just a few minutes; a hot shower may also do the trick.
The only unfortunate thing was that I was looking for something with a bit of a vintage flare (literally, I was hoping for a bit of a petticoat effect), and this didn't have it. If you don't want too much of that feeling, this is definitely the dress for you! If you want something with more drama, though, this dress might not be exactly what you were looking for.
