Sized very small
I normally wear a size 8 in everything. I ordered a size 12 to make sure that it would fit and I still was unable to zip up the dress more than an inch. The dress also does have a slightly odd fitting bodice, it goes out at an angle from the waist so it is not fitted under the bust but more sits slightly away from it. It is a beautiful dress just not the fit or sizing that worked for me.

Lovely ethereal dress
Fits true to size (maybe a little on the snug side - so size up). Gorgeous dress, in person in is more beautiful than on the website, the bodice is gorgeous and a different material than the skirt. Feels like you are a fairy princess. The slit is modest and the multiple layers keep you covered so that its not as high as in the picture. The bodice cuts right into the middle of your stomach so if you are hoping it sucks you in it will cut right into the middle.

N/A- Didn't wear
I love this dress, its gorgeous. However, it runs extremely small. I generally wear a size 6 or 8, and the size 10 of this dress didn't even zip around my ribcage in the back, there was about an inch gap between the zippers. Also, it should be noted that the beading are all hand sewn, which one would expect with a dress of this caliber. However, they are VERY Frail. inside the plastic wrap that the dress came in, there were a few beads that had already fallen off the dress during the shipping process. I could not find where they had fallen off from, but don't panic if that happens to you.

"Look how it flutters as she walks, just gorgeous" Said some woman behind me as I walked down stairs
FYI RUNS SO SMALL A TRUE SIZE 6 LIKE MYSLEF NEEDED A SIZE 12! But it fit perfectly. Having to size up so much was annoying, Reem Acra needs a reality check, but other than that I was the bell of the ball or gala as it were. Everyone loved my dress. I looked like a million bucks without spending anything close to the $8,000 retail. I love RTR for letting us normal gals dress like this. I would like to hope that Melinda Gates saw my beaded bodice and smiled from the podium in delight during her speech.... well a girl can dream can't she?

Too small
This dress is pretty and could be great only if you order at least 2 sizes bigger. The 4 did not fit but almost did so I'm sure the 6 would have worked. I'm normally 0-2.

STYLIST REVIEW
Absolutely stunning! This dress is drop dead gorgeous! The beaded detailing on the bodice and the silky flowing skirt all add a luxurious feel to this style. This dress runs very small, as is common with Reem Acra, so going a size up for your backup size is needed! If you have a large bust, consider going two sizes up. It has a built in bodice for support, so no bra is needed. This is perfect for a black tie event!
