Rated 5 out of 5 by bearsbeets This dress is gorgeous!
Both my mother and I recently purchased this dress. I normally wear between a 4 and 6 in jCrew dresses. I usually size down to a 4 when the dress is A-line or has a billowy skirt. However, after seeing my mom need to go up 1 size in this dress, I decided to try a 6. We have completely different body types and this dress is still flattering for both of us. My mom has a large bust and has smaller hips while I have a small bust and wide hips. My suggestion: get down your measurements between your 2 normal sizes and go for the larger one. This dress seems to run a little small in the rib cage (probably due to the boning).
This dress is absolutely beautiful. Normally neither of us like lace dresses, but this dress does lace right. It isn't itchy or fussy, but instead is classic and fresh. The lace is nice and thick, which eases any concerns about tearing or damaging it. The on-seam pockets are great for stashing your chapstick, phone, and tissues.

Rated 2 out of 5 by skobos Beautiful, but do not purchase if you've got hips!
I searched high and low for the perfect bridesmaid dress for my friend's wedding and bit the bullet ordering this beautiful dress in navy. I'm typically an 8 or 10 in dresses but know I take an 8 in J. Crew and the dress fit perfectly, but the style was ALL wrong for my body type even though I've had numerous dresses in this style and I thought it would surly be flattering. I've got big hips, medium sized bust and a smaller waist but this dress made me look like a whale! Will sadly be returning.
The quality is very good but I wish there wasn't boning in the bodice as there is no definition in the boob area between that and the lace over lay, which is not connected apart from the waist. Love that it has pockets but I think it added to the problem of making me look much wider. I am sure this dress will look lovely on a less curvy frame, though.

For some reason even though I normally take a ten in dresses, this dress in a size 12 (I ordered a size up) would not zip up. The skirt part zipped up fine, I LOVED the pockets, but I felt like the waist hit me just under my chest practically. Was so disappointed. It is a lovely dress and the lace is gorgeous. Also if you are older and do not have great legs, it was surprisingly short on me; I am 5'5"

I wore this dress to a wedding last night and received a lot of compliments. The quality of the lace is excellent. I picked the black color which is stunning. The bodice of the dress is boned, so there isn't any give in that part of the dress. I would have preferred it without the boning, but still like it. I normally wear a size 6 in J.Crew dresses and the 6 fit me perfectly. I indicated that it runs slightly small only because of how the bodice is made. I'm happy with the dress.

This dress was purchased for a wedding.
It runs small, the dress was returned to exchange for a larger size.
