I purchased this online as my destination wedding dress (Allure color, size small). It is a beautiful dress, the fabric and design are very romantic. The color and quality of the piece is great, without question. I am 5'4, 125 lbs and a little top heavy around the bust area. The length was perfect for me, with the hem hitting slightly above the knee. However, the top of the dress seemed a bit too large. The straps were pretty long and the dress kept falling down and exposing my bust. I could have taken it in for alterations, but the other issue I had with it is not easy to change: I hated the waist. It does not sit at the natural waist, more along bottom of the ribcage (sort of like a pseudo empire waist), which I personally find very unflattering. Using a sash definitely helped add some definition to the waist line. I tried really hard to talk myself into keeping it, but realized it just didn't quite meet my needs. It really is a beautiful dress though. I absolutely loved the color, texture, layering and the quality of the lace.
