I ordered this dress in the colors shown, diamond white with black lace, and it's a drop dead gorgeous dress. It is available with Ivory with ivory lace and white with white lace, but I fell in love with the black lace online and knew it was the dress for me. I checked that it runs small only because it is a wedding dress and they do tend to run small. I typically wear a size 16-18 depending and the dress was ordered in a size 22. I've got big hips and a big butt, so that was my main concern, but ordering the dress based on my measurements and not what size I usually wear was the best way to go. This dress can be worn with the zipper and faux buttons on the back, but for an additional fee and a little extra waiting time, the designer will put in a corset back instead. I wanted to, but time constraints wouldn't allow it. The dress is stunning on, and even with the zipper, it sucks in all the right areas and flattens the ones you might be concerned about ( my tummy for me). Shipping didn't take too long, it actually got to me sooner than I expected which was a nice surprise. No one has the dress in stores yet, so I ordered mine without trying it on. I simply tried on similar dresses by the same designer, Allure. Not a big deal. I advise that no one buy shoes before they get the dress because I bought mine and now I need new ones. I'm relatively short, 5'5", so I expected the dress to be long on me and I wanted to hem as little as possible so I bought shoes that were 4 1/2 inches. That's about an inch taller than I really needed, so check your measurements and be wary of heel height. Also, as far as undergarments go, I was planning to wear a corset bra, but the dress already has boning in the bodice, so you really don't have to worry about that, just a comfortable bra ( or no bra at all, I suppose. I'm going with an adhesive bra, no straps and plenty of cleavage! And the dress itself is pretty light. It's a wedding dress, so obviously it has some weight to it, but it's much lighter than one would expect. My wedding date has been pushed back a bit since I ordered the dress, I do intend to have the corset put in by an experienced seamstress. I can't wait to wear this dress on my wedding day though! I am so ecstatic.

Ps. The girls at the Burbank UV location are the greatest. So helpful and super nice! Ana helped me with both ordering the dress and picking it up and she was super patient with me and helped take away all my concerns about ordering the dress without trying it on and the way it fit when picking it up. Thank you Unique Vintage for always being so awesome!
