I normally wear a 5.5 although sometimes I can also wear either a 5 or 6, depending on the designer/brand. Around the time I ordered these heels, I had planned to get the 35.5, but unfortunately they sold out of that size right before I sat down to place the order, and the 35 was sold out as well. Some of the other reviewers mentioned that the shoe ran narrow, so I thought the 36 might work. I was definitely wrong. The size 36 was monstrous on me; I don't think even a 35.5 would have been small enough. With that said, the shoes were very pretty and seemed comfortable although it was a little hard to tell with the sizing issue. They were well-made, and I really liked the overall look. I do wish the turquoise color had been a little more saturated and vibrant; it was lighter than expected, but, for the most part, I thought they were stylish and well-designed. Unfortunately, I could not keep them due to the much too big size, so I had to return, and I have not been able to reorder because my size has not been in stock. If these shoes do come back in stock and you're concerned about sizing, I would recommend ordering your true size and perhaps either 1/2 size down or up, depending on which way you typically lean. If BHLDN ever has these back in stock in a 35, I will definitely consider reordering because I think they would be a nice complement to my overall wedding day look.
