I got married on the beach and ordered this dress in an off white. Wow the dress is perfection and so flattering. I didn't think I could get away with wearing a strapless (I am a busty gal 38 ddd) ordered 2 sizes up from my street size. I wore it with one shoulder (see the dress in the silver/grey color). The dress is extra long so that was the only alteration I needed done. I felt smug because the dress appeared as though it cost me $$$. It was very comfortable. I wore a strapless bra and a high waist shaper with built in panty. I look forward to an excuse to order this dress in a diff color so I can wear it again!

Great for the Price
Bought this dress for my wedding in about a month, and it's decent for the price. It is a little see-through so you'll have to wear white underneath. I had to alter the sides and the length, as both were larger than expected, purchased size 0. I also bought the Savannah Topper to go with it and it was also very large and had to get that severely altered. Overall, I am not super happy with the dress and wished I would have waited and bought a nicer quality dress. The tulle is very cheap feeling and not flowy at all, just not for me. I tried trading the dress in before making any alterations but BHLDN said it had been more than a month so they weren't willing to work anything out.

I'm so glad this dress lived up to the hype I gave it in my head. When it arrived I literally spent 2 hours looking in the mirror and playing with the different ways I can wear it.
I feel the dress runs large, it would be best to go by your waist measurement, unless you have a very very large bust. I'm 5'6" 160 34D and a 30" waist and the size 8 slid off my chest with no problem, and I plan on loosing 20lbs to get to a healthy weight for my wedding day! I'm going to have to get it altered for sure.
It was very long, but I did not find it excessively long like others did, if I worse 3" heels it would be floor touching.
Overall this dress makes me feel like a princess, its so flattering and I'm not even near my goal weight!
I can't wait to wear it on my big day!

This dress is so flowy and beautiful, I love it! The quality is much better than expected, especially that bodice!
I'm bang on the dot of a size 4 (35-27-37) so I got a size 4. The dress is still a little loose in the bust so I will have to get it taken in a bit. This dress is also VERY long on me but I expected that as I'm 4'9.
So excited to wear this dress on my wedding day!
