Not what I expected.
Positives: I LOVE that this dress has pockets!
Not so positives: 1. I am 5'4" and both the size 2 and 4 were bordering on just at/below knee length. The model must have mile-long legs. 2. This is the 2nd BHLDN dress I've tried on where the natural waist of the dress sits above mine (I do have a slightly long torso). 3. I was very disappointed in the fabric. It arrived very wrinkled, the pleats did not hold their shape in the skirt or the neckline. It seems that the fabric would be prone to wrinkling. 3. The color was also not as pale as pictured.
I wanted a less traditional wedding dress, and the idea of this one appealed to me, but the reality did not. I expected to feel like a classy lady when I put it on, but instead I felt like a little girl going to a picnic.
