Thalia Maxi Dress
Beautiful but the sizing is unpredictable
I purchased this dress in the green for an event I'm attending at the end of November, but sadly I won't be wearing it. The dress is huge! After reading other reviews and having problems with BHLDN sizing before I contacted the stylists for direction. I was instructed that the 14 would be the best fit for my measurements (34 D, 30" waist and 45" hip), however there wasn't a 14 available so I took a chance and ordered the 12. I need at least an 8 in this dress! I might spend the money to get the dress altered because I love the color (a little lighter than the picture) and the style of the dress so much but I won't be able to wear it to the event that I intended.

The dress fits quite true to size. I usually wear 4 in dresses and this one fits well. The colour is a very soft blush pink and the material is so light and it really does flow. The downside to such a delicate and lightweight material (silk chiffon) is that it had so many wrinkles when it arrived in the mail. Also, keep in mind the length of the dress, it is really long (34inches from the waist). I'm 5'7 and it's still too long for me with 4 inch heels. But overall, I really like this dress and I look forward to wearing it on my special day!
