Beautiful, but small in the bust
This dress is absolutely gorgeous, a stunning color, and hangs beautifully. I wore it for my (casual) wedding and it could work for so many other events. But I had to buy it 3 times to find the right size! I'm narrow in the hips but wide in the bust and shoulders...typically wear a 4 on the bottom and a 4 or 6 on top...needed a 10 in this dress. (It was worth it, but if you're larger on top you might start at least a size up.)

The Perfect Fit
As a wedding and event planner I knew I wanted to find the perfect dress for my own wedding. My only issue was my bridesmaids ranged from 5' to 6' and a B cup to a DD cup. However, my issue was solved when I stumbled across the Niceties Dress! The dress fit all 4 of my girls perfectly and I received more compliments on how wonderful they looked and the fabulous color than I have ever heard about bridesmaids dresses. Thank you BHLDN for creating this amazing dress!

I got my dress today. I had an impromptu black tie event sprung on me. I found out about it last Thursday, I found this dress, placed an order and it came in today(3 days with a weekend) it fits perfectly, slightly tight in the bust but I prefer that in a strapless dress, plus the added internal bra strap adds extra support ( I wear a 34 DD bra so that wasn't a suprise). The color is really unique and very grown up, I was worried that I (now 30) would look like a teenager going to the prom in a "black tie" gown, but it is very elegant and just what I wanted. In 2 1/2" heels it still touchscreen the floor although I'm 5 10" tall, and moves beautifully. Absolutely stunning!

I purchased this dress from the Chicago store for my 10 year anniversary celebration/ photo shoot this Fall. This gown is even lovelier in person than in the photos. It is the perfect shade of dusty grey that I was looking for. The top has a built in bra that fits pretty well (but I am smaller on top, so I might need a little more help up there), and it fits perfectly everywhere else. I am 5'9" , 125 lbs, and I ordered a size 2. The Size 4 was a little loose on top. The length is very long & can easily be altered if you are shorter. With 2" heels, the bottom just skims the floor.
The dress comes with the grey sash (as pictured), but I would recommend getting a contrasting belt or sash to define the waistline. I tried on the Collected Stars Sash, which works well if you want a little sparkle.
The Chicago store did not have the size 2 in grey in store, so they sent it to my home address free of charge! I received it in 3 days, and I didn't have to worry about bringing it home on the plane. Love it!
