tried to make it work
this dress is so pretty; I ordered two trying to make it work. The first was too big and the second (8) was better but still just didn't fit right on the top. I tried every strapless bra, push up etc but it still just didn't fit me. Very sad because I liked it, very comfortable except for the top not fitting. So disappointed!

By both appearance on the site and the description, this dress was one I would have designed for myself for my daughter's daytime wedding in October. It arrived stuffed into a small plastic bag and in a wrinkled ball. To be fair, the wrinkles fell out when the dress was hung. The skirt mesh was not as structured as I expected but the top was the real issue. It has built in cups like a bathing suit but when adjusted properly to fit, the small corded straps pulled the cups up so tightly that the material rolled over on itself. Three different strapless bras did not help. I am not large in the chest but the V-neck was deep and the lace gapped. No adjustments could make it fit properly and believe me, I tried every way as I loved the silhouette and the fact that it had sleeves and would be age appropriate.

Beautiful, but disappointing
I have ordered several dresses from BHLDN and have been pleased with all of them. As such, I had high expectations for this dress. When it arrived and I tried it on it was indeed beautiful and true to size, yet it just didn't have that feeling of being "the dress," if you know what I mean. In addition, although the detail is lovely, I was surprised that the dress wasn't a bit more luxurious especially given the price of nearly $400. I have ordered less expensive dresses that surpass the quality of the material used in this dress. Although I am disappointed in the dress, it fits well enough to do for an event I have in less than two weeks. I will be keeping it for the sake of convenience. However, I can't say I recommend this dress. Although it is beautiful, the quality just isn't worth the price.
