soo much bigger than expected
I live in Colombia so for me it was really important to have the right size for this beautiful dress. I contacted someone at BHLD (who has been very helpful), to find the right size according to my measures. Normally I am a size 4, but this dress was way too big. I had it changed to a size 2. I am waiting for my new dress, because it is stunning. I advice you to go for a dress one size (even two, if you are small and skinny) smaller than usual. And enjoy it because it is beautiful.

I bought this dress very last minute as a reception dress for my wedding. I'm 5'4" about 115 lbs, and got the 0. Overall the fit was okay, not clingy, but definitely still showed my small curves. My only gripe is that the dress did not lay flat along the back of my neck. It was extremely comfortable and great for dancing during the reception.

Size down - this dress is enormous and much longer than you think!
I purchased this dress in a size 0 - I am 5'2 and 103 lbs. Even though I knew this brand ran slightly larger, I did not expect it to be so big! The shoulders and torso were quite roomy, and the length was surprisingly long.
The sleeves were actually longer than cap sleeves and the length of the dress was so long it hit my knees. The photos by BHLDN were very misleading regarding the fit. I really expected the dress to be short and cute!
The tulle material and details on the corded lace are beautiful though - I might consider keeping the dress and having it tailored as the design is exquisite. I really wanted it to fit like the photos! But I also don't want to spend a lot of additional money on alterations, especially as this is already quite expensive for a reception dress. Perhaps it would be more flattering on curvier ladies with longer legs. Since I am quite petite and have a straight body, the dress only weighed me down and looked huge on my frame.
Overall, I was utterly disappointed by the fit of this dress. Unfortunately, as I usually fit exactly into 0 or 00, there was no room to size down further. Definitely order a smaller size if you are considering this dress.

The dress itself if very beautiful - i love the light pink that peeks through and the lace is very high quality. Unfortunately, this dress was huge. I'm 5'2 and 103lbs and the size zero seemed more like a size four. I regretfully returned it and urge others to order a full size (or two sizes) down.
