Â by Verified Reviewer Beautiful, comfortable, unique dress!
I wore this dress for my city hall wedding and absolutely loved it! It was so comfortable and beautiful I didn't want to take it off at the end of the day.
The other reviewers are right, the dress is a circle skirt, and is not an A-line like the model shows in the picture. You may also need to get a seamstress to shorten the sides and fix the sleeves so that the lace lies flat. I did this and the cost was an extra $80 or so.
However, it was worth it! This is a gorgeous modern dress with a vintage feel and it made me feel so special on my wedding day.

I was looking for a short dress for my informal wedding. I was worried that the design would mean for a very loose front panel, but that wasn't the case. (No wardrobe malfunctions for me on my big day!) A small hidden hook at the neck secures the front, and the heavier weight of the layered skirt pulls the dress down. The lace pattern of small flowers in vine clusters feels very vintage without having one of those seventies-style gigantic flower prints. The cut of the dress - with the open back - is very flattering without being too provocative. I didn't have the problem the other reviewer had with the overly flared skirt, but I have a pear shape.
The waist on my dress was a bit bigger than the sizing chart advertised, but I don't think my shoulders would fit comfortably into a size smaller. The model is also probably very tall - I'm 5'6" and the V neck dips further on my breast bone and hits a little lower below my knees.
One other difference from the image - I have a bit of loose ruching at the shoulders on my dress - the model's seems to lie flat.
All in all though, it's a dress that allows me to be sufficiently "bridal" while comfortable enough to dance the night away.

... but the fit was way larger than expected. Since I ordered this dress from Europe I consulted a BHLDN Stylist before ordering. Lisa was super helpful and answered all questions - big thumbs up for the support. Even though we discussed my measurements, the dress was too large when it arrived. Its also longer than it looks in the picture (or maybe I am just especially short?) which means it now has a really odd length. The dress itself is very comfy and pretty though, I do however agree with the other review that the skirt flares out more than in the picture.
Since I had to pay an additional $150 import taxes on the dress I'll keep it and see what the dressmaker can make out of this. Overall I am not happy with this purchase.

First off..props to BHLDN for the earlier than expected shipping. My wedding is June 10th and I plan on wearing this as my wedding dress so time is of the essence! Like I said the dress is beautiful. The material is comfortable and not irritating at all. It's a very subtle and classy looking little dress. The only thing I'm pretty bummed about is the fact that the model in the photos seems to be holding the dress in the back to maybe make it fit better. By doing this it doesn't show how much this dress actually flares out. That's what I liked about it to begin with. Its a short dress that doesn't poof out! Or so I thought. In a way I feel like it's deceitful and makes the dresses fit look much different than what you're actually getting. Its nothing my seamstress can't handle though. (hopefully)
