Rated 4 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer Great Dress
Though this is not the dress I'm choosing to wear for my wedding, I'm very glad I ordered it. As most brides can attest, finding the right dress is a journey that begins with certain ideas and desires. Along that journey, those ideas tend to change and clarify and become refined. I was attracted to this dress because it felt non-traditional but special. It IS both of those things. However, on me it felt much more "Princess" than "Queen." This may not be the case for other women - but it did help me realize that what I want is more traditional than I first thought. On me it had more of "bridesmaid" vibe than "bride." The color was a bit off for my medium-fair skin tone, and the waistline is not as flattering as I'd like for my big day. As far as fit goes, I am normally a size 6 but with a 36D bra size. I ordered a size 8 and it fit really well. I probably would have made a few small alterations to refine the fit in the bodice, and definitely would have shortened it (I'm 5' 8"). The beadwork is as as beautiful as pictured, and the zipper on the dress I tried was a bit stiff and cranky. Otherwise, it is as expected.

Â by Verified Reviewer Brisa glimmers like a dream
I bought this dress at the BHLDN store as a wedding dress. I went there with several other dresses in mind - but this one blew me away when I tried it on. The bust glimmers. It is low cut but not extremely, and is very flattering. I'm 5'4", approximately 115 to 120 lbs and I normally wear a 2. The rib cage area of this dress is very small, so a 4 fit well. I need to get the top straps made smaller and the bottom of the dress shortened as I'm wearing flats on my wedding day, but for $370 that doesn't seem to be asking too much. I adore this dress.

Â by Verified Reviewer gorgeous dress :)
This was the very first dress I saw when we walked in to the store, and it was only the second dress I put on that day. I fell in love instantly, and I can't wait to wear it for my wedding next summer!
The top has just the right amount of bling, and the sequins have kind of an iridescent pink-ish sheen to them. Super gorgeous! And I love the flowy, looser-fitting bottom. I felt like a princess wearing the Brisa dress.
I'm 6'1" and 200 lbs... normally I wear a 12, but because I'm kinda smaller on top and more full in the hips I measured to be an 8 in this dress. And the length is PERFECT! No hemming necessary!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer Fits over baby bump nicely
I eloped at the beginning of summer and then we planned a ceremony for around Christmas and wouldn't you know I'll be 4 months pregnant at time of the ceremony. This dress is beautiful and fits over a small baby bump beautifully. I did buy a dress a size up and will need to hem it. The bottom of the dress is darker than a traditional wedding dress but will be beautiful for a fall or winter wedding look. The top fits the chest and hits the top of my ribs snugly and then just gets flowy down from there. It was hard trying to find a dress from BHLDN that could be worn while pregnant but this is it! It's so beautiful and romantic looking on, you can't tell I'm pregnant in this dress except when I turn to the side (and in normal clothes that is not the case)! i second the other reviewers on the zipper which sticks pretty badly around the waist band.
