This dress is absolutely perfect! At first when I saw it on the model I wasn't very much convinced, but in person and when I tried it on, I knew immediately it was the one. It fit perfectly. I am petite 5 ft, 95lbs. Size 2 was a little bit tight so I bought the size 4, the only thing I had to alter was the length. I got so many compliments! Perfect for my outdoor wedding!

I did the most ridiculous thing and ordered this dress sight unseen. I learned from previous reviews that it was flattering for most body types and trusted the sizing chart. I am a natural dress size 10-12 and ordered the size 10. THE DRESS WAS PERFECT. It stretched in the right places and molded itself to my body. It was a joy to wear!! My wedding was at 7 pm and I wore it from about 6:30pm to around 2am (things got crazy). It was amazingly comfortable. I didn't even wear anything underneath! The only thing I'll say is that it is a SLIGHTLY different shade in person. The lighting in the picture makes it much more sepia and it ended up a bit pinker at the bottom. But it's such a beautiful blush pink. Also, I am almost 5'10" and the length was perfect for me wearing a 2" heel. It might be long on anyone shorter. The sequin and rhinestone details are gorgeous and the tulle just flows out around you. I fully expected to destroy it as it looked so fragile and my wedding was outdoors, but I made it through the wedding, drinks back at the hotel and then out on the town and it's still pristine. This dress made me feel so gorgeous, comfortable, ethereal and romantic. It made my day. Thank you so much!

Â by Verified Reviewer Loved it!
I loved loved loved wearing this gown. I was looking for something less traditional and found it in this dress. It 100% looks better on in person than it does on the model. So many people wanted to know if it was vintage and where I got it. Most importantly, I felt spectacular in it and it was a beautiful part of our amazing day!

I unfortunately started my dress shopping experience at a big name bridal store. It was, to be short, terrible! I am self conscious about my size and weight. I have a very hourglass figure (of which I am grateful for) but am disproportionality large in the bust (165lbs, size 12-14, 36 G bust). The folks that were "helping" me at the the big name store made specific comments about the areas of my body that I was most self conscious about. Not only that, but they kept trying to fit me into dresses that were way too small for my figure which just made me feel worse. I was embarrassed and extremely discouraged by the whole process.
I did some searching online after my bad experience. I was afraid to go back into a place to try anything on but I came across the Cate gown and FELL IN LOVE with the color and detail! It has the sweetest feminine quality about it. The beading is lovely, the detail is gorgeous, and the color was just so unique! So I took a chance and drove to the Chicago store (all of the way from Ann Arbor, MI). The staff there was beyond fabulous. They made me feel at ease and had the dress ready for me to try on in my size (a true size 12, not bridal size). It was perfect. I could not be happier to be writing this review. I cannot thank them enough for making me feel beautiful in such a glorious, soft, and pretty dress. This dress was light and airy, perfect for my May wedding!
Even if this particular dress is not for you, I still HIGHLY recommend visiting a BHLDN location when looking for a gown. Their customer service was impeccable! XOXO
