I recently purchased this dress for my July wedding. I loved it instantly when I tried it on. My wedding is small, low-key, and will be in a garden area of a chapel... I felt this was super fitting and so me. The rose printed lace is even more beautiful in person.
However, my figure is nothing like the model's here and the dress looks different on me. That's ok! Just pointing it out. For one, I am short (5'2" ish) so the "tea length" dress goes to my ankles, ha. I am going to get it altered to be a high-low cut. Also I have large breasts and an hour glass figure so it just sits on my body differently... I like it. It looks elegant, sexy and unique. I had to order a size larger than I wear, (at the time of purchase that was the only one left in the store and there were no more in my size range online/in their inventory). But that is fine because I am getting it altered when I take the length up.
My only complaint is the side zipper is plastic and seems cheaply made. It gets stuck when I try to zip the dress. The woman helping me at the fitting was able to get it up (though it took her a while and she really had to yank hard), but mom and I couldn't when we got it to my home... so I am getting the zipper replaced at alterations with a metal zipper. But you would think an $800 dress would zip better. All-in-all that is a small thing though.

As mentioned by another reviewer, this has got to be one of BHLDN's best made dresses. The flower lace is actually 3-dimensional, with roses sewn on top of roses - it's divine to look at. The transparency of the skirt is not a problem for evening wear, as my legs must be close in color to the lining.
I am 5'9" in bare feet, 34D-29-40. The 8 fit almost perfectly, although I am somewhat long-waisted, so to get the waist and hips settled, I extended the straps, which caused the top to gap a little - a quick set of darts to tighten it up would have done the trick. There are some cups sewn in, but I still wanted to wear a bra (not going to show if demi-cup). The skirt is longer than I expected (the model must be 6' tall) - I was hoping for mid-calf, but it was more like midway between mid-calf and ankle - neither short nor long. Not sure how hemming would work because of the lace edge - it might be easier to detach the skirt at the waist and reconstruct it before reattaching to the bodice.

This dress is gorgeous: beautiful fabric, fitted--true to size. Perfect for curvy women. I'm 5'4, 34D with curvy hips and the 6 fit like a glove on top and at waist. It falls a bit longer on me than on the taller model from the photos. I found that, compared to other gowns from BHLDN, it feels very authentic and well-made.

I tried on the sample (too small) but knew it was going to be great. Very pretty, almost considered it for wedding dress (Playa del Carmen), but, found another gorgeous dress for the wedding at Bhldn, so, will wear this to the welcome dinner, and, perhaps another celebration in the states
