Gorgeous, glamorous dress
I bought this dress in the summer of 2012 for my October 2013 wedding because I was so scared it would sell out before then! I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it.
Since I ordered it online, I spent quite a bit of time taking measurements and researching the fit, and BHLDN stylist Angela was very helpful recommending my size and possible undergarment combos. (I'm a 38 inch hip, 28 inch waist, and roughly 34.5 inch bust, so I went with a size 6)
Since the dress is pretty sheer, it took me a few trips to the mall to find the right combination (nude seamless waist to mid-thigh spanx on the bottom and a clear sticky backless/strapless bra on top).
Despite the fact that it's sheer, the dress has a pretty forgiving shape - I didn't have to make any alterations. The slip had a tendency to move around when I walked (so the slits weren't aligned), but that was really only a problem (and an easily corrected one) when I took pictures.
I loved wearing this dress on my wedding day - I didn't want to take it off!

Definition of Perfect!
I'm in Australia and ordered this dress online, I had done a lot of research on this dress (featured in blog posts, website, real weddings...) and read all the reviews before deciding to buy it. I'm prepared but the moment I opened the box, it took my breath away!!!
I'm only 5f1", have flat chest, I'm normall in size 6-8 AUS and got size 2, thought it might not look good on me but it turned out this dress truly has such a magical fitting power. I had a 3.5" heels and only got the back taken in a little to show the waist a bit more. I left the length as it is since I want to keep all the stunning details.
If you're oversea, be prepared that it may cost a lot more than the actual price. In Australia, apart from the shipping cost, I had to pay fair amount of tax as well.
Overall, I think you can't go wrong with this dress.

Loved loved loved!
I loved wearing this dress! It was the first dress I tried on and I ordered it online. I'm 5'2" and had the bottom mesh part cut.. Still a bit long but it was manageable with 3.5" heels. I ordered a size 2 and I'm a regular 4.I def wore spanx-the dress is very sheer and a bit unforgiving for big booty girls but the spanx helped a lot. I got sooooo many compliments. Dress is so comfortable too. It's more of a gold color in person but it photographs more silvery. Just Loved it!! If you're looking for something a bit different-- go
For this dress!!!!

fit like a glove
i ordered this gown and the leona gown and had to choose this one because it fit so perfectly. i am 5'5" and 125 lbs and the size 4 fit like a glove. i don't even have to get it tailored. i will probably get a little taken off the bottom up to the sequins so it doesn't drag on the floor. it is perfect for my vintage /rustic themed wedding in june. it is a bit see-through so i will need nude undies. fyi-the returning process is very easy and painless so if you are hesitating because of that- do not worry.
