Breathtaking Details! I felt like a Queen!
I don't even know where to begin! I was a bit nervous ordering my gown online without trying it onâ?¦ But when it arrived I was absolutely speechless! The color was slightly darker in person then it seems online, but I actually liked that more. It does, however, photograph the way it looks online.
There is no way to understand the detail and exquisite nature of this gorgeous dress without seeing it in person. You will not be disappointed! I am 5'4" and 100 pounds â?? the size fit like a charm. It was only ever so slightly roomier than anticipated but I added a small sash in the back to cinch it into my waist using the 2" of fabric that I hemmed off the bottom edge. BHLDN was incredible to work with and made everything a breeze.
My wedding was six months ago and people still cannot stop talking about the dress! Best. Decision. Ever.

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!!!!
