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.

Classic Couture Adaptable
Dress falls beautifully all over the right curves. The style of the dress is adaptable and a bit challenging to find the right accessories, but it is well worth the hunt. I'm shying away from the Gatsby style for the day of and embracing a softer and more global look.
This dress is ideal for tall girls and looks good on most bust sizes. I have an athletic build with a strait waste, making it a great option for me.
Can't wait to pull it all together in a few weeks!

Beautiful dress, I loved wearing it!!
I really loved wearing this dress at my wedding a couple of weeks ago! It made me feel amazing, and I got so many lovely comments on it on the day.
This dress is just beautiful - The outer dress is like a very fine net material, in a warm champagne colour, with the metallic sequin and bead detail, and the inner slip is silk in beigey/gold. It hangs and moves beautifully and really does make you feel special.
I wasn't too sure about ordering as I am in the UK, so getting the correct size was a consideration, plus the import taxes, but I took my measurements and went for it. I wasn't disappointed! The dress came in just 3 days - great service from BHLDN. (They were also very helpful when I had questions before ordering.) It was well packaged and came in a lovely BHLDN dress cover. The only thing to note here for UK customers is the import taxes - I think I paid between Â£250-Â£300 as an additional cost to the dress and p&p, which was fine as I had included this in the overall budget, so was totally worth it to get the right dress. There is nothing like BHLDN in the UK that I could find.
I am usually a UK 10-12 on top and UK 12 on the bottom, and the US size 8 was right for me (I compared my measurements to those given on the website), including the length. There is room in the bottom half of the dress if you are bigger around the hips, like me, it just means that the slip is closer fitting.
As others have commented, the slip is not the best in terms of quality or construction, but I got some good nude underwear and it was fine (Good underwear is essential as the dress is quite unforgiving due to the thin material and colour!). The only annoying thing is that the slip moves around and goes a bit off centre at the bottom half so you have to keep adjusting it to make sure it sits ok for photos. I also had to sew it slightly at the top of the slit to make sure it matched up with the slit length of the outer dress. The straps on the slip are adjustable, which is really useful so you can make sure it sits ok at the bust and waist. There are also small string tabs on the inside of the outer dress to secure the two layers together at the shoulders, which helps the slip straps stay in place.
It's great to see from other people's photos that this dress suits so many different people and styles of wedding. I would say if you are considering it, go for it!
Thanks BHLDN for a great experience, and thanks to all previous reviewers for helping me in my decision! LOVED this dress!!!
