I was disappointed in this dress. I wanted to wear it for my bridal rehearsal, but when it arrived I noticed that the chiffon material was shimmery and crunchy to the touch, and the bodice was thick and stiff (basically the quality felt similar to a halloween costume). I assumed it would be nice, since it's so cute in the picture and was fairly expensive. But it was shipped back the next day.

pretty but creates a boxy shape.
this dress is so light and pretty, but the fit is bizarre. it has little shape to it, so creates a boxy look. i am 5'3" and a size 6, a little busty with a small waist and average to fuller hips (so an hourglass figure), but this dress made me look 10 lbs heavier, squat and not at all shapely. i am sad about it because it is so sweet and would have been perfect for my elopement. maybe it would be better on less busty girls or tall, very slim girls. i give it a 3 because the tailoring appeared very nice and it may work for others body type, it just didn't for mine.

Perfect informal outdoor wedding dress!
I disagree wholeheartedly with the above reviewer about this dress appearing cheap. On the contrary, I ordered nine dresses online (most of them from bhldn!) and this dress fit the bill, both in quality and fit. The satin bodice is fully lined and felt substantial, and the sheer material for the straps and skirt was silky and gorgeous. I was looking for a dress that I could wear both for a casual outdoor wedding in a pacific NW park and to a formal dinner. This was perfect.
I did have to get the shoulder straps tailored to make it fit "just right". However, this was a small price to pay for a lovely dress.

This dress looks beautiful in the picture and we thought it would be perfect for my daughter to wear as a bridesmaid in her sister's wedding. But the dress is very cheap looking and did not look good on. It looked like a dress you would expect to pay, maybe $50 for, not $200, and not the quality we wanted for a bridesmaid's dress. returned it the same day.
