Lovely as a bridal gown
This was the most "bridal" of all the BHLDN gowns I tried on. White, floofy, flowy. . . the top fits like a dream and the flowy bottom is delightful. Paired with a colorful or sparkly sash, it's a total winner; AND it looks great with a topper.
I opted for something a little more form fitting as this dress made me feel a bit bigger than some of the others, but it was a solid option - especially at this amazing price.

Winter Wedding - Perfect for Me and My Bridesmaids!
I had been to a few bridal salons and couldn't find anything I was in love with.... I brought my fiance with me once and he didn't care for any of the "fancy" dresses lol. We were browsing BHLDN and he saw this one and LOVED it, so we ordered it because it was so affordable! It came in and was perfect! My bridesmaids got the same dress, but in Mayan Blue. So simple and classy. Loved it! Highly recommend.
Side Note: I am 5'7" and 145lbs and I wore the size 4 (I ordered 4 and 6). Definitely runs big.

Pretty but low quality
I was so excited to receive this dress but when I put it on it felt stiff and not as "airy" as I'd expected. The top just doesn't fit me well, it's not form-fitting but rather just limply sits on you. I'm a very average body type, 36-28-38 and I bought the 4. I normally wear a 6 but the 4 was even a bit too loose. The tulle is a bit scratchy (but I'm picky about fabrics). You can see your underwear through the dress. The dress is pretty but I'm disappointed in the quality.
I think I'll return this dress and be on the lookout for something more comfortable and more flattering.

my perfect dress, not so great customer service
I bought this dress for my intimate June wedding. This was the first dress I loved in pictures and then loved even more once I tried it on. It's perfect if you're looking for a dress without all the bells and whistles. I'm a size 6 and a 6 fit perfectly, granted I am smaller on top, 34A. I'm taking off the belt that comes with it and got an opal beaded belt from BHLDN. I'm 5'8" and planning on wearing flats so I got the front shortened just a little and kept the back the original length to add somewhat of a train. Great dress!
The reason for marking off 1 star is you should be warned the dress DOES NOT come with a garment bag. No matter what the sales person says in store it will come wrapped in plastic. I read reviews about this and made sure when I placed my order over the phone that a garment bag would come with it. It didn't! If they had just told me from the beginning that a garment bag wouldn't come I would have had one ready instead of having it hang in my closet for a few weeks while I ordered one and waited for it to be shipped! Don't try calling customer service bc they'll just tell you this dress doesn't come with a garment bag and they'll put you on a list for someone to call you back, and they never do. Sad that even when I purchase a less than $100 coat I have something to store it in, but for my wedding dress I'm left high and dry....
