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....

Amazing dress for the price!
I currently live in Korea and after finding out they only really hire gowns here I had to resort to buying something online. I came acrosss BHLDN and found this dress...I couldn't believe how much it was! I was confused with what size to buy as people had wrote varying comments. I decided to order my usual dress size as I am bigger on the bottom. Huge mistake! It was way too big and fell off me. I am a UK size 10 on top ( uk bra size 34b) and UK size 12 on the bottom. I bought the US dize 6 dress (uk size 10) but i could have easily gone down at least 2 dress sizes. It was slightly too big on my bottom half too. I couldn't return it as i didnt have long until my wedding so just got it tailored.
On the day, it did slide down slightly so I should have tit taped it up really! All in all, I love the dress and for the price it was amazing :)
I matched my dress with a feather collar that I had custom made from Hausoftrashglam on Etsy. She matched it perfectly to the design of my ring and it went so well with my dress.

Elegant and versatile
This dress was perfect even for my February church wedding. It can dress up or dress down so easily. I bought the size 12 and 14 and returned the 12 because the 14 fit me like a dream with no alterations. I tied the supersoft tulle into a bow because I liked that look, but toyed with doing it several ways. If you're a low budget-bride like I was, I'd pick this dress again in a heartbeat. And if your bridal party has a little more to work with I would have LOVED this in color for bridesmaids!

I got married on the beach and ordered this dress in an off white. Wow the dress is perfection and so flattering. I didn't think I could get away with wearing a strapless (I am a busty gal 38 ddd) ordered 2 sizes up from my street size. I wore it with one shoulder (see the dress in the silver/grey color). The dress is extra long so that was the only alteration I needed done. I felt smug because the dress appeared as though it cost me $$$. It was very comfortable. I wore a strapless bra and a high waist shaper with built in panty. I look forward to an excuse to order this dress in a diff color so I can wear it again!
