Ava Maxi Dress
This dress is so simple and wonderful! I did get it fitted to my body, mostly because I have a very short torso and most dresses don't fit me, so I expected to get it fitted. I had an outdoor wedding and it worked perfeclty. When I had it hemmed I had it left longer in the back so it had a little bit of a train without feeling like I would trip all the time.
Love the dress! got so many compliments : )

Just got this dress to wear for my "farm" wedding...After reading the reviews I decided to buy it in a size 0 even though the chart says I am a size 2. So glad I did! It fits perfect. I couldn't be happier with this wonderful dress. Yes, the sleeves are a bit different from the picture but I think they are just fine. It is low cut and finding a bra may be a bit of a challenge but for the price and the look of this dress it's worth it! Now if BHLDN would just have more affordable shoes to buy! I will not pay more for my shoes than my dress!

Wore this for my casual morning hilltop wedding. It was the perfect dress for me. No alterations needed, airy, light, and it felt amazing. It is low cut in the front and back and you will need some kind of a specialty adhesive bra and fashion tape to keep it together, though. Still, I loved it and it has a distinct Jane Austen/regency vibe. Bought it at the clearance price and I couldn't be happier. Thank you bhldn!

Close but not quite there
I bought this dress to wear for my casual winery wedding this far. As another reviewer pointed out below, the bust area of the slip is really really low. I bought size 2 and it fit everywhere else okay. But I don't see how you can make it work with a bra with the slip. The pictures on the website are a bit misleading in that sense. The sleeves are alot longer, too. They covered most of the upper arm. You will have to sew it up to have it stay up as pictured.
All in all, not a bad dress but not quite what I was hoping for...
