Cascading Goddess Gown
Beautiful, but not for me
I bought this dress at the Chicago store and fell in love with it! It fit really nicely off the rack, other than the straps do run very long. But, after I looked back at photos of me wearing it, I realized the darting in the bust-line wasn't very even, there was a noticeable dip on one side of the bustline and since I'm larger on top it would have been very obvious with the dress on, so ultimately I canceled my order. I really loved the dress and it's beautiful, maybe it would be less noticeable on someone with a smaller chest.

My dream wedding dress!
I LOVE LOVE this dress. When I got the dress I ordered a 0 because I am small, but I had to get a 2 for around my rib cage. I fell in love with the bottom layers and I found an amazing seamstress to shorten each piece for me to recreate it so that you can see the tule. I also had the waist taken in and the straps shortened a little. I am 5'4" and 105 lbs, 32" bust-25" waist. I am 5'4". I got the same shoes as the photo. I really can't imagine wearing anything else. The feel and quality of this dress blew me away.

Nothing about this dress fit me. I'm usually a size 8 in anthropologie clothes so I expected this dress to at least fit my waist.... It was huge. The straps, the length, everything. Of course, all wedding dresses need to be tailored so its not really a big deal. The potential was there.
The material is top quality and once my tailor tweaked and cut this for me, it turned out to be so beautiful. The material is so soft and comfortable. I'm stoked to wear this down the aisle next week!

i had a feeling this would be my favorite dress, and after trying on a few at the bhldn chicago location, it was definitely the one. the sample was in a size 8, which had to be clipped, but i was told by my wonderful stylist that the 6 would fit me perfectly (it's on the way, so i hope so, too!). i'm about 5'9" and 140 lbs and plan to wear flats, so it'll have to be hemmed, but otherwise was very flattering, comfortable, and perfect for my style.
