Too short for tall women
I really wanted to love this dress. I flew up to Seattle because I couldn't get an appointment in Los Angeles. It's a simple dress, but that's what I wanted- timeless and classy. I also bought a lace cover up and beaded belt. When the dress came, it was definitely too short. My only option would be to wear flats.
Also, as others have commented, the seems show. My mom took one look at it and I could see the disappointment on her face. She did not like it at all. My mom is not a fashionista so to have her comment on the seams and overall quality of the dress, said a lot.
If you are looking for a simple dress and are under 5'6", this would probably be a great option for the price point. Others who posted real wedding pictures here- the dress looks amazing on you. Unfortunately for me, it just didn't work.

I would wear it everyday if I could!
I thought the dress was wonderful! I am 5'6, 120 lb, and a 36D cup. The dress fit wonderfully for me! I orginally had a size 6 and had it altered down to a 2 (yay yoga for losing weight for the wedding!) and it went splendid. We added a little boning to it, so make sure it didn't wrinkle near my stomach. I felt like an angel in my dress, and I can't wait to find some way to wear it again.

Photo is misleading, very cheap looking
Unless you're getting photoshop on all your wedding photos, I don't understand getting this dress. The seems are totally exposed, and looks like something that would come out of a Forever 21 bridal department. Not smooth AT ALL, as indicated by this photo. Better dresses at similar style.

First of all kudos to BHLDN staff who helped me all the way from Afghanistan, while serving, to figure out - based on my measurements - which gown would be best suited for me. I ordered 6 and tried them all on upon returning home (return policy is OUTSTANDING). Although I did have to have it altered (my bust wasnâ??t full enough so added cups) after that it fit like a dream. I typically wear a 6-8, and a 6 fit me almost perfectly (runs maybe 1/2 - 1 size big). Itâ??s simple yet classic and was a huge hit. I had it cut-off and turned into a cocktail dress to wear for years to come. It was stunning and made me feel like the bride I never thought I could be.
