I came to BHLDN to buy short dress for my wedding but none of them looked elegant on me. Margeaux gown caught my eye and the minute I put it on I knew this is my dress. I wear 4 in most of the brands and size 4 was perfect for this dress as well ( I will need padded bra for better support and to fill up the top). It's very elegant, very comfortable and hugs my body in all the right places. Material and color are perfect. Stunning dress and price is perfect as well. Great experience overall!

The first dress I tried on!
I saw this dress online but there is no store in the DC metro area. Luckily I was going to Houston to visit family and surprise, surprise, there was a store in Houston. I tried a size 8 instead of what I thought was my right size (6) and it was too big, not realizing that it is recommended that you size down from your real size. I asked the consultant for a size 4 and it fit like a glove! My sister was there with me and we both decided that I had found my dress. The fabric is so soft and better than the usual ugly, hard/coarse wedding dress fabrics that make you sweat. It is simple and mature especially for someone like me who dislikes fussy dresses and is having a very simple wedding. I ordered the dress right away and it came in less than 5 days. The garment bag reeks! I will tie a bronze sash round my waist for some color and definition. The wedding consultant was helpful and friendly. Good experience all around.

Beautiful lace dress
I tried this gown on at a recent BHLDN trunk show only because the girl helping us encouraged us to just try it. It didn't look like much on the hanger, but was beautiful on, specially with a belt to define the waist and a veil. The fit is SO flattering, the lace is beautiful and aligns well along the princess seams running vertical in the dress and the contrast between the blush lining and cream lace overlay is gorgeous. The length was perfect for me in flats, although I could add heels easily and the dress would still look lovely. I ended up ordering the dress in a 00, #I'm 5'6" and 105lbs) after comparing my measurements to their suggested sizes, and my measurements were
According to BLHDN, a 00 should fit
My only two complaints are the dress is MUCH larger than the measurements stated it should be, I have at least 2 inches of extra fabric in the hips and bust, and at least 5 inches of extra fabric in the waist. So I will need to tailor it more than I expected I would. Secondly, it arrived in a bag which reeks of cheap plastic. Embalmed bodies smell better. A quality linen or cotton bag would be much preferable and wouldn't cause your dress, your skin and your home to smell like formaldehyde.
I will be keeping the dress, because its a gorgeous, high quality dress and with some alterations it will be perfect for our summer church wedding and garden reception. I'm so glad I tried this on, despite it doing nothing for me on the rack.

A pleasant surprise!
I wasn't even going to try this dress on but added it to my list since it was under my budget. What a surprise! This dress was gorgeous in person! The lace is so beautiful and it really hugs your curves. I ended up purchasing it in my size and can't wait until it comes in the mail. The only thing I may have altered if the top somehow. The sample size was a 4 and it seemed to not be as long as the other dresses, which I liked. My measurements are 32/25/34.
