My search for a dress hasn't been easy. I knew I wanted a sheath gown but struggled to find something that was both form fitting + sophisticated + comfortable. I ordered this on a whim after my initial order of (5) gowns. I thought for the price, it was worth a try, thinking I would be sending it back quickly as well. When my sister zipped it up, we knew. I hadn't even seen a mirror and she squealed! This gown not only looks amazing with curves (I'm a street size 8-10 and never thought I could pull off a sheath) but it's equally as comfortable. I wore it for an hour that night! It's the kind of gown that doesn't "wear you", rather just enhances your body and makes you feel like a bride. Love is an understatement! I'm dying to wear it and sad to wait till January.
I will have to have it altered a bit but for the sale price I am fine with that. My only complaint is that there isn't more of a train. Other than that, as all of my bridesmaids have confirmed, "it looks JUST like you, as a bride!"

Simple, classic, flattering
I bought this dress as soon as it went on sale. When it finally arrived, I knew it was it. I'd imagined wearing something all lace, but I was really happy with the elegant, simplicity of this dress. Plus it is very flattering, very form fitting. I did have to get the top altered, it was too big. I also had the layer beneath the skirt loosened as it was hard to walk in.

This was my wedding dress and I loved it.
Although I agree, the dress runs large, after alterations and ordering a size down it worked brilliantly. I am usually a size 6 and ordered a 4 as recommended and it was still slightly large. it fit alright in the hips but not so much up top. I loved the lace details and the swanky train. I got many compliments on the dress and felt very happy with it! I tagged a few pictures of the dress on BHDLN's facebook page as well. Hope this helps!

This is it!
I was apprehensive about ordering a gown online, but the other reviews and sizing guides are accurate. I ordered a 6 based on my measurements 37-29-39. The waist and hips fit perfectly. The bust is large and I will need a combination of cups sewn in and it taken in a bit to get the correct fit. I was worried this was a dress for a skinny person but the fabric is the perfect weight, not too heavy but doesn't show every lump and bump either. Lightweight spanx should be fine. The color is a nice ivory that looks great with my lighter skin tone and the contrast of white lace. I still need to meet with my tailor, but I'm wondering what others have done for a bustle for dancing?
