loving everything about this dress
i was lucky enough to try this on at bhldn's recent nyc trunk show. this dress is like a dream come true for those who want something traditional AND atypical. i am 5'8", small chested, narrow waisted, with fairly broad shoulders and not-so-long legs. i tried on a 4, and the dress made me feel slim, tall and elegant (and not like a linebacker, which is a rarity). the dress was a little long on me with 2" heels, but i am sure it could easily be shortened at the waist. otherwise, it fit beautifully. the swiss dot pattern is subtle and does not take away from the lace at all, and it does not make it feel "granny", as i feared it would based on some of the stock photos. it also looks great with or without a veil (i tried it on with the curving periphery veil, and the combination was a knockout, however a little too formal for me). this dress is such a win and i won't ever stop drooling over it!

This dress is lovely on the model but does not work on a super pear shape like me. Luckily the return policy is really easy so it's worth to try it. I did find though that the dress doesn't look as expensive as it is, and like many of their other dresses, it looks like a lovely nightgown. Would be nice for a small gathering on someone tall and slim, but may raise some eyebrows with older family members. The color is a beautiful champagne and the dotted tulle is to die for.

I am in love...
...with this dress! It's delicate, light, etheral and just gorgeous. It's so different than any other dress I looked at or tried on. I think the ideal body type for this dress is that of the model wearing it above but that being said, I'm short (5'3") and a pretty curvy and it still works! Ran a little smaller than I expected - I would get one size larger than what you'd normally buy...
I can't wait to wear this beauty!

Unique and So Beautiful
I am so beyond excited to wear this dress to my July wedding.
It is so stunning and unlike any other dress I have ever seen.
The fit is very true to size, forgiving and will look amazing on both thin and curvy women.
