Queen Anne Dress
I bought this dress right when it went on sale and returned the one I had planned to wear for my wedding. I am 5'7" 120 lbs 34c bust 26 inch waist, and the size 4 fit perfectly with no alterations required. I also wore the firefly sash instead of the gold sash it came with, and it made the dress extra sparkly and special. I plan to wear this dress when we go out to dinner on anniversaries. It is so feminine and flirty. The lace detail and thin gold thread throughout make this dress feel especially glamorous and darling.

I fell in love with this dress the first time I saw it, and when it went on sale I knew I had to get it before I couldn't! The dress arrived in a timely fashion, in a very unassuming box. I encountered one issue with the dress, the thin piece of string that holds the ribbon at the correct height was ripped. The sizing on the dress is very bizarre! I measured myself according to the fit guide, and I came in at a 12. I am usually a 6, sometimes a 4, but I am very busty. The dress fits my bust very well, but is pretty big everywhere else, especially the lace part above the sweetheart neckline. I will definitely have to get the dress taken in. But for the price, it is a steal! Also, the photo makes the dress look like it is knee length, it is not! The dress comes to my mid-calf, but perhaps this is a sizing issue?

Queen Anne Sizing
I ordered the Queen Anne dress - which is absolutely stunning, but unfortunately it fits MUCH bigger than anticipated.
I am petite, I ordered a size 0, which should fit (according to the measurements) if not be a bit snug, and I feel like a little kid in my mum's dress.
It is beautiful, however I will have to get the entire dress altered as it doesn't fit at all.
I took a risk ordering it online, so I knew there was a chance it wouldn't fit perfectly, but I never expected it to be so huge.
Just a warning for all the petite ladies! Nothing against BHLDN. I love everything they have and they have been wonderful with all of my purchases.

I just received this dress about a week ago, and while it's very beautiful, it's going back. The gold lace is lovely, and I love the length. There is a petticoat underneath that fits a little odd on me. Pretty disappointed in the packaging - I realize I bought it on sale, but it came in a plastic bag in a beat up brown box. No pretty box, no ribbon. It leaves a lot to be desired when you're opening up your potential wedding dress!
