I felt very special in this dress!
I bought this dress in the LA BHLDN store. I usually wear a size 6-8 in dresses but this dress I had to order in a size 12. I'm bigger on top than on the bottom so I think that had a lot to do with it. I had to tailor it shorter, which was no big deal. It was slightly bigger than I needed but a size 10 would not fit and I figured with undergarments it would fit fine. But it was still a bit large. Overall, I loved the dress. It was gorgeous and at a price that I loved. I paired it with a belt and bracelet that I purchased from BHLDN as well.

so many compliments
The gown is absolutely beautiful in person. I ordered a 4 but could have gone with a 2. I had the bust taken in and cups sewn in. The zipper made me a little nervous as it was kinda sticky, but it all worked out! Shipped within a week to Canada!

Beautiful Dress- True To Size
After providing my measurements, BHDLN stylists recommended I order an 8. I stuck to my instincts, and ordered a 4 instead- since I wear a 4 in everything. It fit perfectly. I had some tulle taken out from the bottom to thin out the puffiness, and other small alterations. I'd tried to remove one or two of the terraces, but it ruined the romantic cut and just didn't work. I recommend keeping it long. Very fun to dance in with the layers- they fan out around the waist. Got lots of compliments and am very happy with the purchase.

I ordered a size 4 due to the reconditions on the sizing chart. I ended up sending it back after ordering a 0 as the 4 was too large. This dress is AMAZING. It was a little long so my alterations lady was able to use the fabric she took off of the length to make small cap sleeves. The fabric isn't too heavy and is breathable. I received so many compliments on this dress, one of which "It looks like you just stepped out of the 1920's, magnificent!". This dress has a classic vintage feel, highly recommend!
