I just received my dress and it was much more than what I expected. I was a bit hesitant ordering online but this dress is a dream. Completely true to size and fit like a glove. My only challenge is that my boyfriend is about my height and I will not be able to wear high heels. Since it does run a bit long, I will have it altered. I'm 5'8 and with a pair of nice 3 inch sandals it should be perfect length for anyone. I will be wearing flats ;). Thank you BHLDN for a beautifully designed dress! ...honestly good for any occasion.

My dream dress!
I had a dress made for my daughter's wedding and about a week before the event realized that I hated it.Started frantically searching and saw this online but it was out of stock. I called the Chicago store and they overnighted it to me and it arrived two days before we were to leave.It fit right out of the box and it was the perfect dress. I couldn't have asked for anything better. It is truly a gorgeous dress. I am tall and it was long enough for 4" heels. Also very comfortable for dancing. I have never received so many compliments!

The perfect dress
This dress is even more beautiful in person. I bought this dress for my senior prom, and I received so many compliments. My date and I were definitely the best dressed there. I am 5'7" and bought a size 6. This dress runs very true to size. It was a little long, but it was perfect with my 5" nude heels.

Feel like a princess!
I tried multiple dresses from Bhldn for my August wedding before landing on the Swansdown dress. It is a second wedding for me, so I was looking for a dress that was elegant but a little unconventional. The wedding is taking place at a vintage inspired inn, so I also wanted a dress that fit the character of our location. I had tried the Niceities dress previously (which disappointingly looked like a nightgown), and since the Swansdown dress is a similar color and material I was skeptical that this dress would work. The moment I zipped up this dress I knew it was THE ONE. I felt absolutely beautiful wearing it. My oldest daughter said that I looked like I belonged in a fairytale. Other than being a little long (I tried it on with 4" heels), and a little baggy in the sheer area above the bodice it fit perfectly. The dress hugs and drapes my hourglass figure in all the right places. I can also wear it with a standard strapless bra - which is a bonus.
