Beautiful princess dress!
I didn't love this dress in the online photos but in person it is BEAUTIFUL! As soon as I saw it I knew it would be a winner. The cotton lace on top is so pretty and the plunging front and back are very flattering. The color is a really lovely blush which contrasts nicely with the white lace and the white satin belt. It's very romantic looking and definitely my princess dress! The experience with the BHLDN stylists was really wonderful too. They went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect and I got the dress of my dreams, in time for my rapidly approaching wedding!

This dress is gorgeous! The material is high quality and has a nice weight to it while still feeling ethereal. The cotton lace on the bodice gives it a romantic quality and the neckline is just low enough to be interesting but not so low that you can't still feel demure ;)
I am 5'8.5, 128 lbs, and a 32C. (34-25-35) The size 2 fit well off the rack but even better after some taking in at the waist and shortening of the straps. With 3 inch heels the length would be perfect as is.
The pictures show me with some sew in bust cups and heels. The white satin sash it comes with isn't pictured because the seamstress took it off for pinning. If you're looking for a little bling you can buy fancier sashes from BHLDN that look fantastic with this gown.
I should mention that the blush underlay is very subtle. In many lights the dress looks white. I think many skin tones are flattered more by the rose tones than by pure white, so don't knock it until you try it :)

Beautiful gown; fits like a glove!
I wasn't planning on buying a dress, but fell in love with the Tamsin gown--the first wedding dress I tried on! The blush color is beautiful and changes tone in different lighting, and the tulle is light and airy. I love the see-through lace on the back! It is incredibly comfortable, and I love that I don't need to wear a bra. I am 5'10", approximately 140 lbs; the size 4 fit perfectly--the only alteration I need is to cut off the train (a bit too much dress for my liking). The dress is so romantic, and could work for a lot of different venues.

Romantic and Sexy
I walked into the Georgetown Anthropologie in Washington, DC on a whim and was able to secure a last minute walk-in appointment for the BHLDN salon. I never grew up dreaming of my wedding day, and I have always felt uncomfortable even looking at traditional wedding dresses online. My stylist, Lucy, was very thoughtful and picked this dress for me to try on last. It is an exquisite, romantic, and dare-I-say sexy gown. The structure of the dress brings to mind romantic tutus from the ballet Giselle. The sweet detailing on the bodice makes the plunging neckline more demure, and the skirt moves with ease. I adore the blush color, which I imagine would be flattering on most skin tones. I will need to get the dress tailored to shorten the straps and the skirt. I am thrilled with the dress and am scheming to find ways to wear it more than once!
