Candy Floss Dress
I had been looking for a long time for a beautifully made short wedding, but couldn't find one that DIDN"T break the bank. I fell in love with this one when I found this website.
I based my measurements on the BHLDN website (size two) and it fits perfectly. No alterations necessary and I am only 5'3 so I thought it would have to be hemmed, but I don't think so.
I did have some issues with shipping because it was coming to Canada, BHLDN sent two out when we thought that the first one was lost. Did have some issues trying to get that figured out with the customer services, however, all in all it was worth it.

Dress is perfect!
Just received this today and am sooo excited that the dress fits perfectly! I based my measurements off of bhldn's chart and another reviewer. I am a perfect size 4. The dress is pretty and just needs some steaming. It is a bit stiff as another reviewer said, but that's attributed to the built in bra and interior boning, The dress is not uncomfortable though and falls nicely. The satin sash is pretty, but feels a bit flimsy and thin. I wish the sash was a bit thicker. I may find an alternative sash, but the color is a lovely grey purple.
Overall a perfect dress that just needs to be steamed!

Disappointed, but worth a shot
Sigh. It was worth a shot, and after that glowing first review I had to try. I think this dress may be perfect for some ladies, so if you're tempted, give it a try, too - it's not on final sale yet, so you can always send it back (mine is on its way#. I followed the size chart #34A, 26, bigger hips but with this type of dress it doesn't matter), and the dress seemed too big, but maybe that was in part due to my small cup size - I'm barely an A. The bigger problem for me was that the fabric seemed stiff, not flowy - that might be good for ladies looking for a retro-looking A-line with a poofy skirt, but I wanted the fabric to move. I planned to get a different belt if I kept it, but the gray satin was actually really pretty. I need more definition of my waist, though, and between that and the fabric it was a no-go for me. It was worth a shot, arrived fast, and I'm pleased otherwise with my first BHLDN experience. Will keep looking...

My fiancÃ© purchased this dress for me as a second dress, although I already had a second dress. He just could not deal with not knowing what I was going to wear. Yes, he's quite the unconventional groom. I must say that he could not have picked a better option, this is such a beautiful dress totally beats the dress I purchased. This dress is lightweight and fits perfect in the bust and the midsection. You will not need to wear a bra with this dress, it has one sewn in. Since I am short, I will have to get the dress hemmed a litter shorter. The detailing is very flirty without being overbearing. I heart this dress, my fiancÃ© for buying it, and BHLDN for selling it. :) A+; if the price was reduced a bit more it would be an A++.
