Rated 2 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer Sadly returning
Sadly, I will be returning this dress. I had my eye on it essentially since the moment I was engaged, and though it technically fits like it should (I'm 5'3", 120 lbs and curvy, and ordered a size 4) it doesn't quite sit right when worn. Someone on here mentioned that the inner piece in the bodice is baggy and falls down, which I also found to be true. The lining of the skirt is also very thin. Lastly, the color is much whiter than appears in the photos online.
Other wedding dresses I've ordered have come on a hanger in a dress bag, this one came balled up in a plastic bag, which added a good number of wrinkles to the skirt - a general bummer. At 5'3", I would also need to shorten this dress by a lot, which would probably double the cost of the dress.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer Beadwork is amazing
I knew the moment I saw this dress, it was the one I was going to get married in. I wasn't even engaged yet and not a doubt in my mind this was the most gorgeous dress I'd ever seen. Well, in May of 2016 I got engaged, and instantly bought this dress. Didn't need to try on any others or look at any others. I'm 5'5 B-cup, size 6 pants because I have hips- I should've gotten a size 6 dress but bought a size 4 instead but my soon to be MIL can alter that. It's a bit tight but she'll fix it. Besides that it's perfect. The beadwork is amazing. Obviously have to be super careful with it because of that. My only complaint is the zipper in the back. My first time trying it on, my first wedding dress EVER, and the zipper instantly broke and wouldn't go up or down. I was stuck in the dress. I'm assuming since it's an invisible zipper they just suck. I ended up having to take the whole zipper off of it and have to get a new one put on. We were so gentle and delicate with it and it wouldn't budge. So disappointing. Besides that, I'm in love with the dress.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer In Love!
I bought this dress to wear as my wedding gown and I am so in love with it!!! It is flattering and unique, yet still "bridal". I ordered it after falling in love with the design, but didn't expect it to fit me well - I am 5'5" and hourglass shaped. I have a larger chest and things that are sleeveless and high neck usually do not look very flattering on me, but I wanted to try it anyway. I am so glad I did! For whatever reason it looks great on me! It cinches at the exact right spot and the sequins and beading are such a unique and playful touch. I was very pleased with the train and the feel of the fabric. My only problem is that some of the threading on the sequins came loose and some of them are falling off of the dress. I know it is relatively inexpensive for a wedding gown, but I thought that being from BHLDN it might not have a quality issue like that. I ordered an 8, because even though I'm about a 4 in the waist, my bust size was actually in the 10 range. The 8 is perfect, even though it will need to be taken in at the waist quite a bit. In the bust it fits very well - I'm glad I went with the 8!
Overall, I am so glad I ordered it and I can't wait to get married in it! It's so unique and non-traditional without being too far away from looking like a wedding dress. I love this dress!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer Beautiful and great material
5'8, 155lbs, 36C and a size 8 fits great. It is a little loose up top but that is not a problem at all! I have an hourglass figure and this dress compliments it. I love this dress and cannot wait until my wedding day.
I was originally told to order a size 12 but ended up ordering a size 10 because of the availability at the time. The size 10 was a little loose on me so I returned it and received great costumer service and the size 8 made it back to me much soon than expected.
