Thalia Maxi Dress
Not made for every body.
I ordered this in a size 12 pink to fit a bust of 36DD, 30" waist, and 41" hips. It was not flattering at all for a girl with my size chest! First of all, I feel like the color, fabric, and design of the dress made it look like a cheap, 80s prom dress. As for the fit, there was no structure in the top half and even though I was wearing a bra underneath, my chest was droopy and made me look older than I am! There was too much fabric and it just didn't look as good I was expecting. I would definitely recommend this to girls whom are of a much smaller size! It's also very long (as I am short), but with very high heels or a hem it would be fine. Now I ordered other dresses from this website along with this one and I am very happy with another one of them, this one just won't cut it!

Beautiful but the sizing is unpredictable
I purchased this dress in the green for an event I'm attending at the end of November, but sadly I won't be wearing it. The dress is huge! After reading other reviews and having problems with BHLDN sizing before I contacted the stylists for direction. I was instructed that the 14 would be the best fit for my measurements (34 D, 30" waist and 45" hip), however there wasn't a 14 available so I took a chance and ordered the 12. I need at least an 8 in this dress! I might spend the money to get the dress altered because I love the color (a little lighter than the picture) and the style of the dress so much but I won't be able to wear it to the event that I intended.

The dress fits quite true to size. I usually wear 4 in dresses and this one fits well. The colour is a very soft blush pink and the material is so light and it really does flow. The downside to such a delicate and lightweight material (silk chiffon) is that it had so many wrinkles when it arrived in the mail. Also, keep in mind the length of the dress, it is really long (34inches from the waist). I'm 5'7 and it's still too long for me with 4 inch heels. But overall, I really like this dress and I look forward to wearing it on my special day!
