A joy to wear
My mother talked me into trying this dress on at the BHLDN salon in Chicago, and I'm so glad she did. It fit perfectly off the rack-- no tailoring needed-- and was unbelievably comfortable and unique. I wore it all through the night at our summer wedding and plan to get it altered to wear as a party dress in the future. It got rave reviews and I felt truly special wearing it. Definitely recommended!

The most beautiful thing I own...
I stalked this gown online for months and months, and finally took the plunge after I noticed a few sizes starting to sell out. I'm so glad I did - because this gown is even more exquisite than I could've hoped for.
The fit: true to size - but due to the bias nature of the fabric, it can probably be sized up or down slightly. I'm only short, but the length is just as dipicted on the model - probably because I'm quite curvy, if I were straight and narrow it would fit longer. It's form-fitting without being too restrictive - you can sit, stand, walk and dance easily. There will be no issues whatsoever wearing this for hours and hours on my wedding day.
The fabric: much more delicate than depicted online. The slip is so soft and luxurious (however I will probably have another one made so that I can wear a bra with straps). The lace is beautiful but if I were to be pedantic I'd say that the colour is ever so slightly darker than pictured - however this doesn't bother me whatsoever.
The style: would work with many styles - bohemian, romantic, vintage, contemporary with the right accessories. So versatile. Provides coverage, but with a peek-a-boo of skin - sexy and conservative.
Shipping: so quick! I live on the other side of the world and my gown arrived in one week!
This is a beautiful gown - simple but still intricate. Perfect for the bride that wants to wear something a little "left of centre" but still look like a bride.

the dress came true to size and didn't need any alterations, I got so many compliments on my wedding day and felt beautiful and comfortable in this dress, I paired it with the ivory forties forever slingbacks, the noble lineage bracelet and barretts that were my great grandmother's.

Fits like a dream
Because I am on the shorter side (5'2") I was nervous to receive and try on this dress. I had high hopes, and so badly wanted it to fit and be perfect. I'm happy to say, my hopes were met and were exceeded with this absolutely gorgeous dress. I could not be happier. It fits perfectly, but the materials of the lining and lace shell are not rigid, allowing me to move and bend so comfortably. I can also walk with a completely normal gate and it moves so effortlessly. I could not be more happy with this dress, and I cannot wait to wear it on the day of my wedding. Not to mention the fact that no alterations are needed whatsoever. It's as if this dress was tailored to fit my body. In love.
