Â by Verified Reviewer Great dress after alterations
I adored my Janey dress, but it took a few alterations to get there. As someone who's a bit smaller on top, I needed to dart in the top. We toyed with shortening the straps, too, but decided to leave them longer, which was the right move. We cut down the back so it was even lower and added in buttons for a bustle. When all was said and done, it looked fantastic! I bought this for the original price. Now that it's been discounted, you really can't go wrong. Buy it, and spend the cash you saved on alterations to really make it your own.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer Not designed for wide hips
This dress is very lovely, and conceptually exactly what I want-- however it is not good for women with low, wide hips. I am a street 8, and ordered a 10, but I would have needed a 14 to fit my low seat (then requiring the rest of the dress to be massively brought in).
It felt like I was squeezed into a funnel halfway down my rear-- with the high hip designed to be the widest part-- or as though it was already tailored the to the rear of a specific woman's body in mind.
I think it is best suited for bustier women with narrow/high hips and thin legs, not for women with apple bottoms.
Very disappointed, but BHLDN has so many different cuts of dresses I'm sure I'll find a different style that compliments my shape!

Â by Verified Reviewer Love this dress!
I received so many compliments on this dress! It is a fit and flare, so it showed off my curves, but I was still able to sit and dance. The silhouette is so flattering. I'm 5'6" and wore 4 inch heels and needed to take it up several inches, but the bottom can easily be altered without sacrificing the scallop detail. My wedding was in a mansion from the 1840's, so the lace fit the setting perfectly. Gorgeous dress!

Â by Verified Reviewer The Only Dress I tried On
My sisters and I were scrolling through all of the wedding dresses for "inspiration" and when we came to Janey Gown we all stopped and agreed it was the one for me. I ordered it, waited weeks for it to come in, and without trying on one other single dress I knew it was the one! It was perfect for the day and I never felt more beautiful!
