even prettier in person
This dress exceeded my expectations. The lace detailing is even prettier in person and the fit was great. I had shopped for months for a dress appropriate for an intimate beach wedding - this one fit the bill in every way: elegant, light enough for hot weather, and gorgeous details without being too precious.
Sizing: I was one size smaller than the size chart indicated. I'm glad I tried the size down before taking it in for extensive tailoring. The smaller size fit with no alterations (except shortening). Returning the one that didn't fit was as easy as could be. I couldn't have been happier with my BHLDN shopping experience.

I ordered this online and wondered how it would be when it arrived-on time and nicely...well I received it today and it is gorgeous. As pictured...only better!
I am 5'6" 150 lbs 36 full B, athletic shape, and the size 6 fit to the T perfect.
This is a beautiful, romantic, and flattering dress. I am very excited to have found my perfect dress.

I tried on several gorgeous dresses at bhldn, but this was the one that I really loved. I was drawn to the antique look of the lace and simplicity of the style. The bottom lace on this dress has a delicate and beautifully sewn scalloped lace. If you zoom in, you will see it. The picture here on the website does not display just how lovely this dress is. I am 5'3" with curves-- it seems this dress fits my body perfectly, giving accent where I want it. I purchased a size 8 and will be shortening it at the shoulders and just above the knees, where the two different laces come together. This way I will not lose any of that detailed scallop at my feet. The slip that comes with this dress was not silky enough to wear with it, so I got my own.
Don't be deterred by the model here; it is an absolutely beautiful dress!

This dress has beautiful ivory embroidery, but the photos misrepresent the colors of the dress as a whole. The underlying lace is very bright white and looks strange underneath the more yellow-ish ivory detail. It also seems to run a little large.
