First of all kudos to BHLDN staff who helped me all the way from Afghanistan, while serving, to figure out - based on my measurements - which gown would be best suited for me. I ordered 6 and tried them all on upon returning home (return policy is OUTSTANDING). Although I did have to have it altered (my bust wasnâ??t full enough so added cups) after that it fit like a dream. I typically wear a 6-8, and a 6 fit me almost perfectly (runs maybe 1/2 - 1 size big). Itâ??s simple yet classic and was a huge hit. I had it cut-off and turned into a cocktail dress to wear for years to come. It was stunning and made me feel like the bride I never thought I could be.

Love, Love, Love!
I ordered a few dresses on BHLDN as a second option because the dress I bought from a local store was a disaster. They all fit a little bigger than the size chart measurements suggested. The size chart for this dress said I needed a 4, but the 0 fit with minor alterations. The beautiful detailed seams and matte fabric on this dress make it perfect! I am so happy I found it and that I was able to order a few different dresses to return so I could make sure I had a dress. I LOVE BHLDN! They saved the day!

I havent't purchased this gown yet but I do have photos of the fit. It is very, very plain & simple which leaves a lot of room for accessories & an elaborate vail. The thing that I'm not sure that I can get over is the stiffness and the extra length and flare of the dress. It is definitely the epitome of a true "Mermaid" style dress.

I ordered a wedding dress a year before our wedding and at my last fitting (3 weeks before our wedding) the dress was ruined by the seamstress! I had no choice but to look for a new dress. I looked on BHLDN because I needed a dress ASAP! It took two days to get to my doorstep!
I chose this dress and the Ava Tulle Skirt (to wear during the ceremony). This dress fits better than my first and is SO flattering! Never thought I'd be wearing a dress I never tried on but this one is a winner! If you're looking for elegant, simple but still stunning-this is your dress!
