I was between this dress and another BHLDN dress for my wedding. The other dress was $2000 so it was a major factor in my decision to pick this dress. I am having a small beach wedding, so I wanted a simple dress. This dress is absolutely perfect. I am 5'1, 115 lbs and ordered a size 4 just to be safe. I do have to get it taken in a bit. I ordered a belt from a different website because the ones I liked from BHLDN were more expensive than the dress itself. I wanted a more gold one, because there is gold detailing in the lace sleeves. I also plan on getting a slit put up the side to make it more flowy for the beach theme!!

Beautiful dress, but the fit was off.
I ordered this dress, hoping that it would be an option for my wedding. Unfortunately, although the dress was beautiful, it did not fit me properly. I'm 5 foot 4 inches tall, wear a dress size 4 and am size 30F in the bust.
I ordered the 4 in this dress, and it fit me very well everywhere except the bust. It was so much too small in the bust it was almost comical.
The dress itself is beautiful, the fabric and lace are very high quality. I would definitely recommend this dress for ladies with less than a C cup, or ordering a size up for larger D+ cup ladies and having alterations to adjust the fit everywhere else. So sad this dress didn't work for me!

Too Large and Poor Quality
This dress fit oddly. I ordered a 4, as that's my usual size (130lbs, 5'8", 34D) and this felt like an 8. The shoulders fit, but the bust cups and waist were way too big. I also did not like the gold look of the lace, unlike other reviewers. I thought it cheapened the dress. Yet another overpriced, poor quality item from BHLDN. Sadly returning.

I bought this dress to wear as my wedding dress. When it arrived I liked it but wasn't completely in love. It fit well (although as expected it needs to be hemmed, I'm 5'3''). I bought the 2 and its perfect, I'm 120lbs. I decided to get the belt that it's pictured with and it made all the difference! It's the perfect combination. I was worried that the belt would be too silver because the lace in the dress has gold detail but the belt does as well. I'm now so excited to wear this to my wedding. I feel like this dress would be flattering on lots of body types.
