Gorgeous dress, way too big
What a beautiful, unique dress. I can't wait to walk down the aisle in this gown!! Unfortunately, the size chart is completely wrong. I'm 5'5", 117 lbs., 36" bust, 29" waist, 36" widest hip. The size chart said I was between a 6 and an 8, so I sized up in case I gain a little weight before the wedding (I'm normally not this thin). I ordered the 8 (confirmed in my choice by a BHLDN sylist, btw), and it's HANGING off me. The waist is at my hips. The size chart says that the difference between a 6 and an 8 is only 1 inch, so I'm going to reorder a 4 and see what happens. Also, you can't really tell from the online images, but the lace contrasts significantly in color from the rest of the fabric (see my photo). The main fabric of the dress is on the dark end for ivory, and the lace is white. I love it, but it's important to know.

I overlooked this dress online but when in the BHLDN store I found myself intrigued by the back. Once I tried it one, my guests and I knew this was the dress. The mannequins in the store do this dress a disservice. It is simple, classy, and still manages to be sexy. I'm in love and can't wait to walk down the aisle in this.
