Beautiful pale pink
On the advice of the stylist, I ordered a size 0 (which I never wear otherwise -- I'm usually a dress size 4 or sometimes 2), and it fit wonderfully! Since I was wearing flats (TOMS) I had to have it hemmed, and my tailor also took up the straps about .5 inch to make the fit just right. He shortened the train a bit as well, since our ceremony was outside and I would be trampling around in nature.
I love the color of this dress. It's a lovely pale pink, and very light and flowing. I felt like a ballerina, or a princess, or a fairy -- generally any cliche bridal metaphor, but it's true. :)

I was dreading dress shopping but the BHLDN store in Chicago made it such a painless process. The store is beautiful and the dressing rooms are amazing. All of the sample dresses are clean and they stock them in multiple sizes, which was important to me because I'm petite and looked pretty silly in the larger sized dresses I tried on a competitors store. I tried on the Tamsin on a whim but knew immediately after putting it on that it was the one but it took me a couple days to make it official because I hadn't planned on wearing a pink dress or a full skirt. I ordered a 4, had a lot taken off the length, shortened the straps, and had a bustle added. Don't hesitate, get this dress!

Tamsin was the first dress I tried on at BHLDN and it was The One. I knew it immediately. I wanted a romantic tulle dress that wouldn't be too heavy since I'm getting married in Florida and it's *hot* here, even in the fall and winter. Tamsin is so flattering in the bustline and makes even curvy girls' waists look tiny! I 5' 4", 36DD, a size 10 in regular street clothes and the 10 worked perfectly. It will just need a little alteration in the bodice as I have a short torso. There's just enough structure in the gown to make it look expensive and great coverage throughout. I love the illusion straps in the back and the romantic way the tulle is draped. The blush color is absolutely stunning. I can't wait to wear this gown for my wedding!

Beautiful princess dress!
I didn't love this dress in the online photos but in person it is BEAUTIFUL! As soon as I saw it I knew it would be a winner. The cotton lace on top is so pretty and the plunging front and back are very flattering. The color is a really lovely blush which contrasts nicely with the white lace and the white satin belt. It's very romantic looking and definitely my princess dress! The experience with the BHLDN stylists was really wonderful too. They went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect and I got the dress of my dreams, in time for my rapidly approaching wedding!
