Great dress, made a waistband from extra fabric
I love this dress. I paid full price, wish I had gotten it for $480 but oh well. I loved it. Felt beautiful, simple, not over done. I did decide to get a belt made, see how it looks.

Beautiful Dress! Fit Guide Not Helpful
I absolutely love this dress! However, getting the correct size has been a nightmare. I have had to order this dress 3 times (and pay overnight shipping). My fiance and I planned a quick wedding so I needed the gown pretty fast. I read the fit guide, took my measurements, emailed the help on the website to verify the size I should order. They recommended a 12 based off of my biggest measurement. Seemed rather large to me, but went for it anyway. Way too big! That one was sent back and I ordered a 10, just worried about my hips! Another fail. This time I had my friends re-take my measurements and measure the excess fabric on the 10 to help me decide what size to order. I finally ordered a size 6 (And a BHLDN rep very kindly took off the shipping charge for this one). The 6 fit perfectly! The measurements just don't make sense to me. Either way, I have my dress, it's a perfect fit and and I can't wait to get married in it! It really is more beautiful in person than in the picture.

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.
