I looked everywhere for a destination wedding dress that had a less formal feel and weight but still made me feel like a bride. I also struggled a bit with finding something complimentary to my small bust, lumps, big hips and size 14 frame. Everything I tried on made me feel lumpy or huge. Every review is 100% accurate. The image on the website does not do it justice. It truly is complimentary to any shape and it is quite slimming. The white lace with ivory appliquÃ© detail is unique and beautiful but not over done. It has a girly bohemian flave without bling. Perfect for a barefoot wedding in Hawaii. I could not be more thrilled with this dress!

I LOVE MY JOSS GOWN
I have received more compliments on this dress than anything else. I loved it. It was beautiful and fit me like a glove. I did have it altered a tad. I added cups and had it hemmed as well as added some boning and sewed in a BHLDN belt.
I am a 4 and the 4 fit perfectly so its pretty true to your size.
It was easy to move in. easy to clean afterwards as well.
The only thing I would recommend is that you take it out of the bag when you get it and put it into a different garmet bag... Everything I purchased from BHLDN had a smell that was very hard to get rid of. If you do this right away you should have no problems.
BEAUTIFUL AFFORDABLE GOWN.

This dress was an amazing success. It is a bit nondescript looking on the website and on a mannequin, so I was reluctant to try it on (originally I had something totally different in mind), but the choice was clear once I did. It is both unique and classy, and looks considerably more expensive than it is. I am 5'5'', 125 lbs and bought a 4 by the recommendation of my stylist at the Chicago location, but ended up getting it taken in to the point where a 2 might have been the better choice. I don't think you need to have a bohemian style wedding to wear this dress (though it does work for that); it can be styled to look very elegant and understated as well. I wore it with the Pearly Primrose sash.

I always though that I wanted to wear a Free People dress on my wedding day. I ordered one that I had thought would be the "one" and I hated it. I had been eyeing this one for a long time and decided to order it. I took my own measurements and ordered my size based on those...man were they on point. I am 150 pounds and 5'8" and I ordered a 6. This dress fits me like a GLOVE and it is so flattering. The detail is seriously amazing...comfortable dress too. I agree with the below comment that a push-up bra should be worn with it. It feels like the bust could maybe fall down if I danced a little too hard...can't have that!
