I thought this would be the one. . .
I thought this was the one. I had it in my mind that it would be after trying it on once. It's a beautiful dress, and very flattering on. The back is perfection, though the front is a little boobalicious and may need some work. I can't believe it got edged out in the second go round, but it did. If I were to select two dresses, this would have been the other one!

This dress is a dream!
This dress is amazing. I have some curves, so I had to be very specific what I wore underneath. High, very smooth spanx, and stick-on cups. My dress needed minimal alterations, just shortening the bottom, and the straps. My tailor also tacked the front shut and tacked on the sash. The low back is extremely elegant, it's simple classic with a little flair.

Great dress, what to wear underneath?
Love the dress. Will wear it for my wedding but am having trouble finding a bra to wear underneath that provides enough support, does not show through and is low enough in the back (I am a 36 C/D). Any suggestions on this from other customers would be appreciated! Shapewear is a good idea as well, but again...the fabric is clingy so finding something without seams that show through is proving difficult.
Otherwise great dress!

This is a beautiful dress, but not for me. I had a fantastic experience buying it at the store in Chicago. Unfortunately, I tried on a sample 4, and I am a 0 (5'4 112). The draping looked completely different at the store, and I was reassured that I would be able to alter the top to fit my very small (32 A) chest once I received the dress. I took the dress to three seamstresses, and none could alter it to prevent gaps or bagging. Before doing any work I contacted bhldn, and they wouldn't return my dress. Really? No exceptions to the return policy, ever. Even when the consultant assures you the alterations will work. So now I either have no dress or an ill-fitting dress for my wedding in three weeks. It started out so well. Make sure your dress fits perfectly. Don't plan on any major alterations. These dresses are not designed for it, and bhldn isn't equipped with the customer service to help either.
