Rated 5 out of 5 A Romantic Stunner
I started eyeing this dress along with a few others on the Bhldn website as soon as I got engaged. I scheduled an appointment at the shop in NYC and immediately fell in love. The dress is so incredibly lightweight and lended itself to an amazing night of dancing! I am rather thin and ordered a size 00, I am typically a size XS or 24 in street clothes. I had a few minor adjustments made in the bodice by a seamstress, but otherwise the dress fit perfectly. The dress really flattered my figure. If you are looking for a soft romantic dress the Penelope is the dress for you! It really made our garden glam wedding come together.

Rated 5 out of 5 The dress I always dreamed of...
I must start saying that the experience at the BHLDN Upper East Side New York was amazing. Cara, the stylist was beyond than helpful. She was patient and willing to guide me to find the dress meeting my expectations.
I have to be honest, this dress was not my first option. My party (best friends) made me see that this gown was fair and simple. Yet, I was determined to have the dress right for me not for someone else's eye ... ups. I decided to get the Penelope gown because is romantic, classy and simple. Perfect for my outdoor vintage wedding.
I am a size 4 and I was advised to order a size 6. It was obviously larger than expected, but with my seamstress and a few alterations the dress fit me perfectly.
I am 5.7' and there was no need to trim the dress.
I recommend this dress if you are having a Destination wedding, outdoor wedding or if you just want to look ethereal in your wedding day.
I got married in the beautiful mountains of Colombia and this dress complimented the venue and myself.
Thank you BHLDN

Rated 5 out of 5 Gorgeous quality
After an appointment at the NY BHLDN store, I ended up returning the dress they ordered for me and purchasing the Penelope online. The 00 fit well and required only minor bodice alterations. Iâ??m 5â??8â?? and 118lbs, and wore flats, and the dress hem went perfectly to a hair above the floor in the front. My local seamstress kept gushing over the quality and look of the dressâ??very romantic, and it paired perfectly with the Marnie topper for our NJ winter wedding. Delivery was prompt, and everything arrived in pristine condition. Gorgeous dress!

Rated 5 out of 5 Fairytale Dress
I had an outdoor wedding in the Maine woods in October and this dress could not have been more perfect. I wanted a dress that was light and easy to move around in, and would be comfortable for the entire day. This dress was wonderful and wasn't uncomfortable for a second, not to mention it photographed beautifully.
