Rated 3 out of 5 I wanted to like this dress
The dress itself is beautiful but it shows all of the imperfections in your body. The dress is comfortable but there's no support at all. To quote one of my bridesmaids who was with me when I tried on the dress, it looks like "ill fitting lingerie." Pretty dress but it just didn't look good on me.

Rated 5 out of 5 Best Decision Ever
I ordered this dress online. In the beginning i was scared to order without even trying it on. I had the change to talk to one of the designer which made it easy to order in my size. I ordered size 2.
I donÂ´t live in the states so i had to order international shipping. I was super happy to receive a beautiful gown wrapped in a good package. Even the shipping was fast.
The dress was exactly what i had in mind, very light and easy to wear. Size 2 was a little bit to large for me so i had to alternate it.
On my wedding day i completed my style with a bridal sash and a Bhldn Cover Up.
Over all, best choice ever.

Rated 5 out of 5 Incredibly gorgeous dress and the BEST customer service
This dress is absolutely stunning and exceeded my expectations. It fits very comfortably and highlights my curves beautifully. I'm 5'3" with 35/27/35 measurements. I originally got the size 2 (my street size) but it felt too big, especially in the bust. So I contacted a BHLDN stylist via email and Anne was absolutely kind, helpful, and supportive! She gave the most thoughtful advice and even helped waive the shipping charge on my second dress in a size 0, extended the return window on the size 2 because there was a delay in the size 0 getting to me, when I had wanted to have the two sizes to compare side-by-side and with my undergarments, then keep the one I wanted and return the other one (great return policy!). I ended up keeping the size 0, and would say that if I had worn a padded bra, the size 2 would have worked. But with a non-padded bustier, the size 0 fitted my body perfectly and felt great. I had it hemmed just a bit and had the hip, rear, and upper thigh areas taken in a bit to create a more mermaid shape, further defining my curves elegantly. So it's totally possible to achieve that mermaid look (if that's what you desire) by taking it to a professional tailor, as the material didn't seem difficult to alter. Not only do I love the dress, but I've never received such excellent customer service anywhere else ever. Anne was patient with my questions and indecision with the dress, and she further helped locate the earrings I could no longer get online and had to order from a store. She really went above and beyond, and the store rep I talked to in Seattle was equally helpful and kind. I'm really impressed with BHLDN overall. I couldn't be more proud to be a BHLDN bride decked out head to toe with the dress, earrings, sash, and shoes all from here (the specific items I got are no longer available, otherwise I'd review those too). Everything worked really well with my rainforest wedding in Hawaii (the dress packed up nicely without a single wrinkle too!) and I got compliments from my groom and guests all night long! Extra plus: It cleans easily too (after a trip to a black sand beach in it) and I got it back just like new post-wedding! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 The dress picked me!
I've been shopping for five months at many bridal boutiques, but this dress drew me in. I saw it at the New York BHLDN but did not have the opportunity to try on that day. I kept visiting online, and finally I just ordered it. I'm glad I did, because it is perfect! This dress truly picked me. All the previous reviews are pretty much spot on. It does run a little big, but not vanity sized at all. I am a street size 10 but I'm smaller up top, so I ordered a size 8 for this dress. Very flattering fit! With 3" heels, the hemline still touches the floor with about a 1/2 inch sweeping it. I do wish the skirt fanned out more as it does in the stock pictures.
I enjoy very nice things, so I was initially hesitant that at this pricepoint, it would look cheap, however, this is a very good lace, and the detailing is very nice.
My wedding will be next November, and I've ordered the Savannah topper to go along with it because I love the eyelash lace fringe and it's a modest selection for the church ceremony. I plan on shedding the topper for the reception and adding a belt.
I love how this dress is so versatile, customizable, and moreover, absolutely within budget. I am more than impressed and I highly recommend. I loooove this dress. Happy shopping, brides-to-be!
