Crystal Lattice Sash
delicate and very flatering
Fell in love with this belt in the store, ordered it and it came this week. As another reviewer mentioned it has a great art-deco quality which I really liked. Also I am petite (5'2" and 100 lbs) and a lot of other belts overwhelmed my frame/waist so the consultants kept trying to steer me towards the really skinny belts (the ones that are basically a 1/4 or 1/2 inch strand of crystal). However I kept searching for something with more style and design that is still lightweight and this is perfect. The design is fully cut out (the crystals are applied to a cut-out suede backing) so your dress will fully show through. I particularly liked this versus other styles where the design is applied to a thicker satin sash and then tied around because those also can cinch too much or be overwhelming/thick (I think I look like I am wearing a wonder woman cummerbund with some of the more heavily adorned sash styles lol). I also think the quality/symmetry is great and have not noticed any issues with it when I brought it to my fitting
In summation: very airy but intricate design that will allow your dress to also shine and will not overwhelm smaller frames.

Feminine with an art deco vibe
I wore the bronze/blush sash with the Luella dress and really loved how it dressed up the gown without being too overdone. Very pretty and delicate. I thought the quality was great and loved how lightweight it was. I also loved that it brought in a slight art deco vibe without looking out of place on my romantic lace gown.

I ordered both my wedding gown and this sash from BHLDN without the ability to try them on first. When I got the sash in the mail and saw it for the first time, I was extremely happy with the purchase. The belt is just beautiful! I have not had any problems with the crystals or ribbon. The quality of the sash is perfect. I can not wait to wear this for my May beach wedding!

Beautiful but poor quality
I wish this item would have worked out for me because of how beautiful it is; however, I tried two different ones from the Bhldn store in Chicago and both had issues. The first was completely asymmetrical, and one of the four main circles was pointy. I exchanged for a new one that looked more symmetrical but after I got home, I realized it was missing a crystal and others seemed loose. It's too expensive to worry about it falling apart before the wedding.
