I am extremely happy about my purchase of this dress. I was first not sure if I would have wanted to get my wedding dress that had sleeves, but I knew Tadashi's dress; I actually own few of his cocktail dresses, so I wanted to give it try. When I first tried this dress, I fell in love with it immediately. These flower lace embroidery on entire the dress are bold statement of the dress. It's actually not too much, rather, it really gives it modern classical look. The cut of front & back with the lace gives you very classical look. I love the "mermaid" style which in fact I was looking for, that fits my height & figure perfectly (I am 5'9" & 145lbs). My wedding was held in late October in Midwest so the style was perfect - the white of the dress & lace embroidery really blend perfectly with autumn color background outside & my autumn-themed-colored bouquet. I did not need any alternation for this dress; length, chest, waist, and hip, and length of the train - everything fits just perfect on my 5'9" height. (I wore 1.5" heels FYI) This dress is made much larger than the actual size - I ended up getting 6 although my normal dress size is usually 8. The material is super comfortable - This is the most comfortable dress that I've ever worn! I hope you could see what I am talking about, through the photo that I am attaching here!

I originally bought a dress elsewhere and at the fitting, decided that I hated it. I came across this dress online and since it was on sale, I took a chance and purchased it. I typically am in flux between a size 8 and 10. Based on previous reviews, I purchased an 8.
I'm so happy that I did!!! This dress is absolutely beautiful. It's elegant and so comfortable. The lace is intricate and unique and the fit is amazing! It also has some stretch so you don't feel confined.
I didn't need any alterations in the end. I'm wearing 4 inch heals (I'm 5 ft 4 inches) and there is about half an inch of the dress that I could hem but I opted against it because the lace is so stunning.

Typically I wear an 8 so I sized up as most wedding gowns run large....not this one, I settled on a size 6. The lace is so beautiful and not something you see everyday. The illusion neckline, and key hole back add the perfect details. This purchase was a second dress for me as I started to second guess my first one. This dress made me realize how important comfort is going to be on my wedding day. I could do a cartwheel in the dress if I wanted to! Sitting, standing, dancing, will not even be a second thought. Beautiful dress for an extremely reasonable price.

I had the opportunity to visit BHLDN in Chicago to try on wedding dresses. While the dresses I originally selected were very nice, none of them really called out to me. My stylist then brought out the Elinor gown for me to try on and I knew then that I found the right dress.
The Elinor gown had everything I was looking for without making any sacrifices: comfort and elegance.
Comfort: I donâ??t feel like I have to hold my breath because the dress is constructed of stretch materials. The lining I found to be very soft. I would almost say itâ??s like wearing a super fancy t-shirt. It's insanely comfortable.
Elegance: The lace on this dress is absolutely fantastic. The pattern is bold, but not overwhelming. I always envisioned wearing a dress with a keyhole back, so for the Elinor to have the keyhole back was another check on the list. The train is the perfect length â?? adds some drama, but isnâ??t cumbersome.
To note, the dress does runs a bit large. I typically wear a 4, but according to the gown measurements I should be a size 2. Iâ??m glad that I ordered the size 2 because it fits perfectly! (5â??5â?? 140lbs.) The only alterations I foresee will be hemming. At my height and wearing 3â?? heels, the gown still needs to be taken up about an inch or so.
Love this gown, I canâ??t wait to wear it on my wedding day!
