Â by Verified Reviewer Simple fitting front and a magic back
After searching for a wedding dress literally "everywhere", just by chance I ended up looking at this website and after seeing this dress, was love at first sight. I ordered in size 4, (im 1.63m tall and 56kgs) and in the beginning it fitted like a glove. I am quite curvy, and the dress just easily followed my shape. I lost a little bit of weight the week before the wedding, and it got slightly loose in the waist area, but because of being an easy textile, other people didn't get to notice it.
Because all the attention get to the back side of the dress, the best way to lift it up was wearing long and shiny earrings.
The perfect dress to get married in Majorca Island surrounded by olive trees and romantic spanish fountains.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer This is the one.
I was hesitant to buy this dress. As someone who is in between plus and regular fit, finding a dress that fits is a challenge, a 14/16 in plus size designers is way too big, and in regular fit they can very snug. I wear a size 14 and ordered a 16. It fits snugly but perfectly. I was nervous about the bust measurement since I wear a 38 DD. The measurements in the guide put the bust as being about an inch and a half too small, but I went ahead and hoped the lace back added enough stretch for the bust to fit, needless to say it did and fits like a glove. With a slightly shorter strap I can wear it without a bra, its very supportive. I can't wait to get married in it.

I fell in love with this dress as soon as I saw it! I was hesitant to purchase it online (there are no stores near me that sell these dresses), but after talking to customer service I decided to give it a chance - and I'm so glad I did! The dress arrived so quickly in the mail and was packaged with a great deal of care. I couldn't believe it when the dress fit me perfectly - for reference I ordered a size 4, I am 5'6", 140 lbs, athletic build, measurements were 35 bust - 26 waist -37 hips. The only alterations I'll need are to add a bustle and to try to bring in the top of the back lace a bit because of a small gap.
I haven't gone to any bridal stores to try on gowns yet because I only got engaged a month ago, but I didn't want to miss out on a chance to own this gown. I'll probably still go just for the experience of trying on dresses with my mom and sister, but I'm pretty sure I've found my dress! This dress is absolutely gorgeous and unique. I'm having a rustic wedding on a farm, so it will fit in nicely. I highly recommend talking to customer service if you are interested in any of their gowns but are uneasy about ordering online - their return policy is 30 days from delivery, and includes a shipping label if you need to return it.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer GORGEOUS GOWN!
My wedding is a year away, but I was stressing over finding THE gown I'd envisioned myself wearing. All the gowns I tried on at bridal salons were so hot and uncomfortable, covered in too shiny beading and sequins, so disappointing, I'm a bohemian, who's not into sequins and shiny beading. I only wanted lots of beautiful antique looking lace, and a dress that I felt very comfortable in, something that didn't weigh me down. I finally found all these things in the Petra gown! The antique ivory color of the lace is one of the things that makes this gown so special, not to mention the CUT; it really flatters your curves, in all the right places. The train falls from the most perfect place on the gown, really adding to the shape and silhouette. It is very well made and very comfortable, a gown you could easily wear all day, as long as you added a bustle. That's all I'm gonna have to do, other than altering it a bit at the hem. I'm 5'4, measurements: 36-28-39, and ordered the size 8. The BHLDN size guide put me at a size 6 (which is what I wear in dresses, street size), but I wanted a little more room to wiggle ;-) It fits like a glove, so if you're curvy all over like me, you'll wanna order a size up. This gown is as sexy as it gets, but won't have your grandma grumbling and giving you "the eye of disapproval". It is very elegant, timeless, and beautiful, without having "bling" all over it. Awesome choice for us hippie-bohemian girls. And the price. The PRICE?? This gown is worth MUCH more than $750, and it arrived to my door so quickly! ---I am SO relieved and thrilled that I can stop searching, relax, and focus on other aspects of my wedding day. THANK YOU, BHLDN!
