Overall, the dress is very pretty and delicate. Beautiful design. The size is a great fit. The color of lace appears to be a little darker than in the picture. However, The quality is not really as what I expected at this price.

Beautiful and can wear to more than just weddings!
The dress is stunning! The pink fabric has a sheen to it and the lace is a pretty champagne color. It's also super comfortable. I'm usually a size 4, and that's what I ordered, but it is large in the waist and chest and will have to be taken in a bit. The dress hits me below the knee, so I will have to get it hemmed, too. That's pretty normal for shorter women though.
It's great for bridesmaids dresses and can easily be worn to other special occasions, too. I was afraid the sleeves would be tighter on me, but they are very comfortable as well and I can lift my arms easily. All around a great dress for Spring and Summer weddings!! :)

Stunning dress, but long
I bought this dress in yellow for use as a bridesmaid's dress in upcoming wedding. I am 5'4", 115 lbs and usually wear a size 4. The size 4 in this dress fit great -- except for the length. The models in these photos must be over 6 feet tall for the hem to hit 2 or three inches above their knees! Needless to say, I had to have it hemmed. But other than that, the dress is gorgeous. The lace on top has a little elasticity to it and lies nicely. The bodice and skirt are a pretty mustard yellow and have a slight sheen, making the dress feel appropriate for a special occasion. The seamstress I took it to to have it hemmed ooohed and ahhed over it. One other note: I think it looks better with a belt. I have a dark yellow velvet sash that was the perfect touch.

Pretty, but not worth the price
I purchased this dress for my sister's upcoming wedding. It fit the criteria for a pastel lace dress, which is her bridesmaid theme. I was debating between this dress and a couple vintage options I already have in my closet, but after obsessing over the pretty pictures, decided I had to give it a try. Unfortunately, it did not meet my expectations. Though I know I cannot expect a couture gown for $260, the cost was a bit high for me, especially after I observed the quality. The lace is delicate, but feels cheap, the skirt fabric is stiff and has a shimmer to it that makes it look less refined and more prom-dress like, in my opinion. The dress is made in China and has a definite mass-produced feel, with sloppy factory stitching. I have other dresses from BHLDN's sister company in my closet that show far better workmanship. The most I would pay for a dress of this quality is $100, and for that reason I am returning it.
