Rated 4 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer Not for large breasts
Catherine Deane makes lovely gowns, and this is the second one I have tried on by this designer. I usually wear a size 6 in her dresses, which matches with the measurement guide. However, I usually wear a four or two in other wedding gowns, depending on the designer. I am 5â??2â??, and my measurements are 35â?? 28â?? 38â??. I know from previous gowns that the breast cups run small on the size 6, so I thought I would try sizing up. I ordered the eight to accommodate my 32DDD chest. No luck, the cup size is equally tiny. I have natural breasts and they just roll out the top of the strapless dress under the lace. The distance between the wire and the top of the strapless dress is too short, and the underwire is not wide enough for larger breasts. The wire is inside of the dress, and I am not sure how easily something like that can be removed. This is not a dress for woman with large breasts.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer Such a Stunningly Beautiful Wedding Dress
I fell in love with the dress the first time I saw it. I initially bought another dress from BHLDN, had it altered, and then two weeks before my wedding, decided to buy the Bridgette dress after all. The size 6 fit me perfectly. All Catherine Deane dresses use high quality fabrics with the softest lace. Her dresses tend to be on the thinner side so if you have any areas you want smoothed, buy good shape wear. The only alteration I made was to the length of the dress, which was a quick and easy alteration. I am a 36" bust, 27" natural waist, and 38" hips.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer Not as I imagined
The dress looks better on the model then in person. The fit is true to size in the waist and hips (I'm 5'6", 112 lbs and got a size 2) but that neckline is just too tight. After buttoning up the back I felt constrained around the neck and it was just overbearing. It was my first choice but after trying it on one minute later I had to get out of it, comfort is the most important thing for me. The color was also whiter in person.

This was the most beautiful dress and fit my vision of a vintage-inspired lace wedding gown. This was one of the first dresses I tried on when wedding dress shopping, and I knew as soon as I tried it on that it was THE dress. I had to wear Spanx underneath on the wedding day as the silky sheath does tend to shift and show any lines, but it stayed put all night. I typically wear a size 6, so ran true to size. I had to wear 4 inch heels in it as I'm 5'4" and it's a bit long for me. The 4 inch heels were perfect and the dress fell nicely to the floor. It is very form-fitting (I got many compliments on my bum!) so just keep that in mind in the weeks leading up to your big day. :-D My mom's pearls and my great-grandmother's earrings went perfectly with the classic look this dress gives. I felt so beautiful in this dress and loved every minute of wearing it.
