Candy Floss Dress
Beautiful, Stunning, and Well Made Dress
I'd been eyeing this dress for ages, and was pleasantly surprised when they had it on the sale rack at the Chicago BHLDN! Seeing it in person convinced me that I simply HAD to have this dress to wear to my Rehearsal Dinner.
I am 5'2" but a little on the curvy side, with my chest being 34DD. I typically wear either a 2 or a 4 in dresses, but that can fluctuate depending on the fit of the dress. I initially tried this dress on in an 8, as it was the only size the store had, and was surprised by how closely it fit. It was still a little big, so I ordered the size 6 online. It is PERFECT! Fits like a glove. So I would definitely recommend sizing up, as is typical with wedding dresses. Also, the length is not nearly as short on me as it appears on the model. Granted I am probably much shorter than she is, but the length was perfect for me! Probably only a couple of inches above my knee. I am in love!

so cute and fun
Love this dress. Paired with cowboy boots at my wedding and it was super cute. I am tall and it wasn't too short at all. I typically wear a 4-6 in dresses and initially ordered a 4 and it was way too small. I reordered a size 8 and it fit perfectly. Go with the typical rule for wedding dresses of ordering two sizes up. Also, I put in my washing machine after the wedding (even though it said not to) and it stil looks great!

I had been looking for a long time for a beautifully made short wedding, but couldn't find one that DIDN"T break the bank. I fell in love with this one when I found this website.
I based my measurements on the BHLDN website (size two) and it fits perfectly. No alterations necessary and I am only 5'3 so I thought it would have to be hemmed, but I don't think so.
I did have some issues with shipping because it was coming to Canada, BHLDN sent two out when we thought that the first one was lost. Did have some issues trying to get that figured out with the customer services, however, all in all it was worth it.

Dress is perfect!
Just received this today and am sooo excited that the dress fits perfectly! I based my measurements off of bhldn's chart and another reviewer. I am a perfect size 4. The dress is pretty and just needs some steaming. It is a bit stiff as another reviewer said, but that's attributed to the built in bra and interior boning, The dress is not uncomfortable though and falls nicely. The satin sash is pretty, but feels a bit flimsy and thin. I wish the sash was a bit thicker. I may find an alternative sash, but the color is a lovely grey purple.
Overall a perfect dress that just needs to be steamed!
