I never thought I would try on anything like this dress, I had my heart set on the Penelope gown (I found that dress to be underwhelming on my body type.) I didn't think I would need to try on any other dress. I humored my bridesmaids and Mother and took on the bridal gown experience. We shopped the racks and before I knew it I was in the changing room. I was asked which dress I wanted to try on first and I immediately fell in love with the Devon gown so I chose to try it on first. My bridesmaids state I walked out glowing and no other dress could steal my heart from that point on.
The details are extremely elegant and it hugs my curves perfectly. The back of the dress is incredible and the buttons are more durable than I they look (I've tried my dress on several times and haven't lost a button yet.) The dress I bought was size 10, which fits like a US 6. The high neck is embellished which can be uncomfortable if it isn't fitted correctly but the embellished arms haven't bothered me.
Obviously, I think the world of this gown as I will be wearing it on my big day. Its an incredible value, get it while its still available!!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer Absolutely Love It!!!!!
When I first began looking for my wedding dress on BHLDN, my heart was set on getting the Janey dress. My mind was made up. I made my appointment and told the stylist that I was willing to try on other dresses, but that the Janey was going to be my dress. When I tried on Janey and showed it to my family and best friend, they liked it...it is a beautiful dress--- but we weren't too thrilled with it---I was a bit disappointed. My stylist encouraged me to try on the Devin, and thank goodness she did! When I walked out wearing it, my family's jaws dropped! We were in love. The dress has a subtle, yet gorgeous sparkle to it! The neck line is classy, yet is modern and sexy. It fit me so well and the lace on the back is stunning. I was sold!!! I feel that the picture online does not do this dress justice---when this dress is seen in person, one can really appreciate the beauty of the dress. I encourage other future brides to not have their heart set on just one dress during the search process---be very open to trying on dresses you never thought you would like. You might find yourself falling in love with a dress you never would have dreamed of. I am so excited to wear my dress on the big day!!! So happy with this purchase.

Â by Verified Reviewer Perfect dress (for me at least)
I picked out this dress to try on just to mix things up, not thinking I would actually like it and when I saw it on the hanger I thought no way because it was a bit blingier than I expected, but then once I tried it on, I knew I didn't want to take it off. And once they added a simple earring, I felt like a bride and knew this was the dress. A huge plus for me is that it fit perfectly off the rack so I don't need any major alterations. I'm 5'10 and the length will be perfect with a 2-3 inch heel. I can't wait to wear this dress at my wedding! Only negative is the neck is really high and the beading around the neckline scratches a bit, I'm trying to decide if I just tough it out or see if my seamstress can bring the neckline down a bit.

I fell in love with this dress on the website and was extremely excited to try it on. When I got to the Chicago BHLDN, I was surprised at how shimmery the dress was in person, but definitely one of its many unique and defining features. When I tried it on, there were a few things that weren't quite right: 1. the neck came up too high, to the point that when I buttoned the top buttons, after only a few minutes the beading on the neckline made red marks on my neck; 2. the bust area was much to high/big; 3. there was a weird fold/crease around my waist line in the front that unless you extended the boning or put on a belt, appeared to not go away even with a larger size dress. Even with all these things, I insisted this was "the dress" and ordered it the next day. It arrived two days later! I was able to bring it to a local seamstress and she was able to come up with solutions for all the items that weren't quite right, including removing the hand-sewn beading around the neck/arm holes, lowering the neck, and hand-sewing the beads back on. Needless to say, I did decide it just wasn't the right dress for me. Although I loved the details of the bead work, lace back, sparkle and fit, I had to send it back.
P.S. If you're shopping at the CHICAGO BHLDN, request Sam! She was INCREDIBLE! It was my first time trying on dresses and she made the entire experience fun, comfortable, and giving you her honest opinion and all your options. Didn't feel pushy or rushed at all. Thank you!
