Rated 5 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer THE dress!
I loved this dress at first sight. I ordered based on the size chart but was worried it still might be too tight in my hips because I am curvy. It actually fits perfectly! The color is definitely darker in person but I'm not sure I'd call in purple. Thank you to whomever returned this dress! I thought about buying it for too long and when I went back it was gone. I have since looked at other dresses but I found the link again a couple weeks ago and when I clicked on it--the dress was available again. So thrilled! It was meant to me mine :). Thanks so much BHLDN for this fabulous dress!

I wanted to LOVE this dress. I saw the sale price $500!!!! and felt like this dress could be amazing. It arrived and the color was lavender, super purple it didn't look like the picture at all. The dress was so small I couldn't even zip it up. I ordered based on my measurements too. While the interesting neckline looked great online, in person it made me feel like an old lady. This dress is gorgeous on the model, but not anything special in person. So disappointing!!!! Oh well, I still love BHLDN

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer Beautiful dress
This dress is gorgeous, I ordered it as I love lace but wanted something different. The illusion neckline & flutter sleeves are a beautiful feature and definitely makes it stand out from other dresses. I agree with the other reviews that the underlay is a light lavender/nude colour this makes the delicate lace and subtle sparkle stand out, it is not beige. It only enhances it's vintage look more. It is quite long so would need to be taken up if your below 5'10. The cut is very flattering to any shape & is very light so perfect for an outdoor or summers wedding. All you need is a vintage hair accessory and your ready to go,
Timeless & Elegant. I love it.

I was so excited to order this dress, because I fell in love with the sleeves and the drape at the back, but upon receipt, I am underwhelmed. As far as the color controversy is concerned, it is definitely a purplish greige color, which is fine enough for my indoor evening wedding, where everything will look ivory under artificial light. The sleeves are my favorite part - they are beautiful, except the tulle and sequins were instantly scratchy under the arms - definitely did not want to wear it all night. The back drape was also scratchy and did not have the dramatic look seen in the website photos - it just sort of sat there like a tutu-ish lump on my back. I also disliked the strapless underlayer - in person, it looks somewhat common and in my opinion, is too modern of a silhouette for the vintage style top layer. Finally, I just didn't like quality of the materials. The entire piece seems a little cheap, even at the sale price. I am 5'9", 34D-29-40 1/2, and I tried a 10 and an 8. The dress fit true to size, with the 10 quite large, and the 8 still with room to nip in the waist, while the top was a little tight. Shorter girls will need to hem.
