This is the first dress I've purchased from BHLDN and I am incredibly impressed by the quality of the fabric and craftsmanship. The fabric is luminous! The fit is classic, comfortable, and very flattering. I'm delighted to wear this for our garden party wedding and to many other events in the future! I generally wear a size 4 for other major brands and ordered a size 6 in this dress. The provided fit guide was very helpful and on point. I've been very impressed by the customer service as well.

I have ordered this dress and was very happy to see the beautiful subdued shimmer color.
However , it runs small and the cleavage stays more open than it should, you have to constantly pull it together. I tried to put a pin on it but that does not look good having it is such an obvious place.
I would recommend ordering it one size larger, and early enough that if you need to exchange it or to have it tailored, you have time to do it before your event,.
Beautiful dress though...

There are so many things I love about this dress. 1. It has POCKETS! 2. The fabric is stunning. The shimmer is beautiful, and it is very soft - I can't stop petting it. 3. It fits very well, very flattering; though the natural waste sits just above mine, the belt provides remedy. 4. Very sturdy, quality construction with nice details.
A few things to note: 1. The belt can be doubled around to tie in the back if that's your preference. 2. The belt is loosely (but securely) attached in the back by a couple hidden strings. It could easily be detached if you wanted to put a different belt on it. 3. Beneath the tops of each shoulder is a little string attached by a snap at one side. I imagine it is meant to hold your bra straps in place. One of the nice details of the dress.
I was looking for a non-conventional wedding dress, and this fits the bill. I love it and am very excited to wear it!
