Although the pictures highlight the beautifully beaded back, they cannot describe how absolutely stunning this dress is in person. My first reaction was touching the dress while taking it out of the bag. The fabric is light and delicate, which compliments the feminine design of the dress as a whole. I am typically a size 4 dress, but ordered a size 6 because the 4 was not available. I'm happy to say that the dress fits like a glove (with a few adjustments necessary in the bust, but not much).

Wow, this dress is stunning. My mom and my friend both literally gasped when I came out of the dressing room, and they hadn't even seen the back yet which was the most stunning part. This is one of those dresses that I thought was too revealing to look good on me, but I was completely wrong. It looked the best on me out of all of the dresses I tried on. Also, this dress is very light, comfortable, and very easy to wear. It's also very flattering! I'm slightly bigger on the bottom and smaller on top and it looked great on me. Sounds like from the reviews that it looks great on the opposite body type, and that really says something about the dress. Also, another great thing about this dress- it's white. BHLDN doesn't have that many white dresses- most are ivory. I bought the size 4. It's slightly too big in some areas, but will be easily fixed with alterations. My measurements are 35"x 27.5" x 38.5" for reference.

The second I saw this dress I knew it was the one I wanted. I was terrified to try it on because I had already fallen in love with it, hoping it would look as good on me as it does this model. It does! It's even better in person and is VERY flattering! I bought it immediately after I tried it on...I'm obsessed!
I am very tall, so I will need to add a bit to the slip underneath, but the tulle is longer than I needed!
Overall, not much alterations will need to be done! I highly recommend this dress if you are thinking about purchasing!

This dress is absolutely STUNNING! I originally chose this as a backup dress to my Jenny Packham Willow. But when it arrives, I was so overwhelmed by the beauty of this dress that I decided to wear it on the day of my wedding! It's made of high quality silk, light, flowy and goddess like! I couldn't ask for a better wedding dress.
Technically, this dress is perfect for my inverted triangle body type: it covers my broad shoulder, further narrowing my shoulder with deep v-neck, high waistband gives nice narrowed definition at the waist, and long flowy bottom makes my boyish small hips very feminine.
This is a timeless modern vintage piece of art, I love it. Was thinking about selling my wedding dress after reception to cut down budget, but not this one, I'll save it for my future daughter :)
