Beautiful shoe, definitely runs large
I contacted a BHLDN stylist for advice, and was told that the shoe runs "true to size". However, after reading the reviews, I decided to order a half size down and I'm glad I did. The shoe definitely runs a bit larger, and I am always, always a size 8 but the 7.5 fit me which is very unusual for me. I guess it's because there's very little material to this shoe, so there's a lot of room for your foot.
I have wide feet but found these to be very comfortable. The jewels are absolutely beautiful and arrived in perfect condition. Very happy with my purchase.

I bought these to wear for my wedding. Really beautiful in person - from the front, all you see is pearls. Seem comfortable, though I haven't worn for long periods yet.

Good option for a lower heeled pump
I ordered these shoes in an 8 (size I always wear) after searching for a heel less than 3 in heel for months with much difficultly. My experience with the sizing was that they were the right fit lengthwise - but way too wide - so much that they would fall off if I walked in them. I do have narrow feet and solved this problem by buying a sticky insert that I applied base of the shoe. They do offer limited support as you can tell, but I figure it's worth it for the classy look! My only complaint is that I live near a BHLDN store and had to order online (hence wait the 10 business days# because they don't carry these shoes and many others in the store. The reasoning I was given is that brides-to-be don't want to buy shoes that have been tried on!? I thought that was pretty ridculous #who are these brides?? and what does BHLDN do with returned shoes??) but it only took an extra 10 days...just something to keep in mind if you are in a rush.

Beautiful but POOR quality for $
I ordered this shoe in 2 sizes based on the other reviews. The shoe does run slightly on the large side. Please keep in mind there is no support in this shoe. It is like walking on the ground. I was extremely disappointed as the first pair I received looked like someone wore them before me. Scuffed, chipped pearls, dirt marks on the heel. Not what I expected for this $$$$ amount especially. I called customer service, they sent an additional pair, however, the pearls were chipped on these as well. I did expect a little more customer service with my purchase. BHLDN CSR was somewhat rude to me....have to see if I will be a customer in the future. I need to be won over to come back.
