Too Large and Poor Quality
This dress fit oddly. I ordered a 4, as that's my usual size (130lbs, 5'8", 34D) and this felt like an 8. The shoulders fit, but the bust cups and waist were way too big. I also did not like the gold look of the lace, unlike other reviewers. I thought it cheapened the dress. Yet another overpriced, poor quality item from BHLDN. Sadly returning.

I bought this dress to wear as my wedding dress. When it arrived I liked it but wasn't completely in love. It fit well (although as expected it needs to be hemmed, I'm 5'3''). I bought the 2 and its perfect, I'm 120lbs. I decided to get the belt that it's pictured with and it made all the difference! It's the perfect combination. I was worried that the belt would be too silver because the lace in the dress has gold detail but the belt does as well. I'm now so excited to wear this to my wedding. I feel like this dress would be flattering on lots of body types.

I am 9mo postpartum and am looking for a wedding dress that will flatter my body. I ordered this in a 6 based on my measurements 35-29-39 and this is slightly large. It's still very flattering. I don't think i would size down, so it will definitely need a few alterations in the shoulders. I am petite (5'2) and it's very long so will also need hemming. I ordered a stunning belt from anthropologie that was 58$ (more gold than silver but i plan on wearing golden shoes) very similar to the one pictured without the pricetag. the belt definitely turns this dress into a wedding gown even for the most casual wedding (mine is a garden wedding with 20 guests) I hope this review is helpful. I had wished there were more reviews on this dress especially for such a value.

First, I have to say how surprised I am that there are no reviews of this product! This dress is pretty in person-the lace is white but outlined with a touch of gold, which is hard to see in photos. There is boning up the sides that provides great structure. I appreciated that there are cups bc I wouldn't need a bra (I'm a 34/36C). You can see the outline of the cups slightly near the armpits but that didn't bother me. One thing I didn't like is that the material bunched a little at the waist seam but I think that's because of my body type since I don't have a completely flat stomach. I am 36-29-41 and I ordered the size 6 but I would definitely have to hem it since I'm 5'2. I'm not sure if it's "the one" but it is definitely a contender based on the price and quality.
