Beautiful but not functional
I just received the dress and the lace in the bust area ripped immediately when trying it on. I was really expecting stronger threads in an area that naturally is pulled when you put the dress on. I emailed BHLDN to see what they can do but might have to send it back or sell it. I would hate to though, because I've had my eye on this dress for a long time.

So happy with my decision--Great Dress!
After minor alterations, I wore Rosemary for my outdoor wedding in wine country, California. The dress was perfect--comfortable, beautiful, great for dancing and made me feel like a million bucks for only $600. I recommend this for a casual, bohemian outdoor day to night party.

Loved this dress
I wore the Rosemary Dress for my simple, outdoor wedding at a Maine farm in October. I am 5'6 and typically a size 6 to 10 in dresses. I ordered the medium initially but found that it was snug in the bust (I am large busted), the large was actually much too big in the shoulders and bust and needed slight alterations. The dress was comfortable, feminine and very pretty. One of the wonderful things about it is that it did not require super specialized undergarments and was relatively easy to wear with a low-backed bra already in my closet. I received lots of compliments and despite the long, trailing hem had no trouble walking with our photographer through the fields and woods on the property. I intend to have the dress shortened and wear it again. If you are looking for a sweet, romantic dress that is easy to wear this one is a good bet!
