Beautiful dress, but not a good fit
When I ordered a few dresses from BHLDN, this one was my favorite based on appearances. I thought the same thing when I saw the dress in person. I was disappointed because the fit was not for me. It just hung on me. The arms and upper back were baggy, but the dress fit in the chest and hips. I'm on the curvy side, but average weight. It is a beautiful dress for a unique bride, so you might consider ordering a few different sizes to see what works.

Perfect Unique Dress
Perfect for my outdoor summer wedding, in the beautiful Greek island of Evia. Loose fit dress, a little shorter than expected, but the unique high quality lace makes it a perfect choice

An essential piece for wedding and then some
Though I already planned to wear the Rosemary Dress (also available here) for my casual autumn wedding at a family farm in Maine, I saw this dress and had a moment of panic.... maybe I wanted to wear something shorter? I typically wear a size 6 or 8 in dresses (I am 5'6 and busty) and after reading reviews I opted to order a 10 and 12 and went with the 10. I found the 12 to be extremely large in the bust and shoulders, but had little difference elsewhere. The dress is adorable and I have a feeling it would work on many different builds. I felt great in it immediately and love that I don't have to stress about finding a special bra, etc. I plan to wear it (with vintage cowboy boots) to my rehearsal party at a fabulous local restaurant tomorrow night and it is an easy dress to justify having in my wardrobe. I can definitely see it being worn in many different ways.

This dress was exactly what I was dreaming of for my outdoor, rustic, bohemian, backyard wedding. Such a sophisticated yet practical dress that was so gorgeous - but humble. The dress made me feel so beautiful while I was wearing it. It really accentuated the natural and bohemian feel I was going for without feeling like everyone thought the dress was more beautiful than I was! I am normally a size 2 but found the 0 was perfect. Not too tight - but very flattering. The colors and textures of the lace contrasted with the slip was just perfect. An absolutely gorgeously made dress with a very unique feel to it. I wore it with pale blue wedges and a flower crown in my hair. Like I said before - absolutely perfect!
