Beautiful and Elegant!
When I received the dress it was shipped inside a garment bag. I thought that was a wonderful touch. I was traveling overseas and it protected the dress nicely. When I unzipped the bag, I was so pleasantly surprised. The color is a soft white/ivory with a nude lining. There are fine embroidery details and little crystals throughout the front and back. The shape falls elegantly and is very flattering. It fits my curves well. The lining is stretchy. I bought a size 14 but I could probably have sized down. I'm 5'7" tall 38-30-42. I was very comfortable in it. I chose this dress for my reception dress.

Absolutely wonderful dress!
The dress fits absolutely perfectly! I am normally a 10-12 because of my hips, but ordered an 8. I was concerned about the dress fitting my very curvy hips, but the lining is stretchy and can accommodate any shape. I am not afraid to lose/gain weight before the wedding because it will still fit. The drape of the fabric is very flattering. Definitely order the dress according to your bust measurements, as the top doesn't have the same give. I am a 34B, and the bust has room for a generous push-up bra. As far as hemming goes, I'm planning on wearing flats. I don't think the dress needs to be hemmed -- we'll see when I find the shoes.
This dress is absolutely gorgeous, and you will not be disappointed!

I was torn between this dress and the Cypress gown, but was not willing to spend another $200. So, I took a chance and ordered the Leyna Gown. My gown came yesterday in a box and the gown is inside a nice garment suit. That is probably why there's an addtl shipping charges but its worth it..My measurements are 36.5 -30-39 and size 2 fits like a glove! If you carry extra weight on your belly area-the front detail might accentuate it..Overall,I am happy with my purchase!Im so glad I found BHLDN!

I feel so fortunate that I was able to go into the BHLDN store and try on dresses. When I walked in I was advised to go and look at the dresses because 'they look different in person'. I literally 'visited' this dress everyday for several weeks leading up to my appointment. It is beautiful, even more so in person, however it is not for curvy bodies. The top is also very tight against the neck and would have required alterations. As much as I wanted this to be the dress, it just did not fall well on me and was not comfortable.
