Fabric is DIVINE - Beautiful color and TTS
I recently purchased 2 Bhldn dresses to try on and compare. The first was 100% polyester (Queen Anne) and this dress is 100% silk. Oh my lord, the silk feels *amazing*. The bottom of the dress is so delicate and swishes so lovely. Must be careful because accessories will snag. The size 6 fit true to size as per the measurements listed by Bhldn and the color is a very pretty cream. LOVE full lace sleeves. They're so hard to find in the U.S. - it seems to be a UK designer trend only! The model is very thin, but I think this dress would also be beautiful on fuller girls as well. The silk belt is okay, not terrible, and is better quality than the cheap satin one that came with the Queen Anne dress. But you may want to swap out a sparkly belt. The waist hits at the perfect spot - no awkward muffin or tummy. I'm 5'7", 135lbs and the length hits just below my knee, very similar to the model. Silk lining does cause some static - so keep a dryer sheet nearby!
We're having a tiny 15 person garden ceremony and this is the absolute perfect dress.
