This dress feels custommade, the silk drapery within being so closely aligned to the way a natural human being walks and sits and "says yes." I found that this dress was magical, perfect for my wedding and the very beauty of the dress managed to get everyone off of their places in the beach to make a reservation to see the party/event as the wedding took place on the beach. I felt charmed.

Photographs more white than gray
When I went to the BHLDN store in Chicago, I had a few dresses I wanted to try on, but quite a few they couldn't get to me in time for my September wedding (I had only a three month engagement, and the first two months were spent in Spain). This was the last dress I tried on, and I didn't even want to because of the color... thank goodness I gave it a try. It became the one, and from pictures you'd never know it was actually "cloud"! I was in between a size 4 and 6, got a six and got it taken in a few places back in Detroit. The dress was actually extremely comfortable, and since the waist fell below the rib cage, but above the belly button I was able to eat, drink and breath all day comfortably. The skirt did have some static to the inner layer, but I used static guard and it worked fine. the button of the skirt also got pretty torn up by the end of the evening, but that was hours after pictures. GREAT DRESS!
oh, and I also got my veil, headband, and the sash from BHLDN.

Wanted to love, but
I fell in love with this dress in the store. It was flawless. The beading was perfect, the skirt was softer than anything, and I felt like a million bucks. I ordered my size, and couldn't wait to get it home. Then I did, and wore it for 20 minutes and experienced terrible irritation around the neckline. The raw netting created a big, red ring around my neck. I unfortunately had to return my one true love! I so wished it could've been The One!

Incredibly soft, unique, stunning
The first time I tried on this dress I immediately said, "I'm in love!" The pictures in no way do it justice. The beading sparkles more of course on the bodice and I paired it with a thin sparkly belt that made it look more fancy. It is extremely comfortable to wear and the skirt is the lightest, softest material I have ever felt. I truly felt like royalty in this dress. Unfortunately, I didn't end up getting this dress because I thought with my petite figure, I would look better in a tighter fitting gown around the hips, but I loved it so much I had to write a review for it. I'm 5'1 and size 0 and I would have ordered a 0 in it.
