Very pretty dress, but a little dismayed
I love the color and style of the dress, but it arrived to me with a few areas of fraying in the lace (one fray is in the arm, pretty noticeable with the dress on) that I am really hoping can be fixed by my seamstress. I am a size 0 and ordered a 2, it will need to be taken in at the bodice and up in the length, but the lace fits tightly which confuses me about how the dress is made. Why would the bodice underneath be baggy but the overlaying lace be tight? I love the style of the dress and want to wear it on my wedding day so I will make this work, but I am not incredibly likely to recommend BHLDN to other future brides.

I'm 5'4, 38C cup, wearing a size 14. Beautiful dress. Really comfortable and well made, but returned it because the long sleeves just don't look that flattering on me. Definitely would need a petticoat under the skirt, hangs flat and limp without it. Skirt is not pleated.

I purchased this dress for my reception. It fits a little weird- the bodice inside is slightly big, but the lace sleeves run small. I went a size up in this dress from what I usually wear. I am tall with long arms so the sleeves are a tad short, but not enough to keep me from wearing the dress.

I loved this dress!
I wore this dress for my small January wedding. I am 5'6'' 112lbs and typically a size 0 but bought the size 2 since all of the reviews said the dress ran small. I ended up taking it in just a little bit around my ribs/chest but I appreciated that the sleeve length. Overall; it was absolutely wonderful and I am very happy with the purchase.
