My Dream Dress!
An amazing dress. I can not believe how inexpensive the dress is for the quality and detailed work. I think this dress could be used for any type of wedding and can be dressed up with accessories. It was slightly tight in the rib cage as the other reviewers mentioned. I had an amazing seamstress let it out in that area, but everywhere else it fit perfect! Grab this dress quick!

The first dress was the one.
Fell in love with this gown when I first saw the pictures of it on the site. Was a little disappointed that I had to purchase it outright just to try it on, but luckily the first time was the charm. The size chart was helpful - I normally wear a size 4, but went with a 6 on this, which was perfect. I went to two other bridal shops to try dresses (timed with the return window for BHLDN), but nothing seemed right compared to this. Our wedding was outdoors, in a very undeveloped desert location, so I wanted something that wouldn't snag easily if caught on cactus or chaparral plants -- the material was perfect for this. Also, to be a little crass, I loved that I could get away with not wearing a bra AND wearing my most comfy granny panties on my wedding day (score two for all-day comfort!). I did have to have the gown tailored, since I loathe heels, and am not super tall, but my guy did an expert job, and in the end the dress fit like a glove. Tailoring was done for about $275, so overall I feel like I made out like an absolute bandit with this dress.

Simple and Stunning
We are organic farmers, and got married on the farm where we lived and worked in Northern California in the middle of October. This dress was PERFECT. I was so comfortable, the silk/linen fabric blend is amazingly beautiful and breathable (even though it was fall, it was in the 90's during our afternoon ceremony). The delicate detail of the eyelit motif lended a sweet and classic touch to the simple, yet elegant cut of the gown. I totally loved this dress.
I am 5'5", and weighed about 110, and (as I was breastfeeding) a full 34C. I purchased a size 6, which with alterations was just right. I was relieved, like others, that the dress was hemmable from the waist, because I certainly didn't want to loose the scalloped bottom hem, perhaps the best part of the dress!

I am 5'10, 150 and this dress was the perfect length. I just wore flat, strappy sandals. I had it brought in on the waist and hips because I wanted a little slimmer look. The seamstress did an amazing job with just a simple cut up the side seams. I had an outdoor wedding on the lake so it fit the theme of our event.
