Beautiful dress, fabulous quality, great price. I loved this dress. My only complaints had more to do with the tailoring than the dress, as it was a little loose and kept falling down (I am an A/B cup) and it was also a little too long (I didn't have it hemmed at all and was wearing cowboy boots with a low heel), so halfway through my wedding I had my bridesmaids use safety pins to hem it quickly. It is a dress that looks nice a little on the short side, I think, so that worked out really well (other than being annoying!)
Another note, I purchased a size 6, which was a little large. I have really broad shoulders and usually wear a size large in jackets and shirts, but my chest is small and so the 6 had to be taken in. Also, I lost a little weight before my wedding and so even between the fitting a week before my wedding, and the actual wedding, it became loose.
Also, I've considered having the now dirty hem at the bottom chopped off to turn this into a fun summery dress that I might actually wear again!

I had my eye on this dress once I spotted it online. When I visited the BHLDN store, it was the only dress I tried on. I knew it was the one. I was fortunate to have an opportunity to wear my dress twice - one for my ceremony in Aruba (in August) and again for our celebration with family and friends a few months later in North Carolina (in November). I received so many compliments on the dress and really felt beautiful in it. I did not have my gown altered and could have benefitted from have the stop taken in slightly. However, the thought of tweaking the dress (although definitely doable), was something I just didn't want to do unless absolutely necessary. This was the perfect dress for me. I highly recommend it!

The Perfect Dress
I had my eye on this dress for months before getting engaged as I knew I would be doing a beach wedding. Once I got engaged, I did look at other dresses, but couldn't bring myself to try anything else on until I ordered and tried on the Joss Gown. I am so happy I did this as this was the dress. Based on my measurement, I was a 4 (5'8", 140lbs), except for in the chest area where my measurement was 1 inch larger. Based off of other reviews, I went with the 4 and it fit me perfectly, not a single alteration was needed!
I have received so many compliments since my wedding a couple of weeks ago. Everyone has asked me where I got this dress. I was so comfortable in it, I could have worn the whole next day. I highly recommend this dress!

I looked everywhere for a destination wedding dress that had a less formal feel and weight but still made me feel like a bride. I also struggled a bit with finding something complimentary to my small bust, lumps, big hips and size 14 frame. Everything I tried on made me feel lumpy or huge. Every review is 100% accurate. The image on the website does not do it justice. It truly is complimentary to any shape and it is quite slimming. The white lace with ivory appliquÃ© detail is unique and beautiful but not over done. It has a girly bohemian flave without bling. Perfect for a barefoot wedding in Hawaii. I could not be more thrilled with this dress!
