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!

I LOVE MY JOSS GOWN
I have received more compliments on this dress than anything else. I loved it. It was beautiful and fit me like a glove. I did have it altered a tad. I added cups and had it hemmed as well as added some boning and sewed in a BHLDN belt.
I am a 4 and the 4 fit perfectly so its pretty true to your size.
It was easy to move in. easy to clean afterwards as well.
The only thing I would recommend is that you take it out of the bag when you get it and put it into a different garmet bag... Everything I purchased from BHLDN had a smell that was very hard to get rid of. If you do this right away you should have no problems.
BEAUTIFUL AFFORDABLE GOWN.
