Simple, classic, flattering
I bought this dress as soon as it went on sale. When it finally arrived, I knew it was it. I'd imagined wearing something all lace, but I was really happy with the elegant, simplicity of this dress. Plus it is very flattering, very form fitting. I did have to get the top altered, it was too big. I also had the layer beneath the skirt loosened as it was hard to walk in.

This was my wedding dress and I loved it.
Although I agree, the dress runs large, after alterations and ordering a size down it worked brilliantly. I am usually a size 6 and ordered a 4 as recommended and it was still slightly large. it fit alright in the hips but not so much up top. I loved the lace details and the swanky train. I got many compliments on the dress and felt very happy with it! I tagged a few pictures of the dress on BHDLN's facebook page as well. Hope this helps!

This is it!
I was apprehensive about ordering a gown online, but the other reviews and sizing guides are accurate. I ordered a 6 based on my measurements 37-29-39. The waist and hips fit perfectly. The bust is large and I will need a combination of cups sewn in and it taken in a bit to get the correct fit. I was worried this was a dress for a skinny person but the fabric is the perfect weight, not too heavy but doesn't show every lump and bump either. Lightweight spanx should be fine. The color is a nice ivory that looks great with my lighter skin tone and the contrast of white lace. I still need to meet with my tailor, but I'm wondering what others have done for a bustle for dancing?

I purchased a 0 based on other reviews. Like many other reviewers, I thought the top had an odd fit. Overall the dress probably flatters more curvy women.. it does not have much shape to it. The lace shoulder pieces in the front seemed very wide, and the closure on the back was higher on me than on the model. Overall ended up being pretty awkward and was returned.
The quality seemed fine.
