Queen Anne Dress
I fell in love with this dress the first time I saw it, and when it went on sale I knew I had to get it before I couldn't! The dress arrived in a timely fashion, in a very unassuming box. I encountered one issue with the dress, the thin piece of string that holds the ribbon at the correct height was ripped. The sizing on the dress is very bizarre! I measured myself according to the fit guide, and I came in at a 12. I am usually a 6, sometimes a 4, but I am very busty. The dress fits my bust very well, but is pretty big everywhere else, especially the lace part above the sweetheart neckline. I will definitely have to get the dress taken in. But for the price, it is a steal! Also, the photo makes the dress look like it is knee length, it is not! The dress comes to my mid-calf, but perhaps this is a sizing issue?

Queen Anne Sizing
I ordered the Queen Anne dress - which is absolutely stunning, but unfortunately it fits MUCH bigger than anticipated.
I am petite, I ordered a size 0, which should fit (according to the measurements) if not be a bit snug, and I feel like a little kid in my mum's dress.
It is beautiful, however I will have to get the entire dress altered as it doesn't fit at all.
I took a risk ordering it online, so I knew there was a chance it wouldn't fit perfectly, but I never expected it to be so huge.
Just a warning for all the petite ladies! Nothing against BHLDN. I love everything they have and they have been wonderful with all of my purchases.

I just received this dress about a week ago, and while it's very beautiful, it's going back. The gold lace is lovely, and I love the length. There is a petticoat underneath that fits a little odd on me. Pretty disappointed in the packaging - I realize I bought it on sale, but it came in a plastic bag in a beat up brown box. No pretty box, no ribbon. It leaves a lot to be desired when you're opening up your potential wedding dress!

I love this dress! I was worried it wouldn't fit right but it fit like a glove. Follow the measurements given and the dress should fit since it seems to run small. I ordered a size 6 and couldn't have been happier. I do have to get the top shorted a tiny bit so it's not saggy but other than that, it's gorgeous and well worth it.
