After trying on dress after dress that just didn't "Wow" me, I decided to take a chance and order this dress online just to see how it would compare to the other dresses I had tried on. When it came in I was completely stunned at how perfect it fit, and how beautiful it is in person! Not to mention the beautiful packaging that it came in. It is also suprisingly light weight.
Words cannot do this dress justice, it is simply the perfect dress for me! I am 5'9, 150 pounds and I ordered a size 6 with the Meadow Sash belt around the waist. I agree with all of the other reviews, this dress is AMAZING!

I was comfortable the whole evening. It was flattering and beautiful. The size chart is helpful when ordering- and alterations simple.

I must begin by saying that the pictures on the website do not do justice to the splendour of this gown. It is ten times more beautiful in person. I read the reviews carefully and ordered a size 00 according to my measurements (31.5/25.5/36.4).
My first impression was incredible. The lace details look amazing, the ivory colour has a very slight shimmer that adds an extra glam, the material is incredibly soft and comfortable, the cut is perfect for a petite frame altough the bust runs a tad larger than expected. This problem can easily be fixed with the help of a padded bra. The zip at the back and button provide a very secure fit in order to avoid the clivage to show too much (esp if you have a small bosom).
I was amazed at how easy it was to pass on. Very handy on the day if you do not want to ruin your hair/makeup. The material glides on the skin while fitting like a glove. It hugs the right curves without being skin tight. I will not even need to hem the bottom as it falls perfectly with 8 cm heels (I'm 5'4).
Simple, feminine, sexy, cute, timeless.... All in all, this dress has exceeded my expectations. The quality that you get at this price is unbeatable. This little gem from Tadashi Shoji truly is a rare find!

This is it!
This dress is exactly what I envisioned wearing, and fits perfectly! I was terrified to order my dress online, but I couldn't find any wedding dresses that I liked within my budget that didn't look cheap. Once I saw this gown online, I knew it was the one. My friends thought I was nuts for ordering a dress without ever trying it on but I went by my measurements and ordered a 12 (for reference, my bridal size is a 14). This dress fits my body PERFECTLY. I will need to get it hemmed but considering I am 5'2 this is to be expected. One thing to keep in mind is that the undergarments you wear underneath this gown must be completely smooth (spanx will be perfect, but a corset with any boning will definitely show through this gown). That being said, this is the one. It is gorgeous and I feel beautiful in it. I could not be happier. And I know my man will love how I look in this. Thank you BHLDN for allowing me to stick to my budget AND get such a gorgeous dress!!
