I went to the BHLDN in Houston to purchase this dress and already had it in mind walking in. It is such a gorgeous and simple dress but with a topper it is truly amazing! I chose the savannah topper to go with the dress for the ceremony and removed it for the reception. I got nonstop compliments! There were some issues with the fabric during alterations, the chest area was not smooth so they had to go in and smooth out the cups, there was no bustle so one had to be added, and when the dress was taken in, the fabric bunched a bit. Otherwise, it was a gorgeous, classic looking dress that will be timeless in pictures.

Absolutely loved this dress when I tried it on at the Beverly Hills store. It's definitely a thicker and heavier fabric than I anticipated, which was actually great because I was worried it would be see-through like other reviewers had mentioned.
It's really well constructed and such a great deal for the quality. I looked at a similar quality dress for more than double the price elsewhere! It's a beautiful ivory color in person and the train is the perfect length for that wow factor. The sample I tried on was too big on me, so it did feel like I had to constantly pull it up to keep it on and it tended to bunch in the waist. However, with the proper tailoring I think the structure of the top would be enough to support the weight of the heavier fabric and smooth everything out.

The Dakota is so beautiful. Simple, elegant and so so classic. The material is strong and thick so it hides "lumps and bumps" well and no need for under garments! My tailor had a tricky time with alterations. One thing thst irritated me about BHLDN was them recommending I purchase a size up from sample 4. But the 6 was HUGE on me (I am between 4 and 6 in street clothes) and needed more work than I had anticipated (dress is very long). If the size down fits, go for it ladies! The bustle was a little hard to figure out initially and at our reception, my groom stepped on it and tore up the bustle tye so I ended up holding the train in one arm which was beautiful in and of itself! Make sure you have the seamstress or dress consultant show you how the bustle works. Also, Recommend bust cups for added structure. And I recommend trying this gown on, I wasn't going to initially but my hubby loved the style and I ended up falling in love with it!

I went into BHLDN Chicago knowing that this was likely going to be my dress, and it was absolutely perfect! It is so simple with a beautiful train and really unique fabric. It also allows you to add whatever accessories you want to make your look. I had a belt sewn on, a better bustle put in, and the sides taken in (I'm usually a 6 but ordered a 10 to have the dress fitted perfectly to me). This dress is timeless and a real stunner!
