Beautiful, but damaged
The dress itself is gorgeous--runs true to size, and truly stunning--but I received an item that had two "bald" patches in the back--the sequins had fallen off and I collected them from the bottom of the garment bag. At $1,200 plus tax, I expected much better quality-inspection.
I mailed the dress back to BHLDN, and received an email stating that they were going to "review" the damage to determine *if* I could receive a return, which is a bit surprising, since I am not at fault for receiving a damaged item. I hope they resolve this in a satisfactory manner.

Elegant and flattering
I loved this dress, but was disappointed that it was not really empire waisted as it appears in the online photos. It hit me more at the natural waist, which was not the look I was after. It hugs curves beautifully, though, and drapes very elegantly. I'm usually a size 0-2, and the 4 fit me very well, which was what the size chart recommended for my measurements.
