Cascading Goddess Gown
My dream dress!
I am so in love with this dress. It is exactly what I was looking for. It is dreamy and romantic. Perfect for the outdoor wedding I will be having! I was nervous about the fit after reading the other reviews, and the only size left was a 2. I went with my gut and it fits perfectly. It is very long on me but I can tailor it. I love how soft and flowing it is!
I am 5' 3'', 127 pounds, 26.5 inch waist.

The moment I saw this dress, I knew it was "the one". I almost purchased a secondhand gown instead of this one in order to save some money. I am so happy I went with my gut and ordered this gown.
I don't live near any BHLDN stores, so I had to order the dress without first trying it on. Referencing the fit guide, my measurements were equivalent to a size 4. Reading some of the previous reviews, I purchased a size 2. There were also no more size 4 in stock. I was very nervous about the fit.
My dress came via UPS today. I anxiously awaited its arrival all morning. Once it was delivered, I immediately tried it on. To my relief, the dress fit me like a glove! It even had a little wiggle room in the bust!
For reference, I am 5'4", 125lbs, 34 bust, 26.5 waist, and because of the A-line fit, I didn't bother measuring my hips. The dress is definitely long on me, but the rest fits perfectly.
So happy with my gorgeous Catherine Deane gown!

Beautiful, but not for me
I bought this dress at the Chicago store and fell in love with it! It fit really nicely off the rack, other than the straps do run very long. But, after I looked back at photos of me wearing it, I realized the darting in the bust-line wasn't very even, there was a noticeable dip on one side of the bustline and since I'm larger on top it would have been very obvious with the dress on, so ultimately I canceled my order. I really loved the dress and it's beautiful, maybe it would be less noticeable on someone with a smaller chest.

My dream wedding dress!
I LOVE LOVE this dress. When I got the dress I ordered a 0 because I am small, but I had to get a 2 for around my rib cage. I fell in love with the bottom layers and I found an amazing seamstress to shorten each piece for me to recreate it so that you can see the tule. I also had the waist taken in and the straps shortened a little. I am 5'4" and 105 lbs, 32" bust-25" waist. I am 5'4". I got the same shoes as the photo. I really can't imagine wearing anything else. The feel and quality of this dress blew me away.
