This dress was pretty and whimsical. My wedding has more of a romantic feel so this dress wasn't the one for me. The top was really casual looking and very tight, I am a size 4 dress, but would have had to go up to a size 6 for the top to fit which would have made the dress too big everywhere else, definitely would have needed to be altered for length as well. I would give this dress a pretty/"average" rating, I liked it, but not for a formal/romantic wedding. I included an imagine, for reference- I am 5'1" and 120lbs.

Beautiful, lightweight, romantic dress
I tried this dress on at the BHLDN store in NYC. It is truly a beautiful dress, and very flattering. It didn't compare with the Penelope dress for me- which will be my choice- but for someone who is looking for a simple, elegant dress for an outdoor ceremony or destination wedding, this could be a great choice. It was extremely lightweight and easy to move in, which I think was my favorite aspect of the dress. The skirt is fun and flowy. I was a bit disappointed in the material at the top, which was thicker and less delicate that I thought it would be based on the photos. Still beautiful- just not my choice!

I have been dreaming about trying this dress on since I saw it online. I had a few others in mind but this dress tugged at my heart. Needless to say I was so thrilled when I went to the DC store in Georgetown and it was even prettier in person and on!! The dress is simple, classic shape, with just enough detail to make it totally unique to the bride when accessorizing. Oddly I went in for the Ivory gown but once I saw the blush gown I fell in love! It is beautiful and so subtle yet makes it different than just your every day white/ivory gown. The material is light, the fit is comfortable I can totally see myself dancing all night long and not wanting to take this dress off. I am normally a size 4 and it fit like it was made for me! I intend to have a tailor add some cups so I won't have to worry with a bra. I am 5'4" even with a 3 inch heel I need to take it up at least 3 more inches so I'm not tripping over it! Can't wait to wear this pink gown on the beach in NC next summer!!

I went to the trunk show in Florida with a few dresses in mind that I definitely wanted to try. This style was at the top of my list and it did not disappoint! The dress fits pretty true to size. I am 5'5"/ 120lbs and ordered the size 2 which fits perfect! I am adding bust cups (I'm very small chested) and having it shortened, but otherwise it fit great! I am also pairing it with a skinny jeweled sash for a little bling rather than the ribbon sash that comes with it. The under lining is a little more of a shiny champagne color than it appears in pictures which I love! This dress is also very comfortable and flowy! I can't wait to wear it for my September wedding!!!
