Fit for a Princess
This gown was just so much fun. You can't tell from the photos, but the layers upon layers of the skirt are just made of the softest tulle I have ever put on.I felt as though I was floating on a cloud while walking around in that dress. It also made for a very stunning train. Despite the multitude of layers, it was very light and comfortable to wear (something I've noticed with BHLDN gowns!).
Illusion necklines are very popular at the moment and this one does not disappoint. The intricate lace detailing was an absolute dream. I also noticed that the back lace panel was sheer and not lined, which added an extra oomph to the dress without being too scandalous :p
Unfortunately, this was not the look that I was going for on my wedding day, but it is an absolutely stunning gown!

I am normally a size 12/14 and the 12 sample size was a bit small compared to the other dresses but beautiful none the less. This dress is flattering to lots of figures and the lining is very subtle, not cheap looking. I personally love it without the sash because it shows the lace detail. Love Love Love!

I have only worn a size zero.. So when I read to order a size down I was apprehensive. I ordered a zero and it fits beautifully! I am petite on top so the bust is larger than I'd like... should be simple to alter as well as the length... But the overall fit with the waist, neckline, straps, etc was great! This dress is even more beautiful in person, so soft, and not too heavy. Very angelic. Extremely pleased with my purchase!!!

I have admired this dress for a long time, but it was even more beautiful in person! The lace is organic and delicate, and the back reveals just enough. In the dim light of the Seattle BHLDN, this dress had a strong nude tone (which may because the slip was amaretto). I was the first person to try their sample on (it had been unpacked and steamed minutes before I wore it), so that may have contributed to it. What disappointed me most about this dress was the length; it was too short on me. I am 6' but I have never tried on a wedding dress that was too short. I love this dress, and I've been in contact with a seamstress, but the length may prevent me from purchasing it.
