Rated 5 out of 5 This is the dress...
This was the first dress I fell in love with, and no matter how many others I tried on, I always came back to the Livia. I was married 11/8/15 on the Big Island of Hawaii, second marriage. I'm a bit bigger up top and didn't want to go braless so I wore a backless strapless (stick on type) bra which was a bit tricky because the wedding was outside. I wore the Adjuore fitted belt with it and a lovely back drop necklace I found on Etsy. I felt pretty that day! You will LOVE this gown.

Rated 5 out of 5 Enchanting. Classy. Stunning. Sexy.
As soon as I saw this dress on bhldn.com, I knew I had to have it. The 6 was too big for my frame so I sized down. I'm 5'8", 145lbs, and between a 36C and a 36D. The 4 fit almost perfectly. I had the straps taken up just a bit, the front sewn shut to prevent "spillage", soft bust cups put in, and a bustle added so I could dance the night away without tripping on it. The shapewear did nothing for me as I couldn't find any that fit right. I ended up buying a pair of laser cut, nude thongs from Victoriaâ??s Secret Pink line. You couldn't tell I had anything on. This dress is everything if you are looking for something classy, sexy, stunning, easy to move in, and enchanting! Look no further.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Heycookie6 Loved my dress.
I wore this dress on my wedding day last weekend, and it was perfect. I had minor alterations just to take in the straps, and had cups sewed in. You just have to find the right undergarments (I wore shapes). The customer service was excellent at the Chestnut Hill store, and my dress arrived a week after I ordered it. I would recommend BHLDN to any bride.

This is the dress I'm getting married in this October.
This dress isn't at all what I was looking for, I tried it on to see something different and fell in love. I ended up buying about 1 size up so I had a little movement in the hip. I think without doing that it would have clung and bunched a bit in an unflattering way. I then altered the top down about 1-2 sizes.
Underneath I'm wearing a slimming shapewear that is high-wasted (make sure it doesn't show in the back, mine doesn't), that goes all the way down to mid thigh. I found that lower waisted shapewear shows through and you also want lower thigh length to make sure it doesn't roll up throughout the day.
I also noticed some comments asking what bra to wear-- my answer is none! I am a 34C and my seamstress sewed supporting cups in the top. I've had this done before and it works beautifully! Very secure and no chance of any lines or straps poking out where they shouldn't be.
Overall, I am in love with this dress! It looks absolutely beautiful and I can't wait to wear it on my wedding day.
