Briar Rose Gown
Pictures do not do this justice
This dress had just popped up on BHLDN right before I went for my appointment with them. I wasn't terribly impressed with the pictures online, thought it looked a bit cheap, etc. Then we saw it in person and decided to throw it into the mix. It is absolutely stunning in person. When I tried this dress on, it was a moment of "I had no idea I could look like this!", mom and sister got teary - the whole nine yards. Long story short, this was the dress I chose for my tiny wedding on a sand dune, and it was perfect. It was so comfortable - I just hiked it up to get to our wedding location (which required about a quarter mile walk in sand) - no problem. I loved the drama of the dress with the simple, natural beauty of the surroundings where we had our wedding. I couldn't have been happier.
For fit, I was about 145, 5'8" with an hourglass figure and I got a 4. My measurements were right in line with the fit guide, and It fit like a glove. I didn't make a single alteration and felt awesome in it.

Not flattering for curves
I was really excited to try this dress on because the back is so beautiful. Although the design is great, it just doesn't work on a curvy body. I'm an hourglass, and it just didn't offer the shaping/support I need. The dress is basically just a slip with lace on top, so it showed everything underneath. The top also offered no support. It just wasn't flattering for me!

This gown is absolutely beautiful!!! soooo feminine, sexy, romantic, and comfortable. And very flattering. I am quite petite (5'2" 105 lbs) and normally where a 0 so i ordered that size and its not quite as fitted as i'd like so i I will exchange it for the 00. It will need cups sewn in for support which is all the support i'd need (32B). The train is long so i will need to have that hemmed.. Again, this dress is so beautiful! Very different too.
I attached a couple pics so you could see the dress on a real person :) and not just a 6+ft tall shopped model.
