I went to bhldn in nyc to try this dress on amongst six others and this one was the winner. It's much more beautiful in person. It's very glamorous and elegant and has a vintage style to it that I love. The sparkle on the dress trickles down to the almost the bottom of the dress which is a very nice touch. I tried on the sample size 4 and it was a bit tight at the hips. I have curvy hips, and athletic build. Also the train of the dress is a bit long and I'm concerned I might trip on it, but I am overlooking that since it really is a beautiful dress that I haven't seen anywhere else. They took my measurements and recommended I get the size 6. The dress itself does not have much give and I think it runs true to size since I typically wear Medium tops and bottoms sized 27-28. Can't wait for my love to see me in it on our special day!

Gorgeous and Flattering
I tried this dress on yesterday for my November wedding in Norfolk, VA. I never felt more elegant in my life. This dress is insane looking in person- the pictures don't even come close. It was the only dress out of the 10 or 12 I tried that I just couldn't stop smiling in- and the looks on my mom and sister's faces definitely helped. This dress must be tried on in order to understand how beautiful it is. It wasn't even on my top 5 favorites before trying it on, and now it is my wedding dress. Very unique, feminine and classic at the same time. Extremely comfortable and feels like a million bucks.
*Make sure you don't overlook this gown.

Stunning detail and flattering fit
I bought this dress after trying it on in the Chicago BHLDN store. It felt exquisite on the top and a little ethereal on the bottom. The back is very flattering as well. As a long and lean lady, this dress was perfect.

Unique and Beautiful
Christine from the Chestnut Hill, Mass. store helped me with this dress, and she along with everyone else who worked there was so nice and accommodating. This picture doesn't do this dress any justice, it's a stunning gown with just the right amount of detail. I fell in love with it once it was on. <3 BHLDN
